Angelina Jolie gets candid about her By the Sea love scenes in this new interview.
The 40-year-old actress and director opens up about having to be romantic on-screen with husband Brad Pitt.
“It’s the strangest thing in the world to be lying naked in a bathtub with an iPad that’s showing you the shot outside, while your husband is at the door and you’re directing him to come in and make love to you,” Angelina told EW (via Us Weekly). “[And] in front of a bunch of other men with cameras.”
Angie continued, “Love scenes are strange anyway, but when you’re doing a love scene with a person that you really have sex with? The only way to get through it was for us to all talk about the absurdity of it and make sure no one was feeling awkward.”
“I couldn’t get out of the bathtub to get to the monitor because the director is naked,” Angie added. “We’re artists and want to be free, but Brad — it’s his wife. He was on towel duty. He’d hold the towel over me.”
