Brad Pitt: I'm so happy to have Angelina

At 47, Brad Pitt can say he's a satisfied man. But if you go back about 15 years, the actor says he was far from content.

“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. It started feeling pathetic," Pitt tells Parade magazine in this weekend's issue.

"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," he continues. "I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t."

These days, as a parent of six alongside partner Angelina Jolie, Pitt's found a sense of peace.

"I put much more emphasis on being a satisfied man. I’m satisfied with making true choices and finding the woman I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much. A family is a risky venture, because the greater the love, the greater the loss. … That’s the trade-off. But I’ll take it all," the "Moneyball" star says.

And although his relationship with Jolie has been the subject of gossip and controversy for years, Pitt's confident he made the right choice by building a family with his "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" co-star.

“One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom," he tells Parade. "She is such a great mom. Oh, man, I’m so happy to have her.”

The rumor mill may suggest otherwise, but Pitt shoots down suggestions that the pair are at a breaking point.

"I mean, how many stories have you read that aren’t true, stories about me and Angie being married or fighting or splitting up? And when we don’t split up, there’s a whole new round that we’ve made up and we’re back together again!" he says. "We’ll get married when everyone can. We’re not splitting up. And we don’t have a seventh child yet."

    What a jerk!! It is so funny when he says Jolie is a great mother!! She called her own girl a blob! dresses her like a boy!! I am sure she will sleep with her daugther's boyfriend like she did with her mother's!! what a sick and ugly woman! This jolie is so cheap, with all the tatoos,so class!!!
    I think Pitt is a stupid man with no personality! Aniston will always be loved , and everybody remembers he cheated on his wife!! This man is 47 and he speaks like he is 15!! that 's hilarious!
    He chose to get a junkie and psychotic woman as a mother!! what a a great choice!

    Don't get me wrong...Jennifer Anniston is a very attractive woman but she does seem like she could be lil boring. Besides running off with Angelina, perhaps Jennifer was more interested in her movie career rather than being a mom which I am sure Brad wanted to have with her with but she chose other wise.

    These comments really say more about the posters and their susceptibility to propaganda than about these 3 movie stars. All 3 are part of an industry based on propaganda designed to get publicity for people who are paid to pretend to be someone they are not. It may be that pretending becomes a habit or it may be they are always pretending. Some may genuinely evolve, but which outsider can really say for sure, no matter how many CAPS they use? Pitt admits he was stoned for at least 15 years - throughout the 1990s and until he announced he stopped smoking pot for the sake of his children . During this 15 year period he says he was boring and admits that rather than using his considerable resources to cope with his fame and success, he sat around stoned and feeling sorry for himself. He is no different from many other people who disapppear into acohol and drugs because they are stuck. This should occasion our sympathy, not our hatred. He is right that being boring was his problem and no one else's fault. Many people go through a similar midlife crisis around 40 and trade in their partners. Is this cause and effect? Do they change first or do they line up the next person and expect this new person to change things for them, rather than face what is wrong and change who they are? Many people make a mistake about who they marry or change what they want. Many jmay ust trade partners when they get bored. Few exit from their marriages with dignity and grace. At least no children were harmed when Pitt opted out of his marriage. Many people line up the next partner before they leave their current one. For most the fallout from doing this is more private. Although the people in their immediate lives may take sides, like the posters here, none know what the inside of a marriage really looks like or how things will end up when it ends. As for what really occurred, no one else has enough of an inside view to say for sure. Most people are not able to speak honestly about their own failings and lack of coping skills.. Pitt says he is satisfied now so who is qualified to say he is not? He also said his prior partners Gweneth Paltrow and Jennifer Anniston were each the love of his life and that now it is Angelina Jolie. All may be true statemens at the itme they were made. Who can judge any of these 3 strangers or their actions from our outside position with only propaganda to go by? Truth is the number one casualty of propaganda and what propaganda is designed to manipulate. These postings are a real insight into fanaticism. I hope they do not represent a true cross section of the American people because the posters here are so vicious and judgmental. Rabid fans of each of these 3 people seem compelled to take sides and are so certain that each is what they need for them to be. That is a great jumoing off place for self examination.

