The Hollywood actor Brad Pitt divorced his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston in 2005 after four and a half years of marriage but still have a very “deep friendship” with her. The Hollywood superstar told America’s V magazine that he still maintains a deep friendship with ‘Friends’ beauty Jennifer Aniston.

He said: “Jen and I still maintain a deep friendship and have a lot of life together that isn’t erased in any way.”

The 43-year-old star added: “I don’t know how better to have handled it. My view was, this is no one’s business in the end – at least in matters of the heart. So you need to protect all involved as much as possible. I don’t know if that cooled things off or exacerbated them, but it was a thing I felt justly about at the time. Again, the thing guiding me then was you don’t know how many days you have and you need life to be everything you want it to be.”

“The most important thing about that time was for Jen and me to figure out if – how do I put it? – if we didn’t want to go on without any outside influence. Is this where we got off? Have we taken this as far as we wanted to go? Those questions had to be answered before an attraction to Angie could be answered,” Brad said.

Brad Pitt is now living with his companion Angelina Jolie and their four children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara and Shiloh.
