Their love story began on sat starring in the blockbuster mr. and mrs. Smith. While Brad dead was married to Jennifer Aniston. Yeah. Swirling speculation about an on set romance created a tabloid meltdown. In march of that year Aniston filed for divorce at the time bracket denying to Diane Sawyer that his relationship with Angelina Jolie was to blame. Did Angelina Jolie break up your marriage question now. Everyone says she's a home wrecker. It's consumed just a few months later the pair are went public posing for the cover of W magazine. Depicting themselves as a happy couple with kids Joseph Lee who was already a mom to adopted son not X later adopted daughter Zahara from Ethiopia. And in 2006 the couple had their first biological child Shiloh by 2008 the couple adopted second son pax. And Joseph lead gave birth to twins vivienne and Knox. I wake up every day that not just happy as mommy and I'm so lucky Jolie talked to George in May 2014. It's about whether she and Brad would ever get married now I think the important thing is that whenever we do at that the kids do have a great time tying the knot just three months later in a family affair at their chateau in France. Her bail designed by all six kids with colorful drawings and Jolie changing her name legally to Joseph leap yet. It was amazing day and I think there's there's there's. Doesn't have security that comes with the. The couple's last film together she doesn't fifteens and by the C directed by Julie. Depicted a husband and wife with their marriage on the rocks resistant PS. Some book trying to Aniston's. Turning out to be a foreshadowing for Hollywood's most glamorous couple. So here to get into his Larry Hackett he's the former editor of People Magazine you covered him for years and years I think it was just some very different priorities. I don't think was very different priorities here that there's a way that its liberties break up usually it's a joint statement together we love each other it's amicable but we've gone our separate ways to which is what Brad Pitt Jennifer Aniston did when they split eleven years ago twelve years ago. That didn't happen this time this has all the earmarks of being a much rougher kind of break up when you have some and issue a statement one of the parties this thing I'm doing this. For the health of the family. That is a tanning hot dogs in the health of the family they're saying better be careful what's coming next that's what they're saying they're angry that are settle this thing and also asking for sole custody of six children. That's not a good sign advocate and that children that's a depressed can you imagine what's going on properly and then he said this is all about the kids which is his code for saying. I'm not going to have a gratified that Bono means I'm gonna I think I'm gonna find from a can absolutely do that don't think either one them really want the wanted to get. Tom good master to get it done with that affect their careers if you would raise a very good point. No couple but I can to giving recent history has been burnished by being together both of their reputations have definitely risen by being together. So again that may not be front of mind right now but if this becomes super nasty and it becomes in in public and dragged out it's not good for about forty C next steps. I see cooler heads prevailing and I see lawyers who represented as a both sides saying how can we settle this without you know collateral damage to the children. To ourselves into our careers as to what we really want to do she really wants to be humanitarian do her thing. He clearly wants to stay in Hollywood and do his thing. You know high what is a very forgiving place in the community. And at and I'm think anybody wants to see records I think people want to remember this marriage as being a wonderful thing with six children. And people who try to battle the world and let's try to preserve that even though the two people who at the top of it. Are no longer together. I agree with the agreement that Larry Hackett thank you so very much for your insight as always.