    Brad did nothing wrong. The interview was about him and his life and he was honest to say he went through a rough time and it was awful for him. So what if he was married to someone at the time – it is HIS LIFE. He has every right to say it is good or bad. And his marriage to Jennifer had nothing to do with HIS life – it was not a happy time for him and he changed it. The question you all shoudl be asking is why didn't Jennifer help him!? Maybe she was so self-involved with her own life/work that she didn't care enough to help her husband. Shame on her!

    Brad Pitt comes off as such a self centered jerk in this article. Jen seems so much more down to earth and doesn't need to broadcast how 'evolved' she is or how she is single handedly saving the planet. A person with class would not need to tout himself or his girlfriend that way. Hopefully if Jen had any lingering feelings for him, reading this article will have put them to rest. Jen, you are much better off.

    Geez, chill people! He issued his apology to Jen, why I don't know, because he didn't say anything bad. He was being honest with the fact that he was not happy at the time, he never directly blamed her for that, he just hadn't found his true happiness yet! And for all of you that think of him as some kind of monster, look back on your life and think of a time when you weren't at your happens to everyone and unfortunately some people have to be hurt on our personal road. Just because he is famous doesn't mean he isn't a human being with normal human tendancies and emotions.

    Wow there are some pathetic people on here. The people who hate Brad Pitt, or Angelina Jolie, or Jennifer Aniston, and why? Because they didn't have perfect love lives? Are you really so shallow minded as to not see the complexity of the issue? I think it seems fairly obvious that Brad Pitt did not intend to hurt Jennifer Aniston, yet of course, he did. That is how it works when you have a failed relationship. It also seems pretty clear to me that Jennifer Aniston understands that. Of course it was harder for her than it was for him. He met someone he fell in love with before they even separated, whereas she had to go through a bit of public humiliation and several short-lived relationships. I don't understand what the millions of "Team Jen" people out there are griping about. Was he supposed to stay in an unhappy relationship and turn his back on his chance for happiness just to wait it out until she inevitably ended it for the same reasons? From everything I have ever heard him say about Jennifer Aniston since they split, he still cares about her and he wishes her all the best. He doesn't say mean things about her – he is simply being honest when he says he was unhappy with her. How is that mean or hurtful? Its pretty clear it wasn't a happy relationship based on the fact that they split, so yeah I don't know. I just don't get it. All three of them seem like decent people, albeit with understandly large egos. At least Brad Pitt had the conscience to call his marriage quits instead of having some drawn out affair. That is more than you can say for a lot of people, famous or not. I just think that the people who have sworn off of Brad Pitt's movies or Angelina Jolie's movies as a result of their personal lives need to grow up and get a life.

      No, Sarah, he didn't end his marriage like you are trying to make it out to be! He cheated on his wife with a woman who had already broken up Billy Bob Thorton's home. It must be a sport for this woman to hunt someone else's husband or fiance. What he said in this article was extremely mean, seeing how he was the one who cheated on her while she believed she was in a secure and loving MARRIAGE. I boycott anything Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, because I don't like them personally and wouldn't give them a dime of my money. Also as actors they only can play a role two ways and one of those ways usually includes what can only be interpreted as a very bad british accent. I don't need to grow up, because I don't want to pay to watch them. As a consumer I have that right, as does anyone else who wants to. Although I am sure their movie ratings are not just down, because of their adulterous ways! Julia Roberts has had a few scandals in her time, but she is an amazing beautiful actress and because she is such a good actress I could never boycott her.

    Good for you Mr. Pitt. Jenn hasn't learned a thing about being happy (her recent relationship decisions indicate she is completely lost) and number 1 is being honest with yourself. So whether you are a Jenn supporter or not, you have to admit that Brad is happier now than he was and that's all that matters. Stating that he was unhappy is well.....the truth, not some sort of dig. Jenn and her followers need to get over it. Again, good for you Brad!

So basically, he's acknowledging he was pathetic BEFORE he married Jen. He clearly went BACK to being pathetic when he hooked up with weirdo Angelina.....they are sooo strange.

