BRAD PITT will never miss an episode of FRIENDS - because it's often the only way he'll get to see his wife JENNIFER ANISTON.
At a party thrown for OSCAR winners JULIA ROBERTS and STEVEN SODERBERGH in a Las Vegas hotel where Soderbergh's star-packed OCEAN'S 11 (2001) is filming, Pitt arrived late telling revellers GEORGE CLOONEY, MATT DAMON and ELLIOT GOULD he was watching Aniston's hit sitcom, adding, "I have to spend time with my wife."
His Ocean's 11 (2001) co-star Gould, who left the party early to fly to Los Angeles and tape the season finale of FRIENDS, in which he plays the father of COURTENEY COX ARQUETTE and DAVID SCHWIMMER's characters, says that he told a thrilled Aniston of her husband's devotion. "Jen was so pleased," Gould says. (LE/P/PDD)
