(6) years after breaking up with Jennifer Aniston, (47) year old Pitt still has salt to throw on their (4) year marriage.

“I wasn’t living an interesting life.”-Brad Pitt, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The king of the A-list opens up about his pursuit of happiness — razzing ex Jennifer Aniston — in the process in this weekend’s edition of Parade magazine.

“I spent the ’90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony,” Pitt tells Parade. “I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic.

“It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself,” Pitt said of the decade, in which he drew moviegoers to theaters with films such as Se7en, Seven Years in Tibet, Meet Joe Black and Fight Club.

And then Brad dropped the bomb…

“I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”

Ouch. (Brad famously left Aniston in 2005 after four years of marriage to be with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star, and current partner, Angelina Jolie

“I’m satisfied with making true choices and finding the woman I love, Angie, and building a family that I love so much. A family is a risky venture, because the greater the love, the greater the loss. … That’s the trade-off. But I’ll take it all. One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom,” he tells Parade. “She is such a great mom. Oh, man, I’m so happy to have her.”

Is honestly always the best policy, and if so, why be so candid about it now?
