Brad Pitt: Aniston is a "Dear Friend," "Valuable Person"


Brad Pitt
landed himself in a heap of trouble over a quote about ex-wife Jennifer Aniston -- and this morning, he cleared the air on "Today."

"I don't know what was pieced together or put together," Pitt says of an interview with Parade where he said he wasn't "living an interesting life" and his marriage to Aniston had something to do with it.

"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," Pitt told Matt Lauer today. "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."

Pitt continued to lay on the compliments for Jen, adding that "She's good people" and "She's a dear friend of mine ... a valuable person."

The lesson he's taken away from this all: "Don't talk."

Good luck with that one, Brad.

Loved how Brad shut that gossip monger, Matt Lauer the LOSER down. I agree with Brad there should be a "statute of limitations" on the Jen vs Angie thing. He did not hook up with Angie before he separated from Jen. All 3 have acknowledged this. Yet the tabloids keep telling that lie as if its not already a known fact. Good lord they have 6 kids already . MOVE ON PRESS.

Brad needs to let it go. If he's so happy with Angie, then why is he still bringing up the past. If his life is so interesting with Angie, talk about that. and a note to b mcclain, Angie admitted they fell in love on the set of Mr. & Mrs Smith, there was more than one pic taken of them looking quite close. I don't know how you put a "statue of limitations" on hurting and humiliating someone. Of Course Brad would like one, he's the offender.

Good grief...who cares about the Jenn vs. Jolie thing anymore??? It's is SO OLD NOW. We should really be focused on something more interesting.

I'm glad they're happy, but seeing the Jolie Pitts troll around town together is actually tiring... all I can see is all the work that is going into that HUGE family...good for them, but PLEASE MOVE ON.
