Angelina Jolie has revealed how she and husband Brad Pitt were married while they sat at their desks working, adding that it didn't compare to signing the adoption papers for her children.
The actress said the nuptials were carried out “in the most unceremonial way possible” while in California before the couple flew to France for a second wedding.
The Oscar-winning actress said: “One day I was in the edit room, and [Brad] was doing something and an assistant said, ‘You have to sign some papers.’
“So we came back and between meetings we were told, “Here’s your license.”
“Then someone said, ‘The judge is outside.’ We both said, ‘What do you mean, the judge is outside?’ Then the judge came in, this lovely guy, and at some point, Brad said, ‘Shouldn’t we be standing up?’
“The judge said, “No.” Then suddenly we realised we were married, in the most unceremonial way possible.”
Speaking of their nuptials, the 40-year-old added: “It was just a nice thing. For me, the big moment was when [we] signed the [joint adoption] papers for Maddox and Zahara.
“That was a decision to parent together, to commit to being a part of each other’s lives for the rest of my life.
“So [marriage] wasn’t close in comparison. In a way, it was very casual.
Just four days after their ceremony at their Chateau Miraval home in the village of Correns, France, in August, the Hollwyood power couple were back at work.
