The two star in the new movie By the Sea as a troubled married couple. Directed and written by Jolie Pitt, the movie was their first onscreen collaboration in 10 years, and she says working together strengthened their relationship. “It strengthens a relationship if you can pass those big fights and those big things where you really come head-to-head.”
