She was with Brad Pitt from 2005 until 2016, when she filed for divorce after two years of marriage.

And in a new interview with The Telegraph, Angie opened up about her split, saying:

It’s been difficult. I don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.


Angelina also spoke about her health. Both her grandmother and her mother died of ovarian cancer at a young age (her grandmother at 45, her mother at 56). Her mother also had breast cancer, so Angelina decided to get a double mastectomy and her ovaries removed in the past few years:

So much in life you just focus on how much worse it could be. And I am so happy I don’t have cancer, and that if I do get it, it will be delayed for a few years.

Since the split with Brad, Angie has been living in Los Angeles with her kids and taking cooking classes. She told The Telegraph that "the children have been amazing":

It’s been so moving to see how much they have helped each other and how much they have helped me. They have really come into their own and they are finding themselves and their voices. I know that they will have each other for life and it gives me great peace to know the day I pass away that they will take care of each other.
