Pitt stood by her decision to have double mastectomy and ovarian removal, she says

Both say that their marriage is as solid as a rock - and that they support each other in whatever they do. Actress Angelina Jolie along with her actor husband Brad Pitt gave a rare joint interview on the Today Show saying that their marriage was "very, very stable" and that Pitt supported Jolie's decision to have a double mastectomy as well as remove her ovaries earlier this year.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie claim to have a rock-solid marriage, quite unlike the one depicted in their new film 'By the Sea.'

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "I knew through the surgeries that he was on my side and that this wasn't something where I was going to feel less of a woman, because my husband wasn't going to let that happen," Jolie said.

The couple have been together for nine years, have six children and married in August of last year. Both star in the new drama, "By the Sea."



Their TV interview was to promote their latest film together. Both Jolie and Pitt met and fell in love while filming "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" in 2005, and have been together ever since.

Jolie made the decision to have a double mastectomy at the age of 37, after learning that she had an 87 percent risk of developing breast cancer due to a defective BRCA1 gene.


Due to her genetic predisposition of same, she also had a 50 percent risk of developing ovarian cancer and elected have an oophorectomy two years later, bringing on early menopause.

Pitt told reporter Tom Brokaw that "Whatever's got to be done to keep the family together, and keep the family together as long as possible is going to be done.


"This was her charge, no question. It's a scary decision. There's many things that can go wrong and go many different directions."

Angelina Jolie was quick to point out that "By the Sea's" story, about an increasingly fractious marriage is not based on their own relationship.



"I'm counting on the audience to know that if it was close to us at all, we could never make this film," Jolie says. "It's because we're actually very, very stable and these aren't our issues."

Set in the Seventies, the film's trailer gives away very little details about the plot. The clip shows plenty of tense moments between Jolie and Pitt, sans dialogue.

"By the Sea" opens later this month.
