At one time, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were the untouchable Hollywood power couple. Then came Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2005). Brad was cast opposite Angelina Jolie. Instantly, rumour mills started churning an affair, which became even more apparent when Pitt and Aniston got divorced in 2005. This was the same year when Mr. and Mrs. Smith released. It's been 14 years since the movie came out (June 10, 2005) and the biggest Hollywood power couple of all time - Brangelina was born! Amidst the now divorce battle between Brad and Angie, here's an interview excerpt of director Doug Liman, who spoke about the infamous sex scene in his film.

While talking to Entertainment Weekly, Doug was asked about speculations that the sex sequence was trimmed because of the rise of Brangelina in the tabloids. To this, Doug revealed that in a conversation with Regency head-honcho Dave Matalon, they discussed the kind of music to be played during the scene. Doug wanted Mondo Bongo, being sung by Joe Strummer, as it was tribal which is sexy for him. A concerned Dave responded that he is worried about the Jennifer Aniston fans.

"Dave said, 'I don’t want to lose that little niche audience of people who are huge Jennifer Aniston fans who are going to hate Angelina Jolie if the sex scene is too sexy,'" Liman revealed to Entertainment Weekly.

Dave had further shared that people might see the sex scene and think that is how Angeline seduced him hence, something sweeter musically over the sequence would be a better choice.

It began wrong; they were gorgeous together; we’ll never know the truth; sad for the kids especially.

Still hoping for the reconciliation of Brad and Angie

The KARMA that bit Brangelina speaks for itself.

Just stop it people. Brad lied to Angie and led her to believe his marriage was over. As for dolly hens blaming Angie. Get over yourselves.

Good grief. Enough already. Pitt and Jolie together were definitely the most beautiful couple. The relationship ran its course.

Disgusted that he and her have no values or morals regarding his marriage to Jen. I would not want my daughter to be treated as such. Not a supporter.
