Pitt Slams Aniston Marriage, Calls It “Pathetic”

[ Life]

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were once quite the pair. Their marriage lasted five years before the two called it quits in 2005. Looking back on it, Pitt says his marriage to Aniston was “pathetic.”

In a 2011 interview with the World War Z star in Parade Magazine, Pitt reflects upon his marriage with the Friends star. He told the magazine that his marriage with Aniston had basically devolved into him “sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out.” He then said that it started to feel “pathetic.”

He went on to say that he was so absorbed in trying to “find a movie about an interesting life” that his real life became uninterested. He partially blames his marriage to Aniston for the feeling by saying that he was “trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”

This all may sound like Pitt blames Aniston for the above, but that’s not the case says the star. He says that he means he was becoming dull to himself in the marriage, and the blame fell on himself. He holds that Aniston “is an incredibly giving, loving and hilarious woman.”

In a more recent interview with Esquire Magazine, Pitt refers to the 2011 interview saying that he was a “drifter” during his marriage to Aniston. He also said that he spent the years during the marriage just “f*cking off.” He finally started to move on after an “epiphany” caused him to feel that he was “wasting [his] opportunity.”

As for his current life, Pitt says that he’s “satisfied” in his relationship with Angelina Jolie. The two raise children they have adopted from around the world and are regular activists for various causes. In fact, Jolie was raising awareness for breast cancer last week when she announced that she had undergone a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of developing the cancer. In the op-ed announcement, she urged other women to get tested for breast cancer, and to not be afraid of the surgery.

    Brad went from a woman that wanted to change her hairstyle to a woman that wanted to change the world! It took me a while to understand that.

    • Winnona

      Brad needs to keep his mouth shut. You don’t hear Jennifer making statements, and she the one that got really hurt. All
      marriages go thru bad periods, sometimes you make it and sometimes you don’t, Angeline wanted Brad and she got him, maybe next time it will be her. Men like Brad are always looking.

        you got that right, winnona, he got what he deserves, trash, ugly old trash, just like him. Jennifer too classy a lady and woman for him, what she saw in him is beyond me. Go back to your cave with beastwoman, and have a nice life.

  • angel

    I dont think he really said anything we did not already know . From what I always understood and read
    brad wanted children and anistan did not so he moved on and who better than a super hot angelina who wants tons of kids.

    • http://facebook toots

      she’s not super hot, she’s superficial and all about her. Please, when he’s tired of running all over the world to protect their ‘children’ trust me, HE WILL BE GONE PROBABLY UNRECOGNIZABLE WITH OUT HER TON OF MAKEUP TO HIDE UNDER ON

  • http://twitter haley

    And aren’t we special Brad Pitt. You and Angeline make me sick. You are just a couple of publicity hounds that will say and do anything to get in the news. You don’t care who you hurt along the way. You too are sickening.

  • Lynda Mays

    Mr Pitt is pathetic. He apparently feels the state of his life was the result/fault of his marriage or his wife. No one can make you pathetic but yourself. What is pathetic is the fact that he didn’t have the balls to leave an unhappy situation until he found a woman who felt no qualms about carrying on with a married man when she wasn’t making out with her brother to make him less pathetic. Ms. Aniston is lucky to be out of a relationship with such a toxic man. BTW from what everyone says I commend her for putting up with a man who doesn’t feel hygine is high on his agenda..in other words he stinks…in more ways than one.

  • Dee

    Pitt, now I know why you never did anything for me….if you’re boring to yourself, imagine how you are to others….BORING !!!

  • janet

    Brad Pitt is the pathetic one. He cheated on Aniston, broke her heart in front of millions of people to go with a big lips Angelina. Give me a break! She is an adultress who destroyed what Brad and Aniston had together. I don’t know why women drool over Pitt. I never saw him as anything, but a cheat,a liar,someone who doesn’t deserve a sweet lady like Aniston. I am thrilled that Jennifer is going to marry someone who actually cares for her. I wish them all the best. As for Pitt and Angelina remember that payback is a bitch.

  • beme

    Wow he is pathetic. His epiphany has a name it is Angelina Jolie. Hey he was wasting an opportunity to the woman that married him as he went looking for love in Angelina Jolie… what a waste. The only thing here that he said of any truth is that Aniston is a incredibly giving, loving and hilarious woman.

