While Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie went through their red carpet paces as king and queen of the red carpet at the Golden Globes awards ceremony in L.A. on Jan. 11 — kissing, cuddling and demonstrating their affection to the benefit of peers and fans — the ex Mrs. Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, spent the first awards show weekend of 2009 conspicuously out of sight, stepping out only to attend a Beverly Hills charity fund-raiser for Feeding America on Jan. 9.
But while the trio may go out of their way to avoid each other in public, they seem to have no problem confronting each other head-on in interviews. Indeed, rather than refrain from the topic, Brad, Angelina and Jennifer seem obsessed with discussing their infamous Bermuda love triangle and each’s personal version of when Brad and Angie first hooked up. So, we gotta ask, Who’s telling the truth?
Brad, 45, is the most recent pot-stirrer. "What people don’t understand is that we filmed [Mr. & Mrs. Smith] for a year," he says in the Feb. issue of W Magazine. "We were still filming after Jen and I split up. Even then it doesn’t mean there was some kind of dastardly affair. There wasn’t. I’m very proud of the way it was handled. It was respectful."
Might want to check your calendar Brad! He and Jen, 39, announced their split in a jointly issued statement on Jan. 7, 2005, just days after they returned from their trip to Anguilla. But Mr. & Mrs. Smith wrapped principal photography on May 5, 2004! Re-shoots went well into the summer, but even they were completed long before Brad and Jen separated.
If Angelina, 33, was ever obtuse about her feelings on the matter, she cleared things up when she told the New York Times last Oct. 15, "Not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love."
And then there’s Jen’s infamous quote in the Dec. issue of GQ in which she said, "I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she [Angelina] couldn’t wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool."
