Angelina Jolie seemed to be turning to an old flame in the midst of her ongoing custody battle with Brad Pitt.
The actress, 46, was spotted leaving ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller’s apartment in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood on Friday, June 11, after an intimate dinner and a nightcap.
The two tied the knot in 1996 after meeting on the set of their movie Hackers a year before, but separated soon after and officially divorced in 1999.

Jolie was seen arriving at the apartment alone and unsecured on Friday night in a nude trench coat and sleek white pants, which she teamed with stiletto heels.
She carried with her an expensive bottle of Peter Michael wine and a Louis Vuitton bag, and spent around three hours inside where the couple reportedly dined.
The Girl Interrupted star was then spotted leaving the scene at 10:30 p.m. where she tried to keep a low profile despite her unmistakable good looks.
And the next morning Miller was seen jogging in the rain around the neighborhood.

The British-born actor, 48, donned a blue windbreaker that was pulled up to his nose and black shorts that exposed his tattoo on his leg.
Although Angelina is based in Los Angeles, she was reportedly in New York City for a late birthday trip where she was joined by her seven children.
And as the couple share two decades of history, she seemed to want to see him on the east coast.
They first met on the set of Hackers in 1995 and quickly fell in love. At the time of their nuptials in 1996, Angelina was only 20 years old and their marriage made headlines for its quirks.

Instead of a wedding dress, Jolie wore black rubber pants and a white t-shirt that had the Trainspotting actor’s name written in her own blood.
She later said the blood was meant to represent a willingness to sacrifice herself for their love and shared that she drew the blood herself with a surgical needle.
– He is your husband. You are about to marry her. You can sacrifice a little bit to make it really special, ”she told The New York Times in an interview.
But after getting married, she told the publication that she felt her marriage made her “lose [her] identity ”, in a way.

Getting lost: After the couple’s marriage, she said she felt like being married had made her “lose her identity” in some way.
“It was weird to be immediately married and then you kind of lose your identity. You are suddenly someone’s wife. And you’re like, “Oh, I’m half a couple now. I got lost. ”
“We attended a morning show, and they threw rice at us and gave us toasters. I thought, “I need to recover,” she explained at the time.
The couple broke up in 1997 after their busy schedules separated them from each other. The divorce was official in 1999 but they have always remained friends.
She had expressed regret that she couldn’t get it to work. “Jonny and I never fought and we never hurt each other. I really wanted to be his wife. I really wanted to get involved, ”she reportedly told the Calgary Sun in an interview.

And she also shared at the time of their divorce that she thought they might “remarry” in the future.
“I wanted more for him than I could give. He deserves more than I’m willing to give at this time in my life, but there is a very good possibility that we may remarry in the future.
Although she said Jonny’s divorce was “the dumbest thing I’ve ever done,” he expressed no regret for their years together.
“There is no regrets or bitterness. Marriage was something that didn’t work out, and I had to make the decision sooner or later. I decided to do it sooner, ”he told Heavy.com.
The actor went on to marry Law & Order star Michele Hicks, but they separated after a decade together in 2018.

Angelina married Billy Bob Thornton in 2000 where the two wore vials of each other’s blood around their necks, but they divorced two years later.
And in 2014, she finally married Brad Pitt after falling in love on the set of Mr. And Mrs. Smith in 2005.
The couple share three biological children – Shiloh, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 12 – as well as adopted children: Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, and Zahara, 16.
She filed for divorce in 2016 citing “irreconcilable differences” and that was finalized in 2019. The former couple have been in a long custody battle with Jolie wanting sole custody and Pitt fighting for joint custody.
In May, a court awarded Pitt joint custody, which left her “bitterly disappointed” according to Us Weekly. She is set to appeal the ruling “to demonstrate a clear, reversible and damaging legal error” on behalf of the judge – whom she tried to remove from the case entirely – and a hearing is set for July 9. .
