Angelina Jolie insists on honesty

Angelina Jolie insists the key to a successful relationship is honesty.

'The Good Shepherd' actress, whose lover is Brad Pitt, is adamant if you want your love to last you have to be yourself and be completely open with your partner.

When asked if a little deception was necessary in a relationship, she told Britain's OK! magazine: "No, I think the opposite is the only thing that works. I don't want to have to spend my life having to pretend to be someone else, and I don't want the person next to me to have to pretend because we have a long life ahead of us. So you just want to be able to be who you are in every moment, and that is the only way that you'll ever be truly happy."

Angelina met Brad on the set of their action film 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' and the pair began dating shortly after Brad split from his wife Jennifer Aniston in 2005.

They have three children together adopted son Maddox, adopted daughter Zahara and biological daughter Shiloh.
