In an interview with GQ, Michael Douglas was quoted as saying, “I don’t know about Brad Pitt, leaving that beautiful woman [Jennifer Aniston] to go hold orphans for Angelina. I mean how long is that going to last?” But now Michael Douglas is claiming the GQ writer made up the quote and that he never said those things. He tells Entertainment Tonight:
“I didn’t say it. I spent a number of hours in that interview, a lot of it on tape and when I asked the reporter to play back the tape for me, I was told the tape was turned off, and it was something that was written down, and I just don’t buy that.”
GQ is sticking to their story and say they’ve got a notebook filled with quotes from the interview to prove it. Besides, if they were going to make stuff up wouldn’t they go with something a little more entertaining? Like him calling Brad Pitt a young whippersnapper and then going off on a tanget about how in his day you could buy a hot dog for a nickel, and then fall asleep before he finished the interview.
