Brad Pitt: I Felt Safe at Alcoholics Anonymous | Entertainment News

Brad Pitt felt “safe” at Alcoholics Anonymous.

The 58-year-old actor decided to get sober after his split from Angelina Jolie in 2016, and Brad is happy to have found a “really private and selective” group of people who wouldn’t betray his trust.

The Hollywood star – whose divorce was finalized in 2019 – shared: “I had a really cool bunch of guys here who were really private and selective so it was safe because I had seen some really cool stuff. ‘other people, like Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was recorded as they were emptying their guts, and that’s just excruciating to me.”

Brad remains on a mission to improve his health, after successfully kicking his smoking habit amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ‘Moneyball’ star initially tried to limit the amount he smoked – but eventually decided to commit wholeheartedly to his ambition.

He told the July/August issue of British magazine GQ: “I don’t have the ability to do just one or two a day. It’s not in my makeup. I’m all in. And I’m going drive into the ground. I lost my privileges.

Brad has also grown closer to his friends and family in recent years.

The actor is now committed to forging more meaningful connections, having felt “very alone” for much of his life.

Speaking at his home in Hollywood Hills, Brad said: “I’ve always felt very lonely in my life, lonely growing up as a kid, lonely even here, and it’s only really recently that I’ve got a bigger hug from my friends and family.

“What is that line, it was Rilke or Einstein, believe it or not, but it was something about when you can walk with paradox, when you carry real pain and real joy simultaneously, it is maturity, it is growth.”

The July/August issue of UK GQ is available for digital download and on newsstands June 28. (