    Good for you Brad and Angie, there will ALWAYS be people out there obsessed with "are they or are they not", so to speak on the marriage issue. I am one of the few that do not get obsessed wth movie stars and their private lives, i read this in the morning and finally said great i have my chance to put in my own words how i feel about brad and angie and all the dirt written about these two, and the lies and bullcrap. both have finally established themselves and their relationship, in other words they have come full circle and had this chance to tell the truth, the truth they have been trying to tell from the time they both realized when family became a very important part of their lives, when angie adopted her children, of course here we go again with the rag tag papers, if you are good enough to read between the lines you would have realized that brad really wanted children and jennifer was not ready at that time in her life, brad in my opinion was born to be a dad, we all go through our own personal journeys, brad and angie met i believe at the right time, as their relationship progressed and she became pregnant with brads children, to me that sealed the truth, why people dont leave them alone i cannot answer that, it seems an obsession with writers, fans, and fanitics. thank you brad for setting the record straight, again, hopefully these rag tag magazines will back off and find something else to write about, the problem to me seems once a wanna be writer puts something in print, you cannot take it back, i feel bad for those two, only because it is like, here we go again, well KUDOS to both of you, i got it along time ago, the most important things you wanted in life was love and family, both of you found that in each other, so GOD SPEED TO BOTH OF YOU AND YOUR BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN, your children are Blessed in my opinion, not because you two are famous, they are Blessed because your love for them is true and honest, what more can you ask for, for the rag tag papers and inane comments, continue to let them roll off your back like water on a ducks back, so to speak.

      My sentiments exactly... Brad & Angie got together after Brad & Jen started having issues about her not wanting children yet. Me & my ex- had similar issues and he ended up cheating like Brad did...
      But it was the best thing for both of us, I am glad it happened I have meet the Man of my dreams and have high hope of having his children. I never felt this way with my ex. And my ex has 2 boys now & is happy in his relationship.

    You're smart and I'm sure you're careful enough speaking publically to know that your recent remarks would be hurtful to your former wife, Jennifer. That wasn't too nice of you. I respect most of all people who are divorced and stay friends with their former spouses. If this isn't possible, I respect people who don't say anything bad or hurtful publically about their former spouses. That's just the grown up way to do things. You have nothing to gain by putting anyone else down. It only takes a little shine off what we all hope you are. cjs

    This is the first time I have ever heard Brad Pitt comment on his first marriage. He has kept his mouth shut while his ex-wife allowed her sycophants to trash him and Angelina for years. Perhaps after so much time of maintaining a diplomatic silence, he felt it was OK to say he really was not happy during his first marriage and that he loves his current partner. It seems to me he chose his words carefully to talk about his feelings only and not directly criticize his ex. There is no surprise here-only a man who has moved on with his life and found happiness.

    If he is truly happy and content, what is with the shot about his life with Aniston?
    Any negative thoughts about that relationship really could have been left unsaid....he didn't need to bring up Aniston to make a point about how "happy" he is now. Surely by now he's dealt with the press and public long enough to pick his words more carefully-or maybe he chose purposefully not to (?) Seems like there is an undercurrent there on his part -something more behind the "scenes". Brad, you keep saying you've moved on and are happy now….if that's the case, why do you contradict yourself by bringing up the past?

    I don't believe everything Brad is saying is the truth. If he REALLY wanted to marry Angelina he could; waiting for gays to be allowed to marry is an excuse not to marry..There maybe a trust issue here.He stays with Angelina on the count of the children o/w he would have been gone guaranteed!Angelina wears the pants in the family and probably controls some of what Brad is allowed to say in interviews. Brad looked better when he was with Jennifer.Nobody knows exactly what went on with their marriage except for Jen and Brad(she was the one who divorced him not him divorcing her-lets not forget! Deep down he may not be able to trust Angie either.Well, if he cheated on Jen he has/will cheat on Angie!

    Jen is probably very happy to be free of a narcissistic spouse, although it was initially very upsetting. I reread the paragraph to count how many times Brad used the word "I". "I" wanted this, "I" found my way, "I" married the right woman.

