Hollywood A-lister Angelina Jolie and her children appear to be moving forward with their lives a month after she announced her filing for divorce from husband Brad Pitt. For the first time, she was spotted in public on Sunday checking a new rental property in Malibu, California.
The barefoot 41-year-old actress was seen going up a flight of steps wearing a long, tan robe. Five of her six children were with her as well as older brother James Haven who is the kids’ temporary nanny. Absent from the Sunday trip was 15-year-old Maddox.
The Kids Look Happy
The five children, their nannies and security guard spent some time at the beach before they went around the rental property for about an hour. It was not just Jolie who looked very happy and relaxed but also the five children, indicating the young ones are also doing well.
Pitt has not been spotted in public since Jolie announced their divorce. But on Oct. 8, he finally saw the children during a monitored visit, part of the temporary custody agreement the ex-couple reached in Sept. 30. ET said that the two actors have not been in contact directly, although communications are coursed through their respective lawyers.
Guarding Brangelina Was Toughest Job Of Former SAS
Meanwhile, Mark Billingham, a former bodyguard of the estranged couple for 18 months, said the children were so close to him that he believes he served as their unofficial father. Billingham, an ex-SAS for 27 years, said guarding the couple was his toughest job, The Sun reported.
Billingham is back in the limelight with his work as new instructor for the Channel 4 show “SAS: Who Dares Wins.” Together with Anthony Middleton, Jason Fox and Matthew Ollerton, as instructors, they are tasked with conducting an SAS selection test on 25 civilians deployed in a jungle in Ecuador.
The former bodyguard thinks that Pitt, his ex-boss, would not last long in a jungle life because “he wouldn’t have any cream to put on his face.” But Billingham considers Jolie made of sterner stuff than Pitt who would likely find conditions in the jungle too sweaty and uncomfortable.
