Brad Pitt candidly reflected on his life after split from actor Angelina Jolie in 2016. Speaking to his Meet Joe Black co-star Sir Anthony Hopkins, Brad Pitt opened up about turning to alcoholism to 'escape' life which led to his divorce. One of the most striking couples of Hollywood, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split in 2016 after being in a relationship for 7 years and being married for two. Jolie reportedly filed for divorce after Pitt's unfortunate fall-out with their eldest son Maddox.

The actor had been struggling with his drinking problems then but is now reportedly clean and sober. The actor admitted that drowning his troubles in alcohol had been an escape strategy for him and that he had been doing a disservice to himself. Even though the alcoholism cost him his marriage to his Mr.& Mrs. Smith co-star, Brad Pitt claimed that it had been necessary for him at that point in his life.
