For years now, Jennifer Aniston has been cast in a role that she’s found very hard to shake off: that of the “wronged woman.” And not only did she have to endure her husband Brad Pitt leaving her for Angelina Jolie in 2005, but she then had to put up with endless questions from the press about the situation. Now, though, an old interview with Aniston has resurfaced, and it reveals just how she found peace and contentment during such a stressful time in her life.
Jennifer Aniston first met Brad Pitt in 1998, reportedly because her agent had arranged for her to have a blind date with him. And on the surface, at least, the pair appeared to be a good match; both were young, good-looking and famous, after all. For a while, too, Aniston and Pitt appeared to be loved-up – they even made it to the altar in July 2000.
The Aniston-Pitt wedding was in fact a high-profile, million-dollar affair. Cameron Diaz, Edward Norton, Salma Hayek and many other A-listers attended, along with most of Aniston’s Friends co-stars – only Matt LeBlanc couldn’t make it. These starry guests and more were entertained with a gospel choir, a Melissa Etheridge performance and a fireworks display.
