Brad Pitt Says He Had To “Pretend” During Marriage to Jen Aniston

Sometimes we wonder why celebrities talk about their breakups at all, especially when their exes are, shall we say, often portrayed as America’s spinster aunt? In an interview with Parade magazine about his upcoming movie Moneyball, Brad Pitt talked about his marriage to Jennifer Aniston. “It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself,” Pitt reveals. “I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.” Somewhere Jen is gripping Justin Theroux‘s hand so tight, she is slowly yet sexily cutting off his circulation.

Just in case the comparison between Jen and Angelina Jolie wasn’t explicit enough yet, Pitt has a little gushing to do. “One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She is such a great mom. Oh, man, I’m so happy to have her,” Brad explains, before scoffing, “”I mean, how many stories have you read that aren’t true, stories about me and Angie being married or fighting or splitting up?” Hmmm, so maybe Brad brought up an actual true story about his failed marriage to Aniston…just to distract us from his current relationship. We see what you did there, Pitt.

Has The Cameron Diaz And A-Rod Fairy Tale Come To An End?

It seems like only yesterday they were hand-feeding each other buttery snacks at the Super Bowl, but new rumors hint at an alleged Cameron Diaz A-Rod break-up. US Weekly cites a source supposedly close to Alex Rodriguez, who claims, “They broke up recently.” But…but who will spot them for their 17 -hours-a-day gym sessions? This is so humiliating!

“She’s very busy with her career,” the same source says about Diaz, adding. “And he’s had injuries and wants to focus on his game. They’re dedicated professionals.” Allegedly Cameron and A-Rod were planning to move in together back in February, but a lot of things can change between two people in a few months. Not the similarity between their insane abs and a sheet of pure steel, but you know, emotional things. Call us skeptical, but Cameron and A-Rod split up back in 2010 only to eventually reunite, so we think this relationship might still be going strong. Not as strong as both of their sinewy forearms, of course, but you see where we’re going with this.

Elisabetta Canalis Opens Up About George Clooney Split

Now that George Clooney and Stacey Keibler are reportedly dating, Clooney’s most recent ex Elisabetta Canalis is taking it upon herself to brush the sadness Cheetos off her loneliness Snuggie and talk to the press about him. “I have always seen cold and controlled men as the right ones for me,” Canalis allegedly told Italian magazine Chi. “You have to accept that Prince Charming who is coming to save you is not going to happen — it works against you.” Plus, to know that from here on out, you’ll always be in some way dating down? It can’t be a pretty prospect.

Despite having split from George pack in June and picked up a spot on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars, Canalis still sounds epically bummed about their break-up.  “At the end of the day I have always seen the end of my relationships as a personal failure. There is nothing ever pretty is saying goodbye,” she says, explaining “I’m a bit of a tomboy, but when it comes to love I am a doormat. I’m looking for men who can give me security.” Truly, how can Elisabetta bear to even look at a man without a yacht now? But seriously, tell us how!

What’s Up With Kate Bosworth’s Hair?

We’re so used to seeing Kate Bosworth perfectly put together in couture that this was a bit of a shock for us! The actress was seen sporting weird turquoise dip-dyed hair at a Coldplay concert yesterday at UCLA. This has got to be for a role, right? Is this her way of acting out after breaking up with Alexander Skarsgard? ‘Cause if we ever broke up with someone who looked like that, we’d be tearing our hair out, not dyeing it. Or is this Kate’s version of latent punk predilections coming out into the fore? Call us square, but we’re hoping it’s the former. What say you FAB nation?

Jennifer Lopez Gives Vanity Fair Her First Post-Split Interview

Vanity Fair have got Jennifer Lopez‘s first interview since her split with husband Marc Anthony for their September issue. More importantly, they’ve got her on the cover and inside the magazine looking ridiculously caliente!  Of her relationship with Marc she reveals, “I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer. We actually work great together, and he was always very supportive. Together we could make magic — and we did. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”

She doesn’t directly address why exactly they broke up but she does talk about where she’s coming from even after a couple of failed marriages behind her. Jennifer told the magazine, “I’m a hopeless romantic and passionate person when it comes to love. It’s not that I didn’t love myself before. Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself—if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now.” It’s good to hear her speaking out finally but we’re not going to lie to you, we want the deets. We’re still wondering what went wrong!

Kat Von D Blogs Away The Pain, Declares “I Suck”

See, the internet isn’t just another means for celebrities to accidentally show us their sexy times/secret homophobia. This wacky series of tubes can also be a force of good, like in Kat Von D’s blog post about her break-up with Jesse James and storming off Good Morning L.A this morning. In the post titled “What can I say? I suck,” Von D poured her surprisingly eloquent heart out about her split from her fiance, devastating house fire and continuing recovery from addiction. “Today was really hard for me. And no ones to blame other than myself,” Kat apologizes. “Never planned on walking away from this relationship, let alone the timing of things.” Celebrities: they aren’t just cyborgs made out of collagen and tattoo ink. They also have human, collagen-filled, tattoo-covered hearts.

