Jimmy Kimmel showed several tabloid covers during his opening monologue on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!. "There are a lot of important and life-threatening and world changing things going on lately; sometimes it seems like more than ever. But none of them are as foundation shaking as the news we received about Brad and Angelina today," the comedian joked. "As I'm sure you've heard, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, and of course, all the celebrity gossip magazines are claiming victory. You know, they broke this story. They broke this story every week for the last 11 years over and over and over again—until finally, it came true."
While it's "sad news" for Brangelina, it's also "great news for Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift, who now don't have to be on those covers anymore," he joked. "Apparently the reason they're getting divorced is she talked about fight club, and [Pitt] specifically asked her not to do that."
