10 Things You Didn’t Know About Brad Pitt!
On forms, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button star does not list his job as an actor. Instead, he lists his occupation as self-employed. “I learned that from Bruce Paltrow,” he told Esquire. “I always liked it. It’s a humble way to describe what we do.” If a stranger asks him what he does for a living on a plane, he usually responds with, “This and that” and “I’m a dad just like you.”
7. Depressive Phase
According to the Oscar-nominated actor, he went through a depressive stage in the late ‘90s where he was wallowing in self-loathing and was soothing himself with marijuana. “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,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. It took a trip to Morocco that showed him the depths of real human suffering to help get out of his depression and get him to stop smoking dope. “I just quit. I stopped grass then – I mean, pretty much – and decided to get off the couch,” he said.
