Keen to make films about subjects many would avoid, the film star and activist is as likely to be found discussing the Khmer Rouge, subject of her new film, as featuring in glamour magazines
The meeting with Angelina Jolie was going so well. The Vanity Fair reporter Evgenia Peretz was welcomed into the “11,000 square foot beaux arts mansion” in Los Feliz, which the 42-year-old actress and her six children acquired after her divorce last year from Brad Pitt.
Peretz marvelled at the “rolling lawns, lush trees”, the kitchen “worthy of a Nancy Meyers movie”, the “charming grey library with a library ladder”. When the interview hit the stands in July, however, it prompted an outcry from Team Jolie and controversy over comments she made about the casting process behind her latest film.
