When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt began filming By the Sea, they knew they were going to discover new things about their relationship.
One big surprise? Jolie Pitt, who directed the film, admits it was especially eye-opening to see how they both react in the aftermath of a blowout.
“Brad has never seen what I’m like when he’s left me after one of our fights,” she told French Elle for its December issue. “Sometimes I’m strong. But as soon as he leaves the room, I melt into tears.”
“With this film, he sees it,” she added. “And I see into his private moments.”
Jolie Pitt, 40, said that seeing how the other copes after a fight helped them understand one another better in their real-life relationship.
