Angelina Jolie Unloads About Brad Pitt In New Interview

AsAngelina Jolie’sheated custody battle withBrad Pittrages on, sheisn’t shying away from talking about him to the press anymore. In a new interview with “The Guardian,” Jolie unloads on Pitt, saying she feared for her “whole family’s” safety while they were married.

Rather than five years, Jolie says the divorce has been impending for “the last decade.” As Pitt is hit with child abuse allegations, Jolie notes that she doesn’t make big decisions like divorce lightly. As in, “it took a lot” for her to consider “separating from the father of my children.” 

While there’s “a lot [she] can’t say,” Jolie remembers one spat she got into with Pitt while they were married. Jolie stopped working with disgraced producerHarvey Weinsteinafter he allegedly tried to assault her when she was working on the film “Playing By Heart.” But Pitt still chose to, forQuentin Tarantino’s2009 movie “Inglorious Basterds” – and Jolie says they fought about it.

  • About that Weinstein story…Weinstein calls it “clickbait publicity” in astatement to “TMZ,”saying there was “never an assault or attempted assault.” “You’re Angelina Jolie, every man and female in the world, I’m sure, shows interest in you. Is the whole world assaulting you?” he adds. “It’s very clear to me that this is for more sales on Angie’s BOOK.”
