Angelina Jolie's godmother, actress Jacqueline Bisset, has revealed her role was chopped from "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" because she and a co-actor were "too British."

The 77-year-old actress talked about the 2005 action-comedy flick starring Jolie and her ex-husband Brad Pitt in an interview with People Thursday.

"The first film I got cut out of was ['Mr. & Mrs. Smith'] with Angelina," she told the outlet.

According to the actress, she and Terence Stamp were supposed to play Jolie and Pitt's bosses in the movie, adding that these characters were "small parts." Unfortunately, things didn't work.

"They recast it, with apparently two other actors," she continued. "They said we were too British."

Later, Angela Bassett and Keith David replaced Bisset and Stamp in the movie.

Bisset then shared how she became Jolie's godmother, noting that she and the actress' late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, were friends.

"I met her around 1971 when I was making a movie with director Maximilian Schell and Jon Voight, who [Bertrand] was married to at the time," Bisset recalled. "We became friends, and she asked me to be her godmother when Angie was in the tummy."

The "Rich and Famous" star went on to praise Jolie and called her "extraordinary." She further noted, "[Jolie] Her whole aura is breathtaking, and it's amazing how much she’s changed in different stages [of life]. She's evolved so much."

In the interview, Bisset also shared that she loves working despite her age and claimed it gives her the "real buzz." Apparently, she enjoys "being around people" that she "wouldn't meet otherwise."

"There are lots of things I'd like to do and I'd like to work with lots of people," she added. "I like Robert De Niro very much. I don't know what show I would be put in with him. I'd probably be put in as his mother."

Bisset's newly released movie, "Birds of Paradise," came out on Sept. 24. It is currently streaming on Amazon Prime. The actress will be next seen in the movie "Loren & Rose," which is currently under post-production.

Jolie, on the other hand, will be seen in Marvel's upcoming movie "Eternals," which is slated for release on Nov. 5.
