Jennifer’s reaction to Angelina’s pregnancy
In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2006, Jennifer Aniston was asked about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s upcoming baby. The Friends alum got candid and emotional when the baby news came to her attention.
She was so emotional that she couldn’t speak, according to her interviewer, Leslie Bennets.
Aniston reportedly looked liked she had been stabbed in the heart. She cried after hearing the question. The interviewer understood that the topic was too painful for her to talk about.
“When I ask Aniston about that [the pregnancy rumours], she looks as if I’ve stabbed her in the heart,” Bennetts recalled.
“Her eyes well up and spill over. Several long minutes go by as the tears keep rolling down her cheeks; she bites her lip, seemingly unable to speak. Finally, she shakes her head; this subject is simply too excruciating to discuss.”
Aniston’s friend worried about her
A friend of Jennifer Aniston also spoke with the magazine and said she was worried about the actress learning about Jolie’s baby news.
“My worst fear is that Jen will have to face them having a baby together soon, because that would be beyond beyond painful,” said film producer Kristin Hahn.
