Angelina Jolie’s Relationships and Children
Angelina Jolie’s relationships have always brought her immense media attention. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have recently separated legally, but their relationship was probably the most famous in the world when it was ongoing.
Her first famous relationship was with Jonny Lee Miller. After meeting on the sets of the movie ‘Hacker’, the couple fell in love and later married in 1996. But for unknown reasons, their relationship culminated in 1999 when they both decided to leave each other on good terms.
The second relationship was with a female model called Jenny Shimizu. Angelina Jolie has already confirmed that she is a bisexual, and this was her most popular lesbian relationship. She has even confessed that if she wasn’t married to Miller at the time, she would have definitely tied the nuptials with Shimizu.
In 1999, Jolie met Billy Bob Thornton. It was probably her most sensational relationship, as no one quite understood the reason behind their chemistry.
But from the look of it, the relationship was quite intense as the couple even wore vials of each other’s blood to show their devotion to each other. They married in 2000, but the romance frizzled out eventually and the couple divorced in 2003.
One of the most intriguing and famous Angelina Jolie relationships was with Brad Pitt. It was considered controversial because Pitt’s affair with Jolie was considered to be the reason behind his split with his then wife Jennifer Aniston.
Before Pitt’s relationship with Jolie, Aniston-Pitt was considered the hottest couple by Hollywood fans from across the globe. Therefore, when Pitt and Jolie had an affair on the sets of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and then later married in 2014, it became huge news for the public.
Angelina Jolie had three biological children with Brad Pitt, but she has also adopted three children from different parts of the world. The adopted Angelina Jolie children are Maddox Jolie-Pitt (from Cambodia), Pax Jolie-Pitt (from Vietnam) and Zahara Jolie-Pitt (from Ethiopia).
The biological Angelina Jolie kids are Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, Knox Jolie-Pitt and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt. While Shiloh is the eldest biological child, Knox and Vivienne are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie twins.
