In September 2016, one of Hollywood’s best-known couples, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, announced they had split.
The pair are parents to six children, had been together for almost 12 years and had married just two years earlier.
It was the news no celebrity spotter saw coming, and in the 10 months since the split, headlines have been filled with rumours about the stars supposed ‘bitter feuds’, affairs and custody battles.
In May, 53-year-old Brad Pitt offered up his version of events in an interview with GQ Style, admitting that his “boozing” lifestyle had led to the breakdown of his relationship with his second wife.
Now, 42-year-old Angelina Jolie has given her most candid interview since she filed for divorce from her Mr and Mrs Smith co-star.
And with her heartbreaking words to Vanity Fair, we’ve been reminded of the one fact we seem to have forgotten throughout the couple’s split drama: underneath it all, despite the fame and money, this is a family that has been broken.
For nine months, Angelina said her and her six children “lived out of suitcases” while they rented houses after moving out their residence with Brad.
The pair are still negotiating the terms of their divorce. Angelina is, for the most part, parenting their six children, all aged under 15, on her own.
