The former couple had both joyful and sad moments together. Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on September 20, 2016, claiming irreconcilable differences. Following his divorce, Pitt gave up drinking in 2016 after spending 18 months attending meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous and adopting the group’s guiding tenet of avoiding drugs that had a damaging effect on him.

Brad Pitt’s decision to increase his smoking during the frantic and fearful COVID-19 epidemic months would make sense. Brad, 58, however, disclosed that he stopped smoking during the lockdown in the newest GQ cover story. After offering GQ’s Ottessa Moshfegh a nicotine mint, Brad shared that he quit smoking over the past few years after realizing that cutting back on cigarettes wasn’t going to work.

“I don’t have that ability to do just one or two a day,” he said. “It’s not in my makeup. I’m all in. And I’m going to drive into the ground. I’ve lost my privileges.”

This action comes following Brad’s vow to quit drinking when his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, requested a divorce in September 2016. The actor of Bullet Train said that he went to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings to overcome his vices.

“I had a really cool men’s group here that was really private and selective, so it was safe. Because I’d seen things of other people who had been recorded while they were spilling their guts, and that’s just atrocious to me.”
