Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were one of the 'IT' couples back then. They dated for a long time and got married in 2014. However, in 2016, Angelina filed for divorce and it came through in 2019. In a recent interview, Angelina got candid as she opened up about her divorce with Brad Pitt and also shared that she was hurt when the actor worked with Harvey Weinstein.
The actress was asked by The Guardian to talk about the "first time she felt sufficiently disrespected in the industry to tell somebody to f**k off'. She responded by saying, "Em.. well, no surprise, Harvery Weinstein. I worked with him when I was young." Jolie revealed that she said no to The Aviator because he was involved in the project. She added that it was hard for her when Brad worked with him.
Jolie said that she had an argument with Brad when he accepted the offer to play one of the leads in Quentin Tarantino's film 'Inglourious Basterds', which was co-produced by Weinstein's Company. She also added that Pitt had reached out to Weinstein to bankroll his film 'Killing Them Softly', which the Weinstein Company also distributed. So, when the actor worked with him, Jolie had a tough time accepting it and it hurt her. "We fought about it. Ofcourse it hurt," said Jolie.
