"I've never been comfortable as an actor; I've never loved being in front of the camera," she said. "I didn't ever think I could direct, but I hope I'm able to have a career at it because I'm much happier."
Jolie has two films under her belt; “The Land of Blood and Honey” and “Unbroken.” Her third time behind the camera, “By the Sea,” stars her and husband Brad Pitt.
The film follows the character of Vanessa, a former dancer, and her husband Roland, an American writer, as they travel through France in the 1970s.
Angelina explained, "Compared to Unbroken, this film is a walk in the park," adding, "The tricky thing is directing myself and directing Brad. It's hard, dramatic material, and we're balancing."
She continued, "It's a heavy film, and it's not easy for us. But even as you struggle through it, you're in the trenches together and you don't expect it to be easy. We're challenging each other and that's a really good thing."
