Brad Pitt Has Taken Up Surprising Hobby Next To Divorce
Brad Pitt has been healing since his divorce from Angelina Jolie in September. In his first major interview post-split, which GQ Style published this week, the actor revealed he’s recovering from the separation, mending his relationship with his kids and has quit drinking.
He’s also revealed that he’s devoting a lot of his time to a new creative outlet: sculpting. “If I’m not creating something, doing something, putting it out there, then I’ll just be creating scenarios of fiery demise in my mind. You know, a horrible end,” he said.
“I’ve been going to a friend’s sculpting studio, spending a lot of time over there,” Pitt explained. “My friend [Thomas Houseago] is a serious sculptor. They’ve been kind. I’ve literally been squatting in there for a month now. I’m taking a shit on their sanctity.”
“I’m making everything,” Pitt added in his interview. “I’m working with clay, plaster, rebar, wood. Just trying to learn the materials. You know, I surprise myself. But it’s a very, very lonely occupation. There’s a lot of manual labor, which is good for me right now. A lot of lugging clay around, chopping and moving and cleaning up after yourself. But I surprise myself.”
