Angelina was on Good Morning America on February 21st promoting “First They Killed My Father” and I can unfortunately not watch this because I don’t live in the US. You can watch the interview here and for us others we will ahve to wait for someone to hopefully upload it to YouTube 🙂

Some quotes from the interview:

Angelina Jolie says she still believes Brad Pitt is a wonderful father and their family “will be stronger” following their divorce.

The actress spoke on US television about her high-profile split from Pitt, from whom she filed for divorce in September after two years of marriage.

She told Good Morning America: “We are focusing on the health of our family. And so we will be (healthier).

‘We will be stronger when we come out of this, because that’s what we’re determined to do as a family.”

Asked if she still believed Pitt was a “wonderful father”, as she had once described him, she replied: “Of course. We will always be a family.

“You start with crickets and a beer, and you then you kind of move up to tarantulas,” Angelina Jolie casually told BBC News during a recent appearance in Cambodia. While parts of the interview have already made the rounds, specifically Jolie’s quotes about her divorce from Brad Pitt, the newly released segment shows the actress, director, and humanitarian enjoying a unique activity with her children.

For the BBC interview, Jolie and twins Knox and Vivienne removed the fangs from tarantulas and fried them up with scorpions and other bugs to make a meal. “How do you flip a scorpion?” Jolie joked.

Knox seemed less than enthused about the dish. “It’s like dry chips; like flavorless chips,” he remarked after having some.

In the video I posted yesterday Angelina mentions the divorce and she handles it with grace as usual, even though you can hear that it’s obviously a sensitive subject. This clip above is just a short one and if you want to view the first one go to the previous post on this site.

This news is all over the internet today and that’s why I bring it up as well. I hope the whole family are ok and they will get to handle this privately in the future, if that is their wish.

“I don’t want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and…and we are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it.”

First appearance with Angie for a long time! She attended the premiere and press conference today February 18, for her film First They Killed My Father in Siem Reap, Cambodia. She was there with her kids and they all looked so happy!

Angelina Jolie is back in the spotlight.

The actress stepped out for a press conference ahead of the Cambodia premiere of her new film First They Killed My Father on Saturday in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

The film will be presented in the ancient Angkor Wat temple complex. Cambodia’s King Norodom Sihamoni, Queen Mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk and senior government officials are expected to attend.

This marks the 41-year-old Oscar winner’s first public appearance since she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September 2016. She visited a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan on Sept. 9, where she urged United Nations leaders to find an end to the Syrian conflict.

During the press conference for the film, Jolie said she thinks of Cambodia “like a second home,” adding, “Maddox is happy to be back in his country.”

First They Killed My Father is based on the autobiography of the same name by Cambodian human-rights activist Loung Ung, a friend of Jolie’s. The memoir tells the true story of the devastation inflicted on Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge communist party in the 1970s.

“I read Loung’s book many years ago,” Jolie said. “It helped to open my eyes to what was going on the world.”

She added, “I wanted to tell the story to through the eyes of the child’s point of view, the love of a family, to show the beauty of the country and understand what Maddox’s parents may have gone through.”

More than two million people, out of a total population of seven million, were killed during the purge, including Ung’s father, mother and two sisters. “The heart of it is Loung’s story, it’s the story of a war through the eyes of a child, but it is also the story of a country,” Jolie said in a promotional clip for the film.

In order to create an accurate portrait of the war, Jolie insisted on using only Cambodian actors, and the language spoken throughout is their native Khmer. The actors themselves are the survivors and children of the survivors of the genocide. Jolie, Ung and the producers hoped the experience of making the film would be cathartic for those who participated.

Jolie fell in love with Cambodia after filming Tomb Raider in 2000. Not long after she was finished with production, she returned to the country as a volunteer for the U.N. refugee agency, UNHCR, for which she is now a special envoy. In 2002, Jolie adopted her first child, Maddox, from a Battambang orphanage.

