Brad Pitt feels emotionally at the top of his game after opening up to a purely male recreational group.
The star of the upcoming space drama Ad Astra reported on his sobriety in a long interview with The New York Times which was released on Wednesday. Pitt was reportedly spending a year and a half with Alcoholics Anonymous after parting ways with actress and filmmaker Angelina Jolie. (A dispute on a plane about his drinking habits was supposedly the "last sip" in the couple's relationship.) "I had done everything I could, so I canceled my drinking privileges," Pitt told the Times .
In AA, Pitt was part of a recuperation group consisting exclusively of men. Pitt told the Times how moved he was by the men he met, and noted their vulnerability.
"They had all these men sitting around, open and honest in a way I've never heard before," said the actor. "It was this safe place where there was little judgment, and therefore little judgment."
The group proved to be trustworthy, open and have an exceptionally strong bond with each other. In fact, so strong that no one in the group sold Pitt's story ̵
"It really was really free just to expose the ugly side of you," he said. "This is a great value."
