Jennifer Aniston & Brad Pitt don’t want to milk the ‘friendly exes’ dynamic too much


For basically the past year, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have been dancing around each other, begging us to pay attention to their quaint tabloid drama. I’ve made it clear that I’m personally quite disgusted with their little games, but clearly, other people feel differently. For me, the problem is two-fold. On one side, if you believed the mountain of press Aniston carefully cultivated about herself from 2005-2012-ish, Brad Pitt was insensitive and cruel and he’s a fool for dumping America’s Sweetheart. That was her whole brand: the wronged ex-wife, throwing herself a pity party. And now 15 years later, all is forgiven and it’s all water under the bridge? Is that Aniston’s new brand?

The other side is that Brad is so obviously USING her. Clearly, I’m not an Aniston super-fan, but I just don’t understand why she’d agree to be used like this to help Brad’s image in the wake of a buffet of bad headlines for him, or to help his image when he’s campaigning for an Oscar. Or is it all a “gloat” on her part – that she played the long game, she waited more than a decade for his “dalliance” with Angelina Jolie to end, and now she “won” the grand prize of… having Brad flirt with her in a charity script reading?? When just one month ago, he was rolling out a 27-year-old Instamodel as his married girlfriend? This is all just a mess. But whatever, would you like to hear more about how Aniston and Pitt are playing this?

Focusing on the positive. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt “were a little nervous going into” the Fast Times at Ridgemont High table read on Thursday, September 17, a source exclusively reveals in the latest issue of Us Weekly. Pitt, 56, and Aniston, 51, who played roles originated by Judge Reinhold and Phoebe Cates in the 1982 film, “both enjoyed themselves” during the special, as it all went off without a hitch. The virtual table read, hosted by Dane Cook, raised money for two different charities, Sean Penn’s emergency relief organization, CORE, and the REFORM Alliance, a nonprofit is centered around criminal justice reform.

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star playfully said hello to the Friends alum at the top of the video, referring to her as “Aniston.” She quickly responded with, “Hi, Pitt,” before later calling him “honey,” sending fans into a frenzy on social media. Although body language expert Tonya Reiman says that Aniston appears to have some “hidden thoughts” in the video, the insider tells Us the exes have a genuine friendship these days.

“It used to bug them how everyone pulls for them to get back together, but now they laugh it off,” the source says of the pair. “The truth is they have each other’s backs. They constantly bounce ideas off each other and share happy news when they have it. They have such a natural, easy energy together.”

In fact, the former couple hope to work together again when the time is right. “They don’t want to milk this ‘friendly exes’ dynamic they’ve got going on too much,” the insider adds. “They’re both very mindful of that.”

[From Us Weekly]

“They don’t want to milk this ‘friendly exes’ dynamic they’ve got going on too much. They’re both very mindful of that.” Translation: whenever Brad needs to change the subject from a damaging story, he arranges some comforting friendly-ex bulls–t with Jennifer, and she goes along with it, for reasons. I guess that’s the admission that it is all just a game to them, a little PR strategy. Remember in February of this year, there was that story of how Brad and Jen think it’s “hysterical” that their fans want them to get back together? I wonder if they’re still laughing about it.

    Too late.

  2. My3cents says:

    Ha ha ha, I’m laughing my head off.
    That’s the funniest performance either of them has given in years. They should both receive the Dairy association lifetime achievement award.

    • Bibi says:

      Performance was ridiculous.
      First of all I think kinda everybody is over brad and jennifer aniston. They can stop the milking of this fake maybe yes maybe no relationship. The diehard fans are like 45, 50 year old+ so who would really care seriously? I find it very pretentious for them to be thinking people still would have the time to think about them going back together. Get another hobby – this isnt really making news anymore, i am so embarrassed for them both.

  3. Grace says:

    The both are disgusting and their fans are pathetic fools.

  4. Sierra says:

    Lol thanks for the laugh 😂

    Both are super CAA clients and will do anything the agency tells them. Jennifer really should think hard about this because it is not helping her image.

    Brad is throwing anything at the media to stop them from reporting on MIR lawsuit and the fact that he is still under supervised visits with his children. There is a trauma specialist for abused children who is going to speak in the divorce trial. The abuse Brad did to Angelina & children will come out fully soon.

