Ever since Webster’s dictionary changed the definition of “marriage” to read, “is a lie and a fucking sham,” in response to Brangelina divorcing, both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have pretty much only talked about their break-up through statements and lawyers. Team Brad committed an unholy act when they accused Team Angie of causing damage to their kids by making the details of their train wreck custody fight public. Team Angie accused Team Brad of not wanting the public to learn the terrifying truth about him. But last month, both sides finally agreed to make the details of their custody fight private and promised to keep their shank fighting behind closed doors. Things have been quiet until this past weekend when Angie did an interview with the BBC and was asked about Brad’s alleged drunk mess antics on that private plane.
Angie was in Cambodia with her children for the premiere of her new movie First They Killed My Father. She talked about the movie during an interview with Yalda Hakim of the BBC, and Yalda asked her about what happened on the plane and also asked her how she’s doing. When Yalda brought up the divorce, Angie didn’t explode into a rage and vow to destroy Brad Pitt as Maleficent horns grew out of her head and green smoke swirled around her. That didn’t happen. Angie got sad and emotional, and at one point, I thought she was going to break out into Family from Dreamgirls.
“I don’t want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and we are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it.
Many, many people find themselves in this situation, My whole, my family, we’ve all being through a difficult time. My focus is my children, our children. And my focus is finding this way through. As I said, we are and forever will be a family. That is how I am coping. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer.”
Angie still doesn’t have a publicist, apparently, but I’m sure she okay’d that question beforehand. Because if that question was just sprung on Angie out of nowhere, I’m sure her kids would’ve tackled Yalda and the camera person and erased the tape. They’re trained to do that.
And when Yalda asked Angie what she usually wants to do when first waking up in the morning, she got dangerously close to going full ScarJo by screaming, “I am barely holding it together as a single working mom!”
“Get through the day. It’s been a difficult few months. Right now I’m going through a moment where there’s just, everybody’s in my room. Two hamsters and two dogs and two children at the moment. It’s wonderful. So usually I just wake up trying to figure out who’s going to get the dog out, who’s gonna start the pancakes and did anybody brush their teeth.”
I know it’s a sin to accuse a saint of lying, but she’s lying about shit being chaotic in the morning. Captain Maddox obviously has the child army in check and I’m sure she wakes up to find every one of her kids standing on their spot in the pancake assembly line.
