Courteney Cox, girlfriend of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, announced that when they announced their separation in January 2005, they both refused to admit that it was Angelina Jolie who had turned their lives upside down.
According to the “Mirror” newspaper, they said in a statement, “For those who follow these kinds of rumors, we would like to make it clear that our separation was not the result of any speculation reported by the popular media,” referring to rumors that Brad had approached a woman, and Mrs. Smith participated in the acting.Newspapers reported that Brad Pitt had been struggling for a year, and the real reason for the split was because Brad and Jane’s busy work schedules made it nearly impossible to maintain a common life.
The problem was the constant pressure to be the ideal couple, when in reality they were just a normal husband and wife struggling with the stress of life.
A close friend of the two said, according to People magazine, “They gradually lost sight of themselves as individuals, and despite their sweet lifestyle and having everything they wanted, they weren’t happy, they lost their sense of self.”
A mutual friend of the ex-couple’s ex-husband also claimed in Hollywood that, Brad is the one who stopped having children and not Jane – as it was so roughly traded at the time, and when Jane struggled romantically at the end of 2004, she said that Brad – who was portraying Mr. and Mrs. Smith at that point – “He wasn’t there for me.”
