Jennifer Aniston claims it’s a misconception that she’s “feuding” with Brad Pitt

Jennifer Aniston covers the March issue of InStyle Magazine, all to promote her upcoming film, Wanderlust. That’s the film where she met Justin Theroux, back in 2010, when he was dating Heidi Bivens. Some say Justin and Jen hooked up on the set of the film, some say it happened months later, in the Spring of 2011. In any case, Jennifer is in full promotional mode, which means talking about her boyfriend. And talking about her ex-husband, of course. “Jennifer Aniston: Seven Years After BRAD!!!” Everybody is going to keep count, of course. Here are some highlights from Aniston’s interview:

Uncool Bermuda Triangle Misconceptions: “Which one? There are so many. I would say the triangle with my ex-husband – and that there’s a feud there. It’s constant. It’s a story headline that won’t go away, but it’s a money thing – [people make money off] a story that has nothing to do with reality.”

Her previous relationships sucked: “Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down what you actually do want. As I get older, I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won’t settle for.”

On her culinary skills: “I’d love to say I’m an accomplished cook, but I don’t have any signature dishes. I’m good at breakfast – I make great eggs. My father gave me a little recipe. It’s all in the seasoning. But it’s a Greek secret. I won’t give it away!”

On her favorite thing about boyfriend Justin Theroux’s style: “First of all, he has great style – it’s very specific, and it has been his style forever. Has it influenced mine? No, but I know people say it has.’Oh, look, you’re dressing alike.’ And I think, no I’m not. I’ve had this jacket for three years!”

On what career she’d pick if she had to change: “Directing. I was very proud of producing and directing for the beautiful project ‘Five.’ Or I’d love to be a dermatologist. I’d be so obsessive about it. I’m fascinated by skin, products, and lasers. I go on the Internet and read all about it. I call it ‘laser porn.’”

On the biggest risk she’s taken in life: “I’m not sure. Just walking out of the house can be a risk!”

Feeling old: “You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and think, Aren’t we kind of the same age?” the 43-year-old says. “I don’t feel my age. I feel young every day.”

I understand the point she’s making about the Bermuda Triangle and how much other people profit from it, but she does realize that she’s profited from it extensively too? She got to play the victim for years and years, and it became part of the “good girl” image that defined her career throughout the last half of the aughts. And besides that, STILL talking about her ex-husband (seven years later) is still the best way for her to get headlines. Oh, and I don’t buy that the feud is just in our heads either – remember when Brad’s Parade interview came out? The next week, Us Weekly’s cover story came directly from Team Aniston, all about how poor Jen was the victim of Brad’s evil ways once again.

But for her sake, I hope Justin is “the one”. I hope they’re very happy together. And I hope Heidi Bivens gives a tell-all interview in which she plays the victim.

    Honestly, if it weren’t for this “feud”, we’d have forgotten about her. She’s just not interesting.

    • skuddles says:

      Very true Ziggy – the only interest I have in Aniston (and it’s minimal) is the supposed triangle aspect. If not for that, I would have forgotten about her long ago.

    • k says:

      Very true. And her hair, her style is sooooo boring.

    • Lisa says:

      Brad STILL talking about his ex-wife (seven years later) is still the best way for him to get headlines. People it works both ways. So stop. Team Jennifer.

      • original sandy says:

        now see?, this head line made me come on here to defend brad from the delusional jennieloons,after stating i have not, brad moved on 6 years ago and never looked back, trying to distant himself from her and her pr,and few fans, 6 yrs. later he talks about how he felt in his life yrs. ago, and people are still hanging on to that 1, count them 1 time he says anything, how has pitt ever used her name for attention?, while every one knows it’s an ongoing thing for her and her pr. team to use him and his name, pitt does not need her, on the contrary, she needs him. leave him out of your mouth ja, earn something on your own talent for once in your career.

      • Freya says:

        I agree with original sandy. Brad was talking about himself(!) in the Parade interview. What he said upset the ex, so he had to explain it. It ended up like he was talking about her. He really wasn’t!

      • Guest says:

        Actially pop rocks Jens uncool vogue comment was about Angie being excited to go to work with brad. Secondly have u forgotton in Dec 2008 in gq when Jen talked about AJ again plus she mentioned Zahara n Knox. Aj has only said anistons name once in 2006

      • deltona lakes says:

        Let’s not forget the voicemail messages

        “I still have the cassette tapes of messages from my first boyfriend, my second boyfriend, my husband… it’s like saving love letters,” Jennifer told Marie Claire magazine. Feb 2009

        She referred to Brad as her husband. Although they were officially divorced for 4 1/2 years.

        Brad asked reporters in the past not to bring up third parties that has nothing to do with him or his family.

        Oh the “not cool” remark about Angie almost year after after Angie’s Vogue interview. But of course, she was promoting another worthless movie.

        It’s so obvious from this interview that she googles herself everyday. She seems to know that people are commenting that she’s dressing similar to the boyfriend.

      • pwal says:

        Again… mass hallucination persists. Brad didn’t mention Aniston in the Parade article – the writer did, as indicated by the brackets.

        And frankly, fans and writers continue to indicate that Brad is the only Aniston ex that counts. For some reason, Brad walking away silently and without fuss and muss rankles Aniston fans, hence the complete amnesia exhibited towards Vince Vaughn who took up with a college coed the weekend after he and Aniston called it a day and John Mayer, who held an impromptu corner side news conference with the paps. And Paul Sculfor got no hate when he took up with one of Aniston’s peers, Cameron Diaz. Why is this? Because Brad is doing exponentially better without Aniston. Making better movies consistently after Aniston; having the family/love life he wanted after Aniston; and getting more award recognition for acting and producing after Aniston. Versus Aniston who has more free time and a tenuous obligation to maintain relationships since she seems to change boyfriends with the seasons… how is her production studio, Echo Films, doing? Because the last time I checked, her producing partner, Kristin Hahn, had enough time to talk to a tabloid about Aniston’s love life versus… hello… PRODUCING A MOVIE!

    • LunaT says:

      Agreed. Both she and Brad need to hush about their relationship. They both talk about it and use it for press. Over it.

    • LadyT says:

      Let’s see what happens if she stops discussing Brad and strickly discuss Justin’s career. Wonder if she would fall off the face of the earth?

    • Freya says:

      How odd. She should be talking about her current bf, not about the man who left more than 7 years ago.

  2. marie says:

    I don’t think there is any fued…after a while a person looks at an Ex as exactly that an “Ex” You move on.She seems for down to earth.

    • originalone says:

      Hail Marie! Finally some common sense.

      Brad has been talking again non-stop how he used to be a depressive dope-head pre-Angelina (i.e. a not-so-hidden reference to his years with Jennifer), in order to promote his road to Oscar of course. And as always, missing that sensitivity chip that would just make him stop talking about his past. Because in everyone’s mind who is half-interested in Hollywood, his past is directly connected to Jennifer Aniston.

      Aniston has a movie to promote, she looks good, photoshopped and all (however, we must give it to her that her body is banging for real), and is in a monthly magazine.

      Let’s hope she stays cool and takes the high road, and doesn’t talk about the Bermuda Triangle anymore. And also, she keeps it clean with not much TMI (side eye to Bradley’s last interview).

      Would rather listen to all the nakedness in the movie, and how comfortable that was!

      • Linda says:

        They only way Brad has been able to generate any interest in his movies is to bring up Jen…he does it all the time!! Of course women are going to defend Jen when the cheater husband comes out and makes comments seven years after the fact to promote a loser of a movie in Moneyball…it’s either that or he starts taking the kids out…or he knocks up Angie again or they adopt… I’m always amazed at how Brad is not called out for continuing to drag this out – is he not making money from this or is Jen the only one making the money… Hello Pot…Kettle calling…

      • AnnieK says:

        So can we finally stop being Team Aniston or Team Jolie, and agree that we should all just turn our contempt to Brad Pitt — the adulterer who compares his ex-wife to his current wife whenever he needs media coverage?

      • Katherine says:

        “Linda says:
        They only way Brad has been able to generate any interest in his movies is to bring up Jen”


        The funniest and most ridiculous thing I have ever read about this topic.

      • Josephina says:


        There you go again…with that victim crap…”smelling like rose?” WTH? In what planet are you still convinced that Brad WANTED to stay married to Jen? Did he not say “deadend”, did he not say “pretending the marriage to be something that it is not”, did he not say “fake golden couple?” How many times do you want to get beaten up with the truth that he just was not that into her?

        Again, you cannot keep a man that wants to leave. But I bet some of you nimrods would try.

        Stop blaming Angie for that joke of a marriage. Both partners were in therapy within the 2nd year of marriage, both parties were equally non-committed to its future and NEVER ON THE SAME PAGE, and Aniston stated that she knew her marriage was over by the summer of 2004.

        I tell you, JenHens are VERY SLOW learners…

        There is no way I would be speaking in public or in print about a man, husband or boyfriend, that left me to be with another woman, who gives all of his time, sperm, joy, effort, blood, sweat and loyalty to another woman and sit back while he proudly claims that she is the love of his life. And to boot his career kicks off in another orbit as well?

        I would very keen at not looking like a victim. I would be very focused on making him part of a distant past. I WOULD NOT ALLOW COMPARISONS TO INVOLVE ME AND HIS CURRENT LOVE IN ANY WAY. I would not allow my friends to get involved or to speak to the media. And I would quickly replace his memory with new relationships…AND NOT LOOK BACK. THERE WOULD BE NO TRIANGLE.

        I would do exactly what Heidi is doing — keep moving with no explanation because none is needed.

      • Capella says:

        Actually, there is a simple explanation, and an example, of why people are still not buying that Jen and Brad were over before “moving on” with A.:

        Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner.

        Huh? you say. Well, look at them. How many times in the past 3 years has everyone said they were over? That he doesn’t want to be with her. That he constantly cheats. That Blake Lively was trying to “steal” him from her (twits, please! you cannot steal a grown-ass man. He simply leaves. Whether cowardly or like a man is to be discussed).

        Look at them now. Like any REGULAR MARRIED couple, they had issues. Some we have speculated about, others we have no idea of. But they had problems. And what did they do to look so f-cking happy right now? They worked on their problems. No need getting a third party into it.

