Angelina Jolie prays for miracle on set of ‘Unbroken,’ God delivers
Angelina Jolie is not a Christian, but she found a powerful answer to prayer recently while filming the movie “Unbroken,” thanks to her bond with WWII hero and devout Christian Louis Zamperini, reports Mark Ellis, Senior Correspondent, ASSIST News Service.
Zamperini, who passed to his reward on July 2, was the Olympic runner and POW survivor who inspired Jolie’s film based on the best-selling book Unbroken.
While directing one particular scene in New South Whales, Australia, Jolie found herself in desperate need of a miracle, according to a Christian Post story.
“She was not a person of faith and had never prayed before but she found herself at the very last scene of the movie … they needed sunlight to shoot this very important scene and there had been a storm that had been going for a while,” Zamperini’s daughter Cynthia Garris told a press conference in New York Friday.
“I don’t know what I’m going to do so I’ll do what Louie would do,” she declared to the great surprise of those around her on the set.
Then Jolie did something completely out of character. She got down on her knees and prayed for a miracle.
