This was one of the biggest cheating scandals we’ve seen in recent times. It was so infamous that “Team Jen” and “Team Angelina” t-shirts were created (was anyone actually “Team Angelina?”)
Angelina will forever go down as the woman who broke up our favorite couple of the ’90s and made us turn our backs on love.
Brad and Angelina met in 2004 on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and there was no denying their chemistry. Angelina later told Vogue, “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. I think a few months in I realized, ‘God, I can’t wait to get to work.’
She continued, “Whether it was shooting a scene or arguing about a scene or gun practice or dance class or doing stunts—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. And 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. And both knowing that the reality of that was a big thing, something that was going to take a lot of serious consideration.”
Ouch! Way to throw it in Jen’s face, Angelina! This is why I’ll always save my “Team Jen” t-shirt.
Brad and Jen confirmed they were splitting by 2005.
