Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt star in a movie for the second time in By the Sea, a film about a couple and their troubled marriage, and Angelina has revealed they did, at times, question their decision to work on the project.

The couple first starred together in Mr and Mrs Smith in 2005 and their relationship has been under scrutiny from day one given Brad later divorced his then-wife Jennifer Aniston and went on to have children with, and recently marry, Angelina.

Speaking to the Irish Daily Mirror, Angelina said that they have "fights like any other couple" but that the film showed them they can weather any storm.

Angelina (40) wrote and directed the movie as well as starring opposite Brad (51) who plays her husband.  They filmed the movie in Malta on what was their honeymoon, and they brought their six children along too.

It proved a tough situation, as Angelina explains, "There were a few days when we thought this wasn't the best idea.  There were days when we were really worried and it was hard.

"If we had just married and were just starting a relationship it would have been a disaster, but because we have been together so long we wanted to see how far we could push our relationship and our love and see if we could work together under very intense circumstances and with very complex issues and see if it would make us better."

As it turned out she said they emerged from the experience agreeing that it was the "best honeymoon".
