Brad Pitt reveals that he spent years with ‘low-grade depression’ after his divorce

Brad Pitt made his health a priority after splitting from Angelina Jolie. Following Jolie's divorce filing in 2016, the actor got sober, spending a year and a half in Alcoholics Anonymous, he told GQ for its August cover. "I had a really cool men's group here that was really private and selective, so it was safe," Pitt shared. "Because I'd seen things of other people, like Philip Seymour Hoffman, who had been recorded while they were spilling their guts, and that's just atrocious to me." Drinking wasn’t the only problem that Pitt wanted to remove from his life. After initially trying to minimise the number of cigarettes he smoked in a day, Pitt ultimately quit altogether during the Covid-19 pandemic. "I don't have that ability to do just one or two a day," he told GQ. Though Pitt's physical health seemed to be getting better, his mental health still needed work. The actor shared that he had "spent years with a low-grade depression."
