Referring to Pitt’s ex Angelina Jolie as “her-whose-name-will-not-be-mentioned,” the veteran singer-songwriter made it clear which side of the long-storied Hollywood love triangle she was on. “You know what, I loved Brad and Jen together; they were beautiful,” she told host Andy Cohen. “And I believe they will always remain friends because they’re two very special people that can, you know, get through anything. I hope that their friendship lasts… Those were the glory days, like you were saying! I remember those days.”
(The former spouses famously reigned as Hollywood’s Golden Couple from 1998 to their separation in 2005, following Pitt’s reported on-set affair with Jolie while filming the action-romance blockbuster Mr. and Mrs. Smith.)
During the show, Etheridge also serenaded viewers with her 1994 hit “Come to My Window,” performing the classic song on acoustic guitar for Cohen’s nightly Moment of Mazel. “I would dial the numbers just to listen to your breath/I would stand inside my hell and hold the hand of death/ You don’t know how far I’d go to ease this precious ache/ And you don’t know how much I’d give, or how much I can take,” she crooned while a delighted Cohen waved a lighter up to the camera.
