Angelina Jolie is finally opening up about her divorce from husband Brad Pitt. Last September, they announced their split after 12 years together.
In a Vanity Fair profile, the actress and director discussed moving into a new home with her six children — Maddox, 15; Pax, 13; Zahara, 12; Shiloh, 11; and Vivienne and Knox, 9.
"It's just been the hardest time, and we're just kind of coming up for air," Jolie said. "[This house] is a big jump forward for us, and we're all trying to do our best to heal our family."
Jolie filed for divorce suddenly last September and requested sole custody of their children. There were reports of a physical and verbal altercation between Pitt and Maddox, and Los Angeles Children and Family Services investigated Pitt before clearing him.
Jolie revealed that her marriage began to crumble while she was directing "First They Killed My Father" in Cambodia last summer.
"Things got bad," the 42-year-old star said. "I didn't want to use that word ... Things became 'difficult.'"
Pitt himself acknowledged to GQ Style in May that he was "boozing too much."
Jolie also opened up about being diagnosed with Bell's Palsy, a result of facial nerve damage that caused one side of her face to droop. Acupuncture helped her recover.
"Sometimes women in families put themselves last, until it manifests itself in their own health," she said.
