Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: We’re Holding Secret Talks!

According to an onslaught of recent rumors, Brad Pitt is getting back together with Jennifer Aniston.

Call us crazy, but we aren’t exactly buying this chatter.

On a semi-related note, however, reports also indicate that Pitt is back in contact with estranged wife Angelina Jolie, leaving folks to wonder why.

Is Jolie pissed about the Aniston reunion talk?

Is she considering a reconciliation with Pitt?

Are they collaborating on a movie project?

No, no and no.

Nearly 18 months after they stunned the world by announcing their separation and planned divorce, Jolie and Pitt are still working out the details of their legal split.

There’s no chance they will ever see each other naked, so don’t go getting all excited over this drawn out process.

But there is hope that the initial tension between the superstars has thawed and that an amicable relationship is still very much possible.

The Blast writes that Jolie and Pitt have filed documents in their divorce case, asking to extend their “temporary judge” so that negotiations remain private.

This means we can’t say for certain just what the actress and actor are talking about as it relates to their break-up.

But it’s most likely they are figuring out a way to distribute assets and, of course, coming up with a custody arrangement that satisfies both sides.

Granted, most divorces do not take this long to settle.

However, most divorces do not involve so many millions of dollars between the man and the woman – or so many kids!

Angelina and Brad are the parents to six sons and daughters: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox.

Amid speculation that Pitt was actually abusive with Maddox on board a private airplane in the fall of 2016, Jolie was hesitant at first to agree to any sort of joint custody.

But the two are now coordinating schedules so that Mom and Dad both get ample time in the kids on a regular basis.

“Brad and Angie are doing OK, working out time for him to be with the kids,which he treasures,” an insider tells People Magazine.

Right now, the kids reside permanently with Jolie in Los Angeles and visit with Pitt on occasion.

“Angelina is busy with everything she is doing, including being a super mom to her kids,” someone close to the actress previously told this publication, adding:

“But she is doing fine and working with Brad on ways to continue their lives so everyone is happy.”

As for Pitt?

He’s at least in a better position now than he was several months ago, back when he was actually under investigation by the FBI for supposedly getting physical with Maddox on board that aforementioned airplane.

He’s given a few candid interviews in which he’s admitted to maybe smoking and drinking a little too much back in the day and appears to have arrived at a few revelations about his life in general.

The guy clearly loves his kids.

“The process has been difficult,” said a different People source. “But he is OK and remains committed to his family.”

Brad Pitt to Angelina Jolie: Here’s $100 Million. Now… GO AWAY!

Brad Pitt really wants his marriage with Angelina Jolie to be over.

And the actor is willing to put his money where his mouth is.

Like, A LOT of money where his (very handsome) mouth is.

According to Life & Style, Pitt is anxious to put his failed marriage behind him, but Jolie is dragging her feet on signing the final papers.

In response, Pitt has advised his attorney to sweeten the settlement pot. By a significant amount.

“In hopes of getting Angie to sign off on the divorce, Brad started throwing huge financial settlement offers at her lawyer,” a source tells the aforementioned tabloid.

Thus far, however, Pitt has been unsuccessful… despite trying really hard.

“Angie has rejected every single offer, including the most recent one, for $ 100 million,” this same source says.

Wait, WHAT?!?

Pitt offered Jolie $ 100 million to complete the ex-couple’s divorce? And she didn’t take it?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

We know Jolie isn’t exactly in need of money or anything, but there’s no saving this relationship.

Why not just take the giant sum of money and run?

In a new interview, Jolie does not address this rumor.

But the 42-year old Oscar winner admits the stars she made their second project together (2015’s By The Sea) as a means to “communicate” with each other.

Even back then, it was evident things were just a little bit off between the husband and wife.

“We had met working together and we worked together well,” Jolie told The Hollywood Reporter‘s podcast, Awards Chatter, explaining this week:

“I wanted us to do some serious work together, I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate.

“In some ways it was, and in some ways we learned some things.

“But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on and it wasn’t because of the film.”

That’s about as open as Jolie has been about the former romance since she filed for divorce from Pitt in September of last year.

She cited “irreconcilable differences” in her divorce filing, asking for primary custody of the pair’s six kids:

Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11 and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

But Pitt wants joint custody and took exception early on to Jolie (or “sources,” we should say) labeling him as some kind of deadbeat dad who drank a lot.

