Jolie will appear on the October cover of Vanity Fair, dispelling rumors of a secret marriage, pregnancy and adoption. She will, however, direct In The Land Of Blood And Honey. Jolie wrote the script while being quarantined in the attic of her French home with the flu.
Most people whine, watch DVDs of Sex And The City and read trashy magazine when they have the flu, but not Jolie. “I was isolated, pacing. I don’t watch TV and I wasn’t reading anything. So I started writing. I went from the beginning to the end. I didn’t know any other way,” she told contributing editor Richard Cohen.
