Brangelina “always knew they’d be together forever, right from the start”

Perhaps I was too harsh to the poor Twihards in my previous post. I get all Twihard-y about Brangelina, and if some major cheating scandal came to light about Brad or Angelina, I would be in full meltdown mode too. It helps to put yourself in their shoes. For a wise man said, “He who walks in a Twihard’s Chuck Taylors will know the true meaning of life.” So, what’s up with Brangelina lately? Obviously, Brad is having some professional struggles right now as World War Z looks like an epic disaster on the scale of Waterworld or Battlefield Earth. Angelina is working on Maleficent, and she and the kids will probably be hunkered down in the UK for the next three or four months. But is there any problem with Brad and Angelina’s personal life together? Not so much. At least, according to the dude who made Angelina’s engagement ring:

Looking for proof that Brangelina are the real deal? Just ask their longtime friend Robert Procop — the jeweler responsible for designing Angelina Jolie’s engagement ring from Brad Pitt.

“Brad and Angelina are a very romantic couple,” Procop, who met Jolie after dressing her for the Oscars years ago, told Us Weekly at a fete celebrating his Robert Procop Exceptional Jewels pop-up at the Grand in the South of France. (Procop is currently collaborating with Jolie on a jewelry collection, Style of Jolie, whose proceeds will go to Jolie’s foundation, Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.) “They always knew they’d be together forever and get married one day, right from the start,” he adds.

As Jolie and Pitt — who met on the 2004 set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith — have matured, so has their relationship, says Procop.

“The relationship may have been all flying planes and riding motorcycles at the start, but any new relationship is exciting that way,” he says. “Now though, they’ve settled into this wonderfully strong family unit and it’s beautiful how in love they are.”
Adds the designer, “They’re both lovely, very talented people that compliment each other . . . when you’re with them, you can see how strongly in love they are.”

Over the years, Procop says both Jolie, 37, and Pitt, 48, have sought his help custom-making gifts for one another.

“Angelina came to me six years ago to create a pendant for Brad as a present,” he reveals. “She’s very clever and had this idea that it would be like an ancient tablet, and she researched it looking at old Chinese and Egyptian scripts . . . [it] has a love letter from him to her inscribed on it.”

So naturally, when it came time to pop the question to the mother of his six children, Pitt turned to Procop for help designing a ring for his bride-to-be. (The final result is a piece of jewelry boasting an estimated 16-carat, emerald-cut diamond and worth approximately $500,000.)

As for their wedding bands?

“Over the years, I have been entrusted with some wonderful secrets,” Procop teases. “I’d never share something that should be between two people and that is very romantic and special and something for them.”

Eh. I mean, this was very sweet and this is how I’d like to think of them too, but I think there’s some revisionist history in there: “They always knew they’d be together forever and get married one day, right from the start.” Really? I think it was sexual attraction, fascination, followed by trying to make a relationship happen very quickly, followed by genuine love and building a family. But it’s nice to think they’re so solid. Angelina needed someone to take over the “wild child” role in the tabloids – and I guess Kristen Stewart is what we’ve got.

    The only excuses for this story are: slow gossip week, and some shit is going to go down with either Brad or Ang. Soon.

  2. autumndaze says:

    Whatever. They are a famous and wealthy couple who are making the world a better place via their philanthropy. I will continue to support their projects.

    Rock on, Brange.

  3. VanillaFrosting says:

    My god, they are beautiful.

    I love reading stuff like this. Stories are always about relationships falling apart and it is depressing. I just hope it is all true that they are so happy an in love.

  4. Flounder says:

    Can’t stand them! So boring!

  5. Rachel says:

    Just a bit of romanticism, definitely not rooted in reality. I mean, it’s the same as “love at first sight” — dude, that’s not love, it’s your hormones. You can’t possibly know that you’ll be together forever with someone you barely know. People have lots of depth that is not instantly knowable, and may not always be compatible with your personality. But hey, the sex drive can be a powerful thing! And if it turns out that you ARE compatible with the person who gave you that ‘instant forever’ feeling, then you can walk around in a romantic haze and tell that story to your kids and your grandkids about how it was love at first sight. Even though it isn’t for 95% of people who make that statement, and you pretty much just won the sex/personality/marriage lottery. Y’know, just sayin’.

    Forgive me for my cynicism, though. Just finished reading about KStew and her affair with the married director. Yuck.

