Jennifer Aniston opens up about Brad Pitt; says Jolie did nothing wrong

By Staff/Bang

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were divorced in 2005. Since then the speculations about factors leading to their separation never stopped.

Many blamed Pitt's present wife Angelina Jolie for the divorce.

On Wednesday Jennifer Aniston touched on the subject in the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

The 45-year-old Cake actress said, 'Nobody did anything wrong. But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other. You know what I mean? It was just like, sometimes things [happen]."

Aniston has dismissed rumours her ex-husband's close friendship with Angelina Jolie led to their divorce, and insists "nobody did anything wrong."

Discussing their split, she said, "If the world only could just stop with the stupid, soap-opera bulls***. There's no story. I mean, at this point it's starting to become... please, give more credit to these human beings."


The soap opera she is referring to is how Brad started seeing Angelina Jolie, who he met on the set of 2005's Mr And Mrs Smith, after his split from Jennifer. The two wed in the summer of 2014 in the south of France and have six children together (three of whom are adopted).

The 'Cake' star also claims she is still on good terms with Brad, 51, who now has six children with Angelina.

She told The Hollywood Reporter: "We're not in daily communication. But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other."

This follows what Jennifer told Entertainment Tonight last week: 'I think it's time people stop with that petty B.S. and just start celebrating great work and stop with the petty kind of silliness. It's just tiresome and old. It's like an old leather shoe. Let's buy a new pair of shiny shoes.'


The Emmy winner also said that Jolie's directorial work on Unbroken was 'so beautiful and wonderful' and added that she 'did such a gorgeous job.'

This more relaxed attitude toward her former foes comes as a bit of a surprise. After all, in 2008 she told Vogue that she thought Jolie's comments about falling for Brad on the set of Mr And Mrs Smith were 'uncool.'

The former 'Friends' star, who has been engaged to Justin Theroux since August 2012, has learned a lot since her marriage ended 10 years ago.

She said: "I always thought, if you're angry you just don't say anything. I would come out passive.

"I used to loathe confrontation. Loathe it. It was absolute. I understood anger, but I didn't know that you should express it. Which has been something that I've really tried to work on."

Jennifer also says she is a "control freak," but credits Justin for helping her to relax.

She said: "He's the easiest guy to hang around.

"I like to be in charge of everything. My life was so out of control growing up. It's very important today for it to be in control."
