Meanwhile, the husband is drinking too much and the wife attempts to seduce the young husband next door."A few friends asked if we were crazy," Jolie laughed.
"A married couple going through some difficulties..I'm directing him."She later told London's in November 2015, on the eve of the film's release, "If we had married and were just starting a relationship it would have been a disaster, but because we have been together so long we wanted to see how far we could push our relationship and our love and see if we can work together under very intense circumstances and with very complex issues and see if it would make us better.", the 2005 action thriller in which they play married assassins tasked with killing each other.
As 2015 came to a close and Jolie got working on her next film, in hindsight the bloom may have been off the rose.
When interviews veered into personal territory after that, Jolie mainly talked about her children and all of the ways they were broadening their horizons. I happen to be with somebody who finds pregnancy very sexy.
Plus, when the kids want something...well, they obviously have the majority vote. "It's nice being husband and wife."So if it did feel like a new chapter in life, as opposed to just an extension of what already was, it was a little strange that they spent what should have been their honeymoon period making a movie about a couple whose marriage of 14 years is on the rocks.
In , which they at least shot amid idyllic surroundings in Malta, the newlyweds play a couple who've grown apart and become infatuated with the amorous couple staying in the next room at a seaside hotel.
Not that Jolie and Pitt put on any airs about life being perfect 24/7 before they were officially Mr. Jolie-Pitt, nor did the duo not face their share of personal challenges (Jolie underwent a preventative double mastectomy in 2013, followed by the removal of her ovaries and fallopian tubes in 2015); but at the same time, their relationship looked awfully rosy until, as Jolie put it recently, life together became unsustainable. So that makes me feel very sexy."Three years in she was also still incredibly starry-eyed when it came to Pitt, telling the magazine, "After my last divorce, I said I was absolutely going to marry somebody in another field, an aid worker or something.
Then I met Brad, everything I wasn't looking for, but the best man, the best father I could possibly wish for, you know? I see him very much as a dad, as somebody who loves travel and architecture more than being in movies."About the question of whether she and Pitt would ever marry, she said in 2008, "People have made a lot out of it that we're not, but we both have been married before, and it's very easy to get married—but it's not easy to build a family and be parents together.Whomever Angelina Jolie married in 2014 was the same man she fell in love with in 2004.But not long after she and Brad Pitt tied the knot, three years ago today, certain cracks started to appear in the strong front they had presented to the world for all those years of togetherness.That had to have been a bit of a disappointment for Jolie, who in addition to co-starring and directing, also wrote the screenplay.Her Jolie Pas and Pitt's Plan B Entertainment had also joined forces to produce, making it a true Jolie-Pitt production."We're proud of ourselves for being brave enough to try it," also told the DGA. It's something I probably won't do very much of."On multiple levels."Maintaining a marriage and raising kids is hard work.
