OK Mag: Brad Pitt talked smack about Jennifer Aniston because he’s jealous


Where to start? There’s lots of Brad Pitt news today, and I suspect that Brad and the Unholy, Uncool Bermuda Triangle of Dullness and Doom will take several more tabloid covers today, so just prepare yourselves. First, while Brad was flying solo at his Moneyball premiere in Oakland two nights ago, he once again “clarified” his Parade Magazine remarks, saying: “That was never my intention for it to be spun that way. People read things into it that just weren’t there.”

Next up: Brad and Jennifer Aniston take the cover of this week’s OK! Magazine, because IT’S STILL NOT OVER.


Brad Pitt doesn’t give many interviews — and now maybe we know why. After discussing his personal life with Parade magazine, the Moneyball star managed the rare feat of enraging and humiliating both his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, and his current partner, Angelina Jolie.

“Brad is in deep trouble with both Jen and Angelina” an insider tells OK! in this week’s issue, on sale everywhere Thursday!

The interview started with a little healthy self-deprecation. Reflecting on who he was 10 or 12 years ago, Brad described himself as a “pathetic” slacker, “sitting on a couch, holding a joint…. I wasn’t living an interesting life.”

So far, so good. Until Brad added, “I think that my marriage [to Jennifer] had something to do with it — trying to pretend the marriage was something it wasn’t.”

Remember when Jen said Brad was missing “a sensitivity chip”? Apparently, he still hasn’t grown one. Here, Jen has finally put their painful divorce behind her and is talking marriage and babies with new love Justin Theroux — and Brad brands her a mindnumbing bore and implies that his whole life with her was a lie.

Was it really mere thoughtlessness? Some insiders believe otherwise — that it’s killing Brad to see Jen and Justin mooning like giddy teens.

“Brad’s got a real competitive, vicious streak, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s jealous,” a Jen pal tells OK!. “Justin is everything Brad couldn’t be. He adores Jen; Jen is deeply in love with Justin. And she’d fallen in and out of love with Brad during their marriage. Truth be told, they were both bored. Jen saw Brad as a dull stoner. But Justin is a poet and an author and well-educated and amazing.”

At first, the public put-down wounded Jen, adds another source: “She was angry and confused. But then it became obvious to her — and everyone else in their world — that he’s just envious of how happy she is with her new man.”

[From OK! Magazine]

Is that seriously the Aniston-approved talking point? That Brad just said that he was bored and unsatisfied in their marriage because he’s so JEALOUS of her new relationship? Really? Did Jennifer and her “friends” not read the parts about Angelina and their six kids? Well, if thinking that makes Jennifer Aniston happy, God bless.


Last story: Brad is making an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show tomorrow – it’s a pretaped piece, and we’ve already got some details. He compares life with six kids to the movie Cuckoo’s Nest (is he referencing One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest?): “That’s morning time in our house. …Cheswick screaming for a cigarette, someone’s doing ballet over there and on it goes.” Here’s more:

Brad on his “favorite” child:
Ellen: Portia and I have been together for six years and you and Angie have been together about the same amount of time. I just think wow, Maddox and Pax and Zahra and Buff and Hensman and…Tito. There is so many of them. I don’t know how you balance? There’s got to be one really, really well behaved one. Who’s your favorite?

Brad: (laughing)…How do I get out of this one?

Brad on finding “Mommy, Daddy” time:
Ellen: So you’re traveling a lot. You have the kids. You have a career and Angie has a career. How do you have time to keep..to have the romance. Have alone time.
Do you just sometimes say, we will be back in a month? Just leave them at home?

Brad: We find our time. We carve out Mommy, Daddy time… It’s called a hotel.

Ellen: That’s what I’m getting at.

Brad: You got to get out of this house. You got to leave.

Brad on marriage:
Ellen: When people ask you and Angie if you’re getting married you’ve said that, well I’ll let you say it.

Brad: I’ve said that we would not be getting married until everyone in this county had the right to get married…

Ellen: I love that.

