From 2005 to 2016, the pair we affectionately dubbed “Brangelina” were the most-talked-about couple in Hollywood. From their flawless looks to their Oscar-winning talent, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were thought to be the epitome of #RelationshipGoals.
But then the utterly unexpected happened just two years after the pair finally got hitched in 2014. Jolie filed for divorce and left us all wondering what it was that destroyed their once solid relationship. Unfortunately, Jolie tends to keep any discussion about her kids and her relationship with ex-husband Brad Pitt entirely under wraps. So it is a rare event when she decides to open up about her personal life. Well, it turns out that she has decided to do just that in a recent podcast interview. You may know that Jolie has turned her hand to other projects including movie directing. One of the most recent movies that she worked on is First They Killed My Father which was released on Netflix last September. It turns out that the movie was pretty well received by the critics. So in a recent interview on The Hollywood Reporter‘s podcast Awards Chatter, she discussed the movie and a load of other juicy topics in great detail. Incredibly, Jolie even opened up about how her relationship with Brad Pitt broke down and contrary to what you may have thought, it had a little something to do with her double mastectomy amongst other things… Back in 2013, a then 37-year-old Angelina Jolie’s health problems were highly publicised. Her family has a history of breast cancer which really alarmed the mom-of-six, so she decided to get a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of developing the disease. Her own mother, Marcheline Bertrand, had breast cancer which she managed to fight, but, unfortunately, she later died from ovarian cancer. Jolie made the incredibly brave decision to undergo a preventive double mastectomy after finding out she had inherited the BRCA gene, a faulty gene which meant that she had an 87% chance of developing cancer. Just two years after the double mastectomy, doctors told Jolie that test results were showing signs of ovarian cancer in her system. As a result, she made the brave decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes surgically removed. At the time, it was reported that her husband, Brad Pitt, was nothing but supportive. However, we could never really know what was going on behind closed doors. According to the Maleficent actress, her health scares were putting an irrevocable strain on her marriage. “I’ve had many, many extraordinary very fortunate things happen and it’s also been many things over the years that had been challenging. So that wasn’t a particular time when I wrote it… I had my mastectomy right before I had Unbroken,” the actress revealed. “Over the span of that decade, I did lose my mother. I did have my mastectomy, and I did then have an ovarian cancer scare and have that surgery as well, and other things of course that happened in life that you go through.” In 2015, Jolie and Pitt worked together on the movie By The Sea in an attempt to “heal” their marriage which was threatening to break down. “A piece of art can be something that’s healing or something that’s difficult. I don’t know.” “I’m glad we did that film because we did explore something together,” she said. “Whatever it was maybe it didn’t solve certain things, but we did communicate something that needed to be communicated to each other.” “We had met working together and we worked together well… I wanted us to do some serious work together… I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate. In some ways it was, and in some ways, we learned some things.” “But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on and it wasn’t because of the [movie]. It was something that we were dealing… things happen for different reasons, and things… why did I write that exact piece? Why did we feel that way when we made it? I’m not sure.” Needless to say, Angelina Jolie has gone through a tough few years. Fearing for your health when you have young children must be incredibly difficult – especially if that ultimately leads to the breakdown of your marriage Unfortunately, anyone who knows anything about Jolie’s early life will be aware that she has had to contend with a great deal of emotional pain and numerous setbacks throughout her life. Check out her story in the video below: We wish Jolie, her children and, of course, Brad Pitt the best of luck for their future health and happiness.
John Travolta has got the moves to ‘Grease’ 40 years on
That belt loop hip shake from 1978’s Grease has surely been replicated countless times in schools, dances, and in front of mirrors.
Wednesday marked 40 years since the film premiered in New York City, and John Travolta just so happened to be on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, although to promote his upcoming film Gotti.
The shake, which Travolta calls the “four corners,” was introduced when Grease’s choreographer needed a step at the end of “You’re The One That I Want.”
Turns out Travolta still has some of those moves, by the way.
Alicia Silverstone explains why she has Donald Trump’s number in her phone
“Alicia Silverstone and Donald Trump exchanged numbers about 10 years ago. But, before you jump to conclusions, you need to hear the full account of what happened.
On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the Clueless star said that she and Trump had a “date to talk about solar panels” and that his name and number are still in her phone to this very day.
So, what exactly happened? “I was on one of the other talk shows in the daytime talking about solar panels and silk milk… and he [Trump] said he was really interested and we exchanged numbers so that we could continue this conversation about solar panels,” she said. “So I met with him.”
Serena Williams ‘Wakanda-inspired Catsuit’ that makes her feel like a superhero
Serena Williams is already a superhero to each and every one of us. But, as it turns out, she also has a Black Panther-inspired catsuit which makes her feel like a “warrior princess”.
After Williams beat Kristya Pliskova at the French open at Stade Roland Garros, Paris on Tuesday, she spoke about the meaning behind her black bodysuit.
“It feels like this suit represents all the women that have been through a lot mentally, physically, with their body to come back and have confidence and to believe in themselves,” she said following her victory on Tuesday, per the Guardian.
Williams just made her return to the sport nine months after the birth of her daughter. She suffered complications at the time of the birth due to a pulmonary embolism.
In addition to being a symbol of confidence and empowerment, the suit also reminds Williams of Black Panther.
“I call it, like, my Wakanda-inspired catsuit,” Williams said. “We designed it way before the movie, but still, it kind of reminds me of that.”
Not only that, Williams says when she dons her black bodysuit, she feels “like a warrior princess.”
“I always wanted to be a superhero and it’s kind of my way of being a superhero,” she said.
