Hollywood’s hottest couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, know how to keep the romance alive and Jolie recently offered up some evidence of this during a recent interview. With six kids and full-time movie gigs between the two, it is amazing that this couple finds the time for that spark once in a while, never mind keeping it alive on a daily basis, but they do, according to the New York Daily News on July 31.
While Jolie and Pitt were away in separate countries making different movies, it was hand-written love letters that kept them feeling closer than ever. In a world of Skype and emails, a handwritten love letter seems to be from a time so long ago, but Jolie and Pitt have revived those penned declarations of love.
According to People, They were both doing movies that captured a long-gone era in war history. She was making a biopic on about a WW II hero and Pitt was in a movie about a tank crew fighting the Nazis.
Jolie said they decided to be of that time and they would imagine that he was in the European theater and she was in the Pacific theater. The two imagined what it was like back then being away from the ones you loved for such a long period of time.
The only form of communication was the hand-written letter for people of that era at war. Out of these thoughts the Jolie-Pitt love letters were created and the two found they made a special connection.
It sounds as if the couple were role-playing in a fantasy that was set in a long-ago era. Who needs phone-sex when you have this deeply romantic exchange of the written word going on?
Angelina said that the letters let them connect in a very personal way and that Brad was very supportive from a distance. The 39-year-old actress and director was away filming and directing “Unbroken” in Australia and her 50-year-old husband was in London filming “Fury” when the two started swapping hand-penned letters of love.
Jolie’s take on the content of the letters were conveyed by her during the interview. She said:
"We wrote handwritten letters to each other that were very connecting for us, thinking of the people that were separated for months if not years at a time back then."
She admits that writing and receiving the love letters was something she looked forward to and she said she found this “quite romantic in a way.” Apparently there’s something to be said about holding a piece of paper that contains your partner’s energy in every word that was written by hand.
The two met when filming “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” in 2005 and their on-screen chemistry helped make the film a hit. They’ve teamed up for the second time to make “By the Sea,” a movie due out Christmas day. Jolie directed this movie for which she wrote the script. She also stars in it with her husband.
