Before Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie became Hollywood hottest item, Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston. The mushy couple dated for a few years before they tied the knot in July 2000. The Friends alum and the Fight Club star were married for five years before they parted ways. Brad moved on with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star eventually. With rumours speculating that the romance sparked on the sets of the comedy-thriller, Angelina revealed in an interview a few years after the film's release that she wasn't looking for a partner at the time. 

Jolie spoke to Vogue in 2007 where opened up about how her relationship with Brad came into being. The actress at the time confessed Brad came as a surprise in her life. "I think we were both the last two people who were looking for a relationship. I certainly wasn’t. I was quite content to be a single mom with Mad," referring to Maddox. 

"And I didn’t know much about exactly where Brad was in his personal life. But it was clear he was with his best friend, someone he loves and respects. And so we were both living, I suppose, very full lives," she told the international magazine. The actress also revealed that during the filming of the movie, she would look forward to heading to the sets and working with Brad. "Because of the film we ended up being brought together to do all these crazy things, and I think we found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened. I think a few months in I realised, God, I can’t wait to get to work. Whether it was shooting a scene or arguing about a scene or gun practice or dance class or doing stunts—anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. We just became kind of a pair," Angelina explained. 

The actress added that it was not until the end of the shoot that the two stars realised there was more in store than their had previously imagined. "And it took until, really, the end of the shoot for us, I think, to realise that it might mean something more than we’d earlier allowed ourselves to believe. And both knowing that the reality of that was a big thing, something that was going to take a lot of serious consideration," she said. 

Still on the page of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Brad told Rolling Stones in an interview that he and Angelina had not watched the movie together, well at least until 2008. "Can you watch that and have happy memories?" the interviewer asked. To which Brad replied, "No, we've never seen it. I just mean because, you know ... six kids. Because I fell in love."

But in 2014, Angelina revealed that the Jolie-Pitt children watched the movie and loved it. She told E! News that the children found the idea of their parents fighting on-screen "very funny." "I mean, our kids did watch—finally—Mr. and Mrs. for one of the first times like last year, and they thought it was the funniest they'd ever. Of course, seeing your own parents try to kill each other is … for a child, it's like watching your parents play fight. It was very funny for them," she said. 

Where do Brad and Angelina stand today? 

The couple split in 2016 with their divorce still underway. However, a source recently told Entertainment Tonight that the former flames are finally in a place where they want to co-parent their six children -- Maddox, 18; Pax, 16; Zahara, 15; Shiloh, 14; and twins Vivienne and Knox, 11. "Brad and Angelina have come a very long way and they're finally in a place where they both want to work together to raise their kids. They have no plans to reconcile and any communication between them is regarding their children's needs and future," the insider told ET. The actor was also spotted outside Angelina's house a couple of times in the past month.

Why are my downvotes on a attack against Pitt not showing? Aniston did cheat on Brad Pitt with Matt LeBlanc.

Anonymous 2 months ago

Too much class? Is what why she keeps planting manipulative and deceitful articles that were all denied ages ago? Is that why she is still running a smear campaign against both of them by misportraying interviews, misquotes, and regurgitating the same line of attack! Is that why Aniston covered up the fact that she cheated on Pitt with her FRIENDS co-star? She even continued to lie even after there were photos leaked back in 2004 and Matt's father confirmed the affair years later. Brad and Angelina NEVER, EVER said they hooked up on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Aniston is CLASSLESS to recycle old misquotes when Pitt and Jolie's actual documented statements deny an affair emphatically as well as some of those statements coming directly from their reps or are televised. When the press misquoted them out of context, Pitt clarified there was no affair. Aniston is not too good for Pitt who she has exploited, betrayed, mistreated, and harassed for headlines ever since they got together. She is not a victim and she needs to stop repeating the same old lies. Brad Pitt is not a loser and because of her manipulation; he is being attacked you and a bunch of brainwashed women over a fake scandal so many years later. Grow up. Aniston is going to suffer from consequences over her betrayal and lies from a higher power. The media will never play fair.

Why has the media buried the dozens of times that Brad Pitt and Jolie denied an affair while he was married to Aniston? They said this both in print and in televised interviews. A lot of those denials have been suppressed or removed from the google search engine by Aniston's PR team. People have been running with misquotes out of context despite Pitt clarifying that there was "no dastardly affair" and acknowledging that the time frame of the shoot overlapped after Jan 2005. He said there was no affair on set. He did not have six kids while he shot Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The film introduced them and obviously it later led to love and family for them. It didn't happen on set. Angelina also denied the affair in the press releases when she did the Vogue interview. She described her dynamic with Pitt as a friendship. Why does Aniston still engage in this spin to mislead people?

Most of these comments are all left by Jennifer Anistons team of cronies. She is still just a bitter, old, unattractive and desperate woman. That’s why Brad left her, who wouldn’t. Angelina is special in every way with all the sacrificing she does in her work for the UN and country’s in need. It shows and that is why Brad fell for her and is still in love with her. Jennifers needs to stop whining, it’s getting old and only shows how bitter she still is.

I also didnt like Angelina at first but I realized that in that line of work this is common. I loved Jennifer till I read stories about her not joining her smaller stars during shoots and was by herself. That is snooty as opposed to Angelina who has done great with adopting kids from developing countries n being a mom. I find Jennifer into herself all the time. She must be shallow and boring that is why Brad must have left her.

