The fairy tale wedding of Brad Pitt (55) and Angelina Jolie (44) broke up in September 2016, but their divorce struggle was only resolved this year. It has been a difficult period for the brunette, she says in an interview during the Disney presentation for their new streaming service.
“The last few years have not been the easiest and I did not feel particularly strong”
The marriage of Angelina and Brad went badly and resulted in a considerable aftermath for both parties. The actress now reveals herself to have felt “very weak” due to the divorce, but thanks to her new film roles she has climbed on top again. The 44-year-old will soon be playing in the second film of the Maleficent series and will also be featured in the new Marvel film The Eternals .
The separation between the actors came two years after their marriage and twelve years of relationship. The fight between the two was mainly about the guardianship of their six children. Maddox (18), Pax (15), Sahara (14), Shiloh (13) and the twins Knox and Vivienne (11) were the center of their parents’ interest. “I’m just a human,” Angelina told E! News . “The last few years have not been the easiest and I did not feel particularly strong. When you feel that way, you automatically push yourself to get better.”
“I am so grateful for these new roles,” Angelina continued. “These characters pull all the power out of me, making me feel strong again. Sometimes I feel very bad and need something to pull us up.” Maleficent: The Mistress of Evil will be released on October 18 this year and The Eternals will be shown in cinemas from November 6, 2020.
