Why is Angelina Jolie sexually attracted to Brad Pitt?
She's bisexual. She's been married to an older, homely guy (Billy Bob Thornton) and a handsome Brit (Johnny Lee Miler), but why William Bradley Pitt above all men and women? What is it about him?
he was somebody else's.
We'll never know if it was genuine sexual attraction, or if she wanted him because getting him would make her the most famous woman in the world.
Either way, she got what she wanted.
Because he's attractive rich and famous.
Maybe because Pitt follows Angelina's lead and is wild and creative in bed?
Aren't they both bi?
He's a good father (presumably), one of the only men in the world that would tolerate a brood of kids like that, two-time "Sexiest Man Alive" winner, and maybe they just have chemistry. Is it that hard to fathom?
He's good-looking. I know some Dataloungers find him ugly and repulsive, but they're not in the majority.
He's in the same line of work.
He wanted children. Lots of them.
He is involved in humanitarian causes, as she is.
She's a Gemini; he's a Sagittarius. If you believe in astrology, that's a compatible combination.
Those are some reasons why.
He's gorgeous. Duh! Or he was back in 2004 when they met.
He's still one of the best looking men on earth.
He's a good father.
He's cares about helping other people - look at all he's done in New Orleans.
Because he's fucking Brad Pitt? Does the OP think he's a troll or something?
Well he is way better than greasy billy bob...
I find Billy Bob sexier. He has a raw sexuality, and looks like he could fuck all night.
[quote]She's a Gemini; he's a Sagittarius. If you believe in astrology, that's a compatible combination.
They're very compatible astrologically, beyond their sun signs. There are karmic overtones to their relationship; they may not be together forever but there's a definite element of fate that drew them together. Angelina in particular is living out the promise of her natal chart.
Brad Pitt is the most wonderful man in the whole universe.
Uhm... and BI SEXUAL means liking MEN and WOMEN
Hollywood marriages are strategic. They're all about branding; always have been.
She's kind of a stalker woman who went after men who had chicks already. Ethan Hawke (met on the set, was married to Uma Thurman), Billy Bob Thornton (met on the set, was living with & engaged to Laura Dern), Colin Ferrell (on the set affair, he was with Kim Bordenave), Jenny Shimizu (had a gf when they met on the set), Jonny Lee Miller (met on the set, he had a gf at the time), Mick Jagger (met on the video set, he was married at the time), Nic Cage (met on the set, he was married to Lisa Marie Presley at the time), THE LIST GOES ON.....
Note all of these guys were all hooked up with someone else but she set her sights on them and blam, they were hers, for either a one-nighter or for a while. While all the men mentioned were definitely SCUMBAGS for screwing her while being involved with other women, esp if it was not an agreed upon OPEN relationship, SHE HAS DADDY issues.
She has said her father dumped her mother when she was about 2 or so for another woman. Her mother was really fucked up, STILL BLAMED VOIGHT ON HER DEATHBED IN HER WILL.
Angelina never recovered. Note all the men mentioned did not want to keep her, it was only the formerly goodlooking, now homeless & stinky looking Pitt that wanted to keep her and the brood.
His body odor.
Why is Leann Rimes sexually attracted to Eddie Cibrian? I just can't see it.
R1 nailed it.
The "brood" came AFTER they got together. She only had Maddox when they met on Mr/Mrs Smith.
. How will we ever really know if any of those men did, or didn't, want to keep her. She could easily have dumped them when any of them started to get attached to her (however toxic). Dumping men who start to really love you would also go along with having daddy issues.
So, I would venture to say the reasons they're together: they don't smother or cling to each other, each can do their own passions in life, but also share some big visionary world-healing goals that they can make happen better as a team. They look good together and probably agree on the kind of publicity they want together. They agree not to screw eachother over in the public eye, lest they ruin their PR and detract from accomplishing their goals and visions. They both wanted to do much bigger things in the world than just act, own homes, have kids, and live rich. I can see it working for another 10 years.
Does she still bed women?
I don't think she's really bi at all. I think she used it for attention and to make herself more titillating to straight guys. She had a tendency to do "shocking" things for attention. Kissing her brother, the vial of blood, etc.
She's Dom and he's Sub.
He strikes me as dumb? Is she dumb too?
Oh,please, stop with the notion that she needed him for stardom.
If anything, he's the one who married up.
Yeah, if you follow the trajectory of Brad Pitt's relationships they are always with bigger stars. How's he gonna top Angelina? They're going to last whether they want to or not. Or he could fall for some nobody jazz singing architect. That might get him a lot of attention.
When Angelina was married to Billy Bob there was very little interest in
her. Once she hooked up with Brad they became a brand.
Any woman past or present who gets involved with Brad is still of interest
to the press, i.e. Aniston and Paltrow.
Brad is a genuine movie star. He has always been handsome less so now
but for most men and women he is the gold standard.
Throw in his Midwestern upbringing, his sense of humor and his strong
friendships with A listers and he is the man like it or not.
Angelina is the lucky one although I hear they pretty much live
separate lives except for the occasional photo op and open relationship.
She wanted more fame and he is a dumber than a box of rocks. What more can a woman want?
