On his uninteresting existence with Jennifer Aniston: “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.”
On Angelina: “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.”
On being subject to fabrications about his personal 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! We’ll get married when everyone can. We’re not splitting up. And we don’t have a seventh child yet.”
On being a “satisfied man”: “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.”
On learning to be a parent: “I was surprised at how automatic it is, how much of it is instinctual. And now I have a great confidence and trust in those instincts. I mean, one sound at night and you’re awake and up because they may need you. Or when they start to have a tantrum, you know to divert them from spinning out by helping them focus on something. It just goes on and on. I tell them, ‘You can make a mess, but you’ve got to clean it up.'”
– Ouch to what he said about Jennifer Aniston and their marriage! But I don’t blame him due to the fact that she put career over family and its clear that Brad Pitt longed to have children of his own. At least he finally has that now and he is happy with Angelina Jolie, they both didn’t have good luck in love and they seem to really fit and belong together, especially for Jolie who was a wild one and now she fits into the role of mother perfectly. As for Jennifer, she hasn’t been as lucky and has gone through a slew of failed relationships, hopefully one day she’ll find him and have a family of her own. What’s crazy is that the media STILL makes up stories about Brad, Angelina and Jennifer. It’s been six years and they still find stuff to write about, they need to get over their break up and the hook up that lead to six children!
Update: Brad Pitt released this statement to Usweekly due to the flack of his comment about his marriage to Jennifer…
“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.”
