He told V magazine: ”It’s surprising how much I enjoy the direction of my wife. She’s decisive, incredibly intuitive, and might I say sexy at her post. I trust her with my life.” Brad also said that working on the movie together gave him and Angelina more time with their six children, Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, nine, and seven-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
He explained: ”At the end of the day, we get to be parents, greeting our lovely, crazy children and talking about their day, making sure they brush their teeth.” Angelina and Brad play an unhappy couple in By The Sea and although Angelina recently admitted their marriage isn’t perfect, she insisted they are nothing like their on-screen counterparts.
She said: ”Brad and I have our issues, but if the characters were even remotely close to our problems, we couldn’t have made the film. This is the only film I’ve done that is completely based on my own crazy mind. As artists we wanted something that took us out of our comfort zones. Just being raw actors. It’s not the safest idea. But life is short.”
