Angelina Jolie at The Breadwinner premiere for Toronto Film Festival

Angelina Jolie made a rare red carpet appearance yesterday at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of The Breadwinner.

The film is based on the memoir of the same name by Loung Ung, whom Jolie befriended in 2002 after she first became a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. Ung was 7 years old when the Cambodian genocide began.

Later that day, Angelina participated in a discussion with Rithy on stage in front of a live audience.

The Breadwinner, an animated film that she produced, is about a young Afghan girl who cuts her hair and poses as a boy to feed her family.

"The accent and everything about her was discovered when I was giving my kids baths", she said.

She said bringing her six children - three of whom were adopted from orphanages in Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam - to work on movies and humanitarian projects around the world has been a key part of their education.

She says it was nothing like that and their lifestyle "was" never a problem.

Brad and Angelina have since broken their silence to reputable news agencies and shared what they believed went wrong with their relationship, and ultimately, ended the marriage.

"First They Killed My Father" will come in theaters and stream on September 15.

Jolie added, "The film is about family".

These questions feel familiar, because they are the same questions that run through my head through any number of unimaginative real-life tragedy I've seen onscreen in the past year and since forgotten.

After keeping a relatively low profile - at least as much as is possible for one of the most famous women in the world - since her split from husband Brad Pitt a year ago, Jolie is back at the top of the marquee.

"We homeschool and I'm very very aware of their education, mostly very aware of what's lacking".

She said First They Killed My Father was inspired by wanting to learn more about the history of Cambodia, the birthplace of her son Maddox, 16, one of her six children. "This [film] is very important to him, but I think so". "Brad has great chemistry with his co-star, Ruth, but he is cautiously keeping things between them light and casual".
