Stressed-Out Ange Breaks Down

Stressed-out ANGELINA JOLIE broke down in tears on Monday as she revealed her late mother inspired her to take on the lead role in new movie Changeling.

The actress' public outpouring of grief is the first sign that being a mother-of-six lively youngsters could be taking its toll.

The actress was in London with partner BRAD PITT to promote the true story of Christine Collins, a woman who's left devastated by the disappearance of her young son in the CINT EASTWOOD-directed film.

During at a press conference a tired-looking Ange recalled the passion and dedication of her own mother MARCHELINE BERTRAND, who died of cancer last year.

Fighting back the tears, Ange said, "She was very much Christine Collins.

She was really sweet and was never angry - she couldn't swear to save her life.

But when it came to her kids, she was really fierce and so this is very much her, her story.

"She was the woman I related to, who had that elegance and strength through just knowing what was right."

Angelina is already being tipped for an Oscar-nomination at next year's ceremony after she wowed critics with her moving performance in the film.
