Angelina Jolie and her husband Brad Pitt are still in the middle of promoting their new movie “By The Sea” and they have opened up about their family lives.
Their roles in the movie could’ve damaged their new marriage, but thankfully they were able to move past it. She revealed, “We had to stay in our corners, like boxers, and not be husband and wife. It was very hard to do those scenes without Brad and I taking care of each other. Normally in between takes, you’d make sure that the other’s okay, but we had to be able to really get ugly.”
Brad said that he never had been directed by Angelina before, but now knows the ins and outs of it. He said, “Being a couple, we have that shorthand that can be communicated in a look. Conversely, it means I knew immediately if she felt a take stunk.”
Despite having such a huge spotlight on their lives, everything else is calm and cool. Angelina said, “We wake up, we make breakfast. In our domestic life, we’re Mom and Dad. And often we’re dorky Mom and Dad, which the kids find ridiculous.”
Brad revealed, “When Angie has a day off, the first thing she does is get up and take the kids out. This is the most important ‘to do’ of the day. No matter how tired she might be, she plans outings for each and all. She has an incredible knack for inventing crazy experiences for them, something new, something fresh. I may be the bigger goof of the pair, but she invents the stage.”
Of her medical issues, she said, “I want to make sure my kids are never worried about me. Even if I’m going through something, I make sure they are very aware that I’m totally fine. I’ll stop and make a joke, I talk to them. I never, ever want them to have that secret worry and feel that they have to take care of me.”
Brad added, “You have to understand that this is a woman who never knew she’d make it to 40. This is a woman who had watched her mother, aunt and grandmother become sick and eventually succumb, all at an early age. Her drive, her absolute value in herself, is defined by the impact she can have during her time here – for her kids and for the underprivileged and those suffering injustices.”
