Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce drama rumors repeatedly have extended to his former wife, Jennifer Aniston, with Twitter churning up speculation about what the Friends actress might be thinking (“karma” became a repeated theme). Some even speculated that when his divorce from Angelina is complete, Brad will reach out to his ex for a romantic reunion, despite the fact that she is currently married to Justin Theroux. Now, a new report hints that the dream may come true, with the actor reportedly desiring to meet with Jennifer and even planning a romantic location.
Hollywood Life cites a source who revealed that Pitt and Jolie’s divorce will result in a reconciliation for Brad and Aniston. The former couple have already talked and even have a meeting planned, according to the insider.
Pitt, 52, called his ex-wife, and they reportedly decided to reunite at his beach house in Goleta, California.
“It’s the perfect spot because it’s far away from prying eyes,” explained the insider.
Before his affair with Angelina on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith ended his marriage to Jen, Brad and the Friends actress viewed that home as a “romantic getaway,” added the source.
Pitt “deeply respects” his former wife, noted the insider. But is it the first step in a romantic reconciliation, or just a friendship? The source also shared that at this point, renewing their love isn’t part of their plan, even though they are meeting at the place that they once considered to be a “romantic getaway.”
However, Jennifer’s representative denied the story, telling Hollywood Life that it is a “fabrication.”
One person who seems to be overlooked in this tale of the exes: Justin Theroux, the actress’ current husband. Now, Justin is speaking out about Brad’s and Angelina’s divorce drama and admitting just how much it is affecting his wife.
Cosmopolitan noted that it took only minutes for Twitter to go from shock at the news that Jolie was divorcing her husband to GIFs of Jennifer laughing and hinting that she felt it was karma for the two to divorce. And while she hasn’t actually released a public statement, Theroux has stepped up to the plate and hit home runs with his carefully worded insights.
“As a child of divorce, all I can say is that’s terrible news for those children, and that’s all I can really say. It’s boring to sort of comment on anything else,” declared Justin. “People are having a bad time – that’s horrible.”
As for the impact that all the chatter has had on Aniston, Theroux was candid and complimentary.
“[Jennifer] is a proper bada*s. She has lived through a lot of bulls**t.”
Justin believes that while some might have “crumbled under some of the stresses” that she has experienced as a result of Brad and Angelina’s split, his wife has stayed strong.
“I’m very proud of her for that, for the way she handles herself,” added Theroux. “In a weird way, it’s an honor to stand behind her. Truly, in that sense, she’s amazing.”
In addition to Justin, a famous feminist has stepped up to try to halt Aniston from getting tangled in Jolie’s and Pitt’s drama. And like Theroux, Gloria Steinem is praising the actress while doing what she can to achieve damage control.
Steinem is fed up and vocal about all the efforts to include Theroux’s wife in the rumors about Brad’s and Angelina’s divorce, telling People “enough already.”
Gloria has previously lauded Aniston for her poise, noting that the actress has attacked the incessant pregnancy rumors as well as body shaming.
“Yes, I think Jennifer has been subject to scrutiny in ways that I cannot understand or participate in,” noted Steinem. “We need her wisdom, we need her as an early warning system.”
Both Gloria and Justin are continuing to attack those who try to involve the 47-year-old actress in Jolie and Pitt’s messy breakup, with Theroux clapping back at the “nonsense” attempts to include Aniston.
“There’s an endless appetite for trash, apparently – though everyone would say that they don’t have that appetite,” slammed Justin. “But I think a lot of people do because people buy it.”