  5. Noki says:

    Well Jen is not doing herself any favours,she really doesnt need to entertain him,i cant picture Gwyneth or Juliette Lewis at any point using their past with him for any coverage.

  6. LaurenMichelle says:

    I love the pic of Jen in the strapless white dress. Gosh, they were such a beautiful couple. The Angelina years & addiction really aged Brad. He said he was bored with Jen, and ran off with Angie to start a beautiful family.
    Now he’s doing the friendly exes tour with Jen to seem more human & likable, despite hooking up with a young married woman. It’s bizarre.
    Thank God the children have Angie…Brad seems so selfish & bores easily. Guess he got bored of fatherhood too.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      as noted by a LOT of people, Pitt “assumes the identity” of most women he dates.

      I think he fell for Jolie (who wouldn’t?) not only because of her physical beauty but also because of her charitable acts and thought “THIS is what I could be!” but, as you noted, he got bored of playing the “philanthropist/charitable guy/super dad” because he wasn’t ever really those things. he wanted to be those things so he could live happily ever after with Jolie but his true nature showed itself. the addictions, the anger, the abuse…thank goodness Jolie left him and yes, thank goodness those kids have a parent who truly looks after their best interest.

  7. Caitlin says:

    They both seem pathetic at this stage. He is using her, and she is either oblivious or doesn’t care.

  8. Merricat says:

    I think Jennifer doesn’t harbor tender feelings for Brad, so it amuses her to do these things as a “get your goat” move against Angelina. Brad she can forgive, but I’ll bet she nurses a huge grudge against AJ.

    • Jodi says:

      THIS. but honestly, i don’t know why she’d harbor these grudges against Angelina when she did he same thing to Heidi Bivens with Justin Theroux. at this point, she should be holding Brad accountable for what happened in their marriage because she’s not against stealing someone’s partner for herself when it suits her.

      • kerwood says:

        Jen gets away with it because there are so many bland, boring women who identify with her. Seeing Brad with Jennifer gave them all hope that ‘someday their prince would come’. It’s the same thing with Meghan. The fact that their heroine is a ‘man-stealer’ too is ignored. Beside Theroux is talented, but he ain’t exactly the stuff that dreams are made of.

    • EliseM says:

      I wonder what kind of grudge Heidi Bivens has against Jennifer. Do you ever wonder how Jen would feel if Heidi had the means to call up an ex, in front of millions of people, just to get her goat. She was 14 years into her relationship with Justin when Jen broke it up. We bashed the crap out of Angelina for “breaking” up Jen and Brad. However, Jen breaks up Justin and Heidi and skates. I think this whole thing, and their antics, is high school bulls….t.

    • kerwood says:

      Does anybody REALLY think that Angelina is sobbing into her pillow about Jen and Brad? Angelina SAVED Brad from a life of mediocrity. A life that he broke land speed records to get away from. And let’s not forget that HE’S the one that was married to ‘poor Jen’. Angelina barely knew the woman. We have had decades of ‘Brad and Jen’. When will this sad, boring saga end?

      Brad isn’t single because he left Angelina. Brad is single because he assaulted his son and Angelina kicked his ass out. Now he can’t even see his own children without supervision. How pathetic do you have to be to be happy about ‘winning’ this guy back?

      • Katya says:

        Agree with everything you said!! I mean yes, some exes are friendly but they don’t go out of their way to make it seem like there’s more to it, see Gwyneth and her first husband Chris. . I think it’s kind of mean to not only tease their fans with the getting back together stories but to laugh at them behind closed door, that’s sick!

        Some here are saying that people are just overreacted but I don’t think so. There have been plenty of occasions in the past decade where they were at the same award shows but there was never any report of any interaction between them even with a simple hello. But the minute Brad was dumped and suddenly they are very friendly with each other doing things together as if there was never any hard feelings between them. I hope Angelina’s divorce is coming to its conclusion soon so she can live in peace and is able to move out of the country so these two will not use her as a sounding board.

      • Red Hoodie says:

        “Angelina SAVED Brad from a life of mediocrity”

        His image has been tarnished in the aftermath of the divorce now but he gave her “gravitas” as a credible A-lister. They were both good for each other image wise for a while. Then it all came crashing down.

