In a recent interview with Nightline, Angelina Jolie talked about her happy relationship with Brad Pitt. Together now for more than five years, since Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston, to many people it’s obvious Angelina Jolie is much better for Brad Pitt than Aniston ever was, which you can see in every aspect of their lives together.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Are Part of a Family – While crazy Jennifer Aniston fans the world over keep coming up with stories about “Brad and Angelina splitting”, five years later the couple are still together and still in love. Unlike when Pitt was with Aniston, and it was just the two of them in a somewhat self-involved relationship, with Jolie, Brad Pitt is part of a large, loving family. With six children, three adopted and three natural children, when photos of Pitt with his family are released to the news media it’s obvious how happy he is.
Angelina Jolie Wanted Children – According to what Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston said at the time of their divorce, Brad wanted children and Jennifer didn’t. Just getting her movie career started after the end of “Friends”, Aniston wanted to concentrate on her career, whereas Brad wanted a family. Then along came Angelina Jolie, they fell in love and, now, five years and six children later, Brad Pitt has the family he always wanted. Aniston and Pitt were simply in different places in their lives and Pitt finally found someone who wanted the same things he did.
Brad Pitt Involved in Humanitarian Issues – Of course it could just be as a result of age but, since Brad Pitt became involved with Angelina Jolie, he’s also become involved in more national and international humanitarian issues. Before meeting Pitt, Angelina Jolie had been working with UNHCR as a Goodwill Ambassador since filming ‘Tomb Raider’ in Cambodia. She’s also well known in the world of refugee aid groups, where she’s raised millions of dollars to assist refugees in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Brad Pitt soon followed Angelina’s lead, working with AIDS organizations and refugee organizations worldwide, then, in 2006, with Angelina, he founded the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which was set up to assist humanitarian organizations all over the world. Both Pitt and Jolie now donate millions of dollars a year from their salaries to the foundation.
From a world with Jennifer Aniston, which seemed “me-oriented”, Brad Pitt has realized what an enormous impact he can have on people far less fortunate than himself. He now spends a lot of time, both alone and with Jolie, traveling to other continents to give help, raise money and raise awareness of issues from AIDS orphans to the earthquake in Haiti, refugees in Dafur to global health issues and more.
In fact, if you have to ask whether Angelina Jolie is better for Brad Pitt than Jennifer Aniston was, you only have to listen to what Jolie herself says. When asked what keeps them together she said, “You also must be really interested in each other and have a really, really wonderful, exciting time together. We do. Brad and I love being together. We enjoy it. We need it, and we always find that special time. We stay connected. We talk about it. It’s very important.”
And, when “Nightline” co-anchor Cynthia McFadden in an interview with Jolie this week asked her “Is Brad Pitt the love of your life……do you see growing old together?” Jolie responded immediately. “Of course. We wouldn’t have had six children if we didn’t see that”.
That just about says it all.
