Jolie was pregnant with Pitt's child within a year, although the pair waited to marry until August 2014. Turns out: kind of.

The Oscar victor, 42, recently opened up to The Hollywood Reporter's podcast, Awards Chatter, about the "heaviness" that gripped her while filming the drama, which she wrote and directed.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter's podcast Awards Chatter, she said: 'We had met working together and we worked together well.I wanted us to do some serious work together.I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate.

"In some ways it was, and in some ways we learned some things", Jolie continued.

"Brad is really looking forward to his birthday this year as he's going to have all the kids with him", an insider revealed to Hollywood Life on December 4. But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on and it wasn't because of the film. "Brad's children mean everything to him, and he hates not being there every day with them-but he's seeing a lot more of the kids now that they're living close by, and he feels like he's finally able to make up for lost time".

Jolie and Pitt's marriage wasn't the only life event that influenced By the Sea, however. "I'll walk and get that double-take from girls and hear the whispering that follows". I thought it would be a great way for us to communicate.

The films ends with both couples having patched up their relationships.


Filming the hard relationship drama gave the actors the chance to "communicate something" to one another, says Jolie.

"My life has been..." But things start to pick up when they develop a voyeuristic interest in the hot young couple in the suite next door. So that wasn't a particular time when I wrote it.I had my mastectomy right before I had Unbroken.

She said: 'Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together. "I'm not sure", she added.

'A piece of art can be something that's healing or something that's hard.

"By the Sea obviously didn't save the marriage, but she thinks it still allowed them to communicate something that needed to be communicated to each other".

She also addressed how she struggled with various complications while they were together. I still wasn't feeling a complete and whole as a person.

"I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate", Jolie said. "I wanted to see if I could get the job on my own and not be hired for a name".
