Angelina Jolie makes first public appearance after filing for divorce

NEW DELHI: Oscar winner Angelina Jolie is back in the spotlight after a few ‘turbulent’ months. The 41-year-old actress has kept away from the public eye since she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September. Reportedly, the two are currently engaged in a custody battle over their six children

Jolie made her first official public post-split appearance Saturday at a free screening of her new film ‘First They Killed My Father’ at the Terrace of the Elephant in the ancient Angkor Wat temple complex in Siem Reap, Cambodia and brought along all her kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.

During the press conference for the film, Jolie said she thinks of Cambodia “like a second home”.

Pitt had made his first celebrity appearance since his and Jolie’s split about two months after she filed divorce papers. He attended a screening of the now Oscar-nominated film Moonlight, which he co-produced, and was later spotted at an event for his new movie ‘Allied’.

“First They Killed My Father” is based on the autobiography of the same name by Cambodian human-rights activist Loung Ung, a friend of Jolie’s. The memoir tells the true story of the devastation inflicted on Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge communist party in the 1970s.
