10 Sweetest Quotes About Love and Marriage From Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Or should we say heartbreaking because...well, walang forever.
(SPOT.ph) On September 20, word broke out that Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after 12 years and six kids together. Sparks first flew between Brangelina in the 2005 hit film, Mr. and Mrs. Smith. 10 years later, the A-list couple tied the knot in a small ceremony in France. Two years later, we can safely say that love is dead and nothing is real.
Some say Pitt was allegedly having an affair with his Allied co-star Marion Cotillard. TMZ.com claims that Jolie cited irreconcilable differences, and that there was "no third person" involved. Instead, the rift reportedly stemmed from his "parenting methods." She is seeking physical custody of their kids while Pitt gets visitation rights.
In a statement from Jolie's attorney, the actress said the decision was for the "health of the family." Meanwhile, Pitt told PEOPLE that he was "very saddened" and that what matters most is the "wellbeing of [their] kids."
Just to break your heart (and ours) even more, we round up 10 of the sweetest quotes shared by the former couple over the years.
