IT’S BEEN 20 YEARS since Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston married; and 15 since their explosive split. And yet I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who woke up one morning last week to a stream of the same photograph flooding my social media feeds. So why does the Brad and Jen romance still evoke such a strength of feeling in us all? Writer Hannah Betts tackles just that on page 20, as we also tell the story behind what’s already set to be one of the defining A-list images of 2020…. MAIN COVER PHOTO: GETTY. ADDITIONAL COVER PHOTOS: JASON LLOYD-EVANS, SPLASH NEWS. THIS PAGE: GETTY, JASON LLOYD-EVANS, ED MILES, BACKGRID, DAVID TITLOW, MARCO VITTUR…

Has there been racism? Yes, but I’m not convinced it’s the prevailing factor. I think the real reasons Meghan has struggled for acceptance are gender and nationality. She’s too feminist, too outspoken, too empathetic, and too American. If she’d been a mixed-race European woman, more in the traditional, dutiful mould still expected of British royal wives, I bet she would have been given a much kinder ride.

letter of the week

LEAVE MEGHAN ALONE The outcry over Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down as senior royals is astounding (Megxit: planned for months, 20 Jan). It has caused more outcry than the far more upsetting scandal concerning Prince Andrew. I feel a bit sad, but the way many are reacting is like the couple have acted criminally or betrayed them personally. And all the blame seems to be on Meghan. The negative comments targeting her are unfair. All the negativity, racism, misogyny and outcry has to stop. People need to spend their energy on more serious issues. Less Megxit, more Brexit!

Being ‘woke’ is something to aspire to, not denigrate “The rise and fall of trends and buzzwords means that what was cool yesterday can quickly morph into something we roll our eyes at today. Recently, the word ‘woke’ has been bastardised by a public figure proudly declaring he ‘wouldn’t date a woke woman’ and another praising him for ‘terrorising the Wokerati’. Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan were derided as ‘the oppressive King and Queen of Woke’. But when that word means a person has an awareness of racial and social injustice, we need to be careful it doesn’t turn into a slur. Mock the word all you like, as long as the act of acknowledging and caring about inequality never goes out of fashion.”…

is #tradwife really a thing and, if so, can we make #radwife happen?

WHAT DO I THINK about #tradwife, the movement (allegedly) sweeping Twitter, American and – as of last week – British households? Apparently, women are encouraged to do less in the way of earning a living, buggering off to the gym when they fancy it, getting drunk on a school night and generally pleasing their selfish selves, and rather more in the way of cooking, cleaning, child-rearing and refreshing their lipstick in advance of their husbands arriving back from the office and demanding supper, which lil wifey has, of course, lovingly prepared in advance. How do I feel about the wholesale promotion of a regressive, anti-feminist half-life, which casts the woman as supporting artist in the great oeuvre that is the man’s work, reduces her to semi-housebound breeder, nurturer and cheerleader,…

1. Non-mover J-LO The leopard. The crop. The hoops. Her workout style principles do not vary, and yet, somehow, manage to get better. 2. New in THE FACE OF FUDGE Ref last week’s Love Island, when new girl Rebecca arrived as the finale to the lapdance challenge. Aka: ‘Siri, show us the dictionary definition of instant sexually-motivated jealousy.’ 3. New in KAI South Korean actor/singer/ model, yadda yadda, also: pure fashion plate. Evidence? See how he worked florals with checks with pinstripes at Gucci last week! Just see! 4. Up SAMUEL L JACKSON In his blazer of many colours (it’s a Joseph reference: how can you not know that?) on the promotional trail of film The Last Full Measure. 5. Non-mover RETRO REID Susanna, long-serving goddess of breakfast TV, long-suffering foil to our mucker Piers Morgan, posted a vintage pic of herself last week…
