Brad Pitt couldn't help but notice a recent press clipping featuring his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston -- and he was none too pleased, a Pitt pal says in the new Us Weekly.

"Brad thinks she is pathetic," the source tells Us of a recent Aniston interview, adding that the 46-year-old actor was "disgusted" with his former spouse (the pair divorced in 2005).

"Brad feels this is all so desperate," adds the insider. "It was a ploy to get his attention."