        And that is why, women of experience and self-worth, are having a hard time forgiving Angie. Because she got into the middle of a MARRIED couple, who without her meddling and screwing with the married man, could have quite possibly worked on their marriage, and stayed married. There are too-numerous examples in real life, and Hollywood life, to be given in support of this statement.

        So please, let us not call Ange the Saint a savior. However, we can move forward, and understand that Jen is no more a victim, and had gotten over her broken divorce, and that Brad has moved on with Angie, and they have kids now to think of, and take care of.

        We should all stop buying into that triangle. They have moved on out of that zone.

      • Josephina says:

        @ Capella,

        Where and when did Jen say that Brad cheated? She was asked and she did not believe he cheated on her. Courtney Cox also spoke out about this in 2005 as well.

        Thank God Brad is smart! What would have been the purpose of staying married to a neurotic wreck like Aniston when you want to leave? He got out after 4.5 years of marriage, 2 years of therapy and now is extremely happy living a purpose driven life. Well done, Brad!

        You must have been in a coma the last few years and missed Brad’s latest series of interviews where he completely dedtroyd the “golden couple” image when he said it was fake, revealed that he was depressed, a weed smoker, a couch potato, and was in therapy by the second year of his marriage. The ONLY thing Brad had going on was his looks, and you think that can keep a woman warm at night? How about him having a natural interest in her?

        So, neurotic Aniston was OK with settling for half a man, as long as he was cute, and thought her marriage would last? She threw her self-worth and self-esteem right out of the window!

        That marriage was DOA by the time Brad met Angie. They were a mismatch from the very start. Whatever lifestyle Brad/Aniston had was NOT sustaining Brad. He talked this (leaving) over with Aniston who wanted to stay married. At that point, whatever he once felt had permanently and gradually changed over the years AND NOT overnight just because he met Angie. Tough to hear, but true. Kudos to Brad for being true to himself, leaving and not looking back. He actually congratulated Vince Vaughn when Jen and Vince started dating durig their legal separation!

        So stay mad all you want, it is your choice and foolery. Jen was NOT the right woman for Brad. Everyone can see that now. Wisdom can be put to good use. Angie is Brad’s soulmate. Brad did not waste any time, unlike his time with Aniston, to build a future and family once he found a woman suitable for him.

      • Capella says:

        @Josephina, notice how I kept my comment clean, and did not bring you down?

        Try it, it is called: Basic Human Decency. Do not let your fanaticism make you look bad honey, and no need to insult others to look good. You just don’t.

      • Jess says:

        @Capella:Some couples break up without a 3rd party involve. Can’t force someone to stay with you if they don’t want to and we’re talking about Hollywood here, not your regular married couple. If they want to leave, they just do it and there’s nothing you can do about it. Move on.

      • Capella says:

        @Jess, I absolutely agree with you! Some just need to move on.

        I simply wanted to pinpoint why most women still… feel so strongly about Ange. Brad and J’s was not the first relationship she had broken up. And the way you never heard rumblings about their break-up before Brad and Ange started filming… That is why I always say, you wait for the divorce papers to be signed. You never hook-up with a married man, specially if he is newly separated, and specifically if he was still living with his wife.

    • Josephina says:


      I find Aniston to be a very immature woman for her age. She lacks substance. It wasn’t surpising to me at all that her marriage ended. I am open to seeing a 43-yr old grow up and learn from her choices in life. Aniston’s growth, however, has been slower than a snail’s pace and oftenimes, she’s appears to be standing in cement.

      Earlier, I said… you must have been in a coma, ie, not knowing about Brad’s latest comments. He made it clear he was done for MANY reasons. When a man tells you he’s done right in your face (which is what Brad did),… beleive him.

      That Aniston still wanted to keep discussing a closed chapter, TO THE PUBLIC IN 2005 through 2012, was poor judgement, especially after the decision to divorce was already underway.

      Is it her prerogative? Yes. Wise choice? Hell no. She was judged on her actions to speak about personal details of her divorce. It showed that she did not take responsiblity for the demise of her marriage. Throughout 2005 she gave the air of a broken-hearted, doting, faithful wife still wanting Brad when she really was an embarassed, humiliated, scorned, bitter ex-wife who really did not understand why the marriage ended… so because of cowardice, she let Angie be the patsy.

      Now, pour in all remaining interviews of Aniston from 2006 through 2012, and the neurosis of talk of Brad/Angelina grows. If you are not aware of the many Aniston quotes and interviews, google it.

      • Josephina says:

        @ Capella

        I just read Jess’ response to you. She gets it. You do not. A spouse is not obligated to your emotions once legally separate. When a couple is legally separated, he/she is free to date without stipulation (that inlcudes residence), no questions asked. That is exactly what happened. Aniston made a public statement implying such at that time.

        Another difference is I can see a man running away from Jennifer due to her neurosis, immaturity, vapidness, and vindictiveness. Fans see Aniston as a great catch. And so therefore, the hottest man alive leaving Aniston does not make any sense. So they suspect foul play.

        Brad moved on quickly for many reasons, the largest being QUALITY OF LIFE. Angie had that life that Brad now shares. This is what has Aniston and her fans so upset. After all, he was supposed to be so in love with Aniston, right? Now everyone knows that was NOT the truth. That’s embarassing for Aniston and her fans. The truth hurts.

        If Aniston was OVER Brad in 2005 and not crying in interviews you and I would not be having a discussion.

        Apparently, Brad knew best the nature and the temperature of his marriage. His actions revealed that that marriage was over long before the January 2005 announcement. His actions, lifestyle, and subsequent have been consistent for 7 years. There has not been any revising, just a bunch a women in extreme denial that Brad really was not that in love with Aniston.

      • Capella says:

        Sorry, I have to finish reading the first Game of Thrones first before reading your long obsession with Aniston. The book looks shorter, and less delusional.

        Will let you know in a few weeks what I think.

    • Kara Ann says:

      @ Capella,

      You expressed your point of view beautifully. I agree and appreciate the thoughtfulness.
      As far as responding to the “book” above, why bother? I believe that bystanders reading both posts, regardless of whom they favor, will see who is trying to have a mature exchange.
      BTW, I loved Game of Thrones!!

  3. Asli says:

    Yeah, I bet you had the jacket before but what about the cropped jeans, fedora and ugly ass boots.

    Anyways, I believe that they all benefitted from ‘ze feud’. If Brad hadn’t left Jen and gotten with Angie right after Mr. & Mrs. Smith they wouldn’t be tab headliners daily. Just think about it. It’s 2012, Brad is still married to Jen, Angie is raising her adopted kids alone. Boring.

    • patw says:

      she had the cropped jeans before THeroux. she had the boyfriend jeans, the tank tops, the scarves, the all black ensembles, the glasses. the only new thing really is the combat boots. And don’t see what the big deal is about that.

      • Asli says:

        She might have had it before but she’s changed the way she wears it and with what. And, yes, people are allowed to change styles. Jen is saying here that she’s always had that style. No, no she hasn’t. Her style was more girly and feminine and ever since meeting Justin she’s been moving into hipster territory.

        I’m not a Brangeloonie or a Jen hen. I think they all should just move on. Which I think Jen is trying to but it’s hard for her. She’s in ‘the box’ now. She’s the hottie in the movies. She isn’t really getting diverse roles. I think that’s her biggest problem right now. Not this tabloid-crap.

    • Shoes says:

      Yeah, people have moaned about her love of black for forever. She definitely had the cropped/rolled jeans before. I’m not sure how that’d be from him anyway. I don’t really associate that style of jeans-wearing with New York hipsters.

    • barb333 says:

      @Asli, she said she had the jacket for 3 years not that she has had that style for years. She said he has had that style for years. I do not care about her one way or the other but let’s not change what she said. :-)

  4. Rhea says:

    The 1st and second pic doesn’t look like her….where is her famous jaw??

  5. NO SH¡T says:

    Can everybody put this sh-t to rest already seriously……its been 7 long years!!

  6. HappyJoyJoy says:

    She’s so vanilla. Boring, not a particularly good actress, not interesting if she’s not talking about Brad. Meh. I don’t see the appeal.

  7. Original Chloe says:

    1) I actually like that last picture
    2) Please, lady, you *invented* profiting from the Bermuda triangle

  8. T.C. says:

    I honestly don’t know why Jennifer Aniston has such a successful career. She totally benefits from the triangle gossip and all the women who feel betrayed by men in the past holding her up as the ultimate victim. Outside of that she is just meh as an actress and boring as a person.

  9. patw says:

    They’ve ALL profited from it. Angie would never have been as famous without hooking up with Brad. The relevance of them as a family unit is wrapped up in the triangle as well. Brad/Angie sell the most when it relates to the triangle. The Parade interview blew up because it was made to link back to Aniston. The circus became so bad, that Brad had to do a clarification where he sang Aniston praises and called her his friend.

    And sorry – just because you say a US Weekly cover was courtesy of Aniston’s team, doesn’t mean it’s fact. I’ve never understood this assumption that tabs are false for other stars, but for Aniston it’s ALL TRUE… it just doesn’t lend weight to your opinion.

    • T.C. says:

      Angie was already famous before Brad. She was the edgy hot girl that everyone wanted to talk about. Her father is famous. Even if she didn’t get Brad she would still be followed. Brad is meh just like Jennifer Aniston. Outside of his looks he is boring but at least he is a good actor and challenges himself, unlike Aniston

      • LoveMeDo says:

        Before Brad, Jolie was famous for bloodletting, brother kissing and practically dry humping her now ex Billy Bob Thornton. Since Brad she’s dropped the bad girl image ‘somewhat’.

      • Josephina says:

        BEFORE BRAD Angie had already won

        1 Oscar
        2 Golden Globes
        3 Screan Actor’s Guild

        AND she was a mother

        AND she was a goodwill ambassador to UNHCR

        Aniston has had several relationships since Brad. (Brad’s previous relationship prior to Angie is Aniston but not vice versa.) Yet she acts as if the other boyfriends/f*ckbuddies have no relevance to her today. Brad’s marriage with Aniston WAS NOT WORKING. Thank God he left and now, Brad/Angie’s career continue to flourish on a higher level but in the background of the needs of their lovely family. That is the way it’s supposed to be.

        As for Aniston? She has the rest of her life to figure out what she wants and who should be her partner. Today Justin is her boyfriend.

        NOTE: I noticed she isn’t projecting any future with him. She doesn’t describe him as the love of her life, her great love, (which she would know by now)….

