When Angelina Jolie started filming ‘by the sea’ with her husband Brad Pitt, she knew it would test their relationship or make it stronger.
Talking French Elle, she said “Brad has never seen what I’m like when he’s left me after one of our fights.” “Sometimes I’m strong. But as soon as he leaves the room, I melt into tears.”
“With this film, he sees it,” she added. “And I see into his private moments.”
The mother of six also said that seeing how the other cops after a fight helped them understand each other further in real life.
“I filmed it and I discovered his expressions,” she explained. “So I better understand his frustrations over certain aspects in me.”
By the sea which is directed by Angelina Jolie tells a story of a struggling marriage between Vanessa (Angelina) a former dancer and her writer husband, Roland (Brad).
Working together indeed came with some hiccups because it was hard for them to separate their real feelings from the ones they supposed to portray on screen.
“The most difficult scenes were the most drawn-out fights: normally if Brad sees me cry, it ends by his taking care of me. But here, in the film he had to stay angry, and I couldn’t take it personally,” she said. “It was so strange and interesting.”
