Angelina Jolie wrote, directed, produced and stars in "By the Sea," a film released in theaters in Germany on December 10. Here's a look back at the most memorable events of her high-profile career.
The film "By the Sea" is about an unhappily married couple in crisis. Co-starring with Angelina Jolie is her real-life husband Brad Pitt.
Pitt and Jolie were reported to have found each other on the set of another movie about a married couple, "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" (2005). In this movie, the husband and wife realize they are both undercover assassins hired by competing agencies to kill each other.
The dream couple
Shortly afterwards, the two stars made their relation public, had children and adopted even more. They held a lavish wedding ceremony in France a few years later.
The Brangelina brand keeps fascinating the public. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are without a doubt modern Hollywood's dream couple. Just like Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy ,or Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton earlier, the ups and downs of their relationship keeps the tabloids busy.
Fans will therefore be curious to see the couple dealing with a crisis. Even if "By the Sea" is a fictional story, Angelina Jolie revealed that the most personal scenes were inspired by her 10-year relationship with Brad Pitt.
