Brad Pitt is opening up to GQ Magazine for his first interview after his divorce from Angelina Jolie. The split between this iconic couple really shocked the world, and left so many wondering what went wrong. After a sea of rumors and whispers about the cause of their split, Brad is finally stepping forward and telling his truth.
In the intimate interview, Brad admits that he has had substance abuse problems since college, and he never really dealt with them. As his life and career blew up he became an alcoholic, and blames his alcoholism for his split from Angelina. When talking to GQ he had this to say:
"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. Something. And 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."
Wow. I knew this were bad towards the end for these two, but I didn't realize just how dark it was. Just goes to show that people can be struggling and pass through the public without anyone catching on. Well I'm glad Brad seems to be getting the help he needs and cleaning up his act, hopefully one day his relationship with his ex wife and kids can be healed too. Sending good thoughts his way and to Angelina and the kids for the hard times they went through as well. You can read the full interview for GQ Magazine HERE.
