Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – who married in France last month – have been practicing a form of Israeli self defense called Krav Maga to help them prepare for their upcoming movie By The Sea.
Brad, 50, is believed to have lost more than 10 pounds after participating in the intense military-style exercise classes for just three weeks and is even letting his kids join in the fun.
A source told the Daily Mirror: ”The whole family are learning the moves, even the little ones are doing modified kids’ moves but Brad has been doing it for 45 minutes a day and has dramatically lost weight and beefed up his muscles for the film.”
While Brad is new to Krav Maga, Angelina started learning self defense to train for her Tomb Raider role in 2001, and the super-fit pair are now said to be practicing the technique several days a week. The source said: ”Angelina previously learnt Krav Maga when she was doing Tomb Raider and loved it.” The couple recently enjoyed their honeymoon with their children aboard a luxury yacht in Malta while filming began on the picture on the country’s second largest island, Gozo.
