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.

Just sayin    

I wont believe Brangalina actually produced any of those kids themselves until one comes out plastic. Have you ever looked at before pics of both of them?

Jennifer was dumped by her husband who decided to run off with a woman who is notorious for seducing other women's partners. Aniston was publicly humiliated and has to try to ignore a constant bombardment of tabloids plastering Brangelina every other week as if they are the parents of the century while often portraying her as a desperate loser with no kids. She has handled this with grace and dignity, even defending Brad in the beginning by saying she chose to believe him when he denied cheating. Angelina opened her big mouth bragging about how one day her children would be able to see the movie in which their parents fell in love. Oh puhleese, fell in lust is more like it. Jennifer Aniston has been smart enough and responsible to not have children when she doesn't feel ready to have them and damn good thing too since Brad still would have dumped her after falling for Jolie. They were photographed holding hands when they weren't shooting and thought no one was looking. Cheating is cheating, so stop trying to make it sound innocent.
Since when does having a child make one woman better than another? Why is it that Sienne Miller gets called all kinds of terrible names because Balthazar Getty has children, but Angelina and Brad are portrayed as the frikkin' Ozzie and Harriette Nelsons? These selfish morons drag their kids all over the world at their convenience, never allowing them to settle into school and make friends...no surprise there since Angelina has no use for friends so long as there is a man nearby that she can sink her claws into. Shiloh was no accident, that baby was a shrewd manuever to hook Brad and raise public favor and it worked. She was always carting Maddox around with a mohawk in his hair, which is now streaked and obviously raising him to have no self-respect and to be a "rebel". She buys the boys toy knives to play with but denies them friendships and any sort of schedule or continuity in their lives. That they would even consider having more children is so far beyond irresponsible, not only because the world is overpopulated and they already have three biological kids but the other three are adopted and each one of these kids needs and deserves individual attention. Instead they just let them run wild.
As for Brad, he seems to prefer his women barefoot and pregnant and then wonders why their life is chaotic. Give me a break, municipalities pass laws telling you how many dogs you can own but people like Brangelina think it's cute to have a huge family of children with no proper supervision.

Mary, good point and I actually didn't know that they were filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith when he made that pathetic little tearful statement of wanting to have kids. You are very perceptive and I completely agree with you.
I know we are always going to have the Brangelina vs Jennifer camps, heck people still talk about Liz Taylor and Eddie Fisher after all these decades but it makes me angry when people see the tabloid covers and believe the hyperbole. Jennifer is not desperate now that she's nearing 40. She is beautiful, fit, talented, intelligent, interesting and funny. As for having kids, she hasn't ruled that out but obviously doesn't feel they are a means to an end either. Not everyone has to have produce children.

Yeeeeeaaaahhhh right Brad! Pleeeaaasssee. Dont insult us you were emotionally and probably physically involved before you were divorced. I dont care if you were seperated from Jennifer - you shoul dhave waited until divorced. Thats what a decent man would do but thats now you now is it!

Bottom line whether you hate Angie or Jenn or whoevers side you are on Brad DID NOT WAIT UNTIL DIVORCED TO HOOK UP WITH ANGELINA AND THAT IS LOW CLASS. Out of respect for your ex (which he claims he has-this is his claim not mine) a decent man would keep it is his pants until divorce finalized. He says he didnt cheat but he is talking only about during the filming. Yes that may be true but after filming they were not divorced and he was with Angie. Regardless of if their marriage was over yada yada. Any man with morals would have waited until divorce settled. And Angie how low self esteem to you have to keep hokking up with married men (brad was not divorced, Billy Bob was not divocred).

Lets face it if Brad was divorced and did things properly he would be bagging on Jenn in public telling her to get over it etc. He has guilty conscious period!

When did the media start calling Angelina "Angie" as if she is everyone's little sweetheart? She's not attractive, I have a pleco that keeps my aquarium clean with lips like hers and the woman is bug-eyed. She has never had a hot body and her hair hangs like a brown rug on a clothesline. She cleans up okay for special events and although her mouth is a little too wide, I will concede that she does have a nice smile. My wife says Brad just looks grubby and scruffy these days and she wishes he would just take a shower and find a razor. She admits to having fantasized about him back in the day but says now he's just pathetic and sleazy. (if I told her my opinion of Jennifer Aniston she would kick my butt to the couch for a month so I will keep those little daydreams to myself...mmm. Oh, what? nothing honey I was just thinking about, uh, my new car. yup, I was thinking about my new car."

Yeah, right, no affair? Go tell another one you dumb a-hole. Angelina is known for being a skank ass whore who disrespects others' relationships to get what she wants; and Brad was still married when he started boning Angelina. Why was there no affair, Brad? Because the two of you denied being a couple for the longest time until you knocked Angelina up? Jen Aniston saying that Angelina was uncool, was an understatement, because that ho is much much lower than that. They can add as many kids as they want to their army, I have no respect for Brangelina when I look at them.

