Brad Pitt opens up about his path to self improvement, Drake has more baby rumor drama, and lots more in today’s Dirty Laundry.
Brad Pitt is opening up about the steps he’s taken to improve himself after his split from Angelina Jolie. He tells GQ Style that he’s since stopped drinking and started therapy. Pitt tells the magazine, “I was boozing too much… it’s just become a problem. And I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got feelings in my fingertips again.” It’s unclear whether or not alcohol played a role in that alleged incident aboard a private plane that led to his divorce. But Pitt tells the magazine, “Truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good… Don’t want to live that way anymore.” Pitt also admits he’s been working on his own shortcomings, including his unhealthy need to wallow on every injustice and let his insecurities bog him down. Pitt tells GQ, “And this is coming from a guy who won the lottery, I’m well aware of that. I hit the lottery, and would still waste my time on those hollow pursuits. I’m personally very retarded when it comes to taking inventory of my emotions. I’m much better at covering up,” he said. “I grew up with a Father-knows-best/war mentality — the father is all-powerful, super strong — instead of really knowing the man and his own self-doubt and struggles.” He’s learning to open up about his feelings.
