The 37-year-old singer narrated a long tale about how he wrote a
song for Jolie's upcoming movie, reported E! Online.
"I got a message that said, 'Meet in this undisclosed location.
You'll be blindfolded and picked up by seven ex-Navy SEALS. So they
kidnapped me, hit me over the head, and sprayed me with Mace. When
I woke up, I was in an office, and Brad Pitt was doing push-ups as
Angelina Jolie was just sitting there with her crown on.
"There was also a guy holding a knife to my throat, and she
said, 'Write me a song or else.' And Brad Pitt said, 'Yeah. What
she said'. "We wrote a song and then she said, 'It's through to the
final eight,' and then we had live eliminations at her house. We
came in second, but the main guy chickened out," Martin
However, the 'Coldplay' frontman said it was great working
with the duo. "I find that a little bit of limitation is really
helpful when you're trying to create... It's the same way when
someone says to me, 'Here's the film and the book. Write something
about that.' It's really nice to have those limitations because
otherwise, where do you start?," Martin said.
'Unbroken' is a movie based on the life of World War II survivor
and Olympic athlete Louis Zamperini directed by Jolie, 39. The film
will release on December 25.
