Here are some photos from the past year of Angelina Jolie looking lovey-dovey and super-friendly with Brad Pitt’s mother Jane Pitt. Jane, as we found out earlier this year, is a bit of a hyper-conservative wingnut. Which is fine. To each their own, etc. While Jane’s son Brad is a self-described liberal who believes in gay marriage and all of that jazz, we still don’t really know where Angelina stands on many issues. She sees herself as a diplomatic figure, so she really doesn’t come out for or against many polarizing issues, and I’ve long suspected that Angelina is closeted neoconservative. So what’s the big deal? Star Magazine is trying to make Angelina and Jane’s “polar-opposite political views” a wedge issue that will tear the Pitt family apart! Jane is going to start calling her “Angelina Hussein Jolie”!!!
If you’re facing family drama this holiday season, you’re not alone. Angelina Jolie is squaring off against Brad Pitt’s mom – again – this time, over where the Brangelina brood will spend Christmas.
“As usual, Angie has no desire to spend her holidays in the Midwest, something Brad’s mom, Jane, finds rude and insulting. But Angie couldn’t care less,” reveals a source close to the famous couple, adding that Angie and Jane’s polar-opposite political views are the root of the discord.
“They have such different opinions on everything,” the friend explains. “Brad’s parents are extremely right-wing and religious. Angie has to bite her tongue to keep the peace.”
Predictably, Jane blames Angie for not seeing her grandchildren more often. “It’s been a sore point for Brad’s mom for years,” the insider says. “She loves to have all her grandkids together, but that rarely happens – and she says it’s Angie’s doing.”
Brad, 48, seems determined to sell his fiancée on the idea of a Missouri Christmas and even dragged her and the kids to Springfield last week. But Angelina won’t budge.
“Visits to the Pitt home have been awkward for Angelina,” our spy continues. “She says that not wanting to spend the holidays there isn’t personal, but anyone would see it as a snub.”

Maybe Angelina doesn’t want to go to Missouri because she’d rather be in Kenya or Cambodia or Libya or something. It’s not like Brad’s parents NEVER get to see Angelina and Brad and their kids. The Pitts fly out to LA or London or wherever, and it seems like Angie and Brad make an effort to go to Missouri a few times a year too. I seriously doubt this is a thing. I also doubt that Jane and Angelina talk that much about political stuff.
