Aniston Says Pitt Missing 'Sensitivity
August 2, 2005
The world watched as Jennifer Aniston's fairytale marriage
to Brad Pitt fell apart. Now, for the first time since

to tears was when Bennetts asked about the rumor that
Jolie may be pregnant with Pitt's child. "She looked
like she had been stabbed in the heart," Bennetts
revealed. "And she cried for several long minutes.
She was really overwhelmed by that and wouldn't say
Aniston did, however, have plenty of angry words to
say about the reports that her marriage ended because
Pitt wanted children and she didn't.

which would mean she'd be pregnant right now,"
Bennetts said. "But instead, her husband, his attention
