Angelina Jolie reveals what it's like to be married to Brad Pitt

2015-01-02 13:35

Los Angeles - Angelina Jolie says being married to Brad Pitt is an "extraordinary feeling".

The 39-year-old star tied the knot with the Fury actor last  year after nearly ten years together and admits the ceremony was so special because it was shared with their children - Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.

She shared: "As soon as it was all over, we all just changed clothes and hung out. It was just a very happy time. It wasn't this monumental change - we were just very happy and sure, and it's quite an extraordinary feeling to be so sure. It gives you peace."

The Unbroken director - who was previously married to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton - insists she and Brad, 51, who split from wife Jennifer Aniston after meeting Angelina on the set of their 2005 film Mr. & Mrs. Smith, didn't feel pressure on their big day as they were already completely committed to one another.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "What was lovely about it was that we didn't feel there was something missing or we needed to get married.

"We felt so complete, and the commitment to children is one that you cannot walk away from, so we already had that commitment.

"It was really that we wanted to re-commit and commit deeper in a way, and we wanted to celebrate that union with our children."

However, despite claiming marriage wasn't a big deal for them, Angelina admits she and Brad are now even happier than ever.

The brunette beauty added: "And it does feel different when you say, 'My husband', or, 'My wife'. It warms you in a different way and you look at that person a little differently." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
