Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are playing house as husband and wife once again - this time for a 60 page magazine spread.

The screen stars, who sparked speculation of a romance after playing married assassins in the movie MR + MRS SMITH, have posed for a range of shots showing both wedded bliss as parents and the darker side of marriage for the July (05) issue of W magazine.

And the publication's creative director, DENNIS FREEDMAN, says bosses loved the photographs so much, they decided to publish an unprecedented 60-page spread, which includes just two pages of text.

Freedman also points out that the spread was Pitt's own idea, explaining, "He approached us back in March with an idea and the idea was really to explore both sides - the dark and the light of an idealised American family.

"I think you take whatever you want from the photos. I think that there is a story and Brad was committed to that story. I think the fact that he did it in spite of the media speculation points out his courage in doing it."

The photographs are set in 1963 - the year Pitt was born and the year US President John F Kennedy was assassination.
