Angelina Jolie gave a shocking response when asked if she cheated with Brad Pitt while the latter was still married to Jennifer Aniston.
During her interview with Marie Claire, the “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” star condemned cheating and said that she has never slept with a married man. Jolie also talked about her dad, Jon Voight, who cheated on her mom, Marcheline Bertrand, during their marriage.
“To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive. I could not, could not look at myself in the mirror if I did that,” Jolie said.
The award-winning actress went on to say that she isn’t dating anybody at that time, which may have been slightly accurate because she and Pitt only made things official after their filming for “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” wrapped up.
Jolie also said that the next man that she would date would have to be the father of her adopted son, Maddox. The actress acknowledged that she has a major requirement for whoever she would date, but she and Pitt eventually ended up together.
Five months after Jolie’s interview, Jennifer Aniston and Pitt finalized their divorce. The “Friends” star sounded unfazed when she talked about her life as a single woman during her appearance on “Oprah.”
Meanwhile, Jolie’s statement about cheating may have not been 100 percent accurate. After all, her former bodyguard, Mark Behar, told US Weekly that he saw Jolie and Pitt making out in their trailers while they were on set.
Behar’s shocking revelation debunks Jolie’s claim that she has never slept with a married man. After all, Pitt was still legally married to Aniston when he started filming “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.”
In 2007, Jolie also told Vogue that she and Pitt spent a lot of time contemplating about what they wanted in life before they officially got into a relationship. But she also told The New York Times that she fell in love with Pitt while filming “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
