Angelina Jolie Had ‘breakdown’ Making ‘In The Land Of Blood And Honey’, ANGELINA Jolie said she had a “complete meltdown” while working on her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, a love story set during the Bosnian War.
Jolie revealed in an online chat airing on the website LiveStream.com that she felt an emotional surge while making the movie, which explores the theme of violence during war.
“I had a complete emotional breakdown in the shower,” Jolie said about one of her lowest moments.
“Brad [Pitt] found me just crying. I suddenly felt the responsibility and I felt very small and, who am I to take this on? And think that I could make a difference? What have I done? … I had a complete meltdown.”
When asked why it was important for her to tell a story about the Bosnian War, Jolie replied, “How could it not be?”
“It is a war that happened in our generation, to our generation,” she continued.
“[The film's star, actress Vanessa Glodjo,] herself was trapped inside the siege for almost four years. There were rape camps and concentration camps. It was such a horrible time in our history and it was relatively ignored by the international community. It’s something we should all revisit so we make sure it does not happen again,” said Jolie, 36.
A lighter moment in Thursday night’s online chat came when Jolie’s oldest son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, wrote a question for his mum.
“Maddox, hi honey,” said Jolie beaming, before reading his question out loud. “What is your favourite scene in the movie?”
Jolie answered, “My favorite scene in the movie is when the sisters are reunited. It’s one of the few happier moments.”
In the Land of Blood and Honey received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.
