Micheal Douglas Claims Misquoted by GQ!

If you don't remember from a few weeks ago Micheal Douglas decided to judege the celebrity masses including a the following quote about his two fellow celebrity ambassadors for the United Nations;
"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?"

"I didn't say it," he told "Entertainment Tonight." "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."

Micheal said the same thing to "Extra," also noting he had written a letter of apology to the couple.

"I consider him a good friend," said Douglas, who's promoting his movie "The Sentinel." "And she does wonderful work for the United Nations. … 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."

GQ is holding their ground stating the Laskas "spent many hours over the course of four months with Michael Douglas," executive editor Andy Ward tells us. "His comments about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie — along with many other quotes from that long night at a hotel bar in Washington, none of which he is disputing — are in Jeanne Marie's notebook. We stand behind them 100%. For him to suggest we made them up is laughable. Still, we like the guy and hope all this attention will help his movie."
