Sad Brad Puffs and Ponders

2/1/2007 2:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brad Pitt took a pensive break from helping Angelina Jolie collect items from her late mother's hotel room, and sat on the balcony floor to have a cigarette on Wednesday.

Angelina's mother, Marcheline Bertrand, passed away on Saturday after a long battle with ovarian cancer. She had been living at L'Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills.

The tragic news brought the supercouple back to Los Angeles after their relocation to New Orleans where Brad is shooting his latest film, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."

Standards are badly needed.    

Condolences to the family at such a sad time. And to Patti #11,
To lose your best friend in such a final way is excruciatingly and ongoingly painful.
Just ask Jennifer.

I'm not saying if you don't live in the same sate, aren't present in the same state at the time of your mother's death....you care less....but, chances are....you can't AFFORD to devote the time, or the money to be next to your parent at that time....because if you could....YOU MOST CERTAINLY WOULD......

smoking is bad for one's health - yes, we understand that. but last time i checked, that's a poor choice that we're still allowed to make for ourselves - just like drinking booze, over-eating or eating crap, and opening one's mouth to spew heartless, judgmental b-s at a guy who's never done anything to hurt you. does it make you feel better about yourselves condemning the "big star" based on a candid photo? if so, that's pathetic. the guy's family is grieving, give 'em a break.

It is common courtesy to not speak ill of anyone after a tragic incident like death.
Since none of the above commentators know these people personally, it would
be wise to know what you are talking about. As to the comments about Brad's
former marriage - Give me a break - 50% to 60% of weddings end in divorce.
GET OVER IT!!!! NO ONE BREAKS UP A HAPPY MARRIAGE!!!! GROW UP!!!!
Give the man and his family some privacy, famous people are just that-people.
Even Brad can be stressed, if he chooses to smoke - BUTT OUT!!!! at least he is
not BITTER.

Lay off! like being a good parent requires you to be a non-smoker. Smoking is not the worst thing in the world. He seems to be a wonderful parent, way more hands on then alot of non celebrities and celebrities. You non-smokers have got to get over those who continue to smoke,it is non of your business. Let them mourn their loss, we have all been there and now how hard it is.

SARA J, YOU CAN GET ALL KINDS OF CANCERS, BUT THEY ALL KILL. MY GRANDMOTHER HAS LUNG AND COLON CANCER. SHE, TOO, HAS NEVER TOUCHED A CIGARETTE. I'VE SEEN RADIATION, CHEMO, AND DIALISYS, AND THAT IS ENOUGH FOR ME TO PLAY IT SAFE. YOUR MOM WAS EXTREMELY LUCKY IF SHE SMOKED THAT LONG AND IS COMPLETELY HEALTHY. I, MYSELF, CARE FOR MY LOVED ONES ENOUGH TO NOT TAKE THE RISK. DO YOU??

It sure must suck for you guys to live in a world that Brad and Angie inhabit, because the bitterness is pushing most of you to lose the most basic decency.

How crappy must your life be that your only way to feel good about yourself is to be such judgemental and inhumane. So your lives are perfect, and your choices are the best ever, well good for you, but if so, why this need to show the ugliest side of humanity. Brad Pitt was never married to you, he is happy with Angelina and has used every opportunity to say so. You women are bitter because you know that Jennifer Anniston lost a good man and is still reeling from it just like Gwyneth Paltrow has been for years.

You can call both of them any vile name under the sun, it will not change that Brad and Angelina are decent human beings and have refused to respond to the game being played by Anniston and her PR people.

I understand the criticism about a model father smoking in 2007.

This is not a pretty sight and I guess the critics who see nothing wrong with this picture are probably smokers themselves.

This picture is painting a very twisted message to the world.

"See me smoke now..........even though I just had a tragic loss of a close one to an evil disease called cancer."

Ovarian cancer may not be caused from smoking but we don't need to be told one more time that "smoking is dangerous to our health and cancer may result from smoking. Dah!!

This is very troubling.

Wake up....
