It's hard to believe there was once a time when the general public was hating on Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt for hooking up supposedly behind Jennifer Aniston's back. Bygones! It's also hard to truly hate on Saint Angie and ridiculously adorable Brad. Everyone always loves Jennifer -- although after taking on a role of being a stripper, that may change. Jen!!!
Angelina has been very forthcoming with some private matters, opening up about her double mastectomy and plans to have her ovaries removed. Heavy stuff coming from a woman many made fun of when she wore Billy Bob's blood in a vial necklace. Brad has stayed mum. Until recently. He's been dishing about Jennifer Aniston and now he's on to Gwyneth Paltrow.
Brad and Jen are said to still be friends. But let's get real. Is she coming over for Thanksgiving dinner? Are they on each other's holiday card list? What the crap does friendship really mean when it comes to exes? What does friendship really mean in celebrity fantasy land? So they're "friends." And Brad is such a friend he revealed that when married to Aniston, he wasn't "living an interesting life" and that he was "trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't." Brad's close friend and makeup artist Jean Black spilled that Angie was someone who could "unleash" his adventurous side. Jen might need a bandage for that boo-boo -- ouch!
Gwyneth Paltrow is now in the hot seat. The Goop goddess was Brad's main squeeze way back in the '90s. Brad says that Gwyneth's dad, the late Bruce Paltrow, taught him how to be humble. He shared that he learned from Bruce that you shouldn't be defined by what you do for a living, and so now if a stranger asks what he does, he says he's self-employed and a dad. Which is incredibly sweet. He learned humility from being with Gwyneth! How goop-a-licious!
It seems like the memories Brad has from his days with Gwynnie are cherished and sweet.
I love how Pitt's opening up about everything lately -- that's a lot coming from a man who always seemed to have an air of mystery about him. He's clearly learned from his past experiences and exes ... something we should all do.
What do you think of Brad Pitt being so loose-lipped?
