Mr. Pitt reveals to PARADE magazine that his marriage to Jennifer Aniston wasn’t all it was portrayed to be. Although he’s still as famous as he was during the 90s, he describes his life during that time as “pathetic.”
“I spent the ‘90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony. I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic. It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”
Well, okay then. Pitt also says that he is “satisfied” now and goes on to praise his partner Angelina Jolie.
“One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She is such a great mom. Oh, man, I’m so happy to have her.”
His comments caused a bit of a firestorm and he quickly backtracked with a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
“It grieves me that this was interpreted this way,” he said. “Jen is an incredibly giving, loving and hilarious woman who remains my friend. It is an important relationship I value greatly. The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was becoming dull to myself — and that, I am responsible for.”
Oh Brad, don’t try make me feel sorry for Jen, okay? Ugh.
