LOL, of course People Magazine had to devote another article to The UnTriangling Of Brad & Jen. Fourteen years, you guys. That’s how long it’s been since Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston announced their split. Around this time 14 years ago, Brad and Angelina Jolie were furtively meeting up here and there, and then they were photographed together in Kenya in April 2005. Again, 14 YEARS AGO. But people still have so many feelings about “Brad & Jen.” Which is why Us Weekly and People Magazine are milking this for all it’s worth. Jennifer knew exactly what she was doing when she invited Brad to her 50th birthday party, and Brad knew exactly what he was doing when he showed up. Here’s People’s latest:
Brad Pitt not only showed up to support his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston as she celebrated her 50th birthday on Feb. 9, but he also sent her a present—as did most of her other celebrity friends who turned up for the star-studded soirée.
“Most birthday party guests sent gifts to Jen’s house,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Brad did too. Her friends are all very generous and creative, and she seemed very excited by all the gifts.”
The source adds that most of Aniston’s friends were also very pleased to see that Pitt, 55, showed up to the bash.
“He was invited, so why shouldn’t he go?” another source says of Aniston’s ex, who was married to the former Friends star between 2000-2005. “He’s single and has no one to answer to. He and Jen spent many important and happy years together. He obviously decided to join her celebration because he wanted to.”
Pitt split from his second wife Angelina Jolie, with whom he shares seven children, in 2016. (Their divorce is still ongoing.) But despite his rocky split from Aniston in 2005, there are no hard feelings or grudges on either side. The first source says, “Her friends were happy to see Brad at the party. Whatever caused their divorce is long in the past.” An insider told PEOPLE, “Brad and Jen have a very civil relationship.“
Am I the only one laughing? These quotes are cracking me up. “Most birthday party guests sent gifts to Jen’s house. Brad did too. Her friends are all very generous and creative, and she seemed very excited by all the gifts.” What a completely natural way of speaking naturally about something that was completely natural. I would love to know what Brad sent her! Fingers crossed for a McDonald’s gift card.
Also this one: “He’s single and has no one to answer to”– is that what his relationship/marriage to Angelina was? He had to ANSWER to Angelina, that vile seductress, that maniacal villainess! And this one: “Whatever caused their divorce is long in the past.” “Whatever caused” Brad and Jen’s divorce dumped him in September 2016.

Meanwhile Angelina continues her admirable and important work with refugees, the UN, and raising her wonderful children.
These two need to grow up. That’s always the vibe I got from both of them.
People are tired and aren’t buying whatever it is they are trying to sell
Yep spot on
She wants to be America’s sweetheart on Friends and he wants to be the Golden Boy. The 90s are gone (and the aughts too). It’s so much easier to grow older when you’re not in Hollywood with a big ego.
Yes and Kaiser nailed it with how laughable the quotes are.
Jenn is a successful career-focused woman with a huge fortune and didn’t let a divorce(s) slow her down. I think Angie has had as many divorces. It’s life. Neither is a better or worse person. Good for Jolie for the work she DECIDES to do and the life she decides to live. Good for the life Jenn DECIDES to live as well. Girl power all the way. They are all adults.
Damn he used to be so attractive
He was. Especially in the header photo. I’m also reminded how much skin resurfacing he did.
Yeah I don’t think he looks all that great in some of these photos because of his skin. He started to look really good around 2001. His peak was 2004/2005 Mr and Mrs Smith era, IMO.
Never noticed until now how much Pitt dominated in all the back-in-the-day photos with Aniston. It’s almost at Timberlake-level, only much more subtle. Also, with Aniston he was always clearly the prettier & more magnetic of the two. Not so with Angelina – they were evenly matched, & ocassionally she even outshone him. Huh. Wonder if that was a factor in the demise of their marriage?
Absurdly hot. When he was with Jen, I thought he was the sexiest dude on earth. Not to take a dig at Jen, but I thought he was prettier than her, regardless of how attractive she was. He was just THAT hot.
Yes! Looking at these pictures, I was like, “Damn Brad Pitt used to be HOOOOOOOTTTTTT.” Even hotter than when he was with G. Paltrow.
I think his peak hot was when he was in the Troy movie
Remember A River Runs Through It?
YES, A-River-Runs-Through-It-Brad was THE hottest version of Brad. He was crazy hot back then.
I think Peak Hot Pitt was Mr. and Mrs. Smith/Ocean’s Eleven era.
Although I will admit that when I was a kid I watched Meet Joe Black several times, and not because I thought it was an amazing movie.
Alyssa, yes to Meet Joe Black, a not great movie that I saw way more than once. lol
Peak Brad Pitt hotness for me was “Thelma and Louise” Everything was downhill from there IMO lol
For me it was Legends of the Fall that did it.
He always grossed me out and he sucked at acting. How did this obsession escalate? I never watched friends or whatever- the premise was #sowhite before there was a #sowhite. I did see her rom com w Jim Carey and I’m admit she is better in motion than in stills. She comes across as smart/sweet. Less manic more pixie. So is it a slow news cycle?? Ugh.