  • Pam

    who gives a rat’s ass

  • http://Yahoo Darlene

    Too bad Brad bases his happiness on other people, rather than himself.

  • Richard

    He can’t “let her go”, that’s why he keeps talking about her.

    I couldn’t “let go” of my ex-girlfriend for a while either (even though I wanted her to be gone). I used to keep referring to her as “Crack-Whore”, but my Mom pointed out to me that I should “let go”. She was right!

  • Shell-Belle

    Why is this even being brought back up? The last time he said anything negative about his marriage to Aniston was 2 years ago. “Pathetic” to have to re-hash old news.

  • Mary

    I think he was describing his current situation.

  • Paul Malhabour

    Brad Pitt is pathetic not his marriage to Aniston. Leave Jennifer alone, the woman moved on long time ago. She probably does not care one way or another now that her success has sky rocketed and you for one has taken the toll of being with Jolie that turned you into an old looking loser.

  • Jonathan

    So was/is your acting PITT!! Give it up and take out stock in botox for your wipes lips!!

  • Annette

    Well in my opinion Brad is a JERK. I was a brad fan and I am still a Jennifer fan. Let’s face it, he hooked up with Angolina while he was still married to Jennifer. I don’t think we can actually comment on whatever happened in their marriage, but for the most part we do know he cheated. It is a good thing what they are doing with the children, but let’s face it he is a cheater. And by the way, we don’t know who has slept with whom unless we were there. Brad was out of line for the comments he made about Jennifer, after all she is not slamming him about anything.

  • gemini77375

    Brad is pretty cruel. He cheated on Jen when he and the pitiful Ms Joli were shooting Mr and Mrs Smith. He was not worthy of Jen. I say Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish. He and Angelina deserve one another.

  • Liz

    REALLY? with all that’s going on in the world? Who gives a fuck about these two that make millions what has this country become???

  • Kerry

    He isn’t even worthy of being called a douchebag!

  • Liz

    Who really gives a fuck?????

  • anna

    what a horrible horrible article!!! did you really have nothing more newsworthy to write about it? How about researching a career change, it would do you good.

  • http://www.foxcrawl.com Foxcrawl

    Poor Angelina. She is afraid that she will get cancer after her mother died of the same condition. ufff, tough life

  • Sharon J. Gilman

    Seriously? Where did you learn how to write? Where did you learn to title your articles? This misleads the readers to think he’s making these comments right now, instead of two years ago. Or that he is referring to her upcoming marriage with her fiance. You should ask for a refund on your bachelors degree. And stick to writing about gaming.

  • http://pronews Destiny

    This headline was very misleading. I thought just from the headline that he was slamming her future marriage, since she is engaged. Brad Pitt and drugs is old news. I always liked Angelina Jolie until this business with the double mastectomy. That’s just pure foolishness. Why choose to remove healthy breasts on the off chance that YOU MIGHT get breast cancer. That’s mental. Breast cancer is real, it isn’t a game, and the healthy thing to do is Get your mammograms and stay on top of it with your Doctor. Don’t butcher yourself. I am from a family of survivors from breast cancer. I find it offensive that someone would do something that others have to have, due to illness. Be aware, check your breasts for lumps at least once a month. If you find one no matter how small see your Doctor and be proactive about treatment. If in fact it turns out that you do have breast cancer, which I pray you won’t, remember that there are survivors and you can be one too. I know wrong article to be ranting on Jolie.

  • Michael Weaster

    Thank god he is a good actor because he sucks as a person.

  • Jennifer

    He *still* isn’t doing anything. He went from one relationship where he wasn’t doing anything to another relationship where he isn’t doing anything. Why does he have to live vicariously through the women in his life instead of defining his life on his own? No wonder he was unhappy. That is a lot to put on another person. It’s co-dependent and unhealthy is what it is. But Angelina needed someone to take care of her in her depressive, druggie neediness and he needed someone to take care of in his depressive druggie neediness. And it seems to work better for them than anything else has. I feel bad for the pain that Jennifer went through, but she is better off in a healthy relationship with Justin. Let the two walking wounded have each other. Let Jennifer and Justin have the sunshine. And let the news crew get a clue.

