Angelina Jolie landed the cover page of Vanity Fair for its September edition, wherein she opened up about what she has been up to after her divorce with Brad Pitt. In fact, the actress even revealed what went wrong in their marriage which led to their separation.

Inside Brad and Angie's relationship

The pair were first mired in dating controversy while filming "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" in 2004. Brad Pitt was then married to Jennifer Aniston, while Angelina Jolie has just got out of her marriage with Billy Bob Thornton. Although both parties initially denied the rumors, it was not long until the couple finally publicized their relationship in 2005.

A year later, the two were blessed with their first biological child, Shiloh, who was born in Africa. "We thought we wanted to find a place that was a beautiful place that our other children would enjoy. And they have, they've had an amazing adventure," the two said in a press conference.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt welcomed the twins, Knox and Vivienne, to their growing family two years later. The couple finally said their vows in a private wedding ceremony in France last August 2014. Things were looking well for them until the "By the Sea" actress filed for divorce from her husband in September 2016. She cited "irreconcilable differences" as the grounds for their separation and sought sole physical custody of their six kids.

What went wrong in their marriage?

Several months after the divorce filing was made, the 42-year-old actress talked about her failed marriage with Brad Pitt. "Things got bad. I didn't want to use that word... Things became difficult," she told Vanity Fair. "[Our lifestyle] was not in any way a negative."

The mother of six denied their celebrity status has something to do with their separation.

In fact, she is grateful that their profession has allowed them to provide for their children. "They’re six very strong-minded, thoughtful, worldly individuals. I’m very proud of them.” the actress added.

The award-winning celebrity also commended her kids for their bravery in times of difficulties. Angelina Jolie explained that the entire family is still healing from what took place that led to the separation.

She went on to share that her kids are recovering from the unfortunate things that happened in the past.

She continued to discuss her health condition and confessed that acupuncture has been a big help in her recovery from Bell's palsy. Angelina Jolie added that she feels "more of a woman" now that she is putting her family first above all. The actress thought she is making the right decisions in the way she is leading her life.
