Don't Ask Jennifer Aniston About Brangelina Wedding

Jennifer Aniston picked the wrong time to be promoting a movie. Oh, or maybe Angelina Jolie knew exactly what time to get married. In any event, Jen is out promoting her new movie and is in the middle of a long week of interviews. What everyone wants to know from her since the baby question gets really old really quickly is what she thinks about her former husband getting married to the woman he cheated on Jen with and whether Jen even knew they were getting married. Well, as much as you would like to know the answers to those questions, Jen has made it clear she will walk out of any interview that asks that question. She could walk out of or hang up on some local television station or radio station. If someone on one of the morning shows had the guts to do it she would be forced to answer the question or come up with some kind of response. The problem is the morning shows are all spineless and don't want to miss out on other celebrities to fawn over every morning so ask questions that are vanilla and basic and banal and plain and whatever other term you can use to describe a question that is not really even a question. I can also see why Jennifer doesn't want to talk about it, but it has been a decade and she talks about other guys she had sex with who cheated on her. Come to think of it, maybe she doesn't. The only guy she really talks about or interacts with that she dated is Jason Bateman and that was a long time ago and he had a bit of a substance abuse issue then so maybe she has let that one slide.

I dont understand why people would even bother. They were so long ago, she's been thru a lot of other guys. She doesn't really talk about them so let it be. They dont really sy shit about her. Brange didn't even tell Jon Voight so why would they tell her after all these years?

Simon said...

i wish they would stop the whole bit about Brad. it was 10 years ago. i am sure she is way over it

Essie said...

WHATEVER THEY HAD HAS BEEN OVER FOR 10 YEARS. GIVE IT A REST!!!

#LeaveAnistonAlone

FrenchGirl said...

10 years! It happened 10 years ago!! She moved since!He moved since!
Of course she's tired to reply to the same questions on her ex-husband!

Snit said...

she dated jason bateman??? huh.

crila16 said...

Why can't they just let it go? I was just dumped, and I seriously don't need to know if my ex is getting married to someone else when I'm trying to move on. I don't even want to know if he's dating.

Besides, as much as I can't stand Aniston, the woman has been in a faux relationship/engagement for the last few years. Doesn't the mini-van majority realize she's moved on and is extremely faux happy? Why do they still focus on Brad? That was 10 years ago.

sugarbread maker said...

didn't know about bateman

Eros said...

If I was her I would have banned interviewers from asking me dumbass brangelina questions too. Everybody has moved on except the idiot media. It detracts from the purpose of doing the interviews too-- promoting the movie.

Time to move on mainstream media

Cecilia00 said...

Yeah, I agree with her. It's been 10 years. The feminist in me kinda gets insulted. I feel like because she did not get married again and/or have children, her worth as a woman is still attached to Pitt- thus it still hasn't dropped after all this time and though she has been in a few relationships.

Jwill said...

I love Jennifer! I think her current beau is much more handsome and interesting than Mr. Pitt. And...I'm sure she thinks so, as well! Just let it go!

Jessi said...

I am truly annoyed for her and don't blame her in the least. Let it go people!!!

AndrewBW said...

Brad is still an idiot.

Renoblondee said...

Right?;.

Gayeld said...

@Snit. That's what I took from that as well. Had no idea.

msgirl said...

I dislike her but please, I don't blame her at all.

Sherry said...

I'm truly annoyed for her too. Let it go FFS. Why would you ask anyone about anybodies marriage when they're clearly doing press for a movie. Lazy stupid shits.

MISCH said...

Leave the woman alone

Dingle Barry said...

Brad and Heroina are idiots. Jen seems like the only sensible one. If that makes her boring, well, she's beautiful, rich and boring. What a lovely life she has built for herself. And I'm not a fan of any of them.

All Lace no Leather said...

I agree with all those that said 10 years is long enough to have given up caring. Leave Jen alone.

When did Jen and Jason Bateman supposedly date? He's been married since 2001.




LottaColada said...

What is she supposed to say, enty? Team Jen on this one.

Sherry said...

Faux happy. Cute Crila. Sorry for your break up unless he was an asshole and you kicked him to the curb then good for you!

Sarah said...

I doubt Jen cares about what Brad is up to. I think she was dealt a very public blow that forever entangled her. Angelina is a master at public relations, she pulled off a wedding without anyone catching wind of it. She definitely could have kept her affair with Brad quiet until the dust settled. Even the wedding announcement coincided with Jen's movie opening. Not the first time this happened, as much as Angelina won, she's got shades of LeAnn Rimes in there.

msgirl said...

I do find it funny she wore that dress to get attention and spark yet more pregnancy rumors!

AJ said...

I still remember when she was with that Tate Donovan guy ... Remember he did a guest spot of Friends ?

FrenchGirl said...

When did she dated Bateman ? in 90's??

califblondy said...

What else could they ask her that might be interesting? She's kind of boring.

JP p said...

I agree there really shouldn't be any animosity between the two it's been way too long. But in all honesty I guarantee you deep down it still pisses Aniston off

Greengrl said...

