Brad Pitt has finally won some sympathy after his split from Angelina Jolie.
We all know that the superstar couple did not have an amicable split when Jolie filed for divorce last year. But finally, after they settled the feud that lasted for months, they decided to reach out and talk again for the best of their six children.
Now, the latest reports are claiming that Jolie has been making her ex the villain in their separation, but Pitt seems to be in a better position than her in the eyes of the public. E! News noted that after their split, Jolie’s life seemed less transformed than Pitt, while the Allied star went through a major mid-life reinvention. In fact, he started a new hobby: sculpting. On the other hand, Jolie continued with the same routine and wears the same monochrome outfits and barely-there makeup.
Additionally, during Pitt’s interview with GQ, he talked about the sudden transition of being a husband and father to being single, which Jolie missed in her interviews, reported Yahoo! In fact, the Changeling star did not seem to be in touch with other single moms.
E! News added that Pitt has won the popularity war against Jolie, especially after he was cleared of any charges for the plane incident involving him and son Maddox following the DCFS and FBI investigation.
Prior to this, many believed that Jolie has been making Pitt the bad guy. For instance, she claimed that he wanted to seal the divorce documents because he was “terrified that the public will learn the truth.” In addition, a source claimed that Jolie was “making him [Pitt] out to be the villain” in her interview with Vanity Fair in September when the actress implied that the children are healing from him.
“[Our children have been] very brave in times they needed to be. We’re all just healing from the events that led to the filing… They’re not healing from the divorce. They’re healing from some… from life, from things in life,” Jolie told the magazine.
Fortunately, things have gotten better between the exes. Lately, Jolie has been spotted on several outings with their children. On Sunday, she graced the Toronto Film Festival red carpet with Maddox, 14, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 9.
The Salt star also recently complimented her son Maddox, who executive produced her film First They Killed My Father. “I can never rate my own child, but I couldn’t have made it without him and I cannot say that about every producer I’ve worked with,” Jolie said.
Pitt seems to be in a better place now too.
