Hollywood’s most loved and adored power couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are getting a divorce and people all over the world are having trouble believing that it is really happening. The iconic love story of Brangelina seemed magical and flawless for about 13 years, before news of them started surfacing back in September.
In a tribute to their love story spanning over a decade, we have assembled photographs of the two of them, depicting their love story over all these years.
It all started in 2005, when the two were cast as a husband and wife in Doug Liman’s “Mr. & Mrs Smith“. Since then, rumors of the two being involved in a romantic relationship began to emerge. While Angelina was playing the role of Brad’s wife in the movie, Pitt was already in a relationship with Jennifer Aniston.
The two were caught enjoying a moment together while on a break from the shooting of the movie. And while it is true that the two had a special connection on and off set, rumors of the two dating did not emerge for another year.
And while the tabloids and magazines were flooded with rumors and speculations, the movie’s director Doug Liman was quoted as crediting their pairing as “magnetic” and “something that you can’t fake”
“They were amazing right from the beginning, from that opening scene in couples’ counselling on the first with no rehearsal. And that’s the stuff you can’t fake”, said the director in a later interview with the media.
The producer of the movie, Akiva Goldsman has something similar to say about the pair’s on and off screen chemistry, suggesting that “they’re a great pairing on screen”. “They’re both fiercely intelligent, beautiful and talented. You know, who doesn’t want to watch that.
Then, finally in 2005, Brad and Jennifer Aniston parted ways, ending their 5 year relationship. Soon after the divorce Brad was seen alongside with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star/love interest.
And even though their relationship was fairly new, the media took no time in welcoming their relationship and even labeling them as ‘rainbow family’ when Jolie adopted the 6 month old Zahara.
In 2006, Brad adopted Angelina’s adopted son, Maddox, and officially changed the surnames of Maddox and Zahara to Jolie-Pitt.
And while the world was desperately waiting for the day when the couple would finally tie the knot, Brad and Angelina welcomed their newly born daughter Shiloh Nouvel, to their family in 2007.
And given the reputation of the Pitt-Jolie family, it was clear that this would not be the last addition to their family.
In 2007, the couple decided to adopt a Vietnamese boy, Pax.
The following year, the two attended the Cannes Film Festival, where Angelina was seen pregnant with twins, who would be later named Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline.
On July 12, 2008, the couple introduced the adorable twins to the world.
In 2012, after years of being together, the couple finally announced that they were getting married. Which they did two years later in August, 2014 at a private ceremony held in France.
And the couple released intimate photos of the wedding, along with their children on this special occasion.
Along with being cited as Hollywood’s most loved ‘power-couple’, the two of them are also respected for their philanthropic and charitable activities around the world.
Sad as it is, this year may be the last that the world will see of Brangelina. Since the couple announced the news of getting a divorce, the world has been left heartbroken.
This is the third marriage for Angelina Jolie who was previously married to Billy Bob Thornton and Johnny Lee Miller. And it marks the second divorce for Brad, who was previously married to Jennifer Aniston.
And it’s not just us, Hollywood is devastated by the news of their separation too.
