The genetic possibilities of mating with Brad Pitt aren’t lost on any woman of child-bearing age, but would you ask him for some sperm after he left you for Angelina Jolie during one of the most highly-publicized splits of our time?
That’s exactly what Jennifer Aniston’s former agent, the late Sue Mengers, suggested that she do.
“After Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie, Mengers told me that she advised her beloved Jen to ask Brad for some of his sperm,” Maureen Dowd wrote in a remembrance in the New York Times on Dec. 22. “She was a yenta who loved fixing people up, in work and in love.”
If Aniston took Mengers advice, we’ll never know. But Aniston is now childless and happily celebrating the season with Justin Theroux.
The pair sent out a joint holiday card earlier this month, “We wish you and your family a holiday season full of happiness and joy,” noting that they had made a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Best Friends Animal Society in the recipient's name.
“With warmth and love, Jen and Justin.”
