Although Pitt doesn't reference his ex-wife directly, in the new issue of Esquire, the 49-year-old actor says, "For a long time I thought I did too much damage — drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. ... But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change. ... This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany." Pitt and Aniston, who started dating in 1998, divorced in 2005 after five years of marriage.
Pitt has spoken out about his first marriage before. In 2011, Pitt told Parade, "I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic . . . I think my marriage had something to do with it; trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't."
Soon after the divorce, Pitt revealed he was dating his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie. The couple, who has been engaged since last year, has six children.
