Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have become talk of the town with their picture that is circulating post SAG Awards
Jennifer recently revealed that there were many issues between her and Brad before Angelina even came into the picture. The former couple’s friends and family shared that they had been struggling for about a year because of their busy schedules, which made it impossible for them to make time for each other and maintain intimacy. They added that the two just couldn’t be there for each other. Back in 2004, Jennifer was also filming the end of her most famous TV show, Friends, which had taken a toll on her as a major part of her life that she identified with, was coming to an end. She struggled emotionally and needed the support of her husband, Brad, who at the time was busy filming for Mr and Mrs Smith, and couldn’t make time for her. Jennifer shared that he wasn’t even there for him during filming the last episode of Friends.
While Jennifer needed some care, Brad admitted that he wasn’t in the right state of mind, and was bored with his marriage to the starlet. In an earlier interview with the Parade magazine, he had said, “It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage to Jennifer Aniston had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.” Many fans of Jennifer took these comments as pointing fingers at his former wife, however, the actor was quick to apologise and clarified that he was the one to blame. He added, “It grieves me that this was interpreted this way. Jen is an incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious woman who remains my friend. It is an important relationship I value greatly. The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was becoming dull to myself — and that, I am responsible for.” He continued that there was also a lot of peer pressure from their friends, who wanted them to be the “perfect couple” but behind closed doors, the two were just like any other average couple with their own set of highs and lows.
An insider close to the them couple also told People magazine, “They gradually lost sight of themselves as individuals. And despite their nice lifestyle and having everything they might want, they weren’t happy. They lost a sense of self.” Another friend of Jennifer and Brad shared that as opposed to reports of Jennifer not wanting a child at the time, it was, in fact, Brad who didn’t want to become a parent. In the end, Brad decided to part ways to figure out who he was even though Jennifer insisted on staying married.
