Get in: Angelina, sporting a blonde wig, plays the role of CIA officer Evelyn A Salt, who is accused of being a Russian spy

One moment she is seen running through traffic in Washington DC and the next climbing along the side of a building in New York as a window blows out.

Angelina Jolie certainly puts her all into filming, that's for sure.

The 33-year-old has been filming the action packed scenes for 'Salt' in which she plays a CIA officer on a mission to clear her name after she is accused of being a Russian sleeper agent, MailOnline reported.

Wearing a blonde wig, shards of glass and smoke could be seen blown out of a window a few feet from her in Midtown Manhattan.

She was again sporting a nasty cut to her knee - thought to be just make-up - which was visible during the scenes in Washington.

The Hollywood star's presence caused traffic to come to a standstill in the capital as she darted through vehicles and a crowd of extras, while cameramen could be seen hoisted on a cherry picker to get aerial shots.

Jolie caused a buzz amongst the local community as she filmed her scenes for the flick, due out in cinemas next summer.

'I was surprised at how short she is,' worker Alexandra Kosmides told New Channel 8.

'If Angelina is here, Brad is here,' tourist Lindsay Galley added.

The film sees her character fighting to prove she is an American patriot after she is accused of being a Russian mole.

'She's a character you never know,' the film's producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura said.

'People who think they know the real her may or may not. Those who think they can tell whether she's in a disguise also may or may not.

'She tells you her agenda, but are you supposed to believe it?'

Husband Brad Pitt has accompanied his wife on the trip to Washington and was seen out with daughters Shiloh, two, and Zahara, four, over the weekend.

The Hollywood couple are reported to have called Zimbabwe's Premier Morgan Tsvangirai to offer condolences over his wife Susan's death in a car crash last week, it emerged today.

'He didn't manage to speak to them because the line was disconnected,' the premier's aide told reporters at Tsvangirai's home, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The couple are active in charity work around the world, but have no apparent links to Zimbabwe in particular.

Jolie gave birth to one of their children in nearby Namibia and the couple have adopted Ethiopian-born Zahara, among their six children.