  6. marie says:

    meh, “always knew they’d be together forever, right from the start” isn’t this something you say, I dunno after 20-30 years together? after you’ve proven all the naysayers wrong?

  7. Jan says:

    I believe him since Angie said herself before she and Brad got together and after adopting Maddox she was going to be very careful about who she dated because bringing someone into her life (and the life of her child) would be the man she would eventually marry and stay with forever. I saw the interview and it was before Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

  8. olivia says:

    So another inside source confirming they cheated on the set. Not that I needed confirmation.

    • Allie says:

      It’s wonderful two people are in love and have built a family, but at the expense of a marriage is very trashy, no matter how you package it. Brad should not have gotten involved with Angelina (a known predator of committed men) before he separated from his wife. I think their relationship will not end well and I think Jenifer Aniston should be happy she shed that pile of trash.

      • kira says:

        Oh, please. Jennifer just cheated with a man in a 14 year, live-in relationship. She banged him on set while his girlfriend was at home. It was a full 6 months before Heidi Bivens found out and moved out of the home they shared. That same week, Aniston releases PR photos, kissing her new boyfriend for the press. Aniston NEVER denied the cheating claims. This from a woman who runs to People magazine to deny she spends too much cash on beauty treatments. Her behavior hasn’t been any better than Pitt.

        It’s really amazing how Aniston fans always paint her as the SAINT- victim to Pitt, and NEVER acknowledge that she’s a cheating liar herself. Amaze-balls…

      • lilac says:

        1.Angelina is NOT a ‘known predator of married men’. Contrary to you tabloid loving loonistons, Angelina has never been after married or taken men, unlike trash Aniston.
        2.Aniston herself moved onto Vaughn BEFORE Brad started with Angelina, which was long after he separated. Too bad Justin and Aniston’s happiness is built on STOMPING all over Justin and Heidi Bivens’ relationship. But I bet you are conveniently quiet about THAT one, huh?
        3.I think Brad is happy to be rid of that slutty homewrecking cheating piece of trash Aniston. He certainly upgraded when he dumped her in the gutter where she belongs. Let Justin and pedophile Richardson have their fun with her. Brad dodged a bullet when she refused to have his children and I think he breathes a sigh of relief every day.

    • Katherine says:

      “olivia says: so another inside source confirming they cheated on the set”

      That’s not what he said. You will interpret his words to suit your own take on this but don’t pretend he said anything like that.

      He says at the start of their relationship. He says nothing about on set. They weren’t flying planes together in 2004.

      Seriously give it up. There has never been any proof to refute what Brad and Angelina said – that they began their romantic relationship after the separation in January 2005. Despite what gossip sites have tried to claim they never offer any proof whatsoever.

    • Janet says:

      And whether they did or didn’t, what’s it to you either way?

    • Lira says:

      Late Paul Newman would have found so difficult to live with J.Woodward for how long? Worrying about the Olivias of his time, I bet Tom Hanks and his wife still cannot even sleep thinking that they broke relationships to be together and become a new family! Poor guys they are/were hated by Hw, oh wait…

    • lilac says:

      You must be on something to get that from the above. The article never said anything about it. But most sane people know its a fact thats been proven that no cheating happened. Leave that for the Jennifer Anistons and their over-stretched vajajays to do. Aniston is so busy spreading her legs for the taken men in Hollywood and the pedophile photographers.

  9. lisa2 says:

    Well I guess Brad and Angie are “boring” when you are basing it on tabloid lies. Lies that have been printed for years and are very obviously LIES.

    Fans enjoy them being boring to other. We like that they are together raising a family. And anyone that is living a life with the person they love may be boring. But happily so I may add.

    Good for them and I hope they have a very very long life together.

  10. Chatcat says:

    YAWN….STRETCH. Next thread please.

  11. RN says:

    Hey, US magazine, they “complement” each other, not “compliment”. That writer should go work for the Daily Mail, where it’s expected for you to be unable to write proper English.

  12. RN says:

    Hey, US magazine, they “complement” each other, not “compliment”. That writer should go work for DM (daily mail), where it’s expected for you to be unable to write proper English.

    • Tanya says:

      actually it is spelled ‘compliment’…they were correct in their spelling. sorry to be a poop.. ;-) I have this thing about spelling…. complement is incorrect.

