May 7, 2022 – Following the announcement of his split from Jolie in 2017, Pitt opened up about his struggles with addiction. “I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something. Something,” the Fight Club star told GQ at the time. While Pitt notes that he quit hard drugs when he became a father, he admitted that alcohol became an increasingly troubling crutch. “Truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good.” At the time of the GQ interview, Pitt was six months sober and keen to reflect on what brought him to what was, by all appearances, his rock bottom (a 2016 incident on an airplane after which child services was called and Jolie filed for divorce).
