Brad Pitt Reveals the Big Life Change He Made After Divorcing Angelina Jolie

After years of uproar, the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie saga has finally calmed down. Pitt and Jolie met in 2004 on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”, which was problematic because at the time, Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston. Still, they got together and stayed together for 12 years. As a couple, the two traveled the world for Jolie’s work as a human rights ambassador and adopted three children. They also had three biological children, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne.

Things took a sharp turn in 2016 when the FBI was called in to investigate an alleged domestic dispute between Pitt and his eldest son Maddox on a private jet. According to sources, Pitt and Jolie were fighting during the final leg of a long journey home to LA, prompting Maddox to intervene, per We Weekly† Since the incident took place in the air, it fell under the jurisdiction of the FBI, which made it huge news. Jolie filed for divorce shortly afterwards.

What followed was a protracted custody battle, which continues to this day. While battling his ex in court, Pitt has turned some of his attention back to himself and is committed to getting his life back on track.

Brad Pitt needed a change

After a controversial divorce, Brad Pitt does his best to return to the healthiest version of himself. For the Academy Award winner, that means facing his addictive habits. During a new interview with GQPitt explained that he began attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings shortly after he split from Angelina Jolie in 2016. “I had a really cool men’s group here that was very private and selective, so it was safe,” he said. For the record, Pitt also quit smoking — something he’d done all his adult life — and replaced it with nicotine gum. “I don’t have the ability to do just one or two” [cigarettes] one day,” he said. “It’s not in my makeup. I participate.”

However, Pitts’ journey was about much more than addiction. In the years since his divorce, he has relentlessly scrutinized his inner life. “I think I spent years in mild depression, and it wasn’t until I came to terms with it and tried to embrace all sides of myself – the beauty and the ugly – that I was able to capture those moments of joy, ‘ explained Pit.

This new stoic attitude may come in handy, as Pitt’s battle for custody with Jolie is far from over. “It’s very clear to him that Angie has gone out of her way to slow down and slow down the process,” a source said We Weekly† “Month after month goes by with one bit of bureaucracy after another, endless hoops jumping and bickering between their lawyers with no solution.”
