The Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie love triangle will always be one of the juiciest scandals in Hollywood history. While initially, Brad and Jennifer were touted as the American Sweethearts, Mr. & Mrs. Smith changed their lives completely. The couple eventually divorced in 2005 with Brangelina taking over the world. In April 2005, paparazzi had a field day as the couple's first-ever pictures surfaced from their Kenya trip along with son Maddox Jolie-Pitt. The trio looked like a happy family which definitely shook the world and even Jennifer Aniston to the core.

In an explosive tell-all interview with Vanity Fair in 2006, Jennifer spoke with utmost honestly over how truly "shocked" she was to see the picture of Brangelina frolicking on the beach with Maddox in Africa. "I would be a robot if I said I didn’t feel moments of anger, of hurt, of embarrassment," Aniston confessed. Moreover, the 51-year-old actress shared that the pictures weren't the highlights of her year. "Who would deal with that and say, 'Isn't that sweet! That looks like fun!'? But shit happens. You joke and say, 'What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.'"

Talking about how she had earned a "superpower shield," Jennifer also spoke about what went wrong in her marriage with Brad. "I don’t think anybody in a marriage gets to a point where they feel like 'We’ve got it!' You’re two people continually evolving, and there will be times when those changes clash. There are all these levels of growth—and when you stop growing together, that’s when the problems happen," Aniston revealed to Vanity Fair.

At this point who cares about Jennifer Aniston, Angelina and Brad better rethink the whole divorce , What it does to their children forever ! The pain they will always carry. It doesn’t go away for the children, I have watched my children for years , grow and never heal. That’s on the two adults.

I've always thought Maddox would be the thorn in Pitt's side. He's always seemed to be very possessive of Jolie, and not in a good way. Even Jolie has stated how super close they are and that she sometimes puts his needs before the others. Maddox is weird, I have always thought so.

I believe Brad would Admit he wasn’t fair to Jennifer. I believe he had a drug and/or drinking problem and Angelina has admitted she had unhealthy message from her father who cheated on Angelina’s mother. The Apple doesn’t fall from the tree. Throw in the Hollywood life style and you have it.

Brad Pitt was fair and he was classy. He didn't call her out over her decades long trashing from her & her PR flacks. She cheated on him and he let her have a free pass basically. He ended a bad marriage and moved on, she spent years bullying him with false claims

It is a fact that those African pictures of him and Angelina came out several months AFTER he broke up from Aniston. It is a fact that both of his exes are also drug & alcohol users. Why are her fans and PR fixers downvoting the truth? Both Jolie and Aniston have thrown Pitt under the bus.

Those Kenyan beach pics came out nearly 3 months after they separated. Brad Pitt denied an affair and Aniston has spent years attacking him. Aniston is a heavy drinker and smoker. Jolie is a hardcore addict. Stop exaggerating his substance usage to vilify him. He did not cheat and Aniston did not tell the truth about everything

Aniston's Vanity Fair interview was not brutally honest and she attacked & lied about Brad Pitt to paint herself as the victim. This fake narrative has not stopped. Pitt defended her in 3 interviews, including on-camera by saying kids was not the reason and he even got defensive over Aniston in the GQ interview. She repays him by calling him diabolical & shady. Her friends lied to claim that Pitt did not want kids and Aniston did. He was on camera breaking down about wanting a family and always loved kids. The Kenyan beach pics were 3 months after they announced their separation. That was proof of Brad moving on, NOT cheating. She was caught making out with Matt in 2004, a year before they split up.

Aniston cheated on Brad Pitt with Matt LeBlanc in 2004. She is not a victim. Her relationship with Justin Theroux began as an affair. Her team buries pics and evidence of this. Then she has proceeded to smear and vilify Brad & Angelina for 15 years. Pitt separated from Aniston before embarking on a romance with Angelina. Then Kenyan Beach pics came out 3 months after he announced his breakup with Aniston. That is NOT proof of cheating. She publicly humiliated and degraded him with one manipulative interview after another. The W shoot was to promote their film and he & Jolie did not have kids together at the time. It was about the farce of an unhappily married couple in the 1960's. Aniston has posed with many co-stars before.

The reply function is not working but I need to address some certain facts. Brad Pitt did not cheat on Jennifer Aniston and has denied this for 15 years. He clarified there was no affair when the media ran with two misquotes and chose to ignore their official statements. Aniston is planting these stories and arranging hate comments against Brad & Angelina. This has been going on for far too long. Enough.

"No one from the outside of a marriage can break up a marriage unless one in that marriage wants to leave. That's just fact." Wrong. Don't confuse *your* opinion with fact. Cheaters cheat because they WANT to. "Happily" married people cheat bc the strange is there. Don't get it twisted. Angie has a loooong standing history of man poaching, including sleeping with her MOTHER'S boyfriends.

For those commenting on Jolie's humanitarian efforts, personally I don't think she is as pure as the driven snow with her intentions. Narcissists parade their virtue for the attention (supply) it brings them. She is a nasty piece of work (or maybe some people think is just great that she s***t with her mothers boyfriend) and Brad got what he deserved for being stupid enough to go there.

I think Brad wanted kids and Jennifer didn't at the time so he moved on with someone who did.

Yeah you can see from the photos on the beach what happened. Brad Pitt fell in love with that little boy. He wanted a family and so did Angelina. Jennifer did not want kids, she says different but actions speak louder than words. To this day, does Jennifer Aniston have kids? Nope, no she does not. If Brad had stayed with her he would have a childless existence. He went with Angie and he has 6 kids. It was about the kids, it was ALWAYS about the kids.

That is a lie. If she really was so adamant about being a mom, she would have adopted or used a surrogate like many of her peers.

Why does a woman have to go for a married man??? So many men out there period. She should have self respect for herself. Brad Pitt should have divorced Jennifer first. To me Angelina has tons of issues going way back which is not good. Both are actress"s that have made money period. Its not about talent or charity work. It's about respect a person's marriage and that's it. If a man's single and free then go for it.

Brad Pitt did end his marriage with Aniston before embarking on a relationship with Angelina. Aniston planted this same garbage to the UK rags and now she is doing it to the Indian rags after running with this trash for 15 years to the US media. Aniston is not a humanitarian and Pitt's charity work gets no respect.

Do not know what box you live in but Aniston is one of the top A listers in Hollywood. Pitt is as much to be blamed how he handled the breakup. No one deserves to be humiliated and cheated on. It is a known fact that Jolie seduced Pitt on the set of the movie. She intentionally choice to be naked in a lovemaking scene that Pitt himself admitted he was shocked she didn't have the body cover on in bed when he got in to film the scene. He should of ended marriage before he became emotionally and physically involed I can not wait for one or all her kids to write a tell all mommy weirdest book. She went out of her way to hurt another women by doing pictures of a fake family on Vanity Fair.What was the purpose of that photo shoot . Aniston handled the entire situation with Class. Jolie also cries her father cheated on her mom bla bla ..yet did same thing to another women. No excuse!!
