Brad Pitt revealed that he used to smoke marijuana frequently while he battled depression.
“I got really sick of myself at the end of the 1990s,” he tells the Hollywood Reporter. “I was hiding out from the celebrity thing, I was smoking way too much dope, I was sitting on the couch and just turning into a doughnut and I really got irritated with myself.”
Pitt mentioned that his depression is just a thing in the past. “It’s like I had a semester of depression, I haven’t felt like that in this decade.”
Pitt says that he felt horrible back then, which was around the time he was married to actress Jennifer Aniston.
Things have turned for the actor in a major way though. He now has six kids with his partner Angelina Jolie. Pitt has expressed numerous times that his family makes him feel happy every day.
Another thing that should cheer the Hollywood star up is his two recent Oscar nominations. He was nominated for Best Picture Oscars this year for “Moneyball” and “The Tree of Life.” In addition, Pitt is also nominated for Best Actor for “Moneyball.”
