Brad Pitt Denies Angelina Jolie Affair

Brad Pitt Denies Angelina Jolie Affair

Brad Pitt proudly proclaims that his partner Angelina Jolie is NOT a homewrecker. Here’s what the 45-year-old Curious Case of Benjamin Button star had to say in W Magazine‘s February A-list issue::

On the public’s misinterpretation of his and Angie’s “affair”:“What people don’t understand is that we filmed [Mr. & Mrs. Smith] for a year. We were still filming after Jen [Aniston] and I split up. Even then it doesn’t mean that there was some kind of dastardly affair. There wasn’t. I’m very proud of the way that it was handled. It was respectful. [The film] will mean something to our kids. It will, that’s all.”

On Aniston’s recent comment that it was “uncool” for Angie to openly state that she and Brad fell in love on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith: “Listen, man, Jen is a sweetheart. I think she got dragged into that one, and then there’s a second round to all of that Angie versus Jen. It’s so created.”

On his current relationship with Jennifer Aniston: “We still check in with each other. She was a big part of my life, and me hers. I don’t see how there cannot be [that]. That’s life, man. That’s life.”

On photographing Angie for W magazine’s November 2008 photo spread: “We have fun working together; these things bring you closer. And let me tell you, it’s really sexy to see your loved one through the lens. I went much further [than the cover shot of Jolie breast-feeding]. I didn’t show those.”

On what motivated his request for photographer Chuck Close, who uses a technique called Daguerrotype that captures every fine line and flaw: “[to not have to be] the guy coming out of the ocean water with his T-shirt wet, even though I’ve done that, too, but have always walked away feeling a little crap about it.”

On how family life has changed him: “I quit smoking. That was the only thing that got me to quit. That was it. Done.”

On gay marriage rights: “People who are against gay marriage do not understand the very freedoms that they themselves are enjoying. What if someone said, ‘Sorry, no Christianity here? No Judaism. Certainly no Mormons.’ No one would stand for that, and I wouldn’t allow anyone to say that either. I’d fight them in the same way.”

    oh please! It seems Saintalina is handling her image well like i heard, she’s making Brad kiss her ass by sending him out on all magazine interviews they could get to defend her against Aniston otherwise someone is going to sleep on the couch. With these Hollywood stars and their image one never know what is the truth- it is always ABOUT DAMAGE CONTROL. and O.K Brad enough with how your life is perfect, you are never tired with 1000 kids in the hse, and that yr kids are more special than any kids on earth.

  • crystal

    Angelina’s “sending” Brad out on interviews?! Hahahahahahaha!

    The man’s the title character in an Oscar frontrunner. Brad’s worrying about his own career right now. Trust me, no one’s “making” him do anything.

    Although, it amuses me that some of you are so naive that you don’t think he and Angie plotted out EXACTLY how he was going to respond. That some of you think she’ll read this and be surprised is hilarious.

  • Dani

    READ “ART OF WAR”
    BRAD IS A PRO AT THIS. HE IS BELITTLING X.
    HE IS PROTECTING HIS FAMILY.
    REMEMBER INDIFFERENCE IS THE BEST REACTION.
    X IS HATING
    ANGIE IS IGNORING AND BRAD IS INDIFFEREENT.

    IT MUST HURT SO MUCH. IMAGINE IT TAKES YOU 2 DAYS AND OFF THE RECORD MOMENTS TO COME UP WITH THE “UNCOOL” STATEMENT. AND THEN YOUR OPPONENT RESPONDS WITH “YOU’RE A SWEETHEART” LMAO LOVES IT

    Brad and Angie deserve each other.

  • Mia

    This shows only Brad, Jen and Angie know what is going on with them. And you so called know it all(s) need to get a life. If you are a fan great be a fan. But stop thinking you know the enter workings of someone’s mind. And why they do what they do. Sometime I think you guys are on the edge of crazy. When it comes to the Jo-Pitts and JA.

  • Teamjoliepitt

    God knows what truly happened, that’s why Brad and Angelina and the whole family are truly blessed!!!

    LOVE U SO MUCH Brad and Angie!

  • Julia

    Oh please Brad , no one is buying your crap. Angie doesn’t think Jen’s a sweetheart, she keeps throwing digs at her and I am sure Angie doesn’t appreciate you saying so. Speaking of Angie, she was the one said you fell in love on Mr. and Mrs. Smith so now you are calling her LIAR. You are pathetic. Washed up has been, his moving bombed and now your trying to create drama and attention.

