It’s taken ages for Jennifer Aniston to talk about Angelina stealing her then husband, Brad Pitt. But she does so in December’s Vogue, finally talking about how “uncool” Angelina is for telling all in an interview in a previous issue of Vogue; outlining detailed timelines of her and Brad’s affair on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith, while Brad was still living with and married to Jen.
When I ask her about Angelina Jolie, Aniston asks me to turn off the tape recorder for a moment. Suffice it to say, if there is never any love gained in the first place, there can be no love lost. But she did want to put a few things on the record. (Funnily enough, they involve some of the same issues brought up by the recent profile of Jolie in The New York Times, in which she talks about falling in love on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith.) She asks me if I ever saw a cartoon that appeared in the New York Post a couple of years ago that depicts Aniston talking on the phone in her kitchen. The bubble over her head says, HI ANGELINA…I DECIDED TO TAKE YOU UP ON YOUR OFFER OF A “SIT-DOWN TALK.”…In the drawing, Aniston is loading a shotgun, and there is a copy of Vogue sitting next to her. (The cartoon was inspired by an interview I did with Jolie for this magazine in January 2007 in which she said she would welcome the opportunity to “sit down” with Aniston.) Someone sent Aniston the cartoon (“the funniest thing I’ve ever seen,” she says), and afterward, she could not resist the urge to buy a copy of Vogue to see what the fuss was about. What really rankled Aniston about the piece was that Jolie felt the need to recount a detailed timeline of exactly how her relationship developed on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, while Aniston was still married to and living with Pitt. “There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening,” says Aniston. “I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss.” Aniston, still galled, shakes her head in disbelief. “That stuff about how she couldn’t wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool.”
I’ve always been Team Jen. I don’t forget that only a few short years ago Jolie was wearing vials of blood round her neck and shooting heroin like it was a vitamin supplement. Team Aniston all the way.
That Angelina has no class, regardless of how many little foreign babies she adopts. As for that big fat pretty cheater, Brad – karma will come back to bite his ass, and not in the good way.
