The only thing I've ever read from Jennifer about Brad after he bolted was some crack about at least now she would be able to sit on a comfortable couch in her own living room. Apparently he had sterile, modern taste in home decorating, and his taste was law.

And of course, the Vanity Fair article where she dissed Jolie.

Brad Pitt - Pretty & Stupid (http://www.prettyandstupid.com/idiot/49).

IMO, there was no need to clarify himself, but:

However, Pitt says in a statement given to CNN, that he wasn't insinuating he was unhappy or bored because he was with Jennifer Aniston, and that whatever issues he was dealing with at the time were because of his own actions.

“It grieves me that this was interpreted this way," Pitt, 47, says of his quote about his ex. " 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.”

Tabloids do not lie. Poor Bradley.

:mad:

It was not a tabloid!!! It had a glossy cover. And staples, too.


The classy thing would be for him to say nothing, or to take responsibility for what happened, and not whine. Or to explain that he was looking for a dominant, controlling woman who would tell him what to do and when to do it, and how to think about it when it was done. ;)

:eek: Insider info! So cool! So who do you know who is a part of the Jolie-Pitt camp? How long have they been a part of it??!!

If she didn't want to mention her marriage to Brad mentioned so often, I think she could have said something.
Except she doesn't mention him. He may be mentioned in the headline or in the blurb describing the article, but when you read the article, there are no quotes from her about him.

Some of those quotes weren't stupid at all. He's completely right that no one should care what he thinks about politics, for example.

I can't believe I am defending Brad, but honestly I don't think he was trying to diss Jenn. I think he was just saying he was unmotivated and stuck in a rut at that time. I can relate. I also remember when he did Interview with the Vampire. I loved the book and was very excited to see it. Back then even, Brad was complaining about how depressing it had been to make the movie and basically how unhappy he was filming it. Drove me nuts because I love the book and hated hearing him bitching about it. I remember he even felt like sharing some story about how he was in such a daze he was peeing in corners or some such stupid thing. I can't believe I remember this when I can barely remember my FSU password. :}

I do think that marriage was going to fail at some point though because they seemed to have different wants. Brad going on about wanting to be a dad in his interviews, yet always reading that Jenn wanted to wait had disaster written all over it. I think she's better off without him. Apparently there is some book out about the whole affair that paints a pretty disturbing picture of Angelina. I read an excerpt in some magazine and it claims she set out to seduce him. She apparently had a trailer full of sex toys that really got his attention, and she shamelessly used her son. I have no idea if any of this stuff is true or not, but I remember thinking if he was easily swayed and tempted he was no real loss. I also never read that Jenn was ever pregnant. I think that was Courtney Cox she was very open about her infertility issues. Its funny that about half the Friends cast were tabloid staples and the other half you barely heard anything about.

IIRC Pitt is really into modernist architecture and design, so I can believe this. Some of that furniture is awesomely beautiful but not very practical to sit on day-to-day :lol:

And I agree with Rex that Aniston (and/or her PR people) did play up the "Widow Pitt" angle for a while...I remember quite a few "Jennifer: Will She Ever Be Happy Again?"-type stories and interviews after the breakup and divorce. I have to admit that I kind of feel sorry for her now with the "Jennifer & Justin: Getting Serious" and "Jennifer Has a Baby Bump!!!" stories every week in the tabloids. Even if you are a celeb it can't be easy to get a genuine relationship going with that kind of micro-attention.

I think how people are about their exes, says a lot about their character and whether or not they are trustworthy. It takes an awful lot of trust, to get involved in an intimate relationship with an individual and sometimes the relationship doesn't work out. Rarely is it just one person's fault, and there's something really classeless about an individual who is bitter enough to air out all of the dirty details to all involved.

