Directing Brad Pitt In A Sex Scene 'Wasn't That Hard' For Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie just finished directing her third movie (after "In the Land of Blood and Honey" and the forthcoming "Unbroken"). Titled "By the Sea," it's a romantic drama starring her and Brad Pitt as a couple making last-ditch efforts to save their marriage. (Life doesn't always imitate art, right?)

The last time Jolie and Pitt shared the screen was 2005's "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," where their romance first bloomed. Now, nine years into their own relationship, Jolie is tasked with directing her real-life hubby in a sex scene.

“I was the other person in the love scene, so it wasn’t that hard,” she told MTV News in a new interview with Josh Horowitz. “And he knows what I need. He’s always known.”

Well, well, well! "By the Sea" has wrapped, so it seems we can rest easy knowing the movie's plot hasn't spilled over to real life. Jolie knows people will compare the film to her actual relationship, but she's prepared.

"Yes, we spent our honeymoon playing two people in a terrible marriage," Jolie told The Hollywood Reporter. "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."