    I have respect for his philanthropy and work with the poor in New Orleans and elsewhere. But when it comes to his personal life, he should shut his PIEHOLE!

    I use to like Brad Pitt. I thought he was attractive in Legends of the Fall and did a decent job of acting. But it was obvious to everyone he wasn't the "sharpest knife in the drawer" considering his choice in women (b4) Jennifer A. He has NEVER really dated a very attractive girl. All his women were kinda "loose" and then he up and marries Jennifer A. It always seem weird.
    Anyway, BP is not a leader, he's a follower. Jennifer A was looking for a man to lead, and she didn't find that in BP. He's weak. Angie is the dominant one in the relationship and makes all the decisions. (it's obvious). So, yeah, I can believe he's happy now because he doesn't have to be a "man" per say!
    Some women want to take the lead, while others want to be led. (JA is the latter! )

    Jen is well rid of this selfish, self-centered individual. Regardless of what was going on, Jen didn't deserve the humiliation that Brad brought on via his affair with Angelina.

I don't know of one person who got a "happy ending" from an affair and I don't think Brad and Angelina will be any exception.

    She is not a natural beauty and compares herself to Elizabeth Taylor...Taylor never had plastic surgery and Jolie had to repair her nose.

    Their movies are bombing and now Jolie fancies her self a writer, what a coincidence that JA is in love with a real author...Jolie/Pitt are desdperate for attention.

    Out of the billions of guys on this planet, odds say there’s one who isn’t in love with Jennifer Anniston. Naturally, it’s going to be her ex. I’m thinking she’s WAY better off without him since his sole interest was a selfish one – to satisfy himself. Ego and a joint – such a winning combo in a man. Sounds like he figured out what marriage is about a little too late.

    You all jump on Brad for this ONE interview he actually did on Jen. But you all forget the plenty interviews she did on Brad... especially around the time when she was promoting her box office bomb of movies. If this "America" really did care about "Poor Jen" then they wouldve showed it where it matters most: The box office. At the end of the day he is just being honest and now he seems to have found the right one and living his life gracefully. While you still have Jen dwelling whenever she has a new movie coming out or dating any actor she co-signs with for a movie. Plus anyway, what's not to say Jen didnt play a part too, I mean there is two sides to every coin and obviously something wasnt there, meaning more then likely Jen was THAT boring and THAT uninterested for Brad's liking.

    I think what gets everyone all riled up is the fact that HE is the one that cheated, not Jennifer. So to mosts way of thinking (myself included), you don't get to run around and complain about the marriage. He already fell in love with someone else when he was married and that is life-shattering enough, but then it's public, too. I will always be Team Jennifer for that. Their marriage may not have been ones is, but if you are a decent human being, you own up to those feelings and you tell your spouse about your dissatisfaction before you publicly fall in love with someone else. That takes courage to do, but a real man (or woman) could do it. And that is why I don't watch any of his films. I have no respect for him as a person.

      He's not saying anything bad about Jen; he's saying their marriage was a mistake and he's happy with AJ. Jen didn't want the same things in life, and she has to be #1 all the time. IMHO that's the reason they weren't happy. I remember them being separated at the time AJ and BP worked on the film. People were hoping they would get back together, but they didn't so let it go. BP is not saying anything in this article that is worse than all the stuff Jen has said over and over and over to make everyone think she was all heartbroken. If she didn't want the things Brad did, then what can be said? What have you got together if she acted as if she wanted kids before they got married, but didn't once they were married? He always wanted kids. The whole time he was with Jen, he talked about having kids and lots of them. Sheesh, am I the only one who remembers what was going on back then, or do you want to revise history?

And I'm an old broad saying this so give it a rest. He was honest – as for Jennifer Aniston – the most over rated actress out there.

    I find it odd that he chooses THIS particular point in time to ill speak the time (4 1/2 years) that he spent with his ex-wife? Is it because she appears to be finally happy and has truly moved on from Brad? I don't remember her ever saying that she regretted the time she spent with Pitt. How distasteful of Brad Pitt. Really, no matter what question you are asked, there is a way that you can answer it without being cruel. Does he not realize that what HE said about his life makes HIM look like a giant hypocrite? People are not stupid, Brad. Maybe Angelina is getting antsy and this is his way of reaffirming to her that he loves her above all. But bashing another person is never the way to do this. Karma is...well we all know what it is. Shame on Brad Pitt.

