Brad Pitt Opens Up About Drug Abuse

Brad Pitt recently opened up to Esquire magazine regarding his prior drug use.  He told the magazine that during his marriage to Jennifer Aniston, he had an epiphany.  However, these days Brad it straight and sober and is more known now for being a great actor and a dad.  He admits that if he had continued down the road he was on 10 years ago, he may not have been the man he is today.

Brad says there was a time some years ago that he was scared that is party hard lifestyle and drug abuse had ruined him for years to come.  He states, “For a long time I thought I did too much damage—drug damage.  I was a bit of a drifter.  A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things.”

He says the problem is that he was searching for inspiration in the wrong spots.  He spent years goofing off until he realized that he was becoming burnt out and wasting away opportunities.  He said that about 10 years ago when he was still in his marriage to Jennifer Aniston, he made a real effort to change his life for the better.

He made the change in 2005 when he got the lead role in the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith, opposite Angelina Jolie.  He soon divorced Aniston and started a romance with Jolie.  Today, Brad and Angelina have six kids together and still remain together.