There was one specific incident of Pitt allegedly getting into it, while wasted, on board a private airplane with Maddox.

The FBI even investigated the altercation, but did not come away with any evidence that any sort of child abuse had taken place.

“Brad felt he was depicted as an alcohol-swilling, pot-smoking, irresponsible and abusive husband and father — and that it was largely Angelina’s doing,” Life & Style writes.

As a result, Pitt has no interest in taking Jolie back, even if she were to come crawling.

Writes the magazine:

“Brad feels too much damage has been done and she’s tormented him for too long to consider taking her back. He doesn’t trust Angelina anymore.”

We can’t blame him.

But we do have one final question related to this split:

When will Pitt get back together with Jennifer Aniston?!?

Angelina Jolie: It’s Been Quite a Year!

We’re inching closer and closer to anniversary we never thought we’d mark:

On September 19, it will be one year since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.

For the first few months after this shocking split, neither star spoke much to the media.

There were plenty of rumors over just what transpired between the actress and actor, with a few scathing accusations leveled at Pitt in regard to his alleged drug and alcohol use.

Fast forward to 2017, however, and Pitt and Jolie appear to be on decent enough terms.

They aren’t really speaking to each other, but they have been speaking to the press.

Talking to The Sunday Telegraph, for example, Jolie recently lamented her single status.

“Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together,” she said.

“But really I am just trying to get through my days. I don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.”

And now Jolie is opening up even more as the cover subject of the latest People Magazine.

“I have had my ups and downs. I guess I am a little bit stronger,” Jolie tells People over the past several months, adding:

“We all have our difficult times, but as a mother you also have a responsibility first and foremost towards the kids.

“They are going through their formative years and everything else comes second to that.”

Jolie’s latest directorial effort, First They Killed My Father, hits Netflix on September 15.

The film is based on her friend Loung Ung’s memoir about surviving the Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia, which is the country from which Jolie and Pitt adopted son Maddox.

Will Angelina ever act again? Yes.

But it isn’t a priority.

“Everything will be around the children,” she says. “I haven’t worked for over a year now because they needed me home. Everything was just stopped.

“I’m really sitting and talking with them because everything affects them. Every location, every type of project, I’m going to have to adjust it to however much they can handle.”

Jolie and Pitt are still trying to finalize an official custody agreement for their six kids: Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, Vivienne and Knox, 9.

The actress has been trying to keep them away from the spotlight, but she understands this isn’t realistic and perhaps not even desirable.

“I think they’re itching to get out in the world again,” says Jolie, concluding:

“We’ve all been a bit in lockdown and going through some things. I think it would be good to get out there and play together.”

Angelina Jolie: I HATE Being Single!

Angelina Jolie is making it clear …

She has not been having a good time in the year since she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.

To hear her tell it, she’s not just experiencing the typical heartache that comes from such a significant split.

No, the aftermath of this divorce is darn near tearing her apart.

In an interview with Vanity Fair published in July, Angelina said said that she and her children have been going through “the hardest time,” and “we’re just kind of coming up for air.”

Not only that, but “We’re all trying to do our best to heal our family.”

She also revealed that in the months before she filed for divorce, “things got bad” — but she corrected herself, saying “things became difficult,” because she “didn’t want to use that word.”

What’s the big difference between saying things were “bad” and things “became difficult”?

We’re not sure, but it seems significant to her — and she made it clear that things were both bad and difficult by hinting at some traumatic events that led to the divorce.

“We’re all just healing from the events that led to the filing,” she explained. “They’re not healing from divorce.”

“They’re healing from some … from life, from things in life.”

Do you kind of wish that she’d either actually talk about what happened or hush about it?

Same.

But in a new interview Angelina did, this one with the Sunday Telegraph, she’s still being vague — but by piecing together these quotes with the Vanity Fair ones, we might be getting an accurate picture of what went down.

About the divorce, she says “Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together. But really I am just trying to get through my days.”

“I don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.”

So it really sounds like she felt she had no other choice but to divorce Brad, right?

In the few interviews she’s done in which she mentions Brad and their breakup, she really does sound miserable — he must have really done something she felt he couldn’t come back from.

In this interview, Angie goes on to say that “Emotionally it’s been a very difficult year.”

“And I have some other health issues. So my health is something I have to monitor.”

In the past year, she’s said that she developed hypertension and Bell’s Palsy, thanks to all the stress. So yeah, it makes sense that she’s having to keep a close eye on things.

