Divorce can be a gut-wrenching, heartbreaking experience — even if you’re rich and famous. But it’s how one deals with the pain and grief that can make all the difference in the world.
In 2000, after two years of dating, Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt tied the knot during a lavish ceremony in Malibu. At first, they were considered the perfect Hollywood success story… a fairy tale come to life.
But in 2005, the couple announced they were headed for divorce. News of the shocking breakup splattered across magazine covers, and rumors and speculations swirled — specifically around Brad Pitt’s infidelity upon meeting Angelina Jolie on the set of their 2005 movie, Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
People continue to talk about Brad and Jen’s relationship even to this day. But back in 2005, Jennifer appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show in the thick of it all, just one month before her divorce became final. Newly single and daring to sit down on TV with millions of people watching her every move, she recalled the exact moment she found an incredible sense of peace.
She and a girlfriend were sitting, stretching, and chatting. Suddenly, Jennifer looked over at her friend and had an epiphany — right then and there — that changed her entire outlook.
That epiphany, which she explains in the video below, is pretty inspiring, considering news of her divorce was making international headlines at the time.
