Brad Pitt Gushes About Angelina Jolie: “She’s Decisive, Incredibly Intuitive, Sexy at Her Post”.

Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt has opened up about the difficulties of starring alongside his wife in a film about a marriage breakdown, but admits he finds it sexy when she directs him.

The A-lister opened up to V Magazine about his collaboration with off-screen wife Angelina Jolie for the movie, “By the Sea,” about a married couple struggling to stay together in 1970s France. And adding to the drama of the Jolie-written and directed movie that opens on Nov. 13: cameras started rolling immediately after their August 2014 wedding. Smith chemistry burned holes through movie screens (and one real-life marriage), the now-married movie stars re-unite on-screen this November in By the Sea. It was filmed during the couple’s honeymoon following their wedding in France in August last year. “It was probably not the wisest way to spend a honeymoon,” the 51-year-old star said in an interview with V Magazine. “But then again, fighting to make something together…what better metaphor for marriage? “It’s not a film that responds to the current zeitgeist or storytelling.

Describing his wife’s film as a “a quiet, mature look at the challenges of love and adult loss,” Pitt said that he felt more pressure than on most pictures becuse, “naturally I didn’t want to fail Angie’s words.” Despite their decade-long relationship, the two only previously worked together on the 2005 action comedy, “Mr. & Mrs. Pitt, who resembles a younger Robert Redford in the photos in the magazine that hits stands on Nov. 12, illuminated a little more about the writer he plays in the drama. Balkan war drama In the Land of Blood and Honey was nominated for best foreign language film at the Golden Globes in 2011, and last year’s Unbroken scored three Oscar nominations.

If I’m going to work, I want to work with my wife.” This time around, Pitt and Jolie’s characters—his a writer, and hers a former dancer—travel to France in attempt to save their troubled marriage. “By the Sea deals with that period when the honeymoon is well over and the couple is faced with the banality of every day and the pains of the unplanned,” Pitt explains. “There are no Hallmark cards that define the next chapter, or the value of a history together. And despite the heaviness of the subject matter, Pitt says he thoroughly enjoyed the creative process. “[It’s] surprising how much I enjoy the direction of my wife,” Pitt gushes. “She’s decisive, incredibly intuitive, knife-sharp, and might I say, sexy at her post. The story explores bereavement, and is set in the 1970s because Jolie liked the idea of exploring the decade when her mother would have been in her 20s.

Thinking that she would never make the film, Jolie said, “I wrote with a certain kind of freedom.” Pitt was well aware of the script, and together they called it “the crazy one” and “the worst idea,” but after getting married, they decided to tackle it as their creative, kinda dysfunctional honeymoon. “As artists we wanted something that took us out of our comfort zones. . .Just being raw actors. But life is short.” “It’s not autobiographical,” Jolie clarified. “Brad and I have our issues, but if the characters were even remotely close to our problems, we couldn’t have made the film.”
