September 22, 2011 – After Brad Pitt‘s Parade magazine comments about Jennifer Aniston exploded last week, the Moneyball star now says she’s a dear friend of his. However, Jennifer’s camp claims the two don’t even speak.
Brad, 47, has been trying to clarify his words when he told Parade that while his marriage with Angelina Joile is wonderful, he said he had to struggle with “pretending” when he was married to Jennifer, 42.

When those comments began a media frenzy, Brad has been on an apology spree, praising Jennifer every chance he gets. While on The Today Show, Brad tried once again to explain himself, adding he’s upset that every time he says something about Angelina, Jennifer has to be dragged in as well.
“I don’t know what was pieced together,” Brad told Matt Lauer, then added “I don’t want them to say anything bad like that about Jen. She’s a dear friend of mine.”
However, Brad admits that he hasn’t talked to Jennifer since this all started, but says “she’s a veteran and she knows,” and also called her a “valuable person.”

Meanwhile, an insider for Jennifer told Us Weekly that she doesn’t talk to Brad at all, claiming that “she will always think of him as a jerk… She’s 100 percent not speaking to him.”
The insider also said that Brad can apologize all he wants, but he and Jennifer will never share the same space together again.
