The actress has filed for divorce on the grounds of "irreconcilable differences".

They've been one of Hollywood's golden couples since getting together in 2004, but today it's been announced that Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from husband Brad Pitt after just two years of marriage.

The request for divorce is due to irreconcilable differences and the 41-year-old's lawyer Robert Offer released a statement saying the decision had been made "for the health of the family".

The couple have six children together and it's been reported by TMZ that Jolie was "extremely upset" with Brad's parenting style which led to the dissolution of the marriage.

The pair famously met on the set of movie 'Mr. & Mrs.Smith', while Brad was still married to actress Jennifer Aniston.
