Brad Pitt has revealed that his heavy cannabis use turned him into what he calls a “doughnut”!


The ‘Moneyball‘ actor said his marijuana smoking got out of control in the late 90s in a bid to try to escape the pressures of fame.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter magazine, he says:

“I got really sick of myself at the end of the 1990s. 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.”


THR‘s features editor Stephen Galloway revealed the actor credits his drug use to depression, saying:

“He said it’s like he had a semester of depression.

“He hasn’t had that in this decade, but he definitely wrestled with it in the past.”


Last year, the 48-year-old Hollywood star, who was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar this week, decided to quit smoking regularly cigarettes after being caught puffing by two of his children, daughters Zahara and Shiloh.


Always a good reason to quit!
