The 50 Shades of Grey movie didn't make the cut for Angelina Jolie as a director.

Jolie, 38, was previously rumored to be in the line up to helm forthcoming 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie - which is being directed by Sam Taylor-Wood - and insists she's better at telling ''some stories than others''.

Asked about what actually happened regarding talks about the adaptation of E. L. James' erotic trilogy, she told Entertainment Weekly magazine: ''I - I was just.''

Before adding: ''I - I think they're just ... it's funny, I think with directing, you just think, 'I'm better at telling some stories than others,' but, um, who knows?

''I came very clear out of the gate after [2011's romantic drama] 'Blood And Honey', if I ever directed again, it would have to be a certain kind of film.''

Jolie is ''looking forward'' to watching 'Fifty Shades of Grey', which stars Jamie Dornan as sadomasochistic billionaire Christian Grey while Dakota Johnson plays his love interest Anastasia Steele.

The 'Malificent' actress added: ''You know, I'm looking forward to seeing what Sam does with Fifty Shades and she's amazing.''
