Back in 2003, two major Hollywood actors, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, first met on the set of the action-comedy film “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”. The pair quickly became one of the most talked-about couples in the industry. At the time, Jolie was a single mother, while Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston, although they later split in 2005. According to Jolie, their relationship did not start as an immediate attraction, but rather it evolved into a strong partnership and friendship that grew because of their work together. Over the years, the couple shared six children and seemed to be inseparable until they faced difficult times, which ultimately led to their divorce in 2016.

In an interview with Parade back in 2018, Angelina Jolie shared that she and Brad Pitt have a system in place to ensure that one of them is always available for their six children. They avoid working on projects simultaneously, and Pitt often takes the kids to school while Jolie visits the set with them. They prioritize being together as a family and plan their schedules accordingly. Jolie emphasized that they lead a very domestic life. In 2012, Pitt revealed on CBS News that their children were pressuring them to get engaged. He acknowledged that it was important to the kids and that they had questions about why their parents weren’t married like their friends’ parents. Eventually, in April of that year, Jolie and Pitt confirmed their engagement.

While enjoying their honeymoon in Malta, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie decided to create a unique experience by filming “By the Sea,” a movie about a married couple who develop a sexual attraction towards their neighbors. This was the first time the couple had acted together since “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” in 2005. The film was a casual, independent venture that Jolie wrote and directed herself, purely for fun. However, Jolie’s life took a serious turn when she had her ovaries removed in March 2015 to reduce her risk of cancer after receiving a blood test that detected early signs. Although the tumor results were negative, Jolie opted for surgery to remove her fallopian tubes and ovaries to decrease her chances of developing cancer. Jolie revealed that when she told Pitt about her test results, he immediately rushed to be with her. Moments like these helped them realize what is essential in life. On November 5, 2015, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made an appearance together at the premiere of “By the Sea.”

During the premiere of their film “By the Sea” in Los Angeles, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made a dazzling entrance hand in hand. The couple looked stunning, with Pitt wearing a sharp black suit and Jolie donning a white strapless dress adorned with jewels. However, their seemingly flawless relationship came to a halt on September 20, 2016, when Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt due to irreconcilable differences. She requested physical custody of their six children, but granted Pitt visitation rights without asking for child or spousal support. Jolie’s attorney appealed for privacy during this trying time in a statement to PEOPLE. While Pitt expressed sadness over the divorce, he made it clear that the well-being of their children was his top priority. Finally, on April 13, 2019, Pitt and Jolie officially became legally single after their separation.
