Angelina Jolie slammed by fans for 'cruel' casting game

Ausiliatrice Cristiano
Luglio 30, 2017

In her July Vanity Fair profile it was suggested that during the audition process, Angelina deliberately took money from impoverished children to get an authentic reaction from them. During the audition, Jolie and her casting director made a scene where they put money on a table and asked the child to think about how they would use it. Then the director pretended to catch the child and the kid was asked to come with a lie. According to Jolie, however, this is a misleading distortion. Though Jolie wasn't present at the coup, she didn't condemn the approach either.

"The suggestion that real money was taken from a child during an audition is false and upsetting", Angelina said in a statement to the Huffington Post. Parents, guardians, partner NGOs whose job it is to care for children, and medical doctors were always on hand everyday, to ensure everyone had all they needed. "When she was asked later what the money was for, she said her grandfather had died, and they didn't have enough money for a nice funeral", Jolie said in the interview.

"The point of this film is to bring attention to the horrors children face in war, and to help fight to protect them".

Jolie's Netflix original movie, "First They Killed My Father", is inspired by Loung Ung's 2000 memoir of the Khmer Rouge genocide. More than 2 million people out of a total population of 7 million were killed during the purge, including Ung's father, mother, and two sisters. The controversial scene that many found disgusting was an actual experience of the main character and was only used for casting the potential child to play Ung. Drop a comment below.

Interview of Angelina Jolie in the September issue of Vanity Fair caused a wave of condemnation of the actress in the press and social networks, and the reason for this was not the revelation of a movie star about her divorce from brad pitt, and the story of the filming of "First they killed my father: a daughter's Memories of Cambodia" (First They Killed My Father), Director and producer Jolie.
