Jennifer Aniston didn’t hide her pain when she learned that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were dating shortly after their separation.
Jennifer Aniston was America’s sweetheart, while Brad Pitt was the Sexiest Man Alive. They were perfect for each other, but apparently, their marriage didn’t work. It wasn’t a happy ending, especially for the Murder Mystery star.
Jennifer Aniston called Angelina Jolie ‘uncool’
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt tied the knot in 2000 and divorced five years later. However, prior to their split, there were rumors that Pitt and Jolie fell in love while filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004.
In an interview with Vogue in 2008, the Maleficent star said that the film brought her and Pitt together. She added that they found a strange friendship and partnership, and in a matter of months, she realized that she couldn’t wait to get to work.
Jolie said that there was a lot of joy in whatever she and Pitt did together. She continued saying that there was a lot of “real teamwork” and added, “We just became kind of pair.”
Aniston wasn’t happy when she learned about Jolie’s interview because, at the time, Pitt was still married to her. So, when asked about it, The Morning Show star didn’t hide her disappointment and even went on calling Jolie “uncool.”
“There was stuff printed that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening,” Aniston said.
“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.”
Brad Pitt is insensitive
In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2005, Jennifer Aniston shared that she was horrified about the W magazine’s 60-page photo spread featuring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Even other people found it “insensitive” for Pitt to appear on the cover with Jolie shortly after his split from Aniston.
During the interview, Aniston said it was “odd timing.” She refused to get mad and excused her ex-husband, saying that he made his choices, and they were already divorced at the time.
Aniston said Pitt was not mean-spirited and surely did not intend to rub something in her face. She also knew that Pitt had no clue why people would be appalled by the cover.
“But I know Brad. Brad would say, ‘That’s art!’” Aniston said about her ex-husband. She then rolled her eyes and added, “There’s a sensitivity chip that’s missing.”
How’s Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie today

Pitt and Aniston are romantically linked again by their fans who were hoping to see them together. However, sources close to them said that they are not back together and are just good friends. Meanwhile, Pitt and Jolie continue to co-parent their six children.
