Christina Applegate Opens Up About Dumping Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt might now be happily married – with many, many children – to Angelina Jolie, but he had quite the hectic love life before he finally settled down with the gorgeous brunette, and we’re not just talking about Jennifer Aniston. As Christina Applegate is forced to open up about ditching Brad Pitt mid-date in the 1980s, we remember some of his other surprising romances.

1. Christina Applegate

Christina Applegate notoriously dated Brad Pitt in the ’80s after showing up to the 1989 MTV Movie Awards together and ditching him mid-date for another man. After being quizzed about the occassion during a game of ‘Plead The Fifth’ on the show, ‘What Happens Live’, Christina admitted that she ditched him for a non-celeb and also confirmed that it marked the end of their romance. The actress then went on to play Rachel’s sister Amy in a few episodes of Friends which is a little too much for us to handle…

In one of the most surprising celebrity hook ups ever, Brad Pitt actually dated Sinitta for two whole years during the 1980s. She infamously went on to date Simon Cowell, who she is still bezzies with. We’re not sure if she is still in touch with Brad though…

4. Gwyneth Paltrow

Most people know about Brad’s liason with this other famous blonde. The two met in 1995 on the set of the movie ‘Se7en’ and became engaged. Although they split two years later, it seems there is no hard feeling between the two exes and Gwyneth has even spoken out about how he was “too good” for her and she didn’t know what she had when she had it… Well, he is Brad Pitt after all!
