New photos have surfaced of the couple’s recent trip to Australia and they show the Hollywood pair in a heated argument on the balcony of their hotel.
Pitt and Jolie were traveling to promote their latest film, Unbroken. Unfortunately, things between the two were reportedly more than a little strained. According to Woman’s Day, which released the images of the couple fighting, industry insiders reported the tensions could be because of Jolie’s hectic work schedule this past year.
The outlet reported, according to a witness, that Pitt downed a Crown Lager at 10 a.m. and both can be seen smoking on the balcony during their reported intense discussion. Though we do want to note, because of the time difference, that morning beer could make a little more sense.
Still, there’s no denying the photos show some obvious stress. Pitt has his hands raised in a lot of the images, while Jolie raises her arms in what appears to be frustration at one point and then proceeds to lean against the glass wall of the balcony.
The magazine reported that tensions continued into the evening at the premiere of Unbroken, which Jolie directed.
When asked about her married life, Jolie told reporters, “It makes us happy to be married, if that makes any sense. I don’t think we needed it, but it feels… he’s my husband.”
Though Woman’s Day did say the couple was seen hugging briefly and kissing at one point in the night, one onlooker described the affection as “stiff.”
We’re going to go ahead and say couples fight. It’s normal in any relationship. And, after nine years of being together, we’re guessing Pitt and Jolie have had their fair share of arguments just like the rest of us.
