Jennifer Aniston reacted with dismay when she learned about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s 60-page spread for W magazine.
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt would have celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary on July 29. However, their marriage only lasted for five years, and many believed Angelina Jolie was part to blame. So, Mirror revisited the things that happened between the trio after Aniston and Pitt’s split.
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt right after split
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt announced their split in 2005, shortly after he started filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith with Angelina Jolie. When the couple announced their separation, they said there was no third party, but some fans were not convinced.
After their split, Pitt and Jolie posed for a 60-page spread for W magazine entitled Domestic Bliss. It was a collaboration between Pitt and photographer Steven Klein which also fueled rumors that he had an affair with Jolie.
Pitt and Jolie were portrayed as a passionate husband and wife who enjoy a domesticated life with their kids.
The pictures included Pitt carrying Jolie to bed and the duo dancing cheek to cheek. It also featured a racy shot with Pitt lying topless and Jolie climbing on top of him.
Jennifer called Brad insensitive
At the time, Jennifer Aniston was due for an interview with Vanity Fair and was asked about her take regarding Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s photoshoot.
Aniston said she was not aware that Pitt conceptualized the project. She said he was free to do whatever he wanted because they were no longer together.
“Is it odd timing? Yeah. But it’s not my life,” Aniston said.
“He makes his choices. He can do—whatever. We’re divorced, and you can see why.”
She also hinted about Pitt’s insensitivity when she spoke further. Aniston stressed that Pitt was not “mean-spirited,” but he lacked the “sensitivity chip.”
“I can also imagine Brad having absolutely no clue why people would be appalled by it. Brad is not mean-spirited; he would never intentionally try to rub something in my face. In hindsight, I can see him going, ‘Oh – I can see that that was inconsiderate.’ But I know Brad. Brad would say, ‘That’s art!'” Aniston added.
“There’s a sensitivity chip that’s missing,” she added bluntly.
