Star: Brad Pitt & George Clooney are BFFs again now Angelina’s out of the way

wenn1332636

Whenever the tabloids tried to make “George Clooney & Angelina Jolie hate each other” into a thing, I always think back to the Newsweek roundtable discussion Jolie and Clooney participated in back in 2008, for the Oscar season. While Clooney and Jolie didn’t seem like BFFs, it was clear that they were friendly and on good terms. Fun fact: Marion Cotillard was also part of that roundtable! Such a wicked web. Anyway, the tabs have been trying to make it sound like Jolie and Clooney hated each other for years. The only story I really believed was that Angelina was bitchy to Stacy Keibler, just because… that seems like something that would happen. The current issue of Star is trying to make the Clooney-Jolie Beef into something again, this time with an added twist that finally Brad Pitt and George get to be bros again now that the Villainess Jolie has been jettisoned. And Amal made it happen!

The legendary bromance between Brad Pitt and George Clooney is back on! Source confirm that with Angelina Jolie out of the picture, George finally felt comfortable enough to reach out to his old friend.

“Angie never liked George and drove a real wedge between him and Brad,” explains a mutual pal. “But George is a very forgiving guy and wants to be there for his buddy as he goes through his divorce.”

In fact, it was George’s wife, Amal, who encouraged her hubby to reach out to Pitt, says the insider: “She knows how much not having Brad around has hurt him.”

Now the A-list dudes are making up for lost time.

“Their catch-up drink turned into an emotional, five-hour talk,” reveals the source. “It’s a huge help to the poor guy – Brad’s finally got his friend in his corner.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Just my opinion: George and Brad were never BFFs in the first place. They were friends and colleagues and they liked each other. People wanted them to be BFFs and they used that communal desire to sell three Ocean’s movies. Besides, right at this moment, George is directing a movie and he probably has zero time to spend hours at a wine-soaked Pitt cryfest. Now, do I think George will absolutely be on Team Pitt in the upcoming Jolie-Pitt War? Sure. Absolutely. I think most people will be on Brad’s side. He’s Hollywood’s Golden Boy and Angelina is The Villainess. We’ll see.

    Wow, Brad must be like really weak and totally lack a backbone, if Angelina managed to not only steal him from his wife but also ‘drive a huge wedge’ between him and all his besties. Pooooooor little bad. Yeah, no, this narrative isn’t going to wash. Sorry Star.

    • Sage says:

      The Star article does make Brad appear really weak, easily influenced with no free will of his own. And, I don’t think he’s like that at all. I actually don’t think he is as dumb as people make him out to be.

      If Brad wanted to be BFFs with George, Melissa, Julia etc. he would be.

      • Minxx says:

        Most men would distance themselves from friends if they didn’t appeal to wife/significant other. That’s the sad truth, unfortunately. My best friend’s wife did everything she could to pull him away from friends she didn’t like (for no good reason, just to be clear).

  2. Fa says:

    George envy angelina nothing to do with Brad

  3. Jesie says:

    They were never friends, just friendly work colleagues. Even during Oceans, George was always off with Matt and Don Cheadle. I can’t think of any time they’ve been seen together that wasn’t Oceans related or an industry event, and they’ve both repeatedly made it crystal clear that they like each other but they’re in no way close, so I have no idea why the idea of them being BFF’s took off the way it did. Wishful thinking I guess, though why anyone cares enough to build a whole narrative about two 50-somethings friendship status is beyond me.

    • lkj says:

      Yeah. Pitt didn’t even go to Clooney’s wedding. He might not even have been invited.

      • Don't kill me I'm French says:

        AND He was In Europe at this period

      • sage says:

        He flew from LA to London for a couple days to attend Guy Ritches wedding without Angelina.

        If Brad and George wanted to be friends, they would be friends.

    • Lindsay says:

      Especially when there are real celebrity friendships that are way more interesting. Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart, Snoopy Dogg and Martha Stewart (apparently Stewart make good friends), Biden and Obama.

      Although I do love George’s pranks. The painting one still cracks me up because he played the long game over like six months and went out of his way to sell it. That is how you do pranks. Not by sending used condoms (Jared Leto) or picking up and assaulting celebrities (YouTube guy) or using a dummy on an ATV to make your girlfriend think she just watched an ATV accident that killed her little boy (other YouTube guy).

  4. Locke Lamora says:

    Brad always seemed like an asshole.

    Why was Angelina mean to Stacy?

