Angelina Jolie reveals that she and Brad Pitt exchanged love letters while apart. The couple was recently separated when Jolie directed Unbroken in Australia and Pitt filmed Fury in London. During that time, Jolie tells Australia’s TV Week magazine, Pitt “was supportive from a distance and it was quite romantic in a way.”
She shares, “We decided to be of that time when we could imagine he was in the European theater and I was in the Pacific theater and we wrote hand-written letters to each other that were very connecting for us, thinking of the people that were separated for months if not years at a time back then.”
Jolie also opens up about seeing Louis Zamperini, the World War II hero who inspired Unbroken, shortly before his recent death. “I brought him the film on my laptop in the hospital, and it was amazing seeing someone at the end of their life watching their life unfold again, at the same time their body was shutting down. He wanted me to make the movie to show something hopeful about the strength of the human spirit that can pull us through,” she says.
Jolie adds, “He reminded me to have my surgery in the year that I did, and he reminded me to appreciate every day of my life.”
