Brad Pitt has released a statement to clarify remarks he made about his marriage to Jennifer Aniston.
In a recent interview with Parade magazine, the 47-year-old appeared to compare his current relationship with Angelina Jolie to the years he spent married to the blonde actress.
When the interview was interpreted as being critical of his ex-wife, he felt compelled to speak out and explain his comments.
"It grieves me the way this was interpreted," he has said.
"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."
In his original comments, Brad had said he started to "feel pathetic" during his marriage, adding: "I wasn't living an interesting life.
"I think my marriage had something to do with it," he said.
"Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't."
