The couple's children had major roles in the wedding. Jolie was walked down the aisle by her two eldest sons, Maddox and Pax, Zahara and Vivienne threw petals and Shiloh and Knox were ring bearers. "The reason for getting married was very simple. Obviously they love each other very much but every single day their kids asked them to get married. Now that everyone is old enough to understand what is going on they decided why not!" a source close to the couple has said.

Mini Friends reunion on Jimmy Kimmel
Jennifer Aniston was making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote her new film, Life Of Crime when Jimmy Kimmel confessed that he is a huge fan of Friends and had written a script of Friends fan fiction for them to take part in. "I loved the show so much I actually wrote some fan fiction. I wrote myself into it as Ross. I was wondering if you could do a scene from it with me?" Kimmel said. The skit was performed on an authentic re-creation of Monica's apartment from the TV series. Aniston seemed a little unwilling to participate at first. As the skit continued Kimmel and Aniston were joined by Aniston's Friends co-stars, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow. This mini cast reunion draws close to the 20th anniversary of this TV show that defined the 90s.
