Should You Stay In Touch With Your Ex Like Jennifer Aniston Does With Brad Pitt?

Should You Stay In Touch With Your Ex Like Jennifer Aniston Does With Brad Pitt?

Is it cool for these two exes to keep in contact — even if if he new love, Angelina Jolie, is against it?

Their marriage may not have ended amicably, but if Brad Pitt and ex-wife Jennifer Aniston are still allegedly involved in each other’s lives, to the chagrin of B.P.’s baby mama/life partner, Angelina Jolie. Should you, like Jen, keep in touch with an ex-love or should you keep your distance?

In Touch Weekly claims that when Jen’s beloved dog Norman died, Brad phoned her to offer his condolences on May 18 and the two began reminiscing. Brad gave his former love advice on her upcoming move to NYC and “ told Jen how much his mom misses her.”

The magazine adds that Angie would be “livid” if she knew her man was having secret talks with his ex. “He may have more passion with Angelina, but he had more fun with Jen,” the source says. “He misses that.”

Ouch. Jen’s in a bit of a bind here. On one hand, she very much loved Brad, and he was a massive part of her life. Sometimes it’s hard to let go. On the other hand, their marriage did not end amicably, especially as the word on the street is that he actually left her for Angie. So what’s a girl to do?

Jennifer’s situation is a slightly unique situation. The world waits, watching to see how this trifecta will react when they come in contact at any given moment. She has to be polite in public. However, she shouldn’t be in close contact with a man that might have hurt her so badly.

I think remaining in contact with your ex is a very bad idea if he hurt you or you can’t seem to get over him. You’re holding on to something when you should be letting go, which prevents you from moving on. Plus, not that you really care (especially in Jen’s case) but it’s disrespectful to his new girlfriend to be engaging in anything she doesn’t know about behind her back.

Sorry Jen, but the next time Brad calls, don’t pick up. Let him send a card instead. It’s time to focus on other men – like new guy Justin Theroux, perhaps?

Disrespectful of Angelina? Are you serious? Angelina had no problem sneaking behind Jennifer’s back while her and Brad were MARRIED. Unbelievable.

I think jen should do what she wants to do.
Brad is not married and neither is she.
It didnt stop angelina from tying one on with a married man.
In fact she hurried to make babies with him knowing he could leave her any time.
When you have been married to a man or a woman the relationship doesn’t end just because of a piece of paper.
They are free to be friends.

Why, Laura? Is it bad to be friends with people you learned to love before?
YOU are OBVIOUSLY pro this Angelina. ALL your ADVICES are biased! You favor one side. What if what happens to Jen happens to your real life and your ex-husband still wants to keep in-touch with you? Will you avoid him? You answer that question when you are ALREADY at that situation.
AND you are talking about Jen respecting ANGELINA? Why would she do that? That woman is the main reason why she is not with the man he truly love. Will YOU please use your proper judgement when making advices not from your own opinions. You sound so BIAS and UNFAIR at all your advices regarding that love-triangle. YOU HATE JEN and it’s obvious so pls get another topic where your emotion is not involved or better yet get a new JOB!

Angelina Joli is an iconic beauty, devoted mother, philanthropist, brilliant actor, articulate spokesperson, free spirit, charismatic, enigmatic, edgy and courageous. She walks to the beat of her own drum and doesn’t live by the dictates of HollyWood etiquette nor dilute her personality to attract more fans. She is the megastar with unprecendented box office pull, particularly for a female actor. Angie breaks the mould, she’s unique. I love that she said she could never be as lovely as Liz Taylor was in Cleopatra, I love Liz but Angelina’s beauty and talent really does eclipse Liz (boo away but it’s true).

So why, with the world at her feet would she care if her devoted partner called one of his exes to offer condolences, she wouldn’t care. The tabloids and public may stew on this but Angie has her own logic, she is not the insecure type, despite ‘sources’ in the anti-ange camp. Quite the opposite, in her own words Angelina has spoken openly about her sexuality, referenced a more liberal view of relationships and never hovers over Brad while he’s on set filming with female co-stars.

When Brad was married to JA he went to visit Gwyneth Paltrow after her father died, he’d been engaged to Gwyn for two years. Angie herself keeps in contact with exes. As long as it’s in the open Angie is incredibly relaxed and non intrusive. From a different persective, mine, I wouldn’t care, Jen is no threat to anyone, even Courtney Cox is spreading her wings and finally getting out from under the jealous and suffocating egocentrism Aniston embodies. While JA may pursue every A lister she can find the interest in not reciprocated. With so many trysts under her belt since her divorce, there’s no going back. The rot had set into that relationship long before it ended, even the tell all books that generally portray Angelina as the villian describe Brad as the one who did all the pursuing, Angie caved in and fell in love.

Which brings us to today, Angie will still be in her thirties when Brad turns the big five O, hmmmm, she’s young, sexy, hot blooded and globally considered one of the most beautiful women on the planet….why are we not focussing on Brad’s insecurities? He does have them you know, he doesn’t let Angie out of his sights for long and when she was filming with Johnny Depp, Brad stayed very close to his lover. Look outside the paparazzi skewed reality and consider the actual dynamic, a lot to be said for independent thinking.

I would love to see Angelina get a younger and juicier man when Brad’s head turns Salt and Pepper. I would just love to see that.

Angelina ENVY from Hollywood Life knows no boundaries. Angelina & Brad would be richer if they decided to file a lawsuit against your bullsh*t articles.
