Michael Douglas has gone public to defend himself against comments he was credited as making about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s romance in a recent magazine article.

The Basic Instinct star says, “It was a lengthy article. (It) must have been 20 hours of tape recording, so I asked to hear the tape recording and the reporter said, Well, I turned the tape recorder off.’

“I said, ‘Well you had it on for the whole time, so I didn’t say it.'”

Douglas admits that even though the quotes weren’t his, he still wrote an apology to Brad and Angelina.

He adds, “I consider him a good friend and she does wonderful work for the United Nations, which is what I’m also involved in.

“There’s just a lot of pressure on the print media and they get to kind of exploitative quotes to try to attract people for their circulation, so it was unfortunate.”

Michael Douglas has started recording his own interviews because he’s sick of being misquoted in print.

The Basic Instinct star recently blasted GQ magazine after claiming he was misquoted poking fun at Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s romance in a recent article.

And now he’s taking steps to make sure he has evidence to present when he’s misquoted in the future.

He says, “Unfortunately, in all these press roundtables I have now started to have my own tape recorder for everything.

Kim Basinger will not do print. She only trusts what comes out of her mouth, rather than be interpreted. It’s an interesting phenomenon.

“I don’t think it’s the writer’s fault, per se; I think it’s always usually the editor who is creating that. But you’re gonna see more and more people who either are not gonna do print or will bring their own tape recorders with them.”
