Angelina Jolie enjoyed learning to fly so much, she studied British and American aeronautics to make sure she can take to the skies anywhere in the world.

The TOMB RAIDER star is in the throes of buying her first plane after admitting she loved learning how to become a pilot.

She says, "I'm taking the English and the American courses at the same time. In America there's one test; in England there are eight.

"This is the hardest thing I've ever done - just the work of it and the commitment and how long it's taken. The classes, the science and math of it. Meteorology. Navigation. All of it.

"I'm more careful about flying than I've been about anything."
