Brad Pitt Is Opening Up About the ‘Safe’ AA Meetings That Helped Him Get Sober

Brad Pitt has talked about getting sober before but in a new interview with GQ, he opened up even more about his journey and some of the complications he had along the way. As you might imagine, finding a safe group to open up to is a little complicated when you’re one of the most recognizable figures in the world.

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

Hoffman’s battle with addiction was well publicized, and he died of a drug overdose in 2014. Hoffman co-starred with Pitt in 2011’s Moneyball.

As Yahoo! notes, Pitt has previously credited his fellow actor Bradley Cooper with getting him sober. In his acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor at the National Board of Review Awards in 2020, Pitt thanked Cooper from the stage: “I got sober because of this guy, and every day has been happier ever since. I love you and I thank you.”
