Los Angeles, Nov 1 (IANS) Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have cleared up rumours suggesting that their marriage is in trouble. Jolie says their relationship is “very stable” despite fight scenes in their new movieBy The Sea.
"I'm counting on the audience to know that if it was close to us at all, we could never make this film,” Jolie said in a joint interview with Pitt on a TV show "Today", reports aceshowbiz.com.
“It's because we're actually very, very stable and these aren't our issues,” she added.
In a new trailer of the movie, tears, screams and slaps between the couple appear dominantly.
Jolie further recalled the moment when she thought she should be a more "conventional" wife.
She says that her husband wanted to take a course of cooking after he learned that she's not good at cooking.
Jolie praises Pitt for support during her surgeries
Angelina Jolie has praised her husband and actor Brad Pitt for his support during her preventative double mastectomy in 2013, and the surgery to remove her ovaries earlier this year.
“I knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that this wasn't something where I was going to feel less of a woman, because my husband wasn't going to let that happen,” Jolie said in a joint interview with Pitt on talk show “Today” to promote their forthcoming film “By The Sea”, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Jolie had the double mastectomy at the age of 37, after learning that she had an 87 percent risk of developing breast cancer due to a defective BRCA1 gene.
Due to the same anomaly, she had a 50 percent risk of developing ovarian cancer and decided to get the oophorectomy two years later, which brought upon early menopause.
Pitt said that his role was to “support” Jolie as much as possible during that time.
He said he would do “whatever's got to be done to keep the family together, and keep the family together as long as possible is going to be done.”
The couple, who have six children, got married in August 2014 after nine years together.
“By The Sea” will release on November 13.
