Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt might seem like the perfect couple now (or as close to perfect as any human couple can be anyway), but it wasn’t always so. Before the two found their little slice of heaven in each other and their brood of children, Jolie had all but given up on finding love, the Maleficent actress says in the June issue of Elle. In an interview to go with her stunning cover, Jolie andmits: "I never thought I'd have children, I never thought I'd be in love, I never thought I'd meet the right person."

Angelina Jolie, Maleficent Still
Jolie is about to reinvent the original Disney villain, Maleficent.

Apparently she had a pretty good reason to believe that too.

"Having come from a broken home — you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don't look for them," the A-lister says in a surprisingly candid moment. Despite the fact that Jolie stars in Disney’s upcoming Maleficent and that the 38-year-old actress has just announced that she’s working on a new project with Pitt, a lot of the interview seems to center around their relationship.
