While promoting her fifth film and directorial effort, First They Killed My Father, Jolie opened up about her split from Brad Pitt. Jolie, typically a private person, relinquished a few details about her life without her former partner of 12 years while discussing her film. Heartbreakingly, reports indicate that Jolie may still be feeling hurt by the entire process.

During an interview with BBC reporter Yalda Hakim, Hakim posed this question to Jolie about the split: "Your film is about family and loss. I understand this is a very sensitive issue. We know that an incident occurred which led to your separation, we also know you haven't said anything about this, but would you like to say something?"

Jolie didn't appear to be eager to answer the question, as she allegedly took a moment to think before answering. "I don’t want to say very much about [the incident] except to say that it was a very difficult time and we are a family. And we’ll always be a family. And we’ll get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it."

It was all Jolie said on the matter, yet it would seem that she has already said quite a lot. The announcement of her divorce from Pitt shocked fans, and the details regarding the cause of the split invited even more shock. While allegations of Pitt's substance abuse and anger issues flooded the news, Jolie and her children retreated from the public eye to heal.

In January 2017, Pitt and Jolie released a joint statement in an effort to dispel rumors that the divorce proceedings were anything less than civil: "The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues. The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification."
