So yesterday, the internet was exploding because Brad Pitt gave an interview were he said that his marriage to Jennifer Aniston was pretending the “marriage was something that it wasn’t” and that the two were leading very uninteresting lives.
Now, Brad Pitt is claiming his words were taken out of context and that he has only happy memories from his time with Jennifer.
Okay, let me explain the term “taken out of context” that’s like when Brad Pitt says the word “yes” in an interview and then some blogger is like, “Did Brad Pitt say he and Angelina are expecting quintuplets and planning their own TLC reality show on the moon? His answer was ‘yes.’”
Anyways, let’s watch Brad explain his way out of this one.
He released the statement, “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.”
The original quote that unintentionally dissed Aniston was from an interview that Brad gave to the magazine, Parade.
This is what he said, “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," he tells the magazine. "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 Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t."
After the quote, everyone interpreted it for what they thought it was, which is that Jen and Brad’s relationship was “pretend” and that it contributed to his uninteresting life.
Well, Brad claims that his mid 90’s woes were all specifically about his career choices and not his relationship. It also wasn’t helping things that in the same interview he was saying things like:
“One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom.”
C’mon man? Really? Throw Aniston a bone!
Regardless, Brad says any of his past unhappiness was all because of his career, in Entertainment Weekly he laments about of his earlier roles in the film, “Interview with a Vampire.”
“I am miserable. Six months in the f-cking dark. Contact lenses, makeup, I’m playing the bitch role. One day, it broke me…I called David Geffen, who was a producer…I said, ‘David, I can’t do this anymore. I can’t do it. How much will it take to get me out?’ and he goes, very calmly, ‘Forty million dollars.” Reveals Brad.
