Before Angelina Jolie acted as Mariane Pearl in "A Mighty Heart", she already knew Mariane Pearl. Pearl's son Adam and Jolie's Maddox were playmates long before. Thus, Angelina had a mix feelings, which comprise both honored and terrified when she was chosen by Pearl to act in that movie.

Angelina said "It was the one film I've done where I'd lost sleep and didn't think I could do it."

For her preparation in that role, she reviewed hours of Mariane Pearl's videotaped interviews and radio broadcasts. She learn her body language and idiosyncratic accent.

Angelina has these thoughts "There are certain things I never asked her.I never asked her -- and I would never ask her -- about the tape [of Daniel's beheading]. I never have asked her to describe how she responded. I just tried to understand what the loss was and then tried to interpret it from what I understood that was."

I really respect how seriously Angelina took the part. I think AMH was a great movie.
