Whoa! Angelina Jolie finally broke her silence -- kind of -- about her divorce from Brad Pitt and the "incident" that lead to their split.

In an interview with BBC, the actress tears up when asked about Brad, as she sits cross-legged on a porch in Cambodia to, ostensibly, discuss her new film First They Killed My Father.

    "I don’t want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and we are a family, and we will always be a family. It was very difficult. Many people find themselves in this situation. My whole family have all been through a difficult time."

Last September it was learned there was an "incident" of some sort, on a private jet returning from France to LA that involved Brad and one of the couple's children, believed to be their eldest, Maddox. It has never been clear what happened on the plane, exactly, and court documents in the couple's divorce have been sealed.

Angelina went on to say, "My focus is my children, our children. We are and forever will be a family and so that is how I am coping. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer."

Angelina and her six kids are all in Cambodia for the film's premiere, where they met with the Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni. Maddox, 15, was adopted by Jolie in Cambodia in 2002 when she was there filming Tomb Raider.
