The 56-year-old Hollywood legend abandoned the star of Friends Jen for Angelina Jolie 15 years ago, and a few years later he spoke of his ex and it was not on the happiest notes.
In 2011 Brad spoke to Parade magazine and was so sharp about Jennifer that he felt he had to say sorry for his harsh words when they logged in again.
His comments turned out to be quite hurtful and upset Jennifer at the time, as Brad spilled the beans on how he felt during their wedding.
Brad said, “I spent the 90s trying to hide, trying to get around the cacophony of celebrities.
“I started to get tired of sitting on a sofa, holding a joint, hiding. It started to feel pathetic.
“It became very clear to me that I intended to try to find a film about an interesting life, but I did not live an interesting life myself.
“I think my marriage has something to do with it. Trying to pretend that marriage was something it was not. “

At the time, Brad showed no mercy for his ex-wife because he said he was more than satisfied with his decision to empty her for Angelina Jolie.
He continued at the time, “I am satisfied with making real choices and finding the woman I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much.
“A family is a risky business because the greater the love, the greater the loss.
“This is the compromise. But I’ll take it all. “
Years later, Brad pondered his words and apologized to Jennifer.
Brad said, “I’m sorry it was interpreted that way. Jen is an incredibly generous, loving and hilarious woman who remains my friend.
“It is an important relationship that I greatly appreciate. The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was getting dull for myself and that I am responsible for it. “
According to Entertainment Tonight, a source said that Brad contacted Jen in 2016 to apologize for the interview.
The source said, “Brad is in a place so different from what he was when they were together. Brad is truly an introspective guy who has worked hard on himself.
“He apologized to her for many things that he said were his relationship problems.
“He really owns his mistakes, and it has changed their relationship with each other today. They both have evolved. “
Brad then attended Jen’s 50th birthday party last year, and there was joy when the couple met at the 2020 SAG Awards earlier this year.
