A few years back, the media was all buzz with the news of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt split. The reason for the split being the sexy and hot, Angelina Jolie. Though, the news came as shock to the fans and friends of the couple, not many know that Aniston ordered Pitt to leave their Beverly Hills home after he admitted that he was in love with Angelina Jolie, reveals a new sensational book.
Titled Confidential: The Life of Secret Agent Turned Hollywood Tycoon, Arnon Milchan, who produced Mr and Mrs Smith goes on to make the revelation in the book about his life as a producer and businessman tied to the arms trade.
Giving a sneak peek into the reality, he recalls how he originally cast Pitt and Nicole Kidman as the married spy couple in his film. But, how later Brad pulled out of the project due to a lack of chemistry, but was instantly smitten by Jolie, when she was finally roped in as the leading lady. Brad even called him to say he was happy to play Mr to her Mrs.
On hearing the truth, Aniston filed for divorce in March 2005. But it was a tumultuous few months of rumours and denials before she reached that point.
He recounts: 'At first, Jen didn't believe he was involved with Angelina. She started asking around but no one would tell her anything because they were loyal to Brad, so she asked him point blank. He denied it.'
However, Brad and Jennifer went to the Caribbean with best friends Courteney Cox and David Arquette on a pre-planned trip, but the strain was too much and Brad confessed.
'He eventually admitted he was in love with Angelina. Jen was furious and threw him out,' authors Meir Doran and Joseph Gelman write.
'Brad drove each day to the set, and everywhere else, on a motorcycle and he wore a wraparound helmet with a tinted visor so no one would recognize him. He stayed with me for the duration of filming,' Milchan is quoted as saying.
On January 7, 2005, the pair announced their split.
