Is there any long gone Hollywood couple people like to dwell on more than Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston? Jen might be sending out joint Christmas cards with her new man Justin Theroux now, but not even that can stop the reminiscences from rolling in.
In an obituary for agent Sue Mengers that came out today, we get yet another tidbit on that relationship that ended seven years ago. It’s included without elaboration at the end of a paragraph illustrating Mengers’ “softer side”:
But she had a soft, warm side; she was a yenta who loved fixing people up, in work and in love. If a match struck, she would urge the woman, “We have to close the deal.” After Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie, Mengers told me that she advised her beloved Jen to ask Brad for some of his sperm.
Wait, what? I would like to know more about this warm, soft, advice Mengers gave to Jen to impregnate herself with Brad’s baby batter. Wasn’t part of the reason they broke up that Jen wasn’t too keen on kids? How did Jen react to this insane advice? Did she, um, ask him? We’ll probably never know, as Mengers is dead. One of many sad things about obituaries is you can’t ask follow-up questions.
