London, Sep 21 (IANS) World famous waxwork museum Madame Tussauds has placed actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s figures separately after news of their split emerged.
“Following the news that has shocked celebrity watchers worldwide, we can confirm we have separated Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s figures,” read a post from the official Twitter handle of Madame Tussauds on Wednesday.
In an accompanying image with the post, “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson’s figure seems to have been placed in between Pitt and Jolie’s artworks.
The waxwork museum later confirmed Jolie had been moved to keep Nicole Kidman company and Pitt’s figure was next to his “Seven” co-star Morgan Freeman.
The now estranged couple’s waxworks were unveiled in 2013 to mark Pitt’s 50th birthday.
“We reacted quickly to yesterday’s (Tuesday) news of the separation of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their plans to divorce by mirroring the separation in the attraction.
“The couple’s wax figures, which were launched in 2013, have been split up and are now featured at a respectful distance from each other,” dailymail.co.uk quoted a spokesperson as saying.
The Hollywood couple, known collectively as Brangelina, married in 2014. On Tuesday, it was revealed that Jolie had filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.
