UPDATE 9/21 1:28 p.m. EDT — “By the Sea” will be added to HBOGo on Oct. 13.
Original story: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s real-life marriage apparently wasn’t made to last, but their big screen relationships will live on. Pitt and Jolie played married couples in two very different movies, “Mr. And Mrs. Smith” and “By the Sea.” If you’re looking to watch either of those movies while mourning their divorce, you won’t be able to find them on Netflix.
The film that started it all is “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” The two fell in love on the set of the 2005 film. They played two assassins hiding their true careers from each other. They’ve sort of lost the spark in their marriage — until they discover they’ve been assigned to kill each other.
“Mr. & Mrs. Smith” is available on FXNow. You’ll need information from your cable provider to log in and watch it. Don’t wait, though. The film expires at the end of the month. If you don’t want to watch online, several FX channels will be airing it throughout the rest of the month.
The couple didn’t appear on screen together for another 10 years. In 2015’s “By the Sea,” Pitt and Jolie played a 1970s couple who are having marital trouble. The film is a little more difficult to find. It doesn’t appear to be streaming anywhere or airing on TV. It looks like you’ll have to pay a rental fee if you want to see the flick. It’s available on Amazon, Google Play, YouTube and more.
Those aren’t the only movies that the couple has worked on together. Pitt didn’t appear in “A Mighty Heart,” which stars Jolie, but he was involved behind the scenes. He produced the 2007 movie. It tells the true story of Mariane Pearl (Jolie), who went to Pakistan after terrorists kidnapped her journalist husband. “A Mighty Heart” is available on Showtime Anytime or Hulu (but only for those with the Showtime add-on).
As previously reported, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, 52, after two years of marriage. The 41-year-old actress cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split, and she listed their date of separation as Sept. 15. She is not seeking spousal support from Pitt, 52, but she does want custody of their six children. The paperwork asks that Jolie be given full physical custody of Vivienne, 7, Knox, 7, Shiloh, 9, Zahara, 10, Pax, 11 and Maddox, 14, but she has offered visitation rights for Pitt.
