Angelina Jolie insists her relationship with Brad Pitt was a gamble that paid off, despite the odds stacked against two Hollywood superstars maintaining a steady romance. Jolie and Pitt started dating shortly after shooting on Mr. + Mrs. Smith wrapped. Speaking in the upcoming issue of U.S. magazine Marie Claire, Jolie says, "I think we both went on a lot of faith - we really did. "Our family has grown very quickly, and we have a lot of responsibility together, and we acknowledge that we are lucky we turned out be for each other everything we'd hoped. "We could have been very wrong, but every challenge we hit has brought us closer. It has been that kind of relationship."
