MTV News caught up with the star this week in Washington, D.C., where Jolie was promoting “Salt,” and we had to ask about the tattoo. But the actress was tight-lipped about what the ink, on her inner thigh, actually said.

“Um, it’s for Brad,” Jolie demurred with a smile.
She was more open, she said, when it comes to her personal life.
“I actually think it’s important to be completely honest, however difficult that may be,” Jolie told us about what makes a relationship successful. “I’m bad at hiding secrets anyway,” she added.
While we won’t speculate on the content of her latest tattoo (that’s what the zoom feature on Photoshop is for), the balance of Jolie’s tattoos more or less chronicle her romantic history, and offer some insight into her philosophies about love and life. On her shoulder, for instance, is a Buddhist Pali incantation that offers such wisdom as “if you acquire riches, may they remain yours always,” and on her hip is a Latin inscription: “quod me nutrit me destruit,” which translates to “what nourishes me, destroys me.”
Jolie also revealed that her partner, Pitt, had yet to see the action flick, which opens July 23.
“He hasn’t seen the movie,” she said. “Maybe he’ll question me after he sees it,” she joked of playing a string of wives-with-secrets. Jolie admitted she couldn’t be sure how her choice in roles might affect their offscreen relationship. But she was sure Pitt would enjoy “Salt.”
“Oh, of course,” Jolie said. “He was there for the shooting and he would come to set and he’d seen some of the stunt sequences and stuff. He thinks it looks cool and all of that, but he hasn’t seen the whole thing. He’ll see it at the premiere.”
