Jen’s first post was a photo of her with Friends co-stars David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox, which she captioned: “And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too, HI INSTAGRAM.”

Angelina opted not to go down memory lane with her first Insta, and the 46-year-old actress, who in her bio describes herself as “Mom, filmmaker, Special Envoy for UN refugees”, instead chose to share a photograph of a heartbreaking letter from a terrified teenage girl in Afghanistan now facing Taliban rule, and a photo of women wearing burkhas.

And, showing she is already a dab hand at the platform, she also shared an Insta story, linking to an article she has written for Time Magazine about the Afghanistan crisis.

Later in 2006, a year after his divorce from Jen , Angelina said they had fallen for each other on the set of their film Mr & Mrs Smith.

Their marriage broke down after Brad met second wife Angelina on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith in 2014 – and their chemistry in the film hints at the fireworks that were sparked off set.

Ange added: “I think a few months in I realised, ‘God, I can’t wait to get to work.’ … Anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. We just became kind of a pair.

“It took until, really, the end of the shoot for us, I think, to realise that it might mean something more than we’d earlier allowed ourselves to believe. And both knowing that the reality of that was a big thing, something that was going to take a lot of serious consideration.”

‘Brangelina’ wed in 2014 but split two years later, and despite being divorced as of 2019 the warring exes are still locked in a bitter and very expensive custody battle over their five youngest children.

There are six Jolie-Pitt children; twins Vivienne and Knox, 12, and Shiloh, 15, plus with Maddox, 20, Zahara, 16, and Pax, 17, who were adopted from orphanages in Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam.
