Women everywhere want to know what Angelina Jolie and Julia Roberts’ secret is to looking so good. Their shockingly similar answer is one that single ladies won’t want to hear.
Last week at an overseas press conference Jolie revealed that what makes her feel and look so sexy is her longtime partner Brad Pitt. “He always makes me feel sexy and desirable.” Julia echoed those sentiments this week when David Letterman asked her how at age 42 she still looks so amazing. “The love of a good man,” Roberts laughed.
On the surface this seems just lovely. All you need to look beautiful is to be loved. You don’t need to diet or get plastic surgery or workout like a fiend. You just have to be loved. Lovely. But let’s not forget that these loving men were someone else’s husband when Angelina and Julia swooped in to be loved by them.
Julia’s hubby Danny Moder was married when he and Julia met on the set of the movie The Mexican in 2000.
Brad Pitt was famously married to Jennifer Aniston when he started seeing Angelina Jolie.
While it is nice that these two beauties can attribute their glow to the love of their husband and partner (although we have a sneaking suspicion that it is due to a little more than that!), their comments are alienating to their single fans since it intimates that women can’t be beautiful without a man in their lives.
