It’s not an amateur sex video by any stretch. But real-life married couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have a sex scene in their new movie — directed by Jolie.

How did that go?

“It’s the strangest thing in the world to be lying naked in a bathtub with an iPad that’s showing you the shot outside, while your husband is at the door and you’re directing him to come in and make love to you,” Jolie told Entertainment Weekly of the film “By the Sea.” “(And) in front of a bunch of other men with cameras.”

The 40-year-old mother said: “Love scenes are strange anyway, but when you’re doing a love scene with a person that you really have sex with? The only way to get through it was for us to all talk about the absurdity of it and make sure no one was feeling awkward.”

It was awkward to be director as well.

“I couldn’t get out of the bathtub to get to the monitor because the director is naked,” she said. “We’re artists and want to be free, but Brad — it’s his wife. He was on towel duty. He’d hold the towel over me.”

She was making her first film with Pitt since “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” of a decade ago.