I think what you have to remember is that being fans, we may be more knowledgeable than you about the entire situation and may have read more first-person stuff about it.
.
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 abo

For my 2 cents worth about Courtney, I think she was pretty fair in the VF interview. She pointed out that Brad had told Jennifer of his attraction to Angelina, that he fought it for a period of time and that she didn’t think he cheated on her best friend. Brad didn’t, according to Courtney just turn tail and dash off as soon as he realised that his feelings for Angelina were strong. He was sufficiently committed to his marriage to fight an attraction and to give his marriage a shot - or else, why fight the attraction to Angelina at all?? Courtney is one of the reasons why I do think Brad didn’t cheat on Jennifer. Also, Brad actually, did try to resuscitate the marriage.

I also respect Courtney for having the guts to put herself on the line and star in a TV Series that is totally different to Friends. It is better to have tried and failed then never to have tried at all.

I hope that with Jennifer Aniston making movies that her fans will move on as she has done with her life. It is obvious to all those who will open their eyes that she and Brad were not compatible, they are really two very different people with very different outlooks on life. Premarriage, Brad was always a person who enjoyed exploring the world, meeting new people, there were stories of how he would just take off on trips and his family and friends had no idea where he was in the world. He also left bikes stashed all over the world and his attitude was well if they are there when I come back good if not I’ll get another one. Jen was a homebody who did not like to fly or lots of travel, liked her creature comforts, liked her circle of friends, was not comfortable in strange environments, content to go months(5+ months during the making of Troy for example)without seeing Brad.

They were not happy together, they tried to make their marriage work, their efforts failed, so they divorced. Truth is that there was some key element lacking in that marriage and in their relationship, they seemed more friends than lovers, and probably should have never married in the first place. You can’t marry someone thinking that you can change them into someone else. That never works. Jen’s dad remarked that Brad was in no hurry to marry and maybe he saw that the marriage was not to last.

I am not one who thinks that she should had had a baby if she did not want one. Women do have choices and she made her choice. But Brad definitely wanted children, repeatedly told everyone in the world that he did, with his 39th-40th birthdays may have felt the time is now, and that had to be a major flash point of conflict in that marriage. Jen knew this about Brad, but made the choice that she did as far as no children, either biological or adopted.

They both appear far happier to me with the choices they have made postmarriage. Both are now out from under the pressure exerted on them by the media to be "a perfect problem free golden couple", when in fact both were in counseling from the beginning of their marriage. Not a good sign for success.

I wish her well in her career, though I do not like her as an actress as she plays the same character over and over in the few movies I have seen on tv.

I also hope that now that she has new movies to film that some of you will really be fans of hers and support her, not only because she was once married to Brad with that being her only claim to fame in your minds. That is not complementary to her at all, either you are her fan or you are not. She should never be attached to Brad or Angelina in any way, they have separate lives, and any attachment to them is a slap in her face. She needs her fans to support her new projects and her life choices.

Now for the totally delusional ones who prattle that Brad is coming back to her, you all know in your hearts and brains that will never happen. Brad is permanently gone, he won’t be returning. And real fans of hers know that.

Well, let's examine Jennifer Aniston's marriage.

1) Let's remember Brad met Angie on the set of MAMS in 2004.

2) In 2003, why was Brad outside the country for 6 months filming Troy, while Jen only visited him 1 or 2 times.

3) In 2003, why was Jen busy filming movies while simultaneously taping TV friends in the USA?

4) In 2003, why wasnt Brad with Jen at Matt LaBlanc's Hawaii wedding?

Use common sense, there's BIG PROBLEMS IN THEIR MARRIAGE.

May be they should have been friends and NOT married in the 1st place.

I'm sorry to say that Brad and Angelina are both sinners and are both going to HELL. Jen is a sweet heart for not making a big deal out of it, God bless her.

I’m of the opinion that everyone acted OK in this deal IF Courteney was correct in her interview in saying that Brad tried to fix things before jumping in the sack with Angelia.

Jennifer got what she deserved and is responsible for her current situation. She’s gorgeous and should be a tremendous sexual partner. But she was/is obsessed with her career. She left her husband for months at a time alone. That’s just a recipe for what happened. MEN HAVE NEEDS!!! She wasn’t addressing (or undressing in this case) those needs. She doesn’t have a clue how to satisfy a man. Jennifer’s scene in “Friends with Money” where she just lays there motionless with her eyes open while some guy uses her body to masturbate with looks very natural. She didn’t have to study for that scene. Jennifer got what she earned, an ex-husband. It was her decision and I don't find fault with it other than both of them should have been clear on what each wanted out of the marriage.

Along comes Angelina with nowhere near the class or elegance but with a lot of raw sexuality. She was attracted to a man. Big deal, it happens every day. She gets a pass.

Brad never knew what hit him. He did know that a wildly sexual woman was a lot more fun than a frosty one. He did know that here was a woman willing to meet his emotional as well as physical needs. He gets a pass.

Anonymous: wow, and I thought I was occasionally guilty of being long-winded. I just don't get where people can accuse Jennifer of asking for sympathy. She is a very private person who only photo-ops and interviews when she is asked and when she is promoting a movie. She has been the epitome of dignity and fairness in this but has to continue dealing with the endless questions from the media and yes we all continue with the blogging and posting when items like this one show up. There is absolutely no truth whatsoever to the claims that she seeks pity or that she manipulates the media. I strongly suspect your motives though, are you James, Jolie's brother/smooching buddy? or perhaps someone even closer. Yeah, we're not entirely stupid you know.
