Angelina Jolie finally speaks out about what went wrong between her and Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie has opened about her early life, her career and her relationships.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were a power couple for as long as we can remember. They developed an interest in each other’s life when they were filming Mr and Mrs Smith in 2005 and stayed together until 2016. In the 10 years that they were a couple, it seemed like nothing could tear them apart. After all, they had successfully built an empire selling wine and started a family as well. The world was shocked when Angelina’s camp announced that she had filed for divorce from Brad.
The news came right after Brad had allegedly got into a physical fight with his oldest son, Maddox, on a flight. At the time, sources close to the actress said she feared for the safety of her kids and wanted them to be physically away from the Oscar-winning actor. That was the narrative built around their bitter separation.
Now, new details surrounding their less-than-perfect marriage have emerged. Angelina told The Hollywood Reporter’s podcast, Awards Chatter, that outside factors affected their relationship as well.
The Salt actress said she went through a lot in the 10 years that they were together. Angelina lost her mom, she had a mastectomy and the scare of ovarian cancer for which she underwent a surgery as well. In 2015, she had her fallopian tubes and ovaries removed after the ovarian cancer scare.
She implied that these incidents drove a wedge between them. The struggle was deeply personal for Angelina even though she shared it with the world and in the process, inspired many women. However, she might have struggled privately to find support from her husband.
It’s been a year since they’ve lived separate lives and Angelina has found a different support system. She’s started a new relationship with her father John Voight, who is granddad to her six kids.
The actress said, “Through grandchildren now we’re finding a new relationship and it’s very, very nice. We’ve had some difficulties. Through art is a way we’ve been able to talk. It’s a common language. We don’t really talk politics well.”
