Jennifer Aniston has finally broken the silence on Brad Pitt ditching her for Angelina Jolie. In the latest issue of Vogue, she tells Jonathan Van Meter what it was like hearing Angelina talk about nailing Brad Pitt on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith while he was still married:
She asks me if I ever saw a cartoon that appeared in the New York Post a couple of years ago that depicts Aniston talking on the phone in her kitchen. The bubble over her head says, HI ANGELINA…I DECIDED TO TAKE YOU UP ON YOUR OFFER OF A “SIT-DOWN TALK.”…In the drawing, Aniston is loading a shotgun, and there is a copy of Vogue sitting next to her. (The cartoon was inspired by an interview I did with Jolie for this magazine in January 2007 in which she said she would welcome the opportunity to “sit down” with Aniston.) Someone sent Aniston the cartoon (“the funniest thing I’ve ever seen,” she says), and afterward, she could not resist the urge to buy a copy of Vogue to see what the fuss was about. What really rankled Aniston about the piece was that Jolie felt the need to recount a detailed timeline of exactly how her relationship developed on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, while Aniston was still married to and living with Pitt. “There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening,” says Aniston. “I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss.” Aniston, still galled, shakes her head in disbelief. “That stuff about how she couldn’t wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool.”
Jennifer Aniston said Angelina Jolie is “uncool.” OH SNAP! Cancel the prom. But, no, seriously, like most people I’ve been anxiously waiting to hear Jennifer’s take on the whole Angelina scenario. Sadly, it didn’t involve any of the words I had hoped such as “me,” “her,” “bare-knuckle boxing,” “breasts a flailin’,” “that guy who writes The Superficial,” “video camera,” “sexual jujitsu,” and “midget covered in steak sauce.” Eh, we play the hands we’re dealt I guess – which in Jennifer Aniston’s case is John Mayer. – - She should probably avoid casinos.
