Several A-list celebrities popped up and gave fans something to talk about Thursday during the first day of Comic-Con 2010 in San Diego.

Angelina Jolie stunned fans at Comic-Con as she promoted her spy action-thriller, "Salt," which opens in theaters Friday.

Jolie described how she performed her own stunts in "Salt" and recounted anon-set injury to the audience that left her scarred.

Jolie says she sliced open part of her face just above her nosewhen tumbling into a doorway with a gun. She first thought shesuffered a concussion because she couldn't hear anything but laterrealized she was wearing earplugs.

Michelle Rodriguez, who played Ana Lucia in "LOST" and the pilot Trudy Chacon from "Avatar," spoke her mind during the "Battle: Los Angeles" panel as she stood up for her masculine character roles.

An audience member asked Rodriguez about her reputation for playing females who kickbutt and if she would consider a more feminine or dramatic character role.

She responded, "What, you mean like get raped and win an Oscar?"

Bruce Willis surprised fans at Comic-Con when he stopped by the San Diego Convention Center to thank Sylvester Stallone for casting him in "The Expendables."

Willis later joined the cast of "Red" in which he described his experience as a blast. He said the fun atmosphere made him feel like he wasn't at work.

Before ending the "Red" panel discussion, Willis mentioned that this was his first time at Comic-Con and thanked all of the fans.

Comic-Con runs through Sunday at the San Diego Convention Center.
