Jolie hopes she will direct more. “I love telling stories. I'm not motivated to have a big career as a director. I'm motivated to get the chance to tell these kinds of stories. So, if they come and I get the opportunity, I would love to."

The Oscar winner explained why telling the amazing survival story of Olympic runner and WWII vet Louis Zamperini was so important. "We did not want to make a film about this side and that side, good and evil. There is nothing clean like that in war ever. There are casualties on both sides and suffering on both sides, so it wasn't to judge history, it was to look at these men and their experiences. In the end, Louis' relationship with Japan was actually quite a beautiful one."
