Jen’s still a “sweetheart” in Brad’s eyes

January 7, 2009

(Writing and reporting by Alex Dobuzinskis) 

For years,  the media has seized on the slightestUSA/ signs of a feud between actresses Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie over their man-in-common, Brad Pitt.

But in an interview with W magazine released online on Wednesday, Pitt tried to put all that to rest. Pitt addressed a comment Aniston made in December, saying that Jolie was “really uncool” for talking about how her romance with Pitt blossomed on the set of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” in 2005 – when Pitt and Aniston were still married.

“Listen, man, Jen is a sweetheart,” Pitt said. “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” 
    
Pitt also told W that filming “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” took a year.
    
“We were still filming after Jen and I split up,” he said. “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.”
    
The interview with Pitt appears in the February issue of W.
