Brad Pitt wants us to know that he’s single & he friendzoned Jennifer Aniston

Brad Pitt poses in the press room of the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Golden Globes, at Hotel Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, USA, on 05 January 2020. | usage worldwide

It’s weird how “sources” keep chatting with TMZ about Brad Pitt, huh? Yesterday, we discussed the TMZ story about why Brad did not thank his six children or his family beyond his parents. TMZ’s sources claimed that Brad made a conscious choice to avoid speaking about his kids publicly, unlike Angelina… for reasons! And yet, Brad always lets us know when he gets to see the kids, which surely affects their sense of privacy too? Anyway, the conversation about Brad’s relationship with his children (strained, at best) won’t get him any Oscar votes. Maybe Brad realizes that as long as he’s being mentioned in the same breath as Jennifer Aniston, THAT will help his Oscar campaign? Stranger things have happened. That being said, those pesky sources went to TMZ to say that Brad and Jennifer are just friendly and nothing more.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston being in the same room will get anyone talking about a possible reunion, but their most recent run-in will leave Brennifer shippers disappointed.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ … Brad and Jen didn’t get the chance to chat much during Sunday night’s Golden Globes show and the goings-on afterward. We’re told they did exchange greetings and pleasantries at the after-party they both attended, but that’s about it.

Fact is, the two Hollywood heavyweights have a lot of mutual friends in the biz — and they do cross paths from time-to-time because of that, especially during big parties like this. That said, we’re told they do NOT hang out outside of these rare settings … and there’s simply nothing romantic going on between them … despite Jen’s fixed gaze during Brad’s acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor. It’s been made clear … Brad’s single.

Long story short, what’s past is past … and, at least for now, there’s no sign of these two coming together again. And, as Brad humorously pointed out, it looks like they went out of their way not to stand next to each other to avoid an unnecessary rumor mill.

[From TMZ]

I… have a theory, newly formed. This reminds me a bit of all of those stories Brad’s team pushed a few years back, especially about the Neri Oxman stuff. When you go back and read the obvious leaks from his camp to People Magazine and Page Six, it’s often this kind of thing – “they’re just friends” and “he admires her” and “maybe she’s more into him than he is with her.” There’s a vibe of wanting to push an image of Desirable Brad, Heartbreaker Brad, the guy whose exes still obsess over. I feel like that’s how Team Pitt wants to position Jennifer Aniston. “Look, he’s just being a nice, friendly guy, but he wants everyone to know that NOTHING is happening, poor Jen got friendzoned, like Angelina is obsessed with him too, because he’s so desirable and Oscar-worthy.”

Here are some pics of hobo-chic Brad in New York this week:

    I think Jennifer is completely over him and has been for a long time. And what on earth does he have on his feet in those NY pics?

    • Thanks says:

      If she is not careful he’ll throw her under the bus again and she’ll be poor pathetic Jen again. The public will take the handsome, corn fed blue eyed Mid-western white boy’s side again.

    • Toniko says:

      >>>>And what on earth does he have on his feet in those NY pics?

      That’s his old lift shoes.

    • anny says:

      I really think all these talk about him and Aniston started because she initiated being close with him, first by inviting him to her bday party last Feb, she knows he will attend because he is separated from Angie and of course she invited him again for her Christmas party. Without these invitations and him attending all these getting back together rumors wont be that loud.
      I think Jennifer wants him and is chasing him, but i dont think Brad is that interested. He has a lot more issues to sort out than have a lovelife now.

      • roseplot says:

        I do not think Aniston is chasing this guy. He wants the world to think that she is. Like the post above says he wants to be seen as Mr. Desirable. I honestly think he gets off on it. I truly believe she is fine where she is at in her life and doesn’t want the to deal with the baggage again he seems to carry into every relationship.

      • Hmm says:

        That was CAA and their agents using Aniston as a distraction from his abusive behavior with Angelina
        ‘S children

      • Christina says:

        @Hmm, BINGO.

        He needs new people, but they are right: it worked.

    • kerwood says:

      Anniston might be over HIM, but she’s not over the ATTENTION.

      • Elle says:

        I think she just wants to feel she is the bigger person, and not bitter about her exes, like how she invited Justin to her thanksgiving get together.

    • Jen d. says:

      Agreed. I think she probably got over him after a bit very early on into this whole narrative, but I do think it served her well to play into it a bit. I just don’t think it serves her very well now, but when you spend years on it then it’s hard to turn off.

      I think it’s kind of funny how much he is trying to revive it. Ugh, he’s bad at this. I don’t think AJ was the master media manipulator some play her out to be, but I think she was pretty good at it. Without her he’s doing a super bad job. Like, he keeps failing at all these PR foils (Neri, Charlize, etc).

      I really hope Aniston’s camp comes out with something like, “Brad Pitt keeps asking for invites to her parties, and Jen feels sorry for him, so she invites him, but it’s always super awkward for everyone and now Jen is telling her friends not to tell Brad about the parties. ” It’ll never happen, but it would be really funny. Why not flip things and do the “poor, pathetic lovesick Brad Pitt” storyline?

    • Raina says:

      I thought he left the house in slippers.

