In a recent interview with US Elle, Angelina Jolie has opened up about her relationship with Brad Pitt.
The Maleficent star talked about her relationship with her movie star fiancé and described it as having changed over the past nine years that they've been together.
"You get together and you’re two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy.
"After all these years, we have history—and when you have history with somebody, you’re friends in such a very real, deep way that there’s such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together."
The Oscar-winning actress, who's been divorced twice, also confessed that she thought she'd never actually have children, even though she's now the mother of six.
"I never thought I’d have children, I never thought I’d be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person. Having come from a broken home—you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don’t look for them."
In the candid interview, she also discussed her outrageous behaviour when she was in her twenties, which included kissing her brother at the Oscars in 2000, and her marriage ceremony with Billy Bob Thornton to which they both wore vials of each other's blood.
"It wasn’t a need to be destructive or rebellious—it’s that need to find a full voice, to push open the walls around you. You want to be free. And as you start to feel that you are being corralled into a certain life, you kind of push against it. It may come out very strange, it may be interpreted wrong, but you’re trying to find out who you are."
