'Jolie Opens Up About Relationship With Pitt'

Angelina Jolie recently opened up about her and Brad Pitt’s relationship, attempting to dispel past rumors that the couple’s relationship was in trouble. “We’re very homebound,” Jolie said of her relationship with fellow actor Brad Pitt in the July issue of Parade magazine. “We’re very much Mommy and Daddy in our pajamas.” While it may be difficult to picture formerly wild Jolie wearing pajamas and playing Mommy, it would seem the actress enjoys her new, quieter life. “There’s never a period when Brad and I are pulled apart,” says Jolie. “We are not separated for more than three days, ever. We stay really connected.” However, the actress admits she and her partner find it difficult having “that special time” together, according to NY Daily News . “He takes the kids to school; he visits me on set with the kids. I’m home for dinner, or I’m there for breakfast... We plan,” says the 35-year-old actress. “Brad and I take time off between films to travel, have big experiences, do things together. That’s how we work it out.” While traveling, or just living at home, Jolie and Pitt hope to spare their six children of the paparazzi, and just hope to give them a happy life, according to the interview. “We do everything we can to keep our kids away from it,” says Jolie, who is starring in Salt, which arrives in theaters on July 23. “We travel to places where the kids aren’t aware of that kind of thing. We try to give them a full life where they don’t have to come face to face with that world. With the paparazzi present, we’re careful when we leave the house...” Jolie also added in the interview that while being “terrible” at defining love, she has found it in her family. “It means wanting the best for the people you love, putting their interests above your own, always,” she says. “Love does that. Love is what you live for.” Source: http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2010/07/08/2010-07-08_angelina_jolie_brad_pitt_accepts_all_my_flaws_and_all_my_oddities.html]
