Fifteen years ago, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made everyone fell in love when they did the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
The film now celebrates its 15th anniversary. So, take a look back where the so-called love affair of Brangelina started and eventually ended. Mr. & Mrs. Smith didn’t only make headlines for earning millions of dollars in the box office but also for featuring two of the hottest stars in Hollywood.
But more than the story and the artists, it also caused the biggest rift in the industry. Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie.
The beginning of Brangelina’s love story
The most prominent love triangle in the business might have involved the biggest stars of the 21st Century’s pop culture, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, and Angelina Jolie.
When the 56-year-old actor did the action/romance film in 2005, he was still married to the Friends alum. As his love story with the famed humanitarian became from reel to real, he left his first wife right there and then.
Also known as Angie, she repeatedly denied that her then-husband cheated on the 51-year-old actress, Hollywood Life noted. However, after the finalization of his first divorce, the 56-year-old actor made his relationship with Angie public.
The former couple then went to adopt three kids, Maddox, 18, Zahara, 15, and Pax, 16. They then first had their biological child, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 14, in 2006, followed by a set of twins, Vivienne and Knox, 11, in 2008.
After nine years of being together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie finally decided to tie the knot at their Château Miraval estate in Correns, France. She then changed her surname from Jolie to Jolie Pitt.
Sadly, after just two years of marriage, they opted for divorce.