    • amayson1977 says:

      Lady-boner killers. Those shoes should be burned. That whole outfit is awful and the shoes are the awful cherry on the awful sundae.

  2. Thanks says:

    So much for not campaigning. Happy 15th birthday Zahara.

  3. Michelle says:

    So nice of him to miss his daughter’s 15th birthday. But guess he wouldn’t want to change things now. His award campaign is far more important.

    • Me Again says:

      He wants to respect her privacy, dang it! Isn’t that the excuse he used when he didn’t mention his kids in his GG acceptance speech.

      He and his Ugg slippers are so gross.

    • Peg says:

      Happy birthday Zahara!
      One of my favorite pictures of Zahara, is when she was first adopted, Brad holding her with a scarf on her head and a baby bottle in his back pocket.
      She was so small for her age but look at her now

      • kerwood says:

        I remember that picture. I’ve always said that’s the sexiest picture of Pitt that I’ve ever seen. What a shame that his addictions led him to lose it all and now his thirst for accolades and attention is stronger than his need to be a good dad.

        If Pitt spent as much time rebuilding his relationship with his children as he did putting together that joke of an outfit, he’d be better off.

      • Lady D says:

        He looked so happy in that picture. It’s my favourite picture of him. I think it’s pretty much the best he’s ever looked (for me).

  4. Jegede says:

    Laughable.🙄

    Pitt’s the one who keeps name checking Aniston on TV, & publications.🤣🤣

    • whatWHAT? says:

      RIGHT?!

      “despite Jen’s fixed gaze”…FFS, HE WAS MAKING A SPEECH! I’d bet she wasn’t the only one whose “gaze” was “fixed” on him while he spoke.

      I take back what I said yesterday. I now agree that he or, more likely, his publicist, is blabbing to TMZ.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yup. That’s what I’ve been saying all along. His team tried the idea of Neri, that was nothing, and then Charlize put a stop to the rumors about her immediately. Ever since he got the invite (along with half the town) to Jen’s party, those rumors started, and it’s always a Brad “source” commenting on them. I also don’t think it’s a coincidence that he’s hanging around while she’s have a career high right now too.

      • Sidewithkids says:

        @Lucy2, Correct. I’ve been saying the same thing. This dude constantly runs to the tabloids, his fav are US Weekly, Page Six and TMZ. I noticed this during the beginning of the Angie break-up. Notice how he always comes out looking great and it’s always “sources” saying something, no real name ever. Everytime Angie has something to say it was through her lawyer or her assistant who was named. That’s how you know it was real. Dude is liar and a poser, funny thing now is he’s telling on himself b/c he can’t even keep up w/ his own lies.

        JA looks bad b/c she just give into his mess.

      • lucy2 says:

        I haven’t seen her say anything about all this.

      • Sidewithkids says:

        I mean when she had stuff to say about the divorce in the beginning. Her stuff was real b/c she used real sources while he continues to lie about stuff.

        She has nothing to say about this nonesense b/c she’s done w/ these folks. She’s moved on. Glad for her.

  5. Jan says:

    He never did it for me. Don’t like the turning into latest GF thing. But post Ang he’s extra lame.

  6. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Why is this happening? Why is this a conversation? I don’t get it. If he is actually campaigning, why talk about exes? Are we about to hear how he threatened Weinstein when he was but a wee lad playing with Paltrow and her burgeoning instrument that is she?

  7. megan says:

    I know everyone thinks he’s hot but I think he is starting to look like William H Macy

  8. L says:

    That is a horrible picture of him. He bought an entire new face

  9. Louise177 says:

    Tabloids are funny. A week ago they practically had him engaged to that actress from Arrested Development.

  10. Brianna says:

    Horrible deadbeat father misses another milestone birthday of his kids. Instead her away thrusting after an Oscar in New York City.
    Sorry Zahara your daddy has no time for you doesn’t care if you turbed 15, as he’s is a private man respecting your privacy.

  11. joanne says:

    When I look at his face, I think of silly putty. He just looks wrong.

  12. JoJo says:

    This is nothing new Brad would go on trips to car races,art shows,etc.and miss his kid’s birthdays when he and AJ were together.

    Oh yeah he is a jerk regarding his comment about Jen too.

  13. Anna says:

    Pathetic.

  14. Kitefly says:

    Looks like after using Leo D Caprio as a leg up, now he’s after Bradley Cooper, he was at his house last night with a script. After all the movies in his own name have flopped, I guess he knows he has better chances in his office sucess is by piggy backing famous actors who can carry movies in their own name…….
    Another missed Birthday for his kid, last year for Shiloh birthday he was in Italy with his artist family and now on Zahara birthday he is with his Hollywood family.
    At least we know where his loyalty lays. But TMZ and other enablers will never report that would they. Gets away with it, yet again.

  15. Hmmm says:

    His face and hair look so bad lol karma face. No one wants him back it’s just caa using that narrative as a distraction from the mother of his children ghosting him and the kids being abused by him

  16. RoyalBlue says:

    But we don’t know if he called or saw Zahara for her birthday. I think he does not comment on his kids and that’s fine actually because most people don’t shout out their kids birthdays. I never do on FB unlike some of my friends.

