“Unraveling of a Hollywood Love Story: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Journey Through Pictures as the Actress Calls for Divorce”

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were once regarded as one of the most unbreakable couples in Hollywood. However, to everyone’s surprise, Jolie has filed for a divorce from Pitt after just two years of marriage. It is worth taking a trip down memory lane and revisiting their 12-year-long love story, which started when they met on the sets of “Mr. Mrs. Smith.” The couple faced backlash for their relationship since Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston at the time. Despite the odds, they stayed together and went on to become parents to six children.

It’s over for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who have decided to go their separate ways 12 years after they first met while filming Mr. Mrs. Smith in 2005.

Brad Pitt was still married to his first wife Jennifer Aniston when he began working with Angelina Jolie on the 2004 movie Mr. Mrs. Smith, but rumours of a possible romance between them still circulated. In January 2005, after four and a half years of marriage, Brad and Jennifer announced their split in a joint statement, citing “much thoughtful consideration.” Despite their separation, they remained committed to being caring friends with great love and admiration for each other. Jennifer later filed for divorce from Brad in March of that same year, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Meanwhile, rumours of a relationship between Brad and Angelina continued to grow. Although they didn’t publicly address the rumours at the time, in April 2005, their relationship was confirmed when they were photographed on holiday in Kenya with Angelina’s son Maddox. While Angelina admitted that she and Brad “got on great,” she denied having a relationship with him during filming, telling Marie Claire that she couldn’t forgive herself for being intimate with a married man, given her own experience with her father cheating on her mother.

Their love is out in the open: The couple’s romantic relationship was revealed in April 2005, just a couple of months prior to the release of Mr. Mrs. Smith.

In July 2005, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie participated in a photo shoot for W magazine titled ‘Domestic Bliss’. The pictures portrayed them as a happy couple with children, and Jennifer Aniston was reportedly devastated upon seeing them. A few months later, Angelina adopted her second child, Zahara, from Ethiopia. In September, during an interview with Vanity Fair, Jennifer criticized Brad for lacking a “sensitivity chip” and brainstorming the photoshoot with Angelina. She also expressed her dislike of the images taken of them in Kenya. Despite this, she joked that “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” In October 2005, Brad and Jennifer’s divorce was finalized.

In January 2006, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced that they were expecting their first child together, while also filing paperwork to adopt Maddox and Zahara. The couple welcomed their first biological child, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, in May 2006 in Swakopmund, Namibia. They sold the first pictures of their baby to People and Hello! magazines, donating all of the proceeds which amounted to over $7 million to charity. In December 2006, while discussing their work on Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Angelina revealed that she and Brad found joy in working together and became a pair. Two years later, Jennifer Aniston criticized Angelina for her comments. In March 2007, Angelina adopted Pax Thien, a three-year-old from Vietnam, and Brad adopted him the following February.

A group of eight: Angelina made an announcement at the Cannes Film Festival back in 2008 (as shown in the picture) that she was pregnant with twins, along with Brad.

In May 2008, Angelina Jolie confirmed at the Cannes Film Festival that she was pregnant with twins with her partner, Brad Pitt. The couple welcomed their son Knox Leon and daughter Vivienne Marcheline in July 2008 in Nice, France. They donated the $14 million they received for selling the photos of the twins to People and Hello! magazine to charity. In October and December of 2008, both Angelina and Brad admitted that they fell in love while working on Mr. and Mrs. Smith despite initially denying it when Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston. In a 2011 interview with Parade magazine, Brad said that he was not living an interesting life during his marriage to Jennifer and that he is now a satisfied man with Angelina as his partner. He also praised her as a great mother to their six children and a supportive partner in their careers.

Brad and Angelina, known for their generosity, decided to share the first pictures of their twins for a reported $14 million. The couple selflessly donated the money to charity, just as they had done previously after their daughter Shiloh was born.

