Justin Theroux Revenge Brad Pitt


Is Justin Theroux getting “revenge” on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on behalf of Jennifer Aniston? A report sensationally claims Theroux is “throwing shade.” Gossip Cop can reveal what’s going on.

“Brangie Burn! Justin Theroux Brags About Happy Marriage To Jennifer Aniston,” blares a headline from RadarOnline, which writes, “Take that, Brangelina! Jennifer Aniston is getting the ultimate revenge on her ex and the woman he left her for, with plenty of public support from friends and family.” The webloid explains, “While promoting his new film The Girl on the Train, Aniston’s husband Justin Theroux bragged about their happy marriage — an ironic action to take just days after Brad and Angelina announced their split.”

But Theroux didn’t “take action,” nor did he “brag.” During an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” he was discussing the idea of “perfect couples,” one of the themes of his new movie. Asked what makes “you and Jennifer so good together,” the actor replied, “I think we appreciate each other’s sense of humor. We respect one another and we get along. I mean, it sounds simple but it’s true.”

So, what does that have to do with Jolie and Pitt? Absolutely nothing. They were never mentioned in any way, shape or form. To link them to Theroux’s comments just because his remarks came a week after the Brangelina breakup is utterly ridiculous.

He was not “throwing shade.” He didn’t get “revenge” for Aniston. And there was no “Brangie burn.” All there is RadarOnline twisting an unrelated interview into something entirely sensational and inaccurate. The site even illustrated its story with a picture of Theroux and Aniston looking happy, while Pitt and Jolie appear less so (see photo above). But in this case, the two relationships have nothing to do with each other.
