Discussing what it was like being directed by Jolie in By the Sea, Pitt explains, “It’s surprising how much I enjoy the direction of my wife. She’s decisive, incredibly intuitive, and, might I say, sexy at her post. I trust her with my life.”
Brad Pitt says about the film, “It was probably not the wisest way to spend a honeymoon. But then again, fighting to make something together…what better metaphor for marriage? It’s not a film that responds to the current zeitgeist or storytelling…rather a quiet, mature look at the challenges of love and adult loss.”
The blond actor continues, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith, this is not…It deals with that period when the honeymoon is well over, and the couple is faced with the banality of every day and the pains of the unplanned.”
