“I lived here for a couple of years, then I jumped around everywhere, just let my friends crash down here, and then I got it somewhere in the air in order. Have pretty much hidden myself out here.”
(But do not assume that it is an underplayed house that he turns it into – the 1.9-acre property includes an outdoor pool, private tennis court and skate park.)
6. How Brad Pitt Spends His Free Time.
Have you ever wondered what celebrities do in their downtime? Us too.
Well, Brad Pitt enjoys playing guitar (a hobby he took up during the pandemic) and driving up the coast.
“I’m driving out and I just feel like I’m taking a cloak off or something,” he told Moshfegh.
“[But] as soon as you turn in past Santa Barbara, I feel it coming, “he said of the weight of Hollywood.
“The shoulders are starting to get a little higher and I’m feeling it. I’m not quite sure what it is and how I’m going to struggle with it yet. Other than getting out and traveling a lot.”
The 58-year-old is also skilled – has recently learned pottery.
“It’s porcelain,” he said, showing Moshfegh some candlesticks he was making (¯ \ _ (ツ) _ / ¯).

7. He thinks he suffers from prosopagnosia.
Brad Pitt worries that people have the wrong impression of him in social contexts – that he is ‘remote, inaccessible, self-absorbed’ – because he struggles to remember new people.
But according to the actor, he wants to remember them and he is ashamed that he can not.
Pitt thinks it’s because he suffers from an undiagnosed condition: prosopagnosia, an inability to recognize people’s faces.
“No one believes in me!” he told Moshfegh.
8. In 2022, Brad Pitt’s embracing life.
Towards the end of the interview, Pitt became honest with Moshfegh – discussing his approach to life, his feelings and what he wants to do differently in the future.
“I’ve always felt very alone in my life, growing up alone as a child, alone even out here, and it’s really not until recently that I’ve gotten a bigger embrace from my friends and family,” the actor said.
“I always moved with the currents, drifting in one way and over to the next,” he said, before explaining why he thinks it is.
“I think I spent many years with a low-grade depression, and it is not until I have come to terms with it, and tried to embrace all aspects of myself – the beauty and the ugly – that I have been able to capture those moments of joy. “
