"I had lost myself a bit," she told French magazine Madame Figaro of the moment when her "relationship with Brad was coming to an end."

During the separation, Jolie, 44, said she felt "smaller, almost insignificant, even if it wasn’t necessarily obvious."

She added: "I felt a deep and genuine sadness. I was hurt."

Pitt, 55, recently opened up about their divorce in an interview with The New York Times where he revealed he sought help from Alcoholics Anonymous after Jolie filed for divorce.

“I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privileges,” he shared.

He also confessed previously that he used alcohol and marijuana as numbing agents before Brangelina's breakup.

“I can't remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn't boozing or had a spliff, or something," he told GQ Style in May 2017. "Something. And you realize that a lot of it is, um — cigarettes, you know, pacifiers. And I'm running from feelings."

I'm really, really happy to be done with all of that. I mean, I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know — things I wasn't dealing with. I was boozing too much. It's just become a problem," he said. "And I'm really happy it's been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I've got my feelings in my fingertips again.”