  5. Shambles says:

    Sexist horsesh!t.
    Brad Pitt and George Clooney are grown men, it if Angelina was able to “drive a wedge” between them they were never really that tight in the first place. Or maybe George is secretly in love with Angelina and so he took it out on Brad by distancing himself. Or maybe it’s made-up, sexist horsesh!t.

    • almondmilk says:

      Considering who George married, a very skinny brunette with big eyes who is immersed in foreign policy, international justice and refugee issues via the law.

      It does seem like he was trying to either get someone Angelina-esque, or best Brad’s choice of mate.

      Always thought it odd that marriage was a no-go for any number of Hollywood starlets, and wannabes – or even together women in his own industry…and yet Amal, became what broke the Clooney ‘never marry’ pledge.

      I always thought Angelina had more in common with George than Brad anyway (maybe Brad saw it too and that’s why he kept his distance), though i felt Brad was giving it the ol college try.

      Great body language vid is the Hollywood premiere of Oceans 13. George comes up, Angelina is breathtaking being adored by her man and vice versa, George moves in and Brad hugs her ever so tighter. True story.

      • norah says:

        I think george was a bit possessive over brad esp during the premiere for the last ocean’s movie. he looked upset

  6. Deni says:

    I never thought they were Matt and Ben close but I do believe they had great chemistry and that could easily have developed into a close enduring friendship. I think Clooney certainly wanted that and (sue me) that Brad did too. I also think that Brad consistently loses his identity when he is in relationships and that she probably did steer him away from that relationship. Now that could be his own fault for not knowing who he is and asserting it or it could be hers depending on how she asserted her dominance in the relationship. Either way, I do believe that a guy who was out and about before he met her, iced out his friends and began mirroring her reclusive ways with industry colleagues.

    • almondmilk says:

      @Deni

      “Her reclusive ways?” Excuse me do you know her? Contrary to Chelsea Handler and a stupid tabloid narrative, Angelina is a mom of six, has friends and is not a recluse…and in her spare time she travels the world with her UN and policy wonk peeps, bringing awareness to disposessed, trying to save the world or at least make it better.

      It’s clear to anyone with eyes that she has more important things to do than arrange Brad’s social calendar, like his mommy.

      What’s been inspiring about them as a couple is that they’ve seemingly wanted what’s best for each other, and have supported one another in that and whatever else they wanted do. It’s why Brad’s finally got his Oscar and has made/produced some amazing Oscar winning/nom’d films. It’s why Angelina has her kids, and blockbuster films, her 2nd Oscar nod and a Herscholt Oscar at home. They’ve accomplished a lot together. None of that comes from being closed off by your peers or being a recluse. Your peers have to be on your side, like you and vote for you. Ask Brad’s ex Rachel, who despite 30 yrs in the business doesn’t have one.

      • Greata says:

        @almondmilk…Spot On! Logic and reason in a sea of conjecture, and madness.

      • LinaLamont says:

        Your peers don’t have to like you to vote for you. They have to like your work. Of course, if there’s an overwhelmingly intense disgust or personal grievance with someone, that could influence you… we’re all human. Being closed off or reclusive does not preclude having your work being appreciated and/or rewarded.

      • almondmilk says:

        @linalamon

        Who’s the last recluse who *won* an Oscar?

        That aside, you miss my point.

        Angelina isn’t one.

        She and Brad have been front and center in H’wood for a long time, there was a stretch for a long time where there wasn’t a red carpet in sight during award season that they weren’t on because of their work.

        Outside of their life as a couple, he had his life, she had hers and they met in the middle a lot ( see Jolie Pitt Fdn) and made the world a little better.

        Star narrative is sexist misogynistic tabloids bs, because they know women will always step up to the plate to tear each other apart.

        Ask Hillary

      • V4Real says:

        I could believe that Brad steered away from George a bit after his relationship with AJ started. It happens in the real world it could happen in the land of Hollyweird as well. Perhaps AJ didn’t like Brad being around a man that jumped from one piece of ass to another. George at one time was considered the forever bachelor and AJ probably didn’t want Brad being influenced. I can also believe that AJ didn’t care what men Brad was friends with. I can believe both sides because I don’t know her and will not pretend I do like some people on this site does.

        Brad and George were friends but I wouldn’t have called them BFF. That was the media hyping that up. But still let’s not start putting AJ back on this pedestal as if she is above all things. I think most of you learned the hard way she is not after filing for divorce. How many times the people who believed that AJ could do no wrong swore others were crazy and jealous when they spoke ill words about Brad’s and AJ relationship. Some fans believe AJ and Brad had the perfect relationship and would never end and then look what happen? And every couple wants the best for each other when they are in a serious relationship until the relationship goes foul. Then they start mud slinging until they realize that may have not been the best course of action.