    • Original Chloe says:

      I think Jolie got her Oscar before she even met Pitt, no?

      • patw says:

        Umm no way. She was never at this level of fame. Her fame level pre-Brad was the equivalent of one of Rooney Mara/Eva Mendes or something. And winning an AA doesn’t really factor in here either. I don’t get the correlation with fame.

      • Original Chloe says:

        Okay, so I checked – she got it in 1999. You don’t get the correlation between an Oscar and fame, patw? (just making sure)

      • YokoDMV says:

        @patw because an Oscar (for the most part) = A list. Regardless, she had an Oscar, two or three golden globes, cover of american vogue, and already completed tomb raider at least a few years before she met Brad. The reason the triangle is so “major” is because each actor was already “big” in their own right and with certain audiences prior to Mr & Mrs. Smith and the ensuing drama….

      • Wendy says:

        Because Adrian Brody is totally in the spotlight due to his Oscar right? Halle Berry gets good roles? Pffft. Not hardly…

      • YokoDMV says:

        @Wendy…again(for the most part)and Halle and Adrian Brody are B list at worst…

      • Wendy says:

        My point being: an Oscar does not necessarily give you the level of fame that constant tabloid coverage does. Seriously, why does anyone even know who the Kardashians are or Paris Hilton? We hear about them way more than we hear about 99.9% of every living Oscar winner. Oscar does not equal high levels of fame, unlike what some are trying to say.

        Btw, I’m pretty sure that the “wild child” persona was crafted with exactly that purpose in mind, attention. Only she pushed the limits of “shock” too far with the brother smooching at the Oscars. And I honestly think the Academy will probably never forgive her for that stunt. Nominations she might get, wins… no.

      • Mari says:

        Oh, wendy, please do tell me whoat did poor Peter O ‘Toole did or say to piss the Academy off so he has been nominated like 8 or 9 times in all his long life and never has won? Bull c’rap

      • dede says:

        @mari..dont mind Wendy she and poprocks are on here spouting out at the mouth because aniston once again brought up the triange..Adrian Brody got an oscar but what else after that?AJ received 6 major awards by the time she was 24..before Brad she was named sexiest women alive and she was a respected humaitarian im lauging at you comparing her to eva haters are hilarious

      • Josephina says:

        @ dede and mari,

        Wendy, patw and poprocks should go visit Angie’s IDMB site before they hawk and spit. Then they would know that Angie has been nominated MANY times already in her career before and during her life with Brad.

        They probably experience the same intellectual growth challenges Aniston continues to face when it comes to learning from a failed marriage/relationship. As a result, all of their relationships have an expiration date and they don’t have a clue why….

      • patw says:

        omg – it has nothing to do with being NOMINATED or the number of awards. Michelle Williams has a better body of work, but I don’t see her front page all the time. There’s a weak correlation between the two. Don’t you get it? My point is her level of fame sky-rocketed post relationship with Pitt. She wasn’t a household name, she wasn’t on every tabloid cover, she wasn’t making forbes richest celebs list, etc etc – it all happened post-Pitt. And the scrutiny and fame was heightened by the triangle story. Hence they ALL benefited from it. I don’t see why this is being disputed – it’s fairly obvious.

      • Wendy says:

        It’s being disputed because these ladies don’t like to acknowledge that AJ is actually the one who has benefitted the most. Pitt was already massively famous as was Aniston when they got together. Both for their careers, not their private lives. The same can’t be said for Jolie. But shhhhhh, no one is supposed to notice that….

    • Nikki says:

      Angie was already Very famous before Brad. What she got with Brad was intense media scrutiny and 30 cameras stuck in her kids faces.

      • Rhea says:

        @ Pop Rocks : It’s better than get the photos stolen and the money goes to the paparazzi’s pocket! Might as well sell it and the money can goes to the charity. And please, there are more urgent laws that needs to be passed on like the immigration law or gay/lesbian marriage in America. People would tell the Jolie-Pitt to suck it up and move to France if they ever dare to suggest the law that ban putting a pic of their child at the media ;)

    • islandgirl says:

      Angie was famous before pitt and to compare her to rooney mara is an insult and I think that is what you are doing. I can say the same about Aniston would she be so famous if she had not married pitt. I don’t think so.

    • Josephina says:

      The Brange sells because of their LOVE STORY and how they had to beat the odds to find each other, come together and make a family just like in fairytales. Anyone who loves love stories likes the Brange.

      Aniston caters to the bitter, scorned ex-wives, the pathetic “Brad come back to me, wah wah” fans, the crazy FFers, ALL of the women and men who have been dumped and STILL not over it.

      Aniston is more like a fifth wheel or Cinderella’s delusional stepsister that thinks Prince Charming is in love with her.

      Aniston’s fans need the Brange. Who else can they dump their hate and jealousy on? This is why she has been named the “Sad Spook.” She is a forgotten part of the past, hopefully trying to “spook” those in the present.

      The Brange does not need Aniston. Aniston does not dominate any red carpet if she appears or dominate the the theatres if she is the lead actress. Angie’s life and statuesque physique alone has had many followers, adding Brad made it colossal and necessary to create the large family that they have.

        Are you trying to imply they are equally yoked? Hah! Not by a long shot.

        Novel my *ss. Brad and Angie are the “King and Queen of Hollywood”

        Aniston is known as the “Sad Spook” or “Ticky.” She is more like the 5th wheel.

        No one cares if Aniston shows up at all. Anywhere. Fact. There is no concern as to whether she will show at an event.

        The crowds go wild at EVERY. SINGLE. PREMIERE. OVER. THE. LAST. SEVEN. YEARS.

        Aniston has done twice as many movies and does not draw a crowd on the red carpet, or stop traffic the way that the BRANGE does.

        No one is screaming to see Jennifer at premieres the way they lose their minds and yell if Brad/Angie show up alone OR together.

      • patw says:

        Josephina – you are so effing delusional:”No one cares if Aniston shows up at all. Anywhere. Fact. There is no concern as to whether she will show at an event.”

        This is why I can’t take you seriously. You know sh$t. Like her or hate her, but she sells. Even Lainey, a brangieloon, said she would be THE A-list guest to get on your carpet. End of 2011, she was one of the most searched celebrities, one of the most profitable magazine cover girls, landed on many top 10 polls, her movies make money, and she makes a mint. None of that happens without people ‘not caring’. Please.

      • Josephina says:

        @ PATW–

        My response will take whatever direction I want it to go.

        Do you really think that Aniston is at the pinnacle of her FILM career? No? Ever wonder why?

        Aniston is better suited as “Housewives of the A-Listers.” Only then would her interviews and her relevance make more sense. BUT she says she is a film actress, and so our expectations rise. And there’s the rub. She can’t fill the shoes. Where is Kristen Wiig anyway?

        What the hell does this bish do with her time? Drink wine, exercise, tan, hang out, entertain, blah. Blah. Who does she spend time with? Shady ass Chelsea Handler and her Squiggy look-alike boyfriend.

        She has the same daily schedule of any housewife in Beverly Hills or Orange County.

        So this California, fake-blonde, beady-eyed, Jay Leno-chinned, shallow “beauty” cannot see herself playing someone’s mother? Is she not 42-43 years old? Maybe she should start hanging out with Paris Hilton and other young heiresses…you know, her peer group.

        You admire an airhead like Aniston, who picks losers that bail on her, and has a 14-year-and-counting track record of not being able to keep a man. Truth is, Kim Kardashian could give her some advice.

    • dede says:

      Pop rocks you actually spent the time to count how many times AJ was on people mag..WOW you my friend are the on who is obsessed..who does that/..secodly AJ was always famous before Brad regardless of her flops she was named Esquires first sexiest women alive and she had the most proftiable female led action movie..people had always been curious about her..aniston has profitted the most…without Brad she would be as famous as Coutney and Lisa Kudrow.

      • patw says:

        Aniston was also famous before Brad. Friends saw to that. Did her level of fame increase with Brad? Of course. My point is that the same thing happened with Jolie -she was never as famous as she was before Brad. Her exposure at every level increased. A lot of it courted, but still the interest was generated. And this interest was heightened by the triangle story. You to say otherwise is just garbage.

    • Mari says:

      People has become more tabloid-y these last years, no wonder that it now portraits tabloid-like stories. Before, they used to cover real people interesting stories. Not anymore.
      As for how many covers this and that, I have no idea how many covers has any of the other five friends have got in comparison of the ones jen gets in reference to the triangle… In any magazine or tabloid. Face it, she became more relevant with the triangle. Even mainstream mags covered her rebirths, the uncool, the No regrets, thetime of now enjoy, the man of the year, the great body award, new hook ups and Breakups, baby or not baby, over and over again… For 7 years! High profile divorce+ huvane= yeqrs of good publicity

      • Rosalee says:

        I started laughing so hard pepsi came out of my nose..come on..actors becoming living saints, Jolie and Pitt or lost lonely figures, Aniston, they play into your fantasy of a lives you will never achieve. Pitt and Jolie did not have this status prior to becoming a couple. They recognize their power comes from being together therefore the constant view of their sex lives or of the child army..Jolie is a master of the image machine as for Aniston, she has stated over and over again she’s not a victim..she is rich and looks like she’s having her cake and eating it with both hands. All three have reached a level of fame by simply cheating and hooking up, and mix in a group of crazy people who read and believe the cheap and sleazy stories dreamed up by the tabloids.

  10. layla says:

    1. You may have had that jacket for three years… but you’ve changed the way/style you wear it. Fact.

    2. As for feeling old – I have to agree with her on this – I have the same moments when Im joking with 20-somethings and then have that next moment when I realise that I am infact not still mid 20′s but closer to 40! (thou.. I still FEEL 25!) – haha.

  11. The Original Mia says:

    Why even address the Triangle? Because that’s literally the only thing of interest she’s been involved with in the last 7 years.

  12. CL says:

    But it’s not a misconception that she’ll talk about said “feud” to sell a movie.

    • patw says:

      I think it’s a harmless comment. it doesn’t really fan any flames, but brings a bit of reality to the circus. can’t fault her for wanting that.

      It’s a better comment than implying you’re ex-wife was responsible for making you feel bored about the direction of your own life, or however the tabloids spun it.

  13. sm255 says:

    Okay, raise your hands if you are over ‘America’s Sweetheart’, Cruella DeVille and Thy Golden Boy triangle.

