In November 2014, Original Sin actress Angelina Jolie looked stunning in white while showing off her sexy feet in nude shoes on the red carpet of the ‘Unbroken’ premiere held at the Odeon Leicester Square in London, England.

13 years earlier, she starred opposite Antonio Banderas as his mail-order bride Julia Russell/Bonny Castle in the poorly received 2001 erotic thriller film Original Sin.

For her work in Original Sin and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Angelina Jolie was nominated for a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress.

“It seems ridiculous to put these two in a romantic melodrama; their faces alone are melodramatic enough. It’s hard to keep a straight face just thinking of Mr. Banderas and Ms. Jolie in the same shot, but ”Original Sin” will bore the giggles right out of you,” The New York Times wrote in its review.

Filmed in England and Mexico in early 2000, the movie was released in the United States on August 3, 2001. Antonio Banderas turned 41 on August 10, 2001, and Angelina Jolie celebrated her 26th birthday on June 4, 2001.

Containing a number of steamy sex scenes, Banderas and Jolie were rumored to have had unsimulated sex while filming Original Sin. Jolie discussed the rumors in an interview with ABC News’ Good Morning America in 2001.

“You’re talking about a man who is deeply in love with his wife [actress Melanie Griffith], and married, he has beautiful children with her, and they’re such a great family. And I’m madly in love my husband [actor Billy Bob Thornton], we have such a great relationship, and the idea that either one of us would, would want anything more than our marriages is really insulting and angering,” she said.

“You know, they’d pick up on that, and a lot of the other things they can’t talk about because it’s a thriller and there are secrets, and so you can’t talk about the other things,” Jolie insisted.

“And so the obvious aspect of it is that it’s a very passionate film. I didn’t want to do a sexy movie — that wasn’t what I was out to do. I wanted to do a film about characters, and explore why different things come out in different ways in our life,” she added.

For the Unbroken premiere in London, the then 39-year-old actress and director donned a white silk-crepe tailored pencil dress from the Ralph & Russo Spring 2014 Couture collection featuring a bolero cape.

She accessorized with Beladora vintage earrings and unfortunately decided to pair her white gown with boring nude pumps.

Do you agree that Angelina should have opted for a pair of pumps in a different color?
