The meeting led to the Hollywood legend casting Jolie in 2008 drama Changeling, in a role which won her an Oscar nomination, and she thanked King for his input during an appearance on the show on Wednesday (08Nov10).
She says, "You know, it's funny. I had never met Clint before and I met him the last time I was in your studio. And he was just coming off. And I was in the waiting room. And it was the first time we met. And we joked that we really, really wanted to work together.
"And I told him how crazy I was about him and his films. And we ate, you know, in your little craft service in the back. And it was the beginning - I think a few months later we decided to do Changeling."
King adds, "So, once again... this show is part of history."
