Brad Pitt denied the claims that Angelina Jolie wrecked his marriage with Jennifer Aniston.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were married when he met Angelina Jolie on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. According to several sources, they fell in love while filming the action-comedy film.
That’s why many blamed Jolie when Pitt and Aniston separated. However, Pitt insisted that there was no third party when he parted ways from the Friends alum.
Brad Pitt said Angelina didn’t wreck his marriage with Jennifer
Brad Pitt married two of the most powerful and beautiful women in Hollywood. He married Jennifer Aniston in 2000, but they separated five years later.
Shortly after their split, he started dating Angelina Jolie. Pitt and Jolie were together in 2005 and they welcomed their firstborn Shiloh Jolie-Pitt in 2006.
However, Pitt defended Jolie from those blaming the Maleficent star for ruining his marriage with Aniston. According to the Ad Astra actor, their affair did not interfere with his marriage with Aniston.
“What people don’t understand is that we filmed Mr. & Mrs. Smith for a year,” Pitt said, as quoted by Hindustan Times.
“We were still filming after Jen (Aniston) and I split up. Even then, it doesn’t mean that there was some kind of dastardly affair. There wasn’t.”
Pitt and Jolie waited for almost a decade before they tied the knot. They married in 2014, but it only lasted for two years.
Aniston’s reaction to Pitt and Jolie’s relationship
Jennifer Aniston admitted that when they announced their separation, their statement was true to her knowledge. However, she also did not hide her frustrations when she learned about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s beach photos in Kenya with Maddox.
According to Aniston, she was shocked when she saw the photos. It happened shortly after they announced their split.
Also, The Morning Show star revealed that shortly after Pitt started filming with Jolie, he became emotionally unavailable for her. At the time, Aniston was struggling because her 10-year show, Friends, was ending.
She reached out to Pitt for support, but he was not there for her.
Aniston called Jolie ‘uncool’
Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie shared some details about her relationship with Brad Pitt in her interview with Vogue in 2008. According to the Eternal star, there was some sort of connection between them.
She also admitted that she couldn’t wait to get to work with Pitt. Aniston didn’t like Jolie’s confession because he was still married to her at the time.
“There was stuff printed that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening,” Aniston said.
“I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she couldn’t wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool.”
