‘Depressed’ Brad Pitt Explains Pothead Past ‘I Got Really Sick Of Myself’

By Radar Staff

It wasn’t easy being Brad Pitt in the 1990s!

The Academy Award nominee opens up in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that he suffered from depression after his rise to fame in the 1990s and turned to Mary Jane for support – and RadarOnline.com has the details.

“I got really sick of myself at the end of the 1990s,” he admits. “I was hiding out from the celebrity thing; I was smoking way too much dope; I was sitting on the couch and just turning into a doughnut; and I really got irritated with myself. I got to: ‘What’s the point? I know better than this.’”

Explaining how he “used to deal with depression,” he admits, “I was doing the same thing every night and numbing myself to sleep… the same routine: Couldn’t wait to get home and hide out. But that feeling of unease was growing and one night I just said, ‘This is a waste.’”

The ultimate reality check, was a trip to Casablanca, Morocco, where he witnessed extreme poverty and devastation.

“I just quit. I stopped grass then — I mean, pretty much — and decided to get off the couch.”