      • Kelly says:

        Not that you guys asked for a tiebreaker, but, in this context, it should be complement (as in they complement one another or go together well) vs. compliment (as in one tells the other nice things about the other).

      • zut alors! says:

        I believe in this instance RN is correct.

        Definition of complement:
        Add to (something) in a way that enhances or improves it; make perfect.

        Complimenting each other, would be more like:
        Angie: You are so handsome
        Brad: Why thank you. You are the most gorgeous woman ever to walk the earth.
        Angie: (blushing)…. I love your expertise with the motorcycle, the way you grip the handlebar just gets my lady parts a tingling.
        Brad: All for you my dear. May I just say when I see you in the cockpit ready for takeoff, well, I can’t wait for liftoff.

        I imagine that the compliments would get tired after a while, even with their outsized egos.

      • Tanya says:

        oh gosh..I AM wrong…. I did NOT know about the correct way to use compliment or complement… my bad.. sorry.. :-( I just learned something…. I wonder if English English, as we use in Canada uses those two as well so I can just blame my schooling….. ;-) probably not, I’ll own my goofiness… ;-)

      • Kate says:

        I’m English, and we do indeed have the distinction. It’s like discrete and discreet, phase and faze. Different meanings completely, although often confused.

  13. zut alors! says:

    My spidey sense is tingling! Why is jeweler dude going on ‘forever’ bs?

  14. LoLa says:

    Think of the dramz if Angie got caught cheating on Brad Pitt like kstew and rpatz.

    We already know Pitt is a cheater and for him to cheat would not be a shocker, but if it turned out Angelina is cheating… Wow. I would be surprised…and shocked.

    • lilac says:

      No, ‘we’ don’t know Pitt is a cheater. Because he is not. Its not by accident that he is well-respected as a good guy by his peers. But believe the tabloid lie of an affair if you want. Most people now know the tabloid lie was just that, a lie. Brad has never been a cheater so why would he start now? Aniston is the one who is the homewrecker and cheater and who has form for breaking up relationships and stealing men. But I don’t expect you to know that, because you read tabloids and not news.

  15. TheOriginalMaxi says:

    Ugh, why do most of you guys like these people? Everything they do they do for PR.

  16. ZAX says:

    you call something romance, and destiny, or destined for foreverness, and eternityness birthed out of the pain and misery of someone else. that’s called being delusional. that’s like being proud that your parents robbed a mom and pops store out of all their entire business funds so they could pay for your college tuition. now the mom and pops store owner is poor, and down on her luck. maybe not the greatest analogy but you get my point. and i actually like these two.

    so look, i get that they make it work, i get that they are proving the nay sayers wrong, but to sit here and pretend this was some fairy tale, innoncent pure romance is just DELUSIONAL.

    Quite frankly, Brad is a sagitarius, meaning he is two people in one, conceited, self centered, deluded, and lives in a fantasy world, Angie is a gemini, his opposite, meaning she has two faces to her personality, air head, blows with the wind, does whatever she wants without regards to other’s feelings, self centered and also deluded. On an astrological level, i can see why they work. FOR NOW.

  17. T.C. says:

    Barf X100

    Planting ‘forever in love’ stories now? How despatate.

  18. RHONYC says:

    miss ‘i-won’t-give-birth-b/c-my-family-is-out-there’ knew in order to lock Pitt down she’d have to breed his seed. she keeps him on the move as to limit the LA/US influence on their relationship.

    b*tch is ultra cunning. :evil:

    • zut alors! says:

      Yep, she closed the deal. Didn’t one of Aniston’s close confidants urge her to do the same but she disregarded the advice? She made a wise decision.

      When I look at Angie now, I think of that saying, “be careful for what you wish”. She wished for a big family and the reality turned out to be way more complicated than she could have imagined. Poor thing, no wonder she looks like a shell of her former self. I was watching “Taking Lives” on cable the other night and she was just luminous every time she was on the screen. Contrast that to her appearance on “The Tourist” and it’s like day and night. The last 7 years have been less than kind to her.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Rhonyc, who wrote: “miss ‘i-won’t-give-birth-b/c-my-family-is-out-there’ knew in order to lock Pitt down she’d have to breed his seed. she keeps him on the move as to limit the LA/US influence on their relationship.”

