Angelina Jolie appeared on Tuesday’s “Good Morning America,” where she discussed her new film, First They Killed My Father, what Cambodia means to her, and her impending divorce from Brad Pitt. Watch the full “GMA” interview below.

Jolie spoke to George Stephanopoulos in a one-on-one interview on the morning show about her love for Cambodia, and how it inspired her to create a film about its troubled past. “This country means a great deal to me, this country has been through so much. This war affected every single individual here, and I wanted to understand myself,” Jolie noted. “I don’t know much of [son Maddox’s] birth parents, but I believe they would have gone through this war. I wanted to understand his culture in a deeper way, and bring this story to this country in their language. I wanted to tell the story of Luong Ung, who’s a dear friend of mine.”

Jolie went on to reveal how she felt when she first screened the film in front of the Cambodian royal family, and how her son Maddox was heavily involved in creating the movie. “I was very, very nervous. It’s an honor to be allowed to come into a country which is not your own country, and to tell its history,” she said. “I talked to Maddox about this film, and about doing it. And it was him, in the final hour who said he was ready. He wanted to understand more, and he wanted me to make it.”

Jolie also discussed her highly publicized divorce from Pitt, and spoke about how her family is coping with the shocking split. “We are focusing on the health of our family. So we will be stronger when we come out of this because that’s what we’re determined to do as a family.” When Stephanopoulos asked the actress if Pitt was still a part of the family, Jolie said, “Of course. Of course, we will always be a family. Always.”

As Gossip Cop reported, Jolie opened up about her divorce from Pitt for the first time in a recent interview with BBC World News. The actress admitted the split had been “difficult,” but also similarly noted how she hopes that she, Pitt and their six children will be a “stronger family for it” in the future.
