NEW YORK – Scottish actor Gerard Butler revealed the fact that Greek-American Jennifer Aniston is a better kisser than Angelina Jolie in an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live on January 17. During the popular segment Plead the Fifth, Cohen asked Butler, who has appeared in films with both Ms. Aniston and Ms. Jolie, which of his co-stars and former wives of Brad Pitt was the better kisser.
Butler only hesitated for a split second before answering, “Jennifer Aniston,” adding, “I’m just going, you know, I’m just taking you by surprise,” as reported on Digital Spy.
Butler co-starred with Aniston in The Bounty Hunter (2010) and with Jolie in Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003). The 48-year-old actor was on Cohen’s show to promote his latest film, Den of Thieves with co-star 50 Cent.
It should be noted that Aniston and Pitt married on July 29, 2000. Pitt and Jolie had met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in the summer of 2004 while both were married to other people.
He had been married to Aniston for nearly five years at the time and rumors soon swirled about a Jolie-Pitt romance as the two traveled for the publicity leading up to the film’s release. Aniston filed for divorce in March 2005 and by the fall of that year, Pitt would join Jolie on a UNHCR (the UN’s refugee agency) trip. Since the Pitt-Jolie romance became public in the winter of 2006, rumors continued of the alleged feud between Aniston and Jolie.
After Jolie and Pitt announced they were having a child together in 2006, Pitt adopted Jolie’s two adopted children Maddox and Zahara, and the family eventually expanded to include 6 children. The couple wed on August 23, 2014. They divorced in August 2016. At the 2018 Golden Globes, Aniston was a presenter along with her idol, Carol Burnett. It was one of the rare events in recent years that was attended by both Aniston and Jolie.
Digital Spy reported that “considering Jen and Brad Pitt divorced 12 years ago, we think it’s probably time we moved on.”
Aniston is the daughter of Greek-born actor John Aniston, best known for playing the role of Victor Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives, and American actress Nancy Dow. Aniston’s godfather was the late actor Telly Savalas who was a dear friend of her father’s. She married actor, director and screenwriter Justin Theroux on August 5, 2015.
