Three months after their fairytale wedding in France, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were witnessed having a blazing argument on their Sydney hotel balcony.
Just hours after reuniting in Australia for the first time in weeks due to their hectic separate schedules, Brad was seen throwing his arms up in a frustrated manner. Angelina meanwhile, appeared to be tired, upset and defeated.
Brad, 50, downed a Crown Lager at the early hour of 10am and the pair were both seen clutching cigarettes as their intense discussion raged on. Industry insiders tellWoman’s Daythat the tensions could be down to Ange’s hectic workload in the past year.
The couple, along with their youngest children, 6-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, were in town for the world premiere of WWII movie Unbroken, which director Angelina shot in NSW and Queensland.
By 6pm that same day, Brad and Ange had pasted on happy smiles for the cameras as their first red-carpet event as a married couple and greeted a throng of fans on the way to Sydney’s State Theatre.
Despite arriving together in a black Land Rover, they barely looked at each other at the event –Brad busied himself signing autographs, while Ange focused on speaking to the assembled media on the other side of the road.
When questioned about married life, Angelina kept her response to reporters vague: “It makes us happy to be married, if that makes any sense. I don’t think we needed it but it feels… he’s my husband.”
At one point, the pair – known in Hollywood circles for being publicity masterminds – crossed paths and briefly hugged and kissed. The move was described by one onlooker as “stiff”.
The pair barely looked at one anotehr during the Unbroken premiere as Brad busied himself signing autographs, while Ange focused on speaking to the assembled media.
Photographers found it tricky to snap the pair side by side, despite it being their first red-carpet event as a married couple. Even when they were in the same frame, Unbroken actors were strategically placed between them.
