Angelina Jolie: More 'Marie Claire' Pics!
The 36-year-old actress spoke about her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey. Check it:
On writing the movie during downtime: “Some of the very darkest sections were probably conceived in Shiloh‘s art class; I was in the back corner, waiting for the kids to finish. And then somehow it slowly ended up being read by Brad, and then friends. There was a discussion of making it, and I just was terrified to hand it over to anybody. It wasn’t that I said, ‘I’m going to write something, and I want to direct it.’”
On putting herself in others’ shoes: “I obviously put myself in the position of what would have happened if I were in this situation. If I were in love with somebody and we happened to be from separate sides of the conflict but we were in love before the conflict started, how far would I be able to go? How much could I be open to, and when would I start to close off? Is it love, or is it survival?”
