They have a solid support system
Angelina revealed during the interview, that Brad was all for her decision for her double macstectomy and ovary removal surgeries, saying, “I knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that this wasn’t something where I was going to feel less of a woman, because my husband wasn’t going to let that happen.” When she was down with chicken pox for the Los Angeles premiere for her film Unbroken in December 2014, Brad and the rest of the family, including his parents, filled in for her on the red carpet.
They keep the romance alive
The couple keep busy schedules, as filming takes them on opposite ends of the world at times. In an interview with Australia’s TV week, Angelina revealed the couple sent handwritten love letters to one another, that brought them even closer. How sweet!
In a separate interview with Extra, Angelina said that the couple work hard at their relationship, and “never take anything for granted,” when asked what kept them going after almost 10 years.
Family time’s important
They’re two of the world’s biggest stars, but at home, they’re simply Mom and Dad to their six children. The couple are extremely committed to their children and family, and they also make it a point to spend time with the kids despite their busy schedules, especially during the holidays. In fact, the close-knit family does almost everything together, including acting alongside one another (Vivienne Marcheline played a young Aurora in Maleficent where Angelina played the lead character, and Pax camo-ed as a zombie in Brad’s movie World War Z), as well as playing important roles in Angelina and Brad’s wedding in 2014 in Correns, France.
