Actress-director Angelina Jolie has said that she and her husband Brad Pitt were actually married before their secret nuptials in August last year.
"Before the wedding in France with the kids, Brad and I were already married in California. As Americans, we couldn't marry legally in France," she told Italian magazine Io Donna, reports usmagazine.com.
The Unbroken director also shared how the wedding really went down.
"One day I said to Brad, 'Let's meet up at 4:30 p.m.?' I called a justice of the peace and we signed the documents," she said.
Later on, the Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-stars exchanged vows inside an ancient stone chapel at Chateau Miraval, the Jolie-Pitt family's estate in Correns, France.
The A-list actors' complementary wedding bands were designed by Robert Procop and carried by ring bearers Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6.
