1. They weren't even together in 1997. Brad was not even married to Jen then.
     
  2. ^now I want to see that photo!
     
  3. I think she was making a joke that AJ doesn't laugh very often.

    She appeared eating/body disordered long before those surgeries. I recall speculation long before that as to whether she was anorexic or not, and so on.

    Also, please don't make those sorts of generalities as to what "anyone" would feel or experience, even though I know you meant well as a "devil's advocate". You can't assume to know what Angie feels about her surgeries, or does not, or whether they play a part in her current state, or not. I won't say that having those preventative surgeries is not hard on many, nor will I pretend to speak for all who have done so, but I have had a preventative double mastectomy, and my tubes only removed (not ovaries at this point due to my particular risk/no incidence of ovarian cancer in my family and some research indicating many ovarian cancers start in tubes) and it was actually empowering, rather than "destructive" to me, to know I had taken steps that would reduce me having the same deadly fate as my mother, her mother, and her mother, and so on. I feel fortunate to have had choices they did not. It was not a "battle" to get those surgeries (it was an informed choice), and I don't feel my beauty has "faded" because of having them, either.
     
  5. Pitt has a very successful production company. She always seemed like a minimalist considering.
     
  6. Good for you for having those surgeries and possibly saving your life by doing so. I don't know if that had any impact on your beauty but it's major surgery so I'm sure it would have been traumatic physically at the time.

    As far as Angelina, I still think she has a beautiful face. She's in her forties now so in addition to her being extremely thin, we all lose some fat in our faces as we age.
     
  7. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder :smile: Like most women, I think Angelina looked beautiful when she became a mom for the first time. Then it did radiate from within. I take that back about being beautiful with Brad. Not to say she wasn't in love with him. I don't think she gave a sh*t about Jen and I think she loved the attention. Also not too say she didn't love being a mom after her first child, but as a mother of twins myself- that just took a little bit of wind out of my sails. I think it did for Angelina too.
     
  8. we don't know what their relationship was about but this is what I think. I think Brad was blown away by her sexy persona combined with the adoption/humanitarian work. I think she was aspirational for him. For her, I don't know if she was in love or if she liked the idea of being half of a super couple.
    Seems like Brad was really a better match with Jen - two pretty normal people. I remember seeing the poster for the movie Mr & Mrs Smith and how stunning Brad and Angie looked together. I think maybe it was like a proverbial lightening bolt for him.

  10. I think she likes the idea of having the "sexist man alive" (not my personal opinion, but that's how the media titled Brad back then. He's not my type.) with her. Plus, the fact that he's leaving another pretty "ultimate girl next door" (also what the media said about Jen back then) for her. I think she likes the idea of winning, getting attention, and having all the things in the world.

    And Brad? I think he's a meat head for leaving his wife. I despise infidelity. That's why. Of course, AJ is totally stunning and she has this "predator/dangerous/panther-like" vibe with the fact that she's so kind and dedicated with all the adoption and humanitarian works. What an enticing combination. Not really a surprise that he'll feel bewitched by the total package. Still, what he did is a total douche. And what she/they did together is completely classless.
     
  11. I'm beginning to think Pitt is one of those people for whom there is no good match... perhaps Pitt and Jen were really good at taking golden couple pictures but I recall tons of stories about how he wasn't happy... and really when you consider Aniston and who she seems to be I think it's better that they're split.

    I think there's an edge to Pitt that probably fit well with Jolie for a time but ultimately there may be something eternally restless about him. There was an interview his brother did where he said one of the characters that came closest to Pitt's actual personality was the one from the River runs through it... if that's true Pitt's probably a handful to deal with.

  12. Add to that their hectic lifestyle with all those overly ambitious life goals of saving the world and what not.

    There remains one truth... no matter what people say you can't do everything and have everything at the same time.

  13. Pitt is probably one of those types who has this black hole in him and nothing will ever make him happy. I dated someone like this years ago and never again. A lot of people with this type of personality are drawn to Hollywood because nothing makes them happy and they think the next big thing will, but it never does.

  14. I may be in the minority, but I don't think he's anything to call home about. He seems like the type of man that'll go where ever the wind blows him. It's as though he adopts the persona of whatever woman he's with at the time.

  15. Brad is A list rich nice handsome and has star power. She chose him because she was movin' on up like George and Weezy.