Legends of the fall and a river runs through it are practically the same movie, but he was hot in both.
What do you think the card with the gift said? “Please invite me I need good publicity”?
hahahaha! Love this!
“I’m lovin’ it … all this good PR, that is!”
He is a loser in my mind. This narrative that Angie is the devil and he is just a poor sap that got caught in her spell. He is weaker than I thought.
People Magazine needs to grow up.
This guy’s is just so messy and he’s what 55 years old? Instead of getting better with age we have this. Good luck to any woman who wants that. I would run as fast as I could from all of that drama.
I am sure Angie doesnt care and is super glad she dumped his pathetic ass. Heck even i am glad she cut him lose. Such a loser
Looking at the photos, she was always more in love with him then he was with her! Also, what’s up with People magazines fact checkers – – “seven” children?
They’re probably including Brad as the seventh child, haha.
LMAO. Thanks Lucky Charm.
But I am struck by how utterly happy Jen looks in all those pictures. There’s a softness and ease in her that disappeared afterward.
That happens when your man strays and goes after another woman “at work.” Your trust naturally lessens. I don’t blame her one bit.
I’m so over this big pile of manure. It is fictional and ridiculous. I say again the people wanting this union only want it to rub Angie’s face in it. Really like she wants him back. Jen has issues, she thought she was ugly once upon a time and she is very insecure. Hence her obsession with someone as beautiful as Jolie.
She was obsessed with being Mrs Pitt also. She had a majority of people supporting and holding her up after her divorce and it still didn’t help her issues. To me Pitt is a difficult person to be in a relationship with. We still don’t know exactly why she and JT divorced. It happened after Angie filed so I hope and pray she isn’t still pining over that man. God help her.
Meanwhile in real life Angelina is going on with her life and looks better than ever.
Double Woah …
I third your Woah.
Fourthing it. Talk about invested,
Meanwhile in real life Angelina is going on with her life and looks better than ever
Exactly this and it must really hurt she’s not engaging with their shenanigans
In all honesty I never believed in that relationship w/ JT. Seemed forced, never real. I doubt they were ever in love. I think she was just tired of people saying she should remarry again.
I do think JA is still insecure and still pining over Angie’s success. Lol. Plus, I would not rule out her haven’t the hots for BP but if they get back together or pretend they’re back together, it’s about getting back at Angie for both of them.
Lol. It’s funny how everybody’s mind be on her. I wonder if Angie realizes this too.
Well, your mind is on her.
Invested is putting it mildly.
Their PR is really working overtime. They are both loving the publicity of this, but there are SIX innocent children (not 7, people mag) who are on the receiving end of all this. I’m a mother who got divorced, i know how hurtful people gossiping about their parents can be for them. I hope Pitt is sitting them down & telling them the truth about what is really happening……. or not happening between them. It’s not fair they should have to read & hear all this nonsense from entertainment shows getting all excited about their father reuniting with his ex. Angie seems to ignore it all, but it’s very different for kids in this internet age to shut it out.
Seriously, the slow burn of this story is exhausting. How many articles will we write about this event, each one with its own unique added detail? How much longer can it go on? Will we still be hearing about how Brad hugged Jen at the party two weeks from now? And how Jen talked to her friends about him and wished him well four weeks from now?
Exactly and those people who want this vintage gossip are totally ignoring the pain of 6 innocent children.
As long as these people get to eat popcorn and read about poor Brad caught between good Jennifer & evil Angelina, they are happy.
Yeah, but they don’t care about the kids Maya. It’s not right but BP stans who want them back together don’t care the kids. JA and BP don’t either. Angie and Angie’s fans/stans are the only ones that care about the kids.
I don’t know if JA has stans b/c even tho they liked her w/ BP, they never really support any films JA has been in or anything other than Friends. So I’m always kinda confused on her fan club. They’re kinda fickle.
Maya and Sidewithkids: It is tiring to read you pushing this narrative in every single article that mentions Brad or Angie.
@Snow: didn’t know you were being forced to read our comments.
You are more than welcome to ignore us…
@Maya That seems like a massive reach to me. I doubt the kids are in pain because of some stupid tabloid rumors. What about people who want Kate and Leo to get together? Or Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams? Everyone has a favorite celebrity couple or couple they ship. No one is doing it to hurt kids. And I’m fairly certain it doesn’t cause the kids of those celebrities any pain whatsoever.
Most of these “children” are teens and are used to their famous parents being in the tabloids. If they’re like most teens, they’re more interested in their own peer group than in this tabloid fodder. They can speak with their parents if they have questions or concerns about what is going on.
Oh, these two.
What Angelina do here? It sound to me actually than the two rubbing it on her, her people doesn’t want her to be forgotten when others mention the Blondies’ lol..
You bring the kids hurt card if he just do anything now days that you make people not caring not?
