We’ll always remember how Angelina Jolie described how she and Brad fell in love *tear*
We remember when Jolie and Pitt first fell in love on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith — and it feels like it all happened yesterday. When in reality, it was 12 years ago.
In the January 2006 issue of Vogue, Jolie described what it was like working with Pitt and subsequently falling deeply in love.
“I didn’t know much about exactly where Brad was in his personal life,” Jolie said. “But it was clear he was with his best friend, someone he loves and respects.”
So they both kept on living their lives and enjoying working together every day.
“Because of the film, we ended up being brought together to do all these crazy things, and I think we found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened,” she said. “I think a few months in I realized, ‘God, I can’t wait to get to work.’ … Anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. We just became kind of a pair.”
That is until they realized that they had developed feelings for each other that were way more than just friendship feelings.
“It took until, really, the end of the shoot for us, I think, to realize that it might mean something more than we’d earlier allowed ourselves to believe,” she added. “And both knowing that the reality of that was a big thing, something that was going to take a lot of serious consideration.”
But they didn’t act on their feelings right away. They remained “very, very good friends” until after Pitt and Jennifer Aniston separated in January 2005.
Jolie said that the time they spent getting to know each other wasn’t as exciting as people might think.
“We spent a lot of time contemplating and thinking and talking about what we both wanted in life and realized that we wanted very, very similar things,” she explained. “… And then life developed in a way where we could be together, where it felt like something we would do, we should do.”
It was Jolie’s 5-year-old son Maddox who really helped make their relationship happen. Maddox took it upon himself to call Pitt “dad”.
“It was amazing,” Jolie said. “We were playing with cars on the floor of a hotel room, and we both heard it and didn’t say anything and just looked at each other. So that was probably the most defining moment, when he decided that we would all be a family.”