      Nope. Angie was still quite adamant about not having bio kids. She and Brad debated the merits thereof, with him expressing his desire for bio kids, while understanding her feelings and objections to doing so.

      After living with Maddox for a while and being involved in Zahara’s adoption, Brad actually changed his mind about bio kids after realizing that he loved Maddox and “Z” as much as he would his bio kids. It was after he told Angie this that she look at him and decided he was the man she wanted to have a baby with. She said she was more surprised at wanting to have Brad’s baby than he was.

      All of this was talked about in great detail in 2005, but everyone was too busy hating on Angie to notice.

      • RHONYC says:

        @ Emma

        uh…yuh-huh, i recall such article.

        however, let’s get down to brass tacks…you know this because you were on Angie/Brad’s staff at the time?

        come on, we’re all friends here. :-P :mrgreen: ;-)

        p.s.- sorry for the dup comment…i’m not use to a macbook, its crazy fast.

    • Esmom says:

      Yes. This has always been my take on it.

      • Truth says:

        Emma is on the right track. You don’t have to be on their staff to know this.

        Their behavior and actual statements point to this being true. Angelina changed her mind about having biological children after being with Brad and she herself said this. They also had two more bilogical children after Shiloh. Rational observations point to this being fairly accurate.

        Yet their detractors will believe lies, distortions, misquotations, and misportrayals instead. Then they have to mock people who state rational observations, facts, and truth.

  19. Bite me aka aniston says:

    Looney here! Robert and Jolie friendship dates back to when she won her Oscar , she wore his jewelry … My prediction wedding is imminent

  20. lilred says:

    Oh, for heavens sake since when is 7/8 years forever…do they have a special crystal ball? My Mother and father in law were married 51 years before he passed that is forever…

  21. Lira says:

    Good for them , 7/8 years in HW time is like an eternity!

  22. Christian says:

    Zzzzzzz. Brad Pitt can be good with the right director, but laaaawd Angelina Jolie is an awful actress. And that jewelry line she did was fug. That is all.

  23. The Original Mia says:

    I kinda believe it. Brad changed his entire life for her. That’s telling to me. She had a child with him within a year of meeting. I think they knew what they had went beyond a mere on-set fling (hello, Kristen Stewart!) and was something real & lasting.

    I think it’s romantic.

  24. original kate says:

    ““I’d never share something that should be between two people and that is very romantic and special and something for them.”

    ummm…he just did.

    • lisa2 says:

      The other things he said have already been said before. So nothing new. Maybe that is what he meant

      there is big event tonight that Brad and Angie are reported to be hosting Honoring Mr. Ali. they are are going to auction a pair of Angie’s earrings. Procop is in town for the jewelry line that is being sold.

      He had known them both for many years. I rather hear from real people then the unnamed sources in the majority of stories. And some of the people here never question a negative story. But if there is anything positive it is PR.

    • lucy2 says:

      That’s what I was thinking too, kate, he’s talking an awfully lot for someone who is supposed to keep his clients business private. I would assume he got the OK from them to discuss such things, a nice little PR blurb.

  25. Toot says:

    My celeb weakness is Angelina and Brad. I comment on others, but my favs are these two and I actually care about them.

    I would feel like the Rob/Kristen fans do right now if something happened with them.

  26. I Choose Me says:

    “The relationship may have been all flying planes and riding motorcycles at the start, but any new relationship is exciting that way,” he says. “Now though, they’ve settled into this wonderfully strong family unit and it’s beautiful how in love they are.”

    Over the years, Procop says both Jolie, 37, and Pitt, 48, have sought his help custom-making gifts for one another.

    “Angelina came to me six years ago to create a pendant for Brad as a present,” he reveals…”

    So naturally, when it came time to pop the question to the mother of his six children, Pitt turned to Procop for help designing a ring for his bride-to-be. (The final result is a piece of jewelry boasting an estimated 16-carat, emerald-cut diamond and worth approximately $500,000.)

    “Over the years, I have been entrusted with some wonderful secrets,” Procop teases. “I’d never share something that should be between two people and that is very romantic and special and something for them.”

    Translation: I designed Brangelina’s wedding ring. You too can cement your FOREVER LURVE by buying one of my designs. How very “Every kiss begins with Kay’s” *rolls eyes*

    After all the couples on rocks over the past month, i.m glad they are keeping it together. Im annoyed wiv Procop. He is not required to validate their love. Shesh.

