November 10 Angelina Jolie: ‘Brad and I drive each other mad’

Angelina Jolie’s new film is about a warring couple. Might it be based on someone she knows?

It seemed like a good idea at first: the newly married Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt thought they would combine filming By the Sea on location in Malta with their honeymoon. But it didn’t work out quite as they had planned.

“There were a few days when we thought [a working honeymoon] wasn’t the best idea,” laughs Jolie, who wrote, directed, produced and co-starred with Pitt in the low-budget domestic drama. “There were days during filming last year when we were really worried and it was hard.

If we had married and were just starting a relationship it would have been a disaster, but because we have been together so long we wanted to see how far we could push our relationship and our love and see if we can work together under very intense circumstances and with very complex issues and see if it would make us better.

“But at the end we came out of it thinking, ‘This was the best honeymoon,’ because the film says, ‘Whatever you go through, weather the storm and stick together.’

“So it was kind of a message to each other that we are going to stick together whatever comes.”

November 07 Would Brad Pitt Want to Direct Wife Angelina Jolie Pitt Someday?

Angelina Jolie Pitt called the shots while directing husband Brad Pitt in By the Sea – and the star says that’s just the way he likes it.

When asked whether he has any desire to turn the tables and direct his wife in the future, Pitt was forthright in his response.

“No, I have no desire,” Pitt told reporters Thursday in Hollywood at the world premiere gala screening at AFI Fest 2015 presented by Audi. “I’d rather work for her.”

The film stars Pitt, 51, and Jolie Pitt, 40, as a couple stuck in a troubled marriage. Although the pair seem far from troubled in real life – appearing close and loving at the premiere and at the WSJ Magazine 2015 Innovator Awards the previous evening – the couple are the first to admit their marriage isn’t perfect, and that’s okay.

“I think, for me, it’s just that the road is long, and it’s worth fighting for,” he said. “The dividends worth fighting for instead of jumping ship is more profound than any beginning, any kind of new romance.”

Jolie Pitt, meanwhile, told PEOPLE on the red carpet how she and Pitt handle inevitable disagreements.

November 07 Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt’s ‘By the Sea’ Opens AFI Fest

AFI Fest kicked off its annual week of big screen programming at the TCL Chinese Theatre with Thursday night’s world premiere of Angelina Jolie Pitt’s ode to 1970s European art house cinema, “By the Sea,” a lugubrious, slow-moving account of marital strife at a palatial seaside resort on the Maltese coast.

Jolie Pitt, who also wrote, directed and produced the Universal drama, plays a melancholic, pill-popping dancer past her prime opposite husband-producer Brad Pitt, who plays an alcoholic novelist battling writers block.

The movie — lensed during the couple’s honeymoon in Aug. 2014 — was a draw for media, Oscar forecasters and industry folk alike (Gena Rowlands was in attendance), who flocked to see the unfathomably glamorous couple, who turned the event into a makeshift “date night.” This is the first time the Pitts have reunited onscreen since their romance blossomed on the set of 2005’s “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.”

“By the Sea,” said Jolie Pitt, was a study of “grief and loss,” a theme influenced and inspired by the 2007 death of her mother, actress and producer Marcheline Bertrand.

November 07 Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt on Filming a Troubled Marriage

“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.”

November 07 2015 Innovator Awards

One of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples – Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt – stunned on the red carpet Wednesday night.

The A-list pair stepped out for the WSJ Magazine 2015 Innovator Awards, where they kept close to one another on the red carpet at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

The pair might play a couple struggling with their marriage in their upcoming film, By the Sea, but there were certainly no signs of strife between the real-life couple Wednesday. The couple sweetly stayed close for most of the evening, and when Jolie Pitt stepped away for solo photos Pitt cast a protective eye over her to make sure she looked comfortable.

The duo sat with Robert De Niro inside the event, and the Oscar-winning actor presented Jolie Pitt with the WSJ Innovator Award for Entertainment/Film.

November 07 Jolie Reveals the Brad Pitt Moment That Meant More to Her than Their Wedding

When we first heard that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt wed in the South of France last year, we imagined that the nuptials took place in the clouds above the family vineyard, with God himself conducting the ceremony and their six children bearing witness in a scene so heavenly Michelangelo would have painted it on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. As details of the Jolie-Pitt union spilled forth, however, the wedding of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars proved to be charmingly more homespun than we envisioned—with Pax baking the cake, Zahara and Vivienne serving as flower girls, the kids writing the marital vows, and the children’s drawings even adorning Jolie’s wedding gown. And in a new interview, Jolie suggests that the wedding may have meant more to us than it did to the superstars.

When asked about the nuptials while promoting By the Sea, the dark relationship drama she wrote and directed that re-unites her and Pitt on-screen, Jolie responds nonchalantly, “It was just a nice thing.” Jolie, perhaps the only human who might call a wedding to Brad Pitt “just a nice thing,” explains her casual attitude about the nuptials.

“The ceremony was in France, but we had to do things legally in California,” Jolie continues to The New York Times. “One day I was in the edit room, and [Brad] was doing something and an assistant said, ‘You have to sign some papers.’ So we came back and between meetings we were told, ‘Here’s your license.’

“Then someone said, ‘The judge is outside,’” Jolie continues. “We both said, ‘What do you mean, the judge is outside?’ Then the judge came in, this lovely guy, and at some point, Brad said, ‘Shouldn’t we be standing up?’ The judge said, ‘No.’ Then suddenly we realized we were married, in the most unceremonial way possible.”

November 04 Paramount Dates Robert Zemeckis’ Pitt-Cotillard Film For Fall 2016

Robert Zemeckis’ next movie, a sweeping romantic thriller starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, will be released on November 23, 2016, Paramount Pictures said today. The epic project scripted by Steven Knight and produced by Graham King and his GK Films banner is also being produced by Zemeckis and Steve Starkey. Jack Rapke, Knight, Patrick McCormick and Denis O’Sullivan are also listed as EPs.

Zemeckis’ previous collaboration at Paramount was Flight which made $161.8M off a $31M production cost and earned two Oscar nominations for leading actor Denzel Washington and John Gatins’ original screenplay. The director recently released The Walk via Sony/TriStar, and it was one of the adult-title misfires at the fall box office making $10M stateside (The film’s overseas ticket sales are faring better at $28M).

The logline for the new movie is being kept under wraps, but has been billed as a big-scale spy thriller.