As for all of us rolling our eyes at her diva move on live TV, Kat Von D’s Twitter tells a different story. “My apologies if I’ve offended anyone this morning-For the record: I did not storm off – I politely left w notice when GDLA broke their word,” the reality star tweeted. “As if we’ve forgotten how to love, so easily we resort to blame, criticism, and ridicule of one another… Today, I admit defeat. Xo.” Wow, really makes you think…that this might be some sort of genius marketing scheme for the new season of L.A. Ink. If so, well-played you crazy cyborg!

Alexander Skarsgard And Kate Bosworth Split

Unlike the vampire’s sexy, sexy curse, true love doesn’t always last forever. US Weekly reports that Alexander Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth broke up, meaning your fantasies of Eric taking you as his immortal bride are one tiny step closer to coming true!

Having dated for almost two years, the couple apparently called it quits without us knowing about it. “It was very mutual,” a source claims. “And it happened a while ago.” According to another source, the True Blood star is single and already mingling, flirting with fans at the Film District party at San Diego Comic-Con. “He’s single,” the source reports, “and he is loving the attention!” Oh, and did we mention Alexander Skarsgard’s doctorate that he just received? It’s like he was engineered to be your boyfriend. Now all you have to do is dispatch Sookie, and all your crazy dreams will be realized!

Elisabetta Canalis “Down In The Dumps” Over Clooney, Says Her Mom

What would be worse then suddenly losing the love of your life plus your free ticket on any super yacht in the Northern Hemisphere? How about having all that happen, then having both of your parents talk to Vanity Fair about it?  Elisabetta Canalis break-up from George Clooney came two years after they started dating, and according to Elisabetta Canalis’ mom Bruna, her bambina “is very down in the dumps” about the split. As Mama Canalis tells Italian Vanity Fair. “I’ve spoken to her, and she is very sad, but these things happen.” Sometimes George Clooney dumps you, sometimes your mother tells the planet how you’re moping around your room in a filthy old bathrobe. These things happen.

Of course, it wouldn’t be that sad unless Elisabetta’s father Cesare Canalis also shared his thoughts on his adult daughter’s break-up, so of course he did. “He certainly would have made a good son-in-law,” Cesare said of Clooney. “But it’s my daughter who has to decide.” Padre Canalis’ comments suggest that George Clooney’s marriage phobia could have played a part in their split. The other factor? Having potential in-laws that share the intimate details of your personal life with Italian Vanity Fair.

Charlie Sheen Signs Deal For New Sitcom

After his Two And A Half Men saga seemed to drag out for months, it looks like we might soon get to see Charlie Sheen’s new show, where he’ll star as a sophisticated, somewhat foppish psychoanalyst living in Seattle with his cranky father and a Jack Russell terrier. Oh sorry, that’s actually Frasier. “Charlie has inked a deal with Lionsgate Television to create and star in a new sitcom. Charlie’s character will be very similar to the one he played on Two And a Half Men, however the show will be a lot racier,” an inside told RadarOnline. Consider how filthy Men used to be, this sounds like it could be the first NC-17 sitcom to hit cable. Which is probably just what cable has been waiting for.

Lucky for Sheen he had his lucky break this week, to ease his romantic angst. Earlier today rumors swirled that Charlie Sheen and Natalie Kenley have broken up, meaning that Sheen is officially goddess-less. That being said, if rumors of a network and cable bidding war on the new show are true, Charlie will be able to purchase the services of three, maybe even nine or twelve, great new girlfriends soon enough.

Have Paris Hilton And Cy Waits Split Up?

According to Us Magazine, the answer is yes. Although they’re keeping it quiet, the story is that Cy Waits and Paris Hilton have broken up. An insider reveals, “They are broken up…It’s sad, she cares about him a lot and thinks he’s a great guy but they really hit a rough patch. [Cy's] found it difficult to live his life with her in the spotlight and that’s what caused their split. No drama, it’s amicable, but things didn’t work out.” Apparently they also hit a “rough patch” with Paris’ new reality show, as Cy didn’t want to be in the spotlight. Murmurings of a break up were being heard even then.

If this is true — Paris or her publicist have no comment as yet — then we’re actually feeling for them. Normally we don’t spare a thought for Paris’ various flings or boyfriends, but her relationship with Cy seemed different. While they really looked like the real deal, it was also packed with drama. Paris’s stalker tried to attack Cy outside a courtroom—the same guy who broke into Paris’ home carrying two knives earlier that year. And of course, when busted for cocaine, Paris and Cy stuck together again. That’s love. Work it out, you two!
