Brad Pitt Slams Jennifer Aniston Marriage? Actor Opens Up About Dark Period In Life

Did Brad Pitt just slam his marriage to Jennifer Aniston again? The actor recently opened up to Esquire about a dark period in his life which just happens to coincide with his marriage to the Friends star.

Pitt said that he felt like he was wasting his life in the early 2000s and that he needed to make a change to be happy.

Pitt said: “For a long time I thought I did too much damage-drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired … I spent years f-ing off. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany.”

Pitt was just finishing up the first Ocean’s 11 movie about a decade ago. He had one Oscar nomination under his belt and a seemingly happy marriage to the beautiful Jennifer Aniston. Of course, Pitt wasn’t exactly happy in the relationship.

In 2011, the actor opened up about his marriage to Aniston, saying that he felt “pathetic” during that period of his life.

Pitt said: “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. 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 … I think that my marriage [to Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”

Aniston and Pitt would divorce in 2005, the year that he starred opposite Angelina Jolie in Mr. And Mrs. Smith. Jolie and Pitt haven’t officially tied the knot yet, but there are rumors that there will be a summer wedding. After all, Pitt recently said that he’s never been happier in his life.

    This guy is something else; Talk about a jerk. One thing I like about Jennifer is that she has been quiet about their marriage to him from the get go. You don't ever hear her bashing Brad or that marriage. Hopefully they married for love; it didn't work out, they learned something about themselves and each other, they grew from the experience and moved on. Why must he continually answer questions about her, and attach her to these negative statements. Geez. THE GUY HAS NO CLASS WHATSOEVER.

    No, I think he was being honest about who he was when he was married to her. I think this writer is trying to make it about Jennifer and their marriage to stir shit up. Ie the title implying he slammed their marriage and called her/it pathetic, neither of which he did. He aid he was pathetic, and unhappy with himself, which would make any relationship suffer. nowhere did he say a foul thing about her or anything she had done wrong.

  3. Pat Herold

    I think he finally told the truth. He had gone on talk shows during the last couple of years of his marriage to Aniston and said how much he wanted a family, while at the same time Aniston was on the talk show curcuit talking about how much she was enjoying the Hollywood lifeslyle. She married way above her status. He made her a household name. It's all she wanted.

    the relationship ended 5 years ago. they both need to grow up and deal with reality. Brad mostly because every time he slams the time he was with Jennifer, she is just fighting back and telling her side. So when Brad gets over his feelings for Jennifer will he be totally happy in his relationship with Jolie until then he will be miserable. GO GET COUNSELING BRAD.

    He is pathetic. Why can't he just let it go, like Jen has? He needs to stir up gossip just to sell his failing acting career, and latest movie. He isn't any happier, just mastered by a better puppet master.

    I think it's bad taste to talk about an ex, no matter what. It's done and over. Not sure what the reason behind it is. Move on.

    I think he spoke about 'himself'and how much he was not happy in that marriage to Jen and wasting his life away doing the hollywood lifestyle which he probably thought was lacking something more meaningful for him. I don't think he meant to slam her or bash her as a person just that they were not enhancing each others lives. Maybe he should have not mentioned her or their marriage but the truth is he wanted something different and realized it when he met Angelina…Go Brad. I still like Jen and think she's cool. It's her turn to find her truth and be happy.
