Angelina Jolie Coos About Brad Pitt to Acting Students

Angelina Jolie has spoken publicly of her fondness for Brad Pitt for the first time since stories circulated about their reported romance.

The couple is said to have fallen in love on the set of new movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and the romance allegedly cost Pitt his marriage to Jennifer Aniston.

Jolie has been keen not to talk about her feelings for Pitt, but she broke her silence on a recent taping of studious chat show Inside The Actor's Studio to talk about how much she enjoyed working with her reported new love in new movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

She said, "We became very competitive, aggressive. Everything escalated into these huge fight scenes. It was great to work with him. He's a great actor. He's also a really great guy.

"I didn't know what to expect in meeting him. He's extremely down to earth, goofy and funny and very good." The in-depth interview will air June 5.

Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Smith director Doug Liman says the alleged couple had immediate chemistry from the first day of filming.

The filmmaker cast Jolie at the last minute to replace Pitt's original co-star Nicole Kidman, who was called back to film additional scenes for The Stepford Wives, and so the pair only met for the first time on the set.

Liman tells Time magazine, "It was going to be rolling the dice. I decided I would take advantage of the awkwardness. They don't really know each other. They're not comfortable. Just sit them down, day one, first thing in the morning, and roll the camera.

"You can see right then and there, they had great chemistry."

Pitt and Jolie have repeatedly denied reports they are dating, following the heart-throb's high-profile split from wife Jennifer Aniston in January, but have been photographed holidaying in Kenya together earlier this month.