  • http://JustJared Carla

    I agree with #13, Brad and Jen are both obsessed with Angelina Jolie. Stop this back and fourth with each other already !!!

  • alekziel

    Awww Brad, his Loved One.

    Brad will never say nasty things about his X´s, even the cheater Paltrow, he is just like Angie.

    Learn that Aniston!

  • Janey

    Both Brad & AJ have admitted they fell in love during the filming. So now Brad’s saying it was OK because it was at the END of the filming? What crap!

    The fact is, Jennifer was upset when Angelina bragged about them falling in love on the set. So whatever the technical status of both relationships, it was still a hurtful thing to do. Why doesn’t Brad just own up to the fact that his actions hurt someone and say he’s sorry?

    If I hurt someone, I’m truly sorry and apologize. Why can’t he?

    What a typical narcissist — Brad thinks he’s perfect and is unable to admit to any flaws or misbehavior.

  • why?

    why? @ 01/07/2009 at 11:23 am Actually @ 01/07/2009 at 10:52 am She’s a sweetheart but I’d rather have children with Angelina.
    She’s a sweetheart but I’d rather be living with Angelina

    Vince Vaughn – She’s a sweetheart but I’d rather date someone else.

    It’s called being kind. It’s saying what she says does not effect our life.

    At the end of the interview Brad went home to Angelina, his kids and his parents to have a big family dinner. Life is too short to keep whiing.
    ************************************************

    That is so true!

    X is a puzzle to me! Her exes praise her and yet they all dumped her! Brad, Vince, Paul, Mayer. They says she is a sweetheart, nice, smart, funny, etc., but why do men dumped her? Is her face that ugly that even her good body cannot compensate for it? Is she that neurotic, whinny, needy, clingy in real life, is she not good in bed? why are the men in her life get bored with her?

And why would Brad say sorry, when he didnt have an affair with Angelina while he was still married? Their marriage was already over before Angelina entered the frame.

  • Halo

    All I can say is that I think it’s very sweet about what he said about Jennifer Aniston. They were together for a long time and it’s nice to know that he calls her a “sweetheart”. It sounded so current and that’s a good thing because it means they don’t hate each other.

    I also love how they keep in touch and how he defends her by saying she got dragged into a public mess. Jennifer must be an amazing woman for Brad to keep in touch with, especially after 6 kids. I know Brad’s mother ADORES Jen but I didn’t think Brad and Jen were still in each other’s life in a way. Very cool.

    Jennifer and Brad just had different paths in life. If they didn’t, Brad would still be with Jennifer and he wouldn’t quit smoking lol (joke). They obviously weren’t meant to be together forever but they were meant to find each other when they did.

    Very sweet Brad.

  • mimi

    Wow, he finally says something sensible. I’m glad to see him clear things up a bit and stand up for his past and current partners. That’s what a gentleman does…he finally did something decent.

    I’ve always felt that this drama was blown out of proportion by the media, but still believe that Angelina has thrown digs here and there. Giving Angelina the benefit of the doubt on those comments, maybe she did not mean to be low-class and inconsiderate, but then she’s far less intelligent than I had thought she was.

  • the real lou

    This has to be the craziest sh*t I have ever seen in my life.Why are some of you STILL rehashing a 4 year old break-up?My lord ,everytime a new interview comes out it’s the same crap.Whatever happen to reading an interview and just enjoying it?I am being to wonder if certain people (and this is with both fan bases Angelina’s and Jen’s) have some mental issues.This crap has gone way beyond being a “fan” and it’s scary.

  • wobbler30

    I got a question for Brad how can someone drag you into an interview when you asked him to turn the tape off and say something like I laughed at a cartoon of myself loading a gun. And for “her to give such a detailed timeline.” And calling back and saying “consider the source.”
    Who’s lying you or Jen she says she “don’t not talk to you”. That she sends congrats to you not have long convos like you two are best friends.
    He need to think about stuff before he speaks.
    Both Jen and Angie are sweethearts.
    Now how is the media causing problems when the whole thing was basically over until she started talking about Angie?
    Unbeknowest you both just opened up another can of worms to keep this triangle.
    It’s his fault for not being honest. You know what I don’t even blame JA because he told her some things but not the whole truth that’s why she is so hurt and mad. She hates AJ because she is jealous but she praises Brad because he doesn’t talk about his life in mags as much as AJ until now. It was embarrassing to her and AJ doesn’t care and lets’s it fly.

