‘I felt a little beaten up in my own life, as we all do at times, and I felt like I wasn’t holding myself together and I felt a little broken and the idea of just getting through the fire – just getting through the damn fire,’ the actress revealed.  

‘Whatever it takes, with everything coming at you, get through it, so when you feel that way as a person and you have the great opportunity to have a piece of art that you can manifest that experience and that growth through a character,’ she said.

‘Quite literally, we go through that fire and it’s hot and it’s hard…when we got to the other end it did really feel like we’d done something,’ she added.

Still she added that her character is still quite different from her, in many other ways, including views on family.

‘My character doesn’t have children, doesn’t like children or isn’t really comfortable with children,’ she said, adding she was always ‘hanging out’ with her young co-star Finn on the weekends, adding she, ‘really cared for Finn as soon as I met him.’

She added, ‘Part of it was how not to parent school of parenting, but Finn is also so tough, he’s a real extremely talented actor.’

Little, 14, also added, ‘I’ll admit, in the audition when I met you, I was just freaking out. I was so nervous.’

He added he was flown from Australia to Los Angeles, adding, ‘so much was riding on this’ and he was, ‘about to break down.’

Jolie added that when they would film these scenes and they would get through the fire, there was a real sense of accomplishment between them both.

‘It was hard at times but I think it definitely paid off,’ Little added, while Angelina also spoke about her Marvel movie Eternals.

Jolie plays Thena in the Marvel Studios superhero adventure, and when asked if it was a movie for the whole family, she hoped her kids could get over her costume.

‘I hope so, as long as my kids get over the shock of me in a gold suit,’ Jolie joked.