I much prefer people who are classy enough to not "kiss and tell" And I think its especially the case when we are talking about mutual friends. It depends on the case. You might be a very private person and usually say very little about your relationships which has been working fine for you for years, and then you get into an abusing relationship. The longer you stay quiet about it, the longer it's going to last if not escalate. I can't think about anything more demoralizing than expecting an abused person to stay quiet about their abuse because they might not be classy for spilling the beans, or because "it's their private problem" etc. So it's never black and white.

I think famous people should be more careful about what they say about their relationships. Especially if they're involved with other famous people. Of course, in case of an abusing relationship they should be able to speak up like everyone else. But it doesn't seem like a case here.

Like someone else pointed out, the Jeniffer - Brad - Angelina triangle have been a hot (touchy?) topic for years. Whatever any of them says, that has to do with the three of them, will be taken apart word by word and criticized so they all should be extra careful. Especially Brad and Angelina since it's a fact they got together while Brad was still married. Oh but you were bored? I feel for you, Brad. Please.

If Brad's so happy about his current life, why not concentrate on it? Why specifically contrast it with the time he was married to Jeniffer? I think he at least owes Jeniffer the courtesy of leaving her out of it.

But of course he's free to do as he pleases. I've always found Brad dull-looking, mediocre as an actor, now I'm glad to find out he's also a little bit of an ass so I'm not really losing anything by not liking him more. :P

:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:.. ..maybe now I understand why he married Angelina but even with this explanation, I don't think I will ever truly comprehend what he (or any other man) sees in her. :confused::confused:

So, Brad, you like to be dominated by your women? Should have called me, babe. :D

As for Brad, himself, he is one of the very, very, (and I do mean very) few Hollywood actors who enjoy a "truly nice-guy" reputation in Tinsel Town.

Well there are exceptions to every rule and abusive relationships are one of them. We are talking about a crime here. I wouldn't keep that private. But I think in general there's something to be said for people who keep things private. A good example would be Kate Middleton refusing to give interviews after William and her broke up. Versus Diana giving interviews about her and Charles issues.

I can speak in general as a child that I was really hurt by my mom deciding to go off on my father a lot as a kid and what went down in their relationship. She's hurled accusations against my Dad she can't prove and well I was freaking 3 at the time. Even if her accusations are 100% true, he's still my Dad. He's still in many ways been a good Dad to me, he's not perfect, but I love him. Even with cheating is it really necessary to tell everyone you know and put mutual friends in the spot etc?

In this case Brad left Jen for another woman pretty much. Now the thing is for Brad to leave Jen for another woman, probably means there were problems with him and Jen that had nothing to do with Angie. It might not be all of his fault. I suspect the children thing does have legs. At the end of the day the least Brad could do was not badmouth Jen to the press. (And Jen hasn't said anything that bad) This being said perhaps Brad did say things just wrongly and at least he reworded his words.

Agreed that it's not the same as what Ange did re: Brad being married, but it certainly doesn't make what Jen did here okay

What Jen did? What did she do? He was the one who made the choice to end his current relationship to be with Jen. Happens all the time. Choices were made, there was no cheating, one relationship ended and another began.

Actually we don't know if there was no cheating involved. What people say and what people actually do are 2 totally different things. The whole triangle is ridiculous and I don't get why their is still this obsession about it. The other part that annoys me is that he was also with Gwenyth Paltrow in the 90's, so why specifically mention Aniston in this interview?

I agree what did Jen do that was so wrong IF no cheating was involved. I fully subscribe to the belief that unless there is a ring on the finger the person hasn't fully made their choice. HUGE difference between dating someone and publically vowing to committ to said person for life.

Now if Jen was sneaking around with Justin behind Heidi's back, I'd disagree with that. But if all she did was be friendly/flirty and let the guy make his choice, I don't see how she's the most horrible person ever. I know plenty of people who meet the person they eventually married while they were dating someone else.

Now of course you have to wonder if he'll leave her for me. And I certainly wouldn't waste my time on a guy who had a long term girlfriend or try to do anything underhanded. But huge difference between dating and married, and even long term dating and married. If you dated for that long and never married there's a reason for it...
