Adam Brody: I’m Partly Responsible for Brad Pitt Leaving Jennifer Aniston

Adam Brody may have had a hand in the 2005 split between Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston — if his dry sense of humor has any truth to it, that is.

"In terms [Brad and Angelina Jolie], I hooked them up," Brody, 32, deadpanned to The Huffington Post. "I was like, 'Brad, you don't want to do this, man. This Jen thing, I don't see it.' And he heeded my advice, and I'm happy for him." (Brody starred alongside Pitt and Jolie in Mr. & Mrs. Smith.)

Pitt, 48, certainly seems much happier with Jolie, 36, with whom he has six children. "Those late nights are so fun when one of them's up, or those mornings when they get up and make pancakes or something," he told Australia's 60 Minutes in 2011. "That's what it's about."

Aniston, meanwhile, dated everyone from Vince Vaughn to John Mayer before finding love with her Wanderlust costar Justin Theroux, 40. "He's a charming young man," Aniston's soap opera actor father John told Us in 2011. "I think they make a wonderful couple."
