Brad Pitt’s interview on Anthony Hopkins on his upcoming movie “The Two Popes”. A changed man? The interview quickly geared towards Brad’s life.
Brad cried saying,
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.

Pitt and Hopking starred together in the movie “Legends of the Fall” and “Meet Joe Black”. The movies that discuss self-awareness and learning from your mistakes.
We’ve always placed great importance on the mistake.
But the next move, what you do after the mistake, is what really defines a person. We’re all going to make mistakes. But what is that next step? We don’t, as a culture, seem to stick around to see what that person’s next step is. And that’s the part I find so much more invigorating and interesting.
Pitt also discussed being sober after his divorce with Angelina Jolie since 2016. And that he told New York Times that he stopped drinking after he and Jolie split.
During his interview with Hopkins, 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. I see it as something I’m just now getting my arms around at this time in my life. But I certainly don’t feel like I can take credit for any of it.
