Angelina Jolie on directing Brad, jealousy and vulnerability.

Angelina Jolie opened up about husband Brad Pitt in an interview with The Telegraph on Sunday, Nov. 8, revealing that the A-list couple has “problems like any other couple” Stars are just like Us. NEW YORK • Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have appeared on screen together for the first time in 10 years in By The Sea, but Hollywood’s leading power couple last Friday got scathing early reviews for the movie, which some deemed a laborious vanity project. Set in a quiet seaside town in France, the movie is inspired by the deliberately paced European art films of the 1960s and 1970s, and tells the story of the imploding marriage of an American couple, depressed former dancer Vanessa (played by Jolie) and blocked novelist Roland ( Pitt).

He wrote that it was a languid attempt at European arthouse cinema that “will prove once again that even the biggest names in the world won’t draw an audience to something that, in and of itself, has no reason for being”. Jolie Pitt says she wrote the film eight years ago, after her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died from cancer, and she opted to leave in her character’s topless scenes despite having had a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction in 2013. “But then I decided that I would absolutely do it as written for that reason – because it’s important not to hide, and to let other women know that you can still have your breasts.

Smith.” “It was an interesting role,” she said of Roland, the writer portrayed by Brad, husband to her character Vanessa. “It was a very unusual thing to direct him and we had to find a new language. If I said, ‘No that was good,’ he would think, ‘Oh, because she knows every little gesture when I get impatient or when I am not really happy.’ I was nervous to not to be able to have the right direction for him, to see him stuck and not be able to push him.” “So it was challenging but we made this private pact that we were going to try to be as open, honest, and emotive as possible, and give to each other as much as we could. Scott Mendelson at Forbes website admired the film more than he enjoyed it and said it may appeal to fans of talky, beautiful to look at foreign movies. Fred Topel of Nerd Report website was kinder than most of the early reviewers last Friday. “Any time you get to see a film-maker’s soul on display, if that doesn’t intrigue you enough for two hours, you’re missing out,” he wrote.

But Variety’s Justin Chang called the movie “an unabashed vanity project” that is “meandering and overlong in ways that will test the patience of even die-hard Brangelina fans”. He worked very hard.” “Well I don’t think Vanessa actually has jealousy,” she pointed out. “I think you think that she does, but the truth is like he says in the end, Vanessa is sad because the other woman makes her sad because she can’t have babies.

It’s those kinds of things, and I think it’s important and I hope that when women see the film, they see through those layers and exactly know what it means.” “You know, it’s a funny thing,” she disclosed. “I love him so much and he’s the father of my children and he is one of my great friends in life so when somebody says he is attractive, I am happy for him. So, I have a trust – and not that I am the only woman that he would ever look at – but I have a trust that he understands the value of family.” “I think there is a beauty to being vulnerable and being human and having scars and so I don’t want to deal with it or hide it. I just wear it and write films like this and embrace other people’s vulnerability.” She added, “It’s a weakness when people try to pretend that they are not vulnerable, because they all are. So, I really trust her when she redirects a scene.” “You’re going to have a long life ahead of you and you’ve got to shake it up and, sometimes, it’s really wonderful to test yourselves, to push each other,” she said.
