Just a day after word got out that Jolie had filed for divorce from Pitt over their parenting styles, the comedian, who’s one of Jennifer Aniston’s most loyal and trusted friends, called the actress a “fucking lunatic” for wanting to raise “85 kids speaking 15 different languages.”
“Brad and Angelina always said they wouldn’t get married until everyone could get married,” Handler says in a preview for Thursday’s episode of Chelsea on Netflix. “And I always said I wouldn’t get married until they got divorced. So I’m officially accepting proposals! I’m ready!”

Handler then goes on to address the rumors surrounding the breakup. Though she avoids mentioning allegations that Pitt had cheated on Jolie with Allied co-star Marion Cotillard, who’s reportedly pregnant with her second child, the talk show host rips Brangelina a new one and pokes fun at their large brood.
“There are rumors that part of the problem was Brad was allegedly drinking and smoking too much weed,” Handler muses. “I wonder why he needed to self medicate. Maybe because he could have been spending the last 12 years at Lake Como hanging out with George Clooney and Matt Damon, instead of being stuck in a house with 85 kids speaking 15 different languages?”
“Oh yeah, because he married a f**king lunatic, that’s why!” she quips, shading Jolie. “But we should all respect their privacy during this very difficult time. So, this will be the last time I speak of this… on TV. You can follow me on Twitter.”
True to her word, Handler tweets:
Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt… he wants the China; she wants Pax and Maddox. ##sorrycouldnthelpmyself

In 2010, Handler branded Jolie as a “homewrecker” during a stand-up comedy show in New Jersey. Despite previously stating that her disdain for Jolie has “nothing to do with Jennifer,” the funnywoman revealed she just doesn’t like the Oscar winner as a person.
“She’s a homewrecker, she is,” she told the crowd. “She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants to, I don’t fucking believe you.”