        What I find funny is some people on this post are saying they don’t believe this story while some are acting as if the story is fact by saying it’s because George wanted AJ, or George chose Amal because of her similarities to AJ. That means they must believe the story is true, if not why drag George and Brad over a made up lie. For all we know George probably hasn’t even talked to Brad.

      • almondmilk says:

        Write another post just waiting to come through-

        I don’t get your logic @v4real

        How do people noticing similarities between AJ and Amal, and/or me bringing up the possibility Brad is actually not all that keen to hang-out with George anyway….

        Validate or support a tabloids narrative that Angelina is busy keeping George away from Brad?

        None of those things have anything to do with the other.

        If anything it speaks to George admiring what Brad has, and that’s about it.

      • BonnieJean says:

        @V4Real…I agree with you.

      • almondmilk says:

        @v4real

        Okay, perhaps other post was way too long. Not thru yet. I’ll try to be succinct this time.

        1)I can’t speak for all of AJ’s fans, but i can speak for a lot of them, because i know a lot of them. Unlike those haters (both out and closeted detractors) that resent her and resent the fans who admire her–
        – we’ve admired her for a long time not because she is ‘on a pedastal’ or ‘a saint’ or ‘without flaw’ or any of the other backhanded slaps she gets from bitter folks, but because the opposite is true: She’s a flawed person who tackles her demons and betters herself when/if she can. She tries.

        That won’t end the ‘saint’ talk but it’s a true representation of how I feel. But it’s ok, most of us know when some women infer that fans think her a saint, it’s used sarcastically – what they really want to do is denigrate her and her fans. In their perfect world Angelina would have no admirers.

        The hate directed at powerful women by women, is so destructive. See the election.

        2) As for the implication that her actions filing for a divorce and gathering a team in the wake of Brad’s public incident that caused agencies to investigate, is in some way demeaning to her character…that’s also more misogyny. i don’t think it detracts or demeans Angelina’s character because she gathered a team to prevent her child being dragged in the press: “Maddox Hates His Dad!” That’s what a Mother does to protect her children.

        3)Lastly, sorry to be the bearer of bad news: but just because a 12yr long union has apparently gone bust after some event on a plane – that doesn’t mean all of the haters wishful thinking and fantasies concerning their union over the years (she trapped him, he really doesn’t love her, she really doesn’t love him, he trapped her, she doesn’t trust him, he doesn’t trust her, etc.) were true. It just means they split one day in Sept. 2016 …or they haven’t. It will mean more when they tell you…or never will, if they don’t.

        But high fiving and claiming you knew it all along and/or implying their fans thought they were indestructible when we didn’t – is just more ways to demean them and us.

        “Who’s the last recluse who *won* an Oscar?”

        I don’t think Angelina is a recluse, maybe a loner. She seems okay with being on her own. Brad appeared more social pre-jolie, so we will see what hes like post-jolie.

      • Original T.C. says:

        @Almond Milk

        Co-sign on everything you said. Especially the freak out and sarcastic “saint Angelina” any time someone mentions positive attributes about Jolie. You apparently can’t mention her work with refugees without saying something negative about her at the same time.

        The only time I’ve seen reflex reactions like that are when others feel insecure about their own lack of charity work or they are afraid the person will become popular (yes saw it in high school).

    • Lindsay says:

      By Matt and Ben do you mean George and Brad? Matt and Ben have been friends for a very long time.

    • V4Real says:

      @Almond Did I say it was you. I said some people on this post, not Almondmilk said.

      “But high fiving and claiming you knew it all along and/or implying their fans thought they were indestructible when we didn’t – is just more ways to demean them and us. ”

      Now you’re typing nonsense. What did I claim I knew? And what is this us stuff? Are you Brad’s and AJ friend, family member, I’m not trying to demean anybody. I was a fan of Brad and AJ before they got together, while they were together and now that they are separate. I just don’t buy into all the crap that comes out of celebrities mouth, or the image they only want you to see, maybe you do.

      As for number 2, are you serious, you can’t be. AJ ran to the press with the divorce and tried to paint Brad as a bad father with the whole health of my family. Wasn’t Brad a big part of the family. She managed to keep her wedding, and health concerns under wrap until she was ready to release them, she could have kept the divorce quiet a few more days. Or all she had to say was we are divorcing, or irreconcilable differences. So stop with the pity party for AJ and the whole painting her as being demeaned. Some people take their defense of this woman way too serious.

