Madame Tussauds Separates Angelina Jolie's and Brad Pitt's Wax Figures

The once inseparable couple now has a random wax star between them: Robert Pattinson.



    This 2013 photo released by Madame Tussauds shows wax figures resembling married actors Angelina Jolie Pitt, left, and Brad Pitt on display at a Madame Tussauds wax museum. The couple's pending divorce has prompted Madame Tussauds to separate the wax figures of the stars at their museums in London, New York, Las Vegas and Hollywood.

    If Angelina Jolie's divorce papers didn't make it official, this certainly will.

    Madame Tussauds has separated Jolie's and Brad Pitt's wax figures. The famous wax museum announced the news early Wednesday morning. "Following the news that has shocked celebrity watchers worldwide, we can confirm we have separated Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's figures," Madame Tussauds tweeted with a photo of the two figures standing apart.

    "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," said a Madame Tussauds spokesperson. "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."

    The spokesperson added that "Angelina is keeping Nicole Kidman company and Brad Pitt is with his several time co-star Morgan Freeman."

    News of the Jolie-Pitt family's split broke Tuesday, when it was revealed that Jolie had filed for divorce. Upon the papers going public, the Tomb Raider's longtime manager Geyer Kosinksi told E! News in an exclusive statement, "Angelina is doing what's best in the interest of taking care of her children. She appreciates everyone's understanding of their need for privacy at this time."

    Pitt later responded with his own statement: "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."

    As for why the couple decided to call it quits, an insider revealed to E! News that they have been gradually growing apart for a while. "Angelina is very dedicated to her work with the United Nations and working on other charitable endeavors while Brad is consumed with his film projects," the source told us. "Both of their interests have taken them across the world but not together but in different directions."