    In other news, there’s a guy in my class that looks exactly like Brad Pitt. Weird.

  14. Linda says:

    I’m a big Jen fan…and I absolutely love it when people talk about her hair and how boring it is…I look at Celebrities with the same boring hair style that they’ve had for years and poor Jen is the only one picked on..let’s see there’s Cher, Angelina Jolie, Demi Moore, Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Courtney Cox, Meryl Streep – heck when’s the last time Liza Minelli changed her hair…but let’s just point out that Jen has a style she’s comfortable with…and all you people out there complaining about her boring hair style -when’s the last time you changed yours?!?!!?

    • Lady D says:

      In ’76. My charming (read terrifying) stepmother attacked me with scissors when I was 16. She was angry because she had forgotten my birthday. My hair was above my ears when she was done. I have not cut it since. I think my hair is very pretty now. Something she couldn’t take away from me. Baby steps.

    • xploxite says:

      Everytime JA grew her hair long angie’s fans / people who work for her(I’m not buying it if they say they’re not her fan) start saying boring hair cause it kills them to see her with beautiful long sexy hair. I love her hairdo in these photos specially the last photo I’m going to have my hair done exactly the same way, I hope she doesn’t fall into their trap & cut her hair short.

  15. Leigh says:

    That last photo is just stunning.

  16. Venice says:

    I like the last picture. It looks good.


  17. JudyJudyJudy says:

    considering the years and years of bad movies (other than the good girl) it is amazing how much press she still gets. All 3 of the triangle make so so movies…but at least the Jolie-Pitts do some serious philanthropy. Jen? Not so much.

    • Wendy says:

      She does charity. Only she’s not so “in your face” about it.

      • JudyJudyJudy says:

        you mean in your face like building houses in new orleans and working with the united nations kind of in your face? I take that over silent behind the scenes while I yabber on about some awful movie.

      • Wendy says:

        So charity is only good if everyone is made aware of it? That’s pretty sad…

      • Josephina says:

        We Angie fans will articulate it another way:

        A mother of six who is an Oscar, GG and SAG winner, CFR member and UNHCR goodwill ambassador should be compared to someone ON HER LEVEL.


        Not in the looks
        Not in glamour
        Not in career
        Not in accomplishments
        Not in lifestyle
        NOt in love life
        Not in family
        Not in world issues
        Not in social awareness
        NOt in activism
        Not in philanthropy

        Maybe one day Aniston can find a man that really loves her enough to commit to her and build a life with her. So far, NO TAKERS YET.

        I no longer believe Justin is the one. She has had several boyfriends in 7 years but only Brad is really referenced as the “biggest misconception?” That was her chance to take crap and turn it another direction like ” People don’t realize just how special Justin is to me” or something like that. No one thinks Brad loved Jen enough to stay married. No one!!!

        I think Jen STILL needs time to heal. Blogs like this prove my point.
        Jen fans STILL cannot celebrate her new love with Justin because they have not gotten over the way Aniston was pushed to the side so that Brad could get to this true love and start the family he so deserved and desired FOR YEARS.

    • yep says:

      its nice the brangelina donate their time and money but that doesnt mean every other celebrity is obligated to and makes them shitty if they dont…

      • Josephina says:

        They do more than donate time and money. They have helped shape international policy, they have started foundations, created jobs, lobbied, written journals, fund hosipitals.

        Please do not water down what they do because you would could never commit on that level to people that are not your own family.

        When human beings can extend themselves to that degree, it really does put them on another level. Anyone here could do the same if their heart was big enough.

      • patw says:

        It’s this kind of hyperbole that really gets annoying.Your rhetoric makes it sound like they solve world hunger and heal the sick. They DON’T. They aren’t policy makers, nor are they poverty fighters. They just happen to make a lot of dough, and have their charitable activities well documented. That’s ALL. I think they are good citizens, but NOT saints. You need to come back down to earth.

      • Josephina says:

        @ PATW

        I am specifically referencing specific events and activities that they have already accomplished and because you do not know any facts, you start slandering, exaggerating that none of their accomplishments are true and that we are worshipping.

        Stop being so damn lazy and uninformed. Do catch up with the details of their work so that you could understand. They are admired for actual work completed over the years. Look it up and stop whining!

      • patw says:

        rme. Loon – I don’t deny they do charity work. But your rhetoric about the greatness of this couple is exaggeration and nauseating.

      • Gwen says:


        ‘Helped shape international policy’

        What international policy?

  18. rissa says:

    finally!!! people are realizing how brad and Angie are profitting as well.

    btw kaiser if you keep throwing in the whole “while he was dating Heidi biven” thing might as well throw in “while brad was married to Jen Aniston” when you talk about Jolie.

  19. Nev says:

    love love love her in the Object of My Affection!!!

    the triangle angle will never end…people loved her and Brad together and the split/affair or no affair aspect is toooo juicy.

  20. yep says:

    argh. jen, brad, angelina, sick of all of them. ones just douchier than the next. they love the attention, if the didnt, they would avoid it. they use the media to promote their projects and then complain when people want to know more… idiots.

    if they really wanted a quiet life, they could do like the other rare celebrities that make it a priority to avoid the media…

  21. Mac says:

    Jennifer always seems so honest and straightforward in her interviews.

    A refreshing change from that of Brad “The Riddler” Pitt.

    • patw says:

      yeah. i agree. I don’t think she’s putting on airs when I read her interviews. She used to be more candid in her older interviews, but I guess she’s learned her lessons.

      • LAK says:

        you must be the only two people on this blog who don’t know that celebrities never do written interviews. They are all written by their publicists.

        That is why there is always such a disconnect between the ‘live’ interviews on TV or radio vs the print interviews

        Every celebrity print interview ‘reads’ how ever their publicist wants them to ‘read’.

  22. Jayna says:

    Two things I noticed. She just called him my ex-husband, never mentioned his name. That’s a tactic to say he’s not important to her anymore.

    Another. She said people think she is influenced by Justin’s dressing. I find that interesting since she says she never reads gossip about her on the internet, etc. How would she know that? The only place that has talked about she is dressing like him is from internet chatter on gossip blogs. LOL She reads about herself. She outed herself.

  23. Ha! says:

      No wendy, but talking non stip about your vanity is a bore compared to people who actaully DO things.

      • Wendy says:

        As opposed to constantly talking about your children and making allusions to your sex life for the press?

        Again, Aniston does charity and has done so for a very long time. The fact that she’s not constantly talking it up and making sure everyone knows about what a wonderful person she is because of it doesn’t make it any less valuable for the people she helps.

      • JudyJudyJudy says:

        again, i am talking about what I find interesting – jen a’s vanity is boring to me. I dont care about her obsessions with lasers compared with building house in New orleans that the Jolie Pitt’s do – and they show their kids how to be valuable. if you prefer the empty vanity then HURRAH! jen a’s PR is fine for you! Get it now?

  26. Julie says:

    She’s gorgeous in these photos.

  27. lucy2 says:

    They all benefit from it to an extent, but I do think the tabloids are the ones who profit the most and keep it going. It’s tiresome.

    Some of those other photos don’t really look like her, but the last one is very pretty. And I oddly really like that gold dress.
    Paul Rudd is in this new movie, right? I love him.

  28. vaylont says:

    Brad’s doing the same thing too so I guess it’s cool. Angelina has never mentioned her by name I think? If I’m not mistaken kudos to her.

  29. blonde on the dock says:

    I find her more attractive than Jolie. Love the last pic. She looks gorgeous!

  30. dede says:

    Notice how Jolie has only ever uttered Aniston’s name or talked about the triange ONCE and that was dec 2006..

    • yep says:

      ya, i wouldnt talk about it either if i was the other woman. the more you talk about it the more attention you draw to the fact you boned a married man, or at the very least facilitated a divorce.

      she wouldnt look too saintly if she did that. she cares a lot about how theyre perceived. angelina and brad control every thing that is released into the media about themselves. (im not talking gossip rags.)

      anyway, jen falls in the same boat. she doesnt need to comment if she doesnt want to but shes feeding the info she wants to be out there.

    • Lol says:

      Exactly yet she’s the one that gets blamed the most for “keeping the triangle alive” or benefiting the most from it. Lol

  31. Lucky Charm says:

    Funny that the “sexiest woman of all time” didn’t even make the list of 99 hottest women… Which goes to show that she did buy that award (for her own ego).

    • yep says:

      a lot of the women ‘buy’ those titles in the mens magazines for advertisement. to be clear its not the women themselves buying these titles but the companies promoting the projects theyre currently working on. duh.

      not to defend jen but just for your general knowledge.

    No wendy, but talking non stop about your vanity is a bore compared to people who actually DO things.

  33. Bobbie says:

    You are way too hard on this girl. She can’t win- she was probably asked directly about this. I love this website, but you do need just an ounce of fairness here. Whatever Jen is guilty of regarding publicity, so is the Angie/Brad couple.

    • JudyJudyJudy says:

      yes, but they are always linked to each other and we all have different tastes about the type of pr we like to read. I dont think I have ever heard Jolie say she is obsessed with any kind of cosmetic treatment blah blah blah. In comparison, Jolie comes out looking less self-absorbed than JA and since I don’t know either of them, I rely on what they are quoted as saying and doing. I prefer the Jolie- Pitt’s to JAs. That about covers it.

    • LAK says:

      @ bobbie – do you know how a celebrity interview is conducted? there are rules, and the celebrity gets to veto topics of conversation.

      So if any of them didn’t want to talk about it, it would be vetoed. No reporter, wanting future access or indeed access to publicist’s other clients would dare to break that embargo unless they had nothing to lose.

      The best example of topic embargo is Tom Cruise/penelope Cruz vs Nicole Kidman.

      It doesn’t matter whether there were CO$ considerations [ btw CO$ is vetoed from TC interviews], none of them will talk about how TC met PC whilst still married to NK, left NK and took up with PC. All whilst still technically married to NK. Result, no one even recalls that particular triangle or let it turn into a triangle.

      EDIT: this doesn’t contradict my earlier statement that all print interviews are written by the publicist. all this information is approved and out there by their publicists.

  34. naturegirl says:

  37. Ogechi says:

    Team Aniston till I drop! Her interview is classy & sweet. Brad NEVER stop mentioning her name either. But then, Jen Aniston looks better than most early twenties. I’m also glad that she is decent enough not have talked about her sex life with Justin. Cute couple they are though.

