Okay, honestly, I don’t know when Angelina Jolie has time to sleep. Along with being one of the biggest A-list actresses since the ’90s, she directs, she’s written books, she’s done tons of humanitarian work with both the UN and her own foundations, and she’s raising six kids, five of whom are teenagers. Angie, what’s your secret???
And we haven’t even gotten to her (potentially active??) dating life yet. In case you’ve been living under a rock, she’s still going through a divorce from Brad Pitt. Yep, one of Hollywood’s favorite power couples split in 2016 (RIP, all of us) because we can’t have nice things, but it’s fine, everything’s fine. But before there was Brad, Angelina Jolie’s dating history in Hollywood was a ~journey~ in itself. There were PDA-filled interviews (srsly, Megan Fox and MGK only WISH they had the red carpet energy of Angelina and Billy Bob Thornton) and blood sacrifices, and that’s only the beginning. And as for her post-Brad dating life? We’ve got some (possible?!) deets on that too.
So without further ado, pls enjoy this look back at Angelina Jolie’s dating history.

Sorry, I can’t get over the fact that Angie’s first wedding outfit was rubber pants and a T-shirt with her husband’s name WRITTEN IN HER OWN BLOOD?!? She told The New York Times, “It’s your husband. You’re about to marry him. You can sacrifice a little to make it really special.” Anyway, she and Jonny Lee Miller met on the set of 1995’s Hackers and tied the knot in March 1996. They separated in 1999, but reportedly remained pretty good friends. Earlier this year, some people speculated that they were pulling a Bennifer when Angelina was seen leaving his apartment twice, but a source said it was actually just a playdate between their sons and that the two have been friends for years.

Angelina met model and actress Jenny Shimizu while working on the 1996 film Foxfire, and tbh, it sounds like the sparks flew *instantly.* In 1997, Jolie told Girlfriends magazine, “I probably would have married Jenny Shimizu if I hadn’t married my husband. I fell in love with her the first second I saw her.” It seems like they dated on and off for …….
