Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game
Originally posted 09/20/2011 10:20AM
The night was devoted to unveiling his latest movie, the based-on-fact baseball movie Moneyball, but Brad Pitt still found a moment to clarify comments he made last week regarding his marriage to Jennifer Aniston.
"That was never my intention for it to be spun that way," he said of those who interpreted his remarks to be critical of his former mate. "People read things into it that just weren't there."
At the Oakland Coliseum, where the movie premiered and much of Moneyball takes place, Pitt, 47, said the role of Oakland Athletics manager Billy Beane offered him a unique behind-the-scenes perspective of America's favorite pastime. (The film is based on nonfiction author Michael Lewis's Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game.)
