We''re not alone in the world: Angelina Jolie

Los Angeles: Actress-director Angelina Jolie says she embraced her spirituality after growing close to Louis Zamperini, the subject of her film "Unbroken" and has come to the conclusion "we`re not alone in the world."

The 39-year-old began to embrace her spiritual side after getting to know Zamperini, the American prisoner of war survivor and Olympian who is the subject of her film "Unbroken" , and becoming inspired by his journey through life, reports people.com.

When asked on what she had learned from Zamperini, she said: "When there is an obstacle, you have to rise to the challenge, not be overwhelmed by it. And we`re not alone in the world."

Jolie, who raises six children with her husband Brad Pitt, feels that while she`s certain there`s something "greater" than human life, she`s unsure what to actually call it.

"I don`t know if there`s a name for that - religion or faith - just that there`s something greater than all of us, and it`s uniting and beautiful."

She became close friends with Zamperini, who is portrayed by actor Jack O`Connell in the movie, while directing the film and was heartbroken when he passed away aged 97 earlier this year.

"It is a loss impossible to describe. We are all so grateful for how enriched our lives are for having known him. We will miss him terribly," she said in a statement at the time of his death.
