'Brangelina' may have been partners for a decade and parented six children together, but Angelina Jolie has admitted that filming her new movie By The Sea severely tested their relationship.
Seemingly one of the most solid (and unfairly attractive) couples in Hollywood, you would think that working together would be an easy task. However, when dealing with a story of a couple trapped in a loveless marriage, it's natural for an audience to question whether the plot is vaguely self-referential.
This is the first time Jolie and Pitt have starred alongside each other since filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith back in 2005, when their relationship started. However, Jolie has reassured us that By The Sea's narrative has nothing to with their relationship and, if it had, it would have been dangerous to approach such a storyline together.
Talking to The Telegraph, she said:
“There were a few days when we thought [a working honeymoon] wasn’t the best idea. 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."
Angie then reassured us that the pair are actually 'very, very stable,' and if her claims weren't proof enough, just clapping eyes on how loved up they seemed at the world premiere should be.
