Flashback: Remember When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Took Their Kids to the ‘Maleficent’ Premiere?

It was a family affair. More than two years before Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt split, the longtime couple brought five of their six children to the Maleficent movie premiere in May 2014 — and it was absolutely adorable.

The Academy Award–winning actress, now 41, and the World War Z actor, 52 (who married that August), arrived holding hands at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood for the Disney film’s world premiere.

Clad in a strapless black leather Versace gown, Jolie looked stunning as she channeled Maleficent, the famous Sleeping Beauty villain who she portrayed in the 2014 eponymous film. She paired the elaborate outfit with spiked earrings and matching gold cuffs around her arms. Jolie completed the villainous look with dark eye makeup and black nail polish, rocking her long brown locks in a ponytail.

Pitt, meanwhile, looked dapper in an all-black Gucci suit and aviator sunglasses. The couple were joined by kids Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and Knox — who are now 15, 12, 11, 10 and 8, respectively. Vivienne, Knox’s twin sister, did not attend the Maleficent premiere, despite starring as a young Aurora in the movie.

Fast forward to present day, where Pitt and Jolie are in the early stages of a split. As Us Weekly previously reported, the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider actress filed for divorce from her husband of two years on September 19, citing irreconcilable differences.

Jolie is seeking sole physical custody of the pair’s six children and requested in divorce filings that Pitt receive only joint legal custody. The Fight Club actor, however, wants to fight for joint physical custody so the estranged duo can coparent, according to TMZ.

Shortly after the shocking news of the split broke, a source told Us Weekly exclusively that Pitt was blindsided by Jolie’s divorce filing, revealing, “Brad only found out about the divorce decision yesterday.”
