Promoting her Netflix show Chelsea in Grazia UK, the talk host called Angelina Jolie a “f***ing lunatic” following her September split from Brad Pitt after two years of marriage and 12 years together.
“I made one comment on my show that got completely blown out of all proportion," she said. “I am being quoted as if I live with them…I’m just saying what everyone else is thinking.”
Originally recording a video segment for her show in support of Hillary Clinton, the talk eventually turned to her close friend Jen.
The 41-year-old comedian, who was one of a small group of friends who accompanied Jennifer and her husband Justin Theroux on their honeymoon to Bora Bora last year, promised Jen doesn’t really care about Brangelina all these years later.
“It's so stupid and pathetic,” she says. “As if Jen cares – she doesn't care. It's ridiculous that people still drag her into this. Hello, as if she is sitting around even caring about this.”
She also defended her pal when the topic of her baby bump or not a baby bump came up. Jen wrote a piece for the Huffington Post in July basically telling everyone to leave her alone on the subject of children. “I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up," she wrote, and Chelsea was happy that she did.
“It was just so nice for her to finally respond to it,” says Chelsea. “It doesn't matter how famous or rich or wealthy or, you are, you're still able to get your feelings hurt. That is a person, that's a human being that is constantly being scrutinized. I hope it helped people see the pain that it is causing with the presumption and the obsessions and the nonsense.”
Wouldn’t you want Chelsea as a friend?
