Angelina Jolie's New Inspiration Was Living Right Under Her Nose

Before heading off to Lebanon to visit with Syrian refugees, Angelina Jolie sat down for an interview with Today to talk about the making of her new movie Unbroken. Angie did the interview with Louis Zamperini, the Olympic distance runner and WWII pilot who was the inspiration for the project. As it turns out, the two actually live in the same LA neighborhood, and Louis could see Angie's roof from his patio. "I imagine that for the last 10-something years, he has been sitting there having a coffee in the morning and wondering who's going to make this movie," Angelina said. "And I've been sitting in my room laying there thinking, 'What am I supposed to be doing with my life? I wanna do something important. I need some help. I need some guidance. Where is it?' And it was right outside my window." It's no surprise that Angie and Louis have now become close friends, with the actress-turned-director calling him her new love and he referring to her as "honey" and "my gal." The film is Angelina's third directorial effort, having directed the 2007 documentary A Place in Time and the 2011 drama In the Land of Blood and Honey. While the other projects won critical acclaim, Unbroken is shaping up to be possibly her biggest project, as it is slated for the highly desirable Christmas Day release date this year. Watch the full interview with Angie and Louis above.