For years I found it so annoying & a big turn off when people bring up Jen during a Brad & Angie story. Even some of the people here brought up Jen when Enty posted about the wedding. Why are people so hung up on it 10 yrs later?

MISCH said...

Brad and Angie have been married for YEARS…this is just a PR stunt for attention…like holding onto that ACE till you need it.

Kaye said...

Brad wanted kids and Jen didn't, she wanted a movie career - so now Jen is making movies and Brad got his brood. Everyone should give it a rest, it was never gonna work with those two.

Tina Mallette said...

If Angelina is pulling off these little digs you have to ask yourself why- if you got the prize in your eyes why do you need to rub the salt in deeper? When LeAnn Rimes acts like this is obvious massive insecurity. Could our ice queen Jolie be deep down insecure? And not big enough to bury the hatchet with the old man - didn't she see Ray Donovan, the kids insisted on Grandpa coming to the birthday party LOL.

Angelina is probably more like Jon that she will ever care to admit.

msgirl said...

Well she did bury the hatchet so to speak, but John fucked up. Again.

Topper Madison said...

I wonder what Gwyneth Paltrow thinks about all this?

Michael said...

I would not want to interview her at all. She is boring and her answers are all fake crap. I am not a fan of hers at all and her movies have mostly been shit even though she has no need to hustle for money. Boring woman way past her prime

jack ducky said...

Yes, brad and Angie still care so much about Jennifer that they were like "lets fuck up her movie and get married lol". Nobody gives a fuck about a Jennifer Aniston movie anyway so move on.

alice said...

"The problem is the morning shows are all spineless and don't want to miss out on other celebrities to fawn over"

Ask the damn questions. Hollyweird needs the media more than the media needs Hollyweird.

Ms B'have said...

She's boring and fake as hell, but then again so is that line of questioning.

Nancy said...

It's been 10 years. I doubt she knew anything about it beforehand and if he did call her out of courtesy (which he certainly does not have to do, as when my parents both got re-married, they did not let each other know before hand)--then it is no one's business. They basically want to goad her into a comment that she obviously does not want to make. Let the woman discuss the project she has now.

FrenchGirl said...

What is Juliette lewis'opinion ?

Kelli said...

I agree with one of the posters above, if she was married or had kids the media wouldn't bother. But since she is still single, they hound her.

Also, I think the reason why B & A chose last weekend was because of the Emmy's and the VMA coverage. I really don't think they did it for any other reason. It's been 10 years and I doubt they sit around planning on how to foil JA's premieres or make her life miserable. I know everyone likes to create controversy

D Brown said...

She is smart not to answer. Now she can get 25-50 tabloid covers speculating on how she feels!

parissucksliterally said...

It has been a fucking DECADE. LET IT GO, MEDIA. LET IT GO.

Anjelicka64 said...

Whatever. Life goes on. Congrats to Brad&Angelina.

auntliddy said...

Word up, paris!!! LET IT GO!!!!

alp102000 said...

With just about anyone else who was dumped 10 years ago, I'd say let it go. But I think Jennifer has done more than her share of manipulating the media, and using Brangelina to keep her name in the spotlight. So I can't feel sorry for her.

Sarah said...

They shouldn't at this point, but it's well documented that their biggest moments are released to overshadow hers.
I always wonder if there was some behind the scenes showdown between the women that made Angelina want to rub Jen's face in her win.
Aniston made the divorce announcement so civil, then Angelina released the happy family photos in Africa immediately thereafter.
It's strategic. She doesn't so anything by accident.

Sherry said...

The Vanity Fair set up with them as a family was Brad's idea. Hence Jennifer saying he was missing a sensitivity chip.

Gayeld said...

That's what I thought, as well. With all the media focused on the award shows, it was the perfect time to do this discretely.

Yoj said...

I'm sure the timing of the wedding had more to do with taking advantage of Emmy/VMA weekend. The attention of the press was focused on Los Angeles. They were probably also taking advantage of the speculation about Clooney's upcoming wedding. Jennifer Aniston's film release coinciding with the announcement was just the icing on the cake :)
No, I don't sympathize with her, she's always used her love life to promote her films (remember her fake romance with Gerard Butler?), so she's a hypocrite to start demanding privacy now.

Yoj said...

@Sarah
Maybe Angelina hasn't forgiven Aniston for lying about the reasons for Brad's leaving her (lying on the cover of 'Vanity Fair', no less: "I never said I didn't want children, I did, I do and I will!").

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

Trust me, Jennifer Aniston not over it. She never will be.

AKM said...

Jesus. Leave Jen alone!

I'm a fan and never heard about Jason Bateman. When was that?!

Laughing with the folks wondering about Goop's and Juliette Lewis' reactions. HA!

NomNom83 said...

@Yoj: according to a previous reveal, Aniston and Butler got it on in a limo on the way to their premiere, so unless Enty was fooled, she really had something with Butler. At least as much as one can have something with that guy.

sugarbread maker said...

