Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt refuse to talk about politics

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt refuse to discuss their opposing political views over dinner because they don't want to "go off on each other" during family time moments.

The superstar couple maintain a busy schedule, filming movies and caring for six children, so Pitt and Jolie steer clear of confrontational topical issues like the death penalty to keep their household drama-free.

During an interview with news show Nightline, which aired on Monday (05Dec11), Jolie explains, "I won't say whose side anyone is on, but it's the one... thing nobody brings up at dinner because nobody wants us to go off on each other.

"But it's fun. It's a fun debate... You want to be able to have... to respect each other's views and to not be exactly... identical. We have strong views."
