Listen up, everyone: there is no battle going on between Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston. At least, according to Brad Pitt, who defends the mother of children for saying they fell in love on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith – a move that prompted Jen to dub her "uncool" – while still lauding his ex-wife.
“Listen, man, Jen is a sweetheart,” Brad says in a new interview with W magazine. “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.”
And the busy father of six doesn’t shy away from his former wife either, claiming, "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.”
As for the timeline involved in when he and Angie got together, specifically, whether he and Jen were still together, Brad is out to clarify the situation.
“What people don’t understand is that we filmed [Mr. & Mrs. Smith] for a year,” the explains. “We were still filming after Jen 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.”
We’ll take you at your word, Brad!
