Angelina Jolie has spoken about how she was in a 'dark and difficult place' over the past two years after splitting from her husband Brad Pitt. 

The actress, 44, - who split from Brad, 55, in September 2016 - hadn't been on screen in four years when she returned to shoot Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. 

And Angelina admitted it took her some time to 'feel the strength' of the dark fairy once again.

The Lara Croft star- who has Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 12, and the twins Vivienne and Knox, 11 with Brad- revealed it was her children's support which helped her through the dark period in her life. 

'The last few years have not been the easiest, I have had my ups and downs, I haven’t felt very strong so, there’s something when you are not feeling very strong where you push yourself,' she told The Sun.

 Angelina continued: 'We all have our difficult times, it's very ­similar to my character in the film, my strength is from my children, I didn’t work, the kids needed me at home