    The reason Mr. Pitt's comments seem so insensitive is that he volunteered this information without being directly asked about his former marriage. When Ms. Aniston has made comments about her former husband, she has been asked a direct question about the marriage and she has answered the questions directly. There was no reason that he needed to reveal this information to the interviewer. Perhaps he has a new movie coming out and wants the publicity?

    I think deep down Brad has always liked to slum but he felt pressured to conform and be a "golden boy" to help and further his career and with that comes the trophy wife. I don't honestly think he was ever in love with Jennifer and eventually pretending to be someone he wasn't came to a head when he met Angelina because let's all face it.. the girl is whitetrash with a capital W. He did what was "expected" of him because as he freely admits he was hiding out... No one can say that he has changed a lot, I think gotten more true to himself since he has been with her. He has aged drastically since he has been with her while on the other side of the coin I think Angelina finally met a men who accepted her for what and who she is and actually brough out the best qualities she posseded but never surfaced because of the type of men she chose to get involved with. Personally I wish he would have just been honest with Jennifer, she did deserve that much, and told her that he didn't love her, the marriage wasn't working and then began his relationship with Angelina. Jennifer is in a different class than Angelina but the reality is neither is perfect and both have different qualities that attractive different types of men. It takes two to make a marriage work and two to make it fail... their marriage I think never had a solid foundation because I don't think Brad's heart was ever truly in it. Sad all the way around but he's found happiness.. hopefully for a lifetime and maybe one day Jennifer wil find her's happiness too..

    Jeeze- the reason he is even bringing this up is because he's doing an INTERVIEW!! Get over yourselves, especially the nit-wit females calling him a cheater. When it first came out that he was with JA, I thought- damn, he could do so much better. Angelina is better looking, a better actress, more worldly and all around better match for Brad. The fact that he changed Angelina's mind about having biological children goes to show they are not only a physical match, but psychological, which goes a lot further than a shallow physical relationship. JA needs to quit beating the dead horse, she has no talent, every part she ever gets is the same wax-faced part that could be played so much better by someone else. Brad and Angelina were meant for each other, and I'm glad he's got her, too.

    I normally don't post on stories like these. However, as a therapist I can't help but notice that almost every article being written about Brad or Angelina has one or both of them reiterating how happy they are. A professional question I would have for both of them if they were my client, would be..."who are you trying to convince? THe public or yourself? In my experience, if you are truelly happy and content, there is no reason to keep putting the feelings out there. They've been together several years, so even if there are stories suggesting otherwise, there is no point in saying it over and over again. I also notice that they tend to alwyas include his ex in the discussion...poor taste certainly, but I would be more concerned about why either of them are thinking of someone who is not in their relationship. Who cares what was then? This is now...I always advise my couples to focus on their own relationship, past ones only apply as to how they may influence what is happening now. Very seldom does the wife or husband persist in saying how unhappy they were with an ex after this many years. To me it indicates a certain amount of thought about that said marriage. Which would be a red flag to me that they were thinking of their ex alot. Hmm..just my observation. I truely hope they have found a sense of contentment and happiness, since it is so hard for an acting couple to do this. But if their publisist suggests another interview, I would keep their private life just that. You know what they say..."He who protests too much...."

    It's funny that Brad Pitt always tried to be very gracious in interviews regarding Jennifer Aniston until she started dating Justin Theroux. Jennifer's relationship with Justin is serious (they are supposedly talking marriage), and I think Brad's finally starting to realize that Jennifer has moved on. Honestly, Jennifer probably moved on years ago, but now that the public perceives her as moving on, it has to really has to be a blow to his ego. He really should have watched his comments in the Parade interview. A lot of people say that Jennifer has said worse things, but she was the one that was cheated on, and the things really weren't mean. I think Brad Pitt is just being mean right now because there is a part of him that can't believe his ex actually is moving on.