I don’t care abt this but if it works for what it works for it must worth I guess etc
oh dear…too early for popcorn
I think Jen seems pathetic for inviting an ex husband who cheated on her and then was very insensitive in the press. Why would she ever want him there?! It’s not as if it was a “conscious uncoupling” (smirk) and they have to keep the peace bc of kids. Ok, great you’ve forgiven and you’re “cool”, but have a party with your real friends… not fake Hollywood relationships.
As for Brad, of course he went! He needs the good PR!
Glad people are now finally seeing through Brad.
I don’t believe any of this coming from people,but if it is true and this is coming from someone who prefers angelina and doesn’t care about Brad or jen,
Angie is still is pretty close with johnny lee miller and Billy bob.
This isn’t that crazy.
I think it’s completely fabricated though.
People has turned into star
I doubt Angelina cares
I am more surprised that she had John Mayer attend after he held an impromptu press conference about their break up. Does she not realize that she was Rachel in “Friends” and could have better men in her life?
Some people don’t keep grudges, saying that’s ‘pathetic’ seems excessive. For all you know they could be ‘real friends’. People do host parties to network… so I don’t think inviting people who aren’t your friends is a terrible thing.
Just because you don’t invite an ex to your party doesn’t mean you ‘hold a grudge.’ John Mayer said she was boring and unceremoniously dumped her. Twice. Brad Pitt said she was boring and divorced her to be with another woman. Have some self-respect, Jen. Be civil, kind even, when you run into them at events – but don’t invite them to your party. A birthday party is for friends.
I’m not saying not inviting him is grudge-keeping, I am disagreeing with faulting her for inviting him when for all we know she forgave him and considers him a friend.
Forgive him so he can use her again? She has no real friends to tell her what a mistake this was?
Agree – I didn’t see a single person outside CAA or any person of colour.
Because Pharrel Williams and his wife are white? I didn’t know that.
They were there? Didn’t see any pictures of them.
But if they were then yeah, a couple of POC were there.
Were you at the party, Maya?
You were there?
How was it?lol
It never fails…
Uh ofcourse they both knew/know what they were doing🤷🏼♀️..Brad is trying to distract us from his lawsuit,as well as why he’s never seen with the kids(in 3 damn years).The’yre both middle aged individuals,trying to re-live they’re “hey day”& it’s pretty embarrassing to witness.
Personally….this seems like one of the orchestrated schemes that Brad has been pushing regarding women since his split from Angie…Since the magical genius didn’t pan out…nor did the Charlize thang…It looks like Brad is trying to get in where he fits in…I think Jen took the gift…calculated the cost…let him come to the party after he asked about it…and paid him standard hostess dust…
Nothing to see here….
Jen is making it like it’s an achievement that he accepted the invitation. I’m so embarrassed for her.
What exactly has Jen done? They’ve never been photographed together since him and Angie broke up. She doesn’t talk about him or this divorce publicly. She invited him to her birthday. She’s 50 she can invite whoever she wants. She invited John Mayer too and I doubt she wants him back. I can never see these two getting back together anyway. I’m still hoping he’s with Charlize Theron.
Stewardess: as opposed to being embarrassed for him for showing up. Takes two to tango.
Olivia: she denied it. It’s a no from her.
I don’t think it is wrong to make friends with exes. They seem to passed it after being in other divorces etc…this stories are wishes and testes than actual imo.anyway they got me interested in these people again something abt he was seen at her party …I wasn’t even a pro ja…
That’s the thing tho. They want to make it seem like being friends w/ your exes is something new, something they invented. Lol. Angie’s friends w/ her exes and I guarantee Angie didn’t and doesn’t mind BP still being friends w/ JA.
Who is “they”.
@Pringer, LOL. You right.
His few stans on Just Jared are buying it. They’re a bit psycho and delusional tho. They buy everything he puts out. All the lies and every time he’s caught in a lie, they can’t ever explain it fullly so they just insult Angelina. W/ the same insults. That’s their go to. Lol.
I guess BP is haven’t a hard time w/ the ladies. Lol. First, Neri, Sienna, Charlize now JA. I seriously thought Charlize was gonna play his game w/ him but when she said nope I don’t know that dude, I laughed. Angie has shown him for who he is really. A deadbeat Dad who prob needs to go to rehab like Ben Affleck. He looks bad and everyone knows it even his stans really, they just keep lying about it.
He didn’t even stay at the party long, they’re saying now. So yeah, it was basically to get the tabloids the story. SMH at both him and her. JA really shouldn’t be this desperate anymore.
You seem to know a lot about these peoples’ feelings and motives. Do you know them personally?
Can you give it a rest. You’re personally sniping at every poster who’s celeb gossipping stuff/speculation you dont like on a celeb gossip board, all because you too are heavily invested and won’t admit it.
Look we all have our fav celebs, and we all have celebs we can’t stand. Those we’re neutral about, we usually aren’t in those threads, now are we?
Some of us do b*thy gossip for the wrong reasons and some of us do it for the right reasons. Many of us have been around forever and can recall how everything happened, how it went down and can easily speculate on personalities and motivations.
What’s tiring, is running into you overprotective stans of Jen or Brad or whomever and being called out of our name (I was called maya, cristin, etc yesterday) or being sniped and snarled at.
