Brad Pitt sat down with Oprah Winfrey for the first time since his split with Jennifer Aniston.
Pitt was at Harpo Studios in Chicago on Wednesday to tape the show to promote his new film “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which hits theaters on Christmas Day.
Oprah was still high off the Obama win the night before and opened up the discussion talking about the victory rally at Grant Park.
“I would have invited you out with me to the rally last night,” Oprah immediately told Brad when he sat down for the interview. “But I was down with the people and I didn’t think you would want to be.”
“You mean the non-VIP area?” Brad joked, before assuring his host that he took public transportation to be at the rally “just like everyone else.”
Oprah didn’t ask Pitt about his ex and her pal Aniston, instead focusing on his relationship with Angelina Jolie and their six children.
Brad told Oprah he is “the happiest I’ve ever been in my whole life,” adding “Angie is the love of my life.”
Those who attended the taping described the interview as “awkward,” and said Brad fidgeted in his seat a lot.
“It seems like he has ADD, because he’s antsy and has to move around a lot,” said one audience member.
When asked about his tattoos by a woman via O staellite, Pitt refused to show them or even talk about them, saying it was “personal.”
Oprah’s interview with Brad Pitt is scheduled to air on November 18.
