LOS ANGELES: Brad Pitt does not sing praises of ex-wife Jennifer Aniston in a new magazine interview. In fact, he describes their former marriage as kind of a ‘drag’.
The 47-year-old Pitt said in a profile by Parade magazine, posted on the publication’s website on Thursday, that he is now a ‘satisfied man’ in his relationship with Angelina Jolie.
Pitt and “Friends” star Aniston were married in 2000, and he has largely avoided talking about his ex-wife since their 2005 divorce, but now the star seems to have let loose and has compared his new life with Jolie, with whom he is raising six kids, favourably to the five years he spent married to Aniston. “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,” Pitt told Parade.
“I think that my marriage (to Aniston) had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t,” he added. He adds that one of the ‘smartest things’ he ever did was to make Jolie the mother of his kids, reports mirror.uk.
In the magazine interview, Pitt also said he spent the 1990s ‘trying to hide out’. “I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out,” he said in the interview.
The interview has been making rounds since it was put on the magazine’s website on September 15, and Pitt has issued a clarification stating; “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,” reported E! News.