Brad: …We live in this great country that is about freedom. It is defined by our freedom and equality and yet we allow this discrimination to go on everyday and that’s not what we’re about. That’s not what makes us great. Until that is reversed. I just don’t get it. “It’a make’a no sense to me” (in a italian accent)

Ellen: Thank you. So that means if like, next week if it’s legal for everyone to get married that you would then be getting married the very next day. It seems.

Brad: It seems.

Ellen: Doesn’t that seem like the right thing?

Brad: I do. The kids are putting on the heat. They really are. They are putting on the heat.

Ellen: You’ll still hold out?

Brad: How do you I get it out this one? Somebody help me. I don’t know what the future holds…

[Transcript courtesy of Ellen’s Show]

Apparently, Ellen also gave Brad baseball jerseys for the whole family, which say “Jolie-Pitt”. That’s kind of cute. As for what he says about marriage… I consistently get the feeling that Brad is really the one holding back on the idea of getting married. I think Angelina really wants to go for it, and now it seems like the kids want it too (probably being egged on by mom). So is Brad really going to hold out until the gays in Texas can get married?

Oh, I have a conspiracy theory too – notice how little effort it took for Brad to change the subject away from those reports he was boning his assistant? Maybe Brad prefers speculation about the Bermuda Triangle and not about an attractive side-piece?

    This jen pal is obviously Huvane! What a joke.

  2. dana says:

    the theme of ‘getting out” concerns me

  3. Dibba says:

    I think BP made those comments to make AJ happy. I think he’s attracted to insecure women. I also think she rules the roost and he wouldn’t do or say anything that she didn’t approve of. I don’t think he’s jealous of JA. I think he was speaking honestly and threw in the stuff about his marriage (which was stupid) to make AJ happy or feel better.

  4. Boo says:

    Not hard to imagine he’s jealous a bit. Jen seems to have a fun, free life, while he lives with a very intense, undoubtedly difficult woman, and while yes, they share 6 little kids, most parents recognize that more children does not make for an easier or more satisfying life. Children are a blessing, but most of the time, life with children is a lot of work and requires a lot of patience. It’s not all sidewalk chalk and lollipops.

  5. Dibba says:

    On a sidenote, I don’t believe the whole “we won’t get married until everyone can” bull. Let’s be honest, they don’t want to get married, they’ve both tried it and it hasn’t worked out too well so its not like they deeply believe in the institution of marriage or anything. Also, when was the last time they did anything for gay rights? Just say you don’t want to get married. Don’t turn everything into a soapbox.

  6. serena says:

    Oh please, who the f*** cares about Jennifer Aniston?
    She’s so happy, so in love..yeah yeah so why does she go all her way out to let her pr talk that way?

    Talking back in a classy way is not saying “Brad was dull too!” (considering he never say that).. who are you a 6years old? And then making comparison..is just so pathetic.
    She obliviously is far away from her ‘happy and I-don’t-care-anymore image”.

    He’s jealous..of what? Bitch, please.

  7. Anna says:

    JA’s publicist is unbelievable. This is as low as Kate Bosworth.

  8. olivia says:

    Does anyone know if Pitt or Jolie are actually actively involved with any organizations that promote same sex marriage or gay civil rights? It isn’t like the politicians care whether ho and goat ever get married, so how is that suppose to help the gays?

  9. DenG says:

    Lord, this is getting old. The “Sources” are earning their money. Theroux’s ex-girlfriend sure is quiet and no one is saying too much about his hypocritical comments that a celebrity like Tom Hanks cannot be taken seriously as a character in a film. So why is he with Aniston?

  10. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Ugh, I don’t believe Jen thinks that or had anyone say that. I honestly don’t.

    It was kinda weird seeing him on Ellen because Jen and Ellen are such good friends but seems like a nice interview.

    The marriage thing to me is very simple. Brad was at first afraid to get married. Angie too. He just left his first marriage and that affected him. However now that he knows he can have a family with Angie and loving relationship he does want to marry her. The whole waiting until gay people can get married always always always confused me. Brad…you have been married before. Whats the big freaking deal now? Whatever…I wasn’t sure about his commitment to Angelina but I really feel now that he totally adores her and would do anything for her. I believe he does want to marry her but he put his foot his mouth with that comment about waiting until gay marriage is legalized.

