Brad Pitt Talks about Alcoholism, Forgiveness, Judgemental People and Crying



In a conversation with Anthony Hopkins for Interview magazine published on Monday, Pitt reflected on his past mistakes during his battle with alcoholism. Basically, he forgives himself.

Pitt said in part: "I’m realizing as a real act of forgiveness for myself for all the choices that I’ve made that I’m not proud of, that I value those missteps, because they led to some wisdom, which led to something else."

He's also chosen not to dwell on the past but the future. And he thinks everyone is super judgemental: "I think we’re living in a time where we’re extremely judgmental and quick to treat people as disposable. We’ve always placed great importance on the mistake...We’re all going to make mistakes. But what is that next step? We don’t, as a culture, seem to stick around to see what that person’s next step is. And that’s the part I find so much more invigorating and interesting."

Pitt has also become a crier, saying: "I am quite famously a ‘not-crier.’ I hadn’t cried in, like, 20 years, and now I find myself, at this latter stage, much more moved — moved by my kids, moved by friends, moved by the news. Just moved."