        Today, with her track record, to me Jolie has very little credibility when it comes to humanitarianism.
        She endorses – actually vocally promotes – humanitarian wars, military intervention and regime changes under the guise of humanitarianism (these all lead to refugee crises, ironically), and harsh economic sanctions that end up punishing the most disadvantaged. She seems to also claim the military intervention under the Responsibility to Protect doctrine is some kind of concrete international law. It’s not; it’s highly controversial. She is not educated and she is not informed, and she has no business advocating for refugees.

      • Katya says:

        *raise hand* Do you work for UNHRC? And if you haven’t spent at least 15 years advocating for the refugees like Angelina did then you have no business telling her what to do even if it’s your own personal opinion which doesn’t count squat. Please take a seat. I really detest people for telling others what to do when they haven’t even done 1/4 of what some are doing. All talk and nothing else.

      • Meg says:

        @red hoodie
        Really? She has no credibility? Woah thats just so very far from the truth
        @katya yep!

      • Red Hoodie says:

        @Meg She has no head for complexity; everything is black and white to her. And that’s how she’s ended up as the pretty, HW face of aggressive global hawkism, a spot a self-proclaimed humanitarian has no place occupying. NATO and CoFR? She is clueless. Foreign policy and diplomacy (these are way dirtier than the domestic politics she seems to think she’s above) are tricky, grey areas dominated by the self-interest of the most militarily and economically powerful nations, areas that are typically antagonist to humanitarian goals. e.g., “Oh, we’re intervening for humanitarian reasons” – when it’s really about securing increasingly scarce natural resources and exerting preemptive geopolitical power through things like bases and installing sympathetic governments.

        The problem is she is instinctively drawn to a heroic approach to everything when relatively passive, receptive, and restrained policies are usually those that achieve the most humanitarian, self-sufficient, and nation-building and nation-supporting outcomes for the Global South.

        She’s well known for being cynical about HW and the industry that’s made her rich and famous, and it’s definitely time for her to turn that cynical eye to what powerful countries REALLY DO ACHIEVE when they meddle overseas.

  9. Lovesitinnm says:

    Not to mention the underlying evil woman message! They couldn’t have been fine the past decade plus? But now that evil Jolie is out of the picture they finally can.
    Jen is terrible for helping to push that narrative especially since the Jolie Pitt breakup included a domestic incident with a minor. I expect it from Brad at this point. But Seriously, Jen? Yuck.

    • Myra says:

      You’re right about the underlying message it sends and it also tracks with how the media used to portray the situation over the past decade. ‘He was the bewitched sap that was stolen from his true love by the evil temptress’. Unsurprisingly, this is how the media is portraying the Harry and Meghan situation. ‘Harry has been bewitched and stolen from his family by the manipulating Meghan’.

  10. Amy Bee says:

    Both are using each other, Brad wants get over the drunk/abusive father and husband image and Jennifer wants to be seen as the bigger person. I don’t get the excitement from fans about this “friendship”. Everybody just needs to move on.

  11. Alia says:

    Sorry but this woman ,always likes to be the center of attention.

    • Lady D says:

      Practically a prerequisite for an actor or actress, no?

      • kerwood says:

        There are lots of actors and actresses who live practically anonymous lives. But when you’re famous for a mediocre tv show, icing your nipples before auditions and getting dumped, you have to try harder.

  12. Lamontagne says:

    Their marriage ended 15 years ago, that’s a whole human being. 15 years, and yet the media are acting like it happened yesterday and they’re going to get back together soon. I don’t understand the hangup about this? What is it that makes them so special?

    • Observer says:

      After Tom & Nicole, they were the “IT” couple for a generation. They were that first generation of star/power couple. Also their breakup was equally infamous.

      Celebrity culture has changed a lot in the past decade but most of the tabloid media/magazines were in their hay day when Brad & Jen were together. So it does not surprise me that the obsession with those two remains.

