You need to stay calm as it is the birthday of none other than the Hollywood beauty, Angelina Jolie. The mother of 6 children and the multi-talented star is entering the 40s club this year.
Born in LA, California to actors, Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand, the sister of James Haven had been an epitome of beauty and has given us uncountable hits in her acting career. Now that she is also a director, Jolie had always been one of the ideal figures for aspiring talents.
As it is the birthday of Angelina Jolie, we decided to take a look down at her infamous love story with Brad Pitt. Jolie had been married twice before to Jonny Lee Miller (1996-99) and then Billy Bob Thornton (2000-03).
Then single mother, Angelina Jolie met Brad Pitt on the sets of Mr. & Mrs. Smith and love blossomed. She even got involved in a well-publicized Hollywood scandal when she was accused of being the reason for the divorce of Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.
In 2005, Jolie explained, "To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive. I could not look at myself in the morning if I did that. I wouldn't be attracted to a man who would cheat on his wife."
"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," Jolie said in the January 2006 issue of Vogue.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are one of the most talked about power couples in Hollywood who have been nicknamed 'Brangelina'.
From co-stars to one of the most romantic couples in Hollywood, the journey of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has been very impressive. They have faced a lot of ups and downs, but their strong love and trust have kept them together. After endless talks about marriage, Brangelina finally tied the knot on August 23, 2014, at their estate Château Miraval in Correns, France.
Check out their love story in the slide show.
On The Sets
Pitt and Jolie met in 2004 on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005). In early 2005, their association became the subject of a much-publicized Hollywood scandal where she was said to be the reason behind the separation of Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. Although both denied the allegations, the couple still admit that they fell in love on the sets of the film.
What Jolie Feels
Talking about the allegations, Jolie said, "To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive. I could not look at myself in the morning if I did that. I wouldn't be attracted to a man who would cheat on his wife."
In April, 2005, a month after Aniston filed for divorce, photos emerged of Pitt, Jolie, and her adopted son Maddox at a beach in Kenya which fueled their dating rumours.
Confirmation & Pregnancy
On January 11, 2006, Jolie confirmed to People that she was pregnant with Pitt's child (Shiloh Nouvel), and thereby acknowledged their relationship for the first time in public.
"And then we just continued to take time. We remained very, very good friends - with this realization - for a long time," reports People. "And then life developed in a way where we could be together, where it felt like something we would do, we should do."
Adoption & Pregnancy
Jolie adopted a daughter, six-month-old Zahara Marley, from an orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on July 6, 2005. The same year, Jolie and Pitt also adopted Maddox and Zahara. On March 15, 2007, Jolie adopted a son, three-year-old Pax Thien, from an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Jolie gave birth to a son, Knox León, and a daughter, Vivienne Marcheline, on July 12, 2008.
Jolie told how it was meeting Pitt for the first time in 2003. "I didn't know much about exactly where Brad was in his personal life," she told Vogue. "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."
After seven years, three adopted children and three biological children, Jolie and Pitt got engaged on April 13, 2012.
After dating for 9 years, Brangelina secretly got married in France on August 23, 2014. Jolie was escorted up the aisle by her eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10. Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, threw petals. Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, were the ring bearers.
"Before the wedding in France with the kids, Brad and I were already married in California," Jolie told Italian magazine Io Donna. "One day I said to Brad, 'Let's meet up at 4:30 pm?' "I called a justice of the peace and we signed the documents." So this was just a formal ceremony after 10 years of relationship.
What Jolie Felt About Marriage Before
"We both have been married before, so it's not marriage that's necessarily kept some people together," she told in 2006. "We are legally bound to our children, not to each other, and I think that's the most important thing."
"We felt so complete, and the commitment to children is one that you cannot walk away from, so we already had that commitment. It was really that we wanted to re-commit and commit deeper in a way, and we wanted to celebrate that union with our children. As soon as it was all over, we all just changed clothes and hung out. It was just a very happy time. It wasn't this monumental change - we were just very happy and sure, and it's quite an extraordinary feeling to be so sure. It gives you peace," she said post her wedding to Pitt.
