Angelina Jolie's emotions were running high this week at the Bosnian premiere of her directorial debut, "In the Land of Blood and Honey."
The 36-year-old star was quite composed while walking the premiere's red carpet with partner Brad Pitt, but when she took the stage in front of the audience, the actress-turned-writer/director became choked up.
"It means so much to all of us, it means so much to me and I can't tell you how much it means to be here with all of you and to share this film and that you're receiving it so warmly means the world to me," an emotional Angelina told the crowd at the screening in Sarajevo as tears welled up in her eyes.
Adding, "I care so deeply for all of you in this country."
The audience responded enthusiastically to Angelina and the drama/romance movie set in the war-torn nation, giving the film a standing ovation.
Earlier in the week, Angelina and Brad were in Berlin for the Cinema for Peace Gala, during the Berlin International Film Festival.
