While many people might find it challenging to work alongside their spouse, for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt, the arrangement seems to suit them just fine.
In the winter issue of V magazine – which PEOPLE debuted the cover of in the current issue – Pitt, 51, opened up about what it was like being directed by his wife on their upcoming film, By the Sea.
“It’s surprising how much I enjoy the direction of my wife,” he admitted.
When Jolie Pitt, 40, first presented him with the idea of making the film together, he said it was an easy decision to reunite with his wife onscreen for the first time in 10 years. (The two first costarred in 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith.)
“I trust her with my life,” he said.
In fact, Pitt quite enjoys seeing his wife in a position of power.
“She’s decisive, incredibly intuitive, knife-sharp and, might I say, sexy at her post,” he said.
