Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Were Married Before France Wedding

Angelina Jolie has just revealed a big secret about her wedding to Brad Pitt!

“Before the wedding in France with the kids, Brad and I were already married in California,” the 39-year-old actress shared in Corriere della Sera magazine’s January 10 issue. “As Americans, we couldn’t marry legally in France.”

She added, “One day I said to Brad, ‘Let’s meet up at 4:30 pm?’ I called a justice of the peace and we signed the documents.”

If you didn’t know, Angie and Brad exchanged vows at Chateau Miraval last August in France.

    Angelina Jolie on marriage to Brad Pitt: We love each other so much to be married twice

    Brad Pitt is teaching his children how to grow their own vegetables.

    The ‘Fury’ star, who has six children, Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with wife Angelina Jolie, got their whole family involved in building an organic vegetable patch and irrigation system at their home in Los Angeles, as he wants them to be aware of where their food comes from.

    A source told US OK! magazine: “He spent hours outside with the kids, showing them how to do things.

    “It’s incredible how he managed to juggle his crazy work schedule with being a father. He’s constantly coming up with new games and projects for them.

    “Brad had a very simple childhood in Missouri, so he’s determined to raise strong, emotionally sound kids who aren’t caught up in the crazy, vain world he and Angie live in.”

    The 51-year-old actor admitted last year that he loves being a farmer since buying a French winery, Miraval, in 2012

    He said at the time: “I’m a farmer now. I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October … I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land. [It is] the antithesis of the drive, the want, the need to get ahead indicative of life in Hollywood.”

    Selma Producer on Historical Accuracy Flap: “It’s Dismaying”

    David and Dede
    http://photos.vanityfair.com/2015/01/07/54ad98a448de990f76762d86_dede-gardner-selma.jpg

    It has become an awards-season tradition for Oscar hopefuls to find themselves under political fire, and this year’s prime target is Ava DuVernay’s Selma. The film, which depicts the civil-rights march organized by Martin Luther King Jr. in 1965 that led to the Voting Rights Act, has been questioned and criticized by historians and former colleagues of President Lyndon B. Johnson, largely for depicting Johnson as hesitant to back the Selma march. (In case it’s unclear that these pieces are explicitly aimed at awards campaigns, look at the last line of L.B.J. aide Joseph Califano Jr.’s piece: “The movie should be ruled out this Christmas and during the ensuing awards season.”)

    At a lunch in New York City yesterday, DuVernay doubled down on the argument she first expressed on Twitter: “I think everyone sees history through their own lens. [. . .] This is what I see. That should be valid. I’m not going to argue history. I could—but I won’t.”

    The very public debate is new for DuVernay, who has emerged from indie filmmaking into the brutal world of Oscar campaigning. But for Selma producer Dede Gardner, it’s an all-too-familiar brouhaha that, ultimately, amounts to a waste of time. “It seems to be part of the physics that happen around this time of year and around this season,” she said via phone on Tuesday. “I suppose it’s dismaying to me when so much attention and print is given to these stories as opposed to the stories of the films themselves or the stories of the filmmakers or the stories of the actors.”

    Gardner, with her Plan B partner Brad Pitt, also produced last year’s best-picture Oscar winner, 12 Years a Slave, which was subjected to similar questions of historical accuracy. “The difference,” Gardner says, “is that in this case there are people on all sides who are alive, who were there.” Several of those who were there have come out in support of Selma, including Gay Talese, who covered “Bloody Sunday” as a New York Times reporter and said of DuVernay at the lunch yesterday, “I was there, I saw it; she wasn’t there, but she got it. When I was seeing the film, I was seeing what I truly remembered.” Another is Andrew Young, an M.L.K. associate played by André Holland in the film, who said on MSNBC that it is “unfair for anybody to talk about credit” for the Selma march—while acknowledging that the film’s depiction of L.B.J. encouraging the F.B.I. to spy on King is unfair to the former president.

    Gardner says, “I don’t agree with what’s being said. I know Ava did her research, and I support the choices she made.”

    Neither DuVernay nor Gardner has argued the specifics of the film’s accuracy—whether or not Johnson really did hesitate on supporting the Selma march, or if he was aware at all of J. Edgar Hoover’s efforts to wiretap and intimidate King and his family. Instead, both expressed dismay at “the amount of energy and time that people have to then spend processing it and defending it or ignoring it,” in Gardner’s words. “Even if you don’t say anything it takes energy.” Or, as DuVernay said at yesterday’s lunch, “I want people to keep their eyes on the prize and focus on the beautiful positives of the film.”

    Gardner and the Plan B team have been working on Selma since 2007, and watched the film go through a series of directors, potential stars, and a complete screenplay overhaul once DuVernay was hired to direct in 2013. “We’d obviously had a hard time figuring this thing out,” Gardner says, until starDavid Oyelowo—who was hired by previous director Lee Daniels—suggested that they watch DuVernay’s Sundance award-winning film, Middle of Nowhere. “And she’s, as you can tell I’m sure, ferociously bright, really committed and understated, absolutely a filmmaker from the first word out of her mouth,” says Gardner. “And you think, O.K., let’s give it a shot.”

