Marriage and split from Brad Pitt
Jennifer had an extremely high-profile relationship with Brad Pitt, which was met with intense media scrutiny when they began dating in 1998. The couple tied the knot in July 2000 in Malibu and announced their separation in 2005. At the time, Brad was thought to have entered a relationship with his Mr and Mrs Smith co-star, Angelina Jolie, while he was still married, but the actress has since denied the rumours while admitting they did get close on set, telling Vogue: "I think we were both the last two people who were looking for a relationship. I certainly wasn’t. I was quite content to be a single mum with Mad. And I didn’t know much about exactly where Brad was in his personal life. But it was clear he was with his best friend, someone he loves and respects. And so we were both living, I suppose, very full lives."
Jennifer also previously told The Hollywood Reporter: "Nobody did anything wrong.... It was just like, sometimes things [happen]." Speaking about comments Angelina made about falling in love with Brad on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith, Jennifer told Vogue: "There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening. I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she couldn't wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool."
After her split from Brad, Jennifer was in a year-long relationship with her Break Up co-star, Vince Vaughn before settling down with The Leftovers actor Justin Theroux back in 2011. The pair were engaged in 2012 before tying the knot in August 2015. Sadly, the couple confirmed that they had decided to separate in a joint statement in February 2018, which read: "In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship. Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly. Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else's fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another." Jennifer's rep later shut down reports that Brad was supporting her through the split, calling the story a "complete fabrication".
Jennifer's biggest box office smashes include Marley & Me, which became the biggest Christmas Day box office smash by earning £37million over the weekend, while Bruce Almighty and The Break-Up were also huge successes. By 2010, the actress' films had hit over £1.2billion worldwide. She had also received a great deal of accolades, including nominations for Best Actress at the Golden Globes Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for her role in Cake, the Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead in The Good Girl, and a Primetime Emmy Award for Friends. Impressively, she also won Favourite Female Television Performer for four years running for her role as Rachel Green.
