In his first interview since separating from Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt spoke at length about how he is adjusting to a new life and coping with being away from his kids.
GQ Style interviewed the 53-year-old actor by sending him ‘tumbling across’ three national parks, taking several photographs, and even putting together a music video.
Pitt spoke about his boozing, and the cleanse - both mental and physical - he has been putting himself through in the last six months.
When asked about pain, and how he used to play emotionally distraught characters, Pitt responded by saying he’s “done playing those.”
“I just got R&B for the first time. R&B comes from great pain, but it’s a celebration. To me, it’s embracing what’s left,” he said.
Prodded further about what he’s been listening to for the pain, he said, “I’ve been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean. I find this young man so special. Talk about getting to the raw truth. He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one. And of great irony to me: Marvin Gaye’s Here, My Dear (Gaye’s touchstone album about divorce). And that kind of sent me down a road.”
The road he speaks of is the road to recovery he’s on after going through two therapists to find the right one.
