Angelina Jolie on Working with Brad Pitt in 'By the Sea': I Appreciate His Process Even More Than Before

Angelina Jolie Pitt is opening up about working with her husband Brad Pitt on their upcoming romantic drama By the Sea.

The 40-year-old actress and director talked to People about the project, which hits theaters on November 13.

“It focuses on three couples, all at different stages in their lives,” Angelina said. “And at its center are the questions of what happened to Roland and Vanessa and why they are in the place they are now.”

“It was difficult to be both inside and outside of the scenes, to be able to give directions,” Angelina said (along with acting, she also directed and wrote the movie!) On giving direction to her hubby, she said, “It was hardest [when] I was directing our fight scenes.”

“I understand and appreciate his creative process and his work ethic even more than before,” Angelina added about Brad‘s process. Head on over to People to see some first look photos from the movie!

    Exclusive Photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt’s New Movie By the Sea! Why It Made Her Appreciate Him ‘Even More’

    It’s been 10 years since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt fell for each other on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith – beginning their love story and later cementing them as one of Hollywood’s most powerful couples – but now the stars are reuniting on screen in the new romantic drama By the Sea.

    Set in France during the 1970s, By the Sea tells the story of a struggling marriage between Vanessa (Jolie Pitt), a former dancer, and her writer husband, Roland (Pitt). “It focuses on three couples, all at different stages in their lives,” the 40-year-old mom of six tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “And at its center are the questions of what happened to Roland and Vanessa and why they are in the place they are now.”

    Now Jolie Pitt is sharing behind-the-scenes photos from the set, and opening up about what it’s like to work with her husband again after all these years.

    The couple, who are coming up on their one-year wedding anniversary, traded in a typical newlywed celebration of private vacation time for an “unconventional” honeymoon, as Jolie Pitt describes it. The whole family, including their six children, jetted off to the Mediterranean nation of Malta to begin filming the ’70s drama.

    Jolie Pitt wore numerous hats while working on set, acting as the writer, director and star of the film. “It was difficult to be both inside and outside of the scenes, to be able to give directions,” she explains.

    The couple have no problem working together as parents and philanthropic partners, but for Jolie Pitt, taking on the role of director and giving Pitt, 51, instructions was not an easy task.

    “It was hardest [when] I was directing our fight scenes,” she says.

    But finding new ways to overcome this challenge only brought the couple closer together.

    “I understand and appreciate his creative process and his work ethic even more than before,” she adds.

    By the Sea hits theaters Nov. 13.

    OT for toastie postie, gold dust woman and busted from previous thread. Skip please if not interested…big time gossip and another LAP.

    tp…
    this break up is big…Kermit and Miss Piggy have been together since 1978…that’s 37 years!!! that’s a long time for Hollywood. Even Wikepedia has updated their information regarding the split and it just happened yesterday.

    re: “I think she dumped him when he made one too many jokes about pigs, especially when she asked him when was he going to get her an engagement ring. His dumb answer was, “When Pigs fly.” Doh!”

    yep, Kermit was always rude to her and she is such a fragile soul despite her brazen sexy appeal. I think it’s a cover for sensitive personality. He never respected her…and treated her…like well, a pig.
    >>>>>>>>
    re: “I think Miss Piggy has had some plastic surgery done to her face.”

    I wasn’t going to say anything but she does look good and since 1974 she hasn’t aged a bit…not one wrinkle…and she is outside a lot being a pig and all. Maybe it’s all that mud that keeps her looking so young. Aniston should try mud on her face and body after tanning so much. She could learn a lot from the elegant Miss Piggy.
    >>>>>>>
    re: “I’d forgotten about Gonzo having a crush on her.”

    you know this is not well known but she did have a fling with cookie monster. Even though he was “piggish” in his mannerisms with bits of cookies always flying about, she couldn’t take it anymore and living in a trash can was just not her thing and it was too small for the two of them, she prefers the sty and the open space. And then there was always the problem with his serious addiction to cookies…serious addictive obsession that no therapy could resolve IMO. Plus he is always so negative and grumpy, Miss Piggy is essentially a “happy” individual and sees the positive in life.

    re: “This is almost as shocking as hearing that Marge and Homer Simpson will be separating next series. Now, that is a major blow.”
    >>>>>>>>
    Kermit and Miss Piggy did say in their press conference,
    “”Piggy and I have gone our separate ways romantically,” he said to a crowd of reporters. “It can be tough to work with your ex. It can be tough to be the executive producer on your ex’s late-night TV show, especially when your ex is a pig. I don’t know whether any of you have ever dated pigs.”
    Kermit insisted the couple are “professional adults,”…

    I didn’t know Kermit was ex-producer of her late night TV show.
    >>>>>>
    I’m disappointed in that they left out the typical joint verbiage…”After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to separate,”… “We go forward with love and friendship for one another and whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private matter. Thank you for understanding.”
    >>>>>>>>>

    so I think they will be okay except Miss Piggy is taking this pretty hard after all he is already off frogging with Denise, another frog of the same species…that must hurt Miss Piggy a lot. They were the first and most popular inter-species relationship that has lasted for so long. They were great role models for all ages and all racially, specie-ally, culturally and religiously divergent ideologies.
    Although Bert and Ernie are great role models for gays…they were the first to come out when no one else dared to.

