Brad Pitt about Jennifer Aniston marriage: “My life was not interesting”.
Brad Pitt, who is promoting his new film Moneyball, gave an interview to Parade magazine and made incredible comments about his marriage with Jennifer Aniston and told how content he is with Angelina Jolie.
Brad Pitt, 47, told Parade:
“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.”
At one moment, Brad Pitt had an astonishing remark about his life with Jennifer Aniston:
“I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”
Brad Pitt married Aniston, 41, in 2000 after dating her in the 1990s.
The couple split five years later soon after Brad Pitt filmed Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Angelina Jolie, 36.
Since then, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have gone on to have six children, three of whom they adopted.
Brad Pitt continued: “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.”
The comments were more than scathing, considering Jennifer Aniston has made no secret of her desire to be a mother.
In contrast to his life in the 1990s, Brad Pitt said he is now very content.
“I put much more emphasis on being a satisfied man. 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. That’s the trade-off. But I’ll take it all.”
Willing to dish to the press about secrets of his first marriage, Brad Pitt, who is currently filming World War Z, is far less happy when the press intrudes on his current private life.
“I mean, how many stories have you read that aren’t true, stories about me and Angie being married or fighting or splitting up? And when we don’t split up, there’s a whole new round that we’ve made up and we’re back together again!” the actor explained.
“We’ll get married when everyone can. We’re not splitting up. And we don’t have a seventh child yet.”
Brad Pitt’s comments were made during his promotional tour for Moneyball, which opens in the U.S. on September 23.
