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."

Hint to Brad: From this month on, whenever the subject of your 1st marriage come into the interview, switch gears, and change the subject pronto. You will always be associated with the idea of your ex-wife,and the general public is Not going to let you off the hook if one sentence is echoed towards her. By all indications you feel that you have a fulfilling relationship with your current squeeze and the 6 children that you share. And remember sooner or later the same fans that liked you 2 years ago, are the same fans who will turn on you at a moment's Notice.
P.S.
Never again discuss your ex-wife with others who are incapable of solving the problems that led to "the divorce." PEACE!!

Brad Pitt is too egotistical for my tastes, I will pass on the movie. I don't want to donate a penny to a man with such little integrity.

I would think his words were probably taken out of context, when he felt at ease with the interviewer. It would be a shame that someone would project their own misery/boredom/blame onto someone else. I mean, wasn't the excuse for that long dead grey rat of a beard, while he has been with Angie, is simply, that he was bored? I don't know anyone whom can say that and get away with it, without looking like they are waiting for others to constantly please, or entertain them.... lol.. Don't like to say anything negative, but I would say, the only few people I have known that were constantly bored, is because they were boring people.

No matter what he says the fact remains he cheated on his wife. And history shows, once a cheater, always a cheater. However, that has nothing to do with his movies, I still enjoy him as an actor, I just have no respect for him as a husband.

Brad Pitt is a cheater and doesn't know what faithful means, he cheated on Jennifer and he'll continue to cheat on Angelina. As for Angelina she's a dope head tramp that goes after other women's men. She went after Brad knowing he had a good wife. She's continued to rub it in Jennifer's face since their divorced. She constantly watches Brad because she knows her time is coming when he'll leave her skanky ass for another woman. Jennifer is a beautiful,sweet,and very successful woman. She deserves a wonderful man and great life full of happiness. To bad she has to deal with the likes of Angelina that can't control her jealousy and nasty temper. Brad needs to wake up and be a man!

Get over yourself Brad. No matter what you do, the public will always see you as a two-timing cheat. The fact that you so freely speak without thinking is hilarious. You are obviously trying to justify that you left your wife for another woman. You can't disguise it, and dress it up, no matter how many kids you have together. You cheated on your wife, and no self-respecting woman would put up with that. I wonder if you new wife would do so if you did the same thing again.

i had stopped watching BradPitt's movies for a while.
but now i'm js going to totally boycott it.
what an insensitive jerk?
what kind of man photshoot and hang out with another woman who he was rumoured with, as soon as he divorced? all these years he had been hurting Jen again and again by not defending her all these while.
and now he is adding more salt to the wound.
not a very ethical person at all.

watever this dude meant with his comments, there is just one question in mind - why does he keep answering these Jen related questions??? seriously, its been so fuking long now, and he keeps talking about the past. this whole thing is selfinflicted. He should stop talking about the ex, and let this whole thing rest. god.

Funny how we all talk English an yet we don't understand each other any more than if we all spoke foreign languages. The text can be read either way depending on your own bias - emphasis on BIAS o/k? I still think he was actually putting himself down in the discussion not Jennifer - the populist media grabbed hold of a story possibility and before you know it third hand accounts are saying he was putting Jennifer down - go figure....

Brad Spitt is a $$$$$$$$ opportunistic jerk and a self promotional egotist, it doesn't matter at whose expense and he could care less who it hurts. But I will say to everyone it's been so many years everyone has moved on sooo long ago, the public should not respond to these tabloids, they're just keeping this kind of thing alive for their own self serving $$$$$$$, at Jennifers expense and so is Brad.

Our seven-year-old was searching the word 'weapons' on Google the other day and ended up on some white-supremacist site. I'm sure now we're on all kinds of watch lists.
