Brad Pitt doesn’t give many interviews — and now maybe we know why. After discussing his personal life with Parade magazine, the Moneyball star managed the rare feat of enraging and humiliating both his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, and his current partner, Angelina Jolie.
“Brad is in deep trouble with both Jen and Angelina” an insider tells OK! in this week’s issue, on sale everywhere Thursday!
The interview started with a little healthy self-deprecation. Reflecting on who he was 10 or 12 years ago, Brad described himself as a “pathetic” slacker, “sitting on a couch, holding a joint…. I wasn’t living an interesting life.”
So far, so good. Until Brad added, “I think that my marriage [to Jennifer] had something to do with it — trying to pretend the marriage was something it wasn’t.”
Remember when Jen said Brad was missing “a sensitivity chip”? Apparently, he still hasn’t grown one. Here, Jen has finally put their painful divorce behind her and is talking marriage and babies with new love Justin Theroux — and Brad brands her a mindnumbing bore and implies that his whole life with her was a lie.
Was it really mere thoughtlessness? Some insiders believe otherwise — that it’s killing Brad to see Jen and Justin mooning like giddy teens.
“Brad’s got a real competitive, vicious streak, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s jealous,” a Jen pal tells OK!. “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 during their marriage. 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.”
At first, the public put-down wounded Jen, adds another source: “She was angry and confused. But then it became obvious to her — and everyone else in their world — that he’s just envious of how happy she is with her new man.”
