Angelina Jolie just began promoting her new film, First They Killed My Father, but she's already having a hard time avoiding questions about her split from Brad Pitt.
Jolie got emotional in an interview with BBC Sunday.
BBC reporter Yalda Hakim was the first to get Jolie to broach the subject since the September split. Hakim started, "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 became teary-eyed, responding, "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."
She continued, "And we’ll get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it."
We applaud Jolie for putting her family first, even in the worst circumstances.
