Brad Pitt Talks Drugs Before Life With Angelina Jolie
Star says he is the happiest he's ever been with Ange & their six kids...
Speaking to Esquire magazine, the World War Z actor claimed his life was far from perfect before he hooked-up with Ange, explaining how he decided to make a "conscious change" before it was too late.
The 49-year old said: "For a long time I thought I did too much damage – drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years f***ing off.
"But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change… This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany.”
Pitt went on to state that he couldn't be happier with Jolie and their six children: "I always thought that if I wanted to do a family, I wanted to do it big. I wanted there to be chaos in the house ... there's constant chatter in our house, whether it's giggling or screaming or crying or banging.
"I love it. I love it. I love it. I hate it when they're gone. I hate it. Maybe it's nice to be in a hotel room for a day - 'Oh, nice, I can finally read a paper.' But then, by the next day, I miss that cacophony, all that life.”
He added: “I have a handful of close friends and I have my family — and I haven’t known life to be any happier.”
Brangelina hit the headlines last week after Jolie revealed she had a preventative double mastectomy, with Pitt branding her decision to talk about her op "heroic."
