Brad Pitt Pleads For Jennifer Aniston Comment-Gate to End: She Doesn't Deserve It!

by at . Comments

Despite attempting to clarify himself once already, Brad Pitt again tried to quiet the PR storm he created with his apparent diss of Jennifer Aniston in Parade.

In a sitdown with Matt Lauer on Today, the Moneyball star addressed the controversy arising from the interview in which he - intentionally or not - made Jen out to look like a dull bore he was pretending to be happy with.

What did he have to say for himself this morning?

"I've been told about the reaction," he said. "I don't know what was pieced together or put together. All I know is that my point was, the best thing I'd done as a father is be sure my children have a good mother."

"That's all I was, or am, trying to say. It has no reference to the past."

"And I think it's a shame that I can't say something nice about Angie without Jen being drug into it. You know, she just doesn't deserve it."

They also have absolutely no interest in having their personal life serve as public fodder, which has been the case for about 10 years running.

Pitt seems to get particularly riled up about that component:

"I don't wanna be encumbered by any of that. I know my intentions, and I know what I believe, and I know things get misconstrued," he said.

"I know there's a good cycle and a good story to say we're splitting up. And when we don't, to say we've come together again. It's a new cycle, and then there's a secret wedding. 'No, that was put on hold because they're upset.'"

"It's, you know - I live outside of that, and it's much healthier."

A fair point, but there's no denying Pitt's pretend marriage comment was made by the actor himself, as was his subsequent statement clarifying it.

If it was all spin, as he claims, why go out of your way to put out a statement? Was it because Jen went ballistic over it, as has been reported?

No, Brad says, but he did issue it with her in mind.

"No. No. But she's also a seasoned veteran and she knows. You know, and she's a valuable person. We spent seven years together. Come on."

And while their marriage didn't work out, their friendship apparently has.

"I don't want them to say anything bad like that about Jen," he said, adding that after all of this, "She's still a dear friend of mine."


Hi miranda!wanna be ur friend my name is saadat g,this is my email address be wating for ur reply.


I have come to believe Brad is really a punk; and if he didn't want Jennifer brought into it HE should have not brought it up. I used to enjoy his movies, but can not give my money to an idiot. What sensitivity chip, don't think he ever had one.


So many people critized him for what he said.well,let also applaude that he want to explain what he really means.and its not the first time he said something like that.last year,when we let grow the beard,he said that reason was to be bored.he's honest


Brad loves the lady, bt he is just failing to admit to it.Looking for friends anyone interested can drop me a text.


Boycott their movies there are more worthwhile movies we can enjoy!!Thanks


Mostly our words will be misinterprated.... I believe brad wants to say about Jen is all good not bad.


I agree with all the comments.Brad and Angeline are both drug addicts he is stoned all the time and her well we all know her history thats why they both get along!!! having all those kids keeps them both busy so need to deal with their own troubles . They are 2 destrutive people!!! i have not seen any Brad or Angelina's movies since they hooked up...not even when it is free!!!!Brad Pitt is a has been old and hagged!!


Maybe brad is a little jealous he waits till now to say things like that .I look at him today and look back to how he looked when he was with Jen somehow I think he looked relaxed calm refreshed today I see him tired just plain not refreshed he can say what he wants but people believe me somewhere in him he regreted leaving Jen I hope things work out for her and her man is Mr.right and maybe even a baby then what Mr.brad Pitt.


Why does the media not let the subject of Brad and Jennifer die? It's been over 5 years and Brad and Angie have carved out a life they obviously want and enjoy. How many marriages end in divorce yet the participants are not hounded as this couple has been. Let's stop draging Jennifer into every story about Brad. They are no longer a couple and she does not belong. Lets be happy for Brad and Angie.


I was hoping to be the 3rd wife, but he's getting to look a little used up....I'll pass.