  11. Scout says:

    @Dibba – I really like Brad and Angelina and who they appear to be…but I DO agree with you about their stated reason as to why they don’t marry. It just comes across as sort of immature to me and often irritates me. Just doesn’t seem necessary …but, as I said, I think they are a great couple! 🙂

  12. teri says:

    I do believe he’s happy with his life that he wanted so bad. Happy to see Brad doing so many wonderful things and leading a full life for him and his family.

  13. sassenach says:

    @ Dibba- Brad donated 100k to a campaign to help fight Prop 8 when it was on the ballot and released a lengthy statement about it. I don’t think he is just using it as a excuse.

  14. Your mama says:

    So annoying – hope we have some new stars to read about. All these stories of BP, AJ & JA are so boring!!! Yawn

  15. mln76 says:

    I think he doesn’t want to get married because he’s still dealing with the blowback from his first marriage. It would seriously make a dude gun-shy to put himself in the same position again because this is one of the ugliest divorces in Hollywood history.

  16. Praise St. Angie! says:

    boy, they really picked some BAD pictures for the cover.

    but this…

    “Maddox and Pax and Zahra and Buff and Hensman and…Tito.”

    …cracked me UP! I love Ellen.

  17. Ms Smith says:

    Brad is dull. He admitted it himself. The only time he is interesting is when he talks about the women in his life.

  18. Bite me says:

    Jen happy blah blah… Jen great body and hair blah blah blah… Jen was bored in her marriage blah blah Justin makes Jen happy blah blah… Next

  19. atlantapug says:

    Stop. Just stop.

    Why are these idiots still getting covers together??? Do they really sell that many??? 7 years ago people!

    I truly think the 3 of them have a deal to dish up the past every time one of them has a project coming out. “Pssst, Jen, we’re gonna talk about you again, I gotta a movie to sell. In 6months when your movie comes out, you dish back. Ok, see ya later.”

  20. Cheyenne says:

    @Dibba: if he was attracted to insecure women he would never have been attracted to Angelina.

    OK did get one thing right, though. Brad essentially did say he was living a lie — while he was married to Aniston. By his own admission, his marriage was a crock.

  21. Gabrielle says:

    He is jealous.

  22. Addie says:

    WTF is this about Jennifer ‘approving’ stuff..come on She has a man and her ill mom to think about, not worry about usless s**t like this.

    seriously kaiser your bias towards all things Brange is clouding objectiivity here.

    Oh and ‘I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.’ Doesn’t seem open to misinterpretation, if you ask me.

    Always will root for and adore Angie, but this guy?? Jen dodged a bullet with this one.

  23. Rhiley says:

    Ugh, he is dressing so boring lately. I love Brad in loose fitting jeans, nice tee shirts, a brown, worn leather belt, scuffed boots, and no mullet. If he had a stupid LV bag, he’d look just like Angelina Jolie.

  24. mymy says:

    The sum total of the Parade interview was beyond Juvenile.I can’t for the life of me understand how he thinks his refusal to marry until “everyone can marry”as profound. I mean dude your the last person one looks to for marriage advice. You were rude and insensitive in the way you handed your divorce and new relationship. It would have been better to leave it alone. Make people believe you have some sense of that.I don’t begrudge anyone the right to divorce and move on. But to blame your former partner is beyond low. It is so narcissistic And he should just stop talking about his idea’s on Religion. He is so narrow minded..

    I came away from the article feeling sorry for Angelina, She wants the world to think Brad is a prize and it just made her look silly for hooking up with such a blowhard.

  25. Anaya says:

    What is a huvane?

  26. Jezi says:

    I agree with Love Angelina, I don’t think Jen had anyone say that either. I bet all 3 people are sick of the triangle. I know I am.

  27. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    @Anaya Stephen (I think thats his first name) Huvane. He is Jen’s PR person and he has often be accused of planting stories in tabloids to make his client look good.