    Gardner says that hiring African-American directors Daniels and then DuVernay had nothing to do with any “litmus test” for telling the story of an African-American icon, because “you could say then I should only find a white male to direct a big action movie, which I don’t believe.” At the same time, she adds, “Of course, it made some sense. What made more sense, though, frankly, was Ava’s personal association with that part of the world and that era, and the fact that her father grew up in Lowndes County [Alabama]. It was a level of familiarity that was deep and profound and in her DNA. And I think that’s so evident in the movie and in the film.”

    Gardner won’t go so far as to claim that Plan B is unusually committed to diversity, but with 12 Years a Slave and Selma, plus an adaptation ofChimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah in the works, a trend is beginning to emerge. “Everyone needs voices, you know,” Gardner says. “The fact that [white men] are such a singular source of people making the most popular form of entertainment—that makes zero sense.”

    She continues: “If you care about history, which I think we do, then the bandwidth of story that is available to be told, and the bandwidth that is necessary to be thorough, just naturally encompasses people of all walks of life—all races, all cultures, all genders, all inclinations, all faiths. I think we come at it from that place.”

    Gardner describes the Plan B team as “nerdy students at heart,” who “all wish we could live in the stacks of a library.” And it’s with that attitude that Gardner finds the bright side in this latest historical dustup. “Maybe it prompts a more rigorous amount of time paid to history,” she says of the current Selma debate. “If that gets people reading and researching and looking and thinking, maybe it’s not ultimately a bad thing.”

    That pizza party dress was hideous from the front and a punchline from the back.

    Amal’s was very traditional, beautiful but not very inspired. I guess it’s always better to go elegant, timeless and classic than camp event tacky.

    I don’t believe this is a surprise to anyone. The France wedding was just the ceremony with friends and family to seal the deal in their French home where they will ultimately end up spending the rest of their lives together as husband and wife and family.

    Angelina Jolie: “We love each other enough to be married twice”

    Cover pic–
    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B67PtVmCYAEhRXC.png

    Twist. The star confesses to I woman that marriage in France was the second: he had already said yes to Brad Pitt in California. It does not end here. Feel how we held the (so far very private) honeymoon … Watch the private album of Angelina . The marriage of star of 2014

    “Louis, Louis Zamperini, I presentarglielo. It is extraordinary. Rivediamoci in the fall, for the release ofUnbroken : I would really like him to write the film. ” It was last April, during a meeting to Maleficent , where she – in the role of the icy witch – would later collect the Disney beauty of 240 million dollars. And Angelina Jolie, punctual, keeps the promise.

    The interview, eight months later, takes place in New York: it is here that Mrs. Pitt, after the wedding in late August at the Chateau Miraval, promotes the film that has just directed, the story of Zamperini (fact), the hero Olympic Italian-American officer and prisoner Japanese during the Second World War. A story (based on the novel by Laura Hillenbrand, published by Mondadori, while January 13 will be released by Piemme Live! The life you want , the autobiography of Louis) that has touched her deeply.

    Zamperini, unfortunately, is not with us; died in July, aged 97, and Ange – as they call it all – has tears in his eyes when he appointed him. Appears vulnerable, but he does not care: he talks about his work and, in fact, of herself, of her fears. I can not help but feel a strong sympathy. What a strange mix of opposites: he looks fragile, yet – tell the actors in this film hard and tiring – a strength and determination surprising. Strict with herself, is generous with others.

    At our meeting brings a sober gray flannel suit, her hair pulled. It is bright and smiling, albeit always with a hint of melancholy.

    The novel Unbroken opens with a quote from Walt Whitman: “What remains inside longer and more in depth? / Of fears strange, grim battle / or sieges tremendous what remains deeper?”.Of this film, what is left?
    I even thought about starting it with the verses … It’s up to you to choose what to keep your experiences, if what you have done more to suffer or the beauty of certain moments. When I think of Louis, I feel an immense gratitude. You with me, in the deepest sense, and I miss it; However, I remember especially the smile.

    If he thinks his life, what are the indelible moments?
    Those happy: they are the ones that I need to keep going. There is already so much sadness in the world and I prefer to remember the smiles. I present my mother’s eyes, his gentle soul, and our Christmases together, not the moment when she died. My children the moment when I first met them when I first saw Maddox and Pax and Zahara orphanage, Shiloh and Vivienne and Knox or in the hospital, with Brad near me. They are the moments that make life worth living.

    His meeting with Zamperini?
    I had already met so many amazing people in my work with the United Nations and the PSVI (Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict), but began to feel overwhelmed by the suffering of so many: I tried the strength to go on, to overcome this impasse . I read his story and his spirit, his message – you can not, you must not give up – I have moved and impressed. Louis made ​​me stronger, more motivated. It is no coincidence that, after meeting him, I have decided to deal with the mastectomy. “The obstacles you face bluntly, head-on,” she always said.

