As celebrity-curious people continue to watch the downward spiral of the relationship of Hollywood’s controversial ex-couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the latest news that broke out before Thanksgiving — of Shiloh requesting that their parents get together — left many people yearning for a positive development.
The child’s request, though not granted, brought to mind the family’s many happy moments together. Before putting the idealistic spin to rest, people can still relive the long history and charmed life of Brad and Angelina together. The Jolie-Pitt children and their parents were a lovely bunch that went to location shoots or stunning vacation spots like the Galapagos Islands after Angelina’s humanitarian trips outside the U.S.
A few years before the Hollywood A-list couple tied the knot in August 2014 at their estate in the South of France, Brad had said in interviews that he and his then long-time partner Angelina had gotten lots of pressure from their kids to get engaged.
It meant a lot to the children to see their parents happily married. They eventually did. Alas, it was not meant to last. When Angelina Jolie announced in September that she was divorcing Brad Pitt, and when the latest news of the children undergoing therapy became widespread, these developments saddened so many people from all corners of the world.
Recollection of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Very clearly Angelina and Brad were high-profile personalities who tried to “build a life under extraordinary circumstances,” bouncing from one part of the world to another to carry out their commitments. They embodied the perfect family — Brad was a successful actor who remained bankable, while Angelina had ventured into directing at the same time serving as U.N. Goodwill ambassador, yet they were often seen spending time with their brood.
The scrutiny with which media and fans gave the Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt divorce issues and other latest news, including how the two celebrities were handling the dark moments in their lives, had been quite intense. The latest news that Brad has been cleared of child abuse charges and that 10-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt (Angelina and Brad’s oldest biological daughter) requested her parents to be together for Thanksgiving sent a ray of hope in the hearts of fans everywhere. The reality is that the divorce matter is “as contentious as ever” and it looks like time will be the real healer.