Just because someone here remembers a vogue article from 2009, and a subsequent orchestrated Oprah appearance- that is really no reason to gossip shame us.
What the hell else should we be doing hers besides gossiping, speculating, giving the 411 and snarking on celebs?
We sure AF shouldn’t be attacking each other. My picture isn’t on the header. I don’t have a contract with CAA. I don’t have a PR flack. So let us do what we do, stop trying to stifle CB site visitors from posting. It’s bs.
These hit-and-run one liners are funny AF. They are either some fanatical fans or PR flacks. I don’t respond to them cause they are not worth my time.
Now back to our regular program here. Let’s brace ourselves here. This is just the first wave and there are more to come. These two losers really think they are winning with revenge on Jolie but they only look more desperate and pathetic. Aniston for being so mature in getting back with an ex who not only spit on her while he ran into another woman’s arms but also embarrassed her by decreeing that marriage to her was dull as dust. Pitt who was so hell bent on revenge on his soon to be ex that he’d rather running back into arms of his boring wife than being alone with no wife and no kids. His behavior in the last 2 years really showed us what he’s truly., POS.
I can only imagine what Jolie’s reaction would be seeing this debacle. Probably raise her eyebrow thinking ‘really you dumbasses. Thank you, next”
I’ve actually only commented on a few posts by Maya and Sidewithkids, both of whom actually seem overly invested in these peoples’ lives to a scary extent and write things that beg to be challenged. What is bs is you calling me out for expressing my opinion.
@Carol: It’s ironic. You call me a fanatical fan or PR flack and in the very next breath go on to write like an actual fanatical fan or PR flack: “These two losers think they are winning with revenge on Jolie but they only look more desperate and pathetic…”
Maybe they just decided they wanted to reconnect and it had nothing to do with Jolie at all. Maybe they did it for PR? You jump to the most extreme conclusion.
Carol, do you think Jennifer is really that interested in revenge against Angelina? I think it’s mostly water under the bridge for Jennifer, at least I hope it is after 14 years.
@Lady D, Never underestimate the long memory of a scorned woman. Remember Aniston didn’t forgive her dear old mother for being mean to her until her mom was on her dead bed. She does hold grudges for a long time. Aniston could kill two birds with one stone here by hooking up with Pitt. Revenge to the woman who stole her husband in the first place and create some PR manipulation to her advantage. Who knows? I can only speculate from what I read and see and form my opinion on it. Whether it’s true or not, time will tell.
Jennifer’s mom was reportedly a toxic narcissist who belittled and shamed her. If true, she’s fortunate that Jennifer forgave her at all. Distancing herself from a toxic parent is not holding a grudge. Same for Angie with her father.
BP has never grown up.
I, for one, had a chuckle reading this. It reminded me of a simpler time when nobody had to worry about treason, collusion, children in cages.
Just THE love triangle of the 2000s.
Now, let’s not drag this out, People magazine. That’s unnecessary.
They will never be Burton and Taylor.
Wow, Mel, I have a really different recollection of the status of the world in the early 2000’s… I feel like the distraction of Brangelina was precisely why they were so popular.
Oh I have no doubt that everyone has their recollection of the time. Now let’s be clear, I didn’t mean to say that NOTHING else was happening at the time (Katrina, W Presidency and whatnot) but I feel like maybe gossip was a very separate entity at the time. Also, I will admit to my privilege that I was not aware of everything happening around me that did not touch me directly (beginning of my20s).
The awakening came not long after that to be honest, in huge parts through my job.
It’s also highly probable that people today who are the age I was back then are distracted by some gossip that I’m not even remotely aware of concerning people I would not be able to identify. Our priorities shift with age, too. As they should. Thanks for the unplanned and superficial but always welcome self-reflection moment! 😉
Well, whatever your view, you have to admit they made a beautiful couple. Totally california sunny beautiful.
YUP! I can only imagine how beautiful their children would have been
Brad has beautiful children with his second (soon to be ex) wife.
Yes, he does. I am just superficially commenting on their good looks
Malibu Barbie and Ken was how they always struck me lol
Actually, people always made on about him, and were floored he was with a plain jane -someone that wasn’t as beautiful as he was. He got cred for not being big on looks. It led to the false assumption he was a good guy who saw inner beauty. Just one more reason her diehards lost their minds when he got together with Angelina aka The Most Beautiful Woman in the World.
Or, perhaps her fans were just upset that he cheated on her like so many men cheat on their wives with other women.
I’m happy you’re engaging in conversation instead of trying to get certain posters to zip it by gossip shaming us, that said…
I thought you were a triangle expert that goes way back- you seem to know quite a bit about them in certain respects but now I see you’re dealing in this same old tired false ‘cheating’ narrative that isn’t true. I suspect you know this.
Here’s how it works: there are 3 people. All 3 people say no cheating happened. Now, if even 1 of the people deviate, you might have a point. But they haven’t. Now some ppl over the years have tried to say, well…blah blah blah emotional cheating. Nah. Can’t have your cake. We’re talking boinking. Doing the do. Clandestine schtupping. It never happened.
