OK, so she's not making out with her brother or wearing vials of blood around her neck these days, but Angelina Jolie thinks monogamy ain't all it's cracked up to be. "I doubt that fidelity is absolutely essential for a relationship. It's worse to leave your partner and talk badly about him afterwards," the mom of six tells Das Neue, as quoted in the Telegraph.

"Neither Brad nor I have ever claimed that living together means to be chained together. We make sure that we never restrict each other," Jolie says. And as for peace on the homefront: "The sparks fly at home if the nice Brad fails to see that he's wrong and reacts in a defiant way. Then I can get so angry that I tear his shirt."
