Brad takes it back

Brad Pitt is doing damage control after he made some less-than-complimentary remarks to Parade about life with Jennifer Aniston. “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,” Pitt told the magazine. “I think that my marriage [to Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.” But Pitt insists his comments were taken out of context. “It grieves me that this was interpreted this way,” Pitt says in a statement. “Jen is an incredibly giving, loving and hilarious woman who remains my friend. It is an important relationship I value greatly. The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was becoming dull to myself — and that, I am responsible for.”

It’s a boy for January

January Jones has given birth to a healthy baby boy, according to People magazine. Her rep confirms that the “Mad Men” star and her new son, Xander Dolan, are “doing great.” Jones had said during her pregnancy that the baby’s sex would be a surprise. She similarly declined to reveal the identity of Xander’s father.

Bring on the Beckhams

Maybe David and Victoria Beckham aren’t done having kids after all, as the soccer star hinted to Ellen DeGeneres that they’d welcome the idea of another baby. “If we were lucky enough to have another one, it would be great,” he said. “We always spoke about having a big family. We love children. We are very blessed to have four healthy children; so if one comes along, that would be amazing.”

Good luck, Eva?

Ryan Gosling’s rumored girlfriend, Eva Mendes, has a lot to live up to. “I had two of the greatest girlfriends of all time. I haven’t met anybody who could top them,” Gosling says of exes Sandra Bullock and Rachel McAdams, according to Hollyscoop. Plus, any relationship now takes a backseat: “There’s interest, but I’m in a committed relationship with film. I’m giving as much to it as a marriage.”
