In real life, Angelina and Brad have been engaged for several years and have six children together. They once famously announced that they would not marry until there was marriage equality for all in the US.
They met in 2005 on the set of spy thriller Mr. and Mrs Smith. Brad was at the time in a high profile marriage to Friends star Jennifer Aniston but they soon announced their plans to divorce following the release of the film.

The largest ever to be held on the subject of sexual violence in war, Brad and human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, who is engaged to George Clooney, a close friend of Angelina and Brad, were also both in attendance to support Angelina.
In June, the 39-year-old was made an honorary Dame for her contribution to fighting sexual violence.
The 39-year-old said the award meant a lot to her: "To receive an honour related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to.
"Working on the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative and with survivors of rape is an honour in itself," she added. "I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine."
