<p><span></span><a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=brad%20pitt&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2"><strong>Brad Pitt</strong></a> made headlines this week when he opened up to <em>Parade</em> magazine about his marriage to <a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=jennifer%20aniston&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2"><strong>Jennifer Aniston</strong></a>. In the interview he said, "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." The actor, who Jen has famously described as "missing a sensitivity chip," added, "I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't."</p>
After being criticized for the comments, the Moneyball star released a statement insisting that the quotes were misinterpreted:
"It grieves me that this was interpreted this way," explains Brad. "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."
But in the same interview the actor praises the woman in his life now, Angelina Jolie. "One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom," he said. "She is such a great mom. Oh, man, I'm so happy to have her."
Brad and Jen married in 2000 and divorced in 2005, the same year he started dating Angelina after starring with her in Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
