In 2003, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, two highly recognized Hollywood actors, crossed paths on the set of the action-comedy film “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”. Their relationship quickly became a hot topic in the industry, as Jolie was a single mother and Pitt was still committed to Jennifer Aniston, who they eventually split with in 2005. While Jolie claimed that their bond did not start with love at first sight, it rather grew into a strong partnership and friendship through their work together. The couple spent several years together and raised six children before facing tough times that led to their divorce in 2016.

During a Parade interview in 2018, Angelina Jolie revealed that she and Brad Pitt had established a system to ensure that one of them was always present for their six children. They made a conscious effort to avoid overlapping projects, with Pitt often taking the children to school while Jolie visited them on set. Family time was a priority for them, and they adjusted their schedules accordingly. Jolie emphasized that they led a very domestic life. In 2012, Pitt disclosed during a CBS News interview that their children had been pressuring them to get engaged. He recognized that it mattered to the kids and that they were curious as to why their parents weren’t married like the parents of their friends. Consequently, in April of that year, Jolie and Pitt announced their engagement.

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

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were a sight to behold during the premiere of their movie “By the Sea” in Los Angeles as they walked hand in hand, dressed to impress. Unfortunately, their picture-perfect relationship hit a snag on September 20, 2016, when Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt citing irreconcilable differences. She requested physical custody of their six children but allowed Pitt visitation rights without seeking child or spousal support. Jolie’s attorney pleaded for privacy during this difficult time, while Pitt expressed sadness over the divorce and emphasized that his children’s welfare was of utmost importance. Finally, on April 13, 2019, the couple became legally single after their separation was finalized.
