After 10 years and six kids together, Angelina Jolie’s life with Brad Pitt wasn’t exactly short on commitment.

But following their marriage last year, the Hollywood actress reveals that being able to call him her husband has taken their relationship to a whole new level.

The superstar pair, who met on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith in 2005, ended years of speculation when they tied the knot in August with a wedding that was truly a family affair.

Their children Maddox and Pax walked Mum down the aisle, while Zahara and Vivienne were flower girls, and Shiloh and Knox were ring bearers. The kids’ drawings even featured on Angelina’s couture veil.

Speaking for the first time about the reasons she and Brad finally fulfilled their long engagement, Angelina explains: “What was lovely about it was that we didn’t feel there was something missing or we needed to get married.

“We felt so complete, and the commitment to children is one that you cannot walk away from, so we already had that commitment.

“It was really that we wanted to re-commit and commit in a deeper way, and we wanted to celebrate the union with our children.”

She adds: “And it does feel different when you say, ‘my husband’ or ‘my wife’. It warms you in a different way and you look at that person a little ­differently.

“As soon as it was all over, we all just changed clothes and hung out. It was just a very happy time. It wasn’t this monumental change – we were just very happy and sure, and it’s quite an extraordinary feeling to be so sure. It gives you peace.”

Peace is something that was in short supply for Angelina, 39, after the death of her beloved mother, actress Marcheline Bertrand.

When she died of cancer in 2007, Angelina reveals it had a devastating effect on her. She lost her passion for acting and realised she would rather be behind the camera instead.

“This is all very personal, but I realised when my mom passed away how much of my acting career was motivated by her desire to be an actress, and how happy I was to show her my films and how excited she was. When she was gone, it wasn’t the same.”

The actress named her six-year-old daughter Vivienne Marcheline after her mum.

And, fearing that she too would become a cancer victim, underwent a double mastectomy in 2013.

Angelina’s Hollywood career has since most definitely been on the up – despite being branded a “minimally talented spoiled brat” in infamous leaked emails last month. She says she now intends to put acting aside and focus on directing.

“I don’t love the spotlight and I like shining a light on other people,” she says. “I still enjoy acting but not like I used to. If it’s an interesting role I would do it.”

Maleficent is the only acting role she’s taken on since directing her first film – the war drama In the Land of Blood and Honey.

Her second directing effort, Unbroken, is out now. It is the epic story of 1936 Olympic track star Lou Zamperini, whose plane was shot down in the Pacific during the Second World War.

He survived on a raft without food for 47 days before washing up on a Japanese island, where he was captured and tortured for two years.

She confides that it was a difficult movie to do.

“The first film I did was intimate and small but this was a new skill,” she says. “Plane crashes, shark attacks, recreating Hitler’s Olympics… it was like five different films, and every day I had to rise to the ­challenge.

“It is the hardest thing I’ve ever done creatively.”

Despite her work as a director and her charity roles often bringing her to the UK, she denies reports she and Brad have been house hunting in England.

“I’ve thought about getting an office there one day but I haven’t even begun to look,” she says. “And no house either. I’d love to, but there’s nothing planned at the moment.”

Now happily married, ironically she has just finished directing her third film, By the Sea, in which she and Brad star together as a couple heading for divorce.

She says of the script, which she wrote: “What’s interesting is that we trust each other so much and we’re in such a good place that we’re able to explore the darker side of marriage.”