Their relationship works because she thinks he's Brad Pitt. and that's because, HE IS, YOU DUM FUX!
[quote]We'll never know if it was genuine sexual attraction, or if she wanted him because getting him would make her the most famous woman in the world.
Of course we know, R2. There is no bigger famewhore in the world than Angelina Jolie.
Who are these obsessive Angelina Jolie haters who troll this board? I don't doubt the woman is a famewhore, but what celebrity isn't? You really think to keep the interest of the public famewhoring isn't involved?
"Oh,please, stop with the notion that she needed him for stardom. "
Oh please, getting him turned her from an attention-hungry actress to a SUPERSTAR OF ALL MEDIA!! It wasn't acting that got her on every magazine cover in the world; like Liz Taylor before her, it was her private life.
In fact, her fame has hurt her acting career. She's so well-known that she can no longer disappear into a character.
r36 we've been here the entire time. This board has NEVER been Team Angie. Never.
Della (who is female btw and a grandmother) has always LOVED her & is a Brangeloonatic amongst other shit. She's been given lots of shit here but she can't help it, she's a Brangeloonie.
Their astrology means they'll be together till the bitter, and I mean BITTARHH end. She's in charge and he's the follower. He gets off on being controlled and bitch loves giving it to him!!
Do Pitt and Clooney still have a thing, or is it a 3-way with Angie? According to posters on BlindGossip, many think that Pitt and Clooney still want to get married.
The Insider at 32 thinks nobody was interested in Angelina before she with Brad? She was the hottest property around!
R41, the press was not as interested in Angelina until she hooked
up with Brad.
Angelina and Billy Bob or Jonny Lee Miller did not grace the cover of magazines and tabloids as much as she does with Brad.
The general public was not fascinated with either of her two ex husbands.
Neither one has mass appeal and Angelina was very dark and brooding
during those years..
Brad made her very mainstream and her dedication and activism in human
rights has garnered her much well deserved respect.
Angie and Clooney don't like each other, so I don't think that there was ever a three way situation there. I actually can't see Brad and George together either though. They aren't close like Cindy Crawford and her husband are to George Clooney. There is a lot of fucking going on between the Clooney camp and the Crawford/Gerber's.
In order to get big attention she had to try to kill herself, makeout with her brother or adopt a kid.
R40 that blind was one of Blind Gossip's April Fools Day prank blinds.
Not that most of their blind ítems aren't bullshit every other day of the year.
Timing. Once Angelina got Maddox she decided she wanted a more "traditional" relationship. Billy Bob did not want that type of relationship with her and split. Brad wanted relationship that was more "traditional". Jennifer did not want that. During the filming two people sexually attracted to each other also realized that wanted the same things in life and viola a relationship begins.
What I find interesting is that Brad got Angelina to birth three babies when she swore she never would.
What is the deal with Billy Bob? All of his women since Angelina have been average looking. He looks like sex on a stick to me. I would think that he could do better.
R42 please don't address me like you're an expert or 'Insider' and I'm ignorant on the subject. I have worked in the media for more than 20 years and have a good memory. Her profile was raised by the affair with Pitt but she was opening movies, winning Oscars and Golden Globes and making headlines well before he came on the scene. Perhaps go back and see if she wasn't on quite a few magazine covers before their union? The blood vials, the incest rumours, the adopting of children, the affairs with woman, the press was most certainly interested in her along with the public.
She is attracted to anybody who enhances her fame.
Thank You, r48.
Even I knew all of that and I write this as someone who has never watched an Angelina Jolie film except "Mr and Mrs Smith.
Her stardom didn't need Pitt;the very dull Pitt, otoh, certainly benefitted from hers.
I stand by what I wrote earlier, r38- Pitt wisely traded up from Aniston to Jolie and who could blame him?
By the way, you sound a bit too invested in hating Jolie, while I, on the other hand just know star material when I see it.
"Her stardom didn't need Pitt;the very dull Pitt, otoh, certainly benefitted from hers."
Ooops, my eye-opener (coffee) hasn't kicked in yet- Her stardom didn't need Pitt; the very dull Pitt, otoh, certainly benefitted from hers.
Oh, and while I'm at at it, r38, yes, I'm a female, however, over my + ten years here I've been called every name in the book but "grandmother?"
ooof, that hurts.
Maybe because Pitt follows Angelina's lead and is wild and creative in bed?
Close. R27 was more on target.
Angelina is wild in bed. Pitt was in a cunt-struck daze. She's into BDSM, with a leaning toward dominance, and a slightly sadistic streak.
Pitt is a natural follower. As long as the story concludes with him coming in the end, he's not much concerned with the details...even if it means he gets his ass paddled in the process.
They're both bisexual. He's a passive stoner at heart, both in and out of bed.
Off topic, but I was wondering if George Clooney is the new Sean Connery in that the public will keep on insisting that he is the sexiest man alive even years after his looks have left him. Sean Connery was well into his 70s before people gave that narrative up. George Clooney, if you squint, still resembles a sexy younger version of himself with the right haircut. But honestly his looks are a bit squiggy around the edges.
R32, Juliette Lewis? I think not.
I thought Angelina wanted Brad because Gillian Anderson's unavailable?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
