Brad Pitt Chats Oscar Buzz With Matt Lauer On 'Today'
Here are some highlights from the 47-year-old actor’s chat, which took place inside the Oakland A’s home, The Coliseum.
On Oscar buzz surrounding his new movie Moneyball: “Well, it was – it remains a great piece of material for me that I got to take on. And, we’re all – it’s too early to talk about all that other stuff. It’s all good fun if your number comes up, and it’s even more fun when your friend’s number comes up.”
On his recent comments about ex Jennifer Aniston: “I don’t know what was pieced together or put together. All I know is that my point was, the best thing I’d done as a father is be sure that my kids have a good mother. That’s all I was, or am, trying to say. It has no reference to the past. And I think it’s a shame that I can’t say something nice about Angie without Jen being drug in. You know, she doesn’t deserve it … I don’t want them to say anything bad like that about Jen. She’s a dear friend of mine.”