  28. mln76 says:

    I don’t know if Jen approves anything but I know that Huvane and his minions talk to the tabs much more than any Jolie-Pitt sources. The tabs are more likely to repeat their ‘approved’ lines because they are more likely to get more info from Huvane down the road. It’s a vicious cycle and the reason why the tab stories are always slanted slightly pro Aniston.

  29. WhiteNoise says:

    Pitt is such a yawning mix of dim and smug. I really like Angie but how does she put up with him?

    That OK Mag rubbish is rubbish. Why would anyone even consider that it’s coming from credible sources??

  30. Addie says:

    I don’t get what this Brad is trying to say to Ellen in terms of marriage.

    1.)He said they will only when everyone else can.
    2.)Then he says that the kids are putting pressure though and is not sure if they will give in.
    3.)When Ellen asks if they will stick to the ’till everyone can’ thing, he says he doesn’t know what the future holds??

    Which is it? Why did he not JUST leave it at I DON’T know what the future holds.

    PS: Has Angie ever mentioned anything about only marrying when everyone else can? I never heard her say anything about it. Only heard her say that she doesn’t find it nessesary–or something along those lines.

    @Whitenoise: yawning mix of dim and smug = PERFECT discription!

  31. Dibba says:

    I always thought his transition from pothead couch potato into world crusadar/dad/sex machine was a little too fast for him. I wonder if he’s like WTH? I would think he needed a slower transition into his new self. All seemed so rushed and I always felt bad for Maddox because he must have been like WTH.

  32. Cheyenne says:

    What Jezi said. OK will make up all kinds of crazy sh*t to sell their magazine, the crazier the better.

  33. Ell says:

    He really needs to shut up about his personal life for a while, I think it’s humilating for Angelina.

    And the jealous thing did fleetingly cross my mind because of the timing. After all these years, finally Jennifer looks settled.

    But then a lot of theories crossed my mind. The assistant theory didn’t occur to me, Kaiser I think you might have hit on something, it certainly fits.

    If it wasn’t for the children I wish Angelina would get rid and be with someone more her equal, especially intellectually.

  34. Blummy says:

    Jennifer Aniston is so annoying. I cant stand to hear her talk for two minutes. That justin guy aint much better either

  35. Dibba says:

    They don’t seem like the marrying kind which is fine by me. They can’t do anything “conventional” that would make them lame and uncool (they think). As World Crusadars and Transformers of the World and Philosophers, they must not do anything “conventional” or mundane like the rest of us.

  36. Dibba says:

    I liked Angie better before she hooked up with BP. I remember seeing photos of her and Maddox in a magazine and I really admired her independence.

  37. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    No Addie. Never. I think she like made a statement supporting Brad’s but it was like supporting, not like that was her state of mind. Angelina never said that sh*t on her own. Brad made that comment when they had first got together, I don’t think he knew how this would work out, neither of them did, they were so cautious yet so in love with each other that they had babies but were so scared. Its kinda sweet.

  38. WhiteNoise says:

    @Addie – maybe he said it because he thought it was a deep, insightful thing to say at the time. Personally, I thought it was quite OTT and unnecessary, the sort of thing celebs say to make themselves look all compassionate and as if only they are capable of such enlightened thought.

    And now it’s coming back to bite him… maybe because Angie isn’t keen on going down that route with him? And who could blame her? 😉

  39. Maritza says:

    Brad now has the life he wanted with beautiful Angelina and the kids and Jennifer is happy with Justin Theroux. The tabloids only want to keep the myth triangle alive. People who believe these stories are wasting their time.

  40. fabgrrl says:

    I don’t think Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will ever get married. Here is why: I think that Angelina (and possibly Brad) is uncomfortable with the circumstances under which they got together. She may breeze over it, but I think that she is mindful that Brad was married when they got together. Who knows what the details were, she pursued Brad, Brad pursued her, it was a fling that went too far, or the stars, sun and moon aligned when their eyes met — who knows? But Brad *was* a married man. And if Angelina and Brad get married they are saying that marriage *is* important, that it *does* have more meaning than a “partnership”. Therefore, Brad’s marriage (to Jennifer) had meaning too, and their affair destroyed that. Love her or hate her, but I don’t think anyone can deny that Angelina has a brain in her head.

