Beyond his charisma, Pitt has lived a different set of rules than other actors. He would forget you the very next day after you met him. But that is not his fault, it’s just a condition he has had to live by. Also, remarkably, he is not superstitious, and despite all odds, adheres to his ideals.

The Time When Brad Pitt Almost S*it His Pants

Brad Pitt does not adhere to religious beliefs or any superstition. Growing up, he was not much into it either, and it was influenced by a friend.

“Grade school. He told me that when you meet the devil, you’re going to hear three knocks,” Pitt told Esquire. “And then the band would start playing — ‘Tubular Bells,’ from The Exorcist,”

He also added, recalling the prank that scared him to the bone,

“Wigged me out. Because of the belief I was steeped in, the mythology I was living in, I stayed awake for three months waiting for the three knocks. Then one night I heard them. I almost s*it my pants. I thought I was done for. But the music didn’t play. Nothing happened. I still have a little beef about that. I still take issue with that — the loss of three months.”

A soundtrack when filming World War Z, a Marc Forster-directed zombie apocalyptic thriller, unsettled Pitt a bit as it sounded like Tubular Bells. Of course, it was not a literal scare of ghosts, rather he was scared of having to leave his children and film the movie with an enormous crowd. At least, his friend who played the soundtrack got to know how he gets sacred.

Brad Pitt on Superstitions

Pitt learned to deviate from religious holds at a young age. However, his family has been believers. “We differ greatly on those beliefs, and yet I can’t change them and they can’t change me,” Pitt told Esquire

“But we’re family, man. We’ve always been family. We’re linked by blood and experience. I’m sure they’re saddened by me, and I get frustrated with them. But I love them, and at the end of the day if they need me or if they need anything, I’m there for them. Family,” he added.

Speaking of superstition and belief, Pitt told the outlet that he has not been superstitious. “If I ever start to feel it, I go the other way,” he said. “I walk right under the ladder.” Pitt’s way of life has certainly been different. His charisma and lifestyle would shine the actor even in a crowd of a thousand.
