How did Hollywood's most famous hookup happen? And has Brad Pitt's babymomma ever met his ex? In the January Vogue, on newsstands Friday, Angelina Jolie tackles those hot topics and more. Some excerpts published in USA Today:

Re: Brad: "He's somebody I admire based on the way he lives his life. And that's why I'm with him."

Re: the onset of their on-set romance: "A few months [into filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith] I realized, god, I can't wait to get to work. Whether it was shooting a scene or... gun practice or dance class or doing stunts, anything we had to do with each other, we found a lot of joy in it."

Re: Jennifer Aniston, Jolie says the two ladies have never had "a real sit-down-and-talk kind of meeting," and have only said hello in passing. To ever have a heart-to-heart, Jolie says, "would be [Jen's] decision, and I would welcome it." As would Barbara Walters and the cameras from 20/20.