    Another theme of the film is forgiveness Louis forgive even those who tortured him. She knows how to forgive?
    I do not believe in the forgiveness of all, I think, if anything, in justice. This is not to be naive or holy souls, but I would not say to a woman who was raped to forgive, instantly. There must be a legitimate form of punishment for those who commit certain crimes. Later, however, to regenerate the soul, you have to know how to forgive.

    Teaches his children to forgive or not to forget?
    My son Maddox is cambodian and only a few weeks ago I started the process for the suffering inflicted on so many, as his parents and his grandparents, for crimes never before allowed by the state. How can you forget the facts that have not even been recognized? You should not seek revenge, it is true, but I’m not as strong as Louis.If someone would hurt my children, I would be able to forgive? No. But if I spent my life hating, I would certainly not a good mother.

    Louis had a deep faith. She?
    My mother was a devout Catholic, but I was never forced to follow the rules: I did, yes, communion, but rather guided me through his example, grace, kindness and generosity. It was however made ​​his way and told me: “If I do not go to church Sunday, but I’m here to laugh with my little girl, I’m sure that God is happy all the same.”

    She prays?
    I have a confession to make them. During the filming of Unbroken , thinking of Louis, I prayed. It was a strange experience: I had to shoot the last scenes of the film, I needed the sun and there was no more money. About a cyclone had hit, I did not know what to do. Then I prayed. Then I got behind the camera, and, suddenly, the sun came out! (laughs) You have to be open, in life …

    Immediately after the wedding, she directed her husband in By the Sea , the story of a marriage that falls apart. Not the plot ideal for a bride.
    (laughs) Yes, it is a history of clashes and conflicts of torque, but Brad and I are in a relationship strong, happy and then be able to explore the dark side of marriage. It’s a funny plot, a bit ‘crazy.

    When you wrote it?
    I threw down a few years ago in his free time, while I was waiting to go get the kids to school. I wrote it thinking about Brad and me, for fun, but it has remained there. When we decided to get married we felt it was the right time to take it out. In the end it was our honeymoon!

    She is also executive producer of Difret , the film representing Ethiopia in the Oscar race for best foreign film.
    I believe with all my strength in Difret . It is a true story, filmed with skill, and it is important for what it says about women’s rights, how to apply them and make them better. For me it was hard to have to do with this film because the girl kidnapped and raped looks a lot like my daughter Zahara. When I saw it, I spent the first half hour crying.

    And then?
    I ran home and I held her in his arms for an hour Zahara.

    We close with a flourish. Tell me about a memorable moment of his marriage. Something that has never told anyone.
    It was all lovely. The curious thing is that – as Americans – could not legally get married in France without a prior marriage in California. So, one day when I was working on the assembly of Unbroken , I say to Brad: “Honey, why do not we meet at four-thirty?”. I take a break for an hour, I convoke a justice of the peace. I run at home, we sign the documents, we look and we say: we did it! We were happy and we laughed … It seemed romantic!

    And after that?
    We kept secret; I’m back to work without a ring on her finger. Then, of course, the real wedding was the one with the boys; But we were already married. And that she has not told anyone? No, I swear, only to her!

  • Observer2

    Well, this is just going to p!ss off Tam$hit even more so than they already are at life and make ring a ding a dumb dumb, even more dumb.

    This isn’t news. When it was confirmed that they had a wedding in France, it was said that they were married under CA. law, which would mean, that they got married in CA. LOL

    I’d venture to guess that they might have done it when his parents were in town when they went to Santa Barbara for Maddox’s b-day and we saw Brad and his dad go to a test screening of Fury.

    Oh and it was Angelina that pulled the trigger? She has said that they had almost done it in Australia.

    But, but, I thought she didn’t want to marry him? LMAO!

  • Laughing

    Then why is this news, why are you celebrating, did you not believe it?

  • Laughing

    Yeah, okay. They’re not interested. Got it?

  • Laughing

    Oh dear. Their fans didn’t believe they were married.

  • Dame Angelina

    I just adore that any Dame Angelina news knock any pretenders and coat-tailers out of the front page.
    THAT, my dears, is absolute power as demonstrated by the Dame.
    Certainly for the Dame, no “uncool” revelations of some heretofore unrevealed 20-year old departed love who was “the one” (opening this departed one’s wife and kids ! to unnecessary media attention).
    NOOOOO.
    The Dame simply affirms and confirms verifiable events.
    Oh dear, what a delightful situation!

    Gardner won’t go so far as to claim that Plan B is unusually
    committed to diversity, but with 12 Years a Slave and Selma, plus an
    adaptation ofChimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah in the works, a trendis beginning to emerge. “Everyone needs voices, you know,” Gardner says. “The fact that [white men] are such a singular source of people making the most popular form of entertainment—that makes zero sense.”

    ======================================================

    I think Dede put all of that as well as I’ve seen anyone do it and she’s absolutely correct.

    I’m glad that Plan B has such a woman as Dede helping to guide the ship. She’s a talented producer, she gets it and Brad, Dede and Jeremy have always championed films made by women, about women, the leads of the films, are women, etc.
