Former power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split shocked the world last year. While we still might not be over Brangelina, it looks like the Hollywood A-listers have moved on.
“We had been working together and we worked together well. I wanted us to do some serious work together. I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate. In some ways it was, and in some ways, we learned some things,” Jolie said.
“But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on and it wasn’t because of the film. It was something that we were dealing with. Things happen for different reasons, and things…why did I write that exact piece? Why did we feel that way when we made it? I’m not sure.”
Jolie revealed the past few years have been challenging for her, but some fortunate things have happened too. “My life has been… I’ve had many, many extraordinary, very fortunate things happen and it’s also been many things over the years that have been challenging. I had my mastectomy right before I had Unbroken. Over the span of that decade, I did lose my mother. I did have my mastectomy, and I did then have an ovarian cancer scare and had that surgery as well, and other things of course that happened in life that you go through.”
She however, has no regrets about working with Pitt on By the Sea. “A piece of art can be something that’s healing or something that’s difficult. I don’t know. I’m glad we did that film because we did explore something together,” she said. “Whatever it was, maybe it didn’t solve certain things but we did communicate something that needed to be communicated to each other.”
After a decade together, in what could be considered the highest-profile split in the last decade, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September of last year. The pair share six children.
