Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were Hollywood’s golden couple from 2000 to 2005, until their five year marriage ended because of “irreconcilable differences.” Pitt quickly moved on with his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star, Angelina Jolie, and announced his relationship one month after his separation. In 2011, Pitt explained his split to Parade, saying, “I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic… I wasn’t living an interesting life. I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.” In a Vanity Fair interview, Aniston bit her tongue but stated, “He makes his choices. He can do whatever. We’re divorced, and you can see why… There’s a sensitivity chip that’s missing.”
John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston dated on and off for about a year, before splitting in 2009. In an interview with Playboy in 2010, Mayer made a slight dig about Aniston’s age. “One of the most significant differences between us was that I was tweeting. There was a rumor that I had been dumped because I was tweeting too much. That wasn’t it, but that was a big difference,” he said. “The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction. And I always said, ‘These are the new rules.’ You have to show that you don’t take yourself seriously.” Read even more details at Shakira.
Though he was worried that writing lyrics would pigeonhole him as a lyricist, Sondheim picked up his pen again to write the lyrics for the Ethel Merman vehicle Gypsy, with a book by Laurents and music by Jule Styne. Sondheim called the musical, which was loosely based on the memoirs of famous burlesque entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee (aka Louise) and focusing on her domineering stage mother, Rose, “the show where I came of age—lyrically, at any rate.” Originally, the scene featuring Rose’s breakdown wasn’t going to be a song at all, but “a surreal ballet, in which Rose would be confronted by all the people in her life,” according to Sondheim. But a week into the rehearsals, choreographer Jerome Robbins said he wouldn’t have time to teach Merman a ballet. So it would have to be a song. Styne had a prior engagement that night, so Sondheim sat down with Robbins to discuss what the number should be. “I suggested to Jerry that since he wanted all the people in the story to collide in a ballet, perhaps if Rose’s breakdown were to be sung rather than danced it could comprise fragments of all the songs associated with her and the people in her life; the songs we’d heard all evening, colliding in an extended surreal medley consisting of fragments of the score.” As Sondheim improvised on the piano, Robbins danced across the stage, “like a stripper, but a clumsy one: like Rose doing a strip,” Sondheim writes. “That was the beginning of three exhilarating hours of musical and choreographic improvisation, as we shaped and constructed the number to be a summary of the score. I even improvised lyrics, something which was anathema to me.”
Breaking up is hard to do, and no one knows that better than Aussie actor Adelaide Kane. The Reign actor got super candid on a recent episode of the Too Tired To Be Crazy podcast, opening up about her new relationship—with The Society actor Jacques Colimon—and its not so typical start. Talking about the end of her previous relationship, with fashion exec Joey Pauline, Kane told podcast host Violet Benson in the November 2019 interview: “I think the big, like, breaking moment was when I realized I was falling in love with someone else,” she revealed. “When I realized I had stopped asking for those things that I needed that was sort of a moment for me when I realized I had stopped fighting for the things that I needed…And I just got completely blindsided when I met someone who I’m with at the moment and I left my last partner for this person and I feel more myself now than I have in two years.” Find a few extra details at Demi Rose.