    I always thought it would be her cheating on him before him…but typical in real life, the man always finds another, Denise is probably much younger, thinner, bubblier with no real life experiences like Miss Piggy. He likely expects the much younger Denise to have his babies because well…Miss Piggy and Kermit couldn’t for obvious reasons…and Kermit wants Denise to take care of him in his late life years.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Dayum. I love the pix…but I love the way Angie & Uni are working this even better. All those people who’ve been waiting for a trailer…and instead they dropped an exclusive look with Peeps the same way the gave Peeps’ sister publication EW the exclusive first set pix. They know this is a movie that’s going to require a different type of publicity. It’s not a superhero flick, it’s not an action flick, it’s not a comedy – so they have to go after the MVM moms who buy Peeps and want to see a “love story.”

    One would assume a trailer is about to drop as well, so maybe then the troll will stop pissing her pants demanding one. The movie is obviously NOT being hidden. They’re just not showing all their cards too soon.

    PS – Those wigs suck…

  • Passing Through

    BBBBWWWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    I’m laughing at some moron in the Peeps comments -

    melanie • 39 minutes ago

    It will be a box office bomb. She is past it. No one cares about her anymore.

    So of course I couldn’t help myself and I replied…

    You are so right. The last time she put out a movie no one cared to the tune of $758 MILLION WORLD WIDE. She couldn’t even get her last movie – the highest grossing female led movie of all time to have an original story without superheroes, that went toe-to-toe with big superhero summer tentpoles, that wasn’t based on a best-selling YA novel series, that didn’t have multiple big name co-stars, and was sold solely with her name and her image on the posters – to $800 MILLION WORLD WIDE. It just sucks to way she’s “past it.”

    PS – I’m sure you’ll be the first one in line at your local theater so you can rush back online and tell us all how bad the movie was. Sit. The. Hell. Down.

    Movie tickets at my local theater are 6 dollars on Tuesdays. I’m seriously considering this.

    ++++++++++++++++++++

    I wouldn’t bother – the trailer should be online by Friday. If they’ve got it on the schedule for a movie that’s opening Friday then generally the trailer will drop online a few days before that. Plus, there’s no guarantee that your local theater will be showing the trailer. If you looked at the 2nd link you’ll se there are 19 movies with trailers that COULD possibly be shown before Ricky and the Flash. You’d just have to hope your local theater chose BTS as one their trailers.

    Scrolll down to Page 2 and you’ll see the full list of movies that could POSSIBLY play before BTS. Plus, if you read the instructions at the top of Page 2 it says, “Please place trailers on 2nd and 3rd versions of feature when available.” I’m not sure if that means to show the trailer only during the post-matinee shows, ie, the “feature” presentation after 7pm or what. And later on when you look at the BTS listing under Universal (Page 12) it says, “Place with appropriate features” so I don’t think it’ll be showing before any movie not aimed at a certain demographic.

    http://digitalcinema.bydeluxe.com/site/dlxportal/docs/TrailMis_by_Deluxe-_WK_32_US.pdf

    Long story short – I think the trailer will be online later today or tomorrow – but definitely by Friday because it doesn’t say ‘EXCLUSIVE”…

  • wika

    I thought the wigs looks pretty decent though. Maybe because I’m comparing it with ticky’s hair…. LOL.

Esther had her own froggie suitor visit her pool right before the break-up…. her fans wondered if it might have been Kermit but Esther’s dads said she’s not allowed to date. Esther should call Miss Piggy as Esther literally has more clothes than most of us and is a fashionista like Miss Piggy. https://www.facebook.com/estherthewonderpig?fref=ts

    The picture where the wig is pinned up – that one looks the worst. The others are just look kinda cheap. When is Angie ever going to learn – if you want the best fake her – ya gotta call Hair Boy! Say what you will about about Kim Kartrashian – but her weave game is always top notch. It never looks plastic or like it came from Sally Beauty Supply. Even Ticky only uses the best Italian weave hair…

  • Passing Through

    I’ll read them occasionally. That was the very first comment at the top of the NEWEST sort, so I didn’t have to read a ton of them. I was just LMAO that some idiot really thinks nobody goes to see Angie’s movies like nobody goes to see Ticky’s movies. And you’ll notice that I was polite enough NOT to throw that in her face. What I should have said was, “Stop confusing Angelina Jolie’s box office appeal and results with Jennifer “Oops, I Flopped Again” Aniston’s.”

    Happy birthday to Maddox! I can’t believe he’s 14. I feel old. lol
