Although it seems like the private couple has been married all this time, fact of the matter is: they weren’t. Pitt once vowed never to get married until gay marriage was legal everywhere.
Currently, same-sex couples can only legally be married in 19 states plus D.C. but we’re guessing that a higher height of love, commitment and solidarity won’t let him wait.
As having been expressed by Angie herself, she and Brad met and fell in love in with one another in 2005 during filing Mr. and Mrs. Smith then became engaged in 2012. In an interview done at that time, Brad Pitt stated: “It’s an exciting prospect, even though for us, we’ve gone further than that. But to concretize it in that way, it actually means more to me than I thought it would. It means a lot to our kids.”
The proud parents of adopted children (Maddox-13, Pax-10, Zahara-9, and Vivienne-6), they became husband and wife this past Saturday-reportedly married in Paris, France.
Their eight year-old’s (Shiloh and Knox-6), served as ring-bearers while the two daughters: Zahara and Vivienne, threw flower petals.
In a nondenominational civil ceremony with the license having been obtained from a California judge (who as well conducted the ceremony), the reclusive couple are said to have exchanged nuptials at the village of Correns’ Chateau Miraval-a property that boasts having a 35-room house and vineyard (owned by Angie and Brad since 2008).
No word on if, when, or where the happy couple will spend their honeymoon but according to reports surfacing, the newlywed (who’s always done it their way), are set to begin filming and starring together in their next film in Malta called By the Sea-written and directed by Jolie.
This is the second marriage for Brad Pitt who was married to actress Jennifer Aniston from 2000-2005-shortly after filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
For three years (late 90s) Angelina was previously married to British actor Jonny Lee Miller and then to actor-director Billy Bob Thornton for three years. They divorced in 2003.
Although the private couple (and even as individuals) don’t do much Hollywood hob-knobbing, they still manage to stay working, significant and celebrated.
Jolie won an Oscar for best supporting actress in the movie “Girl Interrupted” (1999) and was nominated for best-actress Oscar for “Changeling” (2008).
Brad Pitt shared the Academy Award for best picture earlier this year for “12 Years a Slave.”
In May 2013, and having penned a public open letter as revealed in the New York Times-detailing her reasons, Angelina underwent a preventive double mastectomy because she had a mutated BRCA1 gene inherently known to raise a woman’s risk of breast and ovarian cancers.
Brad was by her side the entire step of the way-helping her in every possible way.
Rather than what we’d all expect from these two revered celebs, Brad and Angelina share common, deeper, meaningful and selfless bonds with one another, most notably traveling the world and abroad-on missions of understanding other cultures of the world and other people in it outside of the bright lights of Tinseltown.
