So what's the real story?

Angelina Jolie was forced to issue a denial after a recent Vanity Fair article claimed she teased Cambodian children with money during the casting process for her upcoming movie First They Killed My Father.

The mag detailed the "disturbing" audition practice, where directors allegedly organized a "game" of "putting money on a table" and asking impoverished children to "to think of something [they] needed the money for" before snatching it away and watching their reactions.

"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," the Oscar winner said in a statement.

Vanity Fair is standing by their story, and backed it up by releasing transcripts from the interview.

"We had this game where it would be — and I wasn't there and they didn't know what they were really doing. They kind of said, 'Oh, a camera's coming up and we want to play a game with you.' And the game for that character was 'We're going to put some money on the table. Think of something that you need that money for.' Sometimes it was money, sometimes it was a cookie. ... 'And then take it.' And then we would catch them. 'We're going to catch you, and we'd like you to try to lie that you didn't have it," she explained during the sit-down.

Sareum Srey Moch, the child actress chosen for the role, became "overwhelmed with emotion," which caught the director's eye. "And I don't think she or her family would mind me saying when she was later asked what that money was for, she said her grandfather died and they didn't have enough money for a nice funeral," Jolie revealed.

This seems like kind of a big deal over nothing. Watch the trailer for the flick below!
