Angelina Jolie has revealed she and Brad Pitt were already husband and wife when they wed at their home in France last year (14).
The couple exchanged vows at their Chateau Miraval retreat in August (14), but now the actress tells the new issue of Corriere della Sera magazine she was Mrs. Pitt before she and the movie star flew out for the top secret nuptials.
She explains, "Before the wedding in France with the kids, Brad and I were already married in California. As Americans, we couldn't marry legally in France."
And she insists the legal ceremony was a very simple affair, adding, "One day I said to Brad, 'Let's meet up at 4.30 pm'. I called a justice of the peace and we signed the documents."
