‘I’ve lost my privileges’ – Brad Pitt has quit smoking and drinking since divorcing Angelina Jolie


One of the most famous “It” couples in Hollywood was Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The former couple met while playing the roles of husband and wife in the 2003 film Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Brad Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston (the two later split in 2005), and Jolie was fine as a single mom.

The former couple had both happy and sad moments together. Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on September 20, 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. After his divorce, Pitt quit drinking in 2016 after attending AA meetings for 18 months and embracing the group’s policy of avoiding drugs that were harmful to him.

Brad Pitt’s decision to up smoke during the hectic and anxious months of the COVID-19 epidemic would make sense. However, Brad, 58, revealed in the latest GQ cover story that he had quit smoking during lockdown. After offering GQ’s Ottessa Moshfegh a nicotine mint, Brad shared that he’d quit smoking in recent years after realizing cutting down on cigarettes wasn’t going to work.

“I don’t have the ability to do just one or two a day,” he said. “It’s not in my condition. I’m all in. And I’ll drive into the ground. I lost my privileges.”

This action follows Brad’s vow to quit drinking when his ex-wife Angelina Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016. The Bullet Train actor said he went to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings to overcome his vices.

“I had a really cool men’s group here that was very private and selective, so it was safe. Because I’ve seen things of other people being taped pouring out their guts and it’s just horrifying to me.”

The Hollywood star, meanwhile, only gave one big hint about his planned retirement. The celebrity has been in the entertainment industry for more than three decades and has appeared in a number of cult films. Pitt said in an interview with GQ that he was in the “last semester or trimester‘ of his career.
