An­gelina de­nies con­tro­ver­sial cast­ing for First They Killed My Fa­ther

Muscat Daily - - FEATURES -

Ac­tress An­gelina Jolie has re­futed a mag­a­zines cover story that de­scribed a con­tro­ver­sial cast­ing process for her movie First They Killed My Fa­ther. She says she is “up­set” by the mis­con­strued re­port.

Ac­cord­ing to the cover story by Van­ity Fair mag­a­zine, An­gelina and her cast­ing as­so­ciates placed money on a table and al­lowed the chil­dren au­di­tion­ing for the Cam­bo­dian film to take it. It claims that after tak­ing the money, the di­rec­tor then “caught” the chil­dren, and forced them to ex­plain why they needed the cash. Srey Moch was ul­ti­mately cho­sen for the part.

An­gelina now says that the process de­scribed in the pro­file was mis­con­strued. She says it was “a pre­tend ex­er­cise in an im­pro­vi­sa­tion, from an ac­tual scene in the film”. She also said. “the sug­ges­tion that real money was taken from a child dur­ing an au­di­tion is false abd up­set­ting”.
