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."

Dana Reeves (Christopher Reeves) wife died of Lung Cancer and NEVER SMOKED!

And when did this become a freaking debate about smoking and non smoking causing cancer? Let's talk about how evil, heartless and cruel this photograher/stalkers are for waiting around like vultures for a shot! What, hoping for a pic of Angelina bawling her eyes out in grief? Disgusting! TMZ and all the rest are cum and I'm not coming here anymore.

Oh, and FU to all the haters!

I think people need to leave them alone at a time like this. Especially people that say she should not have been traveling around the world helping with Charties. This is not something that a sick person would want her child to do is to stop everything until they die. People need to know that life is a gift and that as long as you stay in communication with them then you are perfectly fine. But nobody can stop somebody from doing what they loved and Angelina loved her mother dearly along with her children and Brad.
So please let them greive in private and us go about are business as being the nosey ones and the people with all the opinions that do not even count,.

Angelina and family are prayers are with you and we know that this is a hard time for the family but believe me it will get a slight bit better as time goes on but there will always be those sad days when tears will fill your eyes and you just want to talk or hug your mom. So please be strong that is probably what she would want for you. Take care and peace out.

i have no respect for jolie, we all know about cancaer, her mother was dying and she should have been at her side, and what was the poor woman doing in a hotel room, was jolie's dad there, she should have made up with him years ago, as if she is perfect, maybe a perfect whore....
pitt was pondering over what a mean thing how he left anniston, and how he can dump jolie, for cate blancard, mark my words this will be the next scandel.and jolie seems the type if this happens, she will be a woman scorned and nevaer let him see his children.

Shanna, maybe you should campaign for JA to rekindle her relationship with her mother since you know so much about how much time AJ spent with her mom and everything she said in this interview and that interview.

He should not be smoking after his mother in law died from cancer. Angelina does not like him smoking so he must have cut the apron strings for a second to grab a puff!

Since when does smoking make someone a "bad person" or a "bad father"? I think some of these comments on here are totally rediculous! Yes, I know smoking is bad for your health but people do all kinds of things that are bad for their health on a daily basis. I don't look at an overweight person who is eating a cheeseburger and say "oh they must be a terrible parent for eating that fattening food because it could kill them and it's a bad example for their children". Give me a break! Most of us probably grew up with parents who smoked and it didn't ruin our lives or turn us into dysfunctional human beings now did it? Brad seems to be a great father in every way that matters! He's going through a stressful time so there's no need to be so judgmental! All you people on here who are so quick to critisize these two need to ask yourselves if you are perfect.

My two cents    

How Angelina handled her mothers cancer and her death is HER business and I find it appalling that anyone here would challenge that. Was she supposed to be in her mothers face for the past 8 years or did her mother want her daughter to live her life? I think the latter. As far as Brad smoking a cigarette, that is HIS choice. You all are nothing but a bunch of friggen vulchers just waiting to attack someone. Friggen losers. Get a life.

I have read all the postings here & I can't help but add mine.

YOU PEOPLE ARE SUCH IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!
SHE PASSED AWAY OF OVARIAN CANCER. ANGELINA WAS INSIDE TAKING CARE OF HER MOTHER'S BELONGINGS, AND YOU PEOPLE ARE ON HERE TALKING ABOUT BRAD NEEDING TO GIVE UP SMOKING????
NOW, ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!
JUST ASK MY HUSBAND HOW GREIF STRCKEN I WAS WHEN MY MOTHER PASSED AWAY (SHE BATTLED ON FOR 3 YEARS).
MOST OF YOU HAVE NOT HAD TO GO THROUGH THIS; AND UNTIL YOU DO SHUT THE F-CK UP!!!! YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. ANGIE WAS VERY CLOSE TO HER MOTHER, AND HAD HOPES OF HER BEATING THIS. IT IS NOT EASY, TO SIT BY YOUR MOTHER'S BEDSIDE, AND WATCH HER FADE AWAY SLOWLY. IT IS GUT WRENCHING,
PEOPLE IN THE FAMILY START ARGUING, (ESPECIALLY SIBLINGS).
AND SOMETIMES BECAUSE OF THE MEDICATIONS, THEY DON'T EVEN REMEMBER YOU AT TIMES.
THE ROOM MY MOTHER PASSED AWAY IN IS UNTOUCHED.
THE PERSON THERE WILL NOT LET ANYONE GO IN JUST TO TRY & GET A GRIP THAT SHE IS REALLY GONE.

DOCTORS, NURSES, HOSPICE VOLUNTEERS, etc...TELL YOU THAT YOU NEED TO PREPARE YOURSELF. LET ME TELL YOU FROM EXPERIENCE;
Y O U A R E N E V E R P R E P A R E D!!!!!
WHEN YOU SEE THEM IN THE CASKET, WHICH I KNOW SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO WILL NOT WALK UP TO THE BODY BECAUSE THEY WANT TO REMEMBER THEM THE WAY THEY WERE.
DAMN, YOU PEOPLE ON HERE FOR ATTACKING THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WHO KNOWS WHAT GOES ON WITH ALL OF YOU @ HOME OR THE LOCAL PUB, CLUB, WHATEVER.

I WALKED OUTSIDE THE FUNERAL HOME FOR A FEW MINUTES AFTER MY MOTHER'S SERVICE, I WAS VERY UPSET, AND I SAW MY AUNT'S & UNCLES SMOKING UP A STORM FOR CHRIST'S SAKE. SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOULD IT HAVE DONE ANY GOOD FOR ME TO WALK OVER TO THEM AND PREACH ABOUT THEIR SMOKING?
LET ME GIVE YOU A HINT: THE MORE YOU NAG THEM TO STOP, THE MORE THEY SMOKE.
"JUDGE NOT, LEST YE BE JUDGED"

UNTIL YOU WALK IN THE SHOE'S THEY ARE WALKING IN
SHUT YOUR STUPIDASS' UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE ENTIRE FAMILY IS GRIEVING, SO TAKE YOUR CHEAP SHOTS SOME OTHER PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HER MOM JUST PASSED AWAY, ANGIE'S INSIDE.
BRAD'S OUTSIDE SMOKING A CIG.
CIGARRETTE'S ARE THE WORST HABIT TO KICK.
IT CAN BE DONE.

BUT, CAN'T YOU PEOPLE GET OFF BRAD'S ASS?????????????
SMOKING IS A DE-STRESSOR. (DO ANY OF YOU ALL DRINK, TAKE SOME "PILLS", ETC......???????)
I DO NOT SMOKE & NEVER HAVE!!!!!!

BRAD DOES NEED TO QUIT.
HOWEVER NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO DO IT BECAUSE OF THE STRESS HE IS UNDER!!!!

MY GOD, GIVE HIM SOME TIME TO QUIT.
PEOPLE GAWKING AT PEOPLE WHO ARE GREIVING NEED TO GO STRAIGHT TO HELL!!!!!!

Why bring Jennifer Aniston into this discussion. She is minding her business and living her life yet her name has to be mentioned.

Jennifer is doing fine and does not need Brad Pitt. He is probably thinking about the good times he's had with with his ex-wife. When you walk away from your wife/husband guilt rides you for the rest of your life. It does not just go away. You think about the person every day. I think Brad Pitt ponders his actions and wishes he could change the hands of time. This is the fact about divorce and break ups.

Watching his running from place to place just makes one wonder if he is truly happy with his new life. Raising young kids and drifting from place to place sure takes a toll on a person.

I am very proud of Jennifer and hope to God that she will find true happiness one day. It will take time but she will have her day in the sun.
