“That this became our honeymoon is just f—ing funny.”

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are making the rounds promoting their upcoming film together, By the Sea, which opens on Nov. 13. The film focuses on a marriage in crisis and not only stars Jolie Pitt; it was written and directed by her, too.

Jolie Pitt said it was challenging to play a troubled couple with her new husband. “It was not easy,” she said in an interview with WSJ. Magazine. “We just had to be brave and say, ‘OK, honey, we’re strong enough to do this; let’s somehow use this to make us stronger.’ “

The actress is on the cover of the WSJ. Magazine November issue, which hits newsstands on Saturday. She said that she and Pitt “had to stay in our corners, like boxers, and not be husband and wife.” She added, “It was very hard to do those scenes without Brad and I taking care of each other. Normally in between takes, you’d make sure that the other’s OK, but we had to be able to really get ugly.”

Pitt also was interviewed for the publication, and he talked about what it was like having his wife as his director. “Being a couple, we have that shorthand that can be communicated in a look. Conversely, it means I knew immediately if she felt a take stunk.”

Rumors, begone. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are one of Hollywood’s most talked-about couples, but the pair have one thing in common that goes without saying: an unwavering love and respect for one another.

In a rare joint interview set to air Monday, Nov. 2, the couple, who secretly tied the knot in France in August 2014, sat down with NBC’s Tom Brokaw to open up about their life as a married couple.

Asked how he felt when Jolie, 40, had to undergo a surgery to remove her ovaries earlier this year, Pitt, 51, said he was behind the actress’ choice 100 percent.

“Whatever’s got to be done to keep the family together, and keep the family together as long as possible is gonna be done,” the Moneyball actor said. “This was her charge, no question. It’s a scary decision. There’s many things that can go wrong and go many different directions.”

Jolie opted to remove her ovaries two years after going public with her decision to get a preventive double mastectomy in 2013. But despite her own nervousness, she said she knew she could count on Pitt to keep her afloat.

“I knew through the surgeries that [Pitt] was on my side and that this wasn’t something where I was going to feel less of a woman, because my husband wasn’t going to let that happen,” she said.

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.)

Why?

“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.

Angelina Jolie Pitt’s third narrative feature, BY THE SEA, centers on a married couple (Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt) in the 1970s on vacation in a small seaside town, struggling to save their relationship. The film, set in France, is based on an original idea by Jolie Pitt.

AFI: The film’s narrative and its characters are evocative of French and Italian films of the late 1960s and 1970s. Were there any specific films that served as an inspiration as you wrote and directed BY THE SEA?

Angelina Jolie Pitt: No. But I was conscious of the creative freedom that artists had at that time. That was an influence and something we were trying to explore.

The time and place in which this film is set are essential to how the couple relate to each other and the emotional crisis at the heart of the story. Was this always a story that was set in the 1970s, or did this evolve as you wrote and developed the characters and the script?

It was always set in the 1970s because it was a very unique and rich time for art and politics.

The new By the Sea trailer for the film written and directed by Angelina Jolie Pitt

Universal Pictures has released (via EW) the new trailer for By the Sea, Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie Pitt’s directorial follow-up to the studio’s Unbroken that stars herself and her real-life husband, Brad Pitt. You can watch the By the Sea trailer in the player below.

Written, directed and produced by Jolie Pitt, the dramatic film also features an international ensemble led by Mélanie Laurent, Niels Arestrup, Melvil Poupaud and Richard Bohringer.

By the Sea follows an American writer named Roland (Pitt) and his wife, Vanessa (Jolie Pitt), who arrive in a tranquil and picturesque seaside resort in 1970s France, their marriage in apparent crisis. As they spend time with fellow travelers, including young newlyweds Lea (Laurent) and François (Poupaud), and village locals Michel (Arestrup) and Patrice (Bohringer), the couple begins to come to terms with unresolved issues in their own lives.

In its style, and its treatment of themes of the human experience, By the Sea is inspired by European cinema and theater of the ’60s and ’70s.

“This is a story about a relationship derailed by loss, the tenacity of love, and the path to recovery and acceptance,” said Jolie Pitt in a statement earlier this year. “It has been a privilege to explore these universal human experiences with such a generous and talented cast and crew.”
