Angelina Jolie has been headlining news almost every day over her estranged relationship with Brad Pitt. They share 6 children together – Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne, Knox and Zahara. However, the past few days have witnessed the Salt actress’ first marriage with Jonny Lee Miller into the limelight. Did you know it was just a casual relation with no plans to go to the extent of wedding?
Yes, you heard that right! Angelina Jolie herself revealed about it in an old interview revealing that she and first husband Jonny Lee Miller met on the sets of Hackers. While filming the movie, the two started romancing each other behind doors. However, the plan was to bid goodbye as the film wraps up. Clearly, that didn’t happen!
Talking about their secret relationship in an interview with Pearce, Angelina Jolie said, “Jonny and I were having a relationship during the movie, but thought that once the film was over we would say goodbye and go our separate ways. I had never had an on-set romance. But I had reached the stage in my life where I didn’t care. We were in a hotel and I am sure we were booked in rooms opposite on purpose. I have heard that happens a lot on film sets if the characters are supposed to be romantically linked.”
The actress further revealed that she was scared if their relationship sunk, that would largely affect the film. “The risk was that we had a relationship and things could have gone badly – and that would have been bad for the film.”
The actress back then also revealed how in no time their relationship turned into a wedding, as she said she was wearing leather pants when Johnny Lee Miller “stuck a veil on me at the last second and put a garter on the pants. We wake up in the morning and think, ‘What can we do? Let’s get tattooed. We seem to have them all over the place. Jonny is pretty wild. It is good when you are with someone you love and can feel safe with.”
That sounds like a pretty wild relation. Unfortunately, things didn’t last long and Angelina Jolie and Jonny Lee Miller called it quits post 18 months of togetherness.
