"As an American actor, I don't have the depth of emotion and understanding and the commitment to art and the ability that people have from this region of the world. They're well beyond me when it comes to being an artist." Angelina Jolie was as humble as you can imagine a world-famous actress to be from the moment she sat down at the press conference for In The Land Of Blood And Honey, her directorial debut that she swears she never intended to make. A good amount of the press conference focused on her cast, all from the Serbia/Bosnia region and all with distinct memories of the bloody civil war that serves as the backdrop for In The Land of Blood and Honey, which Jolie describes as "a love story that could have been if not for war."

Clive Owen is a respected actor, who starred in a number of acclaimed theater productions in the U.K. before going on to become a major TV star, thanks to Stephen Poliakoff's "Close My Eyes" and the popular TV series "Chancer."

On the surface, In the Land of Blood and Honey seems like a vanity project of sorts for its maker, Angelina Jolie. After all, the actress/humanitarian/super-mom is one of the few figures in Hollywood who could strive to make a Bosnian War-set Romeo and Juliet with subtitles and actually get it done. Yet the finished project suggests that we might have found a new director to watch. Jolie brings a sincere, serious vision to this ambitious enterprise. Crafted with a veteran’s skill, the film ably traverses a range of emotions, from the intimate warmth of bedside scenes to the cold, calculated brutality of war at its most horrific. Shooting mostly in Hungary but working with an all-Bosnian cast, Jolie brings alive the terrible, destructive ethnic conflict that erupted between 1992 and 1995, after the former Yugoslavia split apart. Her narrative imparts the conflict’s heartaches through its focus on the forbidden, strife-ridden »

Pitt and Angelina Jolie edged out Aniston and her actor/writer beau Justin Theroux by just one per cent in the annual Zillow survey, which determines which stars Americans would most like to live next door to.
Newly single Jennifer Lopez and music heavyweights Jay-z and Beyonce also made the list, while the undesirables clearly not welcome on the block were led by Charlie Sheen (21 per cent), Lindsay Lohan (14 per cent) and reality TV star Kim Kardashian (13 per cent). »
Part of Tim Tebow's appeal is that he's a polite, nice, guy-next-door type of dude -- and apparently, America has taken that quite literally as the Denver Broncos quarterback was recently voted the celebrity Americans most want as their next-door neighbor.
Real estate research company Zillow polled U.S. residents for the fifth year in a row, and found that Tebow is the most desirable celebrity neighbor, with 14 percent of males and 7 percent of females voting for the Qb. Following the 24-year-old were celebrity couples Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt with 10 percent of the vote and Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux with 9 percent.
However, there's one major thing to note -- most people surveyed would rather not have a star living next door at all. A whopping 42 percent of people would prefer an average joe next-door neighbor.
The actress has stepped behind the camera to make her directorial debut for the movie, which she wrote about a romance between a Serbian soldier and a Bosnian woman.
And Jolie, who is a keen philanthropist, has vowed to hand over some of the profits from the soundtrack to the Sos Children's Villages program in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The charity helps youths in the region who are still suffering from the impact of the Balkans war in the 1990s.
Jolie says, "We are happy that a portion of the proceeds from the film's soundtrack will support Sos Children's Villages in Bosnia and Herzegovina to provide stable, family-based homes to children, regardless of religion, ethnicity or gender, who do not have their own families to care for them." »