They were headed for a breakdown and break up 2 yrs before Pitt met Jolie. You can watch him squirm on Oprah if you like. Both he and she issued a mutual press release saying no third parties were the cause. Angelina (and I know she’s satan for you) has said herself she thought Brad was in a good marriage, and was surprised when they split.
So yea. US old timers are gonna need to call a tech on new ppl or disingenuous folks trying to revise history. We’ve had way too many message board threads where most agree with everyone involved (Brad, Jen and Angelina) that there was no cheating.
Yiu can’t go back and make up stuff. Sowwy.
In retrospect, he was stoned in so many of the pictures from back then. Lol
I think they both were
“Pitt split from his second wife Angelina Jolie, with whom he shares seven children, in 2016. (Their divorce is still ongoing.) ”
Seven children? LOL
I now have total and complete faith in this accurate – and not at all thrown together at the last minute – reporting.
But I’m liking this throwback gossip, especially the pictures: her outfits and hair aged a lot better than his, clearly there are reasons for sticking to little black dresses and a centre part. Please keep on covering the reverse triangle!
I like it too. It’s nice to break away from reality for a bit.
Some are breaking away more than others 😂
Internet kisses to whomever can find a picture where Brad is gazing at Jennifer in adoration. All of their pictures feature him looking hot and her clinging for dear life. They were never a good match. Same with him and Angie. Despite his progressive woke macho dude image I believe Brad is a basic b!!ch. He needs a woman like Matt Damons wife: looks good behind him.
Here you go. This one had a lot of pics, but the one with her in the white dress where they are holding hands and gazing into each others eyes fits the bill, I think. I think he did really love her. I also think she deserved better than him.
Meh, she looks like she’s madly in love with him, he just looks like he’s laughing at something or other.
Agree to disagree minx.
He’s laughing at something she said, not the same. And I had to scroll all the way down! Nope. Never adored her just liked her a whole lot. Poor Jen.
Not that I think it’s really an indicator of love, if someone is gazing adoringly at another in public- see basically every trash reality couple ever… And Brad and Angelina were very openly affectionate and they’re divorced, so…
But here. This took nothing at all to find. I literally googled their names and this was on the first page.
You win! 😙
Buy I do think body language is telling and although he and Angie are divorced out doesn’t mean he didn’t love and adore her…. he probably still does but has no choice in staying. I also think him gazing at an awards show is moreso for cameras. I remember their courtship well and he just never seemed in love life he was with Gwyn or Ang.
“ He has no one to answer to” – I guess he really did forgot he has children. The only important thing are his needs and wants he clearly doesn’t care that his teenagers kids are having to deal with this overwhelming press coverage. With every single one of his choices he shows us all what a awful parent he is.
Why do these two think they need each other?
As Astra moved to a October release. I think that film is going to bomb at the box office. Brad needs to put all his eggs in the Leo movie and gather publicity from other sources. Cue Jennifer. He needs someone to play the game with him and went back to her after failing with Sienna, Neri and Charlize. Trust. Brad and Jennifer will happen. Expect the speculation for the next year and half at least or until he dumps her from boredom …again.
Well, if he gives the impression that he is screwing around on her a second time, he’ll be hated forever. He might want to think this through.
Where did you read that about Ad Astra? If October is true, it sounds like they’re going to try to make an awards run. Gravity, First Man, and The Martian all had October releases.
Wasn’t it supposed to make an awards run this past year?
That clearly didn’t work. But appreciate another attempted spin on your part.
Huh? When have I tried to spin anything? I’m just stating the obvious. If it’s being released in May they expect it to be a blockbuster/popcorn flick, if it’s being released in October they’re going to try to market it for awards season. I never said it would get any awards or be any good.
All I want to do is gossip about A-list stars. Not everyone here has some intense stake in the lives and reputations of these people.
“Not everyone has some intense stake in the lives and reputations of these people”.
This made me do a double take because, and don’t take this personally as it’s by no means an attack but rather an observation and I could very well be mistaken, I just can’t recall ever having seen you outside pitt threads and then it’s always very much pro pitt. Not saying there’s anything wrong with that but sometimes they’re pro pitt and always positive even when it’s very reaching and sometimes the proof presented shows the truth is not in his favor.
It only stands out because you’ve refuted me a few times on the a couple subjects, which I by no means take offense or anything of the sort by, but some of them just felt like it was clearly invested on Pitt’s part.
Like I said, I prefer the A-list gossip, so no I don’t comment on threads about reality stars, Trump, etc. I prefer movie star stuff. I commented on the Chris Pratt post the other day and the Taylor Swift post, and I usually comment on Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck stuff 🤷🏼♀️
I’m not pro Brad Pitt, but I don’t hate him either. I guess not hating him is read by some people as being positive.
Booie, the same could be said about you as to Angie. Not saying there’s anything wrong with that. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
Kebbie: as I said I could easily have been mistaken based of some memories I have of our previous interactions which I may have remembered incorrectly. For which I apologize. Personally, I believe this movies gotten pushed back multiple times, it’s no longer fit the benefit of the film.
