Angelina Jolie Covers The Hollywood Reporter ‘Rule Breakers’ Issue, Talks Brad Pitt Honeymoon and More

December 17, 2014

Angelina Jolie graces the cover of The Hollywood Reporter ‘rules breaker’ issue and reveals some of the reasons she fits that very concept as she talks about spending her honeymoon with Brad Pitt shooting ‘By the Sea,’ a movie about a couple trying to save their marriage.

Yes, and that was just the very beginning of the Oscar-winning actress’ lively discussion with ‘The Hollywood Reporter.’ While it may be well known, factually at least, that she directed the upcoming movie, ‘By the Sea’ and costarred opposite her husband, the circumstances are still a bit eyebrow raising as she herself acknowledged.

Angelina Jolie said, “Yes, we spent our honeymoon playing two people in a terrible marriage. I’m sure a therapist would have a field day analyzing the films I choose to do. But it’s been 10 years since Brad and I have worked together. It felt like it was time.”

Yes, and ironies of ironies for a couple who met on the set of ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ and prior to such meeting were not a couple. But they have apparently survived both a honeymoon under unusual circumstances are are still a couple.

Again, it may be known, but for those who did not know or who may have forgotten, Angelina Jolie does not have an agent, a manger or a publicist. Of the latter, she said, “I had one once and didn’t like it.”

As for not having an agent, she said, “‘I like to work very directly with people. I don’t want somebody in the middle. I’d rather speak for myself.”

With or without the usual bevy of handlers around her, Angelina Jolie has nonetheless forged a career which is still on a zenith, as her second feature film directorial effort — the World War II biopic ‘The Unbroken’ — hits theaters.

She said of her successes, “I never had a plan for my life. I do what I want to do. And if suddenly tomorrow I couldn’t do anything, I could deal with that. I’d be happy at home being a mom.’

And indeed, she has been somewhat famous as the mother of six. But it’s the intrigue, the rare interview, the rare glimpse into the woman herself who has very much become a Hollywood icon in our contemporary times.
