Angelina Jolie might be called as a prosecution witness for her "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" movie stunt double who is suing News Corp. for hacking into her voice messages to glean gossip on the Hollywood superstar and hubby Brad Pitt, according to The Hollywood Reporter on Friday.

Stunt double Eunice Huthart, the godmother of the couple's first biological child,
is asking a California judge to allow her lawsuit against News Corp to go forward in Tinseltown, where some of her possible witnesses reside.

"Some of Plaintiff’s potential witnesses who are involved with her and/or [Huthart's company] Pump Fitness, such as Ms. Jolie, are located in California," the complaint reads.

In her complaint, Huthart says she developed a close relationship with the actress and became a person of interest to Glen Mulcaire, the private investigator who hacked into cellphones of celebrities for the now-defunct British tabloid News of the World.

Huthart says the interest in her voice mails "derived entirely from her personal and professional relationships to celebrities, such as Jolie and Brad Pitt, which are a product of her Hollywood-based career," and that the damage she experienced was to "her professional reputation within the California-based television and film industry."

"Because she did not receive messages ... her professional reliability was compromised, and because confidential information from messages on her voice mail was published, her discretion and trustworthiness were compromised," the complaint reads.
