Jennifer Aniston Calls Her Marriage To Brad Pitt Awkward And I’m Like, ‘Challenge’

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt at the premiere of Troy in New York October 2004I’m not sure what I’m reading right now, but if I understand this interview correctly, Jennifer Aniston is saying that her marriage to Brad Pitt was ‘awkward’. GIRL LET ME GO AHEAD AND DISAGREE BECAUSE HAVE YOU SEEN HIM?!? Sure, I have exactly zero personal experience in this field, but I have gazed upon Brad’s face and I have not found it lacking. Plus, your marriage was one of the formative events of my young life, so please don’t destroy my childhood by acting like it was built on a lie.

Jen spoke with Parade recently about how totally awesome her life has been lately, now that according to headlines, she’s slightly less alone and slightly less barren in the arms of her fiance, Justin Theroux. Obviously her life can’t be anywhere close to actually enjoyable, since there’s no child in it, but they wanted to know if there was anything that she knows now, at forty-four, that she didn’t know at age twenty-five.

“That there’s nothing to worry about — although I don’t think I had a care in the world at 25, either. That all started in my thirties, my awkward phase.”

I’m sorry, WHAT. I’m gonna stop you right there because I don’t know if you know this, but you were married to Brad during that period and it was GLORIOUS. You got married in 2000 when you were thirty-one, and every moment of it was fabulous because the two of you were beautiful and sun-kissed and well-matched. And I refuse to believe otherwise, because I watched it from the outside and that’s all the information I need. Plus you were filming Friends during that time, so your life could not have been better. I am the expert on these things.

“I’m a little bit of a late bloomer! But it doesn’t matter to me because it just gets better. They do say youth is wasted on the young, but I feel just as youthful now – if not more – than I did when I was 25. I’m more in my body; I’m more in my mind. Life is full. Life is wonderful. We’re very, very fortunate.”

You think your life is better now? You like things better now that people are STILL talking about Team Aniston vs. Team Jolie and speculating on your baby bump and putting you in movies like Meet The Millers? That is what you like? Girl, you have a way different idea of your life than I do, and I’ma need you to fix that post-haste and do it my way.

    I’ve enjoyed a lot of Jennifer Aniston movies but can any of them really compete with 10 seasons of Rachel Green on Friends? No. They cannot.

    Way to put words in her mouth that she never said! I mean as you poke fun of the tabloid narrative around her, you added right to it. Where did she say her “awkward” phase had anything to do with Pitt?? How about her awkward phase was more likely due to the major life changes she went through in her 30s – including a hugely public divorce and the resulting media hurricane it’s placed her in? Or maybe the major transition from Friends ending to her moving full-time to films? Honestly, while you snark at other media outlets’ treatment of her, you are contributing right to that same misogynistic narrative yourself!

      Misogynistic? I don’t think so.

  • Carabella1

    Love the snark!

  • Shut up Aniston!

    Aniston needs to shut her fat gob. She’s hawking her hair products and she knows the best way to get publicity is to reference Pitt – however obliquely it’s done. She’s simply trying to stir up publicity and to get back at Pitt for saying – 4 years ago! – that he was sick of himself in the late ’90s and he thought his marriage had a lot to do with that, that he was trying to find a movie about an interesting life but wasn’t living one himself. Aniston knew when she married Pitt that it was “an experiment’ and a “business merger” – words they BOTH used in 20002001 to describe their marriage. Why anybody was surprised the experiment failed is beyond me. Yet here she is, 9 years after getting dumped, still referencing her marriage to Pitt. No wonder it’s looking less and less likely that Theroux will add a wedding band to the engagement ring that Aniston purchased herself (the man has no money folks, so where do you think he got $500K to buy her a ring?).

      he has no money? His net worth is only 4.5 to 10.5 million. You’re an idiot.

    • Janicelji

      I sure would like to have “no money” like that.

  • GobacktoschoolAlexis

    The 5 minutes I wasted on this stupid article, full of crap, is 5 minutes I’d love to get back.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I feel the same way after reading your comment.

  • BEGreen777

    me me me me me me meme me me

    It’s super easy to feel “youthful” and have “nothing to worry about” at 44 when you’ve got a cool $300 mil in the bank. I know women that age who are still laid off because of the recession, losing their homes to foreclosure because no one wants to hire anyone over 40 anymore. Celebs like Aniston are just so out of touch with reality.

  • dorisjean23

    yeah, jen and brad never looked at each other like angelina and brad.

  • Making it 29

    Terrible, terrible article. Leave out the personal opinions and it would have been an acceptable article. But, your opinion is so skewed and WAY out in left field that I was disgusted at having read such nonsense

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      What did you find unacceptable about it?
