Brad Pitt Has Revealed All About His Split
Brad Pitt has compared his split from Angelina to ‘ a death’ and has admitted he is an emotional ‘retard’ whose heavy drinking ruined his marriage.
Jolie left the word stunned in September when she filed for divorce following an alleged altercation on a private jet between the actor and their 15-year-old son, Maddox.
In his first interview since the split, Pitt has revealed he is now tee-total, is in therapy and his family has been ‘ripped apart’, conceding 'I hit the lottery and I still would waste my time on those hollow pursuits.'
He told GQ Style magazine that he believes the split was ‘self-inflicted’ and when asked if the last few months felt like he was grieving, he said ‘Yeah’.
On his drinking, Pitt says 'Truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his vodka. I was a professional. I was good.
'I was boozing too much. It just becomes a problem. And I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got my feelings at my fingertips again.
'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.
'But me, personally, I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something.
'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.'
His boozing has now been replacing with therapy, with Pitt saying He has now replaced boozing with therapy, adding: 'You know, I just started therapy. I love it. I love it. I went through two therapists to get the right one.'
As for his new tipple now he his drink free? 'Cranberry juice and fizzy water. I've got the cleanest urinary tract in all of LA.'