  • http://justjared.com OATH

    BRAD CARES FOR HIS CAREER ONLY.
    WHY IS PT?

  • a total fan

    Great !! He finally told the world that Jen knew about his love for Angie. And that he and Angie started seeing each other after the LEGAL seperation. So in a since he has told Jen, no more “uncool” comments from you. And no more Vanity Fair comments suggesting she didn’t know of his attraction to Jolie.

    He could have attacked Jen for fueling the fires to the Team A and Team J but instead he was a gentleman and called her a “sweetheart”. So how can Jen now attack a his love, he has been nothing but kind to her.

    And he stated they still check in on each other. Please don’t blow it out of perportion saying he still loves Jen. IMHO I think it just says his reps sends a messege every now and then, maybe wishing her a Happy Birthday or congrats on a good film.

    I don’t see how Jen will ever be able to play the pity party, I didn’t know what was going on victim again.

    I think Brad has finally put an end to all of this. Thus leaving his family to live their lives in peace.

    GREAT JOB BRAD !!!!!!!!

  • mbk

    Brad is one of the most insecure and disgraceful men ever. Notice he jumps from one relationship to the other in very little time. Then immediately adapts the personality of whoever he is with. He is insecure and doesn’t know who he is or who he wants to be so he constantly needs to change is persona – in fact he does better acting OUTSIDE of movies.
    He is disgraceful and obnoxious how he left the woman he was with for 7 years. Hey. if you’re unhappy then fine end the marriage. But you do a photo shoot like the one in W magazine shortly after you leave the woman you were with for 7 years. Then in very little time you’re carrying around another woman’s 2 kids. Then you get that woman pregnant shortly after.
    You name a trust fund after a song from a romantically and sexually explicit movie where you met the other woman while still married. And you throw your wife under a bus knowing that tabloids were making assumptions that your wife didn’t want a child – so you do and say everything to suggest that was the reason so you look innocent and victimized and distract others from your disgusting behavior and treatment.
    And you sell baby photos and shoot “personal private photos” of your children and family – any parents with dignity wouldn’t do this. And don’t say it’s for charity and to stop people from making money off of them because as we speak papz and mags are making money off of your kids when they take “candid” shots. So dont complain about not having privacy – you shouldn’t have been so public and obnoxiously with how the relationship began and trotting it around. You could have chosen the more private route and been more respectful.
    You are a PHONY, CLASSLESS, DISGRACEFUL, PATHETIC, SELF ABSORBED, HEARTLESS man and father.

  • sonia

    sonia @ 01/07/2009 at 11:28 am hello dedicated fans, i just think that brad did the right thing, you know every thing he or Angie does, they discuss it first,, brad knows something that the viewing public does not, all of her boyfriends find out once they date her, look at her erratic behavior, lack of vocabulary,etc. i always thought something was wrong with her and so did everyone else, she is missing something, so why attack her, brad knows the real deal and I’m sure so does Angie now, i respect brad for his decision, what a man, a real man, only women gossip, attack, be petty,, real men do not behave that way. and brad has the best kind of karma in the great life he has, he looks better than ever

  • Orchid

    I’m glad to read that Brad quit smoking. Well done.

  • crystal

    Heee. I love the people who buy into this crap and think Jen and Brad really have all the respect in the world for each other. They’re both full of it. It couldn’t be more obvious that these two people have had nothing to do with each other in years.

  • tora

    Like I said last night, if Brad was still with Jen, he would be told to do a photo shoot on the beach half naked with blond streaks and fake tanner on him. As a matter of fact, she would pose naked next to him ha ha. It’s happened before on Vanity Fair mag, he’s ran away from that garbage now! He said right here!

  • leila

    That was a very clever move, what’s Maniston going to say to get publicity now?.

  • Yeahright

    ” I quit smoking “. YEAH RIGHT. My parents were in Montreal during the filming of Benjamin Button last year and the guy smoked like a chimney between takes. Maybe he only has quit in front Angie, or maybe smokes between takes don’t count.

  • Mary Diamond

    Someone posted above that Brad’s movie isn’t selling, so he’s giving interviews stirring up old news. Didn’t Angie do the same with Changeling? For a couple with so many obsessed fans, their movies are failing miserably.

