Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Split Up
“Brangelina” was the most favorite couple of Hollywood. When they announced their separation many hearts broke. After their separation, both had to go through a hard time on the personal front. Both suffered an emotional breakdown and have had a hard time adjusting to single life.
For a long time both of them remained quiet about their personal lives but in the recent past Brad reached out to Jennifer Aniston (his former spouse whom he left for Angelina) and apologized for being an absentee husband.
Now Angelina also opened about her split with Brad and said there is nothing nice about it. Angelina was present at the Telluride Film Festival to promote her upcoming thriller movie ‘First They Killed My Father’, where she gave this statement:
“I Don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.
Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together, but really I am just trying to get through my days.”
Before their separation, Angelina underwent a preventative double mastectomy four years ago and later had her ovaries removed. All this affected her health. The couple has 6 children and Angelina holds their legal custody. Brad is allowed visits for limited hours. Talking about all that Angelina said:
“So my health is something I have to monitor. So much in life, you just focus on how much worse it could be. And I am so happy I don’t have cancer, and that if I do get it, it will be delayed for a few years. The exchange for that peace of mind is quite good. I feel sometimes that my body has taken a hit, but I try to laugh as much as possible.”
“The children have been amazing. It’s been so moving to see how much they have helped each other and how much they have helped me. They have really come into their own and they are finding themselves and their voices. I know that they will have each other for life and it gives me great peace to know the day I pass away that they will take care of each other.”
Before concluding, she also stated that as her kids hit their teens, it is her time to “rediscover a little bit of the old me.” Hopefully, both of them recover soon from this stage of their life.
