Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie grace the November 2015 cover of Vanity Fair Italia, looking picture-perfect as always.
The couple posed for a series of intimate portraits by photographer Peter Lindbergh. On the cover, the two are seen holding each other in a loving embrace. Jolie wears a simple silk slip while Pitt channels a scruffy James Dean in a plain white tee. (You can see more photos from the shoot at Fashion Gone Rogue.)
In various recent interviews, the couple opened up about working with each other in their new film, "By the Sea."
Jolie, who directed the movie, recalled the awkwardness of shooting sex scenes with her husband in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
"I’ve done sex scenes before. But this is obviously different," she said. "It’s the strangest thing in the world to be lying naked in a bathtub with an iPad that’s showing you the shot outside, while your husband is at the door and you’re directing him to come in and make love to you."
Meanwhile, Pitt had nothing but wonderful things to say about his "sexy" wife/director.
"The plan was to make something together, with complete autonomy, in the footsteps of Gena [Rowlands] and John [Cassavetes] -- and keep it a family affair. We, by our own admission, were overdue," he told V magazine.
He continued, "If I'm going to work, I want to work with my wife. [It's] surprising how much I enjoy the direction of my wife. She's decisive, incredibly intuitive, knife-sharp, and might I say, sexy at her post. I trust her with my life."
