Spilling beans about her experience of working in the 1999 film, Jolie said that it was “less extreme” but nearly drove her “insane.”
“Sometimes with the extreme ones, you’re a character so you are free; this one was like: Be yourself, let those tears fall, be simple, and be still. You can’t hide. Sometimes it can be harder. It was really lonely and I went a bit nuts,” she added while mentioning that leading a film and being responsible for it made her go through a variety of emotions.
‘It was great seducing someone with your mind’: Jolie
While the opportunity of working with Denzel Washington is no doubt an exciting offer for any actor, for Angelina Jolie, it was more than thrilling. Talking about her experience working with the actor, she mentioned having the “best sex” with Washington.
“Of course, it’s more than that. What’s fascinating are the journeys these two characters undertake, and the deep relationship that evolves between them. The best sex I ever had was in this movie. It was great seducing someone with your mind, a huge turn-on,” she said
The remarks made during the promotional tour of the 1999 film did raise a lot of eyebrows among fans.
