While making In the Land of Blood and Honey, Angelina Jolie found herself in the land of tears.

As she fielded questions from fans last night during a live online chat about her directorial debut, the Oscar winner admitted that the project definitely took its toll during production.

"I had a complete emotional breakdown in the shower and Brad [Pitt] found me crying," revealed Jolie. "I felt this huge responsibility and I felt very small. I thought, 'Who am I to take this on?'...I had a complete meltdown."

The actress says such trepidation stemmed from the fact that she "didn't plan to become a director" when she wrote the movie's screenplay.

"I still have trouble saying I'm a director," she admitted. "I just wanted to tell this story and I ended up, by default, being the director."

Well, as far as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is concerned, Jolie wound up doing a pretty good job behind the camera. In the Land of Blood and Honey has been nominated for a Golden Globe in the Best Foreign Language Film category. We'll find out Sunday if it takes home the gold.
