Van­ity Fair stands by An­gelina Jolie cover story

Cape Breton Post - - Arts/Entertainment -

Van­ity Fair is stand­ing by its de­scrip­tion of the cast­ing process used for An­gelina Jolie’s forth­com­ing Net­flix film, “First They Killed My Fa­ther.” The mag­a­zine says in a state­ment Thurs­day that it has re­viewed tran­scripts and au­dio record­ings from interviews with Jolie that were used to pro­duce its Septem­ber cover story about the ac­tress. The ar­ti­cle de­scribed a “game’’ used to find the child star of Jolie’s film about the Kh­mer Rouge regime in Cam­bo­dia. It said cast­ing di­rec­tors pre­sented money to im­pov­er­ished chil­dren only to take it away from them as an act­ing ex­er­cise.

Jolie said last week that the sug­ges­tion that real money was taken from chil­dren dur­ing the au­di­tions is “false and up­set­ting.” Van­ity Fair said Jolie’s at­tor­ney asked the mag­a­zine to re­move the orig­i­nal para­graph from its story.
