Brad Pitt Tries to Backtrack on Those Jennifer Aniston Remarks

Remember Brad Pitt said this yesterday about ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, more or less calling her sadsack ass dull?:

“ … 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, he’s changing his mind. Now he’s saying that his quote was misinterpreted, and that he actually meant that she was wonderful, amazing, talented, and whatever else her emotional training coach forced Brad to say to the public or face the wrath of bitter tears and a new boyfriend’s heinous beard. Example:

“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. 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.”

But what about the part about pretending that the marriage was something that it wasn’t? Or that that directly had something to do with his life being “dull,” as he said? I’m glad he “clarified” for us, but I’m not really sure exactly what it is that he clarified.

  • What bothers me is that back in 2006, commentators jumped all over Jen if she even alluded to the breakup of her recent 5-year marriage, saying she’s pathetic for not moving on even though the breakup was relatively recent. But now that Brad is dumping on Jen six years after their breakup, nobody’s commenting that he needs to move on. It’s just sexist double-standards bullshit.
    And he’s probably making these comments to garner publicity for his new movie.

    • i disagree, todd. people six years ago were freaking out wondering why such a thing would happen, and everyone was pissed off because brad pitt wouldn’t say a damn thing to the press as to why their marriage went belly up, cheating allegations aside. stuff comes up sometiems, and though it doesn’t make it right, pitt had his reasons for wanting the marriage to end whether it was because he was borning, jenn was boring or otherwise. people asked why it happened and brad answered. was he supposed to pretend for the sake of jens feelings? i’m sure it was somethign she was probably aware of anyway.
