Currently Booming: Angelina Jolie Admits to Problems in Her Marriage to Brad Pitt


It has been a minute since we have heard anything from Angelina Jolie but that's all about to change. The actress will be seen next month in her film By The Sea, which also stars her husband, Brad Pitt. This project was a real labor of love on Jolie's part as she wrote and also directed it. By The Sea is set in the mid-1970's Paris and follows a dancer and her writer-husband on their travels. The couple is dysfunctional and many have suspected that it might be loosely based on Jolie's own relationship with Pitt. 

The actress is currently covering the November issue of Vogue and inside is an interview that digs a little deeper into the premise of By The Sea and also the state of Jolie's current life. 

Jolie told Vogue in an exclusive interview, "The director was very focused. The actress was unstable. And the writer was deeply confused. This is the only film I’ve done that is completely based on my own crazy mind.” For years, she says, she and Brad called the script for By the Sea “the crazy one. We even called it ‘the worst idea.’  It’s not autobiographical. Brad and I have our issues but if the characters’ were even remotely close to our problems we couldn’t have made the film.”

The fact that Jolie admits to their being any problems at all in her marriage is a bit startling. Celebs like to present the illusion of perfection on all fronts so to hear her admit to issues in her marriage is almost refreshing. Do you believe the characters that she created for By The Sea aren't based on her marriage?