Seems all she did for awhile was talk about her poor little self. Turn-about sucks, eh? No marriage is perfect, and there is usually blame on both parts. Obviously she wasn't meeting his needs, and he seems to have found someone who does. Ditto for Aniston (finally).

    He has said all sorts of the "She's the one for me, I love her with all my heart" etc etc with each and everyone of his girlfriends when he was with them. He felt life was pathetic etc. Did he even talk to Jen about it, tell her how he felt? I don't think so. He became so infatuated with Miss Thing. People do change, but the only changes Brad makes are the ones where he becomes the exact copy of the person he is with at the time. How pathetic is that? Sure couples do make small changes and pick up some little things of their partners, but he does a 360 with each and everyone he was with from Robin Givens to Gwyneth to Jen to the nasty one. Personally it sounds like to me he is kissing up to AJ. She wears the pants. I'm glad Jennifer DIVORCED him, he's a louse. Everyone wants to blame Angelina or Jen, but never Brad. UGH

    I respect Brad for negating the rumors of a 7th child, relationship troubles, and official marriage hyped in magazines to sell rag dirt and sensationalism. Brad stated in this Parade interview that he and Angie are not officially married and will do so when everyone (i.e. gay people) is allowed this privilege. At the time he was married to Jennifer Aniston, they were in their thirties. It was widely reported that Brad wanted children and Jennifer wanted continued acting jobs. Women are primarily picked for leading roles while their of prime beauty age. Men are allowed to age gracefully on the screen with less discrimination and more opportunities as they grow older. How many leading females can let their hair turn gray as George Clooney, or pudge out like William Shatner & John Travolta and still receive mega television roles and film offers? Life doesn't come in nice, neat packages. Even a celebrity divorce in California takes a minimum of six months to finalize. Jennifer seems to have found a steady boyfriend with reports of home purchase, marriage, and future children. God has a sense of humor and karma must be at play....Jennifer is now accused of being the home wrecker, getting involved with a man already in a 14 year relationship. Let people live their own lives and God/Goddess will take care of any judgments or punishments if needed.

      Pitt is an outspoken liberal and cheated on his wife to be with Jolie. That right there shows that the far left has NO respect for marriage or the family. Pitt is another far left hater and bigot. Nothing mroe.

They spend spend a couple trillion on a war based on lies, then blame the left for excessive spending. Next thing you know, they'll be accusing us of wearing evangelical hair spray coated hair styles.

    Brad, you take yourself entirely too seriously. You are an inconsequential human being who no one cares about. Jennifer Anniston is a beautiful, classy woman. You never deserved her and you are certainly not a gentleman. You have grown fat, complacent and every time you open your mouth you sound more ignorant. How can both you and Jolie feel so smug about a relationship that was begun while you were still married? Go away, you are yesterday's news! Eventually Angelina will get tired of you and move on.

    I don't like how they went about it. I think if he wanted to end the marriage for AJ, he should have done it with some class. I felt for Jen because I'm sure she must have felt real heartbreaking hurt, betrayed, along with other emotions. I heard a few weeks back that Brad said he would do anything to keep Angie because she is great in bed. That she likes it rouge, etc. Hey... there is nothing wrong with being a ***** in bed and making it wild and fun. Why be stale and boring. I just feel bad for Jen that she constantly have to be reminded of this.

    Angie always said she would NEVER have a biological child as long as there were orphans in the world. Brad fell "in love" on set with Maddox not Ang. Once BP realized his mistake, Ang gets pregnant with Shiloh. She had to do something to keep him from running back to JA. He played that roll for awhile and when he was ready to once again run for the hills, Ang gets pregnant with the twins. He's miserable, trapped and lost his looks to boot. Damn you Karma.

    I think it's normal to reflect back on a time in your life and know that you have changed and grown from the person that you were. People change, grow and mature so much from 32 to 47 and it would seem, like anyone, that he has taken some time for introspection. Perhaps the relationship that he was looking for, or thought he had with Jennifer, is obviously not the type of relationship that would bring him fulfillment at this point in his life. It's called growth and it would be a sad and stagnant life without it. I just hope that he realizes that his own expectations are just that. I am certain that Jennifer has grown, too. A persons measure of happiness is reliant only on themselves.