“I feel sometimes that my body has taken a hit,” she says, “but I try to laugh as much as possible.”

“We tend to get so stressed that our children feel our stress when they need to feel our joy. Even if you are going through chemo, you need to find the ability to love and laugh.”

“It may sound like a postcard,” she adds, “but it’s true.”

In trying to find that joy and all that love and laughter, she’s put aside her film career for the moment, and instead she’s been “going to cooking classes.”

“Cooking is one of those things you do when you are settled in your life and you can take the time,” she explains. “But somehow I am just very impatient and I am a little bit erratic.”

“But I am getting into it now. I feel like, if I cook, the kids can all hang out. Although they often take over and tell me that they can do it better.”

Angelina goes on to say that, at this point in time, “I need to rediscover a little bit of the old me. I think we lose our way a bit.”

“I have had a lot happen in my life, from certain people passing to health issues to raising the children. And it’s been a very good time to absorb and develop and grow.”

“But maybe now that my kids are growing up I am starting to realize that my own sense of play has been put on hold for a while,” she says.

“And maybe them hitting their teens is going to bring out a little more fun in Mom. So maybe I am going back. It may be time.”

It sounds like she’s still reeling from the divorce, which is understandable, but also like she’s ready to move on to a newer, better phase of life.

Best of luck, lady!

Angelina Jolie: What’s Her Sex Life Like These Days?

Despite what some people hoped, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are still getting divorced.

Yes, the great Brangelina romance, held up as everyone’s romantic ideal and glorified by Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl, is really over. And it’s staying that way.

They’re leading separate lives now, and that means separate sex lives. And now we know what Angelina’s been getting up to.

As the world remembers, this famous couple split last year after an incident on an airplane for which Angelina reported Brad Pitt for child abuse.

We didn’t know that at the time, and pretty much everyone speculated about what had caused their breakup.

A lot of people just assumed that it was Angelina’s fault. Some even blamed the divorce on her double-mastectomy, because people are the actual worst sometimes.

(There’s a lot in our culture that seems to make people eager to blame women when they don’t have any information)

Some of those folks felt vindicated after Brad Pitt was “cleared” after the investigation.

Even though the US justice system isn’t equipped to protect children or to prosecute those who harm them. Mostly because the laws are old and the democratic process demands compromise where there shouldn’t be any.

We don’t know the details of Brad Pitt’s altercation with Maddox and we probably never will, but someone accused of abuse being cleared by law enforcement unfortunately doesn’t mean much, one way or the other.

Whatever happened, though, either in and of itself or in a straw-that-broke-the-camel’s-back sort of way, must have been enough that Angelina Jolie couldn’t stay married to him for one more minute.

Because whatever happened clearly broke her heart.

HollywoodLife reports that a source close to Angelina knows what Angelina’s mindset is regarding sex.

Apparently, Angelina Jolie is embracing celibacy. That’s … not as easy for Blair Waldorf to talk up, as it’s inherently unsexy.

“Angelina’s mind is so not on romance or sex these days, she’s totally celibate and she’s embracing it.”

Hey, if that’s how she wants to live, more power to her.

A lot of people choose to live lives without sex even though they experience sexual attraction (there are also people on the asexual spectrum who do lead sex lives, if usually with a partner).

In Angelina’s case, there’s apparently a spiritual side behind how she’s currently living.

“She’s been reading a lot about how to transform sexual energy into creative power and she’s pretty fascinated by it. She’s started practicing yoga, which she used to hate but in the past year it’s really helped calm her mind.”

That bit about transforming sexual energy into creative power sounds a little goofy and New Agey, but there are a number of religious and spiritual paths that include celibacy.

That can mean everything from Catholic nuns (who honor their God by abstaining from sexual activity) to devoted Daoists who work to preserve their own vital energy by refraining from ejaculating.

If you’re thinking that Angelina came up with this idea on her own, though, you would be mistaken.

“One of the gurus that she’s following preaches about the distractions of sex so it’s not like she’s getting these ideas out of nowhere.”

There are gurus and then there are gurus, but Angelina is a cultured individual so she probably doesn’t mean some hipster guy named Steve.

Like we said, a number of religious and spiritual traditions find a sexless existence to be helpful, permanently or temporarily.

“Plus the fact is she really doesn’t identify with her own sexuality anymore. She’s still as sexy as ever but she doesn’t see herself that way anymore.”

