• The trust factor. The blog universe has rumors that Pitt is – are you sitting down? – a serial flirt. Thus, Aniston was never secure in their relationship. Odds this is the reason: 20-1. You marry the former sexiest man alive, you know he flirts.
Which brings to mind this eye-witness reader report that appeared on Gawker yesterday:
So I guess everyone must be really shocked that the “IT” couple Brad and Jen have split, but a few of us aren’t. Myself particularly. I worked with Brad 3 and half years ago on that 9/11 telethon (where George Clooney promised everyone that the cash was gonna help the NY victims but then the Red Cross kept all the money to renovate their offices or something). It’s not necessary to say what my role on the show was but I had to deal with him — and I almost keeled over everytime I had to because — aside from being insanely perfect in person — he was fully flirting with me! A fellow co-worker saw everything and all we could say was, “Wha…? He just married Rachel! Oh. My. Gawd. Where are my knee pads?!” He was fully pullin’ the “Hi, I’m Brad Pitt, I know I’m hot, and you’re kind of cute, so I’m gonna juice this for all it’s worth.” I didn’t take advantage of the moment because, well, I thought I was dreaming. And I was a fucking idiot. And oh yeah, a friend of mine who worked on the set of Mr.& Mrs. Smith told me that Brad hooked up with Angelina on the set. But that’s just gossip.
