Angelina Shoots Down "Nasty" Rumors About Her Film

  • Angelina Jolie is busy shooting her film about the Bosnian war, but has taken a moment to speak out about the plot of the script she wrote.

"It's very simple," she told a reporter. "There was a nasty rumor that it was about a relationship that started with a rape and torture - and it's not." She also said: "The film is about the experience that a lot of different people, on all different sides, have as war takes its toll… A couple that maybe would have lived a certain life, had the war not begun, end up having a very different story because of the war." And: "It's absolutely to be handled as delicately as possible." [USA Today]
