The now 57-year Hollywood actor said at the time that meeting Angelina in court was "an investment in vitriolic hatred".

Brad was philosophical in the interview as he described how the process was difficult for all parties involved.

He told GQ: "We’re both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, ‘No one wins in court – it’s just a matter of who gets hurt worse’".

Brad continued: "And it seems to be true, you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you’re right and why they’re wrong, and it’s just an investment in vitriolic hatred."

Brad and Angelina met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith while he was married to Jennifer Aniston, when they were hailed as Hollywood's golden couple.

Brad and Ange soon hit it off though and were a couple from the moment Brad and Jen came to an end.
