Brad Talks About Divorce From Jen And More

What a week for interviews! First, Nicole Kidman confesses to a miscarriage and secret engagement and now Brad is talking about Jen! Whatever the press is doing to get this juice keep it up!

On Jesse James:
”I remember making it vividly. For one, Angie (partner Angelina Jolie) was pregnant. It was a very nice time for us. … So personally, it was a magical time.”

”There’s a big lack of understanding of consequence. Especially with the Robert Ford character (played by Casey Affleck). This isn’t so much a Western. It plays more like a psychological study of these guys. I probably just killed ticket sales right there. I’ve never been a good salesman.”

On New Orleans:
”We’ve made our American base there. We have a place in L.A., but it’s become impossible. There are too many paparazzi, too many people outside the gate, too much following, too much sticking cameras in kids’ faces. I want to have some semblance of a real life. We have managed to find that in New Orleans.”

“The people of New Orleans have been failed on the federal level, and the state level, and the local level.”

On his split with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston:
”I don’t know how better to have handled it. My view was, this is no one’s business in the end — at least in matters of the heart. So you need to protect all involved as much as possible. I don’t know if that cooled things off or exacerbated them, but it was a thing I felt justly about at the time. Again, the thing guiding me then was you don’t know how many days you have and you need life to be everything you want it to be. … Jen and I still maintain a deep friendship and have a lot of life together that isn’t erased in any way.”

“The most important thing about that time was for Jen and me to figure out if — how do I put it? — if we didn’t want to go on without any outside influence. Is this where we got off? Have we taken this as far as we wanted to? Those questions had to be answered before an attraction for Angie could be answered.”

On the paparazzi and tabloid obsession with his family:
”It is the defining annoyance of my life. I just think how strange it is for my kids. Mad, Z, Pax — they really believe that every time you go outside there is a herd of people with cameras snapping flashes in your face (who) are going to kind of block your way when you’re trying to get somewhere.”

On being over 40:
”When you turn 40, all of that pressure (to take on the blockbuster role) evaporates. And then you become a father and then … forget about it. It’s not an issue. I’m at a point where I feel like I understand what I’m doing. … As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized the most important thing on a project is the people I’m working with. That’s what I remember most about the films I’ve done.”

”Your face kind of goes. Your body’s not quite working the same. But you earned it. You earned that, things falling apart.”
