Ethan Hawke found he had more friends whilst he worked with Angelina Jolie - because his pals all wanted to visit him so they could meet the Hollywood babe.

Hawke and Jolie filmed Taking Lives together last summer (03), and Hawke found the presence of his sexy co-star drew his pals to the Canadian set.

He laughs, "Everybody wanted to come. I've never gotten so many calls, 'Hey, when can I visit?'"

However, Hawke understood why his friends were so desperate to meet the TOMB RAIDER star.

He says, "She's ravishingly beautiful and never gets old and never gets boring.

"She is a really incredible woman, and I liked her."
