March 17 (UPI) -- There were rumors Angelina Jolie might have been in talks to direct the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey, but the actress/director said she'd probably be better at directing other types of movies.

The racy film, which is set to be in theaters Feb. 14, 2015, was ultimately directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, but for a while there was speculation it might be Jolie's sophomore effort at directing after 2011's In the Land of Blood and Honey.

"I came very clear out of the gate: after Blood and Honey, if I ever directed again, it would have to be a certain kind of film," she told Entertainment Weekly. "You know, I’m looking forward to seeing what Sam [Taylor-Johnson] does with 50 Shades and she’s amazing. 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?"
