Laura & Jen: Separated by Angelina -- Literally!

3/17/2007 4:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The friendship between Laura Dern and Jennifer Aniston is proof that some good can come from the relationship-killing Angelina virus!

Jen Aniston, Laura Dern and Angelina Jolie
The two jilted actresses have been spotted around town a lot lately and share this in common: Both saw their men run off with gorgeous Oscar-winner/Goodwill Ambassador, Angelia Jolie. Girls, interrupted!

Although you may have heard that Brad Pitt allegedly hooked up with Jolie before after breaking up with Aniston, in 2000, Dern was reportedly still dating Billy Bob Thornton when he suddenly married Angie. Snap! Dern has since had two children with her husband, singer Ben Harper, while Jen is single and childless.

At least she has her friends!

Look at her...she's gorgeous. Women hate her because she sits outside the square, does and says things that people don't understand and people are uncomfortable with anything that is not the norm. Yeah, she scored Brad Pitt and he pretty much left Jennifer for her, but as some other people have stated, its only a big deal because it was Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. Lets face it, as much as I like them, they'll probably break up one day too, just like everyone else does.

Sorry but I don't see the beauty. She's got a horse head and the biggest hands and feet on any woman I've ever seen. This is one major nasty skank.

What is it TMZ--a slow news day? You have to try and fan the fires again for the Aniston fans? Laura Dern, as previous posters pointed out, took Ben Harper from his wife and I believe ditto for Billy Bob Thornton. But oh, this is okay, because she is not Angelina. And again as other posters have said--poor Jen, America will never get over her pain and humiliation because she won't let them and neither will you.
Angie has turned her life around and is a great humanitarian. Instead of baking her skin into leather at the beach like JA or whining to every publication around about how she is sick of this triangle she is in (yet brings up constantly)--Angie is giving homes to children who need them and helping refugees.
Go Angie. Go Brad. And Jen SHUT UP. You too TMZ!

The premise for this comment is so not fair . Why not say something like " two women with totally different reactions to a failed relationship " ? Laura Dern took then lost Billy Bob then she took Ben Harper and had a baby while he was still married to another . J. Aniston lost her husband and she is still ( with the aid of her publicist and fans ) playing the pity me story . I don't care how gorgeous a woman is the man who is really in love with his wife will not leave her for the beter looking woman . If Angelina was a man stealer then why didn't all of her other male co-stars leave their wives ? Let's be a litle more objective TMZ .

old news    

If a woman doesn't want to please her man, there's another woman who will. I agree TMZ news must be slow to be bringing up old news. Obviously the same thing happened to one of your writers and can't get over it.

Why so many haters, Angelina rocks. And why doesn't anyone ever get down on Brad. He was part of this whole thing as well.

My only concern is the pace of adoption. If they don't slow down they are going to wind up like Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, and we all know how that one ended.

Maniston looks like "COUSIN IT" from the Adams family. If anybody looks like a horse, it would be Maniston, look at that snouser and she's missing her top lip and barely has a bottom lip. The only way you know it's her mouth is when she opens it. When her mouth is closed it blends in with her chin.

Laura Dern stole Billy Bob from his wife and they had two children together.

I think it’s exceptionally rude for people to come on here and bash other posters because they offer an opinion.

A story is posted, we all come here to comment, and it’s a diversion for most and hobby or a job for others. You cannot force others to agree with your opinion, why can’t you simply say what you think of the celeb without insulting another poster and making assumptions on their lives

I guess the next thing is why do people make assumptions about celebs.,..they put their lives on show, people know more about them than their own family members, because these celebs and their publicists live off the helps to sell the new movies, so yes they care what you say and go to lengths to make themselves appear good in the media...its helps to sell those movie tickets....

I don’t believe anyone has the right to insult a fellow poster simply because they weight in their views whether negative or positive. If you cannot hold an argument politely then do not take the opportunity to use insult....if you disagree, state why you disagree and offer your two cents worth....

I also believe that the first person who throws out the insult show get as good as it gets....not every loves JOlie and not everyone dislikes her...accept...

People don’t make negative comments because they are JEALOUS or take the story personally...its a celeb, most of us should be able to separate this persons life form attack on a celeb based on interviews and media clipping is not a personal attack on you....if you can separate that it will go a long way is making you a good blogger....

When you marry and agree on having children with your husband then decide you no longer want to so you can concentrate on your career... expect your husband to leave you!!!! Family is the most important thing. JA is a spineless, whiney wimp and a poor excuse for a woman. GET OVER IT!!

Pitt and Jolie will not last..That is why she won't marry him!
She is really messed up on the real comittment issue..Everytime she gets a commintment issue depression she thinks the thing to do is adopt another child that she will not raise and the nanny will!
Pitt will get tired of waiting for Marriage!

When did having a child and family equate to personal fulfillment and what they got...and dont go looking for more to add to their collection...

Secondly I hate to disabuse thsoe who think anyone in hollywood is natural....they say plastic surgery plus other outpatient procedures only enhances what you beauty may have been there it just wasnt hollywood aceptable till the necessary tweaks...besides the plastic surgery consumers are more recognizant of teh fact that outer beauty doe snto make you any happier..the inside also needs work

Jolie had a nose job and cheek she grows skinnier it become more prominent like the hollywood barbie doll look...the size of her lips are hers, however she has had injections to make it more supple, getting rid of most of the natural creases, she also has had a few facial peels wiht Brad pitt also indulges it since he has pitted acne scars ..serious one tooo....
There is nothing wrong withplastic surgery but when you want people to beliveits genetics you run the risk of being exposed and rediculed,...I think what sh eneeds is to have her hands done

You onlyu have to look at Shiloh minnie me voight to know what jolie cheeks were like..neither of her parents have those cheek bones which she sports..most of her looks come from papa voight , her mother was not a hollywood looker, rather plain.,..

As several stars adopt and do good needs, they dont alert the media, yet we have to be told about jolie new adoption and the name she picked out,..she does not owe us an explanation on what does with her life, she can simply refuse to give out the information on her personal life. However fo thos seeking media attention, I guess they have to issue press releases to keep themselves in the media...........

Wether or not Jolie had com ealong..teh brad Jennofer marriage would have folded..Angelina hastened the process and saved them tons of money in therapy...however she is a homewrecker delaing double standards and fighting her mother's battles against her father for being a bad husband. Plus Jennifer is better elived with Pitt for 5yrs adn in that time hyou get agood measure, if one is hesitant to have a family , there must have been underlying reason..I am pretty sure she knew brad was never in for the long haul...h epretty much slept his way into hollywood and picked evry it girl every few years.....these two will not last long, for another woman will come along soon, who will be hot enough for superficial brad to move on...maybe this time it willbe a red head, I don't believe I have seen brad in red hair yet...get the dye ready...
