George Clooney was as shocked as the rest of us when told that the power couple – Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie filed for a divorce. Clooney is a couple’s long time friend and starred in six films alongside Brad Pitt. Currently he’s in New York at the UN Assembly working with President Obama at the United Nations to solve the global refugee crisis.
When the CNN reporter told him the news, George Clooney said:
“What happened?… I didn’t know that. Wow…I feel very sorry then. That’s a sad story and unfortunate for a family. It’s an unfortunate story about a family. I feel very sorry to hear that…This is the first I’ve heard of it.”
Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Piit on September 15th, 2016 citing irreconcilable differences. Some reports also claim that she did not approve of Brad’s parenting style and his consumption of “weed and aclohol”. The two have been together for nine years and married for two.
