    Ya like you didn’t have a clue. As usual they are only thinking about themselves, to hell with the kids.

    If the rumors that George and Angelina hate each other are actually true He is probably thinking “Bye, bitch. Only 1 can get out alive, and that’s me! Bros before hoes” F*** you, George!… I have to hate on someone right now. I’m emotional

    He does not look surprised. Or sorry.

  • Do Tell

    Now maybe Clooney and Pitt will rekindle their “formerly” fine friendship. It was so obvious they “cooled” after Pitt and Jolie got together.

  • Dan Berjac

    How was he supposed to know about the divorce?
    It was a personal matter between Jolie and Pitt.

    George Clooney is getting paid to act the part of husband. He’s not legally married to UGLY Amal. Has never slept with her, nor can he stand her. Her ISLAMIST arms dealer family is paying millions for the rights to the famous name. Google UGLY Amal’s arms dealer uncle Ziad Takieddine.

    George Clooney loves attention and money.

    Clooney knew about the Jolie-Pitt divorce… It was all carefully timed for release of film Allied.

    PR HAGS making money off every situation for max profit.

  • Levi Steinbeck

    BS… it’s all pre-planned by PR teams & released for specific effect. Of course George Clooney knew!
    He’s acting …as usual. Hardly sober these days.

  • Levi Steinbeck

    don’t believe the PR hype.

  • Lisa

    He couldn’t wipe the grin off his face. He knows he’s finally going to get his friend back.

  • xyz

    George actually loves men. Fact.

  • Pimpcessa

    Bradley never could resist a leading lady with a machine gun in her hands….right Angie??

  • Pimpcessa

    Lol, He’s like “Bye Felicia”!

  • Cz Gem

    George obviously felt very uncomfortable with the question.

  • QWERTYUIOP

    i don’t think so. not at all.

  • Levi Steinbeck

    How do you know? Seen him in action in a gay spa?
    & he’s certainly never been with ugly Amal.
    He’s a sick n twisted mind to fake his life.

  • mija288

    I think you’ve read way too much into that. Clooney and Pitt have never been “best” friends but they ARE friends and colleagues. “Cooled” as in; they led very different existences….Pitt becoming a father and husband and part of a pairing that lived /live all over the world at any given time.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    LOL you know Clooney is happy about this? I always liked him! I heard he hates Angelina so good for him!

  • Levi Steinbeck

    PR trolls in full damage control mode here.

  • Levi Steinbeck

    heard from who? Gossip sites? Idiot PR troll.

  • sassafrass

    She heard from the look on his face.
    Spin that, troll.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    Get lost James Haven!

  • Do Tell

    They may not have been best friends, but they definitely had a closer friendship. Pitt and Clooney beamed together. They clearly enjoyed each other’s company. Clooney is a practical joker.

    When Pitt got on with Jolie, it was like something was not the same… I read Jolie didn’t like Clooney and I believe that. He was single and going in and out of relationships constantly. Jolie is the opposite. She’s into family life. I can see where Jolie wouldn’t want Pitt hanging out with Clooney too much.

    Brad Pitt didn’t even attend Clooney’s fabulous wedding. That told me a whole lot.

  • Do Tell

    That has been said about Clooney and Jolie. I believe it. I think Pitt is an easier going guy than Clooney. I can easily imagine Clooney and Jolie’s personalities being at odds with each other.

  • Silly People

    He’s at the UN summit for refugees and people are asking him about Brad Pitt. lol

    Exactly. And people wonder why everyone hates Americans. It’s because we take whatever happens in the lives of celebrities, lives that have absolutely nothing to do with us, so personally. This shouldn’t be world news.

  • Jo

    I agree. Angelina never goes anywhere or does anything with any friends and got a bunch of kids to keep Brad around. Unfortunately she pulled him into her depression.

  • mija288

    No, they didn’t have a closer relationship. We wanted them to be dudes who after the camera’s stopped rolling and the lights were dimmed “my boy’s” but that’s just not the reality of their history. They ARE friends and no one is denying that but they aren’t now and never were before boon mates that ran them streets, close as brothers etc.. Clooney’s bestie is and has been for ages Rande Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s husband) and Brad really never has had that ace beyond his lil biological brother and that’s fact.

  • Silly People

    I totally agree- it’s such a serious conference he was attending- I mean the UN! And George’s wife is about to take on ISIS and they’re asking him about Brangelina. It’s pathetic.

  • brenda

    You are funny – LOL – thanks.

  • brenda

    No, looked more like a “got caught with my pants down (again)” look.

  • Do Tell

    You may know much more than I do about these celebs, but I still remember photos of Clooney on his boat with Pitt, Aniston and groups of their friends. I also remember Aniston being very much into Pitt’s family. I think his family was like her own. I know Pitt’s family was extremely fond of Aniston.

    Anyway, I don’t want to make this about Aniston.

    Pitt and Clooney would often mention each other in interviews and their words were truly kind, pleasant and fun… like buddies. Brad Pitt was constantly smiling about Clooney. They joked so much.

    I know Rande Gerber is Clooney’s bestie, but Clooney and Pitt did socialize together outside of just work (the Ocean films). But almost as soon as Pitt started seeing Jolie… nothing. It seemed to cease to be… like an “unspoken” tension was suddenly in the air.

    I didn’t need to read a word about it. I noticed a big difference in Pitt. I could feel that all of a sudden, Clooney was basically “out.” I think Pitt is an easy-going guy and he conformed more to what Jolie wanted. If he had not, they probably wouldn’t have made it this far.

    Clooney & Pitt going in different directions is not a good excuse for losing touch. You can always make time for your friends–somewhere–even for a moment, especially with social media. You can see their faces on screen. When people are boarding planes alone or in flight, they can say “hi” and play catch-up.

    I have friends I have not laid eyes on in many years, but we are still every bit emotionally close and friends because we kept in touch via phone and cards.

    I think it was the changes that Pitt began going thru with his new love (Jolie) and life that made him suddenly become more distant.

  • Do Tell

    I would classify Jolie as somewhat of a loner. That’s my best guess. She’s not shy, but she has a controlling personality and she is likely much more wary of people. She’s been thru a lot in life and naturally her guard would be more up than down, I think. I don’t think she’s into casual friendships. Trust is probably a huge issue for her.

  • Lemonsugar

    You are a ridiculous Islamophobe, but you’re props a bitter Zionist as well so no surprises there

  • Jo

    Or she’s a colossal bitch which is why no woman is ever around her for even a lunch.
