January 2005: Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston Announce Separation
After nearly five years together, Pitt and Aniston announce that they are separating. Over the next few months, paparazzi will swarm Mr. & Mrs. Smith re-shoots in Los Angeles, only to discover Pitt and Jolie's trailers are inside the set. Not long after, the love triangle nearly combusts at the National Association of Theatre Owners' ShoWest convention, where Pitt and Jolie promote Mr. & Mrs. Smith hours before Anniston receives the Female Star of the Year award. On March 25th, 2005, Anniston officially files for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.
