We LOVE this!!!
Angelina Jolie recently graced the cover of Variety to promote her film Unbroken, but we think she secretly did it just to remind the world just how lovely she is!!!
The actress also took part in an interview for the once dominant film news magazine, and she had A LOT to say about her movie and the movie's subject: Louis Zamperini!
Here's what she said about her film's main character:
"They say you should never meet your heroes, because they often disappoint you. But Louis really was one of the greatest people ever."
That's understandable, because who wouldn't look up to this guy? He was an Olympic runner… an olympic runner who was taken prisoner by Japanese forces during World War II.
The daughter of Zemperini also revealed a heartbreaking/heartwarming story about the night her father died and how Angelina and Brad Pitt were so there for her during that difficult time!
Cynthia Garris said:
"The night our father passed away, she and Brad [Pitt] came to our home and took such beautiful care of us. They cried with us, they held us, they made a soft place for us to fall. At one point I told her, ‘My father was really in love with you.' And she said, ‘I was in love with him!'"

Angelina Jolie also revealed they were able to show him a rough cut of the film before he passed away in July. We're so happy that happened! She said:
"We were able to show him his life just in time to let him see all that he had accomplished and reflect on all the people he's loved and was about to reunite with in heaven. It's not about ego, he didn't want to be famous. He wanted to make sure his message was clear. It's why he did speaking engagements, it's why he did his book. It's why he tried to get a movie made for 57 years. Everybody who reads this book and knows his life feels very connected to this man."
We can't wait to see it!
Oh, and if you're wondering: her cover of Variety also features her stars, Jack O'Connell and Miyavi.
It's definitely a keeper if you snag a copy!
