Brad Pitt is finally speaking out following his shocking separation from ex-wife, Angelina Jolie.
Posing for three GQ Style covers, the 53-year-old is finally ready to reveal what led to his divorce, and how he has managed to cope. With a new movie, War Machine, hitting Netflix later this month, it is only fitting that Pitt begin to ease his way back into the spotlight.
Aside from the gorgeous photos taken at different national parks, Pitt offers revealing details of what his days are like now and the struggles he has experienced over the past 6 months.
Giving up alcohol:
I mean, we have a winery. I enjoy wine very, very much, but I just ran it to the ground. I had to step away for a minute. And truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good. Don’t want to live that way anymore.
We’ve been able to work together to sort this out. We’re both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, “No one wins in court – it’s just a matter of who gets hurt worse.” It’s just an investment in vitriolic hatred. And, fortunately my partner in this agrees. It’s just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart.
Becoming a new man:
For me this period has really been about looking my weaknesses and failures and owning my side of the street.
In addition to laying out some of his more heavy feelings, Pitt revealed the little things that have allowed him to get through his days… one of them being music.
I’ve been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean. I find this young man so special. Talk about getting the raw truth. He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special.
