Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie divorce discussed by Chelsea Handler
On Wednesday, Handler joined the bevy of late-night hosts joking about the end of Brangelina, with a scathing bit of commentary on their relationship. “Brad and Angelina always said they wouldn’t get married until everyone could get married,” Handler, who is friends with Pitt’s ex Jennifer Aniston, said. “And I always said I wouldn’t get married until they got divorced, so I’m officially accepting proposals. I’m ready.”
There has been ample gossip and hearsay about the reasons for the split, and Handler isn’t surprised at all.
“There are rumors that part of the problem was that Brad was allegedly drinking and smoking too much weed. I wonder why he would need to self-medicate,” she continued. “Maybe because he could have been spending the last 12 years at Lake Como hanging out with George Clooney and Matt Damon, instead of being stuck in a house with 85 kids speaking 15 different languages. Oh yeah, because he married a f—ing lunatic, that’s why.”
After her strong take on the situation, the host says she’s moving on — kind of.
“But we should all respect their privacy during this very difficult time,” she said. “So this will be the last time I speak of this on TV. You can follow me on Twitter.”
Chelsea can be streamed on Netflix, with new episodes being released on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
