Brad Pitt may have seemed to slam Jennifer Aniston in a recent interview, but according to a close friend the divorced couple are still friends.
"For a long time I thought I did too much damage - drug damage," Pitt said in an interview. "I was a bit of a drifter. [I was] a guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years f***ing off. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity."
Pitt's close friend said that when Pitt met Jolie, he was just ready for a change.
“I think Brad was ready to soar when he met Angie,” Jean Black said. “This is not to say anything negative about Jennifer. I was part of that and I know that he and Jen are very good friends and he cared deeply for her. But in Angie, he saw a very adventurous person who was grabbing on to life and taking it to its nth degree. It was intriguing because I felt Brad had that in him and wanted to unleash it.”
