Brad Pitt Discusses ‘Relationship Failures’ While Promoting His Sculptures
About a week after Angelina Jolie alleged that Brad Pitt physically assaulted her and their mutual children on a private plane in 2016, Pitt admitted “failures in my relationships, where did I go wrong” in a Wednesday interview with the FinancialTimes.
Pitt, who is currently promoting a series of his sculptures on display at the Sara Hildén Art Museum in Finland, told the newspaper he started sculpting in 2016, around the time Jolie filed for divorce. after the alleged plane crash. He said he started collaborating with his longtime friend, British artist Thomas Houseago, at the latter Los Angeles studio, and they bonded over their “mutual misery.”
“Out of that misery came a flame of joy in my life,” Pitt said, explaining that he had “always wanted to be a sculptor.”
While telling the Time About her artistic process, Pitt seemed to acknowledge Jolie’s allegations of mistreatment and abuse: “It’s all about self-reflection,” he said. “I was looking at my own life and really focusing on my own shit: where was I complicit in my relationship failures, where did I misstep.” Pitt explained that his art “was born out of owning what I call a radical self-inventory, becoming really brutally honest with myself and considering those I may have hurt.”
Of course, despite talking about accountability and admitting mistakes, the “sources” Speaking for Pitt were quite dismissive of Jolie’s allegations, calling them an attention stunt and accusing her of brainwashing their children and “poisoning” them against Pitt.
Last week, amid Pitt’s ongoing lawsuit against Jolie for intentionally “[seeking] to inflict damage” by selling her shares in their joint vineyard to a Russian “outsider” earlier this year, a counterclaim filed by Jolie has offered chilling new details about Pitt’s allegedly abusive behavior towards her and their joint children. The filings, which follow an FBI report into the 2016 private plane incident that became public in August, allege that during a drunken tirade, Pitt “grabbed Jolie by the head and grabbed her.” shook her, then grabbed her by the shoulders and shook her again before pushing her into the bathroom wall. When their children tried to defend Jolie, Pitt “choked one of the children and punched another in the face,” according to Jolie’s lawsuit.
Court documents claim that the FBI agent working on the family’s case told Jolie in October 2021 that they had “concluded that the government had probable cause to charge Pitt with a federal felony for his conduct. That day”. At the same time, the exes’ negotiations over their shared basement fell apart because Pitt allegedly demanded that Jolie sign an NDA about their marriage.
Since Jolie’s counter-suit last week, she’s been facing a deluge of online attacks recalling the harassment against Amber Heard. With netizens and media accusing Jolie of a malicious smear campaign against Pitt, it’s clear found peace in the fallout of a relationship by making art-notably the redemption hobby of choice for men like former President George W. Bush and Johnny Depptoo.
Nine of Pitt’s sculptures are currently showingincluding one featuring a shootout between eight characters, curiously titled, “Aiming at you, I saw myself, but it was too late this time”, which surely required considerable personal reflection! In addition to his little art side hustle, Pitt keeps busy, shilling “genderless” skin care and so called go out together the New divorced Emily Ratajkowski. Something tells me his life hasn’t been ruined yet.
