Angelina Jolie has revealed that getting married to Brad Pitt has changed their relationship and that “it does feel different and “it feels nice to be husband and wife”.

As part of an interview with this month's Vanity Fair magazine, the Maleficent star also reminisced about the wedding ceremony, which took place this summer, and how their six children helped write the vows. 

“They did not expect us never to fight, but they made us promise to always say, "Sorry," if we do. So they said, "Do you?," and we said, "We do!"”

The couple married in France in a small chapel in Chateau Miraval on August 23 of this year, after getting engaged in April 2012. 

Angelina's dress was a custom-made Versace gown and she made it a complete family affair by ensuring that her children were also involved with the design of the dress, with some of their drawings appearing on her veil and dress. 

All six of the stars' children has some part to play in the ceremony; Jolie walked the aisle with her eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10. Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, threw petals, whereas Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, served as ring bearers.

The cover star also discussed her humanitarian work and didn't rule out starting a career in politics saying that she was “open” to the possibility.

“When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered. Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility.”

“But I honestly don’t know in what role I would be more useful— I am conscious of what I do for a living, and that [could] make it less possible.”
