Aniston, who has been happily married to Justin Theroux since August 2015, and Pitt split after nearly a decade together in January 2005, shattering our #relationshipgoals (in a pre-hashtag world) of Hollywood power couples and endless love. Jolie filed for a dissolution of their marriage, her attorney told the Associated Press.
The actor told via the dailymail: "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids". There were reports of an affair during that time, but Jolie told Vogue magazine they were only "very, very good friends" until Pitt and Aniston split in 2005. She is seeking sole custody of the couple's six children and is not asking for spousal support.
Jolie was previously married to Jonny Lee Miller, whom she divorced in 1999, and Billy Bob Thornton, whom she divorced in 2003. There was a time that Angelina used to talk about how she and Brad fell in love on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith when he was still married.
Each child had a role to play on their special day - eldest sons Maddox and Pax walked their mum down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne were the flower girls and Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.
Pitt and Jolie were married in 2014, after almost a decade together. "By the time we got to set, it was really wonderful to see these characters already feel lived-in and real". Last year, the couple starred together in her "By the Sea", playing a glamorous couple vacationing together in France while their marriage was on the rocks. "He's a really great artist, such an interesting artist, and of course he's the man I love, so I think we're going to have a great time".
Jolie has been estranged from her father, actor Jon Voight, but he told Inside Edition he was concerned about the divorce filing. "It was crucial for Brad and Marion to not only begin rehearsing together before the shoot, but they also spent a lot of time developing their characters with the director, Robert Zemeckis".
