The 39-year-old, who is busy promoting her second directorial film "Unbroken", has said that the message within it is dedicated to her love for her husband and their sons, reports

Speaking about how making an epic war film is unusual for a woman, she told The Sunday Times newspaper: "I don't feel it's a woman's touch as much as it's how a woman loves and respects men.

"And I look at this, and I see my son, and Brad, and it's me paying respect to the men I love, showing them I know them intimately and I know them emotionally.

"And they're not just cool to me when they're being tough. They're cool when they're able to be vulnerable too."

The "Salt" actress says she wants her children -- Shiloh, Vivienne, Maddox, Pax, Zahara and Knox -- to watch the film and learn from it.

"I wanted to show them something that's hard to watch in places, but in the end - without beating you over the head - you do, I hope, feel a bit more like, 'Well, maybe I can step up and be a better person, too'," she added.
