Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie crossed paths for the first time while filming for Mr. Mrs. Smith in 2003.
Back in 2003, the famous actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie first met on the set of their movie “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”. Their undeniable chemistry sparked rumors of a romance between them, and soon they became the talk of the town. At that time, Jolie was raising her child alone, while Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. However, after Pitt’s divorce from Aniston in 2005, he and Jolie officially announced their relationship. Interestingly, Jolie revealed that their connection didn’t begin with an instant attraction but instead grew into a strong bond and friendship based on their work together. The couple went on to have six children and were considered one of the most iconic couples in the entertainment industry. However, as time went by, they faced difficulties, which ultimately led to their separation and divorce in 2016.
Angelina Jolie gave insights about her family life with Brad Pitt during an interview with Parade magazine back in 2018. The couple follows a distinct parenting system where they always prioritize their six children by managing their work schedules and taking turns in caring for them. Whenever one of them is occupied with work, the other is always present for their children’s needs. Jolie also mentioned that their lifestyle is very basic and domestic. In 2012, Pitt disclosed that their children kept pushing them to get engaged. Although he acknowledged their wish, it wasn’t until April of that year when the couple finally confirmed their engagement.
While on their honeymoon in Malta, celebrity couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had a unique experience by writing and filming their own movie, called “By the Sea”. The plot was centered around a married couple’s attraction to their neighbors, and it was the first time the couple had acted together since “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” in 2005. Although the film was created purely for fun, Jolie’s life took a serious turn when she had her ovaries removed in March of 2015. After receiving a blood test that detected early signs of cancer, Jolie chose to have her fallopian tubes and ovaries removed to reduce her chances of developing cancer. Fortunately, the tumor results were negative, but Jolie’s health scare brought her and Pitt closer together as they realized what was truly important in life. They made a public appearance together at the premiere of “By the Sea” on November 5, 2015.
The Los Angeles premiere of “By the Sea” caused quite a commotion when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie showed up hand in hand, looking absolutely stunning. Pitt wore a sleek black suit while Jolie donned a white strapless dress adorned with jewels. However, their seemingly perfect relationship came to an end on September 20, 2016, when Jolie filed for divorce due to irreconcilable differences. In the filing, Jolie requested physical custody of their six children but allowed Pitt visitation privileges without the request for spousal or child support. Out of respect for the family’s privacy, Jolie’s representative appealed to the public for discretion during this challenging time. Pitt expressed his sorrow over the separation and made it clear that his top priority was the well-being of their children. As of April 13, 2019, their separation became official, and both Pitt and Jolie are now legally single.