      • Red Hoodie says:

        Yes, I think these two are only able to extract good PR from it simply because people think of them as the golden couple. Nothing to do with Angelina purportedly stealing him away and the minivan feeling insulted; they were just really loved because Aniston had that common touch. And sorry, poster upthread, people didn’t look up to them because she’s “plain” and he’s homecoming king and they’re plain themselves and they want that fantasy of winning the handsome guy. She was seen as very physically attractive and desirable but someone you could trust and be friends with – women and men simply LIKED her. That’s what gave them the golden-couple sheen. GoopPitt never had it. Jolie was too divisive even with her humanitarian stuff and so Brange, though seen as elite power couple for a few years, never had the unanimous approval of Aniston-Pitt. Just my take.

    • Malem says:

      @ red hoodie i disagree, fame and popularity doesnt center around the USA only.. maybe it was like that in the 90s or 00s when USA matter but now? uhm.. angelina and brad were THE couple, the union of supernova world level stardom. bradniston was your local tabloid tv actress movie actor couple.

  13. Laalaa says:

    Frankly, I don’t think they are doing anything other than being friendly when they run into each other and people just see what they want to see.
    And yes, I know I will now be slammed in the comments. #sorrynotsorry

    • Darla says:

      I agree but the reactions are hilarious.

      • smcollins says:

        Allow me to pull up a chair with the two of you because that’s pretty much how I see it, too. They’re not the first pair of “friendly exes” to ever exist and they won’t be the last. On some level does JA relish, just a little, in the speculation and gossip of “will they or won’t they get back together?” Maybe. And is BP feeding the beast a little, or at least offering it a nibble? Maybe. But people losing their collective minds over it is indeed very entertaining.

      • Observer says:

        The reactions are so over the top.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        what I notice about the reactions is that the people who seem to hate her the most are also the ones who apparently follow EVERY post about her, thoroughly analyze her actions and words, and seem to be able to figure out her motivations. all while talking about how boring she is.

        I mean, one post has a reference to a picture that I had to dig to find. I was curious about their description of the pic so I googled and it took me longer than I thought it would to find it. which means, this person who hates her either spends time searching out photos she (Aniston) took and posted OR follows her on social media. (needless to say, said description of the picture had a supposition about it and what it meant compared to how innocuous the pic actually was.)

      • Cheryl says:

        It’s nice to see some actual sense in this thread. Any given post about JA always turns into a toxic feeding frenzy here most of the time, and it gets so tiring.

    • Kate says:

      I was wondering if I was the only one who thinks they are simply being cordial/friendly as people do when they have moved on and no longer hate an ex or have any feelings for them. I don’t think we can assume any interviews Jen did within a few years of the divorce when she was still hurting is indicative of how she would feel about Brad for the rest of her life. She’s kind of a hippy California positive vibes type woman isn’t she? Why would she want to hold onto that animosity forever?

    • whatWHAT? says:

      right there with you and with Darla, also. usually the simplest explanation is the right one. they have fond feelings for each other and are friendly when they’re in the same space.

      but people do see what they want to, and usually it’s what fits their narrative.

    • Becks1 says:

      Make room for me on this couch. The reactions to these posts are hilarious.

  14. QUintins says:


  15. Sam67 says:

    Both are using each other to increase their image, the reason all of a sudden they want this to be pushed down nto everyone’s troats is becasue the generation Z never knew they were married 20 years ago.

    So pathetic and obvious and everyone should stop encouraging their thirsty attention seeking antics.

    Ironic how Jen only managed to greet Pitt after her was dumped and divorced by Jolie.

  16. SJR says:

    Too Late!

  17. melrose says:

    Where did that thirsty Whatsherlips go? Is her 15 minutes of fame over?

  18. DaisyDay says:

    @Noki If they were such huge stars then how come they are acting so thirsty for media attention? Like Kim Kardashian? We have seen.them both go out of their way to do these photo Ops and plants . Why are thses two acting so desprate to be attached and why make out they are laughing at the people who date to belive they are back or want to ve back? Thrir mutual PR agrnts are the ones to blame too. Then having the nerve to say they are lauhghing at people is quite narsasstic and egotism of them both. How dare they do these things and then mock us. I am disappointed in Brad and Jennifer’s actions.

    • Observer says:

      Brad and Jen are two of the biggest stars of their generation. They don’t need to do anything to draw attention to themselves. Brad and Jen greeted each other backstage at an award show they were both nominated for and months later participated in a table read that streamed on Facebook. Not sure how that makes them equivalent to the Kardashians.

