Brad Pitt forced to apologize following disparaging comments about Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt may hold been one of the most sought-after couples back in the day but their relationship ended on extremely sour ties.

And while the two are starting to get cordial already again, reports claim that it took a sincere apology from the Fight Club actor to mend ties with the Friends star.

Following their divorce in 2005, Pitt spoke in ungenerous terms about Aniston in an interview in 2011, while he was in a relationship with Angelina Jolie.

Talking to Parade Magazine, Pitt had said: “I began to get tired of spending my time sitting on the couch, a hand seal, in secret. It was getting pathetic. I think my marriage [to Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it.”

As the words came as a direct hit to Aniston, he later converted to issue an apology to build bridges.

His comments had led to massive outrage amongst fans following which he was forced to issue a statement, clearing the air.

“Jen is an incredibly generous, loving, and hilarious woman and she remains my friend. I didn’t mean to say that Jen was boring, but that I did getting boring for myself, and that I was solely responsible for it.”

The past paramours sent fans in a tizzy after they held a brief reunion backstage this year at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in February.
