With the world watching and countless media outlets documenting their every move, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, one of Hollywood's most powerful couples
, has to remain tight-lipped.
It's hard to know who you can trust. The longtime couple, who care for six children, tries their best to lay low despite their high profiles.

"I have very few friends," Pitt told Esquire magazine in a recent interview.
Jolie made a similar statement in 2010 when she was in Pakistan fulfilling her duties as the UN's Goodwill Ambassador.
"I'll talk to my family," said the actress, who shares six children with Pitt. "I talk to Brad [Pitt]; he wants to know as much as he can about these issues and every trip. He's been here as well; he came with me after the earthquake. But I don't know, I don't have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to."
While some might think it's unhealthy for a couple to have few outlets to vent to, Pitt said it works for them.
"I have a handful of close friends and I have my family and I haven't known life to be any happier. I'm making things. I just haven't known life to be any happier," he told Esquire.
Instead, he values his family time more than anything else.
"I always thought that if I wanted to do a family, I wanted to do it big," Pitt explained. "I wanted there to be chaos in the house … there's constant chatter in our house, whether it's giggling or screaming or crying or banging. I love it. I love it. I love it.
"I hate it when they're gone," the "World War Z" actor continued, "I hate it. Maybe it's nice to be in a hotel room for a day – 'Oh, nice, I can finally read a paper.' But then, by the next day, I miss that cacophony, all that life."
Pitt, 49, also told the magazine about his life before Jolie, who he says whipped him into shape.
"I'd get so far and then want to do something else," he said. "I mean, I'm two credits short of graduating college. Two credits. All I had to do was write a paper. What kind of guy is that? That guy scares me – the guy who always leaves a little on his plate."
Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston for four and half years before divorcing in 2005. He met Jolie on the set of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith."
"For a long time I thought I did too much damage – drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter … It was an epiphany – a decision not to squander my opportunities. It was a feeling of get up. Because otherwise, what’s the point?" Pitt said.
