Brad Pitt made a confession about Angelina Jolie to Jennifer Aniston before the pair divorced.

When Pitt and Aniston married in 2000, the world was living for the Hollywood power couple.

However, the fairytale couldn’t last, and the pair ended up splitting in 2005.

And now, it’s been revealed that the Fight Club star made a confession about Angelina Jolie to Aniston before the couple split…

Pitt and Jolie met on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith, and quickly, their on-screen romance became all too real.

They got together soon afterwards, eventually marrying in 2014 before filing for divorce just two years later.

However, it seems as though the couple’s affair did not come as too much of a surprise to Aniston.

In fact, it’s been revealed that Pitt made a confession to Jen about his feelings with Jolie – even before the pair split up!

An insider told People magazine at the time (per the Mirror): “They gradually lost sight of themselves as individuals.

“And despite their nice lifestyle and having everything they might want, they weren’t happy. They lost a sense of self.”

Their statement, released in January 2005, read: “We would like to announce that after seven years together we have decided to formally separate.

“For those who follow these sorts of things, we would like to explain that our separation is not the result of any of the speculation reported by the tabloid media.

“This decision is the result of much thoughtful consideration. We happily remain committed and caring friends with great love and admiration for one another.”

Aniston went on: “It’s just complicated… You’re two people continually evolving, and there will be times when those changes clash. There are all these levels of growth – and when you stop growing together, that’s when the problems happen.”

However, it seems as though things may have been a little bit more scandalous than the couple initially presented.

A confession that Pitt made to Aniston about Jolie before the pair split has gone viral.

“How did that work out for ya, Brad?” one fan jokes.

While another praises Aniston’s Friends co-star, Courteney Cox, writing: “Thanks for your honesty on behalf of others, Courteney!”

Shockingly, Cox claims that Aniston was aware something could be going on between her husband and the Tomb Raider actress.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the Scream actress claimed: “I don’t think he started an affair physically, but I think he was attracted to her.

“There was a connection, and he was honest about that with Jen. Most of the time, when people are attracted to other people, they don’t tell.

“At least he was honest about it. It was an attraction that he fought for a period of time.”

However, it seems Aniston hasn’t harboured any bad blood.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Aniston said: “I think it’s time people stop with that petty B.S. and just start celebrating great work and stop with the petty kind of silliness.

“I think that’s slowly coming to an end. I really do. It’s just tiresome and old. It’s like an old leather shoe. Let’s buy a new pair of shiny shoes.”
