Angelina Jolie opened up about her her new role in ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’ and admitted that she related to her character ‘feels as broken’ and ‘disturbed.’
Angelina Jolie is back with her new thriller performance in ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead.”
‘I Am Not Used To Play American’
The Eternals star described on the Australian morning show, “Strangely enough, I am an American, but I realized that I am not used to playing an American. So to do this regularly, an American woman felt more challenging than even a crazy Maleficent. ”
“I think people can understand her better, they can relate to feel broken, confused, imperfect,” she said of her character Hannah. “Maybe she’s closer to me than the other characters.”
Movie Story Line
The film follows a teenager, played by 14-year-old Finn Little, who testifies to the murder of her father and continues with Angelina’s character Hannah, a firefighter in Montana with PTSD. The two tried to flee from the killers.
The film was shot in New Mexico back in the summer of 2019, three years after she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, 57.
At that time Brad was seen visiting her and their children – Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, 12-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – even though they are fighting in legal court.
Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt
Sadly the couple has not yet resolved their divorce and in court documents filed on March 12, Angelina said she had “evidence and authority” to support her allegations of domestic violence that she alleged against Brad.
Angelina and Brad have been together for over ten years and have been married for over two years before divorce.
The separation soon deteriorated, especially when it came to custody of their six children, who were still young at the time.
After the split, Brad was investigated for child abuse involving an incident with the pair’s then-15-year-old son, Maddox.The details of the alleged incident, which took place on a private plane, were not publicized. Brad was cleared by both the Department of Child and Family Services and the FBI in Nov. 2016.
The trial was set to begin on November 2018, but Brad and Angelina were able to reach an agreement to avoid a court battle. Brad’s retention is still less than 50%, but he saw the kids often too.
The dedicated mother spends a lot of quality time with her children outside and in Los Angeles stores.
She also explained in a new interview why she believes it is “important” to be with them so much after her breakup with Brad.
“The last few years, I haven’t been able to direct. I’ve been home much more — I’ve done a few films, but mostly home,” she said on ITV’s Lorraine while discussing her new thriller, Those Who Wish Me Dead. “But [these are] very important years to be home. For a certain time in my family I’ve needed to be home.”
