For those who love a good wedding, don't look to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to throw one anytime soon. In the October issue of Vanity Fair, Jolie herself sets the record straight, saying there is "no secret wedding" for her and Pitt, her partner of six years, with whom she has half a dozen children. "I'm not pregnant. I'm not adopting at the moment," the 36-year-old tells the magazine.

What she is focused on, however, are new career endeavors -- writing and directing -- both of which she says she fell into by accident.

It was a bout with the flu that led her to write the script that's now her latest film, "In the Land of Blood and Honey," a love story set during the Bosnian Civil War. "I had to be quarantined from the children for two days. I was in the attic of a house in France. I was isolated, pacing. I don't watch TV and I wasn't reading anything. So I started writing," she explains.

And what was Brad's feedback after she gave him the script to read on a trip? Well, it could have been worse. "He called and said, 'You know, honey, it's not that bad.'"

As for becoming the film's director, Jolie says she simply didn't trust handing off the job. "I've never felt more exposed," she says of her screenwriting and directorial endeavors. "My whole career, I've hidden behind other people's words. Now it's me talking. You feel ridiculous when you get something wrong."

Though Jolie jokes about the fact Brad thinks that -- with her new experience under her belt -- she's going to be a "nightmare" when it comes to dealing with directors from now on, she also shares how helpful he's been throughout the project. "He'd come in and say what he liked or what he didn't understand. Like any woman, I would listen to most of it and fight a few things," she admits. "He's been so supportive. But it's hard to separate the person that loves you from the critic, so I don't think hes a fair judge."
