In an interview with Screen Rant, Marvel Studios VP of Production & Development Nate Moore elaborated on the struggles that Angelina's character faces in the film.

He said, 'She has a tragic story in our film in that she comes down with something called Mahd Wy'ry. If you guys are fans of comics Mahd Wy'ry is something that can beset an Eternal.

'It's a version of dementia. Because of the amount of memories they have, they become unstuck in their own mind, so she starts to forget exactly when she is, so through the course of the movie, Gilgamesh (Don Lee) becomes her protector.

'And when we find them in the modern day, they're living off the grid in a cabin in Australia because she's too dangerous to have around humans, so it's a fun arc for Angelina to play.'

Meanwhile, the film's director Chloe Zhao told People, 'Angie is the reason why Thena exists. It was really important for Angie to bring femininity to Thena's character.

'She talked a lot about creating a woman who was graceful, feminine and strong at the same time. A woman strong enough not to be afraid to lean on the shoulder of a strong man.'

Angelina told People that being asked to portray a superhero at the age of 45 'actually meant a great deal to me. I didn't think I'd pick up a weapon again. I didn't think I'd be in fight scenes to this extent again. And I certainly never thought I'd be in Marvel universe as a great fighter.'

  Artful Dodger! Angelina Jolie Avoids Answering Question About The Weeknd Artful Dodger! Angelina Jolie Avoids Answering Question About The WeekndDuring a virtual press junket for her new role in Marvel Studio’s Eternals on Monday, October 25, Jolie, 46, was asked about her six kids and how excited they are about the cool parts of her life — including her relationship with the 31-year-old famous singer (born Abel Tesfaye).

The Salt star said, 'I'm very interested in the other side of her that is struggling.'

Chloe said, 'It was so fortunate that Angie came in and was very excited to work the way I've been working — to find the human part in the actor and actresses and what they really go through in their personal life and create a space for them to express that.

'And Angie has lived a life. And for her to be willing to be vulnerable enough to allow the camera into her inner struggle and to give that to the character of Thena so the audiences can relate to her is a brave and giving thing for an actor to do.'

The Oscar winner said that Angelina's past experience as a director enabled her to bring a greater understanding to the set.

'When you shoot a film like this, you're asking 700 people to wait from 12 o'clock to 5:30 p.m. so you can get your scene with two takes,' she said. 'You require an understanding from the cast.

'And someone like Angie, who's been a director and a producer, who traveled far into the middle of nowhere to make her films, she looked around and she said, "Oh yeah, we wait. I know what she's doing." She understands the bigger picture. That was crucial on this film.'

'I'm not a perfect parent by any means,' the Maleficent star told People. 'Every day I feel like I'm more aware of everything I don't do right.'

Despite doubting herself from time to time, Jolie gushed: 'My children's kindness has been very healing to me.'

Speaking of her tribe, the Golden Globe winner called them all 'pretty great people.'

'Because there's so many of them, I think they've had a very significant effect on each other. It's not like I'm the head of anything,' she explained.

Jolie added: 'I'm very honest with my kids. And I'm very human with my kids.'

'I have six very individual human beings in my home. I am so excited about all the different stages and feelings and curiosities that they go through,'  Jolie told the outlet.

As a mother, she feels it is her job to 'help them figure out who they are' but says that's impossible if you don't 'don't enthusiastically develop with them.'
