Angelina Jolie gave herself a special gift for her 46th birthday and took a late-night visit to her ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller’s apartment for a private hang-out session.
She once admitted that divorcing her first husband “was probably the dumbest thing I’ve ever done”. So when Angelina Jolie was recently seen slipping into Jonny Lee Miller’s New York apartment, it left many wondering if a reunion might be on the cards.
The 46-year-old was photographed arriving at her Miller’s apartment in Brooklyn on Friday. She showed up to the pad with a long fitted trench coat along with a protective mask.
Pitt’s ex-wife carried a bottle of Peter Michael Wine in her hand. She looked ready to have a little party with her former husband. The cameramen say she arrived without a bodyguard and stayed for nearly four hours.
Jolie looked quite pleased as she exited the front of the building after her reunion with Miller. The two were previously married from 1996 until 1999 with Miller being Jolie’s first husband.
The day before, Jolie was spotted with all of her six kids at JFK airport after a week-long birthday trip with her family. In the course of a couple of days, the family was caught out grabbing hot dogs, taking in the sights of the city, and checking out museums.
It would appear Jolie had the kids head back home before she went to see her ex-husband. The Mr. & Mrs. Smith actress has been making more and more public appearances since losing her court battle with ex-husband Brad Pitt.
As Radar previously reported, the judge presiding over their divorce recently awarded Pitt joint custody in their never-ending battle. Jolie had been angling for primary custody ever since she filed her original petition.
The custody trial lasted for several months and included the court hearing testimony from a ton of witnesses. One source said, “This trial lasted for several months and there were an f–k ton of witnesses, experts, therapists, and other people who have been with the kids and around them, and the decision was based on this.”
Jolie is already in the process of appealing the decision and believes the judge failed to disclose all of his connections to Pitt’s lawyers.
Jolie’s lawyers asked for the judge to be disqualified but the request was denied. She is now asking the higher court to hear her side of things in hopes they will overturn the ruling and side with her.
Since her split from Brad Pitt in 2016 she’s expressed doubt that she will ever be ready to open her heart again – but many are now wondering if Jonny will be the man who gets her to change her mind.
Even though they parted ways in 1997, she and the British actor have remained in touch.
There was an almost instant attraction between the former couple when they met on the the set of the 1995 movie Hackers. Within six months, the pair tied the knot in an intimate ceremony with only two guests in attendance – the bride’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, and a friend of the groom.
Angelina, who was then only 20, set tongues wagging with her choice of outfit for the ceremony: a pair of black rubber pants and a T-shirt with Jonny’s name written on it in her own blood.

“It’s your husband,” she said at the time. “You’re about to marry him. You can sacrifice a little to make it really special.”
Sadly, their busy schedules put a strain on the marriage and within a year they’d parted ways, filing for divorce in 1999.
“There are no regrets and no bitterness,” Jonny said. “Marriage was something that didn’t work out, and I had to make the decision sooner or later. I decided to make it sooner.”
In 2008 he married Mulholland Drive actress Michele Hicks from whom he eventually split in 2018.
And as for Angie, having gone through two more divorces – from Billy Bob Thornton and Brad Pitt – she definitely seems to regard her time with Jonny as one of her easiest relationships.
“Jonny and I never fought and we never hurt each other,” she said in an interview several years ago. “I really wanted to be his wife. I really wanted to commit.”
Although insiders insist that Angie and Jonny are just close friends, fans are hoping that now older and wiser, the pair may decide to give love another go.
After all, that’s just what two other famous exes, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, have done – and see how happy they’re looking.
