Angelina Jolie says WW II hero Zamperini's 'Unbroken' story was 'life-changing'

Sydney, Oct. 13 : Angelina Jolie has revealed that after directing 'Unbroken', which is based on World War II prisoner of war survivor Louie Zamperini's story, she feels like she has changed for the better.

In a statement released by Universal Pictures, the 38-year-old actress said that it was a real privilege to bring the 96-year-old American war hero's story to screen, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The Oscar-winning star said that it was hard to make a film worthy of a great man like Zamperini, but she is deeply honoured to have had that chance.

The mum-of-six added that she will do all she can to bring Zamperini's inspiring story to life.

Zamperini's story was first documented by author Laura Hillenbrand in a book, titled 'Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption', which chronicled his survival at the sea before being imprisoned by Japanese forces.

Jolie added that she has learned so much from Hillenbrand's book and feels that Zamperini's story has made her a better person.