    • zut alors! says:

      I’m pretty sure what he said was sanctioned by them. His “I know their secrets” line is so juvenile. It’s as though he’s begging the tabs to start trolling him. They need to make him sign a confidentiality agreement.

  29. Sakyiwaa says:

    After all the couples on rocks over the past month, i.m glad they are keeping it together. Im annoyed wiv Procop. He is not required to validate their love. Shesh.

    Im sincerely enjoying their time of freedom from tabloid lies. Glad the tabs finally wised up and noticed there were other couples in HW actually falling apart.

    miss seeing them do an RC together tho :-) !

  34. Emma says:

    They lasted a lot longer than expected. I remember reading so many “he’ll leave her in a year and regret dumping poor perfect Jennifer” and “she’ll cheat on him and break his heart like he broke Jen’s blah blah” comments. They still seem madly in love. The circumstances might not have been ideal but like Courtney Cox and Jennifer herself have said, Brad was honest about his feelings for Angelina. And amidst this Kristen/Rupert affair where they only admitted to it because they were caught, I give kudos to Brad, Angelina and Jennifer for handling it way better.

    • Truth says:

      Why are people misconstruing alleged remarks from Robert Procop as confirmation of anything? He probably meant from the start of their relationship they knew it would last, not from the moment they met.

      Quit going by Aniston’s spin and her twisting around Brad’s words to act like a victim. From somebody who knows him and his associates…Brad NEVER brought up Angelina in their breakup discussion. They did bring her up earlier when he denied the rumors and there was no evidence behind the tabloid claims which Aniston extensively investigated.

      Brad did not discuss Angelina inappropriately with Aniston during his marriage. He never said she was the cause and Aniston was basically twisting his words around. He admitted that they connected well and there was a little bit of flirting but that it was innocent which was the truth. He had no contact with Jolie outside of shooting. People blow off anything about Aniston’s behavior, personality, and their issues to point the finger wrongly at Jolie for exaggerating for what at the time, was just a harmless crush that was NOT acted upon at all.

      There was NO cheating or infidelity. Angelina did not even play a major factor and Brad did not say anything improper about her because there was nothing there yet. Anything romantic between them happened after he split with Aniston.

      Their breakup was a mutual and peaceful one. They released a joint statement denying third parties. They were even spotted hanging out together amicably after his separation. It wasn’t until after three months after their breakup that he unexpectedly became romantically involved with Jolie..did Aniston change her tune and backtrack from her previous statements to play victim and villify Angelina.

      I guess people will forget her series of interviews, what her friends have said, and the fact that the tabs/gossip articles were planted by dozens of her cronies/Pr team phoning in stories that trashd Brad & Angelina horribly. She corralled the press around her to fuel fire to a fictional scandal based on tabloid gossip.

      There was nothing bad about the circumstances. They broke up and he moved on with Jolie despite accusations. Other celebs have been in that situation with co-stars and rumors but only Aniston was vindictive enough to exploit it and add mileage to corrupt claims.

  35. mimi says:

    If anything, I think they are a bit boring and nobody cares about them anymore.

    He is the actor among the two of them, and no doubt they are both very good looking and I love the way she is is helping to bring awareness to the plight of people around the world, but their relationship is no longer interesting and I think they are both kind of boring.

  36. Jackie O says:

    ya, they are focused on their young family right now, but let’s see in about 5 years. i’m sure by then there will be reports of her having an affair with one of her costars. i would put money on it.

  37. santacruz says:

    If this is true, Angelina’s gift does NOT convey that she loves him, but that he loves her. How self-centered. This is the undercurrent I get from this pair. Although an unabashed Brangelina fan, I’ve noticed that Brad eyes rarely match the smile when photographed together, or in interviews, Angelina stops short of saying she is in love with her partner. Perhaps their family is all that is holding them together.

  38. Carpe Diem says:

    Oh I can imagine it. I’m not a pitt fan, but if I were him and I’d just met Ange and she’s all into kids and his wife didn’t want kids, hell yeah.

    (Plus I think they have an open relationship which can help bridge that ‘forever’ gap.)

    Similar goals, but not too much alike to get boring… yeah, I see it. (I still think she’ll get bored with him eventually but w/e, heh.) They’re like family now; good on them.

  39. Lazy writer says:

    It’s complement, although I’m sure they do compliment each other.
