Here is story of an intimate part of Jolie’s life.
Zamperini’s daughter, Cynthia Garris, recalled a particularly stormy day in New South Wales, Australia when sunlight was desperately needed to shoot an important scene.
“[Angelina] said, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do, so I’ll do what Louie would do,’” Garris said at a recent press conference. “She got on her knees, and she prayed for a miracle. . . everybody saw it. It stopped raining. The sun came out, a rainbow came out. She said, ‘Let’s get this take,’ [and] they shot the take. When she said ‘cut,’ it started to rain again.”
Jolie, said Garris, was moved by Zamperini’s faith. Garris believes it was part of God’s plan for Jolie “to find Louie and make this movie to find her way to a life that would encompass the Almighty.”
