Exclusive! Angelina Jolie Remembers Mom in Proud Moment
In part two of "Extra's" exclusive interview with Angelina Jolie in Sarajevo, the actress reminisced about her late mother, who would've been so proud of her film, "In the Land of Blood and Honey."
Jolie's mom, Marcheline Bertrand, died in 2007 of ovarian cancer, and Angie recalled, "She lived a beautiful life. She was nothing but gracious and kind and she was proud at the end of her life when we talked about different things she wasn't able to do. She didn't have the acting career she wanted. She didn't have the writing career she wanted."
The 36-year-old added, "And she had absolutely no regrets because she was happy to be a mother."
The director, whose dramatic love story won a PGA Award and an NAACP Image Award, pointed out, "I didn't make this film wanting to become a director. I made this film because I cared about the subject matter."
When asked if she was still up for directing Brad Pitt, Jolie chuckled, "What day is it?" and added, "The chance to work with him is a pretty great opportunity, so I would be a lucky director to have him."
