Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie married in France: People magazine

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, one of Hollywood’s most famous and powerful supercouples, were married on Saturday in France, People magazine reported.
The celebrity news outlet confirmed the news, first reported by the Associated Press, with multiple sources.
The couple’s six children attended the low-key ceremony at Chateau Miraval in the French village of Correns, where the couple have had a home for several years, People reported.
Earlier this year, Jolie, 39, had told People that she and Pitt were “not really in a rush” to get married, adding: “We’re just waiting for it to be the right time with the kids, with work, when it feels right.”
The Oscar-winning actress revealed last year that she had had a double mastectomy to reduce her high risk of breast cancer.
The A-list couple fell in love on the set of 2005 action film Mr & Mrs Smith - spawning the media phenomenon of Brangelina that has dominated celebrity journalism and the tabloids ever since.
Jolie – twice married and divorced before Saturday’s wedding to the 50-year-old Pitt - took home an Oscar for best supporting actress for her portrayal of a rebellious woman in a mental institution in 1999’s Girl, Interrupted.
She has played everything from a fairy tale villain (Maleficent) to a sexy video game heroine (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) to the widow of assassinated American journalist Daniel Pearl (A Mighty Heart).
Pitt got his big break more than 20 years ago with a much-talked-about shirtless eye-candy role in the hit movie Thelma and Louise - as the two-bit thief who seduces Geena Davis.
He has received three Oscar nominations for his acting, and this year took home an Academy Award as one of the producers of best picture 12 Years A Slave.
Pitt was previously married to Friends star Jennifer Aniston.
Jolie was married to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton.
The pair are filming By The Sea, slated for release next year.
Their children are Maddox, 13; Pax, 11; Zahara, 9; Shiloh, 8; and 6-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
Of her life with Pitt and children, Jolie told People in May: “We’ve been through so much, we’ve gotten a lot closer, which I think naturally happens with raising a family together.”
“You have this person you live with who really knows you, and you know them so well. You’re not lovers or boyfriend and girlfriend as much as you are a family,” she added.
