Would you invite your ex to your wedding? What about an ex who cheated on you with a woman who is now his wife (or pretty much his wife)? Would you invite her too? Well it seems Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston have done just that. According to Entertainment Wise, Aniston's hunky fiancé went ahead and invited his bride-to-be's cheating ex-husband Brad Pitt and the woman who destroyed their marriage, Angelina Jolie.
So, why on earth would Jen invited Brad and Angie to her wedding?
Well it turns out, she really wants them there. Just after Justin and Jennifer were engaged, hints were dropped that Jen wanted Mr. and Mrs. Pitt (although not officially) at their wedding. And we've known for some time that Jen's been tight with Brad's mom since the relationship and marriage and that they are still close today. And allegedly, Jen still keeps in touch with Brad, too.
According to British magazine Grazia, "Justin knows that Jen and Brad talk occasionally and he likes the actor [the pair have met a few times]. Obviously, this means inviting Angelina too. Jennifer was taken aback, as she really didn't think Justin would want her ex-husband there, but she loves the fact he's so OK about it."
It seems Jen's always been cool with the idea of Brad and Angie at her nuptials; she was just worried of what Justin might think. So he went ahead and invited them himself, knowing that Jen wanted them there. We think that's kind of sweet.
But it leads us to wonder why Jen wants them at her wedding to begin with? A source for Grazia also said that "Justin and Jennifer are so happy right now—they don't want any bad feeling in any aspect of their lives by the time they tie the knot."
Well how about just taking them out to dinner and not having them present for the most emotionally intimate moment of your life?
If it is true, and Brad and Angie end up going to their wedding, we bet they'll all be on their best behavior: Brad will shake Justin's hand and give Jen an affectionate hug and kiss on the cheek. While Angie will probably awkwardly attempt a smile at Justin and then give Jen a loose congratulatory hug with just one arm that we will be patiently anxiously waiting to see a photo of. Then, Brad and Angie will eat dinner quietly at a back table, and leave before the dancing and toasts start.
Let's face it, there will be so many other amazing celebs there, Angie and Brad will just blend right in. We're just hoping she doesn't wear that gown with the high-rising leg slits she wore to the Oscars. But it doesn't matter, nothing, not even Angie's toned legs, will outshine Jen on her wedding day. (Remember how gorgeous she looked at her first wedding?) ...But that home wrecker better not wear white.
