Jen Aniston’s still not over Brad. And she’s especially not over how he publicly dumped her, so she absolutely made the right move to leave LA for London before any paparazzi could try to snap her on Angie’s big night.
She knew the whole town would be talking about Angelinaand Brad, and Angie’s new film Salt. “If I was her best friend I would have advised her to get as far away as possible, which she did,” says psychologist Cooper Lawrence, author of The Cult of Celebrity. ”It was perfect that she just ‘happened’ to have to go to London to promote her new fragrance,” called ‘Jennifer Aniston’ at Harrods department store.
Jen, like many of us, just hasn’t been able to fully move on from the breakup of her marriage. ”I know lots of people who never get over a breakup like this five or ten years later. It doesn’t matter how much time has passed,” says Lawrence.
Realistically, Jen has had a far tougher task than most folks would have. We haven’t had to see photos of our ex’s annoyingly handsome face plastered all over magazine covers, the Internet, and TV, with his hot, younger woman who manages to be an Oscar-winning actress, mother of the year, and a humanitarian missionary. That’s a hard one to swallow.
And every time Jen starts to move on, Brad and Angelina adopt or give birth to another baby or child, setting off a new distressing press frenzy.
“The split had to have been a HUGE blow to her ego. No wonder she had to publicly rush to say she was fine after the break up, but because she did that, she didn’t really deal with her feelings of extreme hurt and insecurity,” believes Diana Falzone, WeTV relationship expert and star of the new show Put a Ring On It.
Wouldn’t we all do the same thing? Wouldn’t we all have scrambled like Jen to protect what was left of our shredded, betrayed egos?
Wouldn’t we all have wanted to crawl into a hole to try and forgotten that our ex even existed? But in Jen’s case it was IMPOSSIBLE! No wonder Jen has made a mission out of working out, yogacizing, and tanning herself to perfection. She’s needed to reassure herself that she is beautiful and desirable, which she is.
But she’s also made the mistake of subconsciously choosing the wrong guys post-Brad. Guys like John Mayer, who can never be more than arm candy. ”She’s terrified other men may leave her like Brad, so she chooses men who she can’t go to the next level with,” believes Falzone. ”She’d rather be alone than choose a man who might be honest and forthright but if it didn’t work out…it would hurt like hell again.”
Yes, we all know that fear. Who wants to get kicked to the curb multiple times?
The bummer is Jen, that if you ever want to truly move on from that crum bum Brad, you’ll have to face your hurt and anger and convince yourself for real that you’re still worthy and a total prize, which you are. You also have to face the fact that there was something not right about your relationship with Brad or he never would have fallen victim to Angie’s charms.
It takes two to break up.
But you know what, even if you can get to the point where you give a rat’s rear about Brangelina, you should still make scarce when either of them has a BIG NIGHT. Because who NEEDS the nonsense of being bothered by anyone seeing you and comparing you, like we’re doing right now.
By the way, you looked fabulous in your Valentino mini at your perfume launch! Brangelina who?