Snow: thanks for your input, I guess, I had said that there’s nothing wrong with it.
Delays are usually a bad sign when the studio orders a bunch of reshoots and/or reediting, or because test screenings went badly and word of mouth starts off on the wrong foot. Listen, the same thing happened with his other movie, Tree of Life, on numerous times and look how that turned out. We will see.
If it’s true that Ad Astra will open in October then it’s going to compete against the likes of Frozen 2, Cats, Star Wars 9, and Jumanji 3..uh Good luck then. Just be prepared for it to flop hard if it tries to compete against the Star War’s audiences that are into any kind of sci-fi with great visuals.
And I am so curious as to how he’s gonna to promote this movie where it’s talking about a relationship between a father and son. Hmm enquiring minds wanna know. Should he talk about his conscious uncoupling with his adopted sons or not? Fun times coming, y’all.
They probably chose October so it doesn’t have to compete with those November and December releases that you listed. But I haven’t read October for it anywhere before that comment, so we’ll see.
If it sticks with its May release date, it’ll be opening the same day as Aladdin. Though I’m guessing the previous week’s John Wick 3 would be its true competition. Probably not much overlap between Aladdin and Ad Astra audiences.
He is an idiot.
Someone said in yesterday’s post that Jen looks like Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie and now I can’t unsee it.
Going back to Jennifer would be the best PR move for both. It will boost their popularity back and wipe brad bad press and his alcoholic image.
I agree. Especially for him. Her team has already leaked that he begged Jennifer for forgiveness for the way he ended their marriage.
Brad had his best press with Jennifer and he could use her to reboot his image.
“BEST press with Jennifer?”
He was called dumb and shallow and so was Aniston. They were made fun of due to their matching highlights and constant mansion renovations. I think Weinstein and Miramax fueled a lot of that kind of press after he broke up with Goop.
Frustrating part of having been around a while is that you hear crazy talk and wrong ideas and have to refute them.
The whole reason why Pitt was perceived as bored with aniston, is bec both he and Aniston were perceived as boring do-nothings who spent their massive bank on themselves and renovated houses constantly. They were seen as shallow. They hung out with the Cox Arquettes. She wasnt friends with any of the Alisters that were at her party, and Goop called her “that tv woman.” Her with her hairdo and him with his highlights.
That’s why when he fell for Angelina, he couldn’t stop talking about her philanthropy, her field work in Africa, etc. He went on Diane Sawyer and was talking about orphans in Africa and ppl ridiculed Malibu ken and accused him of becoming Angelina – a couple yrs earlier when he and Aniston were on shaky ground pre meeting Angie, he told people that Jen essentially had no hobbies except her girlfriends and that he had nothing in common with his wife.
His “best press,” came with Angelina when they were both trying to make the world a better place through their philanthropy and foundations. Everyone wanted to be them and everyone was trying to emulate them.
He clearly was a fraud and a phoney trying to get more gravitas through Angelina…
Yet he’s very much like Jen ‘constant Cabo’ Aniston.
Yes, Lowrider, I agree. There is a difference between good press and bad press. When Brad and Jen got together, there was a ton of good press and “Golden Couple” coverage. People were happily surprised by movie star Brad hooking up with “TV Girl” Jen (thanks, Goop). It elevated both of them. The fact that it didn’t work out for them later doesn’t erase that.
“Boost their popularity” ??
Jen’s 50th birthday party was attended by 200 A-listers. Brad can still open a movie, any weekend.
The only one here needing an image reboot is your girl Angie.
I have to disagree that Angelina needs an image reboot. Either way, I highly doubt she cares.
@gail A party made by her publicist & agent & manager. When do you see Streisand or Keith Richards hanging with Jennifer Aniston? They are under the same management or agency. Thats how big parties work in the industry. It’s PR at its best. She had 20/30 closest friends, the rest is agency invites.
Allied didn’t exactly blow anyone’s socks off. Neither did By The Sea. I don’t think anyone can open any movie, any weekend anymore. Maybe back in the day, but with Rotten Tomatoes and social media, anyone can flop at the box office.
Snort so Chelsea Handler, John Mayer etc are A listers? A lister means someone who can become news by just sneezing and believe me, none on that part (other than 2-3 people) are A listers.
Every single person in that party are with CAA. Jennifer doesn’t seems to have friends only show business friends.
Brad’s last movie failed and he only has one movie with Leo and another being released later this year. Nothing else and he other movie just got cancelled.
Angelina, well has 3 -4 movies coming out this and next year. Plus she is working with real powerful people.
Does anyone know if the full guest list of the party has been made public? I’ve only seen mention of the celebrities that attended.
This is all very UNCOOL.
Alot of people are focusing on Jen here but I’m side-eyeing Brad. I think at worst Jen saw this as an opportunity to look like a gracious person in the eyes of the public (Note: John Mayer was invited too and he was just as douchy to her).
