||Five years on the Jennifer-Brad marriage disintegrated while the Mr & Mrs Smith co-stars denied any developing intimacy.
Carefully distant in public, Brad and Angelina were increasingly spotted shopping, holidaying, and house-hunting together.
"To be intimate with a married man when my own father cheated on my mother is not something I could forgive," Angelina insisted in May. "I could not, could not look at myself in the morning if I did that."
June brought the infamous W magazine cover – apparently Brad's idea – showing the twosome in a fantasy family pose. "There's a sensitivity chip missing," was Jennifer's response.
Brad and Jen's divorce, finalised in October, was nothing to do with Angelina, he insisted. Jen apparently accepts that the relationship only intensified after their own separation.