And it was Maddox who, after years of putting it off, convinced Jolie and Ung to make the film. “He was the one who just called it and said he was ready and that he wanted to work on it, which he did. He read the script, helped with notes, and was in the production meetings,” Jolie recently told The Guardian.

Jolie’s second-oldest son, Pax, was also involved in the production. In 2015, Jolie told People, “Pax is doing a lot of the stills,” adding, “The whole movie is from a child’s point of view.”

During the presser, Jolie made it a point to emphasize that the public does not hear the stories of all of the girls and boys who are going through the same thing today as Loung Ung did in the 1970s, noting, “Her story is universal.”

“I’m deeply honored to have had the chance to work on the film,” Jolie said. “I hope it reminds everyone that there are little Loungs all around the world today.”

First They Killed My Father will be released globally via Netflix later this year.

Read a Q&A with Anthony Dod Mantle, the director of photography First They Killed My Father at Phnompenh Post. He mentions working with Angelina and other details about working on the project.

Angelina Jolie with Rithy Panh

Q: You’ve worked on several major films before. How was this experience different?
A: When you get dropped out of an airplane in the middle of a rice paddy in Cambodia three days before shooting commences – yes, it was different. I’m used to doing bigger films, and I consider this one in a way a “big-small film” or a “small-big film”. I began shooting the film on the first day with three or four hundred background actors on day one, [while] getting to know Angelina, who I didn’t know, and getting to know a whole crew who I didn’t know. I found her [to be] very much a sister, [and] I felt artistically very close to her.

Angelina Jolie in Turkish TV Series

New project for Angelina it seems, will be interesting to get more details about the series so we get to know more about it.

Shooting for the trailer of a new Turkish series called “Hayat Köprüsü” (Bridge of Life), which will feature international stars like actress Angelina Jolie and football player Cristiano Ronaldo, wrapped up in Turkey’s southern Gaziantep province.

The series is planned to last for three seasons, and will tell the story of a Syrian family seeking refuge in Turkey, after fleeing their war-torn country.

Director Eyüp Dirlik said that the project was launched with the slogan “Either you stay there and die, or you come here and live”. Dirlik also gave information about the casting, stating that international celebrities would visit Turkey’s Gaziantep to support the project.

The director announced that his crew was in contact with some international relief agencies, adding that Ronaldo and Jolie were among the big celebrities who wanted to contribute to the project.

The new series is expected to become an international project after the trailer reaches wide audiences and particularly considering the production’s existing contacts with countries across the Middle East.

Gaziantep Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Fatma Şahin said that the series’ plot was gripping, as it would include love, drama, family ties and the struggle for life.

Leading actress Perihan Savaş announced that the actual filming of the series would start this March in Gaziantep.

Expressing her excitement about the new project, Savaş stated that the series could also be seen as a lesson for humanity, telling the lives of Syrian refugees in Gaziantep and the city’s hospitality.

Seems like Angelina will attend the premiere in Cambodia, I wish her all the luck with her premiere! I’m very excited to see a new movie directed by Angelina so I’m looking forward to watching it.

Cambodia’s culture-loving King Norodom Sihamoni — will preside over the premiere Saturday of Angelina Jolie’s film based on a memoir from a Khmer Rouge survivor.

Queen Mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk and senior government officials also will attend the showing of First They Killed My Father at the centuries-old Angkor Wat temple complex, a spokesman for the government agency that oversees the archaeological site said Tuesday.

Jolie, who directed the Khmer-language film on location in 2015-16, is also scheduled to attend. It was not clear if her Cambodia-born son Maddox, who helped on the film, also will be there.

Two free public screens are planned at the site near Siem Reap in northwestern Cambodia.

The film is based on Loung Ung’s account of her survival as a child under the 1975-79 communist Khmer Rouge regime, believed to be responsible for the deaths of 1.7 million Cambodians from starvation, disease and execution.

Jolie has had an affinity for Cambodia since she began goodwill work for the U.N.’s refugee agency in 2001, and she adopted Maddox, 15, from the southeast Asian country. She also has established a foundation to promote social development in rural Cambodia.
