If there are two celebrities in the world that I know I can go to and get a straight up, honest answer it’s Bill Burr and Samuel L. Jackson.
So when he was asked on Good morning Britain about the “tragedy” that is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie getting divorced Jackson had an absolute A++ response.
Imagine this in your best Samuel L. Jackson voice…
The interviewer points out to Jackson that the couple’s divorce is “sad, isn’t it?”
To which Jackson replied, laughing, “Is it? Really?”
He continued, “Really? It’s life. You know people carry on. People do what they do. There’s a huge segment of America that still thinks what he did to Jennifer Aniston was just wrong, and they’re just overjoyed that the wicked witch lost a husband or whatever.”
“And I’m sure there’s another segment that thinks it is sad and it’s a dissolution of another family and all those kids or whatever, but I don’t know why it’s everybody’s business, or why people care anyway.”
Actually you don’t have to imagine it because here it is on video and it’s fucking mint…
You know who else doesn’t give a shit about Brad and Angelina breaking up? Adele. In fact, that’s literally what she said, “I couldn’t give a fucking shit.”
The other day at her concert Adele went on stage and called the Pitt-Jolie split the “end of an era” and said, “I was shocked when I woke up this morning.”
Everyone took her seriously. VERY seriously. Apparently her sarcasm didn’t come through because she had this to say at her concert Thursday night…
“I don’t care if they’ve broken up. I couldn’t give a fucking shit.” It made me out like I was heartbroken… I don’t care. I don’t know them. It didn’t work out. Break up if it doesn’t work out; that’s what I always do. Don’t work out? You leave him.”
“So I wish them both the best but I don’t care. And to be honest, I don’t think they really care what you’ve all got to say. It’s ridiculous, what’s going on in the world, and that’s front-page news.”
“I know I try and tell a lot of jokes and maybe my delivery’s not always spot on. I’m not an actual comedienne so my timing isn’t always great. I didn’t mean it. As if I went home crying that night about it, it’s ridiculous.”
