Los Angeles: Actress-director Angelina Jolie, who recently underwent cancer preventative surgery and had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed, feels by overcoming difficulties, one gains strength and maturity.
Angelina Jolie, 39, reflected on what she learned from the late Louis Zamperini, a World War II war survivor who was the focus of her directorial venture "Unbroken", reported Us magazine.
"I do believe in the old saying 'What does not kill you makes you stronger'. Our experiences, good and bad, make us who we are."
"Like many of the greatest human stories, it is about the capacity of regular men and women to rise above adversity," Brad Pitt's wife answered when asked about the greatest lesson she learned from Louis Zamperini's story.
