Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie might just be starring in the greatest love story yet — their relationship!

Of all the heartwarming things we've learned about this lovestruck pair — from their kids' involvement in wedding planning, to how they "drive each other beautifully crazy" — Jolie just revealed our favorite tidbit yet about the future Mr. and Mrs. Pitt.

While she and Pitt were filming separate projects across the world from each other —Jolie was busy directing Unbroken, a film about WWII hero Louis Zamperini, in Australia while Pitt was filming Fury, a movie about a tank crew fighting the Nazis in London — Jolie told Australian magazine TV Week that the two sent handwritten love letters to one another. Cue a major awww.

"He was supportive from a distance, and it was quite romantic in a way," she said of their adorable gestures. "We decided to be of that time, when we could imagine he was in the European theater and I was in the Pacific theater, and we wrote handwritten letters to each other that were very connecting for us, thinking of the people that were separated for months, if not years, at a time back then."

Not a bad idea for keeping things fresh and exciting! Luckily, their next films will bring the long-separated couple closer together: They're set to star together in an intimate character-driven drama, By the Sea, which Jolie is also directing. And that's good news for us, too, because their roles require them to say "I do" on screen!
