It wasn’t love at first sight for Brad and Angelina. At least if it was, there was nothing that either of them could do about it. The two became close while co-starring in the romantic action film Mrs. & Mrs. Smith, however, Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time. Once Brad realized that he was developing feelings for Angelina, he filed for divorce, which many Aniston fans were not happy with.

Jolie claims that nothing happened between them before Brad’s divorce. She commented that “To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive.”
