Screen siren Angelina Jolie is forbidden from calling her upcoming movie MR AND MRS SMITH a black comedy, because producers fear the label will put audiences off.

The movie, which also stars Brad Pitt, centres around husband and wife assassins hired to kill each other, but Hollywood moguls insist the description 'black comedy' is too ominous.

She says, "I'm not supposed to say 'black comedy', apparently, because they don't do well financially.

"But I mean, we try to kill each other. That's not a normal comedy as far as I'm concerned."
