Holy Crap! Brad Pitt Hasn’t Cried in 20 Years

Breitling Summit

In a sit down with Interview magazine, Brad Pitt revealed that he has not cried over the past twenty years.

He told Anthony Hopkins, who interviewed him for the story and whom he worked in movies such as Legends of the Fall and Meet Joe Black, that he is ‘quite famously a not-crier.’

He said, “Is that a term? I hadn’t cried in, like, 20, years, and now I find myself, at this later stage, much more moved. Moved by my kids, moved by friends, moved by the news. Just moved.”He added that he thinks that it is a good sign.”

On the other hand, Anthony told Pitt that most people just want to weep as they get older. He added that the tears he is talking about are no shed out of sadness. Pitt also talked about how people should judge others on how they react to a mistake instead of the mistake.

He said, “I think we’re living in a time where we’re extremely judgmental and quick to treat people as disposable. We’ve always placed great importance on the mistake. But the next move, what you do after the mistake, is what really defines a person.”

At this stage in his life, Pitt says he’s “still wrestling” with blame, apparently referring to his struggle with substance abuse amid his breakup with Jolie.

Pitt previously revealed he stopped drinking altogether and found solace in Alcoholics Anonymous group meetings during his highly publicized divorce.

“I’m realizing, as a real act of forgiveness for myself for all the choices that I’ve made that I’m not proud of, that I value those missteps because they led to some wisdom, which led to something else,” Pitt explained.

Instead of dwelling on his mistakes, the actor said he’s committed to trying to better himself through acceptance of his flaws.

“We’re living in a time where we’re extremely judgmental and quick to treat people as disposable,” he said. “We’ve always placed great importance on the mistake. But the next move, what you do after the mistake, is what really defines a person.”
