Angelina Jolie Thought Working with Brad Pitt Would Help Their Marriage

So basically, things fell apart because of, well, life.

No, they didn't have another baby - or adopt one from overseas, as could have been their wont, given that adoption is how they came by three of their six children.

Jolie, of course, is busy promoting her latest directorial effort, First The Killed My Father, which may very well end up nominated for an Oscar in the foreign film category (it qualifies as a Cambodian production), but she also reveals there was a time she nearly quit Hollywood all together.

"We had met working together and we worked together well". "We had met working together [on Mr. & Mrs. Smith] and we worked together well". I wanted us to do some serious work together... I thought it could be a good way for us to communicate.

Jolie wrote the script a and would direct.

Brad Pitt's 54th birthday is coming up later this month and as he nears his big day, he is reportedly hoping to spend time with his six kids, including 16-year-old Maddox, 14-year-old Pax, 12-year-old Zahara, 11-year-old Shiloh, and 9-year-old Vivienne and Knox. These American expats head to a picturesque coastal hotel, but they're miserable and barely speaking. "When you see people that have suffered so much, when you see if only they had a spotlight on them, you don't complain so much about your stupid little problems". Angelina opened up about her attempt to save their marriage with their film By The Sea, in The Hollywood Reporter's podcast, Awards Chatter. After Gia, I separated from Jonny [Miller] and I separated amicably and we're still very close friends but we were young and I was moving to NY. In some ways it was [good for communication] and in some ways we learned some things. "Things happen for different reasons, and things - why did I write that exact piece? I'm not sure", she said.

"A piece of art can be something that's healing or something that's hard", she explained.

The movie didn't end up saving the marriage.

However, despite Jolie's fearless face, there were even more problems going on behind closed doors, and she believes that it was her cancer and grief that took a toll on her marriage to Brad Pitt. The film was a disappointment critically and at the box office, but she said acting together on screen helped them navigate some long-standing issues.
