Angelina Defends Her Bosnia Film

  • Angelina Jolie was in Paris last night, promoting The Tourist, but was asked about her directorial debut, a love story between a Serbian man and Bosnian woman. Angie, who wrote the screenplay, says it's not true that Bosnians are unhappy.

  • Although the tabloids have tried to claimed Angelina Jolie is pregnant or adopting several times, when asked if she's adding children to the family, Angelina said: "No, I think it's very important to give our children the individual attention they need now before expanding our family… You try to feel them, because at different times, different children need you, you must find the time to listen to them. Brad and I are also really lucky because between the two of us, we can spread the attention around." [Hindustan Times]
