Team Aniston or Team O'Reilly? Yesterday, a heated debate began in the blogosphere after Bill O'Reilly called Jennifer Aniston "destructive to our society," in response to her remarks endorsing single motherhood while publicizing her new comedy, The Switch.
Today, a friend of Angelina Jolie has reportedly told Popeater's Rob Shuter that the Salt star -- who infamously fell for Brad Pitt as he was splitting from Aniston -- would side with Aniston over O'Reilly on the controversial issue, in a heartbeat.
"Angie would totally defend Jennifer on this," the source says. "She agrees with Jennifer that a woman doesn't need a man to start a family to be a good mother. For Bill to take issue with this statement is him taking issue with every single parent in the world." The source went on to point out that Jolie was raised by a single mom and began her own journey to parenthood by adopting her son Maddox as a single mom.
Meanwhile, Beth Feldman, founder of RoleMommy.com told Popeater, "I don't think 12 or 13 year-olds are paying attention to what Jennifer Aniston says or even know who she is, for that matter," adding, "If Demi Lovato or Miranda Cosgrove started tossing around comments about single motherhood, we would all have something to worry about. Jen's message is meant for thirty- and forty-something women who haven't yet met the love of their life -- and she's right on target."
Though Aniston was invited by O'Reilly to defend herself on his show, we doubt she'll take him up on it. And while O'Reilly would love fans to see him as a culture "warrior," it sure sounds like he's bridging differences between two movie stars frequently seen as rivals!
