Dolly Parton — a celebrity that one typically never associates with Hollywood gossip — has spoken out and given her opinion on the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie love triangle with Jennifer Aniston.
The aging country music singer known for her knockout figure and effervescent personality has not got any vested personal interest in Brangelina or in the Pitt-Aniston link (so she is not an insider).
She did, however, have some pretty big remarks about why famous couples like the Jolie-Pitt type of celebrity couples never last.
DOLLY PARTON DISSING ANGELINA JOLIE?
Here’s the latest celebrity “strange news” rumor about Brangelina.
According to Jam Showbiz Country and Wenn.com,
Country legend Dolly Parton has taken aim at Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – insisting celebrity partnerships will “never work.”
The singer has been married to her husband Carl for 44 years after meeting him in a laundromat, and she puts her marriage success down to her partner being out of her industry.
Jolie and Pitt have been dogged by rumours their relationship is in trouble, and Parton wouldn’t be surprised – because she can’t see how conflicting showbiz schedules and egos would work.
She says, “Aren’t Angelina and Brad meant to be having problems? And Madonna and her husband Guy (Ritchie) didn’t last long. There are so many break-ups that the names pass me by but it makes me think, if you want to escape the spotlight why marry another famous person? It’s never going to work. You’re either in competition or your priorities are different. Your schedules will always clash so you never see each other.
“My husband is a homebody and has nothing to do with this celebrity world. We’ve been married 44 years and have worked so well together because we’re not in the same business. I met my husband before I became a star and he doesn’t care about any of it. If I’d married someone in the same business, it would never have lasted.”
Pitt and Jolie have denied their relationship is in crisis and have launched legal proceedings against a British newspaper over the reports.
Open mouth, insert foot, Dolly.
Brad and Angie are still happily together (per their own family reports) — and we hope they will stay that way for a while. The only people who are not happy about this couple staying together are the Aniston fans.
What do YOU think? Was the country music singer right? Should she have used Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as an example of a celebrity couple split at this time, while the couple is is struggling to stay together or would it have been better for her to offer words of condolence if and when the romantic Hollywood stars do break up?
