Brad Pitt insists he has no malice toward former wife Jennifer Ansiton, despite her negative comments about his current partner, Angelina Jolie, and how "uncool" it was for her to date him while they were still married.
The 45 year-old Pitt says in the issue of W magazine which goes on sale January 20, "Listen, man, Jen is a sweetheart. I think she got dragged into that one, and then there's a second round to all of that Angie versus Jen. It's so created.
"We still check in with each other," he goes on. "She was a big part of my life, and me hers."
He says of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, where he and Jolie met and canoodled, "What people don't understand is that we filmed for a year. We were still filming after Jen and I split up. Even then it doesn't mean that there was some kind of dastardly affair. There wasn't. I'm very proud of the way that it was handled. It was respectful."
Pitt insists that he wants to tie the knot with Angie, but that they won't until everyone is allowed the right to marry.
