Outside the Casa del Mar and Shutters hotels in Santa Monica on June 6, the scene resembled a presidential visit crossed with an episode of Paparazzi Gone Wild!: clamoring photographers and a massive security detail – including 12 guards and two armed police officers – patrolling the grounds. Inside, though, the mood was playful, as Mr. and Mrs. Smith stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt promoted their new action-romance. When one reporter – who, like all the attending journalists, was required to sign a "loyalty oath" vowing not to ask personal questions – inquired about the stars' onscreen chemistry, Pitt replied, "Between me and [Smith costar] Vince [Vaughn]? It was palpable. I mean, we knew immediately when we looked into each other's eyes . . . " Pitt (greeting Jolie at the premiere) told Diane Sawyer that his costar is "a good egg" and "a great actress."

"People want answers about what's happening . . . but I need to know what's happening first," Jolie told W West Coast bureau chief Christopher Bagley in the magazine's current issue, which features photographer Steven Klein's explosive pictorial essay of the two stars. And in an interview with Diane Sawyer, which aired on ABC's Primetime Live June 7, Pitt denied that Jolie was a "home wrecker" and implied that their relationship – Pitt's divorce from Jennifer Aniston remains unfinalized – has yet to be defined. Asked if he and his costar are now embarking on a romance, he said, "There's a lot still to, I guess, put into place . . . Listen, I don't know what the future is just yet." On the subject of Aniston, he was more direct, telling Sawyer that their split "doesn't mean you lose the love," though he admitted that "it's difficult now as we determine what the next juncture is." Starring as domestic assassins in Smith, Jolie told reporters, "It is all a metaphor for marriages."

But if Mr. and Mrs. Smith have remained cagey, others are more forthcoming about their chemistry, which audiences can finally judge for themselves in the film. "Their onscreen chemistry is 100 percent them," says Smith director Doug Liman. The sparks were evident from the first day of shooting in winter 2004, says Liman, who notes that the pair had no prior rehearsals or meetings. "What you see in the movie is Brad and Angie's first moments together," he says of the film's opening sequence, set in a marriage counselor's office. "Onscreen they just immediately clicked." "We have the potential to end poverty in our time," Pitt told Sawyer (together in Africa in May). "What is more exciting than that?" Photo by: CAROLINE BORGE / ABC NEWSUntil the Smith premiere, off-screen the duo had avoided being photographed together ever since they were spotted beachcombing in Kenya with Jolie's 3-year-old son Maddox in April. Pitt recently wrapped the Morocco shoot for his upcoming drama Babel; Jolie returned to Kenya in late May on a humanitarian mission and has since been in New York City and Los Angeles on Smith promotional duty. So what's next for the pair? Pitt told Sawyer he has already entered a "new chapter," calling it "a really interesting time – it's a shake-up year . . . I make my choices and I live with those. I like that. My mistakes are my mistakes. My wins are my wins – that I can live with."
