Brad -- Angie's No Homewrecktress

1/7/2009 3:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

So Brad Pitt is trying to explain what happened when he hooked up with Angelina Jolie, and we think he doth protest a bit too much.

Pitt tells W he was "still filming after Jen [Aniston] and I split up. Even then it doesn't mean that there was some kind of dastardly affair. There wasn't. I'm very proud of the way that it was handled. It was respectful." Tell that to Jen: She said it was "uncool."

Service, Ms. Aniston.

Let's see Brad Pitt made a commitment before God, through better and worse(I guess they should have covered Jolie). He broke his commitment to his wife, his family and to his God. He was lucky he did not do this stuff when people still obeyed God and stoned adulterers. If someone will cheat with you, they will cheat on you.

So what if Jen never has kids (I hope she does)
So what if Jen never finds love ( i hope she does)
So what if you think her work is crap (I don't), she was not a cheater, she does not wear blood in a vile around her neck, does not have to cover up tatooed names for a new lovers names to go on, she does make out with her own brother, she simply does not go out of her way to gain attention. I do not know her, but is seems she enjoys acting, loves handing out with her dogs and friends, loves her father, maybe has complicated relationship with mom, but who doesn't. Got hurt because she was cheated on. Ya, she is a real creep.

Who freakin cares? It will all be the same in 20 years. Except Brangelina will have another 15 kids and nobody will be wanting to talk about them anymore. And it looks like Jennifer Aniston will still be bitching about being wronged. Get over it. I am so sick of hearing about this...

There are many of us, who feel that Aniston and her PR have very shrewdley figured out a way for publicity’s sake, to garner sympathy and to try her divorce in the court of public opinion, in a bid to make people rally around her and against Jolie Pitt. She has taken advantage of the publicity surrounding her divorce, and used it to demonize Pitt & Jolie, while making herself blameless.
.
It all started with her Vanity Fair interview, and the impression that she tried to give was that she was left behind. Thus making Brad a cad, maybe not a cheating cad - but a cad nonetheless.
.
The very fact that you can say things like, ‘Brad cheated on her,’ and ‘Aniston was the victim,’ when Aniston herself has said the opposite, makes it plain that you don’t know what you’re talking about and it shows your bias.
.
Comments like yours are one reason why fans of Jolie and Pitt get so incensed at Aniston’s modus operandi. It’s true, we don’t know these people, we only know what they say. Given that, I’d remind you that so far, what Aniston has said is this:
.
1) she believes that Pitt didn’t cheat.
.
2) She believes they both tried as best they could during their marriage, and…
.
3) …lastly, after a long period of time passed where she appeared to be holding a grudge against Pitt, like her dear old Mom, she most recently has said that she finds Pitt ‘amazing,’ ‘admirable,’ and that she’s ‘proud of him,’ while oddly enough reserving mild snark for Angelina.
.
So I ask you, based on all the things that we know that they have said…
.
WHY are you STILL of that opinion? Do you happen to find men who cheated on you, or were lured away like stepford dummies, “admirable and amazing?” Most women with GENUINE beef do NOT.
.
I personally think sAniston has no beef of course, except for that fact that Jen Aniston didn’t get everything she thinks she deserves in life.
.
She just didn’t like how it appeared - Brad moving on so swiftly. That’s it and that’s all.
.
If you are still inclined to side with her for reasons unknown, then maybe you need to examine exactly what Aniston has said (since you only believe HER part of the equation), namely that the ‘fairy tale,’ and ‘golden marriage,’ was a lie. That they had their problems “rough and nasty patches,” that they spent 6 mos apart in 2003-4, and then 3 mos. in 2004 (all PRE Angelina and Mr & Mrs Smith). You also need to read their collective interviews where Brad says they may not go the distance, or her interviews where she doesn’t want to say he’s the ‘love of her life.’ He says they have no common goals, and thet he doesn’t know what she wants out of life. He says he’s always wanted 7 kids, she says, ‘no way.’ All speak to a marriage not doing too well - and so, based on what we have since learned, the marriage was over, Angelina or no Angelina.
.
Yet still, some women amazingly pine for this union that was not the greatest match-up to begin with. Why? If Brad had left 5 kids and a marriage of 10 years strong, the reaction wouldn’t have been this bad.
.
Some women need to look in the mirror and ask themselves why they are so quick to judge the fictional ‘other woman,’ when it turns out she was just NEXT.
.
That’s the biggest travesty of all for many fans of this amazing, inspiring couple and family, that they are being maligned by ignorant fans who side with whatever Aniston has to say, and are more than willing to fill in the blanks of what she doesn’t say - which she knows full well.
.
It’s manipulative, deceptive, and dishonest - but it all comes out in the wash - and a lot of people, have her number. In the industry, if not in the gen pop, which is also full of losers who get jealous when their exes move on. These are the types who will blame an innocent person and burn her at the stake, even one such as Angelina Jolie, who has so much to give to others, and is truly an inspiring amazing woman.
.
It’s sad, but at the same time - yeah we get angry, and we’re only too happy to defend the person we think an injustice is being done.
.
Aniston knows how her words are taken, it’s PR 101 — and even though she says her split was ‘100 years ago,’ perversely and strangely, she has no problem talking about comics that have her ’shooting Jolie’ (nice imagery in an age when stars are taking out restraining orders against crackpots), and bringing up Angelina’s quotes from magazine interviews she did TWO YEARS AGO and snarking about them??
.
I’m just amazed that so many angry bitter women who hate on Jolie, because she’s Jolie, are so gullible and can be played so easily. Unless of course they a

