When Your Partner Is the Only Person Who Gets You

When discussing her recent trip to flood-devastated Pakistan, Angelina Jolie said she'll share the details of the tragedy with partner Brad, and Brad only. "I don't have a lot of friends I talk to. He is really the only person I talk to," she admitted.
