In her first interview since her split from Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Leslie Bennetts that when her marriage broke up, "the world was shocked and I was shocked." But her feelings for her ex-husband remain. "I love Brad; I really love him. I will love him for the rest of my life," she says. "He's a fantastic man. I don't regret any of it, and I'm not going to beat myself up about it. We spent seven very intense years together … a beautiful, complicated relationship. The sad thing, for me, is the way it's been reduced to a Hollywood cliché—or maybe it's just a human cliché. I have a lot of compassion for everyone going through this … I really do hope that someday we can be friends again." Although Aniston is handling herself and the divorce very well, Bennetts reports that she does not downplay the difficulties. Says Aniston, "Am I lonely? Yes. Am I upset? Yes. Am I confused? Yes. Do I have my days when I've thrown a little pity party for myself? Absolutely. But I'm also doing really well."
