Christina Applegate Watch What Happens Live


Christina Applegate was forced to open up about having “ditched” Brad Pitt in the middle of a date years ago. The actress was on Sunday’s “Watch What Happens Live” when host Andy Cohen pressed Applegate about what caused her to bail on Pitt for another man. Watch the video below.

During a game of “Plead the Fifth,” in which Cohen asks his guests three questions and they can opt out of answering one of them, the host first asked Applegate if she had ever “taken a dip in the lady pond” and dated a female. She responded, “Oh! That means gone lesbian for a moment. Uh, no.” She added, “Not that that wouldn’t be beautiful. Women are beautiful. Just not my cup of lady pond.”

Cohen then asked Applegate who was the most “well-endowed” actor with whom she’s ever worked. Because she’s happily married to Martyn LeNoble, Applegate decided to plead the fifth on that question.

Cohen’s third and final question was about her leaving Pitt for another man. “I have read your research extensively. There’s much talk of a date that you were on with Brad Pitt to the MTV Movie Awards in 1989 in which you reported that you ditched, mid-date,” said Cohen, adding, “You said you ditched him for another guy. My question for you, Christina, is who was the guy that you ditched Brad Pitt for?”

At first, Applegate tried to plead the fifth again but Cohen wouldn’t let her off that easy. “Was he an actor?… Was he someone that you eventually wound up dating? Did you ever see Brad Pitt again after that?” asked Cohen.

In the end, Applegate said she never got to date Pitt again, but refused to give up this mystery man’s name. Check out the video below to see Christina Applegate on “Watch What Happens Live.” NOTE: The video is no longer available.
