Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Engagement: Will Jennifer Aniston Comment?

Posted: 04/19/2012 4:32 pm

Since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced their engagement last Friday, Brad's ex-wife Jennifer Aniston has made sure to stay out of the spotlight. And although friends of America's sweetheart have told the media that she “is happy” and “wants Brad to be happy,” Aniston has not said a word publicly, and doesn’t plan to either.

“She is in an impossible position," one A-list publicist tells me. "If she issues a statement, then it will be dissected and once again open old wounds. Yet, if she doesn’t, her silence will speak volumes. One thing is for sure, she is going to need to have a plan because she won’t be able to hide from the press forever. At her next red carpet event, you know someone is going to ask her about the upcoming marriage.”

When Pitt left Aniston for Jolie in 2005, it took some time for the jilted actress to comment publicly on the break-up -- she finally opened up to Vanity Fair's Leslie Bennetts, in what became then the biggest-selling cover story in the magazine's history. Insiders believe Jennifer will go a similar route when it comes to revealing her true feelings about the engagement.

“It must be exhausting for her -- she will never get away from the Brad-Angie-Jen triangle for the rest of her life,” a producer who has worked with Aniston tells me. “It’s hard enough that your husband leaves you for another woman, but to be reminded of it day after day and to be expected to answer questions about it is just not fair. Can you imagine the pressure she is going to be under the day of the wedding? Does she hide or be sure to be seen holding hands with her boyfriend and smiling?”
