Angelina Jolie has revealed that she felt uncomfortable asking her actors to bare all and pretend getting intimate while directing her latest movie The Land Of Blood and Honey.
The actor, who is making her directorial debut with the movie admitted that her stars Zana Marjanovic and Goran Kostic, helped her with the sex scene, because they were willing to go further for the sake of the film.
"I believe it was Zana's first love scene and Goran is a family man with a wife and kids. You kind of suddenly feel this strange thing of asking people to participate in anything like that because they''re not a real couple,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling USA Today newspaper.
“You find out how strange this is to ask anybody to get naked together and put a camera on them.
"They actually made me more comfortable. I was being a lot more prudish.
“ I would have allowed them to be more prudish and they told me it was all right and important for the story. They wanted to do what they wanted to do and they were comfortable," she said.
However, the 36-year-old was still extra vigilant and ensured that the love scenes were shot carefully, since she herself has "felt misrepresented" in previous movies where she had stripped off.
"You feel, ''Why did they hold on to that and why did they feel they needed to do that?''" she said.
She also confessed to be mesmerised by the body of her leading lady.
"She has a very beautiful body that is very organic in that European sense. She is a real woman and a beautiful woman," she added.
