Brad -- why did you feel the need to be so cruel to Jen in your new interview in Parade magazine? Why did you blame her for making YOU feel pathetic?It's not enough, Brad Pitt, that you deserted Jennifer Aniston after seven years of marriage when you fell in love on set with Angelina Jolie, your Mr. & Mrs. co-star?
It's not enough that you publicly humiliated and embarrassed her by getting Angelina pregnant while still married to her. And furthermore that you and Angelina did a "fabulous" photo shoot for W magazine posing as husband and wife with children, while the bed you had shared with Jen was still warm?
Oh and that W shoot was apparently your idea, based on the "irony" of the American family. How ironic!
You blame her for ruining your life. "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 Jennifer] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't."
How harsh is that! Rudely harsh, Brad!
Now, you're promoting a movie -- Moneyball -- and you've more than moved on with your life. Why do you feel the need to stick it to your ex, who after all these years has finally found happiness with Justin Theroux?
Are you secretly upset that she is over you? Are you angry at her because she remained friendly with your mother?
What's even weirder is that as nasty as you are to Jen, you are ridiculously effusive about Angelina.
"Oh man, I'm so happy to have her," you tell Parade. One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She is such a great mom."
But that's not all. As if we didn't get it -- that Angie is so much better than Jen -- you go on and on, Brad.
"I'm satisfied with making true choices and finding the women I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much."
Wow, Brad. So you're really pointing out that your first marriage to Jen was "false." And it sure seems like you are "overselling" the fabulousness of your life with Angelina. Is that because you're still guilty about leaving Jen and you're still trying to justify it to yourself and the world?
