Jolie has no
plans to marry Pitt

Angelina Jolie has gone public about the start of her relationship with actor Brad Pitt, saying she never wanted to ruin his marriage to actress Jennifer Aniston--but she also has no plans to marry him.

Jolie, 31, said the two stars realized while working together on the film Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2003 and 2004 that they shared a "deep, emotional bond," although Aniston was clearly Pitt's best friend.

"I think we were both the last two people who were looking for a relationship," she told Vogue in an interview in the magazine's January issue.

"Because of the film, we ended up being brought together to do all these crazy things, and I think we found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened."

Jolie said that after shooting the movie she remained "very, very good friends" with Pitt. She did not comment further on the nature of their relationship.

Pitt, 42, and Aniston, 37, broke up in early 2005.

"And then life developed in a way where we could be together and where it felt like something we would do, we should do," she said.

Jolie said she does not plan to marry Pitt but that they are committed to raising their three children.

Jolie adopted her son, Maddox, from Cambodia in 2002, during her marriage to actor Billy Bob Thornton, and a daughter, Zahara, from Ethiopia in 2005. This year she gave birth to a daughter, Shiloh, with Pitt.

"We've both been married before, so it's not marriage that necessarily kept some people together. We are legally bound to our children, not to each other, and I think that's the most important thing," said Jolie, whose new film The Good Shepherd is being released this month.

The actress, who is currently working on the film A Mighty Heart, portraying the wife of murdered U.S. journalist Daniel Pearl, admitted she once lived life too close to the edge. But she said all that changed once she had children.

"I'm committed to life. I think definitely, before my son, I was a little nihilistic," said Jolie. "I'm starting to be able to see being 50 years old with the kids graduating from high school." (Reuters)