Jennifer Aniston Angelina and Brad all manipulate the media to their advantage. It keeps them in the headlines and gets free press for their stuff.

teresa crane said...

Justin is turning out to be way hotter than Brad so Jen is the winner here

I'm sorry but I'd hate to be interviewed and have to talk about my ex who did cheat on me and get remarried very quickly afterward

I still fucking hate his guts

And it has been a very long time since that incident

Seven of Eleven said...

I think Jennifer Aniston is shifty. Other than that, really, who cares? A decade later and tabs are still obsessed with power couple Brad and Jen and that homewrecker Angelina. {shrug}

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Media still talks about it because it's a profitable narrative.

That book and film "The Women" is about a regular housewife whose husband cheats with a much more glamorous woman. They get divorced and he marries the mistress. Years pass, but wounds never quite heal; there's the "will he come back to me?" question always in the air.

In the media's narrative, Aniston is the regular person women can relate to; Jolie is the glamorous homewrecker. We're supposed to see ourselves in Aniston, and we fear that someone way more beautiful can swoop in and steal our man at any time.

It's all a load of crap! But people still buy it and spread it on bread like it's Nutella.

Yoj said...

@NomNom83
Whatever was or wasn't going on between them, they used it to promote their movie. She uses her private life all the time.
I realize that she's far from unique in that and I'm not singling her out as being worse than others, nor am I claiming Angelina is any different.
My issue is with celebrities who want to control when the media can and can't ask about their private life. Mila Kunis has been guilty of this, too, lately. You cannot have it both ways.

Illinois Fan said...

@teresacrane, I agree! To this day I won't see a movie that either Angie or Brad is in. Brad has made lots of asinine comments about Jen in interviews while he promotes his movies. You know that he isn't saying anything that doesn't have Angie's approval. If they really want the Jen vs Angie stuff to go away, all Brad has to do is stfu about it. I think Jen has handled Brads comments with a lot of grace and class. Team Jen always!

He's The DJ, I'm The Rapper said...

The media will keep with this for the same reason they still do the "Jen's 6 Weeks Pregnant!"-covers. It sells. There are still a lot of bored women out there doing the "Team Jen" thing. I still say the divorce was the best thing that ever happened to her career. I don't think she'd have had that big of a following or opened some of those movies without the fans she gained by being "poor Jen." Her PR/agent guy, Kevin Huvane, milked this IMHO. Not necessarily a bad move. There are a ton of women who can relate to being spurned (or whatever happened to her), so they'd automatically want to take her under their wing or be on her side (or go to her crappy romcoms).

I never got caught up in all that stuff because I wasn't there. I don't know what happened. Were Brad and Angelina screwing while Brad was still married? If they were, was Brad and Jen's marriage basically over already anyway? Nobody knows, so why judge? Same goes for Aniston. Wasn't she accused of doing the same thing with Theroux (he was with some chick, Jen stole him)? I don't know anything about it, so I can't judge.

They're all doing fine. Brad's still a huge star. Angelina is still a huge star. Jennifer is still a huge star. They all have lives better than any of us can fathom.

MinPinGirl said...

God everybody get the fuck over it. Can you imagine if every interview contained questions centered around ex husbands and wives? Why do the press think they have to keep dragging that moldy old question up every time? They are the ones that can't let go of this stuff.

delete account said...

More whining from Anustown.
God I hate that narcissistic self pitying witch.

Patience Grasshopper said...

They both look so fresh-faced in that picture.

audrey said...

Jen/Brad/Angelina are this generations Liz/Eddie/Debbie. The movie magazines kept that triangle going for decades. Next week one of the tabloids will have a heartbroken Jen crying on Brad's mom's shoulder about the wedding. The week after that Angelina will leave Brad because he called Jen to tell her he was sorry about the wedding. Then it will be Jen--alone and pregnant with Brad's Baby while the Pitts honeymoon. They have at least another ten years of great cover stories with these three.

MissMoPR said...

JB had a substance abuse problem???!!!

Cee Kay said...

Whether Jennifer likes it or not, she will always be linked to Brad (and Angie). She owes her entire "career" to having married him, and now she has to live with that.

Bee Haven said...

Ok. Pop quiz.
Who here EVER thinks about their ex from 10+ years ago?
Not me.
I saw an ex at a music festival and it was like avoiding stepping in fresh dog poop. No emotional connection whatsoever.

The Enquirer said...

She should answer questions about it. Why does she care? Okay, I'm glad they got married but they have nothing to do with me. Next question.

paula said...

These would be rude questions to ask someone who is not a celebrity. Good on her for saying she'll walk away from them.

lmnop123 said...

There's absolutely no reason to ask her about an ex-husband who cheated on her over 9 years ago (and extremely successfully I might add which adds salt to the wounds if there are any). It's rude and disrespectful. For all of those people who don't want to see/hear from Jennifer on the day that Brangelina is being featured do your part by not bringing her up. The media is stirring the pot by drawing her into their life while she's promoting her movie.
