Some people (including myself) believe it's very important to keep your work life and your personal life separate. So when celebrity couples decide to pair up and star in a movie with each other, I find it to be a bad idea. It's just too much togetherness. What are you going to talk about at the end of the day when you've been with each other the entire time? But apparently not everyone shares my concerns. In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, Brad Pitt discusses what it was like working with Angelina Jolie in Mr. & Mrs. Smith and thinks it would be a great idea to work with her again.
The actor describes the experience, saying "We had some good workshops beforehand. Had some good laughs and ideas. That was just a great collaboration that turned into a greater collaboration."" I'll say -- talk about a life-changing movie. Not sure if Jennifer Aniston would agree with that, but she may be a little biased. He goes on to say how it might be a good idea to ""collaborate"" with Jolie again, confessing, "We should be doing them together. That's what we should be doing. We should be doing everything together, and then we could work less. We could have more time off." But it would also mean that they'd both be away from their kids, which would be hard as well...unless they were in the film too. Perhaps a Cheaper By the Dozen spin-off? I really need to get these ideas patented.
And as if that wasn't enough to send J-Aniston isn't a fit of newly discovered rage, Brad also thought now would be a good time to open up to Parade magazine about how unhappy he was while being married to her. In the interview he states, "I spent the '90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony. I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic. It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn't living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't."" And giving the final twist to the knife in Jennifer's back, he comments on his adoration for Angelina (aka: The Other Woman), saying, ""One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She is such a great mom. Oh, man, I'm so happy to have her.""
Anyone else notice how convenient it is that these three always feel like opening up about their kooky little love triangle, soap opera relationship when one of them has a new movie coming out? So now that Brad has Moneyball coming out, I guess it's his turn. I can respect the PR stint to an extent, but let's try something new people. That was so 2005.