      • almondmilk says:

        my last post was too long

        @v4real

        Who said anything about buying into crap? I don’t buy into crap. But i also don’t create crap out of thin air. When you have no reason to think a couple is unhappy and in trouble, why go there?

        It’s not like we had signals re the Garner Afflecks, with her sobbing for no reason on talk shows, his being called out constantly for not being into his wife and proclaiming what work, work and more work it was to her face at the Oscars. No one was surprised that they went bust or that Ben has nanny relations. Everyone is more surprised that they may be back together.

        Conversely, i don’t need to make up stuff that isn’t there about brangelina to denigrate their relationship because i wish it hadn’t looked so happy.

        I don’t have to pretend this wasn’t a public incident of a possible drunk Dad fighting with a minor child and infer it was your standard ‘we grew apart’ divorce proceeding that Angelina could have kept quiet and on the down low.

        Add in the fact she may have been using the whole incident as leverage for Brad to clean up for ‘the health of their family, ‘ as she said.

        I don’t know what part of public and 3 agency investigation, people don’t get. I don’t know what part of ‘health of the family’ people don’t get.

        Unless you’re implying this is just Angelina ‘making up crap’ and being a b* – if so, yeah… Some fan.

      • sage says:

        “Some people take their defense of this woman way too serious.”

        True, but it’s a nice balance to those that live to demean her.

      • Kristin says:

        I gotta agree with you there. I know this site (which I LOVE) is a huge Angelina fan, but I’ve never warmed to her. She’s openly admitted she doesn’t have friends, especially women friends. And as a general rule, I don’t trust chicks who don’t have female friends.

  7. Lucy says:

    So, will we ever stop talking about this people-being-stolen-from-other-people-by-other-people thing? Like, will we, as a society, ever give up talking on those terms, as if human beings were objects? Oh, wait, because that would mean the crashing and burning of Star Magazine.

  8. LAK says:

    Haven’t read the article, BUT i’ve been waiting for a variation on this article since the divorce announcement.

    Lainey wrote a very amusing version of it under the Brad + Julia screening of MOONLIGHT. Something about the high school prom King wandeting back to the popular table after spending time with *Laney Boggs.

    *the main female character in SHE’S ALL THAT. A film in which the wierd, art, loser of a girl somehow catches the interest of the high school stud and wins him away from his trivial, shallow, pretentious friends for love and a more meaningful existence. After undergoing a cinderella make over first.

  9. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    Are these stories meant to make Brad look better? If so, they are not working at all. He comes off as a weak-willed loser who cannot commit to being an adult and taking responsibility for his actions. He likes to do the easy stuff in relationships, but bolts when it gets too hard-first emotionally, then physically.

    • GoOnGirl says:

      Aiobhan: I totally agree. Brad does come off looking week willed and a total wimp. And why is it only Angelina, with six children, who can’t fly around the world? Aren’t these Brad’s children too? You know Angelina is getting blamed for everything. Something happened on that plane and not once have I heard Brad come out and apologize for his actions and seeking some sort of rehab. But that’s all Angelina’s fault. If she just hadn’t made Brad do it. . . Brad is the one put on a pedestal. He plays the “aw shuck” person to a T. Why hasn’t he come out and defended the mother of his children while all the tabloids are slinging mud at her left and right? While implying Brad did nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, wrong. IMO, Angelina is better off without him. I want her to continue to soar like an eagle; run and not get weary and continue to receive the many blessings that are sure to come her way, and do it with out Brad.

      • YepIsaidit says:

        Yaaaas!! I’m so happy more people are taking off their blinders where Pitt Is concerned. He’s the one with the “saintly image” – he could do no wrong. It’s always Angelina’s fault and now he’s left her with the burden of not only taking blame but also trying to heal her children after whatever the F he did to them. He’s sick!!

        Almond milk, that’s exactly why I like her- not because she’s a “Saint” but because she is admittedly flawed and seems to try to grow as a person.

I used to be a brangeloonie with everyone else, but my blinders.came off when Angelina started releasing all that information on brad,to the tabloids, when all I use to hear was glowing remarks on what a great dad,, husband he was, he made a mistake as people do and she tried to destroy him in the press, Itthink that’s what people are responding to, he was great until he wasn’t , im sure she is no saint, but sheis acting like she is, again, brad shouldn’t have to defend Angelina, she is doing a great job of that already, brad needs to move on, with his children, don’t say anything, people just want to vilify him more when he says anything, when it was reported he was not going to promote this movie, they called him selfish, when he did promote it, he was selfish, he can’t win.

