Angelina Jolie Stunning Newsweek Cover Picture

Angelina Jolie Strikes a Pose For the Cover of Newsweek

Angelina Jolie covers Newsweek's new edition and, inside the issue, speaks about her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey. The image on the front of the magazine is striking, with Angelina's face set against a black background. Angelina touched on the research and real-life stories she used when creating the love story set during the '90s Bosnian war. She also shared what it was like becoming a mum to her son Maddox at the age of 27. Angelina said:

  • On how she researched the story: "[I] read a lot of books about the war. I talked to a lot of people, I watched, I listened. I just wanted to tell the real story . . . I wanted to be respectful of people."
  • On using real-life stories: "I listened to my cast, most of whom lived through the war. I listened to their stories and tried to incorporate it into the work."
  • On becoming a mum at 27 to Maddox: "[I] never was a babysitter . . . I didn’t know whether to give one bottle or 30 bottles. I called my mother."
