Brad Pitt tells GQ magazine that his drinking put a strain on his marriage to Angelina Jolie. “I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing. 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. 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. I think that’s part of the human challenge: You either deny them all of your life or you answer them and evolve. Truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good.” Now he replaces alcohol with “cranberry juice and fizzy water. just started therapy. I love it, I love it. I went through two therapists to get to the right one.”
Brad Pitt tells GQ magazine that he does not want to hate Angelina Jolie. “I see it happen to friends — I see where the one spouse literally can’t tell their own part in it, and it’s still competing with the other in some way and wants to destroy them, and needs vindication by destruction, and just wasting years on that hatred. I don’t want to live that way.”
He adds; “We’ve [he and Jolie] been able to work together to sort this out. We’re both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, ‘No one wins in court — it’s just a matter of who gets hurt worse.’ And it seems to be true, you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you’re right and why they’re wrong, and it’s just an investment in vitriolic hatred.”
