Jennifer Aniston has spoken previously about Angelina Jolie and said that she had no desire to feud with the woman that stole her husband after five years of marriage
Jennifer Aniston once spoke out in praise of Angelina Jolie despite the bad blood that had surfaced due to her ‘stealing’ Brad Pitt. The 51-year-old former Friends actress spoke in loving terms about Angelina’s acting and said that it was ‘silly’ if they ended up feuding over Brad. Jennifer had been married to Brad for five years when, in 2005, he hooked up with Angelina on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Brad subsequently divorced Jen as Hollywood’s ‘golden couple’ were no more and he went on to have a long relationship with Angelina, that brought six children. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about 2014 film, Unbroken, in which Ange starred, Jennifer said: “I mean, that movie is so beautiful and wonderful, and she did such a gorgeous job.” The Morning Show star has also looked to shut down rumours that she was ‘feuding’ with Angelina after the break-up of her marriage with Brad.
Jen and Ange were both at the Critics’ Choice Awards and many commentators at the time said that they had ‘deliberately’ avoided each other. Jennifer was having none of this and hit out at the idea that they were at loggerheads.
She said at the time: “I think it’s time people stop with the petty s*** and just start celebrating great work and stop with the petty kind of silliness. “I think that’s slowly coming to an end, I really do. It’s just tiresome and old.
“It’s like an old leather shoe. Let’s buy a new pair of shiny shoes.” In 2008 was the last time that Jennifer has gone on record about Angelina and she labelled her “uncool”.
She said that in reference to Angelina saying that she fell in love with Brad on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, while he was still married to Jen. Speaking to Vogue at the time, Jennifer said: “There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening.
“I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. “That stuff about how she couldn’t wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool.”
