As Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie co-starred as assassins-cum-lovers in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the couple simply refuted rumors of a ‘dastardly affair’ between them and insisted that things turned out to be physical following Brad’s separation from Jen in January 2005.
Led by the mutual realization
When Angelina was interviewed by Vogue the very next year, she remarked, “It took until, really, the end of the shoot for us, I think, to realise that it might mean something more than we’d earlier allowed ourselves to believe. And both knowing that the reality of that was a big thing, something that was going to take a lot of serious consideration. We spent a lot of time contemplating and thinking and talking about what we both wanted in life and realized that we wanted very, very similar things. And then we just continued to take time. We remained very, very good friends – with this realisation – for a long time. And then life developed in a way where we could be together, where it felt like something we would do, we should do.”
Backed by underground agents
On the contrary, Angelina’s ex-bodyguard, Mark Behar alleged that a secret network of aides deployed on the movie’s set helped the pair exchange notes which were ‘sexual in content’.
Speaking to Us Weekly, Mark told, “[Angelina] and Brad were constantly laughing and flirting with each other and acting like two school kids who had the hots for each other, and it was so cute. I caught them several times in each other’s trailers making out. I wasn’t shocked at all when they got married years later.”
Luring the opposite actor
Moreover, a couple of on-set insiders claimed that Angelina played the role of temptress behind the scenes who secretly lifted her flesh-colored underwear in one romantic scene. The source reported, “In the end, she shunned the suit and climbed in bed with him naked! It’s the biggest thing we all remember from that film”.
