Angelina Jolie is a certified Hollywood A-lister.

The Hollywood actress just revealed her training regimen to prepare for her role as Thena for Marvel's Eternals. 

After gaining prominence in the late 90s and early 2000s, Jolie starred in iconic action movies like 2001's Tomb Raider.

Jolie also starred in other action movies such as 2005's Mr. and Mrs. Smith, 2008's Wanted, and 2010's Salt.

However, Jolie revealed that she didn't go through the usual training process to prepare for Eternals.

Because the MCU film will make heavy use of CGI, Jolie had to train with several weapons that she wouldn't even be able to wield and use while filming.

She describes the experience as something similar to a "puzzle" and admitted that she felt a "little nuts".

Jolie and the rest of Marvel's Eternal's cast make up the titular team of superpowered alien beings.

Together, they'll have to defend the earth against their evil counterparts, the Deviants. 

Because of social media, fans have had a much closer look than ever before at how stars prepare for their upcoming roles.

While Jolie wasn't as candid as the Rock for example, we can expect her performance in MCU's Eternals to get people talking on November 5.