  • nic

  • http://noo vic

  • Jen

    Nine times out of ten when your pointing fingers at someone you’re jealous of them and what they have…and when you point fingers 3 are always pointing back at you!!!!!

  • marky mark


  • http://yahoo Kim

    Yeah he is the one who was doing drugs and drifting not her so she is boring because she has a normal life – his ego is too big for his britches!

  • Kristine

    I didn’t bother to read the article…the only pathetic name I read is Mr. Pitt…and Ms. Jolie is right along side. I used to like both of them, as of a few years ago, not so much.

  • NK

    No, it does not sound like Pitt was blaming Aniston – despite your best efforts to make it appear so in the title, and first half of the article.

  • sugar

    well, yeah brad. What else can be expected when a gay man marries a woman- duh

    • alessa

      If you have a chance check: Brad Pitt’s Best Bits pictures special.
      In Gay Spy , July 10th, 2011. There is a picture of him that proves your point. I couldn’t uploaded

  • nate

    Speaking of someone whos pathetic.

  • Sharon Nelson

    Shame on Brad Pitt.

  • Patsy

    Why – if Brad is so happy – does he keep referring back to his prior marriage during these interviews?? Jen has seemingly moved on…can’t you?

  • Peace Warrior

    brad pitt’s EGO, not his marriage to Jenifer Anniston, was his own worst enemy and from the sounds of what he said during this interview, his ego is still his worst enemy.

    brad pitt’s ego got the best of him, but hey, he ain’t the first, and won’t be the last guy that doesn’t recognize the best thing that would ever happen to him already did.

    I do not blame him for being bitter nowadays, I mean after all, you decide to divorce Jennifer Anniston for angelina jolie? Wow, just wow, and talk about “trading down.”

    (I’m guilty too…)

  • Linda J Alcorn

    For the first time I agree on a opinion made from Brad Pitt. He is right, he is pathetic. The way he treated Jennifer was disgusting. I wish Jennifer the best.

  • Danese Howard

    Why is this relevant?

  • Tim

    What a PATHETIC attempt by the author of this article, to deliberately DECEIVE readers into WANTING to actually read it, with this BOGUS Title.

  • Cindy

    I call still talking about it “pathetic”.

  • Michelle L

    What a complete a$$hole-enough said!

  • Sus

    there’s such a huge difference – For starters, Jen has class…oh and Jen has class, and did I mention that Jen has class? Last but not least did I mention he has no class. And let’s not forget looks, she is gorgeous and he looks like an ape, a gorilla. He is SO not handsome anymore, both inside and out!

  • Gracie

    Stopped watching Jolie and Pitts movies for the way he dumped Jenifer Aniston.

  • Boone

    It takes two to tango. And it all has to do with what side of the fence you are on. I the words of the song.
    There ain’t no good guy there ain’t no bad guy there’s only you and me and we just disagree” Nobody can judge the two of them because we don’t know the whole story. We only know the BS the media feeds us and we all know how good they are at getting the facts straight.

  • alessa

    What a coincidence! Whorealina talking about her boobs removed and Brat Pee talking “again” about Aniston era,at the time that his new movie is coming.
    For your looks, Pee,we notice that you keep smoking pot,your coloring and Channel joke shows your alcohol intake.
    You are a predictable loser, wealthy but a loser human being.
    Shut up and go to Hell

  • http://webpronews w

    Girls think he’s good lookin’, I guess he’s a fair actor, but personally I believe if anyone is pathetic, it’s Brad. And his aging wife isn’t keeping her looks like Jenn.

  • BJ

    If she was such a wonderful person, why did he not stay in the marriage and make it work? He’s full of it.

  • anonymous

    of course pitt. would say that because. he’s druggy ass piece of shit self.. cant admit to his own faults.. GET A LIFE BRAD!!!.. you just keep talking shit about jenn cuz she’s happy and your ass has to take drugs to deal with ur pathetic wife Jolie and your 6 kids.. hope you don’t have more for there sake..LOL get a life douche bag leave her alone and grow the fuck up

  • TW

    Brad is feeling his age— that’s all. At the time of his marriage to Aniston, his youth dictated his (and her) behavior(s). Years bring wisdom… not beautiful wives, so Jolie has nothing whatsoever to do with his current view of married life. It is the natural progression of age and lessons learned over the years.
