Angelina Jolie claims her 'family situation' made it 'impossible' to direct films as divorce from Brad Pitt drags on

April 22, 2021

ANGELINA Jolie has claimed her “family situation” made it “impossible” to direct films as her divorce from Brad Pitt drags on. 

The former golden couple of Hollywood split in 2016 after 12 years together, with the Tomb Raider actress citing “irreconcilable differences” on the divorce papers. 

Angelina, 45, opened up about how her change in circumstances impacted her career in a candid interview. 

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the Maleficent star said: “I love directing, but I had a change in my family situation that’s not made it possible for me to direct for a few years. 

“I needed to just do shorter jobs and be home more, so I kind of went back to doing a few acting jobs. That’s really the truth of it.”

Ange's admission comes after it was revealed she and Brad have "each spent $1 MILLION" in their bitter five-year divorce battle and custody war over their six kids.

Brangelina shocked the world when they announced their split in 2016 after 12 years together. 

The sources added that the legal battle may go on for the next six years.

The former couple have not reached a settlement on how to split their multi-million dollar fortunes or the custody of their five underage kids.

Brad and Angelina share six children: Maddox, 19, Zahara, 16, Pax, 17, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12.

Us Weekly previously reported that Maddox appeared to take Angelina's side as he spoke during their lengthy custody battle.

However, their Ange’s relationship with Brad, 57, has been plagued with drama and scandal since the very beginning, ever since meeting on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith in 2004. 

The couple announced their split in September 2016 following an incident on a plane when Brad allegedly lost control of himself and clashed with son Maddox, 19.

An insider told the outlet: “Maddox has already given testimony as [an] adult in the ongoing custody dispute and it wasn’t very flattering toward Brad.

“He doesn’t use Pitt as his last name on documents that aren’t legal and instead uses Jolie. Maddox wants to legally change his last name to Jolie, which Angelina has said she doesn’t support.”

Following a review, the FBI and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family cleared the actor of any wrongdoing. 

Brad and Angelina's current trial will determine custody of their children and to divide their estate. 

Their divorce has been rough, while a source previously told The Sun Brad wants peace in their nasty custody battle. 

On March 12, the 45-year-old actress filed new court documents that alleged of "domestic violence."

The Sun confirmed that Angelina filed court papers to “offer proof and support" of "testimony regarding domestic violence.”

The actress made no indication the "domestic violence" matter mentioned in the documents was related to her estranged husband, while she also offered "proof" in support of their minor children testifying at trial.

At the 2020 SAG Awards Brad Pitt appeared to make fun of the once love of his life Angelina.

The actor won an award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, when he made a joke about his two-year marriage to Angelina Jolie.

Accepting the award, Brad joked: "This role was a bit of a stretch.

"Guy who gets high, takes his shirt off, doesn’t get along with his wife."

Jennifer, who is also an ex-wife of the actor, smiled in the crowd when the joke was made and reunited with Brad after the awards ceremony.

A source believes that Angelina will feel disrespected by Brad's actions.

They said at the time: “Angelina won’t be happy – it feels hugely disrespectful to her to make a joke out of their marriage problems in front of a room full of their peers. She’d never do that to him.

"And Brad’s very public reunion with Jen will also feel hurtful to her – it’s almost like, throughout their marriage, the public seemed to want Brad to get back with Jen.

"I think she’ll feel very disrespected by Brad’s speech.”
