    Angelina Jolie röportaj ingilizce

    We caught up with the peerlessly glamorous Angelina Jolie while she was in London to talk about her new movie Changeling. Directed by Clint Eastwood and based on true events, Jolie has already been tipped for an Oscar for her moving performance of a mother whose missing son is returned by the police only to realise that the child is not hers. In an emotional interview, Angelina told us how she based her performance on her recently deceased mother and what it was like working with Clint.

    LOVEFiLM: It was a very harrowing film to watch. Does it follow that it was a very difficult film to make?

    Angelina Jolie: Yeah, it was. It was a very harrowing film for all of us. And I think at the same time, because it was a true story, because this woman went through so much, it was also very inspiring.

    LF: Was their one scene in particular that was very difficult for you to do?

    AJ: I think the most difficult scene for me was just making the phone call in the beginning. I think that’s just such a serious fear, especially for any parent. You just don’t want to physically do it. You just don’t want to go up to a phone, pick it up and report a missing child.

    LF: As a mother, was it a hard for you to get your head around what happens to your character in the film?

    AJ: Yeah, it was very hard. When I first read this script, I couldn’t put it down, but I said “No.” I didn’t want to have any thing to do with this project because it was too upsetting. But then I couldn’t stop talking about her. I found myself sitting with people and wanting them to know about this extraordinary woman.

    But as a mom it was horrible. I had my kids with me as much as possible, at lunch and after a day at work I would just run home and I would be silly. It was so emotional that I just found my self being very, very goofy and silly at home, and so happy that I knew where the kids were and that they were OK.

    LF: Did you get frustrated by your characters passivity?

    AJ: It was the hardest thing. Usually I can find out where I relate and I can improvise and react as I would naturally react. But women at that time, it wasn’t just that she trusted in the police, it’s that she wouldn’t have gotten anywhere if she didn’t try to keep her place, you know? She had to walk a very, very fine line. And when she did speak up they locked her in an institution. So she had this real struggle to try to behave with these very corrupt people. .She was a single mother in 1928 which is a very difficult place to come from. It didn’t command any respect at that time.

    I couldn’t relate to it, but my mom… It wasn’t 1928, but there was something about her… Her name was Marcheline and we called her “Marshmallow” as a joke, because she was just the softest, most gentle woman in the world. She was really, really sweet and she would never get angry. She couldn’t swear to save her life, but when it came to her kids she was really, really fierce. And so this is very much her. In that she was the woman I related to who had that elegance and strength through just knowing what was right.

    LF: How does Clint’s directorial style differ from other directors you’ve worked with?

    AJ: He’s famous for shooting one or two takes, which does sound terrifying to an actor, but because of that you know he’s not going to drain you emotionally. He’ll be very prepared for [from?] the moment you walk through the door so you have to bring your all, but if you bring your all, he will capture it on film. So it does allow for you to really push yourself. And also because he does do just one take, everything’s very fresh. As actors we tend to over think things and analyse ourselves and because you don’t have time for that, it keeps it very in the moment and very real.

    LF: There’s been a lot of speculation about the Oscar nominations the film might get. How important would it be for you to get an Oscar nomination? I heard that you lost your first Oscar…

    AJ: I did not! I didn’t actually lose it. I gave it to my mom and she was one of those people that didn’t put things up that she thought were too special, so I don’t know where she put it and she passed away. We’ve not gone through all her stuff yet, but nobody knows where it is at the moment!

    Anything that acknowledges a film that you are proud of and that you worked hard on means a great deal, but at the same time if nothing’s ever acknowledged, then you’re just as proud and you work just as hard.

    LF: Have you ever roller-skated before Changeling?

    AJ: People keep asking me that! I’m like, “Did I really roller-skate that bad?”!
