Brad Pitt Opens Up About His Divorce And Substance Abuse

When Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, it was the headline that shocked the world.

Pitt has now opened up about what could have been the reason for the divorce.

He told GQ Style in an interview, “I can’t remember a day since I got out of college where I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something.”

“You realize that a lot of it is, um- cigarettes, you know, pacifiers. And I’m running from feelings. I’m really, really happy to be done with all of that. I mean, I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know – things I wasn’t dealing with. I was boozing too much. It’s just become a problem. And I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet.”

“The terrible thing is, I tend to run things into the ground. That’s why I’ve got to make something so calamitous. I’ve got to run it off a cliff. I do it with everything, yeah. I exhaust it, and then I walk away. I’ve always looked at things in seasons, compartmentalized them, I guess, seasons or semesters or tenures,” he also said.

Pitt now says he is 6 months sober and opts fro cranberry juice and fizzy water now.

The actor admitted that “truthfully, I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good.”

Today it’s different, as Pitt revealed, “I’ve got the cleanest urinary tract in all of L.A., I guarantee you.”
Does he have regrets?

“In the end, you find: I am those things I don’t like. That is a part of me. I can’t deny that. I have to accept that. And in fact, I have to embrace that. I need to face that and take care of that. Because by denying it, I deny myself,” he exclaimed.
