Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie's Wax Figures Have Been Separated, & It Puts Robert Pattinson In An Awkward Position
In the realest depiction of the expression "art imitates life" that ever was, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's wax figures were separated at Madame Tussauds wax museum in London following the announcement of their divorce. The museum's official Twitter handle shared the apt news with a photo on Wednesday — and it looks like Robert Pattinson's wax figure is awkwardly caught in the middle of all the drama (literally).
"Following the news that has shocked celebrity watchers worldwide, we can confirm we have separated Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's figures," the museum announced on Twitter, accompanied by a picture of the separated figures, complete with R. Pattz's statue right in between the two.
"We reacted quickly to yesterday's news of the separation of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their plans to divorce by mirroring the separation in the attraction," a spokesperson for the museum said in a statement, according to E! News. "The couple's wax figures, which were launched in 2013, have been split up and are now featured at a respectful distance from each other. Angelina is keeping Nicole Kidman company and Brad Pitt is with his several time co-star Morgan Freeman."
And Pattinson, well, he's just awkwardly standing around caught in the middle of the biggest celeb breakup since Pitt's divorce from Aniston in 2005. Just look at the look on his face:
Of course, the biggest question here is why Pattinson? Truth be told, it's probably because they needed a wax figure in the middle to look ~aesthetically pleasing~, since it would be awkward with just a big space in the middle — and I guess Pattinson did the trick. (Can you imagine if they put Jennifer Aniston's wax figure there instead? OMG.)
Still, this photo of Pattinson's wax figure just chillin' in the middle of a huge celeb divorce will never fail to make me laugh. Obviously, his wax figure was created way before the museum placed him in between of Jolie and Pitt, but the awkward smirk he seems to be giving is just too darn fitting. Pattinson is notoriously awkward and shy in the public eye, so to find himself smack in the center of a hugely publicized celebrity divorce... tell me that look isn't in reaction to his random-ass placement between the two stars.
TFW you're in the middle of the Brangelina divorce, for real.
