'It was probably not the wisest way to spend a honeymoon,' he admitted in the Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin shot spread, of filming By the Sea, a story of a disintegrating marriage, after tying the knot with Angelina in August 2014.
'But then again, fighting to make something together... what better metaphor for marriage?' Brad added of the film - starring, directed and written by wife Angelina.
Brad also said that working on the movie together gave him and Angelina more time with their six children, Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, nine, and seven-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

He explained: 'At the end of the day, we get to be parents, greeting our lovely, crazy children and talking about their day, making sure they brush their teeth.'
Angelina and Brad play an unhappy couple in By The Sea, and although Angelina recently admitted their marriage isn't perfect, she insisted they are nothing like their on-screen counterparts.
'Brad and I have our issues, but if the characters were even remotely close to our problems, we couldn't have made the film,' she explained to Vogue.

'This is the only film I've done that is completely based on my own crazy mind,' Angelina revealed, of the project.
'As artists we wanted something that took us out of our comfort zones. Just being raw actors. It's not the safest idea. But life is short.' 
Angelina is next signed on to star in action flick Salt 2 as well as Maleficent 2, and voices a character for the upcoming Kung Fu Panda 3.
