Brad Pitt talks rebuilding his life after his split from Angelina Jolie
Brad Pitt posed for three GQ Style covers, in his first photo shoot since his split from Angelina Jolie.
The 53-year-old actor looked a changed man on the covers of the mens fashion magazine and opened up about life since that shocking separation last year.
“I was boozing too much,” he told GQ Style.
“It’s just become a problem. And I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got my feelings in my fingertips again.”
News of Brad and Angelina’s split shocked the world last September, a decision Brad says was completely “self-inflicted”.
Allegations then emerged that the rift was due to an alcohol-fueled incident that happened on a private jet between Brad and the couple’s eldest son, Maddox.
The dad-of-six says he now understands the meaning of “if you love someone, set them free” after the bitter split from his ex-wife.
“Now I know what it means, by feeling it.
“It means to love without ownership. It means expecting nothing in return. It doesn’t mean f**k all to me until, you know. Until you live it.”
Brad also went on to discuss his changed approach to life as a father to he and Angelina’s six children.
The actor says therapy has helped him learn to be attentive, and listen to them closer.
“When I get in that busy work mode, I’m not hearing. I want to be better at that. I gotta be more. I gotta be more, for them. I have to show them. And I haven’t been great at it.”
