Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had been an item for nearly eight years before they wed in August — but that doesn’t mean officially tying the knot hasn’t affected the couple’s relationship.

In a new interview with ‘Today’ correspondent Tom Brokaw, the Oscar-winning actress, 39, revealed since exchanging “I Dos” in an intimate ceremony in the South of France Brad, 50, has inspired her to “be a better wife,” and learn how to cook!

“We have more moments where I say, ‘I’m going to be a better wife,'” Angelina said of life at home. “‘I’m going to learn to cook,’ and [Brad] says, ‘Oh, honey, know what you’re good at.’ But I do like, ‘No, no, no, I’m going to get this wife thing down.’ He knows my limitations and where I’m a good wife and a good mom.”

“It did change,” she told the 74-year-old journalist. “We were fortunate enough to be in that unusual situation, we got married with our [six] children and they were part of the ceremony. It was all of us agreeing to be together and to just commit to this life together. Not because we had to… because we were absolutely sure we felt that much of a family.”