      People are reading way too much into what has been pretty innocuous exchanges between exes. Are they supposed to ignore each or publicly disparage each other? Hopefully Brad can also get to a place where he can be civil & friends with Jolie.

    • Red Hoodie says:

      I think they were hugely surprised by the feedback from the general public about them getting back (esp after SAG awards when they had the backstage reunion). They probably have been directed by marketing teams to leverage it. Pitt has everything to gain from being associated with her name; she has more goodwill than he does at this point. Her risk is looking like she wants him back but she’s done well to keep it light and tread carefully.

      Also think Goop would be all over this kind of angle in a sec if anyone cared about GP and Pitt getting back together, to promote her ecommerce site. I believe he was more into Goop and Angelina than he ever was about Aniston – those two were her big loves IMO – but the public always loved Aniston-Pitt more than the other two combinations.

      Navigating the viral internet age is probably scary for these HW ol’ timers so they will make a few mistakes here and there but I think Aniston has done very well with her IG (not a lot of posts, doesn’t look thirsty) and this all Pitt business. She just has to seem receptive, open to friendship, and not too eager with him. Then people can’t say she’s still bitter and heartbroken and she can keep using that Aniston-Pitt goodwill to contribute to propelling her senior-era career forward. Good for her. (Not a fan of any of the three but there are a lot of great marketing lessons in all of this.)

  19. DaisyDay says:

    @Melrose the thirsty whatsherlips is still thirsty posing away , still milking her 15 minutes fame. Her new manger has opened up more accounts in her and Brad’s names and posting about Miravsl Wine while whatshernamelips pouts in her bedroom.

  20. Lively says:

    I’m sorry but the header pic, o thought it was brad himself …wtf never noticed the resemblance

  21. LOL says:

    The header pic of Jennifer Aniston I had to do a double take i thought it was Brad Pitt. They do look alike in those glases . Thanks Kaiser😉😂😂.

    . Also must add, they both ate equally “playing the media game”, everyone can see it. Just sad that they still think they have the “need to do so “, but I guess he has to “use Aniston to deflect from MIR, married Escort Mrs Nico Mary & his abusive behaviour towards his still traumatized kids “. As for Jen Aniston “she’s doing her victory prade that she got the deadbeat alcoholic who called her full and boring, back on her circle of friends”. So she can thumb it to Jolie and her kids

  22. lola says:

    Jen, love yourself!
    The guy cheated on you and then flaunted his new family in front of everyone a few months after your divorce. Don’t be his doormat!

  23. Marcy says:

    Meh, it’s long been my opinion that theirs wasn’t a romantic love marriage. It was two “beautiful people” getting together for the photo opps and publicity. When Brad met Angelina, he really did fall in love and a deal was brokered between them and their legal/publicity teams to let Aniston be the sympathetic figure and both played their parts very well.

    Sure, he’s using her right now, but that’s the game they both play and live with and understand.

    • Lady D says:

      Anniston sympathetic, Jolie the evil witch, they made this agreement before the JP relationship, and Angelina just went along with the arrangement?

    • Red Hoodie says:

      IMO he was rebounding from Goop when he got with Aniston. They were loving but think his big loves were Goop and Jolie in the scheme of things.

      • Granger says:

        I always felt that Aniston put on an “I’m just a tiny little woman who needs a man to protect me” persona, and that Brad loved feeling like her protector. I still remember how much weight she lost in the first year they were together–she practically disappeared before our eyes. And then Pitt got bored with all of that when he met Jolie, who was so strong and confident.

      • Red Hoodie says:

        @Granger, I have no idea what their dynamic was but I think he was on Oprah at some stage after filming on M&MS had started talking about how marriage wasn’t forever and how he had a pact with Jen on that point. It was like alarm bells.

        Anyway, what I remember about Jen is how she was like a little Disney Princess cartoon character in terms of cuteness level – the blue eyes, etc. People who have seen her in real life comment how she’s really delicate and tiny – it’s more obvious when you watch her on video. Underrated prettiness and beauty. The people who say she’s the plain one who got with the hunk and that’s why they were so popular (people wanted the plain-girl-and-hunk fantasy for themselves) are completely wrong. She is/was absolutely seen as a beautiful and cute woman esp during peak Friends. Michael Douglas was way more on point than Kimberly Stewart (who is, sorry, a very plain woman).

