Brad Pitt back pedals on Jen Aniston marriage diss
Brad Pitt tried to smooth over his comments about his marriage to Jennifer Aniston in the upcoming Parade Magazine. During a recent interview, he let slip these comments:
"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," he said.
Pitt realized that he his comments would become tabloid fodder and immediately released a statement on the yet-unprinted magazine:
"It grieves me that this was interpreted this way," he said. "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.”
So Aniston can rest easy that he wasn't calling her "dull" -- but he does gush about his current marriage to Angelina Jolie:
"I’m satisfied with making true choices and finding the woman I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much," he said.
Meanwhile, though, he didn't issue any statement about the agony he felt while filming the original sexy-vampire hit (before Twilight came in to milk the genre), Interview with the vampire.
In a candid interview with Entertainment Weekly magazine, he described his unhappiness about playing in the hit flick:
"'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.’”
Ouch. And judging by his lack of comment about that film, he meant every word.