  38. Camille (The original) says:

    Some of the photos are nice (especially for her!), others are way too photoshopped and look nothing like her (wtf!) and she should never pose with her head facing forward with her head tilted upwards a bit- all I see is the love child between Iggy Pop and Miss Piggy when she does that. *shudder*

    I’m not going to bother to comment on the interview.

  39. Maya says:

    She is just as uninteresting as Brad Pitt, for goodness sake.
    Only Angelina is interesting. Brad Pitt gives the same insipid interviews, adding supposedly risque stuff, that comes out so rehearsed.
    I wish they’d just shut up, go and make good films or produce films, if they can’t star/act well, and just be on their merry way. There are other interesting actors out there….like Michael Fassbender.

  40. Moi says:

    Well all I have to say is that I would love to talk Dermatology with her. I thoroughly enjoy talking about skin products, lasering, etc. Can you imagine the DL she has on all of that? That’s all I got for the thread, sorry. lol

  41. Maritza says:

    They did a lot of photoshop in those photos, no wrinkles at all and her chin has definitely been reduced. The only way she gets jobs is because the tabloids have kept the people interested in her.

  42. teri says:

    Jen was on such a pity party poor me the victim boo hoo for years, now it’s nothing. I can’t stand her and she’s milked this for all it’s worth even go boohooing it up for Oprah. Nothing classy nor sweet but Chelsie H. sidekick because she’s a fraud and knows it. Her PR reps go and defend other accusations in a days time but finally she feels the need to talk? I say shut it up horse face because it’s back fired.

  43. Lauren says:

    Photoshop Circus. If it was not for Angie, no would would care about Jen, Justin or Brad. Free publicity, courtesy of Angie Inc.

  44. mummy says:

    I like Jen Aniston and think she looks fantastic in these photos. Hate to compare the two … but since you all are doing it here, Jennifer is much more the star than Angie. She also looks younger than Jolie these days and her movies have done better because she is a better actress. Jen looks good but she also has a warm spirit that shows through. Angie looks cold and way too thin. The hotness has been sucked right out of Jolie and Pitt. Jen had Brad when he was hot and now he is not. Oh well, such is life.

  45. mln76 says:

    She’s actually been the only one that could have ended the perception of a feud in half dozen different ways years ago but she’s used them again and again to promote her stupid little rom-coms. Here’s hoping this relationship lasts and with the loss of the sad and lonely moniker the tabloid magazine buying public looses interest just like all the studios and movie audiences have.

    • Shay Kay says:

      Hey Min!
      Don’t always agree with you but love to hear from you and I was starting to wonder where you were.
      Jen’s success in rom-coms don’t really depend on the JP’s nor do their movie successes depend on her. Meg Ryan made rom-coms for years and people went to see them because they liked her and it’s the same for JA.

      • mln76 says:

        @Shay Kay hey it’s been a hectic week nice to hear from you too!!!
        Now here is my differing opinion :)

        I think the rom-com genre is currently dead in the water in general and no matter that Jen is saying she’s ‘taking a break’ from movies I think more accurate is that after her horrible year in 2010 no studio is willing to put her in another lead role. This year she did better but with help from Adam Sandler and by changing it up in Horrible Bosses. She needs this new movie to do well in order to rebrand herself as a raunchy comedy actress who can do more(and since she is the biggest star in the film). Right now Hollywood is in recession too and the studios aren’t going to pay good money for middling films starring aging tabloid queens with little range especially with talent like Kristin Wiig waiting in the wings.

      • Wendy says:

        Recession = feel good movies that don’t cost a fortune to make. Exactly the sort of thing Aniston does. The studios are a lot more likely to spend $30 million on a happy film than $100 million on an action film where shooting people tends to be the focus. Easier to finance at $30 million, less money at risk.

  46. rissa says:

    158 comments so far for this “boring” actress haha

  47. Jenn says:

    Once again the poor girl is asked a very pointed question in an interview and she answered honestly, and yet people are going to jump on “I hate Jennifer Aniston Bandwagon.” It’s her life, Brad was part of it, her divorce is part of it, she has the right to answer any way she chooses. She didn’t say anything terrible other than the tabloids are making money by keeping this non existent love triangle going. There is no feud and if the tabloids would cease with all these ridiculous stories, neither Brad nor Jenn would need to comment. Leave them alone and stop criticizing people you don’t even know.

  48. Lola Aniston says:

    Angelina, you can come out now. We know you are writing some of these comments.

  49. Scout says:

    Most overrated chick – EVER!!!!!!!! Pretty to a point – vapid – boring – passable at times actress. If there was NO Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, I would feel the exact same about this one!

  50. Lola says:

    In reality, it’s Brad and AJ… the public’s households it will ALWAYS be Jen and Brad. And the public always rules.

  51. me says:

    The reason why people like Jen is because her image was built on her character from friends-the pretty blonde nice girl. People dislike Ange because she promoted herself as a slutty man-eater. And guess what. She stole billybob from laura dern and then stole brad from jen. Angephiles like to forget that she was preggo before he was even divorced so yes, he did cheat. If Brad was in such a lousy place in his life when he met ange, why did she think he was such a catch? I don’t buy the poor me story he’s trying to sell. I think he has selective memory about his time with Jen because it better suits his current situation.

    • Rena says:

      So me, Angie rolled Brad up in a rug and throw him in the back of a truck and rolled away with him, “stole him” you say? LOL What trite lying drival are you trying to sell? Are you a silly silly infant?

      Truth is Laura Dern broke up BBT’s 4th marriage. Truth is BBT and Laura Dern broke up because he would not marry her before he got together with Angelina and married her. Truth is Laura Dern broke up Ben Harper’s marriage and gave birth to her oldest child within a month of Ben Harper’s then wife giving birth.

      Angelina never promoted herself as some type of slutty man-eater, she was too busy working and then being a Mom, and helping others with the UN. Ask Uma Thurman who debunked a complete lie told about Angelina but you would rather believe tabloid lies and refuse to accept the truth. Truth is people like you make that assumption because it makes you feel better about believing in the fake who is Jen Aniston. A woman who is all about her physical appearance, a woman who is 43 in a few days and thinks she is like a 20 something, a woman who has hidden all the authentic things about herself under a layer of a fake forever young LA girl. A woman who associates with no other women of substance but with the likes of Chelsea Handler. CCox is never with Aniston any more, don’t you wonder why? Cox is a grown up woman who has a child and a business and a real life and she does not have time to drink and party her time away.

      Truth is Brad did not love Aniston like he loved Paltrow. Truth is Brad loves Angelina more than he ever loved Paltrow or Aniston. Truth is Brad woke up and took charge of his life and grew up. Truth is Brad has been with Angelina longer than he was with Aniston. Truth is Brad and Angelina and Aniston are leading exactly the lives they want to.

      And if I were you I would be facing the truth that Aniston needs some major luck to overcome the age 40 and over and out stigma that most women face in celeb land, especially those who have been regulated to rom coms. Notice that Adam Sandler is casting younger and younger women in his flims and is now branching out to Hasbro films for career longevity.

      Why would you want Aniston with Brad, given how he chased Angie halfway around the world to convince her to be in a relatiosnhip with him?

      Pretty blonde nice girl? Uh… she’s a natural brunette. You’re just as smart as she is.

      Stole Billy Bob from Laura Dern? You are confused. BB broke up with Laura, and just like jen, she wasn’t over him yet and kept trying to get him back. Funny thing- he MARRIED Jolie but would not marry Dern when she pressed him to marry her. Also, Laura began dating Billy Bob while he was still married to his then wife. Wanna talk about a serial ho? Braindead Laura, rejected from Billy Bob, GOT pregnant at the same time her next boyfriend’s wife (that’s right I said wife, not ex-wife) was pregnant. …So who’s the slut?

      Wait, we’re not done. Months after filing for divorce, picture were shown of Aniston dry humping Pitt’s co-star of MAMS, Vince Vaughn, on a balcony. And this was before the divorce was final and before her infamous Vanity Fair August 2005 Boo-hoo article.

      Again, nobody wanted Aniston. Everybody wanted Pitt, and Pitt chose Angie. Pitt chose Angie and you guys still can’t handle the truth. Look at the results, Pitt had a promise of a lifetime with Aniston and he threw that fish back into the ocean.

      And you guys STILL are talking about some man who does not want your idol. You’re like crack addicts lookin’ for the next fix. The reality is there is a LONG LINE Of men who hit it and then quit it:

      Brad Pitt
      Paul Sculfor
      Vince Vaughn
      John Mayer
      Gerard Butler
      The Grip Boy
      Sport Fvck Guy

      Batter up! Squiggy (Justin) is now at the plate. Here’s the ptich. He swings…(stay tuned.)

        wow..she dated seven guys..big ole whore. *eye roll* s##t my girl friends slept with more guys before first marriages..and I will not commit to any number but you got to try on the shoes before you whip out the visa and I love shoes..

      • Alita says:

        Hi Josephina,

        Can you please stop being mean about commenters please? I like reading the comments on CB threads but seeing commenters directly slighted, rather than just their points of view about celebrities, makes it all a bit unpleasant. I’d really appreciate it, thanks.

      • Josephina says:

        I do not think Angie is a saint; she owns up to her unsavory past, which is what I like about her. She is very hardworking and having a family means everything to her. She is only 36, yet, she is a very accomplished woman.

        Aniston’s flaws get in her way and of her FILM career.

        Once again Jen has stated there was no triangle but the Jenhens still think there was an affair. The affair IS the triangle and vice versa. Jen said it didn’t happen. Now do you beleive her?

        You’re OK with Chelsea Handler’s behavior, Jen’s passive-aggressive behavior, anyone who wants to sh*t on Angie. I share a few unmitigated facts and you retreat to your Boo-Hoo Sisterhood. Pathetic.

        None of the information I share is from tabloids. I don’t read them, and so I am not aware of what they say.

        Every time Jen does an interview, she reveals the same or more flaws in her character. Maybe some of you have the same characte flaws which is why you cannot see what everyone else is seeing. It would take a special person to stay with Jen and live alongside her needy ways and Brad WAS NOT THE ONE.

        You should have noticed that even in this interview, when asked what she looks for in a man/relationship, that she really didn’t answer the question. She talked about what didn’t work and not about what does work… light bulb, folks!!!

