Angelina Jolie Covers Vanity Fair and Discusses Her Upcoming Directing Career

Angelina Jolie’s bone structure is front and center on the cover of this month’s issue of Vanity Fair. With her hair slicked back she looks like some sort of James Cameron alien sex pot from another planet (in a good way.)

On how she came to write the screenplay for In the Land of Blood and Honey, which she will direct:

“I had the flu, I had to be quarantined from the children for two days. I was in the attic of a house in France. I was isolated, pacing. I don’t watch TV and I wasn’t reading anything. So I started writing. I went from the beginning to the end. I didn’t know any other way.”

Brad’s reaction to the script:

“He called and said, ‘You know, honey, it’s not that bad.’” “He’d come in and say what he liked or what he didn’t understand. Like any woman, I would listen to most of it and fight a few things. He’s been so supportive. But it’s hard to separate the person that loves you from the critic, so I don’t think he’s a fair judge.”

Below Jolie is pictured with her daughters Shiloh and Zaraha:

The October issue of Vanity Fair will be on newsstands on September 1st.

Do you think Angelina is ready to direct?
