“I never thought I’d have children, I never thought I’d be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person,” Jolie tells Elle magazine in its June issue about fiancé Brad Pitt. “Having come from a broken home you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you don’t look for them.”
Today, however, the actress and longtime human-rights activist, 38, says that she and Pitt “drive each other beautifully crazy.”
That “history” and “deep love” mean one thing for the couple: a road to marriage.
Speaking with French newspaper Le Parisien, the actress opened up about their plans to eventually head down the aisle.
“We’re still engaged. We’re still thinking about it,” she said. “We plan to do it at some point.”
