Pitt Married Jennifer Aniston
Pitt married Jennifer Aniston in 2001, who he started dating in 1998. They divorced in 2004. Their agents set them up on a blind date.
“I will say this about Jen: She’s fantastic, she’s complicated, she’s wise, she’s fair, she has great empathy for others… and she’s just so cool,” he told Rolling Stone.
Their Malibu wedding cost more than $1 million. They were married on a Malibu estate with $20,000 worth of fireworks. Guests included Salma Hayek, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz, and Courteney Cox who signed confidentiality agreements.
Pitt & Angelina Jolie Were Married
Pitt got together with Angelina Jolie in 2004. His divorce from Aniston sparked controversy among his fans, prompting them to choose Team Aniston or Team Jolie.
“It became very clear to me that I was so intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think my marriage [to Aniston] had something to do with it: trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t,” he said.
Pitt and Jolie announced their relationship in a W spread that showed them playing house in Palm Springs. They had six children.
Pitt and Jolie lasted 12 years. “When someone asked me why Angie and I don’t get married, I replied, ‘Maybe we’ll get married when it’s legal for everyone else.’ I stand by that, although I took a lot of flak for saying it—hate mail from religious groups. I believe everyone should have the same rights. They say gay marriage ruins families and hurts kids. Well, I’ve had the privilege of seeing my gay friends being parents and watching their kids grow up in a loving environment,” Pitt told Parade.
Jolie filed for divorce in 2016. Pitt told GQ about their divorce in 2017.
“The avoidance of pain is a real mistake. It’s the real missing out on life. It’s those very things that shape us, those very things that offer growth, that make the world a better place, oddly enough, ironically. That make us better. By the way, there’s no love without loss. It’s a package deal.”
