ANGELINA JOLIE IS CALLED OUT FOR HER CRUEL AUDITION PROCESS!
Tuesday, Aug 1, 2017

Last week we were talking about Angelina Jolie’s  Vanity Fair interview and her preferred place of crying, aka the shower. But now, another part of the interview is getting her into some pretty hot water outside of the shower!

Angelina described the audition process for her latest movie First They Killed My Father to Vanity Fair.

“To cast the children in the film, Jolie looked at orphanages, circuses, and slum schools, specifically seeking children who had experienced hardship. In order to find their lead, to play young Loung Ung, the casting directors set up a game, rather disturbing in its realism: they put money on the table and asked the child to think of something she needed the money for, and then to snatch it away. The director would pretend to catch the child, and the child would have to come up with a lie. “Srey Moch [the girl ultimately chosen for the part] was the only child that stared at the money for a very, very long time,” Jolie says. “When she was forced to give it back, she became overwhelmed with emotion. All these different things came flooding back. 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.”

Yikes. Well, Angelina Jolie is now defending herself to the critics who call this audition process “child cruelty.”

“I am upset that a pretend exercise in an improvisation, from an actual scene in the film, has been written about as if it was a real scenario. The point of this film is to bring attention to the horrors children face in war and to help fight to protect them. The suggestion that real money was taken from a child during an audition is false and upsetting. I would be outraged myself if this had happened. Every measure was taken to ensure the safety, comfort and well-being of the children on the film starting from the auditions through production to the present.”

Are you buying Angelina’s explanation?
