Brad Pitt defends interview about marriage to Jennifer Aniston



tbd-bradpittparade091911.jpgBrad Pitt was blaming the media once again for misinterpreting the context of a quote in a Parade magazine interview slated to run Sunday, saying he had no ill feelings toward his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston. Oh my god, can we please just let this go?

After Pitt told Parade he felt like a "satisfied man" with Angelina Jolie and their six kids (and their chateau in France, and glamorous movie star lifestyles, and piles of money), he noted his five-year marriage wasn't as spectacular.

"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 said. "I think that my marriage (to Aniston) had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't." Yeah, it's fairly obvious how that could be misconstrued. Pitt quickly issued a statement Friday as the interview was posted on the mag's website, saying he wasn't taking a shot.

"It grieves me that this was interpreted this way. Jen is an incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious woman who remains my friend," Pitt said in a statement. "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."

Breaking up his marriage? Well, Angie was responsible for that, despite what any of them say.