But I think you could read this as Brad trying to stick it to Angelina. “He’s single and has no one to answer to” I doubt that’s coming from Jen’s PR. That sounds like the same crap Brad’s PR people have been putting out about AJ since she dumped him. SMH.
I kinda feel bad for her. I know everyone’s preaching forgiveness and be friends with your ex, but she invited two men that were both assholes to her during their time together and said she was a bore after the fact. There comes a point where you can’t forgive people treating you that way repeatedly.
Regardless of whether or not people think her marriage to Justin was real, he’s the only one that seemed actually nice to her. And was the one not invited. Interesting choice of ‘friends’.
I don’t think a birthday invitation is a huge deal. But if she ever took him or John Mayer back? Egads. Talk about pathetic. As for Justin, I’m not sure what the deal is between them. Weren’t they living on different coasts most of their (alleged) marriage? They were an odd duo.
I personally think that JT was a business transaction and when that contract expired she’s done with him and vice versa. No need to pretend any longer.
Some of us have said Aniston has very low self-esteem due to a difficult childhood with a mean mother, hence her Oscar bait role in that movie Dumplin which she could relate to, So it’s no surprise that she invited both assholes back into her life as if to say she’s so mature, so kind and forgiving blah blah and that these men did love her and wished they could turn back the lock and not treated her so shitty. As IF. These men used her once again for their own gains and vice versa so off they go into the sunset. We are going to be treated to this for many years to come so let’s go get some popcorn and enjoy.
The birthday invitation isn’t a big deal but it wasn’t just one invite to someone who talked poorly about her but two. That’s the part where the pattern becomes noticeable.
Goop once referred to Jen as “that TV girl,” so that’s at least three invites. I’m assuming they all apologised to her privately. Pitt PR just leaked in past 24 hours that he apologised to Jen for the way he handled the PR for their breakup.
Lol “that TV girl” was such a glorious insult. Gwyneth would love to be on TV nowadays, my how things change!
Genuine question, how was Pitt an asshole to her? And please don’t say him cheating when all inc Aniston and joint friends and colleagues have repeatedly said no affair happened and ‘there is no bad guy’. Aniston spent 9 years speaking poorly about him and saying her marriage blowed. Did you forget that? She is no innocent victim. Given she harassed Pitt-Jolie for almost a decade, I don’t think Pitt was the asshole. In fact, lesser men would have called her out on her passive-aggressive bs long ago.
Maybe it is because I just turned 50 myself, but I have reached a magnanimous stage of my life where I can see celebrating where you are and having the people that contributed to making you who you are now at the event, particularly given that the events were so long ago and there is likely a lot of emotional distance from them.
The reason I am who I am (as awesome as that is :)) is because of the sum of my experiences – good and bad. And to be honest, I grew the most from the relationships that ended badly. But at this stage of my life, I don’t harbour resentment about the conduct that led to the break-ups, I value the experience and am so glad I learned what I did. And I recognize that as much as I am not the same person I was, they aren’t either, so I would have no problem including people who had a big impact on me (even if at the time it felt like a negative one) at a celebration of this milestone.
Just my 2 cents.
Congratulations on turning 50! With experience comes wisdom.
I think Angelina is beside herself on this…it is alright for him to do whatever he wants in this matter at this point. Dont bring the kids here it’s about her not about the kids but she probably not know the difference anylonger..
I think the divorce needs to be finalized and they need be disassociated as much as possible imo
I agree with someone who said b&j look sunny true they actually do. They look the couple you will accept the warmth is cute.
That doesn’t mean he and Angelina weren’t good looking.
Angelina is not beside herself. She dumped him & hasn’t looked back. She filed for divorce. She filed for bifurcation to hurry the divorce. She’s been looking better & healthier than ever. Smiling more than she has in a long time. Does that sound like someone still pining for him & all upset about this? I dont think so!!! Actions speak louder than words & her actions couldn’t be any clearer.
Exactly- Angelina filed for divorce and even submitted the financial details.
Brad is the one who requested the divorce to be postponed 3 times. And he still hasn’t submitted his financials.
This is incorrect as to the request for bifurcation. Brad (through his attorney) requested a bifurcation. Instead of getting back to him, Angie filed a document saying she intended to file to bifurcate. Neither one of them actually filed a motion to bifurcate the divorce. The judge in the case did bifurcate custody, which essentially leaves the divorce as a separate matter. This is all detailed in court filings.
There is no evidence that Brad requested a postponement of the divorce.
@MS and Maya,
Listen, the only time you will ever see or hear the words Pitt + bifurcation is from bottom feeder InTouch. They were the only ones that wrote about it. No other tabs. Of course we all know how reliable they are, not.
When team Pitt leaked about Jolie’s parental alienation charges last year, she’s pretty upset and decided to file about his not paying meaningful child support and that she intended to file for bifurcation of their marriage so that it would provide closure to the marriage and both could then move on to become devoted co-parents to the kids.
