Angelina Jolie Wrote A Movie About Afghanistan

One depressing world crisis down, one thousand more to go…

Angelina Jolie has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her directorial debut with In The Land of Blood And Honey, and she doesn’t appear to be taking off her director’s hat any time soon.

Jolie recently revealed she’s half-written a script about Afghanistan, but for now, she’s too shy to show it to anyone.

Angelina told the Los Angeles Times, "I don't even think it's good. Maybe I'll dig it out, but I don't have the confidence yet to start even thinking in that way."

And you can forget about her getting behind the camera for a rom-com, action or comedy.

"I love political subject matter, international work, where I learn about other countries and foreign affairs,” Jolie continued. “I don't know if I would be interested in directing something where I wasn't forced to get a huge education,"

Angelina might be talking about her directing career, but she’s still taking things slow.

"I still am shy about the idea of whether I would ever do this again."

So how did Angelina feel about shining the spotlight on someone else as a director?

“I loved not acting. I loved it," Jolie confessed. "When you get to shine the spotlight on someone who's doing the job 10 times better than you can imagine doing it yourself, it's great. It's like 'OK, I'm not needed here'."

Jolie’s In The Land of Blood and Honey opens in limited theaters in the U.S. today.
