The actor has been reflecting on his past since the acrimonious split from the actress, which was reportedly sparked by his alcohol abuse and a drunken argument with son Maddox on a flight to LA. The 53-year-old has been through a stint in rehab, which has led him to reflect on life, and now it seems it’s made him rethink his split from Jennifer Aniston in 2005.
Brad famously left Jennifer for Angelina after the pair met on the set of Mr. And Mrs. Smith in 2004. The couple had been married for five years at the time, together for seven when Brad walked out. Brad has reportedly apologized to actress Jennifer Aniston for being an ‘absentee husband’ and then leaving her for Angelina Jolie. Jolie filed for divorce last September. The Hollywood megastars had been married for two years and were a couple since 2004. They share six children.
According to In Touch magazine, Pitt has been doing some thinking, and it has led him to reach out and say sorry to Aniston. He’s been determined to apologize for everything he put her through, and that’s exactly what he did. It was the most intimate conversation Brad and Jen have ever had,” a source said.
When Pitt apologized, the source says it brought back a lot of that old hurt. “Jen was overcome with emotion. All the hurt feelings and resentment she’d suppressed for years came flooding to the surface, and she broke down in tears.”
Pitt is also said to have admitted that he wasn’t always the best partner, reports mirror.co.uk. “He apologized to Jen for being an absentee husband, for being stoned and bored much of the time. He also made amends for leaving her for Angelina,” the source added.
The split has gone down as one of the most famous in pop culture history, with Jen being forced to live out her divorce in public. Aniston, who is now married to actor Justin Theroux, accepted Pitt’s apology.
