Angelina Jolie opened up about her split from husband Brad Pitt in a Vanity Fair profile published Wednesday, saying that she and her children are still “healing” from the events that led up to the split.
In a lengthy interview Jolie said that things became “difficult” in their marriage last summer, but noted that their lifestyle wasn’t a factor in the split.
“That was not the problem,” Jolie said.
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016. Though the pair married in 2014, they had been together since 2004. She cited “irreconcilable differences” in the divorce papers, listing September 15 as their official date of separation.
In the Vanity Fair interview, Jolie said that her six children had been “very brave” following the split, but added that the healing process is not yet complete.
“We’re all just healing from the events that led to the filing ,” Jolie said. “They’re not healing from divorce. They’re healing from some… from life, from things in life.”
