Brangelina forever! For almost 10 years now, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have captivated the world with their epic romance. From the moment they met on 2005’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith — when Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston — to their surprise wedding on Saturday, Aug. 23, the A-list pair has dominated headlines and taken Hollywood by storm.
The fascination with their relationship began even before they got together, when rumors about their insane chemistry in Mr. and Mrs. Smith surfaced amid news of the Fury actor’s split from Aniston. Though both stars denied that anything had happened between them on set, Jolie told the New York Times in 2008 that she wanted to someday show the flick to their kids, because “not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love.”
The Maleficent actress also spoke about the bond they formed while filming during an interview with Vogue in 2006. “I think we were both the last two people who were looking for a relationship. I certainly wasn’t,” she told the mag. “I was quite content to be a single mom with Mad. And I didn’t know much about exactly where Brad was in his personal life. But it was clear he was with his best friend, someone he loves and respects. And so we were both living, I suppose, very full lives.”
Their relationship was purely professional at first, she explained. “I think a few months in I realized, ‘God, I can’t wait to get to work.’ Whether it was shooting a scene or arguing about a scene or gun practice or dance class or doing stunts — anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork,” she told Vogue. “We just became kind of a pair.”
Ultimately they realized that there was something more between them, and the rest, as they say, is history. In the near-decade since, they’ve walked countless red carpets together, vacationed all over the world with their six kids, and experienced both good times and not-so-good times, including Jolie’s two pregnancies, as well as her 2013 mastectomy.
