It's time, everyone. We know it's so easy to bring up what happened between Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston whenever anyone talks about them or writes about them. But, c'mon. This feud or rivalry or whatever you want to call it with Jen and Angelina needs to be dead and buried.
Why? Glad you asked:
1. It's been nine years.
Yep. It's been nine years since Brad and Jen divorced. As in, almost a decade. Why are we still talking about something that happened nearly a decade ago? Well, we did just bring up Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah's couch in 2005 because he was so in love with Katie Holmes. But that was for nostalgia's sake. Also, that was an insane situation.
2. They are both happily married and/or engaged to other men.
In case you missed the big news (if so, how did you do that? Teach us your ways): Brad and Angelina are now married! And Jen has been engaged toJustin Theroux since 2012. That doesn't exactly scream: "I'm still thinking about my ex-husband!" or "I'm still thinking about my man's ex-wife!" does it?
3. It's insulting to Jen and Angie.
Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie are strong, beautiful and fascinating women. Why does a feud from nine years ago still seem to be the most important thing about either of them?
4. It's insulting to Brad and Justin.
Seriously. How would you like if it you were constantly compared to the person your girlfriend/wife was with before? The more the feud is brought up, the more we are saying that Brad and Jen are more important than Justin and Jen and Brad and Angie. Can't we all just focus on how hot they both are?! We can focus on other things, too, but mostly...they're both super attractive.
5. There are much more important things we can talk about regarding Jen and Angie.
Like their careers. Or all their philanthropic efforts. Or literally anything else.
6. This can't be healthy for their children.
It's probably not great for Brad and Ang's children and Justin and Jen's future children to grow up in a world where everyone keeps bringing up an upsetting and uncomfortable situation involving their parents.
7. It's sexist.
Last time we checked, there was a man involved with what happened back in 2005. So why does Jen and Angie get the brunt of the gossip?
8. They've moved on.
They are with other people. They've moved on. So should everyone else.
But if you still need your famous couples fix, here are some other adorable celeb pairings you can obsess over:
• Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
• Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi
• Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
• Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
• Alison Brie and Dave Franco
• Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka
• Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
• Beyoncé and Jay Z
• Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde
• Matt Bomer and Simon Halls
Yay for love and moving on!
