How Jolie angered Pitt: Jolie Very Heavy, For 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt incorporated their real-life chemistry in playing husband-and-wife assassins. Ten years, five children, and one wedding later, Jolie says that the couple are drawing on another real-life element for their next collaboration-marital frustration.
In an interview with the D.G.A., the Oscar winner discusses By the Sea, the drama she wrote and directed “about a deeply unhappy couple on vacation in France who becomes involved with a pair of newlyweds staying at their seaside inn.” After filming the movie in Malta, Jolie reveals what it was like to be directing herself and her husband, who play the unhappy couple, during the drama’s more intense argument scenes.
“I’d be directing myself and him in a scene where we’re having a fight, and I’d be pulling out the parts [of him] that have an aggression toward me or when you’re frustrated with each other-it was very heavy,” says Jolie. “We kept joking that all of the crew felt like they were living in a house where the parents were fighting and you don’t know where to stand or where to look.”
Making the film and its lead characters’ dynamic even more interesting is the fact that Jolie and Pitt made the project while on their honeymoon. (Last year, Jolie told Vanity Fair that “a few friends asked if we were crazy” for starring together as an unhappy married couple in a film she is directing soon after their wedding.) Jolie describes the project, which also co-stars French actors Mélanie Laurent and Melvil Poupaud, as “an art film, the kind of movie that I like to see but not something I’m usually cast in.”
Having finally made that type of film, however, Jolie says she isn’t necessarily going to make another anytime soon. “We’re proud of ourselves for being brave enough to try it,” Jolie says. “I think By the Sea was the hardest film for me because it wasn’t [issue-driven]. It’s something I probably won’t do very much of.”
As for what ties together her directorial efforts thus far-including Unbroken and In the Land of Blood and Honey-Jolie says, “It’s probably not an accident that the films that I care about happen to be about issues that matter to me, stories that I want to tell,” says Jolie. “If you’re going to spend two years of your life on something it has to matter to you, you have to be passionate about it.”
