Angelina Jolie did an interview with VanityFair, and the magazine highlighted a process that she used to cast the lead child in her recent movie First They Killed My Father. She has since been criticized for the process by many readers, many claiming the process was abusive. Here's how it was described in Vanity Fair:
"To cast the children in the film, Jolie looked at orphanages, circuses and slum schools, specifically seeking children who had experienced hardship. 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. The director would pretend to catch the child, and the child would have to come up with a lie."
"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. 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."MORE HERE, USA Today
