Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt marry in private ceremony
LOS ANGELES — Actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got married Saturday in a small, private service in France, a spokesman for the couple told the Associated Press. The couple’s children took part in the ceremony.
Jolie and Pitt’s relationship dates back to 2005, the same year their action thriller/romance movie “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” arrived in theaters. At the time, Pitt petitioned to formally adopt Jolie’s two kids, Maddox and Zahara, and since then the couple have welcomed four more children: Shiloh, Pax and twins Vivienne and Knox.
“I never thought I’d have children, I never thought I’d be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person,” Jolie said in a recent Elle magazine interview. “Having come from a broken home — you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don’t look for them.”
Pitt and Jolie announced their engagement in April 2012.
“You get together and you’re two individuals and you feel inspired by each other,” Jolie said of her relationship with Pitt. “You challenge each other, you complement each other, drive each other beautifully crazy. After all these years, we have history — and when you have history with somebody, you’re friends in such a very real, deep way that there’s such a comfort, and an ease, and a deep love that comes from having been through quite a lot together.”
This is Pitt’s second marriage and Jolie’s third.
