Seriously? You’re still not over this?
No, we’re not! These things take time, okay? In his new book, Mr. & Mrs. Smith producer Arnon Milchan reveals that Brad Pitt did indeed cheat on Jennifer Aniston with Angelina Jolie. And here are the long-awaited details:
“At first, Jen didn’t believe he was involved with Angelina. She started asking around but no one would tell her anything because they were loyal to Brad, so she asked him point blank. He denied it.”
Brad and Jen then went on a Caribbean vacation with pals Courteney Cox and David Arquette during New Years 2005. It was then that Pitt couldn’t keep it in any longer:
“He eventually admitted he was in love with Angelina. Jen was furious and threw him out.”
The book also claims that Brad opted back into Mr. and Mrs. Smith when he found out Nicole Kidman was being replaced by Angelina Jolie. That’s a little creepy, isn’t it? Although since Brad Pitt is hot, instead of calling it “creepy”, we call it “romantic.”
All of this is probably the closest thing the public is ever going to get to a confession from Brad. And that’s all we really want. You can’t just leave your wife and then start this whole clan and not say sh-t about it. We just want some recognition. Jen may have moved on, but six years later, everyone is still talking about this.
And how the hell did Angelina Jolie come out of this still being one of the most loved and wanted women in Hollywood? That hardly seems fair. And this isn’t even her first rodeo. Back in 1999, Angelina played mistress to Billy Bob Thorton. Billy Bob left his live-in girlfriend, Laura Dern, to marry Jolie.
But Jolie isn’t the first Hollywood mistress that has somehow managed to keep her reputation. A handful of other starlets had their “other woman” status under the radar.
You would think Sienna Miller would know better. Actor Balthazar Getty cheated on his wife, Rosetta, with Sienna in 2008. He and Sienna were photographed kissing in Italy while she was topless. After his relationship with Miller ended, Getty reunited with Rosetta.
Billy Crudup’s wife, Mary-Louise Parker, was pregnant with the couple’s child when he cheated on her with Claire Danes. But Karma ran its course not long after that. Danes eventually cheated on Crudup with Hugh Dancy. Why even get married at this point?
While filming Grindhouse, director Robert Rodriguez reportedly left his wife for actress Rose McGowan. And as the course of cheating goes, McGowan eventually called off her engagement to the director, and rumors surfaced that she was cheating on him.
So I guess the lesson here is, if you’re going to cheat, you’re probably going to get cheated on. The best thing to do seems to be to just keep your pants on.