        I will repeat, BRAD wanted to leave. Jen wanted him to stay. He left.

        Brad’s interviews have rocked the Jen Hens to the core. Exactly how long should Brad pandle or coddle Jenhens’ hurt feelings? It’s been 7 years…You would have loved it if Brad stated that it was a mistake to leave Jen because that’s what you are still waiting to hear. The TRUTH is he was elated to get out.

        Jenhens don’t want to accept that the marriage failed, they’d rather keep beleiving that Brad was “stolen.” Again, another glaring sign of immaturity.

        Sidenote: Imagine how Laura Dern’s child will always feel when someone questions the 3-month age difference between the siblings having two different mothers. SMH. Bravo, Laura Dern, Bravo.

    • Shay Kay says:

      @me,@pop rocks, and @originalone

      Ditto to what you guys said.
      Personally I think her,”I’ve gotten older and found out what qualities are important in love, what suits me, and what I won’t settle for” was her tasteful reply to Brad’s tacky, “My life was boring…I was boring…it had something to do with my marriage.”

      I also think Jen was straight forward with her “there’s no feud” answer far more so than Pitt with his “she’s a dear friend” answer. On what planet do any of you believe that Brad and Jen are dear friends?

  52. Barbara says:

    These pictures don’t even look like her anymore! The Photoshopping is excessive. The day that Jen Aniston accepts herself as is, will be the day that I will believe she finally has acquired some self esteem.

  53. xploxite says:

    She looks beautiful so young looking, love the hairdo. She looks gorgeous in the last photo she should keep that look.

    when something looks beautiful on you, it’s never Boring.

    • Rena says:

      See THIS is one of the main problems she now has, all the posts extolling how YOUNG she looks. Not that she is actually YOUNG but how YOUNG she LOOKS. That is not what is good for her career or for her ego, but is the illusion/mirage that her fans want to see in their favorite Friend.

      Problem is she is 43, MIDDLE AGED, and her contemporaries own up to it while she is still spinning that she is YOUNG like she has always been. This is why she continues to wear ultra short dresses, shorter than those worn by teenagers, and add back the very extensions that turned her hair to straw as she told In Style a month or so ago. Her short hairstyle that actually benefitted her and softened her features has been rejected so that the Friends devotees could see the illusion that they desire, RGreen forever.

      I hope for her sake and well being that this Justin guy is “IT” for her, that he proves to be a catalyst for her to accept that ageing is positive, to find roles where she might play the mother of a 17 year old with realism, not attempt to be the object of desire of a 17 year older. There is beauty at every age you know. And maybe he can help her to see that what’s past is past and accept what is the now.

      If not well another Demi or Heather situation might arise in her future.

  54. Norah says:

    Hope Jen finally finds closure and moves on with her life. In All her interviews in the past 7 years, even her ‘no comments’ have been laden with subtext and ‘off the record’ talk. She carried that baggage around for the longest time, and felt betrayed and hurt and couldn’t move on with her life. After 7 years – the length of her relationship – she still won’t refer to Angie by name. She’s definitely not forgiven her… and that’s her prerogative. but I guess she’s forgiven brad, which is strange because if you were to feel betrayed – shouldn’t it be by your husband and closest person – not a woman you barely know but suspect of ‘stealing’ someone who made a promise to you. never understood why women forgive their husband – real cheaters or otherwise – faster than some third person who really doesn’t know them or owe them anything.

    • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

      I’ve always had trouble understanding that part of the story. I don’t get why, when it comes to BP and the demise of their marriage, she speaks kindly about their former love, and respect she has for him even to this day. Yet when it comes to AJ she makes it clear she doesn’t like AJ, and looks down on her.

      In the context of her purported great respect for Brad, her dislike of AJ just doesn’t jive. Personally, were I in Jen’s shoes, and was the type to hold a grudge (and I am), my grudge would be directed at BP, and I would dismiss AJ altogether.

      JA had given her heart to Brad; it was BPs’ choice to not work on the marriage, his choice to follow AJ to Africa, his choice to petition to adopt Mad and Zahara, and finally their choice to be together. Should AJ have said no, maybe, but I doubt BP would have gone back to JA with his tail between his legs.

      JA hates to be portrayed as the victim in the situation, so why allow her PR team/friends to portray her as the victim? She didn’t, that was the press, and none of her friends have said a bad word about BP, not even to this day.

      The ones who have benefitted from this “triangle” have been Brad and Jen. They’re the ones who talk about each other; they’re the ones who do the complaining.

      AJ gets to wear the scarlet letter, and be labeled a home-wrecker. AJ’s profile was raised quite a bit through her association with BP, just like the profiles of most women BP has been with. The “triangle” has only hurt her career-wise. Say what you will about Jolie, good or bad it’s mostly true, but she’d tell you that herself. One thing Jolie will never be is a coward. Brad and Jen are both cowards when it comes to the truth, and this “unholy” mess.

      AJ only speaks about her relationship with Brad, family, and work with the UNHCR, when it comes to her life outside of Hollywood. Yes, she spoke of her feelings about BP during filming MAMS, she was excited to work with him, they shared a bond, they were friends, etc.

      Brad was the one who said he fell in love, he also said they shot MAMS over the course of a year, meaning after his split with Jen, always CYA with BP, and always trying to spare Jens feelings.

      BP and JA are perfect together in one way, and that’s that each of them is far more willing to throw Jolie under the bus, than they are each other.

  55. Catherine says:

    Why in holy hell is that woman on InStyle? She is a bore. Cute, but a bore.

  56. CHRISTIAN_GIRL says:

    Angie is still a BAD GIRL. How exactly did Brad clean up her image? By leaving his wife and by having 6 kids with her while not married to her?

    What in her image has changed? She already was a mom of 1 just added to that. A goodwill ambassdor, international movie star commanding a top salary for MAMS and other films. As for her bad girl image, the best thing about it is she did NOT have to give it up. Brad loves it and Hollywood loves it.

    Hollywood has and will always need that edge. Good girls come and go with relative ease. Jen knows that hence her wannabe change up. Angie’s does what she wants, when she wants. The wannabe’s dip their toe in the water than retreat. Even a made up image has to be presented as REAL forever. That is what the rest lack. They can’t live up to it. Angie can be all over the map and own it. As you call it Saintly, fierce, bad girl, loving partner, doting mom, award winning actor, add writer, director, humanitarian ALL WITH her past publically out there and still succeed. Who else can? Yeah, she is a bad girl and it is in your face and will continue to be so. That’s her realness. For her entire life, she will move forward with her image intact. THE TRIANGLE could not stop her. What was thought to be her undoing surely failed in its attempt. It actually gave her MORE power to play with and shove in your faces. She knows how to turn it inside out. Some call it manipulation, I call it BRILLIANT. Angie is the best at this. She does what she needs to do to move her family forward. Brad hopped on that and is not getting off.

    Lots of upcoming events and projects for MIR too. Oscars is one small piece. They are enjoying their life together, built on their dreams and desires. An Ex-wife did not fit in, so Brad was divorced. That’s how you do it. Get divorced and move on. No one important is holding that against either of them.

    Getting Nominated is no small feat. Can everybody do it? I recall Jen wanted as oscar too, BUT first she has to be nominated. Will it be unimportant then? Of course not, so trying to put Brad and Angie down for multiple noms is NOT sincere. They will have more noms too. Again top 5 performance out of hundreds each year including Jens. Be repectful to all 3 chosen craft. They both have 3 movies nominated out of hundreds including Jens. Be serious.

    Last thing, in order to have a FEUD, someone has to be feuding back. It can’t be a one sided one way fight. So, I bet she is correct that she is not feuding with Brad because BRAD PITT IS GONE to never return to a life he was bored and uninterested in. A FACT from his point of view that WE can’t argue with. It’s how he felt and it’s how he behaved. He nor Angie is feuding with her not now or ever. Yes, it was made up to sell the triangle that NEVER was. It was always 1 couple, than another couple. No 3rd party was strung along.

    • patw says:

      okay a bad girl is someone like Elizabeth Taylor. I’m trying to think of a contemporary, but all I can come up with Lohan.

      There’s a certain naughty quality to them, which I don’t get from Jolie any more. She used to be (and that was entertaining), but she really is no longer that.

  57. Pat says:

    Seems that Jen looking so good and being so happy is bringing out the ugly in some people! Jen is happy, healthy and loving her life, sorry haters.

    I think that some people try to hard to convince us that Brad/Angie are so happy together. Keep trying though.

  58. lyriclark says:

    I must say -they are a great looking couple…he is so very cool -he’s actually made her look hip.I think she’s beautiful but not very bright. But so what, she’s got tons of money and he’s found his $$$. She better get a pre-nup for sure.

  59. Isa says:

    The first two pictures are great. She looks really pretty.
    And he has influenced her style. She may have had that jacket or whatever for 3 years but she’s pulling it out now for a reason, whether she thinks soo or not.
    She did wear the baggy jeans before Justin, which were ugly then too. Shame because she used to wear some of the best damn jeans. I used to like a piece or two and now I can’t find anything on her that I like.
    And her comment about not feeling her age is very telling.

  60. Em says:

    So it looks like Jen has finally tired of the game, she can hardly keep up the ‘wronged woman’ charade anymore after stealing Justin from his live in girlfriend of 14yrs. If this is really how she feels and felt about the feud gossip why wasn’t she saying this 5yrs ago?

  61. Original Chloe says:

    Can anyone remember when these threads got to this level of crazy? Was it with the introduction of the “reply” button? Was it when Theroux dumped Bivens for Aniston and the pot/kettle/black thing started?

    There’s always been poking fun at the “I don’t know what’s the riskiest thing in my life was but what I like most about my bf is his style” Aniston on CB and we were arguing if Pitt and her “were on a break” or not, and if Aniston is mor a B-class actress or an A-class celebrity but in the last few weeks/months this s*it’s just gotten weirder and weirder. I literally get bad high school flashback.

    Runs With Scissors? Eve? Anyone?

    • Eve says:

      Just my opinion, but I think the reply button makes it easier for direct attacks (and trolling).

      However, I still don’t know if that’s the reason why it’s gotten so nasty lately…all I know is that I’ve been avoiding these threads (Jolie/Pitt/Aniston) as much as I can.

