Just a few days after the interview given in Parade.com, Brad Pitt retracts his words about his ex-marriage, with actress Jen Aniston. The actor’s previous statement was that his marriage to Aniston contributed to his bored state at that time, but now he says that his words were misunderstood.
Brad Pitt’s interview to Parade magazine has made an impressing stir. The actor’s words regarding his marriage with Jennifer Aniston caused a lot of negative feedback, with fans on Jen getting pretty upset, and fans of his saying they lost respect for him. After being too harshly criticized for his choice of words, Pitt takes back his words. Or better said, he says they were misinterpreted by the media. “It grieves me that this was interpreted this way”, the 47-year-old actor says. After calling Jen “incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious”, he explains that “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”.
In his interview in Parade, he opened up about his current relationship with Angelina Jolie, with whom he has 6 kids and about his former marriage, to Aniston. “I was so intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself”, the actor answered, when asked about what made him start charity work. “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.” Most of the later articles stated that he said Jen was dull.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston met in 1998 and got married two years later. In April 2005, Aniston filed for a divorce citing irreconcilable differences. She and Pitt did not admit to a love triangle as a cause of their split, but he later admitted that he fell in love with Angelina Jolie while filming “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”.