It’s no shock that in 2008, the couple (as seen in the photo from 2009) finally admitted to having developed romantic feelings for each other while working on the movie Mr. Mrs. Smith.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were crazy about each other in 2011, when Brad declared that he was finally a satisfied man with Angelina. During that year’s Cannes Film Festival, the couple was pictured together. In December 2011 and January 2012, Brad and Angelina disclosed in separate interviews that their children were encouraging them to get married. Though they had initially planned to wait until gay marriage was legal before tying the knot, they admitted there was much pressure from their kids. Angelina shared that her kids asked her one day, and when she asked them if it was because they wanted a big cake, they replied that they saw people getting married in movies and wanted happily ever after too. She explained to them that their commitment when they decided to start a family was the most significant commitment possible because having six children meant being committed. Brad added that marriage seemed to mean more and more to their children, and although they had made a declaration not to get married until everyone could, they might not be able to hold out. In April 2012, the couple finally revealed their engagement, confirming that it was a promise for their future, and their children were happy about it. However, Brad’s spokesperson stated that no date had been set yet.

Encouraging them forward: In February 2012, this couple shared that their offspring had been eagerly pushing for them to tie the knot.

In April 2012, the couple, who had previously planned to wait until gay marriage was legalized before tying the knot, announced their engagement. The next year, in February 2013, Angelina underwent a double mastectomy in secret after discovering she had a high risk of developing breast and ovarian cancers due to the BRCA-1 gene. She spoke about her surgery in May 2013, praising Brad for his unwavering support during the difficult time. Brad stayed by her side throughout the surgeries, finding moments to share laughter amidst the seriousness of the situation. Angelina was grateful for his presence and noted that it brought them closer as a family. In the following month, Brad spoke highly of Angelina’s bold and courageous personality, stating that she was still as attractive as ever.

In June 2013, Brad was captured alongside Angelina, who had recently written a courageous op-ed about her experience undergoing a double mastectomy.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie showcased their sweet affection towards each other during the 2014 Oscars, proving that they were deeply in love.

In May 2014, our lovely family, including Pax, Brad, Zahara, Knox, Shiloh and Maddox, all attended the premiere of Angelina’s movie Maleficent to show our support. A couple of months later, in July 2014, it was announced that Brad and Angelina would be collaborating on a new movie called By The Sea, marking their first on-screen reunion since Mr. Mrs. Smith. Not only was Angelina directing the film, but she also wrote the screenplay and starred alongside Brad as a married couple whose relationship was on the rocks.

The duo surprised everyone in August 2014 when they got secretly married at their French estate Chateau Miraval, with Angelina wearing a unique dress designed with the help of her children and a cake made by their son Pax. We then enjoyed a short family honeymoon in Nice before heading to Malta to start filming By The Sea.

However, in November 2014, the paparazzi caught Brad and Angelina in what appeared to be an intense argument on their hotel balcony in Sydney, Australia. Despite this small hiccup, our family remained united, and we couldn’t wait to see the finished movie project that brought Brad and Angelina together once again.

Brad and Angelina exchanged vows in a private event held at Chateau Miraval in France during the month of August in 2014.

Are there cracks in the relationship? In November 2014, the couple was caught in what seemed like a heated argument on their hotel balcony during their trip to Sydney, Australia. The following year, in March, Angelina revealed in her second op-ed for New York Times that she had her fallopian tubes and ovaries removed. She added that during the ordeal, she called Brad who immediately flew to her side. The release of their movie, By The Sea, in November 2015 was met with negative reviews and failed to make up its budget at the box office. In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Angelina admitted that she and Brad have their fair share of fights and problems like any other couple. However, the film’s message was about sticking together through tough times.

It’s amazing how things can change in just 10 months. The last time this couple walked the red carpet together was during AFI Fest where they were promoting their movie, By The Sea.

Could the script have mirrored reality? Angelina Jolie wrote and directed a film that showcased a couple struggling through their marriage.

The actress shared that she and Brad are just like any other couple, facing their own fights and problems. The film they starred in was a way for them to send a message to each other, assuring that they will stick together through whatever challenges come their way. They were last seen together in July 2016, taking their kids out for brunch and shopping to celebrate their eighth birthday. However, in September of the same year, Angelina filed for divorce and requested sole physical custody of their six children. Brad expressed sadness about the situation and emphasized the importance of their children’s well-being. Angelina’s lawyer stated that the divorce was filed for the sake of the family’s health, while her manager added that she will always prioritize her children’s best interests.

Last snapshot: Brad and Angelina were spotted together for the final time just before declaring their divorce in July. They brought Knox and Vivienne to commemorate their eighth birthday.

Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce and is asking for full physical custody of their six children, while allowing Brad Pitt to have visitation rights. The couple was pictured together with their children Maddox and Zahara in 2014.
