TORONTO — Angelina Jolie has opened up about life with Brad Pitt, admitting they “drive each other beautifully crazy.”

In an interview with Elle, the 38-year-old actress said she and Pitt are “more interested in each other” now than ever before.

“You get together and you’re two individuals and you feel inspired by each other, you challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy,” said Jolie.

“After all these years, we have history — and when you have history with somebody, you’re friends in such a very real, deep way that there’s such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together.”

Jolie and Pitt have been together since 2005, after working together on the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Despite marriages to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton and a relationship with model-actress Jenny Shimizu, Jolie said of Pitt: “I never thought I’d be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person.”

Jolie appears in the new movie Maleficent with three of her six children — Vivienne, Pax and Zahara.

“Brad and I made the decision that we wouldn’t keep them from sets and the fun of making movies,” she told Elle, “but we wouldn’t [glorify it either] — we wouldn’t make it a good thing or a bad thing.”

Jolie said she hopes her children choose a different career.
