Angelina Jolie: I'm
Not The Perfect Wife
She’s a successful humanitarian, actress and mother. But there is one thing Angelina Jolie isn’t good at – being the perfect wife.
On her recent marriage to Brad Pitt, the Oscar winner revealed, “We have moments where I say, ‘I’m going to be a better wife! I’m going to learn to cook,’ and he says, ‘Oh honey, know what you’re good at, know what you’re not.’ He knows my limitations and where I’m a good wife and a good mom.”
After nearly a decade together, the couple officially tied the knot in August in the South of France. Jolie admitted that making their union official had changed things.
“It did change [things]. It was in just a feeling of that security and comfort that we always had, but recommitting after 10 years together. And we were fortunate enough to be in that unusual situation where we got married with our children, and they were a part of the ceremony and they wrote some of the vows. So it was all of us agreeing to be together and to commit to this life together — not because we had to, not because anything was missing in our lives, but because we were absolutely sure. It was really lovely, it was a lovely day, ” she said in an interview with Tom Brokaw on Today.
After heating up the screen in 2005 with Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the newlyweds are reuniting for By the Sea, a drama directed by Jolie.
“The first one we did together we weren’t together, and it was a comedy and it had a lot of action and it was really fun. Ten years on we’ve learned a lot about each other. It was a film about a very troubled marriage, and it felt like the appropriate thing to do on our honeymoon.”
