Brad Pitt Spent a Year and a Half in AA

Brad Pitt Spent a Year and a Half in AA”

Speaking with The New York Times, the 55-year-old actor revealed he entered Alcoholics Anonymous after Jolie filed for divorce three years ago.

The recently single movie star, whose breakup with Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie has made headlines for years now, spoke about the part of himself that "is weak and goes through self-doubts" as well as learning to "identify and accept those things".

In 2017, Pitt was cast in the movie Ad Astra.

Brad Pitt opened up about his personal life following his highly publicized divorce from Angelina Jolie.

Brad Pitt gave us a memorable onscreen presence in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and one of the most talented stars in Hollywood is opening up about his life experiences that taught him to be better at his craft. "During the most challenging time in Brad's life, he is happy and proud that he has been able to maintain his good health and sobriety".

Rumor has it it was a fight about Pitt's drinking that precipitated the end of his marriage to Jolie. "You had all these men sitting around being open and honest in a way I have never heard".

He has opened up about how he appreciated the fact he could expose his "ugly sides" to the other members of the all-male meetings. "There's great value in that", said the actor.

"He definitely used the stimuli from his life", Gray said.

"In the '90s, all that attention really threw me".

Despite all the fame surrounding him, Pitt says he doesn't let other people's expectations get to him. "I really became a bit of a hermit and just bonged myself into oblivion." said the actor.

Earlier Pitt's last starring role came in 2017 as the lead in David Michôd's "War Machine", the Netflix release, which wasn't received well by the critics and audiences.

"I can't remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn't boozing or had a spliff, or something", he said at the time.

But as far any future acting gigs are concerned, there may not be many leading roles in Pitt's future, as he revealed his priorities and interests are changing, describing acting as "a younger man's game". "Now, I didn't get personal with him about it at all - I don't think it's my business, or even my job - but he investigated the essence of the character through himself", Gray said.
