Brad Pitt Is 'So Happy' To Have Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt Is 'So Happy' To Have Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt takes the cover of this Sunday’s issue of Parade.

Here’s what the 47-year-old Moneyball star had to share with the mag:

On being a “satisfied man”: “Happiness is overrated. I put much more emphasis on being a satisfied man. I’m satisfied with making true choices and finding the woman I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much. A family is a risky venture, because the greater the love, the greater the loss. That’s the trade-off. But I’ll take it all.”

On his past: “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 actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”

On Angelina Jolie: “One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She is such a great mom. Oh, man, I’m so happy to have her.”

  • ka simply amazing

  • http://dama slig o lambert ^_____^cute

    yes happy

  • abie

    though I like brad and Angie together, I’ve always been wonering why people don’t like Jennifer Aniston, and have no respect for her hard time when brad left her but now I understand. She was not that good for him and is seeking for attention. If he would be happy with her he would never live her for another woman just because she’s more interestng and beautiful.

  • anustin

    good for u brad,that is all we need,happiness.

  • Maggie

    I know that this is going to be unpopular and I’m sorry, but I think he is an asshole. And weird!

  • Laki

    Everybody’s always hard on Jennifer about being stuck on Brad and constantly talking about him.
    Now he’s talking about how unhappy he was in his marriage to her.And in a douchey way.
    We get it,you’re with Angelina now and you’re super happy.Best of luck to you both.
    But just stop recycling stuff from 2005.A lot of us are over it.

  • Tommy

    Of cours happy for beautiful Angelina with her adrobale kids.

  • bobbi


    I get so sick of everyone vilifying Angelina as some homewrecker. I’m happy to read that PItt admits that his marriage wasn’t all that the mags/tabloids/fans made it out to be.

    The only two people who know how a marriage is are the two people IN the marriage.

    Wake up. These hollywood unions are just a fantasy for a lot of fans.

  • http://dama slig o lambert ^_____^cute

    how look at like to bad and dirty look in eyes

  • anustin

    am ing see the happiness,brad.

  • ka simply amazing

    really? on cover? really?

  • LuckyL

    LOL, the fans always knew it.

  • Lia

    Why talk about Jen, when you are so happy for years?
    Why even bother to bring up old cows?
    We know you’re happy, but maybe you shouldn’t talk badly about someone else.

  • Ms.uma

    Looks pretty beautiful handsome.

  • George CLOONEY

    I wish I could have a long term genuine relationship like Brad!
    Instead, I’m a billboard for cheap, nasty, fugly hoo*kers for several months at a time :-(
    Is this as good as it gets????
    No wonder everyone speculates about me….

  • ka simply amazing

    how depressing

  • http://dama slig o lambert ^_____^cute

    i see his wax figure to scary looking

  • Just call me cute

    Her eye back again. I’m glad

  • bdj

    Aww that’s sweet. BP and AJ are good people with six adorable children. They have done great work in New Orleans and throughout the world.

    New headlines “Jennifer Aniston is not dull”. This sh****t cracks me up.
    Don’t protest too much media. Baby Jane is somewhere pulling her dark roots out. McGreedy is planning his escape. Be careful what you whine about. Just an observation.

  • Ayjamal Bahman

    One lucky man !

  • miapocca

    The marriage was ages ago..why bring it up now…
    JA or Aj cannot be held responsible for your total happiness
    When you are happy it shows you don’t ned to blub every 2 secs
    This guy is a spineless loser who sounds like roboho holmes as time goes by
    goodluck to AJ

    Paramount announced today that filming for World War Z has moved to the London Borough of Southwark:

    During filming – which will take place on the Heygate Estate later this month – the production will provide young, aspiring film-makers from the local community with a unique opportunity to gain exclusive access to a major film set and gain unprecedented experience by assisting on the production.

    The Heygate Estate is due for demolition as part of significant investment in the area and a major regeneration programme. Although some perceive the Estate as having negative connotations for the borough, the local council and Film London, the capital’s film and media agency, have worked with Paramount Pictures to bring the local community a very special opportunity, on a production featuring one of the world’s biggest stars.

    Due for release on 21st December 2012, World War Z is a geo-political thriller from Paramount and Skydance Productions, in association with Hemisphere Media Capital and GK Films, is a Plan B Entertainment/Apparatus Productions. The film has shot extensively across the UK including Scotland as well as in Malta and Hungary.

    World War Z is one of a number of feature films currently shooting in the capital. The city’s unique locations, world-class crew and facilities make it attractive to film-makers all over the world. Feature film production in crucial to the city’s economy and generated approximately £866m for the capital in 2010, with early figures indicating that figure could rise in 2011.

    Produced by Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Colin Wilson and Ian Bryce, the screenplay is written by Matthew Michael Carnahan (State of Play) from Max Brooks’ best-selling novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. Starring Pitt (Moneyball), Mireille Enos (AMC’s “The Killing”), Daniella Kertesz in her feature film debut, James Badge Dale (The Departed) and Matthew Fox (“Lost”), the film’s Executive Producers are Forster, Brad Simpson, David Ellison, Paul Schwake, Dana Goldberg, Graham King and Tim Headington.

    The story revolves around United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Pitt), who traverses the world to help stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself. Enos plays Gerry’s wife Karen Lane; Kertesz is his comrade in arms, Segen.

    Behind-the-scenes talent includes two-time Academy Award-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson (The Aviator; JFK), production designer Nigel Phelps (Transformers: Dark of the Moon; Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), costume designer Mayes C. Rubeo (Avatar) and Academy AwardÒ-nominated editor Matt Chessè (Finding Neverland).

  • Rose

    It’s his life, if he wants to say he is happy with his life he has every right to say so, just like you. Stop hating on Brad for telling the truth, Brad the truth shall set you free, continue living your life with honesty. Haters are going to hate. The sad spook’s bullies are going to spin out of control, let them.

  • LuckyL


    And he took responsibility by leaving a sham of a marriage.

    BRAVO to Brad! Jennifer Aniston and her PR has been playing that woman who has been done wrong for years now. Her camp needs to understand Brad stayed silent for years and she road that wagon long ENOUGH!
    Now she has to deal with it PUBLICLY that he NOT HAPPY. Angelina had nothing to do with breaking up their marriage. He was pretending that marriage was something it was NOT.
