Jennifer Aniston finally spoke out about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce, and kept her take on the situation sweet and simple. She thinks it’s absolutely horrible that they split up!
It was inevitable; someone asked Jennifer Aniston what she thought about the news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are getting divorced! Well, they asked her husband, Justin Theroux, at least, about her take on her ex-husband’s split, while he was doing press on September 27 for his new film, The Girl on the Train.
His response? Jennifer thinks “it’s boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time, that’s horrible.” That’s really sweet of her! She may not want to comment on it any further, but she acknowledged what a rough time Brad and Angelina must be going through.
Angelina filed for divorce in September 19, two years after they married in 2014, and 12 years after they fell in love on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith — while he was still married to Jennifer (they divorced in 2005). Ouch! But both Jennifer and Angelina have made it clear over the years that they’re sick of talking about “Team Angelina” and “Team Jennifer.”
Over a decade later, Jennifer is happily married to Justin, and yet she still gets dogged by questions about her first marriage to Brad, and her apparent (unfounded) desire to have children with no alleged success. This divorce is only going to fuel those persistent rumors that she and Brad have been in love all along and are getting back together! It really sucks!
Justin also commented on the split, and said that he really felt bad for Brad and Angelina’s six children. As a child of divorce himself, Justin said he knew what their kiddos were going through, and that it’s “terrible news.”
