"He has impeccable design taste," Jolie gushed of Pitt's aesthetic eye, which he wielded when he gave the actress a gun-charm necklace in 2008. "Mad, our 6-year-old, draws lots of war scenarios," she explained to EW. "He's all into war and guns. So for Mother's Day he drew a machine gun, and Brad had it made into a necklace, which is really sweet. It's really cute. I think it's really good!"

With their relationship still unconfirmed, the Mr & Mrs. Smith costars played house with a brood of blonde sons for a 2005 W magazine spread, which Pitt created with photographer Steven Klein. "He's the perfect muse," Klein said of Pitt, who designed a foreshadowing image of domestic bliss with Jolie. In 2008, after the birth of their twins, the actor snapped private photos of Jolie and their kids for the magazine. "I love his photography," Jolie said, adding, "He's someone who will really study the camera ... And he's very critical of his own work."
