Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt sparked a media frenzy when they first got together. Whether you loved, hated, or even cared that two of the most beautiful people in Hollywood were together – you simply couldn’t avoid images of them together in every publication.
Despite rumors of infidelity and secret affairs, Hollywood’s most iconic couple stayed with one another for 12 years, raising their three biological children and three adopted children.
“Tomb Raider” star Angelina Jolie already had two adopted sons, Maddox and Pax, when she met Brad Pitt on the set of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” in 2004. Brad Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston back then.
“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 realized, ‘God, I can’t wait to get to work.’ … 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 Jolie told People in 2006.
