Update: After a two-year long engagement, mega-stars Angelina Jolie and Brad PItt married in France last week. The AP reports, "Jolie and Pitt wed in a small chapel in a private ceremony attended by family and friends at Provence's Chateau Miraval. In advance of the nondenominational civil ceremony, Pitt and Jolie obtained a marriage license from a local California judge. The judge also conducted the ceremony in France."

The AP described, "The couple's children took part in the wedding. Jolie walked the aisle with her eldest sons Maddox and Pax. Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals. Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers, the spokesman says."

The couple has had much professional success this year: Pitt earn an Oscar for producing 12 Years a Slave and an Emmy for producing The Normal Heart, while Jolie's Maleficient has made $747 million across the world.

They met while filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004, while Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston, and rumors of an affair grew. He and Aniston announced their separation in early 2005, and then Pitt and Jolie deliberately kept their distance during promotional appearances.

While the couple had previously said they would marry when everyone could marry who they love, with marriage equality passing in more states, Pitt said, "I'’m getting more pressure from my kids, and it’s something I want to do within their lifetime."

This year, Jolie said, "We're just waiting for it to be the right time with the kids, with work, when it feels right. We talk about it occasionally, and the kids talk about it with us." She added, "Which is verging on hysterical, how kids envision a wedding. They will in a way be the wedding planners. It's going to be Disney or paintball - one or the other! We've got a lot of different personalities in the house. They've got some strong opinions. It will be fun. That's the important thing. When we do it, it will feel like a great day for our family."

And in ex news: Aniston, while promoting a new movie, repeatedly told media that motherhood and marriage don't define her as a woman.
