Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie are getting hitched

image002After logging a half-dozen years together, stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have decided to make it official.

The two are getting married this summer, Us magazine reports. An insider says it’ll be super exclusive, not a huge bash. Previously the pair had stated they would not wed until gay marriage became legal nationwide.

Pitt told USA Today that the couple’s six kids had been asking about whether they were ever going to get married. “It’s meaning more and more to them,” he told the newspaper in an interview earlier this year.

Jolie’s ex, Billy Bob Thornton,is in Atlanta at the moment, filming “Jayne Mansfield’s Car.” He appears to be enjoying the city and has been seen dining at Chops and hanging out at Whiskey Blue in recent days.

Pitt’s ex, Jennifer Aniston, was here a good bit last year, filming “Wanderlust.” She also  seemed to enjoy Atlanta and was seen frequently in the St. Regis wine bar.

Wonder if they’ll make the guest list?

I can’t decide if this is either the saddest or dumbest commentary on life as we exist.

I too like them as a couple. I love the dynamic of their family. I know a lot of people feel Jolie was a home wreaker. But, it should be obvious that Brad now having 6 kids and Jennifer still not having any, that having kids and rearing a family was something that was important to him. Futhermore,people getting married should probably discuss whether or not children will be a part of the union. I wish them forever happiness.

Wonder when they will plan their divorce. 6 years together and it takes the KIDS encouraging them b’c they didn’t have within themselves to marry. Seems like they are bowing to peer pressure … seeing they are KIDS themselves and not grown ups!

One thing we know will happen: as soon as they’re married, every gossip rag is going to have a sob story about Jennifer Anniston.

First of all, I don’t much care. I don’t care what Hollywood does as long as they keep their morals and politics away from my door, which they don’t. Second, it’s pathetic that they waited until their children asked for it; perhaps we should take note that somebody DOES care whether parents are married and there may be something amiss (amoral?) about parents not bothering to tie the knot. Third, their “protest” against the ban of gay marriage by not marrying is wasted; whether they marry or not has nothing to do with the legal status (or not) of gay marriage and conversely they present a worse status, as it were, by being parents without benefit of marriage than by any ban of gay marriage. They are NOT a good example of ANYthing, especially a committed set of married parents, and their protest is a joke in light of that. Fourth, they won’t stay married – few in Hollywood do – and they have a passel of children who will have to decide who belongs to who. Actually, doesn’t the oldest non-Pitt child still have Billy Bob Thornton as a legal father?

These people can act, but they’re also the most immoral people I’ve ever seen, nothing to envy or applaud there. They don’t value marriage before God which also makes Brad a hypocrite since he doesn’t believe in God so what’s the point?
In a nutshell, Jen is great, has a life and she should be glad she got out when she did. Frankly, them getting married…..she’s been through it all so I doubt it can hurt her anymore.

I will never understand the hatred ya’ll feel toward this couple. These are two people who are clearly devoted to their children and actually enjoy spending time with them. They’ve both had bad marriages, so I can certainly understand their view that a certificate is not what makes a union work, and is therefore, less important than the daily involvement being together requires. These are two people who have spent untold millions helping people the world over. Millions they didn’t have to give. These are two people who have devoted their time traveling to forgotten and abandoned places like Haiti, Kenya, Cambodia and New Orleans to help make other people’s lives better through awareness, programs, education and charity. Time they didn’t have to give. What have YOU done to make the world a better place – beyond passing judgement on celebrities you don’t even know?!

Mebbe, Angelina can beat out Madonna and try to adopt the rest of the world once they are married.

Seriously…it’s a good thing considering they have biological progeny.

I am sure those that worship the Hollywood liberal elite are crying with joy right about now! ;@

Those that wish to continue to trash Aniston are just pathetic. It is most likely that she is unable to have children given the fact that she keeps man hoping and hasn’t ended up with child.

Brad & Angelina are highly paid trash.

Spend millions to look charitable will produce multi millions. It is absolutely amazing that you celebrity stalkers can’t figure this crap out!

10th says … “@ notaracist: you wrote the truth…and Jennifer Anniston KNOWS it.”

At least JA doesn’t have to adopt the World AND steal someone’s husband to further her career. Props to Aniston, who most likely can’t have kids and is not a self absorbed narcarcist.

who cares?!

“I will never understand the hatred ya’ll feel toward this couple.”

Jen – just because MANY OF US don’t worship the ground this couple walks on like you do doesn’t mean the masses feel hatred. Hatred goes to demons like Casy Anthony that kill their children.

No one can STEAL another human being. (Well… not nowadays anyway) Pitt left Aniston because he wanted to and obviously because he was not happy in the relationship. I am so sick of women getting blamed for everything. If anyone’s a home wrecker, it would be Pitt.

Ouchhhhhhh

Wow – there is just hatred everywhere – this blog shows that is true.
They seem to be a lovely couple and great parents, while I’m sure that is easier with tons of money – kudos to them for all the good things they do around the world. They spend time and effort pointing the world toward good causes. They raise awareness about adoption and being good parents. Couldn’t we just divorce Jen out of the picture for once and for all? She didn’t want kids. She refused to have them because her career was more precious to her. Brad wanted kids and found Angelina. Can’t we just accept and be happy for those that made a choice to do what they wanted? Seems to me like all three did this!

Jennifer Aniston can’t have children. How can you be so hateful? Be careful, your hubby just might cut you out of the picture if you have a flaw!

I really had no opinion one way or the other until Brad brought one of their young kids to a Green Day concert in New Orleans in 2009 and was in our section. Young kids do NOT belong at a Green Day concert! While I love Billie Joe, he drops the F bomb every other word and even though they put on one of the best concerts I’ve seen (and it’s well over 200), Brad used bad judgment.

Where did you people get the impression that Jennifer Aniston couldn’t have children? She expressed her intent to have children naturally just this year. Take a look: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1355244/Jennifer-Aniston-says-WILL-baby-naturally-despite-frequent-adoption-rumours.html. It’s really strange how everybody remembers what happened back when Brad left Jen. It was my understanding that Jen was wrapping up “Friends” and that she and Brad were about to start a family when this whole debacle occurred. You may recall that Brad was off making “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” during the final season of Friends. (I even remember telling my husband at the time that — if I were Jen — I would be with Brad while he made that film.) Brad never said that he was involved in a bad marriage to Jen. He simply fell head over heels in love with Angelina and then broke the news to his wife. Does anybody remember that Brad and Jen were even seen walking hand-in-hand along a beach together just days before they announced that they were separating? Wow… People are so cruel and judgmental.
