Brad Pitt Says His "Boozing" Was Behind His Divorce From Angelina Jolie
Now, in his first interview since the controversial split, Brad is opening up about his marriage, and is very keen to set the record straight.
Speaking to GQ, Brad said the divorce was "self-inflicted," due to a drinking problem that he is now in therapy for.
"I hit the lottery and I would still waste my tim on those hollow pursuits," he said.
"I mean, we have a winery. I enjoy wine very, very much, but I just ran it to the ground. I had to step away for a minute."
"And truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional...I mean I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know - things I wasn't delaing with. I was boozing too much. It's just become a problem."
Despite the drama surrounding his split from Angelina, Brad admits the two have been able to find common ground.
"I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called. And you know, after that, we've 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 matterof 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."
"I just refuse. And fortunately my partner in this agrees. It's just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart."
Brad also said his priority is now his children.
What an emotional rollercoaster...