    • Shay Kay says:

      Original Chloe, I’m not sure when it happened but I certainly agree that’s it’s reached a new level of nastiness.
      Maybe there’s a sense that Brad is talking about his “amazing life with Angie and his boring life pre-Angie” and Jen is “happy, peaceful and learning what she wants in her man, not feuding with her ex” so there’s a limited amount of time to get in your shots on this one? Just a thought.
      Love hearing from you always Original Chloe!

      Other than that and the reply button I can only guess there’s something in the waters supply and certain posters are drinking plenty of it!

    • mia girl says:

      YES to this! I love this site, and so enjoy reading the many comments and POVs from my fellow posters. We all recognize each other’s names, and I feel real camaraderie, even if we don’t always agree.

      But I have felt the same as you, Eve and Shay Kay – that overall – the tone in many of the threads, but particularly the “triangle” stories – have gone from “bitchy” to downright mean girling type of stuff. Seriously, this is Regina George territory. It is beginning to alienate me a bit, because that was never the tone here. I question some of these people who have clearly moved from fan to almost saint worship – what is it that drives them to fight back with bitterness and viciousness?

      I think that there have been way too many Pitt/Jolie/Anniston posts lately (given the movie releases/award season) as well as what seems like more negative female celebrity posts (Mara, Stewart, Heigel, Beyonce) and that has added to ramping up the vitriol. Read most of the posts about any female celebrity recently (and I am not talking about Lohan or Rimes) and there is a shift in tone. It is getting nasty.

    • patw says:

      I think most of these comments are par the course. What is the nature of the nastiness that caught your eye here?

      I mean there’s poking fun at Aniston, and then there’s attacking her. Maybe the attacking was unchallenged or unchecked before?

    • Original Chloe says:

      Patw, I can’t really put my finger on it. I’ve been reading CB for years now, definitely since before the whole Brangelina/Aniston thing (it’s my favorite form of procrastination). I’ve always appreciated the snark and the wit of the writers here, and the comments, very bitchy but smart, frank, funny, mature, often touching, and very different from what I saw elsewhere. It reminded me a bit of pajiba, another site I often read; there was something special about the community that made me stay.

      I don’t know if you’re new to CB or an old commenter with a new name but there has never been so much irrational name calling, vitriol and obsessiveness here. Reading the comments used to be as much fun as reading the posts. Now each BP/AJ/JA thread is like a Jerry Springer show.

      Personally, I like the “reply” button – it helps to hold the mini-conversations together, it’s the nature of those conversations that has mutated into something weird: I’m talking for example about the contrast between the tone of my first comment in this thread (no 8 ) and the tone of the reply it got. (this is just an example, I don’t mean to vilify the person who responded). You say, patw, “maybe the attacking was unchallenged and unchecked”, as if what was going on now was a positive thing, but the very idea people literally patrolling those threads gives me shudders.


      I started talking about it all because I for some time now I haven’t been seeing the names of posters that I’ve grown to like a lot – it seems they migrated to other threads for the reasons I’m talking about, which is sad, but they are still on CB – which is good, because, honestly, half of Celebitchy’s awesomeness has always been its readers & commenters.


      edit: oh and – raises glass – hello ladies! good to see you:)

      • Runs with Scissors says:

        Hey guys!! Yeah, I avoid these threads mostly now… not too much fun anymore…

        The blind hypocrisy of Aniston fans and the sycophantic adoration and general lack of humor of the Jolie fans gets boring… or maybe it’s the woman-hating tone it takes…

        I’m sick of people insisting, despite tons of evidence to the contrary, that Brad and Angie cheated. People use this as some kind of permission to attack Jolie for every little thing the woman ever does.

        I’m also sick of people insisting, despite tons of evidence to the contrary, that Aniston is desperate and lonely and sad and still pining for Brad. Also, like it or not, she commands a lot of attention in Hollywood and has a large fan base.

        Tiring and boring…

        Hope you ladies are doing great!! We’ll get our humor back eventually :)

      • patw says:

        Original Chloe – I am relatively new here and so can’t comment on the change in tone. When I stated it was par the course, it was really based on what I’ve seen on other blogs (like JJ for instance).

        I read your #8 post and the reply, and I didn’t think it was an attack on you or particularly bad, it was just a differing opinion. Maybe there are more people reading CB who defend Aniston (as an example) than before? Or maybe the tone of the post write-ups themselves kind of invite these kind of comments.

        For me, I comment on her thread because I think there’s a terrible standard being set. The posts want to assign characteristics to Aniston based primarily on tabloid fodder, and discount anything that is actually stated by her or done by her. If it’s a good thing, it’s bought and paid for by her pr team. If it’s negative, it’s of course 100% accurate. It’s pretty lopsided for a celebrity that really hasn’t done anything terrible. I get the occasional ribbing, but shouldn’t the ribbing be based on some modicum of truth.

        I just find the coverage on some women so negative and denigrating, and perpetuates these crazy notions like – ‘oh, she can’t keep a man, therefore there MUST be something wrong with her’, or ‘this guy is gorgeous, why wouldn’t she give him what he wants’ or ‘it’s been 7yrs and no baby, she MUST not want kids’, or ‘how did she land both of them, she must give good head’.

        It’s just all so wrong. So I started commenting – unfortunately can’t defend them all, so I pick a few, and it’s Aniston most of the time.

      • Original Chloe says:

        @patw – you misunderstood me, I didn’t think it was an attack on me (and honestly, if it was, I’d just shrug it off). I was pointing out a difference in tone that can happen in a “dialogue”, I probably could have used a more striking example but you can probably see those yourself. I also think that your attempt to defend a celebrity by engaging in debates with people on the internet, most of whom are either trolling or impervious to reason (zealots don’t *want* to be reasoned with), while noble, will only give you headache:) But I agree, in general, that people are very selective in what they decide to believe in and ignore about their ‘favorite’ celebrities and recently I find a lot of commentaries completely alienating.

      • Original Chloe says:

        Just to clarify again: people think they’re having a dialogue but more often than not it’s two parallel monologues, getting longer and longer, and far less logical and civilized than both sides would like to believe.

    • Kara Ann says:

      Just wanted to chime in on this b/c I have been avoiding posting in the Aniston/Pitt/Jolie threads. I do think the tone is far nastier then it used to be. There is no “agreeing to disagree”. I especially find it appalling when posters attack other posters. What does it add to any logical discussion to call other people names in a very na-nanny-boo-boo type of way?
      Personally when I identify people that do this I usually won’t respond to them at all! Maybe we should all do this as a way of self-regulating what we find acceptable/entertaining? Just a thought.
      Mostly, just wanted to say Original Chloe, you are not the only one that feels this way!

  62. heidiho says:

    I can see why Brad left that barren twit, she is a 3 dressed up as a 9 all the way. Angelina has a beautiful face, she had the babies Brad wanted, and she has a brain too!
    Me thinks its time for Jen to quit referencing her marriage which ended a long long time ago…..:)

  63. Marianne says:

    I have a soft spot for Jennifer (because of Friends) but she has made a bunch of craptastic movies, and honestly she isn’t as interesting as Brangelina. I still would rather see her on magazines anyday than the likes of the Kim K’s of the world.

    Plus,I wish she would change up her style once in awhile. Tired of seeing the long pin straight hair in the same colour. Tired of black dresses.

    • patw says:

      Yeah i concede this point. But Brange are 2+6 people to discuss. Versus Aniston, where there is one, and maybe two when she’s in a relationship.
      There’s only so many things she can talk about/ or is willing to talk about.

      • JudyJudyJudy says:

        has nothing to do with how many of them there are – it is what can be taled about with them. Jen A is interesting anymore as some kind of fashion/beauty role model, she makes terrible movies and doesnt seem to do anything else. maybe she isnt interested in talking about charity or service, but then she is less interesting than a beautiful woman or man who can make decent movies, raise a family of very cute kids and also make impressive attempts (and successes) at giving back.

      • patw says:

        I don’t see why she should be obliged to talk about anything beyond the product she’s selling. I know that’s not how the business works, but that’s really at the end of the day what she is obligated to talk about. I think Brad/AJ are much more comfortable talking about their home life to the media than Aniston is. And so it opens up other avenues of conversation. And I disagree, it’s definitely a numbers game, and definitely what you are willing to talk about.

  64. ann says:

    “Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down what you actually do want. As I get older, I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won’t settle for.” There she goes again. Brad would get crucified if he made the same statement but she’ll get a pass. As for the photos, they do look lovely but she looks about 20 and her chin is smaller.
    Must be a cold hard shock for her to look at these photos and then look in the mirror. Mirror cracks…

    • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

      In the second pic she looks like they morphed her face with her BFF Courtney Cox. At least that’s what it looks like to me. Magazines need to stop using so much Photoshop. They aren’t doing celebs any favors when even their fans are crying foul. Only the last pic looks like her and that’s the one most people have said is their favorite. I agree that if those words came from BP he would have been crucified.

  65. JudyJudyJudy says:

    “patw I don’t see why she should be obliged to talk about anything beyond the product she’s selling”.”

    Um, dude. SHE is the product she is selling.

  66. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    These threads used to be fun because we kept the attacks on the three involved themselves, no matter what side you were one.

    I for one turned Team Jolie last year. I have never liked Jen because I saw through her act the minute she did what she did to Tate Donovan and contradicted herself by claiming she loved the way she looked, then dropped twenty unnecessary pounds and went platinum right around the time she started dating Brad. I disliked her even more for the obvious manipulation she and her PR pulled when Brangie got together and she tried to make it look like they were creepin behind her back. I thought that was really low.

    Before Angie she and Brad made some really weird comments about marriage, fidelity, and what not that let me know these two people were not happy with one another. Obviously he was attracted to Angie.

    I have read about these three faithfully over the past seven years and whomever claims that Brad and Angie were always talking about Jen are completely misinformed. They hardly ever said anything about her. I think Jolie talked about her in the April issue of Vogue in 2006. I have to check. I have twenty years worth of back issues of Vogue. But I’m sure this was when she said she would sit down and talk with her if that’s what Jen wanted.

    Yes, they all benefited from this “war” whether it was intentional or not. Brad and Angie talk their children up and their family in a genuine way, but they’re “openness” gets them brownie points with people like me, who, like Josephine said, their PR better than Jen’s who does nothing relevant. She is hyped, overrated, and a hypocrite. And I just want her fans to admit this. Just the way I can admit that Brad campaigns for the Oscar in his own way, that they know what and when to talk about shit, and that they are awesome but not the answer to world peace. Just be honest.

    • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

      I have turned Team Jolie as well, not Brangie, Jolie. I made a post at #58, detailing why I feel this way.

      Basically Angie is the one who never changed in reference to the “triangle” business. She hasn’t changed in general since she adopted Maddox, and that was long before she met Brad. She’s never apologized for her life, or her choices. Yes, she’s spoken about her life with Brad, but so has Jen. Why is the right to talk about Brad reserved only for Jen? It isn’t.

      I feel that JA, and BP have definitely benefited from the “triangle”, while Jolie has been cast as slut, whore, homewrecker, etc. And, she’s never even attempted to defend herself.

      How has this “feud” lasted? Brad and Jen. They complain, they talk about each other, they whine, they apologize. Jen makes passive aggressive remarks about Jolie, and Brad apologizes non-stop for Jen. It would end if they would both stop talking, but they don’t.

      P.S. In the 2006 Vogue interview AJ said a few interesting things:
      Re: MAMS from a previous interview with the same writer for Vogue done 2.5 years earlier.
      “It’s a study in marriage and how well you know your partner. There’s everything from couples therapy to arguing about the drapes, and you think they’re having affairs, and then you slowly discover that the reason they’re having problems is because they have very different lives and have secrets from each other.” And then she said this: “My opinion of marriage comes from a very cynical place. Do you want to kill your spouse? For me, that’s a serious question. And Brad Pitt comes from a place of: What a funny idea, to kill the person you’re married to, because he has a happy marriage. So we’re actually a very funny combination.”
      Re: Brad
      “I didn’t know much about exactly where Brad was in his personal life. But it was clear he was with his best friend, someone he loves and respects.”
      Re: whether or not she’d ever met Jen.
      “But . . . so . . . you asked if I have ever met Jennifer and I said no. I did, but it was not a proper meeting. We’ve, like, passed each other and said hi briefly, shook hands. But not a real sit-down-and-talk kind of meeting.”

      Do you imagine that happening at some point?

      “That would be her decision, and I would welcome it.”

        I just don’t think it was her place to talk about it, especially with how it ended, what kind of circus it created, and her role in it.

        Sorry – and it’s kind of passive-aggressive to say ‘sure I’ll sit down with her’ in the context of what was going on in the media.

        Also – Brad broke the gates on the divorce talk first. It’s the GQ June 2005 interview. It came out about the same time he was with Jolie.

      • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

        I respect your opinion that AJ shouldn’t talk about her relationship with Brad, although I don’t agree. And I do see how her comment about meeting JA could be taken as condescending. It’s all about perspective, and people rarely share the same perspective.

        You are also correct that Brad did the GQ interview first, interviewed early April, and published in June. For VF Jen was interviewed over a few weeks from June to July, and published in Sept.

        If you choose to believe the 2005 rumor mill, then Brad was with Angie starting in May, and Jennifer was with Vince Vahn starting in June. People are free to pick and choose what they believe, but there’s always three sides to every story. Her side, his side, and the truth.

        Additionally in this case, there’s the tabloid fervor to deal with. I’d rather read an interview with any one of them than a tabloid story about them, since the tabs are driven by lies and gossip.

        Maybe 2006 was too soon, but Angie has never been one to hold her tongue. Angie didn’t hurt Jen, Brad did. Only a person you care about can hurt you emotionally. If truth hurts you you should use it to make you stronger, and for the record, that’s exactly what I think Jen did.

        The role AJ played in their divorce is debatable based upon what an individual wants to believe. If one wants to believe they had an affair, then they did, if one wants to believe they waited, then they did, if one wants to paint Brad as the prize that two women fought over and one lost to the other, then that’s what they’ll see.

        All opinions regarding these three are subjective to which one, or ones, they relate to, because no one posting on an internet blog actually knows any of them.

        I personally don’t think people should stay together if either doesn’t want the relationship. But that’s me, I walk away and never look back, I’ve never left someone whom I didn’t still love, and I’ve never left someone to hurt them. I left because I didn’t want to be with that person anymore, and that’s my right.

        It was Brad’s right to leave Jen, even if she didn’t want him to, and no matter why. I don’t believe he left in order to hurt her, but why should he care more for her feelings than his own?

        No one is the “saint” in any story. However, it did start with the Golden Couple, and that was Brad and Jen. This is the baggage of one of Hollywoods so-called Golden Couple that they all carry, whether they like it or not.

        But, Brad and Jen are the true focus, they are the ones who talk about, or allude to each other. They are the ones justifying themselves, Jen is getting her feelings hurt, and Brad is still apologizing, they are both still whining.

        After years of bending over backward to say how wonderful Jen is Brad has only recently stuck up for Angie, and people still cried foul.

        Angie is the one expected to forever twist in the wind, and not say a word. But it’s cool, she doesn’t need anyone to save her, and she’ll do what she wants, without fear, as usual.

        For me, seeing photos of AJ, Pitt and M on the beach in Kenya in April 2005 – one month after JA filed for divorce – and drawing my own conclusions-is not believing the rumor mill it’s seeing a family vacation. 

        I admire AJ ‘s humanitarian work and her independent spirit. She is not the sum of her poor choices. And has made her share of poor choices like the rest of us. To live your life without regrets is an admirable aspiration. What kind of person has that luxury?

        My impression has always been that Angie got her act together in her personal life -children change you. She’s said as much.  Brad’s marriage was failing and he was unhappy, they wanted to be together. He’s said as much.  They are together now – and seem to live a life that values family.  Perhaps it’s a romance for the ages, or Harlequins – um -ewwww.

        I put myself in JA’s shoes and feel sad that she had to see it.  I put myself in AJ’s shoes and I never leave the house because I ‘ve got a gaggle of kids and I’m married to Brad Pitt!  And my right leg is cold?    
        I’m sure they both try not to let it define their relationships.

        C’mon they all have talked about each other and they ALL care what people think – at least to the extent they have to – unless they change jobs.  But then we’d miss out on making assumptions about their  personal lives and their moral fiber. And it’s so fun!

        I’m not on anyone’s side here. I’m not shocked at the vitriol cuz it’s the internet. No accountability.  And I agree the “conversations” are an exercise in self-flagellation.  The web together with this subject seems to bring it.   I think it’s our passion about what’s right and what’s feminine.  Which is all in your perspective…

      wait – if by ‘when did this site become so vicious’ mean when did commenters start not siding with the opinion that ‘Jen is a hypocrite and not relevant, and Brad/Angie are saints’, then the only thing that changed was there are more fans from the other side posting on this site.

      I don’t disagree there is bad behaviour and loons on both sides, but on this site, loons/viciousness make up a larger proportion of comments on the Jen threads than on the Brad/AJ threads.

      It’s accepted here to bash Jen (from what gets posted by Kaiser to the comments that follow), but there may have been a recent change in the commenters who don’t think that’s okay and so comment back. And that’s how it escalates. At least that’s my humble theory.

      You wish Jen fans to call her a hypocrite because at least Brad/Aj fans acknowledge that Brad Pitt campaigns for oscars (but in his own way, so it’s not a bad thing), and they do talk about their personal lives a bit much (but it’s genuine and hear felt so that’s not bad either). The same can be said for the other side, where fans of Aniston acknowledge she has frailties but hey that’s human, and wish Brad/AJ fans would acknowledge that the brange are not saints and play the game for their own benefit (versus in the service of doing good in the world) just as much.

      • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

        There are people on CB who bash all three of these celebs, I was a long-time lurker before I ever started posting.

        What I like about CB was just what others have said, the discussions in the comments section were usually just as funny, interesting, and intelligent as the OP.

        This is a blog and therefore the bloggers do have their own opinions, but commentators have always had their own take on the articles.

        There were always the completely polarized zealots who bashed the celebs in a very rude way, but honestly most other commentators just ignored, and wouldn’t engage them. You can’t fight crazy is what I’ve always known. If someone didn’t agree with another posters opinion, it rarely reached the level of condescending, passive-aggressive, or outright rude statements, as it has lately.

        I noticed some of your posts and I could tell you were trying to be fair and balanced, while stating your opinion. There were, however a couple of posters who weren’t interested in being fair and made vigorous attempts to derail what you said and use only what suited them to prove their point.

        Honestly, if I see someone being extremely polarized I wont engage them. I have no problem agreeing to disagree while still being respectful to the other poster.

        I still love CB, and I do also miss some posters that I never really knew, but enjoyed reading, who don’t post much anymore. How about we both stay around and continue to be fair, and respectful and maybe the others will come back? :D

        ^^ THAT. You think you’re having a dialogue but you’re only presenting your respective views repeatedly, with more and more zeal.

        Original Chloe-”You think you’re having a dialogue but you’re only presenting your respective views repeatedly, with more and more zeal.”

        ^^Exactly. I think if someone comes back more than a couple times and keeps beating the “you must conform” dead horse, it’s time to dis-engage. Once you do, it stops immediately.

        It’s great to share opinions and information online, but it’s not worth it to argue with anyone, there is no “winning”.

    When will this trashy boyfriend-stealing, cheating hypocrite accept the fact that she’s a no-talent hack and just go away, already?

  68. CarmelCamelia says:

    Ann #68 Exactly. Thats why the Aniston fans are such hypocrites because this extremely passive-aggressive comment if coming from Brad, would cause an uproar. Yet Aniston can get away with her BrandAniston manipulations and her passive-aggressive digs at Brad and Angelina and ride on their coat tails for publicity. Aniston fans do not apply the same rules to her as they apply to Brad/Angelina.

    I like your posts. I scrolled down because other posts were so long and then i saw yours about posters,tabloid and CB.
    I agree with you 100%.

    @wendy and @ patw

    i dont know how far back you need to go on CB to find nice posts – i was introdced to this site back in Septmeber for a thread on someone I admire and the posts about her were really really nasty. i didn’t see one that was even remotely nice or fair. Most of the posts on CB are really insulting to whomever is the topic and no one says anything.

  72. Lucky Charm says:

    Ok, let’s explain this once more. Angie did NOT say that she and Brad fell in love on the set of MAMS. She was talking about their characters, John & Jane Smith, falling in love with each and then trying to kill each other. She was explaining how strange it would be to the kids if they saw that movie, because to them it’s not just two actors, but their mom & dad.

    Brad told the truth : he was bored
