Michael Douglas denies comment about Brad and Angelina
by auditioning CBB contributor Kristin
In the April issue of GQ, Michael Douglas was quoted as saying, "I don’t know about Brad Pitt, leaving that beautiful wife to go hold orphans for Angelina. I mean, how long is that going to last?" Daily Record News reported that a source close to Pitt commented on Michael’s supposed remarks. The source said, "Brad is livid. He feels it is nobody else’s business and is particularly angry as Angelina is heavily pregnant. And for Douglas to then make fun of Angelina’s two children is beneath contempt."
Michael wrote an apology to the Jolie/Pitt family, even though he denies the quote. He told EXTRA, "I consider him a good friend." Douglas says, “and she does wonderful work for the United Nations, which is what I’m also involved in…There’s just a lot of pressure on the print media and they get to kind of exploitative quotes to try to attract people for their circulation, so it was unfortunate."
No word on what Brad and Angelina thought of the apologetic letter.
