[Blind Gossip] This talented actor and actress are both big stars. They are married and have a bunch of Oscar/Emmy/Sag/Golden Globes nominations/wins between them. Almost always at The Oscars. They went to an Oscars party. According to our spy:
I was watching them both. There was no absolutely contact between her and [Husband] the entire time. NONE. Stayed on opposite sides of the room. They didn’t talk to each other – didn’t even LOOK at each other – the whole time!
The funniest part was when someone asked if they could bring [Husband] over to get a photo of the two of them together. [Wife] just smiled sweetly, said, “No thank you,” and then turned around and walked away! She was very polite, but you could tell she was annoyed at the question.
[Optional] Will they divorce?
Actor/Husband: Brad Pitt
Actress/Wife: Angelina Jolie
The optional question to this blind item was: Will they divorce?
Well, we now have an answer: Yes, they will!
Both Pitt and Jolie are both Oscar winners (Pitt for 12 Years A Slave and Jolie for Girl Interrupted).
They did a film together in 2015 (By The Sea) which was neither a commercial nor critical success. Neither that film nor any of their individual projects for that year were nominated for Oscars.
While they chose not to attend the Oscars ceremony, they recognized the importance of their presence at the the professional parties around the Oscars, and did attend at least one.
However, as this blind item details, they barely spoke to one another and did not want to be photographed together.
This was the second incident in two months about which we wrote a blind item that pointed towards trouble in their marriage. As you now know, they just announced that they are getting a divorce.
From The Associated Press:
Jolie files for divorce from Pitt
Angelina Jolie Pitt has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, bringing an end to what began as the world’s most tabloid headline-generating romance before morphing into a star-studded engine of family and philanthropy.
Jolie Pitt, 41, cited “irreconcilable difference” in divorce papers filed Monday in Los Angeles. She is seeking physical custody of their six children, with visitation rights for Pitt.
An attorney for Jolie Pitt, Robert Offer, said Tuesday that her decision to divorce was made “for the health of the family.” The filing dated the couple’s separation to last Thursday.
“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time,” Pitt said in a statement.
