To recap, he recalled feeling like he was living pathetically, saying "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 had something to do with it. I was trying to pretend the marriage was something it wasn't."
But then his PR guys sent over an apology from Brad. He claimed his words had been misinterpreted in the interview.
And now we learn it was actually JEN's PR peeps who made it clear the comments were what he should feel pathetic about.
Apparently they contacted his team immediately. They were absolutely insulted (as they should have been), and a Pitt insider says:
They got his team involved and Brad was read the riot act — the only way you can read the riot act to Brad Pitt.
(The next day, the apology was sent.)
No one believes his words were taken out of context — he said what he said. I do [think] he's remorseful [though]. We [just] think he's jealous she's in love.
Hmmm, innneresting. He's definitely still in the ecstasy kind of love with Angelina, but this wouldn't be the first time we knew a guy in love with one woman but still jealous when an old flame hooks up with someone else.
But back to the nitty gritty here. Jennifer is clearly head over heels with Justin Theroux, and we'd bet our money that she would choose him now over taking Brad back any day. So we don't think the comments hurt her heart, necessarily.
It's just simply an issue of respect. You guys spent how many years together? C'mon, Brad, you can weave those words a little better.
The issue is resolved, but the damage is done. But it's like what else can Brad do about it? They're both happy with the right person for each of them. This will probably blow over sooner than later.