That’s so sad!

“She’s totally shut that side of her down and she says she’s found a lot of peace in that. Her children and her humanitarian work is what she really cares about right now.”

Angelina has always, always put her children first.

Brad Pitt, in the mean time, has been getting back into acting.

It’s not that he ever stopped being an actor, but it’s different when you’re newly single.

Angelina and Brad will always be linked by their six children (six!), but even if various shippers’ wishes are granted and these two reunite, it’s hard to imagine things ever being the same between them.

But, hey, yoga is super good for you, so Angelina has that, now.

Brad Pitt: Did He Apologize to Jennifer Aniston For Angelina Jolie Affair?

It feels like a lifetime ago that Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston to pursue a scandalous romance with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star, Angelina Jolie.

In case you recently emerged from a decade-long coma, it didn’t work out, and Pitt and Jolie separated last year after 10 years and 40,000 kids together.

The split has apparently had a transformative effect on Brad, who says he’s taken time to re-evaluate his life and priorities.

In May, Pitt revealed that he’d quit drinking after more than 30 years of heavy boozing and regular recreational drug use.

Pitt says during his time in rehab he reflected on the relationships in his life in new light.

Most rehabilitation programs encourage patients to accept responsibility for their past actions, and sources say the actor has done exactly that.

According to Life & Style, Pitt went so far as to reach out and apologize to Aniston for being unfaithful during their marriage.

“Brad apologized for all the heartbreak,” an insider revealed.

“He doesn’t usually open up like that, but through therapy and recovery, he’s learned to express his feelings. He addressed all the hurt he caused her.”

Obviously, Jen – who these days is married to actor Justin Theroux – could have chosen to be petty and gloat about Pitt’s recent difficulties, but insiders say she was gracious and supportive throughout the conversation.

 “She was really won over by his apology,” a source tells the tabloid.

“A new era has begun for them.”

“She was incredibly receptive to the amends he was making. She told him she forgives him and to focus on the future,” a second source claims.

While it’s difficult to imagine Brad making that phone call after so many years, but the move would make sense in the context of what he says he’s learned in rehab.

Speaking to GQ about his newly-sober life, Brad says he’s learned a great deal about the ways in which the actions of the past stay with us, and he hopes to pass those lessons along to his kids.

“Well, there’s a lot to tell them because there’s understanding the future, there’s understanding the immediate moment and why we’re at this point, and then it brings up a lot of issues from the past that we haven’t talked about,” he told GQ.

“So our focus is that everyone comes out stronger and better people — there is no other outcome.”

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie: We’re Still Getting Divorced!

Last week, several media outlets reported that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had put their divorce on hold.

Many went so far as to suggest the iconic former couple was considering a reconciliation.

But now, our hopes have been dashed, just like Brad’s hopes at the end of Seven, when he found out Gwyneth Paltrow had been beheaded and he didn’t get to see it happen.

(Disclaimer: We kid. We have no desire to see Gwyneth Paltrow beheaded, and we’re sure Brad doesn’t either.)

(Also, apologies for the spoiler, but c’mon, Seven came out forever ago,)

Anyway, TMZ is reporting today that while the divorce may be taking longer than originally planned, Brad and Angie have no intention of attempting to save their marriage.

Though her own comments indicate that Jolie regrets portraying Pitt as an outright villain in the weeks following their separation, she has no interest in giving him a second chance.

Pitt is reportedly just as happy to let the relationship die, as he feels he was slandered when Jolie made him out to be an abusive father

The divorce was triggered by a confrontation between Pitt and son Maddox that took place aboard a private jet last September.

Details have been hard to come by, but an investigation cleared Pitt of child abuse charges.

We may never find out exactly what happened on that tarmac in Minnesota.

But whatever took place, it was ugly enough that it led Brad to seriously reevaluate his life and his parenting skills.

After years of heavy drinking and recreational drug use, Pitt got sober and rededicated himself to being the best possible father to his six children.

The change was significant that Jolie recognized it, and stopped trying to strip him of his custody and visitation rights.

So it sounds like against all odds, Brad and Angie have reached an amicable co-parenting arrangement and are ironing out the terms of a relatively civil divorce.

Perhaps a reconciliation was a bit too much to expect. 

Like when you turn on the TV and hope that the climactic scene in Seven will randomly be on cable.

We kid Gwyneth because we love her.
