Brad and Angelina are in deep water with Maltese locals

2014-10-02 14:37

Los Angeles  - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have upset locals on the Maltese island of Gozo, where they have been filming their new movie By The Sea.

The couple's new film - the first they have shot together since Mr and Mrs Smith in 2004 - has led to the closure of a particular part of the island where the diving business is especially prosperous.

Donna Hayler-Montague, who runs Bubbles Diving Centre on the island, told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Brad and Angelina started filming in August and originally the Prime Minister said the bays would be closed for a few days. Now they plan to be here until November.

"Our high season is September and October so they've taken over the bays in that season.

"It is quite dramatic for the diving community. We are asking for a compromise. We have
offered not to take phones or cameras along."

By The Sea is being directed by Angelina, 39, who married Brad, 50, on 23 August 2014 in a private ceremony in Chateau Miraval, France.

The couple have six children, three of whom are adopted -Maddox, Pax and Zahara - and three who are their biological children - Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne.
