Brad Pitt finally opens up about his marriage to Jennifer Aniston, and admits that his life before his relationship with Angelina Jolie started to feel "pathetic".

BRAD Pitt "pretended" his marriage to Jennifer Aniston was "something that it wasn't".

The 'Moneyball' actor - who was married to former 'Friends' star Jennifer from 2000 to 2005 - thinks his life before his relationship with Angelina Jolie started to feel "pathetic" because he spent a lot of time smoking marijuana and "hiding".

He said: "I spent the '90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony. 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.

"I think that my marriage [to Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't."

However, the 47-year-old actor, now lives a much happier life with Angelina and their six children - Maddox, 10, Pax, seven, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

He said: "One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mum. She is such a great mum. Oh man, I'm so happy to have her."

Brad also reveals he has found being a parent easy because he always trusts his instincts.

He added to Parade magazine: "I was surprised at how automatic it is, how much of it is instinctual.

"And now I have a great confidence and trust in those instincts. I mean, one sound at night and you're awake and up because they may need you.

"Or when they start to have a tantrum, you know to divert them from spinning out by helping them focus on something. It just goes on and on.

"I tell them, "You can make a mess, but you've got to clean it up.' "
