Chelsea Handler has ripped into Angelina Jolie following the news she is to divorce Brad Pitt, branding the actress a “f***ing lunatic”.

The US chat show host and comedian, who is good friends with Brad’s ex-wife Jennifer Ansiton, added that she wasn’t surprised the 52-year-old actor was “allegedly drinking and smoking too much weed”.

In a segment on her show on Tuesday night, she said: “There are rumors that part of the problem was that Brad was allegedly drinking and smoking too much weed. I wonder why he would need to self-medicate.”

She went on: “Maybe because he could have been spending the last 12 years at Lake Como hanging out with George Clooney and Matt Damon, instead of being stuck in a house with 85 kids speaking 15 different languages.”

She then added: “Oh yeah, because he married a f***ing lunatic, that’s why.”


Angelina’s lawyer, Robert Offer, issued a statement on Tuesday (20 September) saying that her decision to start divorce proceedings had been made “for the health of the family”.

The 41-year-old actress cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ with her husband on divorce papers, which listed their date of separation as 15 September.

Meanwhile, French actress Marion Cotillard has broken her silence over the divorce, vehemently denying any romantic involvement with Brad, who she stars opposite in the upcoming film, ‘Allied’

The actress dispelled rumours of an alleged affair in a lengthy Instagram post, adding that she wished Brad and Angelina well.

She wrote: “I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up.”