  24. Yolanda says:

    Honestly, I don’t understand how some people can still say this is just a friendship thing or they just have that special relationship.
    They are obviously just playing the pr game, when it can’t be more obvious at this point.
    I definitely blame Brad Pitt so much more,considering him apparently putting a lot of effort on the pr game to protect his image and gaslighting Angelina and the children.
    But Jennifer,she helping this human garbage’s pr game again and again really make me side eye her now.
    Also I don’t understand how people can all forget or ignore his married girlfriend.
    I don’t want nico disappear this soon, I wish Nico at least has got something on him, don’t let him go so easily. Brad is definitely preparing to completely cut her off.

    • Red Hoodie says:

      This is marketing gold ANYONE – ANYONE – would take advantage of. Pitt-Aniston story generates clicks and interest equivalent to billions in a marketing budget. It’s a question of how you use it – these two need to tread carefully. Oh, and not for a second do I think they’re getting back.

      • Martina says:

        They will never,ever get back together lol.
        I don’t even think they talk irl.
        JA was signed up way ahead of time to do this reading and brad later signed up.
        Brad is most definitely sneaky and has a agenda.
        Ja was already signed up for this reading ahead of time.
        Brad def had a agenda though.

      • Red Hoodie says:

        Agree with you here too, Martina (though think they do maybe have some casual contact like texting bland happy-birthdays)! Or as *someone* would comment, he’s “riding on her coattails,” LOL!

  25. Jodi says:

    i have been feeling the same damn thing. WHY DO PEOPLE LOOK AT THESE TWO AS “GOALS”???? He cheated on her and spoke openly about smoking weed and being super bored in their marriage and treated her like dirt right after it all fell apart. i totally understand if Jen is over it and just doesn’t want to be super rude at this point because she’s moved on but that’s not the vibe i’m getting. He’s slimy and is definitely using her good press because he’s been acting a fool with Angie and his kids and it shows. it’s just gross.

  26. anp says:

    Those two have no credibility with their overrated relationship. Both are frauds.

  27. Ann says:

    It wasn’t that long ago when they saw each other at an award show, and the next day, there was a picture of her white dress by the bath tub along with her heels, teasing the fans that their night may have continued. Jen’s just getting called out on all her PR games finally. If it wasn’t for Brad, she never would have been the tabloid queen, as her life is just not that interesting. IMO.

    • Martina says:

      It’s hilarious,because people keep saying she isn’t interesting and she is boring,yet the same person or person keeps commenting over and over and over.
      She is fairly bland and boring,,but she manages to get people so worked up and ralled up.
      That is hilarious.

      • Red Hoodie says:

        Yes, Jen is so vanilla though I quite like her. She’s the last person you’d have such strong emotions about…unless you had some personal links or something.

  28. Sorella says:

    I think it is a natural thing with these 2. She’s an Aquarius and many of them lament “the one that got away” forever after a split. And Brad being an Sagitarrius is friends with EVERY EX usually – they keep in touch with their old flames and are friendly with them (I am married to one). Except for Angelina that is LOL.

    • dollybee says:

      Finally somebody hit the nail on the head about Jennifer Aniston being female and Aquarius. i know a few female Aquarians and they are all alike. Extremely friendly, especially with their husbands or ex’s they stay true and friendly forever.

  29. Carol says:

    “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” Hamlet, Shakespeare.

  30. Ruby says:

    The amount of grown-ass people I’ve seen “fangirling” over those two over 50′s and begging them to get back together is embarrassing. Pitt is a deadbeat dad who looks like Frank Gallagher, who tool a married girlfriend from an open marriage to his marital house he still co- owns with the mother of his six kids and to mje mattrts worse took the tjirary instamodel sane eeeken what would gad been his 6th weddibg aniversary wirh the nother of his six kids. why would anyone wish that on Jennifer Aniston who herself is no better, she who threw a 15 years pity Party over this guy and went after the mother of his kids by allowing her best friends make racist jokes about adopted kids etc. Aniston who allowed her friends and media to vilify the mother of six on weekly accounts . They both are sick and image hungry individuals .