  41. Eve says:

    Agree with The Truth Fairy (comment # 1).


    Is that seriously the Aniston-approved talking point? That Brad just said that he was bored and unsatisfied in their marriage because he’s so JEALOUS of her new relationship? Really? Did Jennifer and her “friends” not read the parts about Angelina and their six kids? Well, if thinking that makes Jennifer Aniston happy, God bless.

    Yup. They never want to see anything that could shed a negative light on her. Like when he gave that interview to W and called his life before The Jolie a “dead end”, some of her diehard fans on Popsugar ignored that statement, only spotted the part where he called her a “sweetheart” (one even went on to say something like “See? He still likes her”).

  42. Riana says:

    I just want to know why Brad looks like liquid hobo since hooking up with Angie.

    Seriously. Remember during The Smiths when they were scorching and everyone said they were the hottest together.

    Now…just makes me wonder what if anything Angie expects from Brad. They seem to live very separate lives.

  43. whitedaisy says:

    Gah! When do these “sources” make it out of elementary school?

  44. Original Tiffany says:

    I read the first article and it NEVER said this.
    “and Brad brands her a mindnumbing bore and implies that his whole life with her was a lie.”
    Please point out where he said that Huvane you lying schmuck. Such a big to do about a tiny quote about himself!
    And who cares if he was a stoner, he was working, he was making money, he wasn’t a crackhead or alcoholic. Meh.

  45. Yup,the tabloids hit another 7 years of poor jen *gold*

  46. Kim says:

    Why would Angelina be mad at him for making these comments? B.S. cover & article. The 3 of them sell tabloids so the lies will never end.

  47. Mia says:

    Brad isn’t jealous of Justin Theroux. That’s hilarious. He’s happy with his life which is why her people and her fans are all pissy with him.

  48. Emma says:

    @Addie, 22 – “WTF is this about Jennifer ‘approving’ stuff..come on She has a man and her ill mom to think about, not worry about usless s**t like this.”

    Is that why Jen is prancing around NYC for photo ops with Justin, because she’s worried about her mother in Los Angeles? I wonder how how much money Jen had to give Heidi to keep her quiet? LOL! They’d probably have to pay Heidi’s Mom too.

    I also wonder if Jen’s PR team didn’t come out to refute the cheating/home-wrecker accusations because Heidi and her mother are both ‘lose cannons, so to speak’? Heidi is one classy lady.

  49. hateonit. says:

    oh please. this is all BS. jenn is over all this. and angelina is gorgeous but evil. shes always had evil ways i hate how everyone is looking at her like shes some saint. get over yourselves seriously. open your dam eyes. jens got a man. shes no longer the lonley one pining for brads heart. brad loves angie always and forever. THE END. it doesnt need to be extended to some big dumb thing. all of them are happy with their own dam lives. they are not news this is all so dam boring to me. -____-

  50. Phoenix says:

    Um, WHAT would Brad be jealous OF? A dirty greasy guy that looks like a serial killer? He certainly doesn’t want Jen back. Lets face it, as Mayer himself said, once you’ve banged Jolie, what else is there? He has Angelina, who is one million times the woman and person Aniston could ever dream of being. This is yet another Huvaniston attempt to attack Brad and Angelina, to drag them through the mud, and their family, and to make Aniston look like the victim instead of the villain she is. If anything, looking at the rubbish Aniston is dating now, she would be jealous of Angelina, and her and Huvane make it obvious that she is.

  51. Phoenix says:

    hateonit, HOW is Angelina ‘evil’?? She has never been evil in her life. On the other hand, being friends with and encouraging someone to call another woman the c word and say racist things about children, now THATS E.V.I.L. Aniston is the evil one with the evil ways. She is evil, manipulative and rotten to the core. Angelina is the one who hasn’t done anything but good. Aniston is satanic.

  52. Addie says:

    Again how can stuPITT’s comments be blamed on Angie or Jen???

    This is his mess and his alone.HE should get a taste of the hate these two women have been getting all these years.
