Angelina Jolie, who did many dangerous scenes while filming ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’, found it difficult to suppress her own parental instincts in the movie.
The 45-year-old actress stars in Taylor Sheridan’s survival thriller as Hannah, a brusque, no-nonsense firefighter tasked with protecting a shell-shocked 12-year-old (Finn Little).
The mother-of-six, who reluctantly guides the young boy through the Montana wilderness as Hannah, found it difficult to suppress her own parental instincts in the film.
Brad Pitt’s ex-wife told EW with a laugh: “My character is not maternal by nature. Sometimes Taylor would correct me because my behavior towards a child was different from [Hannah’s] behavior towards a child. It took me a little bit to treat [Little] badly, but I got there!”
‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’ marks Angelina Jolie’s long-awaited return to action heroism after stacking her career with stunt-heavy flicks like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Wanted, and Salt.
