Congrats, Angie! Angelina told Vanity Fair that she picked up the writing bug right after she got the flu and well, that whole directing thing, well it just landed right on her lap. And she's ever so scared about it what people will make of it.
We remind you that Pretty Boring is a huge Jolie fan - so anything said here is meant with hugs and side order of tough love. Heck, some-days that Brangelina tribe is nothing but kin-folk to us, at least in our imagination.
"In the Land of Blood and Honey" does make her screenwriting and behind-the-cam-stint, set in some 90's Bosnian Civil War -- what? really?
Is that half-a-yawn we see out there? Seriously, we'll also need at least two extra strong cups of java to get past the credits. We're sure there's some very important save-the world-message that we less attractive folk need shoved down our throats. And we're ready for that medicine.
"I've never felt more exposed. My whole career, I've hidden behind other people's words," Jolie tells the Mag, "You feel ridiculous when you get something wrong."
Wrong? Got us a hunkering that maybe the real drama went down when the cameras stopped rolling.
And somebody please remind Jolie that she's easy on the eyes and in our great world she operates on a higher plane of existence.
