Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may not exactly be on the point of patching things up, but they are getting on better. Well enough, in fact, that Pitt reportedly made multiple trips to join Jolie on set in Cambodia when she was filming her new Netflix movie, First They Killed My Father.
Indeed, a source tells E! News that Pitt was in Cambodia “most of the time, except when it conflicted with his own shoot schedule.”
Another source told the outlet that the couple’s six children, Shiloh, Maddox, Knox, Vivienne, Zahara, and Pax, spent time with both parents while sightseeing in Cambodia.
“All through production and filming, and on her most recent press trip, Brad came to Cambodia in secret to spend time with the kids,” the second source says. “They were with Angelina for probably 75 percent of the time when Brad was in the country, and they’d go back and forth between her and Brad.”
The insider also says “some or all” of the couple’s children would leave Cambodia to fly to Los Angeles to spend time with their dad.
“He wasn’t in Cambodia the entire time they filmed, but he made multiple trips there to spend time with the kids,” the source adds.
The report chimes with Jolie’s only public comment on the split, when, in an emotional interview with the BBC, Jolie said of her marital breakdown, “We are and forever will be a family and so that is how I am coping. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer. My focus is my children, our children.”
Jolie filed for divorce in September last year in a move that caught Hollywood by surprise, citing the “health of my family” as the reason for the split from Pitt, who she had been with since 2004 and with whom she has six children: 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, Shiloh, 10, Zahara, 11, Pax, 13, and Maddox, 15.
Jolie’s concerns over Pitt’s anger issues and use of alcohol was widely cited in reports as a contributing factor, but a source tells E! “Brad is doing well and is focused on healthy, clean living. He’s in a good place.”
Intriguingly, the site reports that Pitt has been spending time working on a sculpture at the artist Thomas Houseago’s studio, which famously takes up an entire city block next to the giant concrete trench known as the Los Angeles River.
