Pitt Slams Aniston Marriage, Calls It "Pathetic"


Share this Post

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.
