Angelina Jolie has spoken out for the first time since she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt last year. The actor was speaking to the BBC in Cambodia before a screening of “First They Killed My Father”, a real-life story of the Khmer Rouge genocide told through the eyes of a child and directed by Jolie.
When speaking about the her divorce:
“It was a very difficult time,” Jolie said, appearing visibly upset. “Many people find themselves in this situation … My whole family have all been through a difficult time. My focus is my children, our children.”
She added: “We are and forever will be a family and so that is how I am coping. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer.”
