    Default Living Saint Angelina Jolie "didn't eat much to support dieting actors of Unbroken"

    'She was so thin': Angelina Jolie 'didn't eat much' when she directed Unbroken movie to support dieting actors




    Director Angelina Jolie 'didn't eat much' on the set of Unbroken as she wanted to support dieting actors on set, according to Japanese actor Miyavi.
    The star, who plays a ruthless prisoner of war in the brutal film, told RadioTimes.com that the actors playing inmates had to lose a lot of weight to reflect the harsh conditions of life in captivity.
    She showed her support, by abstaining too, with Myavi telling the site: 'She came to the set every day, giving advice to the actors, and she actually didn't eat much [either].

    'She was so thin because most of the actors were not able to eat because they're prisoners in the prison camp. So she was so close to us.'
    Angelina Jolie's new film Unbroken sees lead actor Jack O'Connell, who is best known for his role in Skins, portray the incredible story of Louis Zamperini.
    The former Olympic star spent 47 days drifting in the Pacific after his plane came down during WWII and was rescued by Japanese troops and imprisoned in a war camp.

    Angelina Jolie says Unbroken can give people hope







    Jack added: 'I really respect her professionalism, her attitude towards the creation – she's so determined and passionate. It was intense on set but with her motivation and attitude we were on the same page.'
    The actor revealed that Jolie tried out all of his stunts, which included spending hours supporting the weight of a heavy wooden plank above his head.
    'She did test out all of my stunts before I had to do them. The plank – I’m not sure if that can be regarded as a stunt – but, in any case, she was under it before I turned up on set.

    Hero: Louis Zamperini (right) passed away in July this year aged 97 but lived long enough to see a final cut of the film

    'I fainted twice. It’s quite a pinnacle moment. I didn’t actually hit the deck – it was one of those faints where my head had gone but my hands were still in front of me.
    'But I had no vision, couldn’t really hear anything and then just gradually gained both of those senses back and then went back under [the plank]. And no surprise, the same problem happened.'
    Louis Zamperini passed away in July this year aged 97 but lived long enough to see a final cut of the film.
    'I heard he liked my hair and my run,' says O'Connell.
    'So as long as those two factors are in place. No acting notes but I guess no news is good news.'
    Unbroken is slated for release on December 26.

    Hmmm, the director is meant to have a critical eye. S/he is not a method actor! And she hasn't eaten much for years. If an actor said Angelina normally stuffs her face at the craft table now that would be a surprise.

    I think she's trying. I think she's like Gwinny in that she'll never REALLY get it, due to a spoiled life, but she tries to get it. For that I can't hate on her; she sees a problem and she wants to help. That said, I do think we need to try to be self-aware enough to realize when we have too little context to speak. 'Helping' blindly when we don't have enough context leads to problems like gluts of food aid in areas that use such resources to fuel their own power struggles.

    Again, like Gwen, ANgieJo doesn't have that 'I may not know enough about this to help effectively' filter. That is annoying and concerning.

    Still, no hate here. Just worry. Those with the public eye can to a lot of good, but Jenny McCarthy, if nothing else, demonstrates how a mistaken idea in the wrong hands can cause a nightmare.

    I don't believe for one second that she stopped eating to support the actors. She stopped eating years ago.

    Maybe she knew the level of thinness that would be required to maintain a relationship with Vanilla Pitt.