"Angie is very bad, broke up a marriage" ... and what was Brad dear? A fragile glass vase without a brain of its own? He is the one who walked away from a loving wife. He is the one who broke his marriage. He is the one who knowingly played his cards with a single woman. We don't even know what he told Angie about himself. Knowing men, he probably told her his marriage was in shatters just to get close to her. He is the real homewrecker. Heck, in No Entry , Biwi No.1, we glorify husbands cheating on loving doting wives as funny comedy family movies. That's the level of zero responsibility men have towards breaking a marriage, while the other woman is hated with all passion. Hate the man ladies. He's the home wrecker, not the other woman.

Why are the down votes keep being removed? Jennifer Aniston had an off and on again with Matt LeBlanc for over 3 years. She was literally caught making out with him in 2004 on two separate days. Her team removed most of the pics from most websites and she hired people to spin this around. Then even his father Paul LeBlanc confirmed an affair. God knows the truth. Do not attack people who post the truth. Ironic since Aniston is the one who plants stories and YOU are posting a false comment.

If you believe allegations of an affair, you would be criticizing both of them....not only applying sexist misconceptions against Brad who has received more hate than either of them over misconceptions. That is a lie. Hollywood and literature has glorified the unfaithful wife while vilifying the philandering husband. None of these quotes indicate an affair and the many denials of an affair are being ignored. Aniston cheated on Pitt and then ran a smear campaign against him. She covered up the evidence. Brad Pitt is not the homewrecker or cheater, he moved on with Jolie after he had split from Aniston. He has maintained that the entire time despite media misquoting him and trying to cover up his old denials.

You are lying and it is her side that is planting these false stories against Pitt. There is literal evidence of her cheating on Pitt with him that she tried to cover up

Yes, Matt LeBlanc and Jennifer Aniston had an affair while they were both married to other people like Melissa McKnight & Brad Pitt. Aniston chose to capitalize on false cheating allegations against Brad Pitt that he has long denied and clarified misquotes that the press has run with, are false. I have known about this affair for years but anybody else who speaks out about it, would be targeted. Matt also cheated on Melissa with Andrea Anders later on. Her PR team removed pictures on two separate occasions in 2004 when she was caught making out with Matt LeBlanc. Only a few articles are available and it includes spin or denials from her side while the press & her PR team vilified Pitt & Jolie over a false account of an affair with ZERO evidence for more than 10 years. Her team even tried to remove many articles or official press statements where Pitt or Jolie denied an affair as well as other friends or co-workers who vouched for Pitt. I read it all but most of that has become obsolete.

Aniston DID have an affair with Matt LeBlanc. Aniston has spent over 15 years planting stories against Brad, Angelina, John Mayer, and etc. There are pictures she tried to suppress from 2004 where she was caught making out with him. Even her Friends cast know this which is why they never badmouthed Pitt. Even Matt's dad confirmed it and she lies by getting her flacks to confirm it. I knew about the affair before the pics. All she did was use and abuse Pitt. There is even evidence of her affair but that gets ignored

Aniston was not some loving wife and all of these quotes are being taken out of context while the press has straight up disregarded their numerous denials of an affair. Aniston had an affair with Matt LeBlanc. She was literally caught making out with him twice in 2004 and buried/spun around the pics. Brad Pitt is still being vilified and harassed over ten years later due to Aniston milking a fake victim card which no actress has ever done. Brad Pitt is not a homewrecker and why do sexist women use this card to absolve only women? Angelina denied an affair and you are not helping her at all.

She did not have an illicit affair with Pitt. The one thing she did not do, she gets the most hate for. Pitt is not responsible for an affair he did not have. He did not have a loving relationship with Aniston.

How is Aniston classy for planting false stories, erasing the dozens of times Pitt-Jolie denied an affair in televised interviews or official statements, and her side is still using two misquotes out of context?

Anonymous 2 months ago

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have spent the past 15 years denying he cheated on Jennifer Aniston. They have denied it on camera in various interviews as well as in official press releases. I know most people have seen or read this. Biased media outlets and the rabid PR machine of his first ex-wife have tried to mislead people with a false premise of a confession by using two misquotes out of context. After those misquotes were circulated, Pitt clarified there was no dastardly affair. It is challenging due to the biased media and that PR machine burying many official statements that Pitt and Jolie have made while running with those misquotes. You try to find the truth and you run into the opposite while digging up articles. It is unfair and there is a massive amount of corruption going on, to keep this fake narrative perpetuating after 2005. Even the original article link to Pitt’s W Magazine clarification as well as to PEOPLE, the AP has been removed from the internet. Somebody’s PR team is covering their bases to mislead people. Brad Pitt, himself, would state that he and Angelina Jolie became more than platonic in late March of 2005 which is several months AFTER he and Aniston announced their separation. Please respect the truth and anyone who replies with “ he cheated” is lying. Most of the media jumped on this bandwagon and refuses to respect the reality which is why Brad Pitt has been unfairly vilified for the past 15 years despite most celebs who have actuall

Aniston had an affair with married Matt LeBlanc. She broke up Heidi and Justin's relationship and there are more examples people don't know about. Angelina did not break up his marriage. Biased media will ignore the dozens of times they denied an affair and then run with misquotes. Angelina denied an affair in that Vogue interview. Pitt's comment does not indicate an affair and he contradicted the accusations of an affair numerous times.

Brad did not break his commitment. None of these recycled hit pieces from Aniston's team are displaying the old denials. I was shocked to discover that most of that has been eradicated from the web but I know all of you read them over the years. Neither of them said there was an affair and will always deny it.

Lol! Well 100% of men would disagree. She wasn't the one who made the commitment to be married. That's all on Brad. What she does for children goes beyond any of this. I don't mind Jen eaither, but very few men could resist Angelina.