Pitt had his pit bull lawyer leaked to People and other major outlets slamming her for trying to manipulate the media coverage. Spiegel also said that he told Laura Wasser, Jolie’s former lawyer, about Pitt’s request to bifurcate the marriage and team Jolie supposedly told him to wait for a week to proceed. He accused Jolie of filing it a day later after Pitt’s request to create the impression that she, not Pitt, wanted to bifurcate.
Now, in the real world where you and I live, if one wants to bifurcate the divorce then the person go and file it. You do not need your spouse’s permission. The court will ask you why and if your spouse doesn’t oppose then it’s a none issue and of you go.
Pitt is the one that kept asking for extensions, the latest was last year to the end of this year. So no matter what he and his team are saying, court papers don’t lie. Everything else is hearsay. They are just trying to save Pitt’s face which time after time, he is being exposed for being a liar. ‘Nuff said on this issue.
Carol: I know its tempting, but you shouldn’t be relying on tabloids for your information about the divorce. In the legal world, with which I am familiar, it is customary for a party to request an agreed bifurcation instead of unilaterally filing for one, thereby surprising and upsetting the other party. Pitt’s lawyer stated what happened in a court document of public record. Lawyers don’t lie in court filings unless they want to be disbarred and put in contempt of court. The only way you can believe that Angie wanted to file first is if you think Pitt’s lawyer lied in filed documents.
Both Brad and Angie filed for extensions of the judge’s appointment. Those were agreed, by stipulation, which means that both parties agreed to extend the judge.
Alrighty, I will respond to your post since it has holes that I can drive a car through it, lol.
First of, it may be customary to request an agreed bifurcation but it’s not mandatory. I don’t believe for one second that Pitt was worried about upsetting Jolie if he wanted to bifurcate first. If you believe that I have a bridge to sell you. In many states, all one needs to bifurcate their divorce is an agreement between both parties before the court grants one. It is possible to get an exception to this rule if the party requesting it shows good legal cause for it, and the court agrees that the interests of the other party would not be jeopardized by the action.
All Pitt’s lawyer said (on the record) that were printed in all the news networks that got a copy of the filing, that they had discussed the bifurcation process with team Jolie. There was no mention that he had filed the motion first. If they did, you betcha they would have leaked it to the whole world. It’s a case of he said she said. You yourself even said you don’t believe neither actually filed the motion so there you go.
Snow so it is wrong to use tabloids as reference in the divorce, but it’s ok to use them as gospel that an affair that everyone inc Aniston herself denies happened, happened? Make up your mind.
I wanted to make some corrections on my above post. I misspoke. This is not a case of he said/she said regarding the bifurcation issue.
The real issue here is not who intend to file bifurcation first but who has serious intentions to do it. We all know that actions speak louder than words. Jolie, for her part. had filed her preliminary Declaration of Disclosure to Pitt’s lawyer late last year. This financial disclosure is the first part of bifurcation process. After this is done Jolie can move forward to request the bifurcation. I betcha that the real reason Jolie wanted to bifurcate the divorce is that it’s going on for too long (2 1/2 years and counting) and that Pitt was trying to drag out the settlement agreement as a form of emotional blackmail, knowing that Joile can’t get on with her life until the marriage is finalized. As for Pitt, I haven’t seen or read any such filing on his part. All talk and no action eh. Pitt wanted to have the last work on bifurcation issue by insisting that he, not Jolie, that wanted to bifurcate first. Why? Could it be that he didn’t want to be seen as the one dragging his feet with the divorce? That he’s hoping she would take him back, so he could repair his tarnished reputation? Hmm. It’s anyone’s guess to his end game.
As for his multiple requests for the extension of the private judge to preside over their divorce, one can only guess the reasons for it. He wanted to protect his reputation and image so things won’t get leaked unless he wanted to for his own gains, i.e last year’s child visitation schedules etc..Jolie on her part probably didn’t care one way or the other so she agreed with the extensions. Her end game is to get this divorce and child custody over and done with.
He asked for bifurcation first, then she filed.
He’s the one holding up the divorce and asked for an extension. She’s wants it all over!!!
Not a single evidence he asked first while Angelina actually legally filed.
Either way, she has submitted her details while he hasn’t and tried to postpone 3 times in 6 months.
Brad (through his attorney) requested that Angie agree to bifurcate the divorce. Her lawyer said they would get back to him on the request. Instead, Angie’s lawyer filed a document indicating that she intended to file a motion to bifurcate (the same one that claimed he hadn’t paid meaningful child support, I believe.) This was all detailed in filed court documents.
I don’t believe either actually filed a motion. However, the judge in the case entered an order bifurcating custody. Seems like this gets to the same result.
Seven kids? Looks like Kaiser (I think it was?) was right about the mysterious extra son. What was his name again? I can’t for the life of me remember.
Once again, thank you ladies. This was even better than yesterday’s.
Brad Pitt’s true colours. Famewhore with a capital F. I wonder how his family view this. Do they even get to see the grandkids since his massive f-up? Poor grandma and grnnpa, also the aunts and uncles. He must pay them well to keep their distance. Poor kids to see their dad stoop so low.
I am sorry but does anyone else think that maybe Jen should say please donate to x charity instead of buying me a gift?
