Angelina Jolie On Life With Brad: 'We're Mommy & Daddy In Our Pajamas'

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may be one of the world’s most famous couples, but the “Salt” star says life at home is far from the pair’s red carpet glamour.

“We’re very homebound. We’re very much Mommy and Daddy in our pajamas,” she told Parade.

Angelina added that she and Brad make sure to keep their busy schedules from separating them for long.

“We are not separated for more than three days, ever,” she said. “He takes the kids to school; he visits me on set with the kids. I’m home for dinner, or I’m there for breakfast. We’re together all the time.”

Asked by Parade if the couple stayed together for their six children, Angelina said her relationship with Brad was still strong.

“Brad and I love being together,” she said. “We always find that special time… If Brad and I are strong and happy, then our kids have happy parents, and that’s the best thing we can give them.”

The once-wild actress also discussed her tumultuous early years in Hollywood.

“I went through a period when I felt my film characters were having more fun than I was. It might partly explain why I ended up tattooed or doing certain extreme things in my life,” she explained.

But now, Angelina told the mag, she no longer feels “closed in.”

“I unlocked my cage years ago. I want my children to have that freedom. I want that for other people, too,” she said.

Angelina’s Parade cover story appears in the mag’s July 11 issue; “Salt” is in theaters on July 23.
