Jennifer Aniston doesn’t regret her marriage with Brad Pitt, but she admits that she would have done things differently.
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt married in 2000 and divorced five years later. However, their fans are still hoping that they would get back together. The Morning Show star opened up about her marriage in a previous interview.
Jennifer Aniston no regrets about marriage with Brad Pitt
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were once among the A-list Hollywood couples. Many believed that they were the perfect pair. She was America’s sweetheart while he was the Sexiest Man Alive.
However, their marriage didn’t last long. They separated after Pitt started filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith with Angelina Jolie. According to sources, he changed shortly after meeting Jolie.
Aniston and Pitt have remained friends following their split. In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2005, she said she had no regrets in marrying Pitt, but would have done things differently.
“There’s a lot I would probably do differently,” Aniston confessed.
“I’d take more vacations—getting away from work, enjoying each other in different environments. But there was always something preventing it; either he was working or I was.”
Aniston learns her lesson
Jennifer Aniston acknowledged her mistakes when she was still married to Brad Pitt. According to her, she realized that she should have left a portion of her for herself. She should have not given her all.
“I wouldn’t give over so much of myself, which I did at times”, Aniston said.
“It was that thing about being a nurturer; I love taking care of people, and I definitely put his needs before mine sometimes. It’s seamless; somewhere along the way, you sort of lose yourself. You just don’t know when it happens. It’s such an insidious thing, you don’t really see where it started—and where you ended. There’s no one to blame but yourself.”
Aniston said she had always been like that in relationships even with her mom. She admitted that it was “not the healthiest.” Also, Aniston said she had broken the pattern already and would never let herself down like that again.
“I feel like my sense of self is being strengthened because of it,” she added.

However, when Pitt and Jolie started filming, Aniston realized that he immediately became emotionally unavailable to her.
