Angelina Jolie's Blood And Honey Meltdown

The star had a breakdown one day while she was in the shower while trying to get the film - which is her directorial debut - off the ground, and had to be comforted by her partner Brad Pitt. 

She told fans in a web chat: "I had a complete emotional breakdown in the shower and Brad found me crying. 
"I felt this huge responsibility and I felt very small and, who am I to take this on? I had a complete meltdown." 

Angelina - who wrote as well as directed the love story, set against the backdrop of the brutal Bosnian war - admitted she never set out to take on so much of the project and doesn't really see herself as a filmmaker. 

She added: "I didn't plan to become a director, and I still have trouble saying I'm a director. I just wanted to tell this story and I ended up by default being the director. 

"It was a pleasure but I wonder if it would be a pleasure with another cast and crew, and a subject matter that wasn't so special." 

While the war - waged between 1992 and 1995, sparked by fighting over the territories left after the break-up of the socialist republic of Yugoslavia - has become an issue very close to Angelina's heart, she admits at the time it happened, she knew little about it. 

She added: "I knew very little, like most Americans. I was 17 so I wasn't very focused. I was my own form of self-destructive, and it was a bad time. 

"I was a punk - you don't imagine you could ever be a role model."
