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.”
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.
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.”
