What an open and inneresting interview!
Angelina Jolie Pitt spoke with Australia’s Daily Telegraph for a major interview that was published Sunday, talking about everything from marriage — and menopause — to motherhood, movies, and more.
The actress, who is promoting her new film By The Sea where she co-stars with husband Brad Pitt, was candid and open in the interview, discussing — among other things — the issues and dangers of doing a movie as emotional as this one with her husband:
“It was an experience we wanted to have together creatively. The question is whether people will allow us to just be artists, without picking it apart and trying to make it about us. This film was a test for me in a way ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ of all the things I do, I’m most shy about writing.”
Angie didn’t just discuss the movie, though.
She spoke about growing older, including a very frank discussion about menopause:
“I actually love being in menopause. I haven’t had a terrible reaction to it, so I’m very fortunate. I feel older, and I feel settled being older. I feel happy that I’ve grown up. I don’t want to be young again.”
Angie also talked about what it was like working on screen with her husband — admittedly, a very strange experience as she was directed how to be a couple on camera with a person who was already her partner off the camera:
“It’s awkward that there are so many people around, and you know what? It’s awkward to direct them. That’s the strangest thing, when the director has to tell the actor to perform a particular kind of seduction. Where to put his hand, where to put his ├óΓé¼┬ª Which is a very funny thing to be doing when it’s your husband. So strange.”
We can’t even imagine!! LOLz!
The superstar also revealed how supportive Brad was during and after her double mastectomy, and how it has affected their relationship:
“[Brad] made it very, very clear to me that what he loved and what was a woman to him was somebody who was smart, and capable, and cared about her family, that it’s not about your physical body. So I knew through the surgeries that this wasn’t going to be something that made me feel like less of a woman, because my husband wouldn’t let that happen.”
Overall, it’s a very inneresting and open interview!
For so many reasons relating to their relationship and both of their areas of personal growth over time, it sounds like By The Sea is a must-view film for all fans of Brangelina!
