As previously reported, Pitt, 54, and Jolie, 42, called it quits in September 2016. The former couple tied the knot in 2014 after 12 years together. They share six children together — Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11 and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
The Maleficent actress filed for divorce from the Inglourious Basterds actor following an alleged incident on a plane between Pitt and Maddox. The FBI investigated allegations of child abuse against the actor, but later cleared him.
“We had met working together and we worked together well,” Jolie said in December 2017 about 2005’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith. “In some ways it was [good for communication] and in some ways we learned some things … But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on and it wasn’t because of the film.”
“A piece of art can be something that’s healing or something that’s difficult,” she continued. “I don’t know. I’m glad we did that film because we did explore something together. Whatever it was maybe it didn’t solve certain things, but we did communicate something that needed to be communicated to each other.”