    I wish he wouldn’t play silly guessing games about who he is dating Fortunately it seems like women know to run from him.

  17. kerwood says:

    What the fuck is he wearing?

  18. Emily says:

    His style is terrible. Usually he is all matchy-matchy with his partners, so without a girlfriend he dresses like … this.

  19. Kate says:

    Ugh “Jen’s fixed gaze”. As if she doesn’t know everyone will be studiously observing her reaction to his speech and making sure she doesn’t make any faces or give people any reason to think she’s shading or lusting after him. But no matter, even just looking respectfully at him means SHE WANT THAT BACK. So many eyerolls.

    • Jen d. says:

      Right? If she was looking away there would be huge stories about how she was shading him after he rejected her or something.

    • anny says:

      Actually there is a photo of Jennifer looking at him while QT was accepting them award for Best musical/comedy best picture. Brad and Led did not go up the stage, Brad was sitting in their table looking at QT on stage. Everyone on Jennifer’s table were looking at the stage also except her, she was looking at Brad or Brad’s table. Its weird.

  20. MJo says:

    I can’t stand how much this man has gotten away with. No one says a word that this guy had to be monitored to be around his kids. He let Jennifer and Angelina get bashed and acted like an innocent victim. If you are a fan of Jennifer Aniston why would you ever want them back together? He treated her like crap and crapped all over their brief marriage. I hate that Jennifer is still playing these games and get this straight, she knows exactly what will happen when she invites him to anything. SHE KNOWS! And he will throw her under the bus in a heartbeat if he helps him in any way shape or form. I stopped buying the aw shucks routine a long time ago!

    • Hmmm says:

      Looks like that’s coming to an end which probably why he’s using Aniston again even if it is to throw her under the bus. The internet basically came for his trump like hair when he didn’t mention his kids like Tom hanks did. It’s a normal thing to thank your kids at award shows 😂 but he’s a narcissistic fool and too selfish. He didn’t thank them back when he won the underserving Oscar he got either. It was so rude.

      And to claim he’s protecting their privacy lol when did that happen? Oh yeah when he abused them on the plane and they all basically hate him. What a joke. He doesn’t and has never had a close bond with them- that’s why it’s so easy for all parties to just live separate lives

    • Aubrey. says:

      This comment is Truth!
      He has been throwing both Angie and Jen under the bus for years.
      He is the one running to the press leaking stories about how angie and Jen want him back so bad.
      No one wants your deadbeat ass brad.
      Both women can do so much better.
      Thank God angie dumped him.

  21. Grant says:

    He was so BLAH in OUATIH that, frankly, I’m surprised he won the GG and is the frontrunner for the Oscar. His best years (and performances) are behind him. Meanwhile, Jennifer is giving us the performance of her career on The Morning Show. I hope that she’s starting to realize that she doesn’t need to hitch her wagon to Pitt, Angie, tabloids, etc. in order to stay relevant in Hollywood; her brilliant work on TMS shows that she has more than enough talent to do so on her own…

    Now give me that Jennifer Aniston/Angelina Jolie buddy comedy, LOL!

    • Hmmm says:

      Pretty sure Angie is tired of being connected in anyway with these people and Pitt probably knows it which is another reason he’s using Aniston. His “she forgave me” lame article in usweekly was def a dig at Angie and her kids. Angie is not playing the we’re friends game with him 🤷🏾‍♀️ Plus she probably has very little contact with pity and like a typical narcissist he wants her attention.

      Why doesn’t he have a real girlfriend yet? All of the rumored women have been fake but his fans say he moves on so fast and never goes backwards. Seems like that’s exactly what he’s done. He’s gone back to being the same person he was pre Angie full on with hanging out with the mean girl crowd. 😂😂😂 Gave up his kids and humanitarian work for this b.s fakeness but doesn’t seem happy at all. Meanwhile Angie is finding herself again and looks thrilled just to be around her kids

    • Call_me_Al says:

      I thought he was good and pretty funny as the Stunt Man/Friend because it was the perfect role for him. The shirtless scene and the fighting Bruce Lee scene were gratuitous, but that’s Quentin.
      Leo was absurdly good in his role because he’s an exceptional actor who really GOES THERE. He’s so vulnerable and funny in his nuanced way, and I truly enjoy watching him in anything he is in.

  22. Earth says:

    Lifts for sure. What a strange little man. His face DOES look like silly putty. Not good at all. Angie was smart to ditch him. She can do so much better. So can Jen. Both gorgeous women!

  23. Sidewithkids says:

    LOL. What is he wearing???? This man is completely lost and no one is helping him. His team/CAA is out here making him look like a clown. Also, I know someone joked that it looked like his face was melting but in that first pic, it kinda does.

  24. Sidewithkids says:

    Happy Birthday Zahara. Hope she has a great one.

  25. JustMe says:

    I wish Jen and Angie would make a movie together and shut this shite down once and for all

  26. Ana says:

    They were a couple before, he was blind( and may be he still is ) with AJ. Aniston should know what she is doing, he does not love her at all after leaving her for AJ. To me he still loves AJ. Time has the answer.
