The Troy star has yet to finalize his divorce from Angelina Jolie, with whom he shares six kids – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.

They are legally single but they reportedly still have to iron out financial agreements.

Pitt is clearly still trying to get over his split from Jolie. 

‘A breakup of a family is certainly an eye-opener that as one — and I’m speaking in general again — but as one needs to understand, I had to understand my own culpability in that, and what can I do better,’ he continued. ‘Because I don’t want to go on like this.’

Jolie is also getting used to her new life.

She told Madame Fiagro in October, ‘I feel like I’m coming full-circle. For this new Guerlain campaign, I asked myself: what is expected of me? And the answer was that I want to be who I’ve always been. So instead of hiding my wild side, I’m bringing it out. I want to feel free.’
