Washington: Angelina Jolie believes being a mother helped her to direct the Bosnian War love story ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’.

The Oscar-winning actress raises her six children Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with partner Brad Pitt.

“There’s constantly people asking you for something, so the multi-tasking of motherhood transfers very well to being a director,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling

“With all these other adults, you still feel this strange, nurturing, mothering quality for everybody,” she said.
