What does it mean by "with a twist" from the paragraph below?
"I was to interview Angelina Jolie in December 2004 at Pinewood Studios. I had studied her press cuttings, watched her movies, looked at the ‘froth of life’ magazines and read the gossip, and was unsure whether there was much point to the interview. She sounded like a Hollywood airhead, but with a twist."

Sorry no. I did look it up in dictionary before I came here for help.
It basically means that there is something surprising or unexpected about her. The "twist" in a film plot usually comes towards the end, just as you think you know what is going on, and the film-maker throws in a plot "twist" which really surprises you. If you have seen "The Sixth Sense" or "The Usual Suspects", you will know that something very surprising happens at the end - that's the twist.
As far as a person is concerned, it means that you think you know them (or know about them), but it turns out that there is something extra and surprising. With the piece you posted, we don't know what the twist is but the writer clearly thinks that although Angelina Jolie appears to just be another standard Hollywood airhead, there is something else surprising about her. Perhaps later in the piece, we find out what that twist is.
