Brad and Angelina are really good at keeping secrets but the cat’s out of the bag now! Angie just revealed in a new interview that she and her famous hubby were already married long before their secret wedding in France on Aug. 23, 2014!
We all rejoiced when Brad Pitt, 51, and Angelina Jolie, 39, tied the knot in a top secret ceremony in France on Aug. 23. But what we didn’t know was that the couple actually made things official in California months before the big day. Here’s why.
Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Married Before Wedding In France
“Before the wedding in France with the kids, Brad and I were already married in California,” Angelina reveals to Italian magazine Io Donna. “As Americans, we couldn’t marry legally in France.”
Compared to their lavish nuptials at Chateau Miraval in Correns, France, Brad and Angie’s first wedding was a decidedly casual affair.
“One day I said to Brad, ‘Let’s meet up at 4:30 pm?'” Angelina tells the mag. “I called a justice of the peace and we signed the documents.” A California judge granted the couple their marriage license and conducted their nondenominational civil ceremony, Us Weekly previously reported.

The couple were married in a small chapel surrounded by family and friends. Angelina walked down the aisle with her eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 11, on each arm, while her daughters Zahara, 10, and Vivienne, 6, served as flower girls. Daughter Shiloh, 8, and son Knox, 6, served as ring bearers.
