Brad Pitt fell in love with Angelina Jolie on the sets of Mr & Mrs Smith. He was happily married to his best friend, Jennifer Aniston, but reportedly couldn’t resist the ignited sparks with his co-star. Of late, there have been a lot of reports regarding their children Maddox and Zahara dropping their father’s surname. Scroll below for a sweet memory from the past.

As per several reports, the eldest son of Brangelina does not use his father’s surname on documents that aren’t legal and instead uses only ‘Jolie.’
Recently, Zahara was inducted into a sorority at Spelman College recently. In a viral video, she was seen introducing herself as ‘Zahara Marley Jolie.’ While many praised her confident act, most noticed that she wasn’t using Brad Pitt’s last name either. But way before all the drama began, the Bullet Train actor once expressed his love for his adopted children.
