In an interview with the New York Times, Brad Pitt opened about his drinking habits and how he managed to get out of most severe pain of his life after his split from Angelina Jolie in the year 2016.
The actor is now being committed to “sober” and has not been in contact with any alcohol for quite a time. “It’s been a year and a half,” he said. Yes, you read it right. Freaking a year and a half away from alcohol (can you do it too?)
“I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privileges,” Brad said.
“The fact is, we all carry pain, grief, and loss,” Pitt, 55, said of his post-breakup emotions. “We spend most of our time hiding it, but it’s there, it’s in you. So you open up those boxes,” he concluded.
When the rumors were bulging ho about the separation of the two if was a challenging time for both of them, according to reports, it was observed that Brad was fighting over some issue. It was not aware whether he was struggling with Angelina, or was he arguing with one of the children.
The former spouses never publicly accepted any of the above rumors. “I had family stuff going on. We’ll leave it at that.” That the only thing Pitt told New York Times about that time in his life at that particular time.
“It was freeing to expose the ugly sides of yourself. There’s great value in that,” Brad finally concluded by saying this. He was in talks with the promotional event of hi shocking movie Ad Astra. Ad Astra hits theaters on September 20.
