(Newser) – Angelina Jolie opened up to Parade magazine about cutting as a teen, her mother, and those tattoos. But what we really want to know is...how do she and Brad Pitt manage to stay together? Luckily, Parade's Dotson Rader wanted to know, too, and asked.

  • She has a three-day rule: "There's never a period when Brad and I are pulled apart. We are not separated for more than three days, ever."
  • Glamor takes a backseat: "We actually don't go out much. It's funny. We're very homebound. We're very much Mommy and Daddy in our pajamas."

  • She's into family meals: "I'm home for dinner, or I'm there for breakfast. We're together all the time. We plan. Brad and I take time off between films to travel, have big experiences, do things together. That's how we work it out."
  • The kids aren't enough: "The children certainly tie us together, but a relationship won't hold if it's only about the kids. You also must be really interested in each other and have a really, really wonderful, exciting time together. We do."
