Angelina Jolie has thrown her ex-husband Brad Pitt under the bus yet again. The Hollywood actress recently admitted that working with Brad was one of the biggest mistakes she’s ever made in her career.
Angelina made it pretty clear that working with Brad Pitt on their critically panned film By The Sea was the biggest mistake she could make as an actress. By The Sea was slammed as one of the worst films of 2015. In the film, a couple tries to repair their marriage while staying at a hotel in France.
The mother-of-six made her comments during a podcast with the Hollywood Reporter’s Award Chatter. According to Angelina, she now admits that making the film with her husband might not have been a good idea. She said during the podcast, “I wanted us to do some serious work together, and I wanted to see him do that kind of work. So I thought that it could be a good way for us to communicate. And I think in some ways it was. And in some ways we learned some things. But there was a heaviness during that situation that carried on.”
Critics compared By The Sea to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s disastrous 2003 film Gigli and Sean Penn and Madonna’s 1986 joint effort Shanghai Surprise. In other words, a lot of people were surprised that Angelina and Brad, who were married at the time, would even consider making a film together knowing all too well that it might turn out to be an embarrassing disaster. Some film critics called it a “self-indulgent vanity project” while others pointed out that Angelina should stick to acting more than directing.
Brad Pitt is yet to respond to Angelina’s comments although it’s doubtful that he will. He doesn’t want to fuel the fire in their never-ending feud. As a matter of act, Brad has been keeping a very low profile lately. This is mostly because he wants to make sure that he gets what he deserves before their divorce is finalized. For Brad, he doesn’t want to say anything that might jeopardize his custody battle or his future with his six children. A lot of people believe that might be the reason why he’s been trying to keep under the radar lately.
