Even before Brad Pitt and Angeline Jolie became one of the most happening couples of Hollywood, the actor and his former wife Jennifer Aniston was considered to be a golden couple in the showbiz industry. There has been widespread curiosity about how Pitt and Jen met for the first time. 

Although their marriage lasted for just five years, the Troy actor and the Friends alum are still regarded as one of the most classic couples Hollywood ever had. While their relationship always grabbed eyeballs, fans have been always curious to know about specific details related to their romance.

People want to know how their romance began and where the duo met for the first time. While the pair had reportedly begun dating in 1998, they met around four years ago for the first time. 

Jen had revealed that their first meeting took place in 1994 as their agents happened to be friends. At that time, the actress regarded Pitt as a sweet and normal guy from Missouri.

While Pitt was dating Gwyneth Paltrow at that time, Aniston was in a relationship with actor Tate Donovan but broke off with them. Their agents decided to play Cupid and sent them on a date, Showbiz Cheat Sheet reports. 

The Morning Show star had spoken about her first acting with the Fight Club actor in 2004 while being interviewed by Diane Sawyer. Jennifer Aniston said she took an instant liking towards Brad Pitt. 

Jen remembered that they both liked each other on their first date. She felt that was sort of “weird.” The actress recalled that the evening was “fun” and very easy for both of them. 

While they officially became a couple after that, the duo decided to keep their relationship low-key for a few months before making it public. They made their first joint appearance at the red carpet event of Emmy Awards in 1999.

The couple looked madly in love while walking hand in hand. Around a year later, they tied the knot in a grand wedding in Malibu. The duo had invited 200 guests and the wedding also included a gospel choir, four bands, and 50,000 flowers. 

Their wedding became one of the most discussed events of the year. However, Pitt and Aniston declared their split in 2005.

They made a joint declaration to People magazine at that time. The pair mentioned that they decided to formally separate after being together for seven years. 

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt also said that the decision to split was taken after detailed consideration. They declared that they will continue to remain good friends even after parting ways.
