Brad Pitt has issued a statement after an interview he gave with Parade magazine was released and in it it appeared he was insulting Jennifer Aniston in their marriage saying it was dull. He was quoted as saying:
"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," Pitt said about the tail-end of his marriage to Aniston, which lasted from 2000 to 2005. "I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't."
He also lamented that he spent much of the '90s "trying to hide out," adding, "I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out."
We all tore the Bradster a new one because it's like WTF is wrong with you saying something like that after all of these years after you left the woman for Angelina Jolie. It's like pouring salt into a wound. Then he goes on to say about Angelina:
"I'm satisfied with making true choices and finding the woman I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much. A family is a risky venture, because the greater the love, the greater the loss," he said. "That's the trade-off. But I'll take it all. … 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."
That statement you can almost interpret as a jab being in there, but Brad is so very sad by the way it was all interpreted and issued this statement:
"It grieves me that this was interpreted this way. Jen is an incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious woman who remains my friend. It is an important relationship I value greatly," he explained in the statement released through his talent agency. "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."
Are you buying his apology? I mean he could have elaborated in the Parade interview. The dude has been in show business long enough to know that what he said was bound to be interpreted. Remember Angelina Jolie doesn't have a PR person. She is a MASTERMIND at that game. So perhaps Brad learned a thing or two from her and this is all very calculated. When you lose trust in someone it's kind of hard to believe anything that comes out of their mouth. It's like crying wolf, you know?
What do you think, is this a sincere apology or just keeping it all out there for 'Moneyball'?
