Over 10 years ago, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie went public with their relationship. Although sadly their union has come to an end now that Angelina has filed for divorce, it doesn't change the fact that so many incredible things have happened between the couple over the last decade, including their surprise wedding in 2014, multiple additions to their family, and plenty of professional achievements. Take a look back at Brad and Angelina's love — and family — through the years.
To celebrate the long-awaited opening of the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo will sponsor a black-tie inaugural gala alongside cochairs Brad Pitt, Robert Redford, Jamie Tisch, and Wallis Annenberg. The evening will not only play host to a star-studded crowd, it will also shine light on a series of events including a performance on the Goldsmith Theater stage and an exclusive showing of Ferragamo's Spring 2014 collection.
The new cultural hub transformed an entire Beverly Hills city block, with the historic 1934 Beverly Hills Post Office and new Goldsmith Theater integral parts of the transformation. And with Ferragamo's deep-rooted ties to Los Angeles — the iconic shoe designer opened his first shop in Hollywood almost 100 years ago — and a worldwide commitment to the arts, it made perfect sense to sponsor the inaugural gala.
The gala is scheduled for mid-October, but the festivities have already started. A look at Ferragamo's cocktail preparty plus a sneak peek at the center here.
Angelina Jolie held a press conference in Jordan today in honor of World Refugee day. On Tuesday she met with refugees along Jordan's border with Syria and according to the UN Refugee Agency, spoke with the refugees and took notes as they detailed their struggles while escaping the Syrian war. While talking with families who had lost loved ones Angie paused to comfort them, saying, "We can't know your pain." She later said that the purpose of the event was to draw attention to the flood of refugees coming out of war-torn Syria. Angelina also met up with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, and toured Jordan's Za'atari refugee camp.
Angelina Jolie's appearance in the Middle East comes hot on the heels of her trip around Europe with Brad Pitt and their children while Brad promoted his new film, World War Z, earlier this month. She walked the red carpet with Brad at his premieres in London, Paris, and Berlin, but did not join him when he left for the United States and Asia. Aside from her refugee trip, Angelina is back in the headlines again after breast cancer survivor Melissa Etheridge called her decision to get a preventative mastectomy "fearful." She later clarified that she didn't mean to object to Angie's decision, but she felt that it wasn't a "brave" decision.
