Even couples who really love each other can find it challenging to work together, let alone to work together in a situation where one is giving the other orders.
"By the Sea," which hits theaters in November, features the couple starring opposite each other for the first time since 2005's "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." Only there's a new wrinkle this time: Angelina Jolie also directed this movie, which meant telling her husband how to act -- literally.
So, how did it go?
Said the actor: "It's surprising how much I enjoy the direction of my wife. She's decisive, incredibly intuitive, and might I say sexy at her post. I trust her with my life."
Not that it's at all surprising to hear that Angelina makes an excellent lady boss. But with weeks to go before "By the Sea" hits theaters, this series of comments from Brad is an amazing, early rave review.
