Melbourne: Actress Angelina Jolie has revealed that she could not turn down the offer of ‘The Tourist’ with Johnny Depp because of the two-month shoot in Italy with the "extraordinary" actor.

"I got to spend two months in Venice filming, which nobody gets to do, with a co-star who``s so much fun and so lovely - it``s hard to say no to," the Age quoted her as telling radio host Kyle Sandilands.

"(Depp) is one of those artists that feels like he``s from another time. He``s an extraordinary painter, he``s a great musician, he``s a great actor - he``s a renaissance man in the greatest way.

"(And) he is one of the most real people you will ever meet," she added.