I really wish they'd take their heap of kids and disappear into some 3rd world country where no amount of paparazzi can track them down, never to be seen or heard from again. Sure, she wasn't his soul mate but he was hers and he ruined her spirit. She hasn't been the same since. She used to be so happy go lucky, so genuinely content and every picture and interview of her since the split just makes my heart break for her again and again. She smiles, laughs, etc but the happiness never reaches her eyes. She always seems so sad. I feel terrible for her. I get that he wasn't happy and he needed out but the way in which it all took place was just so disgusting. He's a dirtbag. Angelina is a homewrecker. The two of them deserve each other.

    I couldn't care less if he's so happy he found Angelina or whatever, I'd rather see him miserable. All I hope is that Jen finds her happy because she deserves it.

      Jennifer has been talking about her marriage constantly for years – she brings up Brad or references to him in almost every interview and thing she does. She also has insulted Angelina more than once. The public has become sick of it. Jennifer's friends also have insulted Angelina and their children. Brad has always been a gentleman about his marriage and about Jennifer but I think at some point you say Enough! Nothing wrong with setting the record staright when your former spouse can't stop talking on the record. And still Brad does not insult Jennifer – he simply lays it on the line that it was not a good marriage and that he was pretending it was something it wasn't. Actually that seemed clear to observers long before Brad seems to have caught on.

    I think it's very cowardly to blame someone else on your unhappiness. If he was unhappy I'm sure Jennifer was just as unhappy only she had the class not to broadcast it all over the world and apparently she is still the one with the class because she doesn't go around blaming him for her unhappiness. I wish her all the happiness in the world and hopes she can find her own soulmate. Until then she can keep being successful and date whomever she wants to. If the roles were reversed and she had cheated with and then married a co star Brad would be doing his thing now so yay for him and Angelina but if he were really happy he wouldnt need to mention Jennifer at all.

      Are you married? He may have loved the ex and tried to make it work, but when it's not right, it's not fixable. If it's right, he wouldn't be attracted to someone else, and apparently he really wanted kids, which the ex apparently does not.

      Where did you get the sense that he was casting blame? He said the marriage wasn't making him happy. He never said anything like "Jennifer made me unhappy" or "It was her fault we broke up." You're ascribing feelings to him that he did not express. I think that's called projecting.

How unnecessary and just plain mean. I don't care how many refugees she helps or UN appointments she gets. Ang can't change the past and she'll always be dirty.

I don't think she has been destroyed. I think it catapulted her career. I really don't think he bad-mouthed her. If any of you bothered to read the whole article (shudder at the thought), he said, it wasn't anything to do with her, and he completely blamed himself. What is so terrible about a guy saying he was in a bad place, but now found happiness and love. And for the person who said AJ is just an average mother PUULLLEASE. The woman is not average. She has a career and liek 18 kids and still manages to be a Goodwill Ambassador to help children all over the world. I'm guessing most average mothers don't do that. Ok, you LOVE JA, we get it, but AJ does a lot of good domestically and abroad. Let's get real about that.

He latched on to a complex woman to make his life interesting for him since he didn't know how to do it himself. It was never Jennifer's job to do that for him. We are all responsible for our own happiness. It would seem to me he still hasn't answered the deeper question for himself he's just temporarily stimulated. Wait til the kids leave the house ...

      Ha! Paying for it how? Angelina Jolie's estimated net worth is $120M, Brad Pitt's is $150M. Why are so many people obsessed with living in fantasy worlds?

      I think Brad and Angelina have shown they are committed to each other, but I suppose you are the kind of person who needs a legal and binding agreement so whatever kind of man you could convince to stay with you longer than overnight would find it a little difficult to leave if he knew most of his assets will be going to you if he does.
      And guy s like the crazies because they are infinitely more fun to be around than Betty Homemaker, Prudish Patty and Lame-O Lauren.

