Angelina Jolie didn't want to direct

Angelina Jolie never intended to be a movie director.

The Oscar-winning actress - who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt - wrote and directed 'In The Land of Blood And Honey', a love story set during the Bosnian war and says the project stemmed from giving herself ''homework'' to learn more about the history.

She told Total Film magazine: ''I didn't set out to ever become a director or write a script. I was never intending to make a film. I often give myself homework on different things; it's good exercise to get your mind working.''

Angelina - who also works as a UN special envoy - then began writing the film to help raise awareness of the situation.

She added: ''I've been travelling for over 10 years to these conflict and post-conflict zones, and thinking about what happens to people when they live inside these situations, and how their humanity is just stripped apart.

''I spent so much of the time bringing people back - like they're in the refugee camp and returning them to the place where they faced war.

''So I wanted to have a meditation on what this is and how people who are neighbours can turn against each other.''

'In The Land Of Blood And Honey' will open in the UK in 2013.
