Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have not been super active in recent years in their respective careers; having 20,000 kids might not help the situation either, but they seemed to be an idyllic Hollywood celebrity dream couple. Two beautiful people in love must mean that their relationship is beautiful beyond words by default, right?
The longtime-yet-newlywed pair's latest venture was actually together, as if they seem to not be able to get enough of each other. The star dup have been busy promoting a film venture written and directed by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, being the supportive husband he is, costars in the film about a couple's breakdown while vacationing in a mansion in a Southern France seaside town. C'est très belle.
In an interview on the Maltese red carpet with her man by her side, Jolie said that "Brad and I have our issues, but if the characters were even remotely close to our problems we couldn't have made the films. The problems in the movie aren't our specific problems." Woah, a seemingly perfect couple actually fights like a normal couple! Who knew?
