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.
