Actress Angelina Jolie says she never planned to don the director's hat for a movie.
The 37-year-old had written, directed and produced 2011 release In The Land Of Blood And Honey and says it was a result of a homework she gave herself.
"I didn't set out to ever become a director or write a script. I was never intending to make a film. I often give myself homework on different things," Total Film magazine quoted Jolie as saying.
"It's good exercise to get your mind working," she added.
