Angelina Jolie Accused Of Faking Tears During Divorce Tell-All

Find out why the actress was so desperate to get out in front of the cameras.

Ever since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September, the pair haven’t publicly spoken about their shocking split — until Feb. 20.

As Star reported, the 41-year-old actress sat down with BBC News in Cambodia for an emotional interview about her failed marriage.

“It was a very difficult time,” Angelina said as she got choked up on camera. “Many people find themselves in this situation. My whole family have all been through a difficult time. My focus is my children, our children.”

She went on, “We are and forever will be a family and so that is how I am coping. I am coping finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer.”

But according to a new report in Heat magazine, insiders claim the actress’ tears may all be for show as she’s been focused on repairing her image following the nasty split.

“The coverage when the divorce first broke in September was a PR nightmare,” author of Brangelina, Ian Halperin, told the publication. “Angelina got all this horrendous publicity when she appeared to attack Brad so publicly, and now she’s trying to restore and reinvent herself. She means it when she says the last few months have been very rough for her — it’s been a tough period and she was vilified by some people.”

The author added that the actress was desperate to get out in front of the cameras to “restore her reputation by pushing her charity work and the mother image.”
