Angelina Jolie Finally Reveals What Really Ended Her Marriage With Brad Pitt

From 2005 to 2016, the pair we affectionately dubbed “Brangelina” were the most-talked-about couple in Hollywood. From their flawless looks to their Oscar-winning talent, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were thought to be the epitome of #RelationshipGoals.

But then the utterly unexpected happened just two years after the pair finally got hitched in 2014. Jolie filed for divorce and left us all wondering what it was that destroyed their once solid relationship. Unfortunately, Jolie tends to keep any discussion about her kids and her relationship with ex-husband Brad Pitt entirely under wraps. So it is a rare event when she decides to open up about her personal life. Well, it turns out that she has decided to do just that in a recent podcast interview. You may know that Jolie has turned her hand to other projects including movie directing. One of the most recent movies that she worked on is First They Killed My Father which was released on Netflix last September. It turns out that the movie was pretty well received by the critics. So in a recent interview on The Hollywood Reporter‘s podcast Awards Chatter, she discussed the movie and a load of other juicy topics in great detail. Incredibly, Jolie even opened up about how her relationship with Brad Pitt broke down and contrary to what you may have thought, it had a little something to do with her double mastectomy amongst other things… Back in 2013, a then 37-year-old Angelina Jolie’s health problems were highly publicised. Her family has a history of breast cancer which really alarmed the mom-of-six, so she decided to get a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of developing the disease. Her own mother, Marcheline Bertrand, had breast cancer which she managed to fight, but, unfortunately, she later died from ovarian cancer. Jolie made the incredibly brave decision to undergo a preventive double mastectomy after finding out she had inherited the BRCA gene, a faulty gene which meant that she had an 87% chance of developing cancer. Just two years after the double mastectomy, doctors told Jolie that test results were showing signs of ovarian cancer in her system. As a result, she made the brave decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes surgically removed. At the time, it was reported that her husband, Brad Pitt, was nothing but supportive. However, we could never really know what was going on behind closed doors. According to the Maleficent actress, her health scares were putting an irrevocable strain on her marriage. “I’ve had many, many extraordinary very fortunate things happen and it’s also been many things over the years that had been challenging. So that wasn’t a particular time when I wrote it… I had my mastectomy right before I had Unbroken,” the actress revealed. “Over the span of that decade, I did lose my mother. I did have my mastectomy, and I did then have an ovarian cancer scare and have that surgery as well, and other things of course that happened in life that you go through.” In 2015, Jolie and Pitt worked together on the movie By The Sea in an attempt to “heal” their marriage which was threatening to break down. “A piece of art can be something that’s healing or something that’s difficult. I don’t know.” “I’m glad we did that film because we did explore something together,” she said. “Whatever it was maybe it didn’t solve certain things, but we did communicate something that needed to be communicated to each other.” “We had met working together and we worked together well… I wanted us to do some serious work together… I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate. In some ways it was, and in some ways, we learned some things.” “But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on and it wasn’t because of the [movie]. It was something that we were dealing… things happen for different reasons, and things… why did I write that exact piece? Why did we feel that way when we made it? I’m not sure.” Needless to say, Angelina Jolie has gone through a tough few years. Fearing for your health when you have young children must be incredibly difficult – especially if that ultimately leads to the breakdown of your marriage Unfortunately, anyone who knows anything about Jolie’s early life will be aware that she has had to contend with a great deal of emotional pain and numerous setbacks throughout her life. Check out her story in the video below: We wish Jolie, her children and, of course, Brad Pitt the best of luck for their future health and happiness.

Selena Gomez Sheds Tears Eating Hot Wings & Teases New Music On ‘The Tonight Show’ — Watch!

Published

on

Selena Gomez loves herself some spicy food, but not even her palate could handle the heat of the Hot Ones wing challenge!

The actress stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday night to promote her upcoming horror-comedy flick, The Dead Don’t Die. Sadly, the starlet almost had a near-death experience herself in one segment that featured her eating spicy AF wings with Jimmy Fallon.

The two put their taste buds to the test as Jimmy enlisted Hot Ones host Sean Evans to give them the treatment of his hit YouTube series, which shows him interviewing celebs as they chow down on hot wings. It’s a cruel, sadistic series that has grown in popularity over the past few years. Gomez had never heard about it, so she didn’t know what type of fresh hell she was in for.

Interestingly enough, the 26-year-old didn’t seem bothered by the first few rounds of sauces. She remained stoically poised while Jimmy immediately felt the heat and was reduced to barking like a dog.

But each round got progressively hotter over the course of the interview — and, eventually, Selena felt the heat, too.

It all went downhill after the pair sampled the sauce aptly called “Da Bomb,” which made the singer tear up as she exclaimed things like:

“This is horrible!”

“Why do you do this to people!?”

“I hate it!”

LOLz! Yikes!

Thankfully, with some encouragement from the audience (and the help of a milk fountain), the duo were able to complete the challenge. Watch them squirm (below)!

During cooler segments of her appearance, Selena sat down with Jimmy to discuss her new film, and reveal what Bill Murray kept whispering in her ear when they promoted it at the Cannes Film Festival last month.

The Bad Liar artist also teased her upcoming album, which she confirmed was “finished”!

Watch the rest of her Tonight Show interview (below)!

Keanu Reeves: Grief and loss, those things dont ever go away

Published

on

From Bill & Teds excellent dude to assassin John Wick, the actor has carved out a stellar career. But it hasnt come without personal tragedy

“Hey, Im Keanu, he introduces himself unnecessarily, of course, and yet very Keanu-ishly. Despite being so famous his surname has long been superfluous, Keanu Reeves has always given the impression of being utterly unaffected by his own celebrity. He is regularly described by his co-stars as kind (Winona Ryder) and humble (Laurence Fishburne) and it is easier to imagine him walking on the moon than knocking back champagne with other celebrities on a yacht in St Barts. After all, the most famous paparazzi photo ever taken of Reeves was of him sitting alone on a bench, eating a sandwich out of a plastic bag. Hard to imagine Leonardo DiCaprio doing that.

Ill sit anywhere you want me to. This OK? he says, taking a chair and offering me the sofa in the London hotel room where we meet. At just over 6ft, he is taller than I expected also unusual for an actor and dressed in a very Keanu outfit of dark shirt and trousers with sturdy boots. Despite being recently announced as the new face of the high fashion label Saint Laurent, Reeves has long been the patron saint of normcore, decades before it became a fashion statement. And I know this all too well because, from 199199, I had at least five posters of him on my bedroom walls modelling said look.

Should one ever meet ones teenage crush? Up until this week, Id assumed I was long past the point of being starstruck Im a 40-year-old woman, for Gods sake! But now here I am, sitting opposite Reeves, now 54, the beard more grizzled than in my posters and the forehead suspiciously smooth, but still, most definitely Keanu………………………………………………………………………”

George Clooney is done with ‘dumbf**kery’ in this PSA

Published

on

“In light of the UN’s dire warning about the Earth’s accelerating extinction rate, George Clooney has stepped up for a PSA against people and their “dumbfuckery.”

“Dumbfuckery is highly contagious, affecting the minds of even the most stable geniuses,” the actor joked on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night.

Focusing his attention on climate change, vaccinations, and the dinosaurs, it’s the kind of reminder that we shouldn’t need — but unfortunately do.”