    Changeling – budget $55million – domestic gross $36 in 10 weeks.
    Benjamin Button – budget $150 – domestic gross $81 in 2 weeks.
    —-

    Fans are just so tired of them and their image.

  • jay

    They cheated and Angelina hates herself for it because she did exactly what her Dad did to her Mom. She hates Brad and herself…..they can deny it all they want but they know the truth. Did Angelina ever let her Dad off the hook. Maybe her dad just fell in love with someone else like Brad and Angelina did????? Can’t have it both ways.

  • Angie is a tool

    Brad Pitt confirmed that he still contacts Jennifer Anniston and that her part of his life is and was to big to not be in regular contact…hmmm not even six kids can remove that.

    He agreed that Jennifer Anniston’s comment was not made to be printed and that she is a sweetheart that would not harm anyone.

    He contradicted Angie and even though he said that they did not have affair as Angie eluded to which was VERY UNCOOL. Even if they think this movie will be special to their kids neither should make that comment in public. It is sad sad sad that Angie needs this much attention.

  • marina

    “cachetada con guante blanco” how do you say this in English? It means to answer with class and gentleness to someone who did not act like that to you.

  • Halo

    The people are who are anti-Jennifer are so nasty here. I’m happy he’s with Angelina but man people just hate Brad saying something nice about Jennifer.

    Just get over it.

    P.S. I just seen some current Brad pics (5mins ago) and he was caught smoking. I’m kinda mad that I believed him in my earlier post.

    halo, please post the link to the pics.

    If they are from the movie he is filming, remember that in movies you have to act and do as your director and the script says.

  • Corey to cool

    Ok here it goes, this is a long one.

    I doubt Angie sent Brad to do this, why can’t people believe that they are happy. People want them to break up; people want them to be unhappy. I am doing a study on human nature and the more I study people the more I realize that human like death and destruction. We like heartache and pain as long as it not happening to us, we find joy in other pain.
    I was dump for someone else, it sucks, they have a family and the life that I wanted with her, I know how Jen feels, it been 6 years and I am still a little bitter, but I can be a little bitter, I have that right . Jen has that right also to be a little bitter.
    Now I still talk to my x all the time she will always be a part of my life. for 3 years I was a part of her family and she was a part of mine. We can’t walk away from all the other people we love. I was there when her niece was born, her sister birth couch, her nieces god mom and She is my nieces god mom. so without talking about the past relationship stuff we talk like old friends, and say stuff like my mom got a new car, or my sister messing up in school again, or mom misses you, you should drop by. As the years go by we are becoming better friends and yes me and her sister talks about her wife any chance we get. I want to keep her and her family close and she wants to keep me and mines close to. So I can understand why Brad still talks to her and it a sign of strength not weakness for all party involved, I know that first hand.

    I love Angie and however it went down, however her and brad got together it’s none of anyone business we don’t have stake or claim to this people we don’t know them or own them. They are not friends or family they are not even real so they are PR figment of our imagination. They give us bit of who they really are and we mix that up with the charters they betray in our favorite movie and form this people in our heads. Back to my point there has to be a point was the rest of the world has to let it die. People who say Brad using Angie, Angie using Brad know nothing. Angie and Brad are together, they will be together and raise those happy health little rugrats, they are not breaking up, she not sucking the life out of him, he not doing anything bad to her they have 6 kids that will make anyone look older and anyone drop a few pounds.
    People that are still on the Jen thing, let it go, she dating, she hot and yes I met her she is very nice. I don’t know if she found her true happiness like Brad did but she will, and she will still be hot and a very nice person. She doesn’t need anyone pity or resentment because if there was a victim in this whole thing it Jen but she not living like the victim so stop victimizing her, stop demonizing her like she did something wrong. Like I said before she is allowed to be a little bitter.
    It doesn’t have to be Angie or Jen they both really beautiful, strong, smart women who I admire. I like them both

  • Halo

    #48

    You say he’s crying for an Oscar but he’s not going to win it. He was terrible in Benjamin Button. He had no emotion or expression in any of his scenes. His lack of chemistry with Cate did not help either.

    I’m sorry but Brad is out the running for an Academy Award.

  • crystal

    Benjamin Button is performing better than expecting, and will be in theaters until March. Sorry all you crying bomb. You lost this round. There is no one who knows ANYTHING about films or box office who will call it a failure. Especially when it’s the frontrunner for Best Pic at the Oscars. I know that must sting.
