December 07 Jolie on Marriage to Brad Pitt: ‘I’m Gonna Get This Wife Thing Down’

The notoriously private Angelina Jolie is finally opening up about her marriage to Brad Pitt.

In an interview with Tom Brokaw on Tuesday’s Today show, Jolie revealed that her relationship with Pitt has changed since they said “I do.”

Though they had already been together for nearly a decade prior to tying the knot on Aug. 23, she admitted that “recommitting after 10 years of being together” provided an added level of “security and comfort.”

“We were fortunate enough to be in that unusual situation where we got married with our children and they were part of the ceremony and they wrote some of the vows,” Jolie said.

That’s not all – as PEOPLE previously reported, her six children also had a hand in designing her Atelier Versace gown! Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10, walked their mother down the aisle, and Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, acted as flower girls. Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, were ring bearers.

“[Our wedding day] was all of us agreeing to be together and to just commit to this life together,” Jolie continued. “Not because we had to or because anything was missing in our lives, but because we were absolutely sure we felt that much of a family. … It was really lovely. It was a lovely day.”

November 08 Doug Pitt: Not easy to know but ‘the guy who will step in’

Doug Pitt, businessman and founder of Care to Learn, is not an easy man to get to know.

“He is just not a real outgoing guy,” says long-time friend Matt Miller. “His dad is that way. Doug can be seen as distant, disinterested, stand-offish. That is more of a personality thing. … And then you couple that with his life experiences.”

Those life experiences involve having Brad Pitt as an older brother. As a result, people give Doug screenplays for his brother to read. One man came to Doug’s business to ask why Doug and Brad had placed a microchip in his head. Others simply want to hover near the glow of reflected fame.

But there’s something about Pitt few people know, says Miller, a real estate developer who graduated with Doug Pitt from Kickapoo High School in 1985.

“Doug is kind of a bad ass. He is a tough guy,” Miller says. “He would not fight you. Well, he would if he needed to. But with all the charity work he has done — as polished as he has become — you might think you know him.

“He has a very strong sense of right and wrong,” Miller says. “That is one area where he is not bashful. If he ends up in a situation when there is a wrong being done — even if it’s a random situation where it’s being done to someone else — he is the guy who will step in.”

Douglas Mitchell Pitt, 48, stepped in to help his community back in 2007. It started when he was at a Springfield Chamber of Commerce meeting. He was astounded by stories he heard of children in poverty right in his hometown.

October 26 How Brad Pitt Taught His Son About War

This weekend, Brad Pitt’s Fury is not just the box office number one movie making $23.5 million. The film about the World War II tank crew’s last offensive against the waning Nazi forces in 1945 was also a teachable moment for Pitt’s son Maddox.

In an interview with the Associated Press, the actor talked about his eldest son’s reaction to watching the film.

“He’s a bit of a World War II buff so it’s interesting for him, I think, but it’s still dad so it’s not that cool.”

It was important to Pitt to explain the reality of war to his kid. “The younger generation play a lot of video games and I want them to understand that there is casualty, you don’t just reboot. There are real consequences and real stakes so we talked a lot about that.”

Fury dislodged Gone Girl after a few solid weeks at number one. The psychological thriller starring Ben Affleck takes second this weekend at $17.8 million — which adds up to over $100 million total gross in just three weeks.

While Pitt was working on Fury, his wife Angelina Jolie was also working on a World War II film, Unbroken, out in December.

Pitt told the AP that they were learning together. “I was studying the European theatre, she was studying Pacific theatre. I was studying tanks, she was studying bombers. and yeah It was good fun for us.”

Brad Pitt stars as Sergeant Don ‘Wardaddy’ Collins in Fury. The actor says he’s “comfortable” letting his 13-year-old son, Maddox, see the movie despite its grisly depiction of war battle because he can handle the content.

While the World War II drama Fury depicts a gruesome look at war through the exploits of a tank crew in Nazi Germany, Brad Pitt feels his 13-year old son, Maddox, can handle the content.

“He’s a World War II buff,” Pitt told The Associated Press on Wednesday night on the red carpet for the film’s world premiere.

‘The world is a beautiful place, but it’s also a very violent place. We talk about it afterward, so I’m not so opposed’

October 26 Pitt on What His Kids Think of His Marriage

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s six children played a large role in their parents’ recent wedding – after all, it was the kids who urged them to get married and even penned the couple’s vows.

So how are Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and 6-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox enjoying their mom and dad being husband and wife?

“They like it,” Pitt told PEOPLE at the world premiere of his new movie Fury in Washington, D.C., Wednesday, pausing thoughtfully and smiling. “They like it.”

Pitt spent time with members of the military, including retired WWII veterans, at the patriotic premiere. He also got plenty of face time with his costars while making the war movie; Navy SEALs put the cast through boot camp to prepare them for their roles.

“It was actually very complex. It wasn’t like, dig a foxhole and you’re done,” director David Ayer told PEOPLE on the red carpet. “It was engineered to break them down and then build them up as a team. Once they came out of that, they were glowing. They had this incredible chemistry together and I was a bit jealous because I hadn’t shared in that experience and was now an outsider.”

One insider, 22-year-old Logan Lerman (who played Charlie in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and the youngest team member on the tank crew in Fury) had an intimate task assigned to him during boot camp.

In an effort to keep the men sleep-deprived, they took turns staying awake on watch each night. Because Logan’s rank was at the bottom of the list, he had a very senior member of the group behind him.

“We each had to wake the next person, and the next person was Brad for me,” Lerman told PEOPLE. “So I had to be the guy to wake Brad Pitt up.”

So, how did that go?

October 06 Brad Pitt: Fatherhood Makes Me ‘Feel Like the Richest Man Alive

“I worry about them all the time,” he said in the November issue of Psychologies. “That’s the emotional bond and responsibility that sweeps over you when you have a family to look after.”

The father of six, who recently tied the knot with Angelina Jolie, went on to say that his children have taught him the true meaning of love.

“I care about them more than I care about myself,” said Pitt, 50. “You see past yourself and become more generous and giving, and wanting only the best for your family.”

He added: “You learn to value the basic beauty of family, of watching your children grow and evolve. It’s the most beautiful thing you can experience.”

The kids even came along for Pitt and Jolie’s honeymoon in Malta, where they enjoyed family excursions aboard a luxury yacht, as well as bowling trips and tours of the Mediterranean.

“They had fun with their kids,” an onlooker told PEOPLE. “They were friendly with everyone and smiling.”
