Brad Pitt Promotes The Tree of Life

Brad Talks Religion at His The Tree of Life Press Conference — Interesting or Off Topic?

Brad Pitt has had a busy day between his The Tree of Life premiere with Angelina Jolie and his early morning photocall alongside costar Jessica Chastain. In between the events, Brad opened up about the Terrence Malick-directed movie at a press conference. He touched on the film's theme of religious predestination, revealing a bit about his past.

Brad Pitt told reporters, "I got brought up being told things were God's way, and when things didn't work out it was called God's plan. I've got my issues with it. Don't get me started. I found it very stifling." Tackling religion could be a risky thing to do before the world's media, but Brad fans rarely get to hear him speak about his childhood. So, tell us — do you think Brad's comments are interesting or off topic?

Hes said the same thing before, its not an act. However, I think its a bad move considering there are many, many Christians who are furious with him now.

I don't know...the cynical part of me thinks he just said that to get more press. But then I agree with #2 and #5 he did just answer the question he was asked, so thats fair enough!

I don't see anything wrong with what he said. He's not pushing his beliefs unto people he just answered a question.
