Angelina and Jonny Lee Miller were married from March 28, 1996 to February 3, 1999. The young love birds met on the set of their film, Hackers, and married in March of 1996. Angelina was 21 years old during the wedding and wore tight black rubber trousers and a white top which had Jonny’s name written across the back of her shirt in her own blood.
The marriage lasted three years and today Angelina will speak about the fond memories she shared with Jonny. They are still close till this day. ”I don’t know how good a wife I was. And that’s the one thing that made it possible for me to be somewhat OK with us separating. He kept me centered and we had a beautiful, amazing marriage. But our lives went in different directions. I actually felt like I’d handled it better than my parents. We were so completely honest”, says Angelina. She has also stated that one of the reasons why they separated was that they were simply too young.
When asked if he is still in touch with Angelina, Jonny said in 2017: “Yeah, we’re still friends.”
When Angelina revealed that she is bisexual she also told the media that she had had a relationship with her Foxfire co-star, Jenny Shimizu, and that she cared deeply for her. “I would probably have married Jenny if I hadn’t married my husband. I fell in love with her the first second I saw her.”
Recently there were media reports that Jenny had given a ‘tell all’ interview about her relationship with Angelina but these rumours turned out to be completely false.
Angelina and Billy Bob Thorton were married from May 5, 2000 to July 8, 2002. They met on the set of their film, Pushing Tin, when Billy Bob was seriously involved with actress Laura Dern. Angelina and Billy Bob married less than a year later at Little Church of the West in Las Vegas. Angelina wore faded blue jeans and a lilac-colored sleeveless top and Billy Bob wore blue jeans, a long sleeve black shirt decorated with a multi-colored print and a black trucker hat. The couple chose the ‘beginnings’ package for their ceremony which was the least expensive of the packages on offer.
During their highly publicized marriage the couple often spoke of their love for each other, some of the time shocking the public such as wearing each others’ blood in a vial around their necks. “We had written things in blood on the walls over our bed, and at Christmas time, I had bought these amulets that were supposed to be for pressed flowers. We just cut our fingers and gave some to each other, and we’ve worn them ever since”, says Angelina.
During their time together Angelina often said that they were both very similar personalities, wild and outgoing, and that she considered him to be the sexiest man alive. “He’s the sexiest man I’ve ever seen in my life. He’s physically everything I desire, which is kind of amazing, because he’s the soul I’m in love with.”
In March of 2002 Angelina and Billy Bob adopted Maddox. It was announced by Angelina’s father, Jon Voight, that Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton had adopted a baby boy from Cambodia.
Sadly Angelina and Billy Bob called it quits in July of 2002, and Angelina took custody of baby Maddox. Today Angelina and Billy Bob are in good terms. There have been rumours that he cheated on Angelina during their marriage, to which Billy Bob responded: “No, no, no. That was the rumor but that was never it. It was a great relationship. For the time we were together, we loved each other and we did it all the way. We didn’t leave any stone unturned. But we had different ideas about how we wanted to live our lives – that’s all it was. She’s all over the world, and I respect her for it. I want to stay home.”
Both Angelina and Billy Bob tattoos devoted to each other but she has now had hers removed. Angelina had Billy Bob’s name written underneath the dragon on her arm and has since had his name lasered off and replaced it with the coordinates of her globe-spanning family’s birthplaces. Angelina’s name is still tattooed on Thornton’s leg and part of his arm (the latter now covered by an angel).
Thornton and Jolie remain friendly. In 2016, Angelina wrote an introduction to Billy Bob’s memoir, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts. “I never felt good enough for her,” Billy Bob said in 2016. “I’m real uncomfortable around rich and important people.”
Brad Pitt is an international movie star and Angelina’s partner since 2005. Born December 18, 1963, Brad’s notable films are Thelma & Louise, Interview with the Vampire, Legends of the Fall, Se7en, Fight Club, Snatch, Ocean’s Eleven and Mr. & Mrs. Smith in which he co-starred with Angelina. Brad also has his own production company named Plan B.
Throughout 2005 after the release of Mr. and Mrs. Smith and the announced separation of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, there was huge media hype that Angelina and Brad were now an item. The pair never publicly commented the rumours, despite having their photograph taken together. In December 2005, Brad requested permission to legally adopt Maddox and Zahara. In Janurary 19, 2006, the permission was granted and the children’s surnames became Jolie-Pitt.
On January 11, 2006 Angelina announced through People Magazine that she was expecting a child with Brad Pitt. As Angelina’s pregnancy progressed, she kept up her filming and charity commitments with Brad Pitt by her side. Near the end of Angelina’s pregnancy, the couple went to Namibia to retreat from the ever present media. On May 27, 2006 Angelina gave birth to a baby named Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt. On July 12, 2008, the Jolie-Pitt family welcomed twins Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline into the world.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie established the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation in 2006 to assist with humanitarian crises around the world. To launch the foundation, the pair made donations of $1 million to Doctors Without Borders and Global Action for Children.
In 2012, the couple got engaged when Brad popped the question with a custom-designed ring. After spending nearly ten years together, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt married on August 23, 2014, at their estate Château Miraval in Correns, France. Angelina and Brad were also reunited on the big screen for By the Sea, directed by Angelina. “I trust her with my life. She’s decisive, incredibly intuitive, knife-sharp, and, might I say, sexy at her post”, Brad commented on being directed by Angelina.
Angelina and Brad were branded with Sak yant tattoos in 2016. The tattoos were applied during a break from filming First They Killed My Father in Cambodia, with ex Thai monk Ajarn Noo Kanpai applying the symbolic ink to the pair. The couple’s tattoos were to symbolically bind them as husband and wife.
Angelina spoke on her husband: “[Brad] has expanded my life in ways I never imagined. We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear. I suppose what I’ve learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own. I’m very, very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn’t have that without him.”
Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. They were together for 12 years. In her divorce filing, Angelina requested physical custody of their children. “It was very difficult,” she said in 2017. “Many people find themselves in this situation. My whole family have all been through a difficult time. My focus is my children, our children. We are and forever will be a family and so that is how I am coping. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer.”
