Brad Pitt said he hasn’t cried in 20 years.
In the past three years, the actor has been piecing back together his heart after the breakdown of his marriage to Angelina Jolie
And now the Fury star, 55, confessed he finds himself much “more moved” by his kids whom he shares with his ex-wife even though he doesn’t cry.
Brad hailed his emotional awakening was a “good sign”.
The exes have three biological children (Shiloh, 13, Vivienne, 11, and Knox, 11) as well as three adopted children (Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, and Zahara, 14).
In discussion for Interview magazine , the actor opened up about his emotions to his 1944 Legends of the Fall and 1998 Meet Joe Black co-star Anthony Hopkins.
He told his co-star: “I am quite famously a not-crier. Is that a term? I hadn’t cried in, like, 20, years, and now I find myself, at this latter stage, much more moved. Moved by my kids, moved by friends, moved by the news. Just moved.
“I think it’s a good sign. I don’t know where it’s going, but I think it’s a good sign.”
Brad opened up about “wrestling” with “blaming” himself but he didn’t specify what he was referring to.
The dad-of-six did talk candidly about learning to “forgive” himself for the choices he has made in his life.
Also the Allied star also reflected on how he used booze as an “escape”.
He said: “I’m realizing, as a real act of forgiveness for myself for all the choices that I’ve made that I’m not proud of, that I value those missteps, because they led to some wisdom, which led to something else. You can’t have one without the other.”
In the wake of his divorce from Angelina three years ago, Brad famously likened their marriage breakdown to like a death in his first interview following the split with GQ magazine in September 2016.
Asked if the break up was like grieving a death, he simply replied: “Yeah.”
Brad and Angelina were a showbiz power couple, having been together for 12 years.
They were married in August 2014 but their love wasn’t made to last as they split in September 2016.
Rumours had been swirling Brad was enjoying a romance with Alia Shawkat but a source close to People shared they are simply friends.
