Brad Pitt Talks About Jennifer Aniston in Today Show Video

Video: Brad Pitt Calls For a "Statute of Limitations" on Jennifer Aniston Drama

Brad Pitt's Today Show interview with Matt Lauer aired this morning, and in addition to talking about Moneyball, the conversation turned to the Parade Magazine quote drama about his marriage to Jennifer Aniston from last week. Brad once again praised Jennifer saying, "She's good people. She, you know, there should be a statute of limitations on this," and revealed that while she hasn't actually reached out to him about the situation, she's a "seasoned veteran" of all this as well.

Matt tried to read Brad back the quote that got him in trouble but the actor declined saying, "I don't read these things, by choice, I don't. I don't wanna be encumbered by any of that. I know my intentions, and I know what I believe, and I know things get misconstrued. I live outside of that, and it's much healthier." As for a lesson from the experience? "Don't talk. I don't wanna live on guard and I should be more on guard, I guess . . . it's always been a part of the territory . . . it comes up every cycle. I've got a knack for stepping into sh*t. And I do every year or so . . . And it's OK. It's all right." Overall Brad says he was just trying to compliment current partner Angelina Jolie. Brad's movie is out tomorrow and amid all this drama, he's getting early award season buzz for his portrayal of Billy Beane. This weekend we'll see if audiences are excited to see Brad's passion project, Moneyball hit the big screen.

Mr. Brad Pitt you are a loser.Jen is already happy with her life and you just want to promote your movie and dragging jen's name.So people will read your publicity.Sorry hope your movie will flop.

I think that he's kind of a nice guy but not bright at all, 'drug in', that's not a word! It's 'dragged in'. Angie seems a lot smarter, I don't know how she can stand him. The reason he got a free ride is because he stayed with Angelina, it wasn't just a cheating incident so people thought 'well it was meant to be'. He's also a serial monogamous and women prefer stable men like that, not constant players like John Mayer for instance.

I wonder if any of you took the time to read the article in the Parade, or did you just read the little bites posted on the web. Because if you had read the article, you would not make any of these accusations. You rabid fans keep this BS going, the hatred generated on this blog is beyond belief. That is why this crap will never ends. The gossip web sites feed you all like babies and all of you gobble it up, never knowing the truth. Moronic robots, the bunch of you. Even after he told Matt that he did not want to hear it, stupid Matt kept on going. Just like all of you. The truth doesn't matter as long as it sell copies.

Who must you be as people that you so criticize the lives of others. No one knows exactly what Brad Pitt said in this interview. The media, especially relative to celebrities, takes things out of context. He is right to call "End" at this point. Be grateful that there are people who are happy in relationship, and, who do good in the world. I am not a fan of Jennifer Aniston (except when she was on Friends), however, because Brad Pitt does care about her, I would not put her down. ie, we are truly all one. Cooperation + Tolerance = Peace

This just confirms what a bad actor he his. He should be able to dodge questions in interviews, like the seasoned actor he is, and get things back on track. He has some unresolved feelings, and needs to find someone to confide in and move forward.

I wonder why Angie didn't attend his latest important premeire for his MB movie. She was in Toronto post his dumb remarks to Parade. She looks so thin and older since she's with him, he is into this grunge look which does beans for him. Brad's chickens finally have come home to roost. I was always sickened how Jen took all the flack when he got a pass. Pass no more. Thanks Parade.

"JustGossip" is right on! couldn't have said it better myself . he got a seven year free ride, while the women took the flack. He now is getting so much bad press and it's something he's not used to. He was squirming with Matt today! And yes on the Ann Curry! You'd think this man walked on water. He never paid for humilating Jen and now he finally is. I wouldn't waste a dime seeing his new flick....he sure isn't what I used to think he was. And I love is lame excuse for not marrying her! Gays couldn't marry in 2000 when he married Jen, & AJ was married twice, same story. This is BS at it's finest. Obviously he has major reservations about not marrying her. ..Six kids later!

The interviewer never asked him about the marriage. He volunteered this. He should stop blaming the media. Honestly, I think part of the backlash stems from the fact that Brad has never really taken any crap for the horribly embarrassing way he ended his marriage. Marriages end. Can't blame people for that, but he really found the most public, humiliating way possible and then turned his new relationship into a global brand minutes after he left Jen. And for this he took very little crap. Mainly, because his well timed transition to global philanthropist and his love of children brought him the media love. If only he had a litter of puppies with him, good God the women would have swooned. I swear if I see Ann Curry interview him one more time I will shoot my TV. The woman treats him like he's the second coming of Christ. Anyway, the last seven years, Jen and Angie have taken all the heat. It's the great war between the women that never, never ends, while Brad stands in the background smiling away. It's how we are as a society. The women are evil, vicious, desperate, mentally unstable etc. The men are just living their lives. I think what this interview did is open the floodgates. It showed him as the jerk, finally. And I think people are looking back at all of this and thinking, you know this dude got a free ride. And maybe he shouldn't have.

Angelina has always given mad props on Brad for being a good father,he simply wanted to say something nice back,which was misconceived as a dig to the ex-missus.Better brace yourself because he probably have a lot more nice things to say about the love of his life and BTW he look damn good.No I don't think he's a misogamist,save that for his pal George.

Statue of limitations??? For what telling the whole world that your marriage was pretending and it was the reason you were unhappy????? This guy is a jerk. If he was so unhappy why did he stay in the relationshiop until he found someone???? Why not split???? He is complaining now SIX YEARS LATER?! Nobody forces anyone to stay in a marriage then why stay so long and as he said he was in a relationship with Jen for SEVEN years, 41/2 as a married couple. When did he realize he was so unhappy? And after six years of divorce you should leave it alone, the media is not therapy. Maybe Brad needs to get over his own issues and live the past behind.

Statute of limitations. Brad YOU are the one who brought up your marriage SEVEN YEARS AFTER it ended. Maybe it's time to take your own advice. Also, I think there should be a statute of limitations on how often you can exploit your own children to sell a movie ticket.

yeah Brad , you tell them. People need to just get a grip and leave these people alone. He and Angie are happy, have a great family, deal with it.
