Brad Pitt believes Angelina Jolie still has plenty more movie ideas up her sleeve.

Angelina Jolie's career as a filmmaker is "only just getting started" according to her husband Brad Pitt.

The pair met on the set of 2005's Mr. & Mrs. Smith and married in 2014, raising six children together. They clearly make a good team on and off camera, which is why they're back again with By the Sea. This time Angelina is also writer and director, and Brad is sure it won't be the last.

"Let's wait and see," he told Germany's Glamour magazine when asked which direction their careers might take. "But I do believe Angelina's role as filmmaker is only just starting. If she wants to team up with me in the future, I only have one answer for her: yes!"

While By the Sea has been hotly anticipated by the power couple's fans the world over, Brad is actually keen to wind down his career. Now he has a family to look after, he wants to spend more time with them.

"I'm starting already," he said of slowing the pace. "It used to be up to three, now I only make one film a year. Part of it is wanting to see my kids grow up, but I'm also finding the other side of this business more and more attractive. I'd like to do more producing, like I did with 12 Years a Slave and The Big Short - a film about the financial crisis. It gives me the opportunity to go behind the scenes and make sure I tell the story the right way - I take my responsibility very seriously."

While Brad clearly wants to take a step back, he doesn't make a fuss of his celebrity status. Rather than complain about the attention, he's learnt to say "no", calling it the most important word in his vocabulary.
