Angelina Jolie and Mariane Pearl, widow of murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl recently sat down with Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive for an exclusive interview at Angelina’s home.

Mariane says a magazine interview with Angelina sparked the widow to send the actress a note suggesting a playdate to include Pearl’s son Adam and Jolie’s son Maddox.

Angie says she recalls “being really nervous, thinking, ‘She’s such an intelligent European woman — what are we going to do together?’ So we went to this serious, European, existential play — it seemed like the right thing (and it was supposed to be OK for kids). But Adam and Mad got antsy, and finally halfway through, to each other’s relief, we were both like, ‘Do you want to get out of here?'”

Pearl says she met with Brad Pitt about making ‘A Mighty Heart’ before the actor became involved with Angelina. “I wasn’t even sure I wanted to do a movie,” Pearl tells Glamour. “But when I met Brad — well, out of all the studios, he was the only one who had actually read the book!”

I loved Marianne’s book. It was very realistic and her take on things is so serene and she seems so comitted to humanitarian values in spite of her personnal tragedy. A great lady, indeed. Can’t wait for the movie.

If nobody seen the documentary or read the book, do one, the other or both because it cant help but enlighten you about all that is good bad and great about people.

This is going to be a really good movie. Daniel Pearl’s story is amazing and I’m sure Mariane’s is equally so. Ange must have been thrilled about this meeting.

Actually, they knew each other even before Brad and Angelina started dating. Zahara and Adam were/are playmates.

Phoenix, I was gonna put that tid bit up but I hope Arasto puts it up when the mag is for sale. It blew my mind how she said she felt connected and became friends with Angelina and Brad at the same time, and that happen all before Brad & Angelina knew each other!
