Alanis Doesn’t Give a Sh*t About Ryan Reynolds
As someone who’s gone through her share of H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E break-ups, I always thought that it would be pretty much the worst thing ever to be famous and feel the world weigh in on the shattering of your heart. The whole Jen, Angelina, Brad Pitt debacle seemed like a nightmare (especially for Jen. Girl got the short end of the stick), and recently, watching Alanis Morissette break up with , and subsequently lose, Ryan Reynolds to ScarJo basically solidified my notion that ending a relationship while famous sucks.
I kinda felt the Alanis / Ryan destruction because I’ve always identified with Miss M. She’s this earthy, hippie chick — attractive but not striking — who feels emotions really strongly and is into singing vowels her own way. Aside from the vowel thing, I saw myself in Alanis. And so when she lost her hot fiance to someone younger, with bigger boobs, and probably a smaller brain — I felt her pain. Because, I mean…it’s quite possible the same thing has happened to me.
Recently, Alanis went on the Howard Stern show and (kind of) dished about the end of her relationship. The great part about the interview is how much Howard and his staff seem to dislike Reynolds — doesn’t everyone want a chorus of hatred toward their Ex after a breakup? Alanis holds her own, continues to be the “enlightened” hippie chick, and seems to revel just the tiniest bit in the anti-Ryan jokes being thrown around.
The only hitch? She seems just a little too calm. A little too centered. Something about her attitude is off-putting. Does anyone else out there agree?
Or maybe I’m just jealous that she got her life back together so soon after the walls crumbled in.