        Yea, it’s bizarre. He’s like a b*tchy mean girl trapped in the body of a 70yr old man. Went on Larry King at least twice and somehow stretched himself into a pretzel to bring her up. His opening was gay marriage. Larry have him Brad’s quote about ‘we’ll get married when everyone can.’ As only a purely jealous ‘embittered old misogynist queen can do, he proceeded to imply that Brad was lying and it was just his excuse not to marry Angelina who he proceeded to call ‘not beauty, because i know beauty, and a 5..’ talk about her kissing her brother, inferred she was promiscuous. ‘been with so many guys she makes me look like a baby’ then got on her about her relationship with her dad, said her lips were too big…and on and on.. Larry was stunned, i guess Drumpf noticed Larry looking at him like he was batshite, and sheepishly said ‘i guess you can tell I’m not a fan.’

        Keep in mind, he doesn’t know her.

        He was like the mirror twin of Chelsea Handler.

        What straight 60yr old man do you know, spends that much energy clawing up a 29 yr old new mom?

      Yup. I read Stacey’s own words.

      Not that the bloid narrative will ever correct the record on the word of a woman.

      I think the whole idea behind this kiebler tab narrative was that Angelina was supposed to be this snob…oh, and of course always jealous.

      Which kills me. She epitomizes the opposite of snob. Look at her life. Also, Angelina’s closest girlfriends are a veteran character actress Jill Armenante, and a stunt woman Eunice Huthart. Yet she would be a snob to Stacey? So dumb.

      george married amal because he wanted another aj clone but he isn’t brad pitt anyway and so amal ended up overshadowing him esp since all his films have been flopping everywhere.

      I hope Angelina is smarter than that. She must feel so betrayed by him. First with what happened on that plane that forced her to feel the need to protect her children, then having to deal with child protective services and FBI- during and after all that she has to deal with the mud slung at her and her children that was helped along by his pR team – unforgivable in my eyes.

      This is worse than any cheating he’s ever done -and I’m sure he’s done plenty.

    Clooney and Pitt aren’t BFFs. For one, Clooney said as much back in ’06 when it wasn’t clear if Brad would bounce back from the backlash of moving on w/Angelina. Plus, Clooney spills too much. Case in point-WWZ. No one really knew what Brad thought or how he felt until Clooney decided to open his big mouth.

    I’ve always said that Brad’s best friend is likely his brother Doug because dude is like a vault. There is finally some peace and quiet on the JP front, whicwill hopefully continue beond Thanksgiving and Pax’s b-day. It’s highly doubtful that Clooney is even on Brad’s radar.

      Brad ‘s best friends are the persons who were invited at their wedding in France.David Fincher And his brother for ex

    I am positive that sometime in the past couple years, either Brad or George was quoted as saying they were not very close friends, merely colleagues who liked to goof around when at the same awards shows.

    Clooney and Pitt are friends when it’s good for business. Would anyone actually think they were friendly if it weren’t for all of the Ocean’s 11/12/13/87 promo? That said, lawd these recent events have only confirmed what I suspected – a jellyfish has more spine the Brad Pitt. I don’t know how Angelina put up with it for so long. Anyone else find similarities in Angie and Amal? Like I know that a distinguished human rights lawyer and an actress have seemingly vastly different life experiences and perspectives but they both obviously have convictions they believe in and the things they both fight for overlap. I really like everyone involved in this story except for Brad Pitt. Brad, you are the weakest link!

    • GoOnGirl says:

      Scout, you are absolutely correct. Pitt is the weakest link.

    • Zut alors! says:

      I concur wholeheartedly. When it comes to strength of will, Angie’s got it in spades. Brad, not so much. Hope none of the bio kids inherit his weak shapeshifting tendencies.

  22. Minxx says:

    Were Brad and Angelina friends with other couples? Like spend time together, go on trips etc? I can’t think of a single one except early in the George/Amal relationship or maybe I’m mistaken?

  23. BJ says:

    If Brad and George were close, a reporter would not have had to tell George about the divorce.George and Brad are work friends.

    Why wasn’t she nice to Stacey Kiebler? That’s pathetic if true

      @Libragirl

      It’s a tabloid lie. Why so quick to believe? That could be called pathetic. Scroll up – even Kiebler said it was not true.

      Apparently women are so willing to believe lies and nonsense about other women in the media, hoping it makes the woman they hate look bad – that they spread this one sufficiently far and wide enough that Stacey addressed it.

      The whole Chelsea Handler narrative ‘Angelina can’t be trusted she’s an evil demon that hates all women,’ drives the tabloids industry. They count on women cannabilizing each other.
