Angelina Jolie Explains Why She Made 'By The Sea' with Brad Pitt”

In 2015, then-spouses Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt costarred in the actress' self-directed film, By the Sea, where they portrayed a couple in the midst of a troubled marriage.

The A-list pair had finally tied the knot after being a glamorous globe-trotting couple for almost 10 years. But really I am just trying to get through my days'.

So what could these two movie stars do?

Jolie, her six children, and actors Kimhak Mun and Sareum Srey Moch from First They Killed My Father at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2017.

Difficult: She said: "Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together".

After all, they met and reportedly fell in love in while making "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" in 2005.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter's podcast "Awards Chatter", she said: 'Over the span of that decade, I did lose my mother. And, I wanted us to do some serious work together. I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate.

The film finds Pitt and Jolie starring as an American couple, her a former dancer and him a writer, who decide to stay at a hotel.

Jolie wrote the script a and would direct.

Jolie and Pitt's marriage wasn't the only life event that influenced By the Sea, however. When I left Cambodia, I was much more conscious of the world. But things start to pick up when they develop a voyeuristic interest in the hot young couple in the suite next door.

She separated with Brad in 2016 but thought that the film could have a positive impact on their relationship by working on a big project together. "They're the best friends I've ever had".

'In some ways it was, and in some ways we learned some things. But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on, and it wasn't because of the film, " Jolie lamented.

Art was kind of imitating life because the movie was about a couple with a ton of problems, including an inability to conceive or be close.

She noted that she had been dealing with different things at various times over the course of their relationship. "If that doesn't make you feel good, then what would?"

"I didn't want to walk in the room as Jon's daughter", Jolie said of her decision to ditch her famous last name when she entered the film industry.