Hey # 57, I know what kind of women I am, and can tell you what kind of man you are, one that certainly knows how to justify an affair.

tom cruise didn't break up with nicole kidman because he wanted to date penelope cruz. He and penelope were just a studio-rigged romance. He broke up with nicole because she had a miscarriage, and since he's sterile there's no way he could have impregnated her. and if anyone says "yeah, but katie holmes had suri," i will be rolling on the floor in laughter. Also, the scientologists have nicole under lock and key. although she never truly committed, she went through some of the auditing, etc. That's when they find out EVERYTHING about you. Not to mention, it wouldn't surprise me if the scientologist's have even rigged up blackmail (like they did with travolta and anyone else in case they decide they want to leave) action on nicole. That's why she doesn't talk.

But, that really has nothing to do with Jen merely answering questions about her lying, cheating, ex-husband and his trashy, hypocritical girlfriend.

Hey, 8:54, Angie is the one who opened her mouth first after the dust had settled down. Saying that her children would be able to see when their parents fell in love. Vanity Fair ASKED Jen about the comment and she said uncool. Jen only answered the questions that Angie's comment brought. Anyway, I will never forget when Jen and Brad were are Oprah together and he had tears about a baby. I turned to my sister and said, he (Brad) is setting her (Jen) up. (I didn't know he was filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith at the time.) Marriages have ups and downs and most can get through without outside help which we know is not the case in Jen and Brad....Angie was wrong and so was Brad. Right is right and wrong is just wrong. Angeline was one of my favorite actress for years until hooking up with Brad now she just lies all the time. Before Brad she didn't feel like she had to explain herself or care ..but once you start lying it just keeps on. Angie is the one who made the comment she would never be with a married man....she lied and opened her mouth again. So stop blaming Jen. If another women/man took your mate why would you not answer a question after they just want shut up. And don't say no one can take a person from another; that is just stupid. As I stated earlier marriages have ups and down and timing is everything.

Disgusting    

Can't all three of these dullard poseurs go away?

They and their movies are boring. Jolie actually fired the first shot with her inappropriate comments and is prob pushing him to defend her, Pitt is over the hill and self-important and not an interesting actor, Aniston needs to stop complaining aout media attention or give back her millons and go away. This ongoing stupid commentary is so engineered to revive diminishing media image, box office appeal

Meanwhile, did they give away ALL the money from auctioning their kids pics as promised, last report was only a small part of it, exactly how much do they actually give vs.claim to give. You profit from a charitable image, you should be verified

Anonymous - who wrote the long-ass windbaggy saga of Jen's pr blitz - has some serious issues. Umm, people who defend Jen look at the facts --- her husband cheated on her with a hypocritical woman, and was very inconsiderate in the process. For some reason, you're focusing on your own delusions. Brad and Angelina are harping it up for the media about their reslationship everytime they add a kid or have a movie to plug. Angelina has not only huge lips, but a huge mouth that she can't keep shut from saying stupid, ignorant comments and can't keep off other people's men. She obviously has huge issues because of her father (who was a great actor, unlike her) and lashes out in this way. She is a textbok case for someone's psych thesis. jennifer aniston doesn't tout herself as a great actress, but an entertainer. and, she almost always is. her comedic timing on friends was impeccable (unlike brad who has no comedic talent). Whereas Angelina RUINED good shepherd and all the other gludge that she gets pushed into by pitt and clooney and all of their buddies. and if i have to even see one more trailer of her being yet another "badass inhuman woman with a gun" i'm going to throw up.
