Jolie never wanted to direct

Los Angeles, Jan 22 (IANS) Actress Angelina Jolie says she never planned to don the director's hat for a movie.

The 37-year-old had written, directed and produced 2011 release "In The Land Of Blood And Honey" and says it was a result of a homework she gave herself.

"I didn't set out to ever become a director or write a script. I was never intending to make a film. I often give myself homework on different things," Total Film magazine quoted Jolie as saying.

"It's good exercise to get your mind working," she added.
