The marriage and eventual separation of Brad Pitt and Jolie brought about significant discord with Brad's parents, Bill and Jane Pitt. Right from the outset, the connection between the Pitt parents and Jolie remained notably lacking. Additionally, as reported by Radar Online, a source revealed, "Jane told Angie there was nothing to gain from rehashing her drug use, and that she has a lot more to think about than herself — she should have considered her children and family first!" Despite Jolie's attempt to apologize to her mother-in-law, the feud persisted, extending its reach to involve other members of their respective families.

Subsequently, during an interview, Walker was asked about the unique experience of having Meryl Streep as his mother-in-law. According to Metro, he replied, "It's much harder for women in this industry, so it's truly remarkable what she has accomplished. The only thing more intimidating than an international film star is a mother-in-law. So we should just probably leave it at that."