  31. Anne says:

    Pretty sure both Pitt and Aniston have enjoy the (positive, glowing) attention they get from it these days, especially him (while he reflects from his abuses toward a his side and adopted son). He played up the Jen angle hard during awards season (mugging the camera with his gaslighting speeches written by his last girlfriend Alia Shawkat. Both Anistin and Pitt They aren’t brand new on manipulating the media They both are pro’s at this gane
    They both are seasoned hustlers, they know how it all looks, what the middle-aged Beckys in flyover states will love. Both love the attention

  32. D-Frankie says:

    It’s a shame that all of a sudden nobody mentions Justin Theroux let alone his existence in Jennifer Aniston life and has everybody conveniently forgotten how Jennifer Aniston went after Justin Theroux just by the fact he was in a 14-year relationship with his girlfriend Heidi bivens . I haven’t seen any empathy towards Heidi bivens from any of the fan’s. It’s always all about Brad Pitt the only man who made Jennifer Aniston famous is it any wonder she doesn’t want to fall off that gravy train it’s quite disappointing despite all the millions and media loves her she’s still Drogheda chase after this drunk deadbeat father who traumatised his own children and not seen them since 2016

    Also it is gross to me that Brad Pitt is like using the media fascination with his horrible treatment of Jennifer Aniston (for which Angelina Jolie was unfairly blamed/demonized!) as PR fluff to draw attention from a pretty serious issue plaguing his ongoing divorce proceedings, his Make It Right Foundation homeowners lawsuit,and his French lightening designers Lawsuits about unpaid bills. Not forgetting the 26 year old thirsty instamodel whom he is in a relatshionship with along with her husband he’s doing buisbess with .
    They are daily spilling about her latest old conquest . Just pure embarassment all around. Jennifer doesn’t come out looking good in this either.

  34. Analise6 says:

    You can’t convince me that they both don’t love the attention.They both have become more relavant to a new younger audience with rehashing old times. And making out they were the Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton 20 years ago. Which they were not.

  35. Lissdogmom02 says:

    These 2 are both pathetic. Milking this for all it’s worth, you know a good part of the reason is to try to bug Angelina,. Please as if she cares. Seriously petty & small minded folks stuck in their glory days.

  36. PassingTime says:

    The hypocracy I’ve never liked Jennifer Aniston (the friends she keeps tells me everything I need to know about her). Same friends she openly used to bash Angelina and the kids over. But, her ~cordial attitude towards Btad Pitt really puts her in another category. They went for 15 years not being in the same room together and then Jolie dumps his pathetic, abusive ass (towards a CHILD at that) and all of a sudden their publicists let them hang out? Why?

    Anyway, all of that to say I find it weird that people still stanning them together nowadays. Pitt who terrorised his wife and kids the alcoholic abuser, wow what a catch.

    And why has everyine forgotten about Justin Theroux ? You know when jennifer Aniston was the women who stole Heidi Bivine’s boyfriend’s of 14 years Justin Theroux, to go on to do a fake marriage and then ghost him when Pitt got dumped from his wife. Why is everyone forgetting the life and men Jennifer Aniston had & maeried after Brad Pitt?

      Same poster, starting from years back, again. “Dlisted/FF mothership, Mandler hired to bash Jolie, mother of his children, Huvane the PR slut,” etc, etc. zzzzz…

      • Martina says:

        It’s absolutely the same person with 50 different screen names.
        They have a meltdown when you call them out.
        If you are going to have all these screen names at least change your writing style and stop repeating the same things in every post😂

      • Red Hoodie says:

        100%, Martina!

    I’m very disappointed in Jennifer Aniston she didnt need to do this but she has. She complains about the media and the tabloids talking about her, yet she is the one who gives them excuses to keep her on tabloids , same goes for thirsty Brad Pitt.. i mean both Jen and Brad are absolutely playing the PR game HARD. VERY HARD. NO ONE CAN DENY THAT.

    Brad especially gains a lot from this , especially it allows deflection from his Make it Right Foundation lawsuits and his custody issues , the 6 children he left in trauma therapy and gasnr been seen with since 2016.
    . Not forgetting his seedy arrangment with his friends wife the 26-year old married Nico Mary , their seedy aIm very disappointed in Jennifer Aniston she didnt need to do this but she has. She complains about the media and the tabloids talking better yet she is the one who gives them excuses to keep on tabloids same goes for thirsty Brad Pitt.I mean both Jen and Brad are absolutely playing the PR game HARD.

