The Oscar winner Angelina Jolie makes her directorial debut with feature film ~ In the Land of Blood and Honey ~ and talks to Vanity Fair‘s Rich Cohen about the passion project. Enjoy some tidbits from the October 2011 issue ~

How directing ~ In the Land of Blood and Honey ~ will effect her ~ Brad thinks I’m going to be a nightmare [Jolie jokes]. I had such a good experience he thinks I’m going to be impatient with directors, which I already am. I get impatient with people working on a film that have their head in their hands like it’s the most complicated thing in the world.

On writing and directing ~ I’ve never felt more exposed. My whole career, I’ve hidden behind other people’s words. Now it’s me talking. You feel ridiculous when you get something wrong.

On how she came to write the script ~ 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. She says she then let Brad take the script to read on a trip ~ He called and said, ‘You know, honey, it’s not that bad.

On Brad Pitt’s supportive role ~ 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. But she goes on to say that ~ people will judge for themselves. I think if you make a good movie people walk away arguing.

The October 2011 Issue hits newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on Thursday, September 01, and drops everywhere else and iPads on Thursday, September 06.
