The actress, who recently married Brad having dated him for a decade, opened up about juggling life as a world famous actress, and as a wife.

Jolie is currently filming 1970s romance 'By The Sea' with her 51-year-old beau- a film she wrote.

Speaking about their marriage, the Tomb Raider star said:

'We have moments where I say, "I’m going to be a better wife! I’m going to learn to cook.

It's a film about a very troubled marriage. So it felt like the appropriate thing to do

'And he says, "Oh honey, just know what you’re good at, know what you’re not."

'But I do have my moments where I'm like, "I'm going to get this wife thing down!" But he knows my limitations and where I’m a good wife and a good mom.'

The couple, who are parents to Maddox 13, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, twins Knox & Vivienne, 6, and Pax, 11, finally fulfilled their children's wish of getting married this year.

However their honeymoon was not a traditional one, with the couple spending it filming in Malta.

'I’m sure I had moments with the actor, and I’m sure he had many moments with the director,' the Maleficent star said, laughing about tension on set.

'10 years on we’ve learned a lot more about each other, and it's a film about a very troubled marriage. So it felt like the appropriate thing to do on our honeymoon.'

The couple were recently pictured having what was described as a 'heated exchange' on their hotel balcony.

'When Brad threw up his arms, you could see the frustration on his face. He was clearly exasperated with her,' an eyewitness told In Touch.

'They kept talking over each other and putting their hands up in anger. They were upset but getting nowhere. Angie looked like she was on the verge of tears.'


However Angelina revealed that marriage has changed things in a positive way, explaining:

'It was in just a feeling of that security and comfort that we always had, but recommitting after 10 years of being together.

'And we were fortunate enough to be in that unusual situation where we got married with our children, and they were a part of the ceremony and they wrote some of the vows.

'So it was all of us agreeing to be together and to commit to this life together — not because we had to, not because anything was missing in our lives, but because we were absolutely sure. We felt that much of a family. It was really lovely, it was a lovely day.'
