Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split astounded Hollywood in 2016 and while we still are mourning the loss of Brangelina, the exes have on numerous occasions spoke about their former spouse, good or bad.
In an interview with a leading US-based entertainment magazine’s podcast, Angelina discloses how she believed that working with Brad in By The Sea would have helped their marriage.
The actress disclosed, “We had met 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. 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…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.”
Angelina added later, “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 had been challenging. So that wasn’t a particular time when I wrote it…I had my mastectomy right before I hadUnbroken. 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 have that surgery as well, and other things of course that happened in life that you go through. 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. Whatever it was maybe it didn’t solve certain things, but we did communicate something that needed to be communicated to each other.”
