Our family’s ripped apart: Brad [The Nation] 04 May, 2017

LOS ANGELES-Brad Pitt has had a rough past six months.

The 53-year-old actor breaks his silence about his split from Angelina Jolie in an emotional interview with GQ Style, in which he shares that he’s currently in therapy, acknowledges his drinking had become a problem and says his family has been “ripped apart.”

“I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called,” Pitt says, though he was eventually cleared of all child abuse allegations last November. “And you know, after that, we’ve [he and Jolie] been able to work together to sort this out. We’re both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, ‘No one wins in court - it’s just a matter of who gets hurt worse.’ And it seems to be true, you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you’re right and why they’re wrong, and it’s just an investment in vitriolic hatred.” Pitt says he and 41-year-old Jolie are united in not making things ugly in court, although they were previously engaged in an intense custody battle.

“I just refuse,” he says. “And fortunately my partner in this agrees. It’s just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart. If anyone can make sense of it, we have to with great care and delicacy, building everything around that.”

“Our focus is that everyone come out stronger and better people - there is no other outcome,” he adds.

The Allied star says he doesn’t want to “hate” Jolie.

“I see it happen to friends - I see where the one spouse literally can’t tell their own part in it, and it’s still competing with the other in some way and wants to destroy them, and needs vindication by destruction, and just wasting years on that hatred. I don’t want to live that way.”

Obviously, the split is a painful process for everyone involved.

“The first urge is to cling on,” he admits about his feelings towards his family post-split. “And then you’ve got a cliche: If you love someone, set them free. Now I know what it means, by feeling it. It means to love without ownership. It means expecting nothing in return.”

Pitt says he’s been able to get through the past six months by being “family first.” He admits he’s previously let work take him away from his children.

“Kids are so delicate,” he explains. “They absorb everything. They need to have their hand held and things explained. They need to be listened to. When I get in that busy work mode, I’m not hearing. I want to be better at that.”

Above all, the actor wants to be “more” for his children.

“I come from a place where, you know, it’s strength if we get a bruise or cut or ailment [and] we don’t discuss it,” he shares. “We just deal with it. We just go on. The downside of that is it’s the same with our emotions. I’m personally very retarded when it comes to taking inventory of my emotions. I’m much better at covering up.”

In January, Pitt and Jolie sent out a joint statement sharing that they’ve both signed agreements to keep all of their court documents private, and said that they were “committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.”

Since then, the two appear to be amicable. “We will always be a family. Always,” Jolie said when asked about Pitt during her appearance on Good Morning America in February.

Last week, a source close to the actor told ET that Pitt had his first overnight stay with all six of his children.
