Angelina Jolie has taken on some challenging roles in her day, but the actress revealed that none of them were more taxing than the part she played behind the camera for her film In the Land of Blood and Honey.
"Emotionally it's hard to be an actor in some ways, but it is really much harder, I found, to be a producer and director and writer," Angelina disclosed to ET's Christina McLarty at the Producer's Guild Awards in Beverly Hills on Saturday. "You feel the responsibility of everybody involved much more."
Brad Pitt accompanied Angelina to the show, sans his cane, gushing about his lady's exceptional work ethic.
"This one almost died on the vine so many times," said Brad. "I'm really happy to see it get this kind of acclaim."
CBS Corp. president and CEO Les Moonves was honored with the 2012 Milestone Award, which was presented to him by an old friend -- George Clooney.
Moonves explained his connection to The Descendants star, saying, "I'm the one that sent him the script for a little show called E.R., and I said, 'I think you should do this thing.' ... And we've remained very close friends all these years."