    Brad especially gains a lot from this especially it allows deflection from his make it right Foundation lawsuits and his custody issues the children he left in trauma therapy. Not forgetting his 26-year old married Nico Mary girlfrend abd their seedy business affair with her husband, his friend. Just GROSS

  38. WithAChainsaw says:

    Probably an unpopular opinion – but maybe they are just people who used to care about each other and be married, and because of their job/industry, it’s easier to be friendly than it is to play into the never ending drama that is their story?

  39. Ltd. says:

    It kinda seems like the media is still talking about it because middle aged women continue to buy those trash magazines with them on the cover like…

    What is SAD that EVERYONE has forgotten the fact that brad Pitt he was able to breeze past hitting his kid and not taking any responsibility for it and in return got a standibg ovations a heroes welcome for doing so .

    Everyone ignored how did children were left tray.atized with their mother looking after them and got blamed for every thing this alcoholic angry man did.

  40. LOL says:

    So now bad Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston want to change the narrative of that they were never sern together let alone talking to each other because of Angelina and the children and now that the Angelina and the children are out of his life they’re happy to be together and spending time now . How damn right insulting is that and Jennifer Aniston should be ashamed of herself for going along with this BS she doesn’t come out of it looking better .

  41. Jkl says:

    Both of them love this – it’s weird people act like she’s this quiet unassuming rich woman ~living her best life. They both play the PR spins whenever it suits them best. That being said though, I wouldn’t wish an abuser on my worse enemy. She should get better friends advising her.

  42. LOL says:

    What happened to Jennifer Aniston’s love of her life Justin Theroux?

  43. ad says:

    Both are media manipulators & tabloids fodders. Very image conscious! Good in fooling people to market themselves for people to buy what they sell!

  44. Originalcarol says:

    Am I the only one who noticed what Aniston looked like at the table reading versus how she looked at the Emmy’s? It’s like day and night. She is attractive looking at her very best courtesy of the hired help and without all that help? Just an average looking 50+ woman who most probably won’t give a second glance if we see her on the street and that’s being kind. Stars, they are just like us, lol.

    Anyway, back to the main topic here. As I said previously on another thread, this is what we will see and read about with these two tiring old asses and their slyly and so effortlessly PR games for the next few years until Pitt is able to get someone decent to be his real girlfriend. Already it’s Shawkat who? The instamodel will be a distant memory in the next few weeks. I do hope she sticks around for the holidays since I am tired of hearing about him having a nice time exchanging presents with some of the kids for the last f*cking 4 years zzzz.

    I think it’s kind of sad that they both use each other whenever either one of them is nominated for an award. They know stans want them to get back together, which is crazy considering what he did to her. I think there’s this narrative of the nice girl next door winning the man, over the sexy ‘succubus’ Angelina, the woman who lured him away with her lady parts. I like Jen, mostly because of Friends but I don’t believe she’s this perfect wholesome nice girl, it’s just an image put together by her PR people. It’s funny how no one ever blames Brad for anything, he didn’t need to run off with another woman and have 100 kids with her.

  46. Nero90 says:

    Pitt and Aniston will always remain two thirsty media hustlers, and will carry on hustling their deadend relatshionship from 2 decades ago. Everyone has their number. I wonder how far they will go to sell the past and drag it into the present?

  47. serena says:

    Honestly, I would love for Jennifer to just send him to hell instead of playing HIS game. Because, let’s be frank, it has no benefits for her. Being the one who waited, after being ‘wronged’ and all the drama the past 15years, is a little bit pathetic in her case.

    As for him, he just disgusts me at this point.

  48. Pinkstripes says:

    I’m not a fan of any of the three but this is too cute:

    They looked so young and innocent and didn’t seem to take themselves very seriously back then as an “A list couple.”

  49. Disco-Balled says:

    They have the same agency – CAA. Surfing through the older posts on Jen-Brad union, came across a very good point: she could be doing all this as a favour for their agency. Because certainly he’s getting a degree of image rehab out of all this; she doesn’t need it at all; she’s doing very well in her career and is very well liked by the industry and consumers alike.
