WAXING AND WANING

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce feels realer than ever now that their wax figures have broken up, too. The London Madame Tussauds tweeted this morning that they have physically separated their replicas of the former super couple. (That’s Robert Pattinson standing between them, because sure, why not?)

It wasn’t always this way, of course. Here’s a look back at Wax Brad and Wax Angie when their hearts were as full as their unblinking gazes were vacant.

💔💔💔

It may have taken Madame Tussauds less than 24 hours to separate Brad and Angie in 2016, but back in December 2005—before the couple had officially gone public—the museum delighted in posing them next to Wax Jennifer Aniston, who had divorced Pitt just nine months prior. Note that Wax Angelina is dressed up as the Wicked Stepmother to Wax Jen’s Snow White. Rude.

Jolie gave birth to their first biological child, Shiloe Jolie-Pitt, in May 2006. That July, the New York City Madame Tussauds immortalized that very famous baby, then only eight weeks old, in its first-ever replica of an infant. Granted, this Wax Shiloh could probably be Wax Literally Any Baby, but it’s still a nice gesture.

From the cowrie shell necklace to whatever it is that’s happening on top of Wax Brad’s scalp, these are the most 2006 wax figures ever made.

Let Wax Angie’s arm snake serve as a comforting reminder that when you get a tattoo removed, your wax figure does too.

Seen here in 2012, the Australia Madame Tussauds version of the couple look as though they’re considering throwing you to your death on the streets of Sydney below. (Tip: Never, ever agree to climb out onto an observation deck with wax replicas who have mysteriously come to life.) Maybe it’s because you figured out that this Wax Brad is actually a Wax Benicio del Toro in disguise, or that Wax Angelina is wearing a Bumpit.

The latest London iteration of Wax Brangelina dates back to 2013, updated shortly before Non-Wax Brad’s 50th birthday. It’s unclear who the museum employee standing between them is, but I’m not prepared to rule her out as a factor contributing to their split.
