Brad and Jennifer separate

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston Split

41 minutes ago Top Stories - AP


By JOHN ROGERS, Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES - Hollywood glamour couple Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston (news) have split, his publicist confirmed Friday.

"We would like to announce that after seven years together we have decided to formally separate," the couple said in a statement.


"For those who follow these sorts of things, we would like to explain that our separation is not the result of any speculation reported by the tabloid media," the actors said.


The couple didn't indicate if they plan to divorce, and publicist Cindy Guagenti declined to comment beyond the statement, which also said, "We happily remain committed and caring friends with great love and admiration for one another."


The separation, first reported on People magazine's Web site, comes 4 1/2 years after the pair's wedding and after months of speculation that their marriage was in trouble.


Aniston has recently been photographed in public without her diamond-studded wedding ring, according to People, although the magazine said the couple had spent the New Year's weekend together on the Caribbean island of Anguilla with Aniston's former "Friends" co-star Courteney Cox (news) and her husband, actor David Arquette (news).


Pitt, 41, and Aniston, 35, have been together since being set up on a blind date in 1998. They were married in a lavish wedding on July 29, 2000, on a Malibu estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Some 200 people attended the event, which included four bands, a gospel choir, fireworks and tens of thousands of flowers.


Part of Pacific Coast Highway was shut down to accommodate the influx of guests, which included actress Cameron Diaz (news) and most of Aniston's "Friends" co-stars. It was the first marriage for both.


Until rumors began swirling that they were about to split, there were near-constant tabloid rumors that Aniston was pregnant. The actress had told People in 2002 that she and Pitt eventually wanted to start a family.


"Absolutely it will happen but probably not for a while," she said at the time.


Since their wedding, Pitt and Anniston have been touted not only as one of Hollywood's most glamorous couples but also one of the film industry's most powerful. They are co-owners of the Plan B production company with producer Brad Grey, who earlier this week was hired to replace Sherry Lansing as head of the Paramount studio.


Aniston is perhaps the most recognizable star of "Friends," the ensemble show that concluded a 10-year run last year as one of television's highest-rated comedies. She also has starred in such films as "Along Came Polly," "Bruce Almighty" and "The Good Girl." Her father is veteran soap opera actor John Aniston.


Pitt, long one of Hollywood' most bankable film stars, is currently seen in "Ocean's Twelve." Other film credits include "Ocean's Eleven," "Fight Club," "Meet Joe Black," "Seven Years in Tibet," "Sleepers," "12 Monkeys," "Legends of the Fall," "A River Runs Through It" and "Thelma & Louise."

i try so hard not to be judgemental, but i didn't think the two of them seemed *in love.* they seemed to adopt a wait and see attitude.

no matter what though, it sucks that they're splitting up. sorry to see whenever any couple separates.

I figured they were in Splitsville a while ago. Never really struck me as a "warm" couple.

Ha ha, I saw that coming!

Oh, we want kids, but let me do just one more movie, Brad, I have my career to think of.

Brad Pitt needs a non-celebrity. He wants kids, I'm sure many of us would give him kids...

Brad Pitt is a very cool guy. He's one of the few "handsome men" that guys don't sneer at or say anything bad about him. We look up to this guy.

Like Mike? Try: Like Brad.

By the way, I'm seriously suspecting he had a nose job. If you watch Thelma and Louise you'll see his nose is pointing upwards, it looks really weird because it doesn't do that in more recent movies. That was kind of a let-down for me I thought he was a "natural".
