Angelina Jolie: Working With Brad Pitt on 'By the Sea' "Feels a Little Daunting"

The A-list couple have not shared screen time since 2005's 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith'

Angelina Jolie is basking in the warm critical glow for Unbroken, but she is already looking ahead to her next project as a filmmaker, writer and actress, By the Sea, which will also star her husband, Brad Pitt

"It feels a little daunting," said Jolie on the prospect of working with Pitt, in an interview with Radio Times released Tuesday. "We haven't worked together for 10 years. But all the reasons why people say we should be scared of it, we feel that's exactly why we have to do this, because we can. So we're going to go boldly."

However, Jolie isn't too worried about Pitt's ability as an actor. "He's a pretty strong actor! It's going to be interesting. He's a really great artist, such an interesting artist, and of course he's the man I love, so I think we're going to have a great time," she said.  

Elsewhere in the interview, Jolie touched on her and Pitt's penchant for tattoos, but she revealed that her husband wasn't too keen on their six children getting them.

"They're already asking me about tattoos," Jolie told Radio Times. "How do I say no? It's especially hard for dads and girls. For some reason, men get a little more sensitive when the daughter gets a tattoo. And Brad thinks the girls can do no wrong. He's mush in their hands!"

Jolie also revealed how she and Pitt would approach the prospect of any of their children wanting to become actors. "We've always said if they want to act, we won't let them only act, because it's not enough. They'll have to find a real job at the same time. But I'm hoping that when they see all the other things in the world, they'll be inspired to be writers, politicians, activists."

"They're very individual people. So I imagine they're not going to follow their mom and dad," she said.
