Moneyball star Brad Pitt may have managed an epic, rare feat. Enraging and humiliating both his ex-wife and his life partner with one series of quotes.
Talking about one's pretend marriage to Jennifer Aniston will do that.
How bad has it gotten? “Brad is in deep trouble with both Jen and Angelina” an insider tells OK! in this week’s issue, for what it's worth (very, very little).
At issue is Brad's interview with Parade, which he began with self-deprecation. Talking about himself 10-12 years ago, he called himself a “pathetic” slacker, “sitting on a couch, holding a joint…. I wasn’t living an interesting life.”
All well and good. Until ...
“I think that my marriage [to Jennifer] had something to do with it," he added. "I was trying to pretend the marriage was something it wasn’t.”
Jen, who famously said Brad was missing “a sensitivity chip,” may have been proven right here, despite Brad's attempts to clarify the comment.No matter the context, it can't feel too good to hear Brad brand her a mind-numbing bore and imply that his whole life with her was a lie.
Was it really mere thoughtlessness? Some insiders believe otherwise, that it’s killing Brad Pitt to see Jen and Justin Theroux so in love.
“Brad’s got a real competitive, vicious streak, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s jealous,” a Jen pal, who is totes a real person, says.
“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."
“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.”
So, there you go. Eat it, Brad ... that anonymous source told you!
