I was un-liked on Facebook by someone quite awhile ago because of a comment I made about my love for Angelina Jolie.
Gasp as you might, but I do quite enjoy her. I enjoy her checkered past. I enjoy her interesting relationship with her brother. I enjoy the vial of blood she used to wear around her neck. I enjoy her leg discretely posed through any slit in her dress. And believe it or not, I enjoy her acting.
This person on Facebook was all, “HOW DARE YOU ENJOY HER!?! SHE’S A HOME WRECKER!!”
And the comment really caught me off guard.
#1 Are we all still really caught up on that?
It’s been like…8 years right? Seems as though all the parties involved have moved on here.
#2 Do we all even really know the full story there?
How do we know Jennifer and Brad hadn’t talked about separating? Maybe they were already in the midst of breaking up. Maybe Brad slipped Angelina a roofied cocktail and he’s really the sick one here? Did TMZ report all the facts? HOW DO WE KNOW? AND WHY DO WE CARE SO MUCH?
#3 Should a person’s personal life really influence the appreciation of their talent?
Does she have talent or does she not? Shouldn’t that be the main concern? It’s the only way she actually affects our lives directly. Did I enjoy that movie I just saw with her in it, or did I waste my money on the terrible acting?
(That being said Kanye West, Chris Brown, Mike Vick…I still don’t like those guys for personal reasons)
#4 How much good can one person do in this world before we pardon any wrong doing and begin to appreciate their work?
Apparently visiting war torn countries, adopting children in need of families from around the globe and becoming some kind of goodwill ambassador for humanitarian rights is not enough.
#5 Why has Angelina been branded with a scarlet letter, but the married party involved (Mr. Brad Pitt) seems to have been been forgiven and accepted?
You don’t see people rolling their eyes at the mention of his name, “Oh how could you like HIM!?!” And yet, Angelina has been cast as the seductive siren we all need too punish. That makes a lot of sense.
I’m pretty much over the indiscretion and the only reason I’m even bringing this all back up is because the folks over at SheKnows recently asked me if I would tell my kids if my husband had been unfaithful to me. The question was an easy one for me to answer, but made think about that one time this gal un-liked me because of Angelina Jolie and I just had to get all those pent up feelings out of my system.
So where do you stand? Over it? Still hard feelings? TEAM ANNISTON FOREVAH!?!
