The real #CoupleGoals Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt broke up last September over issues of family health when it was reported that Pitt had allegedly hit 15-year-old son Maddox during a mid-air scuffle on a private jet. 

In a recently recorded podcast, however, Jolie confessed that the couple who were together for 14 years, including two years as married, were trying hard to save their relationship as cracks had started to develop long before.

She revealed that in the 2015 film "By The Sea", written and directed by her, Jolie was attempting to save Brangelina by portraying them on screen (to a large extent). 

Jolie was quoted saying: "We had met working together and we worked together well. I wanted us to do some serious work together... So I thought that it could be a good way for us to communicate. And I think in some ways it was. And in some ways, we learned some things. But there was a heaviness during that situation that carried on and it wasn't because of the film."

While Jolie and Pitt were working on their relationship with this film, many who saw it felt that it foretold the end of Brangelina.

Jolie in the podcast also confirmed her worst fears. She said, "Things happen for different reasons... Why did I write that exact piece? Why did we feel that way when we made it? I'm not sure."
