Cambodia child auditions

Angelina Jolie denies 'cruel' Cambodia child auditions

The actress and UN special envoy recruited local children to star in her film about Cambodia's Khmer Rouge, First They Killed My Father.

She spoke to Vanity Fair about the filmĀ and explained how they used a casting game which involved giving money to poor children then taking it away.

The interview caused outrage, with many accusing Jolie of being "exploitative".

In it, Jolie explains how the directors looked through slums and orphanages to find actors for the film, and were "specifically seeking children who had experienced hardship".
