Brad Pitt Answers: Did Jennifer Aniston Contact Him Following Marriage Comments?(VIDEO)


Brad Pitt's interview with Matt Lauer aired on the TODAY show Thursday, and he seemed much more open to address his marriage to Jennifer Aniston after his comments to PARADE magazine caused a bit of uproar among the press. 

"She doesn't deserve it," Brad said of his ex wife. "It happens to me every time. ... She's good people. There should be a statue of limitations on this thing."

His quotes to PARADE read in part: “I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.” He also said, “One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom.”

When asked to clear up those comments, Brad told Matt, "Please don't read it. I don't read these things, because I don't want to be encumbered by any of that. I know my intentions and I know what I believe and I know things get misconstrued."

So did Jen contact him following his PARADE comments on their marriage?

"No," he answered frankly. "She's a seasoned veteran. She's a valuable person. We spent seven years together."

He also said of his ex, "I don't want them saying anything bad about Jen. She's a dear friend." As for the lesson he's learned from all this, "Don't talk. I don't wanna live on guard, and I should live on guard I guess."

The Moneyball star added, quasi jokingly, "I got a knack for stepping into shit. ... I do every year and it's okay."

As for the rumors that he and Angelina Jolie are planning a secret marriage, he replied coyly, "If I told you, it wouldn't be a secret." 

What do you think of the whole Pitt-Jolie-Aniston hoopla? Are you over it? Sound off in the comments!

    team Jennifer Aniston! REGARDLESS of if you're not HAPPY in a relationship it doesn't make it ok to cheat! Brad should have told Jen he wasn't happy and wanted out or that he was growing inappropriate feelings for someone else! AND Angelina should have been a woman and waited for him to leave Jen. But then again she's known for stealing peoples men (i.e. Billy Bob)
