Jen’s Revenge! Best Internet Reactions to Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Split

#TeamAniston. Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after over a decade together and two years of marriage, Us Weekly confirmed on Tuesday, September 20. While some social media users are mourning the end of one of Hollywood’s most celebrated love stories, many can’t forget the complicated origin of Brangelina’s epic love affair.

As fans are well aware, the Fight Club actor, 52, and the Oscar-winning actress, 41, met on the 2004 set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. At the time, Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston. After the Friends alum, 47, reportedly discovered that her then-husband was cheating on her with his sexy costar, she called it quits on their five-year marriage. Months later, Pitt and Jolie went public with their controversial romance.

During a now-legendary 2008 interview with Vogue, Aniston — who married Justin Theroux in August 2015 — broke her silence about the scandal. “That stuff about how she couldn’t wait to get to work every day?” she said, referring to former comments made by Jolie to W magazine. “That was really uncool.”
