Angelina Jolie feels “different” since marrying Brad Pitt.
The couple met on the set of 2005 movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith and raise six children together. They got engaged in April 2012 and married in secret this August, with Angelina insisting that even though they’ve been together for a long time, things have changed.
“It does feel different. It feels nice to be husband and wife,” she told Vanity Fair magazine.

The couple tied the knot at their chateau in France and their kids were heavily involved in the ceremony. They all had jobs to do: each drew designs on Angelina’s veil and they even helped write their parents’ marriage vows.
“They did not expect us never to fight, but they made us promise to always say, ‘Sorry,’ if we do. So they said, ‘Do you?’ and we said, ‘We do!’” she recalled.
Following their wedding the pair jetted to Malta, where they have been filming a new movie called By the Sea. It’s about a married couple who are having relationship problems, with the subject matter causing some raised eyebrows.
“A few friends asked if we were crazy… [A film about] a married couple going through some difficulties… and I’m directing him,” Angelina giggled.
Over the last few years the 39-year-old star has become as well known for her humanitarian work as she has for her moviemaking.
In June she co-chaired the End Sexual Violence in Conflict (ESVC) global summit in London with then-British foreign secretary William Hague, and it was announced she would be receiving an honorary damehood. Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II presented it to her last month, for services to UK foreign policy and the campaign to end warzone sexual violence.
The star has no plans to stop her activism, saying that she is “open” to pursuing a career in politics, too.
“When you work as a humanitarian, you are conscious that politics have to be considered. Because if you really want to make an extreme change, then you have a responsibility,” she said. “But I honestly don’t know in what role I would be more useful – I am conscious of what I do for a living, and that [could] make it less possible.”0
