Angelina Jolie can adopt a child from every third world country on earth until she needs barracks to house the children, but we are still going to find fault with the woman. Jennifer Aniston can fall in love with the obnoxious John Mayer and her relationship, although it is long over with, does not so much as raise an eyebrow. In fact for a while there, everyone thought highly of John because Jennifer saw something “good” in him. Why are we so set in our opinions of Angie and Jen?
Angelina Jolie will always be the woman that broke up the all American girl and boy next door couple in the public’s eyes. Many feel Brad Pitt and Jenifer Aniston would still be a couple if not for her. That is probably not true, but we will never know, unless we actually hear it from the horses mouth one day and it has been a long time since Jennifer has talked openly about anything having to do with that relationship, so it does not look as if that will happen. Jennifer Aniston will always be the woman we are pulling for and it seems that nothing can change this phenomenon.
Angelina’s happy and stable relationship with Brad Pitt is not something people are ready to believe in. Each time a rumor of the two arguing or splitting up starts, the media has a hay day and so do we, the public. This runs deeper than just Angelina, the woman herself. This is about life experiences of others and what they equate Angelina with in their own lives.
Jenifer Aniston is the epitome of wholesome and genuine . Most of her roles are those of sweet and naïve young women. She has not yet played anyone dangerous, defiant, or even unlikable. Jennifer will always be the girl from “friends”. Even though these are only roles she is playing, the public has yet to see her even resemble anything “bad”, not even with a fake demeanor on the big screen.
Angelina Jolie is the other woman. Not just to Jennifer Aniston, but to you, me, and many other women who have been hurt by men. She symbolizes the girl that took your boyfriend away in high school, the secretary your husband was sleeping with, and the housewife in your neck of the woods that is bedding down everyone’s husband. She had a crazy life, when she was young. She married a couple of derelict’s and walked around with one husband’s blood in a vile around her neck. Then there was that time she gave her brother a kiss on stage that might have been more appropriate in the back seat of a car. These are just a few behaviors of the ones that make up Angelina’s baggage.
People tend to forget that Angelina Jolie was very young when she shocked us with her antics. She was a child of Hollywood, and a wild child at that. There seems nothing she can do to be redeemed in the public’s eyes. Today, she is a young mother, good will provider to those in need, and from all reliable accounts, a loving partner to Brad Pitt. Maybe it is time we consider Brangelina is here to stay.