      Brad, you shouldn't have said this! This will throw your career in a tailspin like nothing! America wants to see Jennifer happy! We are not like you, living a life within reach of anything you want. Once America finds out this is how a celebrity treats an ex-love, someone we watched on tv, and in the newspapers, we won't watch you anymore! Do everything you can to apologize to Jen. America also wants to see Brad happy as well!

      You people complaining that he was honest about his marriage to Jen are pathetic. He has the courage to face himself and his life and be honest about it, and that's a problem for you? I don't think it was a put-down, he was basically saying that it wasn't what he really wanted. Further, he waited until she is happy with someone to make the statement. Personally, I think he's a great actor and, as hollywood people go, a great person. I also love the comment that they'll get married "when everyone can." Especially as Americans, it is disturbing that us straight people can get married (I am), but gay people cannot, and there are many in our country who want Big Government to continue to limit the rights of individuals.

      What a classless, horrible, beyond mean hearted thing for a man to say about his past wife/life. You don't need to hurt one in an attempt to show another you love them.

      JA does not go on and on about Brad. I have no idea why people say that about her. She's replied to a few questions in a couple of articles, and that's it. Brad Pitt is a crass, nasty person for this dig at JA all these years later. Why now? What was the interviewer trying to do, start up this stupid pretend war again among these 3 people all over again. Very unnecessary stab at Aniston. I'm really surprised he said it.

      This is the thing, he wouldn't be the man he is now without having been married to Jen. All of our experience molds us. The fact that he doesn't acknowledge that, but critiques it is unfair and really arrogant. I'm sure she healed him in some way making him fit for the next phase of his life. He's ungrateful and stupid.

      I think their marriage was pathetic – from Jennifer Anniston's is pathetic when you wake up and realize that you have wasted years of your life on someone so mature that they feel that making a mockery out of their wedding vows by cheating and then blaming their former spouse for THEIR shortcomings is satisfaction. I suppose it is – IF you are that arrogant,selfish and self centered. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie just blow my mind – they are so arrogant and act like they are royalty – proclaim to the world that "they will get married when everyone who wants to get married can do so" does ANYONE other than their children CARE if they get married. They don't celebrate Thanksgiving because this country is just so you see either of them RETURNING THE MONEY THEY HAVE MADE IN THIS COUNTRY? No, you don't...they are arrogant, pompous and self righeous – but worst of all – they are hypocritical...if you have issues with the U.S. give the money you have made in this country back to it's citizens and go live elsewhere – no one really cares what they do or do not do, the only reason I read this story and commented was because of his remarks about Jennifer Anniston..she has been more than kind in the press, one would think he could've maintained a similar amount of respect, guess not – but I've waited a very long time to see how long it would take him to try and justify his actions by blaming Jennifer.

      The comments below just show how childish and immature people really are. It shows that people don't grow up they just get older. Reading the comments on CNN always slaps me into reality,that birth control should be used more often.

      To TheFirstRuleofFightClub, even if it's true that he was misserable back then and if he is now very happy, why hurt people? If you are really happy you don't even remember the bad things, you move on and enjoy what you have. Bravo for Brad, the only honest man in earth!! Good karma to Brad and Angelina!!!

      Won't get married tell everyone else can, sounds like an excuse, just say you don't want to. People are just saying marriage is between a man a woman (they can make babies together). If you want the same rights it called make a will.

      Sher–your ignorance is astounding. It's called making a will? Are you serious? There are literally over a thousand rights bestowed on married individuals, most of which cannot be contract for, including employee insurance, taxes, and how debt is treated under the law. And, your only reason, they can't have childrem? I hope you are barren. Because or over the age of 45. Because then we should make it a law that you cannot marry. Right? Your logic is so childish.

      It's bad enough that you cheated on Jennifer, but now to talk bad about her to the world is unforgivable. Even when you were disrespecting her by cheating on her with Angie, she never publicly dogged you to the media. But now for you to say such hurting words about her shows you have no class or integrity, Brad! Jennifer has more class in her finger than you and Jolie could ever have in your whole bodies. Karma, Brad and Jolie!, it's only a matter of time before both of you get what you deserve.
