Despite hanging out with some of Hollywood’s most well-known personalities, James Haven, the brother of Angelina Jolie, used to be her closest confidant. The siblings’ close bond even caused people to turn their heads. Though, the world was startled by their split since 2016. But what went wrong between the two that caused a rift between two in recent years?

While ‘James Haven’ may not be a household name, if you watched the 2000 Oscars, you probably remember one touching moment involving him. During the speech, Jolie praised her brother and even declared, “I’m so in love with my brother right now,” as she accepted her award for Girl, Interrupted.

James Haven And Angelina Jolie Were Close Friends!

There was a time when James Haven was always mentioned in articles and conversations involving the Eternals star. He is one of the few people on earth who was very important to his sister according to a 2007 report from the Daily Mail. In fact, Haven used the opportunity to discuss Angelina Jolie’s involvement in humanitarian and her adoption of children from Vietnam, Cambodia, and Ethiopia. Simply put, he always appreciated his sister.  

According to Haven, Jolie’s compassion for others stems from seeing how their father treated their mother, as he said in an interview. He said,

I think his treatment of our mother is one of the reasons Angelina and I care so much about other people. Angelina and I were very protective of her for that reason.”

He added that he might have been single at the time because of the relationship he had with his sister.

Maybe I haven’t found the right woman because my sister is too picky for me,” he said, according to how he put it. “Any woman has to go through two filters, me and then my sister.”

But not everyone admired the close bond he shared Jolie. As per US Weekly, many people were perplexed by their 2000 Oscars night kisses. Fans appeared to be having difficulty understanding what had happened.
