In a candid interview with GQ Style, Brad Pitt addresses his current situation divulging intimate particulars on his life post Angelina, situation with the kids and sobriety. He goes on to reveal feeling helplessly trapped when Child Services were called to interject and taking steps to become a better father by making sure to put his children first. Now a year and a half sober, Pitt touches upon a time when alcohol and pot were mainstay priorities in his life. Working hard to eliminate such vices, the accomplished actor has found other means to replace such habits. For an in-depth look, check out the full interview here.

On how he spends his time now.

If I’m not creating something, doing something, putting it out there, then I’ll just be creating scenarios of fiery demise in my mind. You know, a horrible end. And so I’ve been going to a friend’s sculpting studio, spending a lot of time over there.

On the past six months and moving forward.

Family first. People on their deathbeds don’t talk about what they obtained or were awarded. They talk about their loved ones or their regrets—that seems to be the menu.

On when acting is still exciting.

I would say more in comedic stuff, where you’re taking gambles. I can turn out the hits over and over and I just—my favorite movie is the worst-performing film of anything I’ve done, The Assassination of Jesse James. If I believe something is worthy, then I know it will be worthy in time to come.

On the the difficulties of quitting pot.

No. Back in my stoner days, I wanted to smoke a joint with Jack and Snoop and Willie. You know, when you’re a stoner, you get these really stupid ideas. Well, I don’t want to indict the others, but I haven’t made it to Willie yet.

On who he listens to musically.

I’ve been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean. I find this young man so special. Talk about getting to the raw truth. He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one.
