By the Sea is about a couple who have been married for 14 years who drive to a coastal hotel despite barely being on speaking terms. But they nearly immediately found themselves dealing with more than the usual slump that afflicts couples juggling busy careers, kids and various domestic responsibilities.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
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.
Angelina and Brad met and fell in love while they were filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith back in 2005, and everyone thought that they are living a fairy tale, but things were not like that at all. "I wanted us to do some serious work together, I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate". Pitt's character wants to write a short story and drink, and is upset that his wife is no longer interested in physical intimacy with him.
In addition to starring in the romantic drama "By the Sea" with Pitt, Jolie also directed it.
Yes, it's that dreary, so it's no surprise that Jolie admits that there was some "heaviness" between her and Pitt during the shoot. I started to learn more about what was happening, and I became more involved and I learned about refugees and U.N.H.C.R., and I wanted to educate myself further.
"But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on and it wasn't because of the film", she said.
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 continued: 'It was something that we were dealing. things happen for different reasons, and things. why did I write that exact piece? If that doesn't make you feel good, then what would?
Jolie and Pitt's actual relationship didn't end quite as neatly, and she says that when she wrote the script she was going through certain issues as well.
"A piece of art can be something that can be healing or something that's hard", she added. She then filed for divorce two years later. Jolie appeared on the podcast, Awards Chatter, to discuss her film First They Killed My Father, although ended up discussing much more than just that.
