But after Jolie was cast, some black actors were shocked that the white actress would play Pearl, who is of Afro-Cuban and Dutch descent. Jolie tells Newsweek, "I know that people are frustrated at the lack of great roles [for people of color], but I think they've picked the wrong example here."

Adds Pearl: "This is not about skin color. I wanted her to play me because I trust her. Aren't we past this?" -

Personally, I understand and GET it...but thank goodness AJ is aware (as usual) how things can be perceived! There's a bunch of great biracial actors out there!
