Angelina Jolie Says Her Marriage to Brad Pitt Is 'Very, Very Stable'

By Johnny Lopez


They are often dogged by reports that their marriage is in tatters.

But in a rare joint interview, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt proclaim that their decade-long relationship is as strong as ever.

 The A-list stars - who are promoting their upcoming film By the Sea - made the declaration while sitting down with the Today show.

In their new flick, which is Jolie's latest directorial effort, Brad and Angelina play a married couple going through a rough patch in their marriage.

And any fans who may think art is imitating life have another thing coming.

"I'm counting on the audience to know that if it was close to us at all, we could never make this film," the Oscar winning actress tells Tom Brokaw. "It's because we're actually very, very stable and these aren't our issues."

Brad also opens up about Angelina's decision in 2013 to have a double mastectomy after discovering she carried a gene which left her with an 87% chance of getting cancer. Two years later she also had her ovaries removed.

"Whatever's got to be done to keep the family together, and keep the family together as long as possible is going to be done," the 51-year-old says. "This was her charge, no question. It's a scary decision. There's many things that can go wrong and go many different directions."

"You have to just make the choices you make in life," the mother of six continues. "I made the choices I made because I believed they were right for me."

The full interview with Brangelina airs on November 2 on Today.
