Conventional wisdom painted a picture of a manipulative Angelina Jolie seducing Brad Pitt away from Jennifer Aniston, but Andrew Morton claims Pitt, who allegedly refers to himself as “Mr. Mom,” made the first pass. Morton penned the new unauthorized biography of Jolie titled Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography. (Read a summary of reviews here.) But Pitt’s desire to be a father was key to Jolie snagging him, says Morton.
“Well, it’s kind of playing happy family. He’s a great caregiver, this Brad Pitt…. So here’s Maddox, this cute little kid, playing around and it draws somebody in. And in all fairness, friends of Angelina, all said it was Brad that made the [pass] in that relationship,” explains Morton.
“Psychologically, she makes men almost compromise themselves to cheat on their girlfriends, or cheat on their wives in order to be with her,” says Morton. “The only man that’s never rejected her is Maddox.”
Um, Andrew? Maddox is a KID, not a man.
Morton has more to say related to the abandonment Jolie allegedly suffered at the hands of her mother:
“In a way [abandonment] explains so much: the cutting, the drugs, the kind of bi-sexuality, an awful lot in her life is explained in those formative months. Her mother took it out on Angelina because she looked like [Jon] Voight,” says Morton, who adds that it caused Jolie to cut her “neck…thighs…breast with a knife.”
“It’s weird but for someone like Angelina, who’s in this psychological trauma, it’s a release and that’s one of the central aspects of the book,” he says of the cutting.
Any desire to read the book? Me neither.
