Angelina Jolie refutes claims about controversial child auditions in Cambodia

Angelina Jolie is speaking out against a “false and upsetting” rumor from the set of her new film.

This past week, Vanity Fair published a story that claimed impoverished children were used in auditions for Jolie’s new film, “First They Killed My Father,” in order to find a young version of Loung Ung from her memoir, on which the film is based, about surviving the Khmer Rouge killings in Cambodia.

“In order to find their lead, to play young Loung Ung, the casting directors set up a game, rather disturbing in its realism: they put money on the table and asked the child to think of something she needed the money for, and then to snatch it away,” Vanity Fair wrote, according to People. “The director would pretend to catch the child, and the child would have to come up with a lie.”

Jolie has since responded to the rumors in a statement to Huffington Post.

“I am upset that a pretend exercise in an improvisation, from an actual scene in the film, has been written about as if it was a real scenario,” Jolie said. “The suggestion that real money was taken from a child during an audition is false and upsetting. I would be outraged myself if this had happened.”

She added that “every measure was taken to ensure the safety, comfort and well-being of the children on the film starting from the auditions through production to the present.”

A source close to the film claims that the children were aware they were improvising the scene, and no real money was used in the auditions.

Sony Pictures on Thursday morning released a new trailer for “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.”

The film follows the adventures of four high school students who are sucked into the tropical world of Jumanji after they find an old video game console while cleaning out their school’s basement.

When they come out in the game, the four find themselves trapped in the bodies of their avatars, played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hard, Jack Black and Karen Gillan.

“What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – Jumanji plays you,” Columbia pictures said in a film synopsis. “They’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, or they’ll be stuck in the game forever.”

It’s a twist on the 1995 film “Jumanji,” in which the world that is the film’s namesake spills onto the quiet streets of a New Hampshire town, causing havoc after a bored brother and sister find a board game called “Jumanji” in the attic of their new home.

“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” will hit theaters on Dec. 20.

D-Day veteran Alfred Barlow landed on Sword Beach on June 6, 1944. Barlow, who was a corporal when Allied forces attacked the French coast, attended this year’s Memorial in Normandy, the Manchester Evening News reported.

However, Barlow lost his medals at the service station near Walsall during his return to his home in Stockport on June 8.

Barlow released images of the lost medals -- the 1939-1945 Star, the France and Germany Star, the 1939-1945 War Medal and the Palestine Medal -- through the Blind Veterans UK charity.

Grant tweeted his support, including a contact number and said that anonymity would be guaranteed, the Evening News reported.

Barlow said the incident was “very distressing.”

“These medals are worth very little to sell but to me they are priceless,” he told the Evening News. “I had intended to pass all of my medals on to my grandson, which makes it even more upsetting.”

Barlow turns 96 on Sunday and said the medals’ return would be a great birthday gift, Fox News reported.

Depp was taking questions at the Cinemageddon at the Glastonbury Festival after introducing his 2004 film “The Libertine.” Deciding to discuss American politics, Depp brought up the subject of President Donald Trump.

“Can we bring Trump here?” he asked.

The crowd booed and yelled “No,” CNN reported.

“I’m not insinuating anything -- by the way, this will be in the press and it will horrible,” Depp said. “But when was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

Responding to loud cheer, Depp then said, “I want to clarify. I’m not an actor. I lie for a living.”

President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by Booth, an actor, in April 1865.
