LONDON, England -- Angelina Jolie says her relationship with longtime partner Brad Pitt is fantastic - except when work gets in the way.
"We have a pretty great relationship," the "Salt" star told British morning show GMTV this week. "If anything, we only go through periods where we're working too much and we say, 'Honey, one of us is working too much,' or we haven't spent enough special time."

The 35-year-old big screen beauty said once they realize their schedules have become too hectic, they take action.
"As soon as we identify it, we just know we have to find some special time and then we reconnect," she continued. "We're never far apart. We raise the kids together. We take turns working. So, we try to stay pretty close."

Raising their six children requires that the Oscar winner fix and pack lunches for their kids, but Angelina explained that she's not about to trade in her acting career for a serving tray and a notepad.
"The problem with my packed lunches is everybody is very, very outspoken about what they want, so it becomes - I often saying, 'I'm not a waitress!'" she said. "We go through so much food, and they're still little. So, I can imagine it's going to get worse."
