Angelina Jolie parted with Brad Pitt, whom he accused of domestic abuseFor the safety of his family, he shared this with The Guardian.
“There are a lot of things I can’t say,” Jolie said of her married years.
“I am not the type of person who makes decisions like the ones I had to make lightly. It took a lot for me to be in a position where I felt I had to separate myself from the father of my children. “
The couple began a relationship in 2005 and married in 2014 to divorce in 2016.
Five days before Jolie filed for divorce, the family experienced an incident when they were traveling in their private plane and Pitt, drunk, would have raped his then 15-year-old son named Maddox. Although the actor admitted to having a problem with alcohol and yelling at one of his children, he denied any physical abuse.
During the interview that Jolie gave, it was also discussed how she who has fought for children’s rights found herself in a situation where her own children could be vulnerable.
“Often you cannot recognize something personally, especially if it focuses on the biggest injustices in the world, because everything else seems smaller. It is very difficult. I wish I could have this conversation and it is so important … ”.
Another difference between Pitt and Jolie, and of which the actress spoke, had to do with the former producer Harvey weinstein, who Angelina worked with when she was 21 years old and made the Miramax movie “Playing By Heart,” she said, managed to escape a sexual abuse by the ex-producer. For Jolie, the incident was also an abuse of her rights.
“I remember telling Jonny, my first husband, who was great about it, to spread the word to other guys: ‘don’t let the girls go alone with him.’ They asked me to do The Aviator, but I said no because he I was involved, “he said.
“I never associated or worked with him again. It was difficult for me when Brad did,” she said of “Inglorious Basterds” by Quentin Tarantino and co-produced by Weinstein Company.
Jolie and Pitt share six children, Maddox, 20, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 12.
