In the years since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt met on the set of the high-octane action flick “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” the pair have gone on to work on a spate of critically acclaimed films. Of course, they’ve also created a life for themselves offscreen, raising a brood of six together and traveling the world on a variety of philanthropic projects. So, is Hollywood’s sexiest A-list couple ready for a sequel?
“People have tried. And it’s strange: Do we have kids in the movie?” Angelina Jolie considered in an interview with Vanity Fair. “We’ve thought about that, but it becomes personal now that we actually have kids. And if we work on it, we pull from our own life, which is funny to us, but you feel strange sharing too much,” Jolie said in the magazine’s August issue.
“We did ask somebody to look into ’Mr. & Mrs.’ to see if they could crack a sequel, but there wasn’t anything original. It was just, ’Well, they’re going to get married, or they’ve got kids, or they get separated.’ Never great,” she added.
But even if the chances of a sequel to the 2005 flick seem slim, Jolie said she’d be game to team up with partner Pitt for another project.
“I’d love to. We’ve talked about it. We’d have to figure out who’s going to watch the kids, but it’s really about finding the right thing, because we’ve looked,” she explained. “When you’re a couple, there are certain things people don’t want to see you do. It becomes too indulgent, too personal. I don’t think people want to see people who are really together intimate onscreen.”
Jolie, however, had an idea about how to avoid filmgoers’ tendency to reject some real-life couples hooking up onscreen (see: Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck circa “Gigli”).
“Maybe we have to play bad guys that try to kill each other,” said the actress, whose “Salt” arrives in theaters July 23 . “So it’s just fun and aggressive, not dealing with some man-woman deal.”
