Brad Pitt Breaks From Award Season to Talk Marriage, Family, and Smoking Grass

Brad Pitt's baby blues are front and center on the cover of the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter. He just received a best actor Oscar nomination for Moneyball, which is also up for best picture alongside his Tree of Life. First, though, he'll hit the red carpet at this weekend's Screen Actors Guild Awards, where he's in the running for best actor. Brad took a break from award season, which has already garnered him a New York Film Critics Circle statue, to talk to the publication about family, a rough patch in his life, and the real story behind the cane. Here's more from Brad Pitt in The Hollywood Reporter:





  • On smoking weed: "I got really sick of myself at the end of the 1990s: 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. But that feeling of unease was growing and one night I just said, ‘This is a waste.’ I just quit. I stopped grass then — I mean, pretty much — and decided to get off the couch."
  • On marrying Angelina: "We’d actually like to, and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment. I’m not going to go any further, but to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous."
  • On his leg injury: "I was just walking in our backyard, on a hill, carrying my daughter, and I slipped — and it was those parental instincts: me or her. And she’s fine."

all they have to do is get those kids a new set of nunchucks, military assault rifles, throwing stars, poison tipped darts and whatever else they filled the play room with and they will stop asking...

OMG, Joanna, you took the words right out of my mouth! Just get married already or get over it...people will continue to love/hate them regardless of what they do! This media game they play makes them sound just as sincere as the Kardashian's do. EVERYTHING they say always sounds like a lot of fluff and hot air to me.

If they wanted to marry they would. They are so fake all the time. It looks like they are going all out to win something. If they marry, then they will split to get more attention. They are getting too old and worn out to keep playing this game.

Ugh yes please just get married already. It's a little ridiculous that they're not; as famous as they are their one political statement isn't going to be enough to cure all the bigotry in the world.

Ugh what an ass. Just say you want to get married, don't put it on the kids. You are not a hero to the LGBT+ community.
