In 2004, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie met. According to the former bodyguard of the actors, the spark jumped over quite quickly in both.
For twelve years, Angelina Jolie, 46, and Brad Pitt, 57, were considered one of Hollywood’s dream couples: The actors met on the set of the joint film “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” in 2004. In the blockbuster, the two embody a couple who suffer from various marital problems and then begin couples therapy.
You’d think Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s relationship ended the way it began: as an unhappy couple. However, while Mr. and Mrs. Smith get closer again in the film after dramatic scenes and various murder attempts, Jolie filed for divorce from her husband in 2016. Since then, the two have been waging a bitter marriage war, in which, in addition to a lot of money, it is mainly about custody of their six children.
Ex-bodyguard talks about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt relationship
That the relationship of Hollywood’s former dream couple would develop in this way could not have been suspected at the beginning of the filming of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” in 2004, says the couple’s bodyguard at the time, Mark Behar. He reports to the magazine “InTouch” that the Hollywood stars cautiously approached each other at the beginning of the shoot. “It was like being in high school and passing notes back and forth between friends,” says the bodyguard. However, it quickly became clear to him what could develop from the chemistry of the two actors on set: “I thought: ‘I know where this leads’.”
During filming, Brad Pitt was actually still married to his acting colleague Jennifer Aniston, 52. In January 2005, the couple finally announced their divorce. One reason for this could probably have been Angelina Jolie, because Mark Behar reports on a spicy situation on the film set: “You could definitely feel that there was something there. There were personal gifts and personal belongings that were exchanged.”
“Brad was obsessed with Angelina”
The actor is also said to have spoken privately with his bodyguard about his colleague: “Brad told me it was as if a tornado had come and had taken it with him.” Angelina Jolie literally blew the actor away. Another source goes even further, reporting, “Brad was obsessed with Angelina.”
Mark Behar finds it incomprehensible that the relationship and subsequent marriage of the initial turtle doves now ends in such a War of the Roses: “These are adult people, I didn’t think it would develop that way.” The divorce of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt has not yet been officially completed, again and again the still spouses meet in court to discuss mutual accusations. A happy ending like in the movie “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” seems to be ruled out here.
