Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie appeared to have a great relationship. Twelve years and six kids later, the relationship almost inexplicably exploded, and the world mourns. Just exactly what happened on that private jet flight to Los Angeles from Europe? Here is a look at the beginning and the end.
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were together for five years before Pitt left her for Angelina Jolie. Now both Brad and Angelina admit they fell in love making the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith, while Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston.
Angelina Jolie has inferred that although she fell in love with Brad Pitt while he was married to Jennifer Aniston, she was not physically intimate with him. Citing her father’s infidelity to her mother, Jolie insisted she would never do that to Aniston, according to the Daily Mail.
“To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive.”
Did Jennifer Aniston believe that? Did it matter really considering Jennifer Aniston lost her marriage, while Angelina Jolie ended up with Brad Pitt? One thing remains relevant to the situation though is that among the public, some feel old wounds have been opened. Many still feel a twinge of bitterness toward Angelina Jolie for what she did to Jennifer Aniston.
Angelina Jolie’s past, especially her past with America’s sweetheart Jennifer Aniston, beloved for her role on Friends, has not helped Jolie’s image in this divorce. Jolie’s previous divorce from Billy Bob Thorton and the strange tales from those days have not helped Angelina’s cause either.
Now, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s marriage is crashing and burning before the eyes of the world. Has anyone found the black box in-flight recorder for this doomed flight? Divorce is always difficult, but Brad and Angelina are playing this out before fans who feel they cannot look away.
When Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were together, though, everyone cheered for them too, and when they split, a lot of fans blamed Angelina Jolie directly. It is hard to remember now, just exactly what that felt like, though certainly Jennifer Aniston still remembers.
Brad Pitt has been hurt perhaps more than anyone, except perhaps for the children of the marriage. It was 15-year-old Maddox’s interjection into the grown up talk between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie that was apparently the last straw.
Brad Pitt’s reaction was the rallying cry for Angelina Jolie to file for divorce. In a way, it seems most unfair that a boy can’t express a bit of teenaged angst to his father, without having to feel he broke up his parent’s marriage. It certainly isn’t Maddox’s fault, but he could be construing it that way.
