Brad Pitt has always been (and probably always will be) a heartthrob. From the days when it was Brad Pitt vs. Tom Cruise to his marriage to Jennifer Aniston and now his upcoming marriage to Angelina Jolie, Brad has never gone unnoticed. However, that fame doesn’t mean that the actor was always famous … or that he never used drugs.
Us Weekly spoke to the actor on Friday at the Los Angeles screening of The House We Live In, where he joked that he is a “drug addict.”
“No, my drug days have long since past (sic),” Brad said. So are you surprised to hear that Brad did in fact have a drug phase? But when?
Us Weekly recalls a 2011 interview with Parade when Brad said the early stages of fame resulted in him smoking pot. “I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out.”
Although those days are long gone, Brad still has a lot to say when it comes to the drug trade in the country: “It's certainly true that I could probably land in any city, in any state, and get you whatever you wanted. I could find anything you're looking for, give me 24 hours or so. And yet we still support this, I have to say, this charade called the drug war.”
“We've spent a trillion dollars, it's lasted, it's gone on, for over 40 years - a lot of people have lost their lives for it. And we still talk about it like it's a success. And yet it's a flawed, a backwards system/strategy that actually perpetuates itself,” Brad said.
