Talk Show Hosts Riff On Brangelina Divorce

"It’s pretty scary when even Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are like, ‘Eh, we can do better.' "

The Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie divorce proved irresistible for late night talk show hosts on Tuesday.

James Corden of “The Late Late Show” said: “I’m taking this news especially hard because I named my daughter Brangelina. Feels like a mistake now.” (Watch the video above. The Brangelina comments start at 1:56.)

Later melding the news with politics, Corden joked: “In the face of a Donald Trump presidency, Brad and Angelina’s marriage was the last hope for immigrants to be welcomed into this country.”

Stephen Colbert of “The Late Show” informed viewers that the divorce papers Jolie filed were “citing irreconcilable attractiveness.” 

Jimmy Kimmel (watch below) quipped on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”: “Apparently the reason they’re getting divorced is she talked about ‘Fight Club’ and he specifically asked her not to do that.” The host also took a jab at the public to maintain perspective: “It’s always hard when two people you don’t know and have no personal connection to split up,” he said.

“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon (watch below in the same clip) said, “It’s pretty scary when even Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are like, ‘Eh, we can do better.’”

Conan O’Brien chimed in as well, saying that the two mega-stars will “share custody 50-50. He’ll take 50 kids, and she’ll take the other 50.”
