After nearly a decade of marriage, actors James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) and Anne-Marie Duff (Shameless) are divorcing. The pair met in 2004 while co-starring on the British comedy series Shameless, where McAvoy played Duff’s love interest. They married roughly two years later, in October 2006.
Duff, 45, and McAvoy, 37, have a five-year-old son, Brendan, and their public statement emphasizes his needs amidst this tumult:
“It is with tremendous sadness that we have come to the decision to divorce...We enter this next phase with continued friendship, love and respect for one another, and the shared focus of caring for our son. We ask that you respect our, and most importantly, our child’s privacy during this time.”
In case you were curious as to whether comedian Chelsea Handler still despises Angelia Jolie, yes, she still despises Angelina Jolie. In the past, she has cast all manner of aspersions on the actress, referring to her during a show in Newark as a “cunt,” a “home wrecker,” and a “fucking bitch.” She has also called Jolie a “demon,” which — damn.
Handler is pals with Jennifer Aniston, so if her distaste for Jolie seems a little intense, it’s perhaps not unsurprising. She especially has doubled down on the charge that Brad Pitt’s current wife is a “non-girl’s girl.” And in the first episode of Handler’s new Netflix show, Chelsea, she takes yet another swing. Via the Washington Post:
“While talking to her friend Drew Barrymore during the show’s premiere, Handler—who is known to be good friends with Jennifer Aniston—said ‘I think most women support women. If you’re a girl you should kind of like other girls, and if you don’t, your name’s Angelina Jolie.’”
To be sure, this is a hatred as green as the evergreen. Jolie, I suspect, could not care less.
