You did WHAT, Christina?! In an especially awkward game of ‘Plead the Fifth,’ the ‘Vacation’ star revealed to ‘Watch What Happens Live’ host Andy Cohen that she once dumped Brad Pitt for another man! Watch her embarrassing confession here.
Brad Pitt, 51, is widely considered one of the most handsome men in Hollywood, but apparently not even his chiseled good looks could keep him from getting dumped by blonde beauty Christina Applegate, 43. The Vacation star shamefully revealed to Andy Cohen, 47, in an episode of Watch What Happens Live on August 2 that she once dumped the famous actor for another guy. Seriously, what was she thinking?!
It’s long been rumored that Christina went to the MTV Movie Awards with Brad in 1989, but later ditched him mid-date for another man. On Aug. 2, the Bravo host attempted to get to the bottom of the 26 year old mystery by asking Christina to reveal who this lucky mystery man was. “The question is, who was the guy you ditched Brad Pitt for?” Andy asked a nervous-looking Christina. “Do I have to say it?” asked the Prince Charming star, before adding. “I don’t have to do nothing!”
That’s right — Christina’s lips are sealed! Still, while she didn’t come right out and reveal his name, the actress did later admit that unlike Brad, her mystery man was not an actor, though he was well-known to the public. In a series of further sub-questions, Christian also revealed that she did see Brad again, though they never went on another date — understandably. Of course, we can’t feel too bad for Brad as he did later go on to date some pretty amazing women including Gwyneth Paltrow, 42, Jennifer Aniston, 46, and his now wife, Angelina Jolie, 40.
So what question did Christina plead the fifth to? The Sweetest Thing actress decided to keep mum on the subject of her handsome co-stars, specifically when it came to naming which of them had the biggest bulge. “I have to plead the fifth on that one,” she replied, flashing her wedding ring at that night’s fellow guest star, Mark Consuelos, 44. For the record, we agree that was probably a good call on her end, although we’re betting she had Chris Hemsworth, 31 in mind for that one.
