Brad Pitt gives rare insight into what's next
Brad Pitt has opened up about his high-profile divorce from Angelina Jolie in a candid new interview.
The Oscar-winning actor told GQ magazine that he felt deep turmoil over the split, but believes deep sadness is a vital part of growth.
“I think all our hearts are broken,” Pitt said.
“I always felt very alone in my life, alone growing up as a kid, alone even out here, and it’s really not ’til recently that I have had a greater embrace of my friends and family.”
Pitt and Jolie, 47, ended their 12-year relationship in 2016, prompting a years-long divorce battle which is yet to be finalised, although they were declared legally single in 2019.
The 58-year-old also said he found joy "later in life" after years of "low-grade depression".
“I was always moving with the currents, drifting in a way, and onto the next,” he told the publication.
“I think I spent years with a low-grade depression, and it’s not until coming to terms with that, trying to embrace all sides of self – the beauty and the ugly – that I’ve been able to catch those moments of joy.”
Pitt also revealed that his acting days are numbered, after a decades long career that saw him star in iconic films including Ocean’s Eleven, Fight Club, Inglourious Basterds, and more recently, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
“I consider myself on my last leg,” he said. “This last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?"
