A day after actress Angelina Jolie’s attorney revealed that she has filed for a divorce from actor Brad Pitt, Madame Tussauds wax museum in London took immediate action and had the wax statues of the two Hollywood stars, Brad and Angelina, separated.
Madame Tussauds’s spokesperson said: “We reacted quickly to yesterday’s news of the separation of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their plans to divorce by mirroring the separation in the attraction.” He further added: “The couple’s wax figures, which were launched in 2013, have been split up and are now featured at a respectful distance from each other. Angelina is keeping Nicole Kidman company and Brad Pitt is with his several time co-star Morgan Freeman.”
The wax figures of Brangelina, who had long been known as one of Hollywood’s power couple, were placed at London’s Madame Tussaud in 2013. As the statues were separated, Twilight saga’s lead actor, Robert Pattinson’s wax statue has been placed between the couple’s waxwork to send through a clear message.
While the museum thought it apt to take immediate action, some Brangelina fans have conveyed disapproval of their actions as they point out that the couple had been together for 12 years and the divorce has yet to be legally settled.
Earlier, Brad Pitt’s wax statue had been paired with ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, until she filed a divorce case in 2005. That was the same year that Angelina Jolie announced that she and Brad Pitt were expecting their first baby.
After the actress recognised for her performance in renowned television show F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Jennifer Aniston, had filed for a divorce from Brad in 2005, their wax statues, too, had undergone a separation. “They were subsequently separated when they split up in 2005 and Jennifer’s figure is now featured in our sister attractions in the USA,” the spokesman added.
