If this doesn't make the split official, nothing will! Brangelina is officially no more as Madame Tussauds separates the two wax figures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at several locations. A spokesman for the wax museum in London claims they wanted to mirror the separation, which was publicly announced this past Tuesday.
Now, the two wax figures who were once together as Brangelina have found new resting places far away from each other in the museum. The wax figure of Angelina Jolie is now dozing up next to Nicole Kidman, who once went through her own well-publicized separation with Tom Cruise way back in 2001. Jolie and Kidman have never appeared together in a movie.
Brad Pitt, on the other hand, has been placed next to one of his more famous co-stars, Morgan Freeman. The two shared the screen in the 1995 crime classic Se7en. The wax figure split will happen in most of the locations where the two actors have been immortalized. This includes the museum in the U.S. According to CBS News, The pair have been featured in 15 of the 20 Madame Tussauds locations around the world. On Tuesday, attorney Robert Offer had this to say in a statement obtained by Reuters about the separation.
"This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time."
Irreconcilable differences were cited by Angelina Jolie. The actress/director is asking for full physical custody of the couple's six children, while sharing joint legal custody. Jolie didn't ask for any money from Pitt in the divorce proceedings. Some believe the split occurred over a difference of opinion in Pitt's parenting style. Brad Pitt had this to say in his own statement earlier this week.
"I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie first got together during the making of Mr. and Mrs. Jones way back in 2005. What may surprise some fans is that they didn't actually get married until August of 2014, almost a decade after they became known as Brangelina. Now, if you want to see them at Madame Tussauds, you'll have to bask in their waxy glow at separate locations on the floor, respectively.
