Grendel's Mother in BEOWULF
When the CGI/animated adaptation of Beowulf opened in November 2007, movie watchers got to see Angelina Jolie naked, dripping with gold liquid, in the role of the mother of the monster/villain Grendel. Well... sort of....
Robert Zemeckis directed this film, which is entirely rendered with CGI. Using motion capture processes, the actors were filmed and then their likenesses and performances were translated via digitally-created recreations. Similar methods were how Andy Serkis portrayed Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and how Bill Nighy was motion-captured for his performance as Davy Jones in the second and third Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
So, although the onscreen Angie is very sexy and just a touch alien, what you see here is how she appeared on the set and during actual filming. All those little balls are key animation points used by the computer to recreate specific motions and facial expressions.

Action Angie! - five recommendations from Angie's more action-oriented movie roles
Probably the most-discussed action film of Angelina's career is MR. & MRS. SMITH. She plays the wife half of a jaded and bored married couple who don't know each actually works as a secret agent/assasin. Assigned to hit each other (shades of Prizzi's Honor) they actually discover their passion for each other and then have to survive everyone else out to get them.
The action role that really made gamer-geeks everywhere take notice of her was her portrayal of videogame babe Lara Croft.
