He also said he sought help to get sober, according to GQ. Pitt reportedly admitted to spending a year and a half in Alcoholics Anonymous and detailed his journey to sobriety.
“He had a really cool group of guys here that was really private and selective, so it was safe,” Pitt said, admitting that the big step in a forward direction was not without risk, the outlet reported.
“Because I had seen things from other people that had been recorded spilling their guts, and that’s just egregious to me,” Pitt told GQ.
