an­gelina: ‘Brad, im so em­bar­rassed’

They were de­ter­mined to ‘work to­gether’ but Brad’s in­ti­mate new in­ter­view has sparked an­other dis­agree­ment…

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Cur­rently in the depths of ne­go­ti­at­ing their hugely com­pli­cated di­vorce pro­ceed­ings, exes of seven months An­gelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are once again at log­ger­heads af­ter Brad spoke out last week in a can­did new in­ter­view.

It seemed the pair had fi­nally set aside their dif­fer­ences af­ter Brad de­clared dur­ing the in­ter­view that he and Ange, 41, were ‘work­ing to­gether to sort this out’.

But, ac­cord­ing to a close friend speak­ing ex­clu­sively to Look, Ange – who was aware of the in­ter­view – had no idea of the depth of de­tail Brad would go into about their mar­riage, his al­leged strug­gles with al­co­hol and the kids.

‘I can’t re­mem­ber a day since I got out of col­lege when I wasn’t booz­ing or had a spliff, or some­thing,’ said Brad. ‘i hit the lottery and I still would waste my time on those hol­low pur­suits.’

Speak­ing about the di­vorce and its im­pact on the chil­dren, Brad added: ‘For me, this pe­riod has re­ally been about look­ing at my weak­nesses and fail­ures, and own­ing my side of the street.’

Ac­cord­ing to our source, Ange isn’t happy. While she has also spo­ken out about the di­vorce in two tele­vi­sion in­ter­views ear­lier this year, she’s said to have made a con­scious ef­fort to hold back on the in­ti­mate de­tails sur­round­ing the fam­ily, some­thing Ange re­port­edly be­lieves Brad should have also done.

When asked about the di­vorce at the time, Ange said: ‘I don’t want to say very much… only that it was a very dif­fi­cult time and we are a fam­ily and we will al­ways be a fam­ily.’

‘This in­ter­view has caught An­gelina to­tally off-guard,’ an in­sider tells Look. ‘She knew he was sit­ting down with GQ, but never thought for a sec­ond he’d be so can­did and tell the world such in­ti­mate de­tails of their fam­ily. She’s an in­cred­i­bly pri­vate per­son.’

The in­ter­view comes af­ter news emerged that Brad, 53, was plan­ning to sell the fam­ily’s home in Los Feliz, Cal­i­for­nia (de­spite the fact Ange is mov­ing into a new house just min­utes away).

Dur­ing his re­cent in­ter­view, Brad ref­er­enced the fam­ily’s liv­ing sit­u­a­tion and ad­mit­ted to stay­ing at a pal’s house fol­low­ing the split, as it was far too painful to re­main in the fam­ily home.

‘It was too sad to be here at first, so I went and stayed on a friend’s floor, a lit­tle bun­ga­low in Santa Mon­ica,’ re­vealed Brad. ‘I crashed over here a lit­tle bit, my friend [di­rec­tor David] Fincher lives right here. He’s al­ways go­ing to have an open door for me, and I was do­ing a lot of stuff on the West­side, so I stayed at my friend’s house on the floor for a month and a half.’

As Brad and An­gelina’s split turned nasty (Ange asked for pri­mary cus­tody of the chil­dren and said the rea­son was for ‘the health of her fam­ily’) nei­ther were said to be on speak­ing terms. How­ever, fol­low­ing Brad’s stand­ing ova­tion at Jan­uary’s Golden Globes, An­gelina ap­par­ently felt some re­gret over the way she’d han­dled the split, and sources re­vealed to Look that, as of the last month, the exes were on speak­ing terms and fi­nally ‘mak­ing ground’ with their di­vorce. ‘They were mak­ing progress,’ says our source. ‘She’s glad he’s fac­ing his de­mons, but this has em­bar­rassed her.’
