Brad Pitt opens up about sobriety and a strange social issue

Brad Pitt has prioritized his health since his divorce from Angelina Jolie in 2016, cutting out many bad influences to improve his life, according to a GQ interview published Wednesday.

During the interview, Pitt reportedly indulged in a nicotine mint and explained that he’s quit smoking during the pandemic — one of many changes he’s made in recent years. Pitt gave fans a glimpse of his personality, revealing that he can’t just cut down on cigarettes, he needs to give them up altogether.

“I don’t have the ability to just do one or two a day,” Pitt told GQ. “It’s not in my condition. I’m all in. And I’ll drive into the ground. I lost my privileges.”

According to GQ, he also said he sought help to get sober. Pitt reportedly admitted to spending a year and a half with Alcoholics Anonymous and described his journey to sobriety.

“I had a really cool men’s group here that was very private and selective, so it was safe,” Pitt said, further admitting that the big step in the forward direction wasn’t without risk, the outlet reported.

“Because I’ve seen things of other people being taped pouring out their guts and I just think that’s awful,” Pitt told GQ.

He reportedly described a variety of ways he used vices throughout his life and admitted that he was unable to continue that lifestyle without suffering the negative aspects that came with it. He fondly recalled soothing moments smoking a cigarette “with coffee in the morning — just delicious,” according to GQ.

He went on to make a confession about his current capacity for the vices he had used in the past. “I’m at that age where nothing good will come of it,” Pitt said.(RELATED: Biden Administration plans to remove most nicotine from cigarettes)

During the interview, Pitt also delved deep into a unique social issue he’s struggled with for years. The actor explained that he has a hard time remembering and recognizing new faces, and spoke about how incredibly difficult that can be in social situations, especially at parties, according to GQ.

He has stated that he fears that people will perceive him negatively and see him as self-centered, when in fact, according to GQ, such situations make him ashamed. Although he hasn’t been officially diagnosed, Pitt said he believes he suffers from prosopagnosia, a condition also known as face blindness, the outlet reported.
