Are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt the next Hollywood couple sadly headed for a split?
In a candid new interview, the 40-year-old actress discussed her new movie By the Sea — in which she costars with her handsome hubby — and admitted she and Brad, 50, have "issues" similar to the troubled couple they portray in the upcoming film.

“This is the only film I’ve done that is completely based on my own crazy mind... It’s not the safest idea. But life is short... 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," she told Vogue of the much-anticipated movie, which she also directed.

In a previous interview with the Director's Guild of America, Angelina said filming fight scenes with Brad was "very heavy" and emotionally taxing. "I'd be directing myself and him in a scene where we're having a fight, and I'd be pulling out the parts [of him] that have an aggression toward me or when you're frustrated with each other — it was very heavy," she said.

"We're proud of ourselves for being brave enough to try it," Angelina added of working with her husband. "I think By the Sea was the hardest film for me because it wasn't [issue-driven]. It's something I probably won't do very much of."
Angelina and Brad — who first became an item in 2006 — married in the south of France in August 2014. The couple are parents to six children; Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, 9, and twins Knox and Vivienne, both 7.
