Pitt also discussed his relationship to alcohol, something that was rumoured to have fueled the divorce from Jolie last September.
The demise of ‘Brangelina’ was one of the biggest celebrity stories of 2016, with many expressing shock at how quickly such a high-profile and seemingly stable marriage fell apart. Now, Brad Pitt has broken his silence about his separation from Angelina Jolie in a new interview with GQ Style magazine.
Speaking about his divorce for the first time, the 53 year old revealed that he has sought professional counselling to help him deal with the emotional fallout of his split from Jolie, his wife over two years but with whom he was in a relationship for over a decade. They had six children – Maddox (15), Pax (13), Zahara (12), Shiloh (10) and twins Knox and Vivienne (8).
“You know, I just started therapy. I love it, I love it. I went through two therapists to get to the right one,” he said.

Brad Pitt steps out in public for 'The Lost City Of Z' premiere.
Brad Pitt stepped out in what was a rare public appearance as he joined the cast from 'The Lost City of Z' for the Hollywood premiere this week. Over the last six months, the star has made very few red carpet outings as he has been working on overcoming difficulties in his personal life.
Brad Pitt was an executive producer on 'The Lost City of Z'
The 53-year-old actor arrived on the red carpet at ArcLight Hollywood in Los Angeles today (April 6th 2017) to mark the release of this action biopic on which he worked as an executive producer. There has been much concern from the media regarding Pitt's skinny physique as he navigates the trials and tribulations of single life following his split with Angelina Jolie. However, he looked happy enough to be surrounded by 'The Lost City of Z' team this week.
Brangelina are back on speaking terms, six months on from the announcement of their divorce, it has been reported.
Six months on from the announcement of their explosive divorce, it has been reported that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are on “cordial” speaking terms for the first time as the custody battle over their six children goes on.
Back in September last year, when the news broke that Jolie and Pitt were to disintegrate their two-year marriage and relationship that had lasted for over a decade, it looked as if the process would be ugly, with details played out in the press.
However, in January this year, both sides agreed that the details of the custody of children Maddox (15), Pax (13), Zahara (12), Shiloh (10) and twins Knox and Vivienne (8) would be kept private in sealed court documents.

Pitt and Hudson had been romantically linked by more than one report earlier this week.
An article published by Australian magazine Woman’s Day on Monday (November 28th) claimed that: “Kate is Brad's mystery woman. They've been extremely close over the past few weeks, following several secret meet-ups.”
52 year old Pitt, of course, has been recovering from the shock of his divorce from Angelina Jolie, his partner of more than a decade and wife of two years, which was announced suddenly a little over two months ago.

There's a terrific script at the heart of this World War II thriller, with a blast of complex romance alongside some dark Hitchcockian twists. But filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump) was probably the wrong man for the directing job, as he overproduces every scene to within an inch of its life. Everything is so big and slick that the story begins to be swamped by the too-perfect costumes and scenery. Which makes it difficult for the audience to engage in what should really be a scrappy, dangerous little drama.
It all kicks off in 1942 Casablanca, where Canadian pilot Max (Brad Pitt) meets French resistance agent Marianne (Cotillard), and together they pose as a couple to infiltrate a party and assassinate a high-ranking Nazi. They also fall in love, and afterwards decide to move to London together and start a family. But a year later, as they are raising their young daughter in leafy Hampstead, Max is told by British officials (Jared Harris and Simon McBurney) that Marianne may have secretly been a German spy all along. And there's now a countdown, as a trap as been laid to prove her guilt unless Max can find evidence to the contrary.
What follows is a tense series of events that are drenched in suspicion and intrigue as Max scrambles around to find the truth while trying not to let Marianne know what he's up to. It's a clever set-up that's very nicely played by Pitt and Cotillard, both of whom bring contrasting layers of emotion and subterfuge to their roles, plus plenty of swooning romantic energy. Most intriguing is that both are able to remain likeable as things progress. So whatever the outcome, it won't change how we feel about them. The adept actors in the side roles are excellent, although they're little more than more scenery around the central couple.

He says similar events happened to writer Steven Knight's family.

Brad Pitt says there's truth behind 'Allied'
The Oscar winning superstar is no stranger to World War II style films having previously starred in Quentin Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds' in 2009 and David Ayer's 'Fury' in 2014.

When his wife is later accused by Vatan's colleagues of being a German spy, he is urged to eliminate her, but instead he sets out to prove her innocence.

Max Vatan is spy assassin who's sent to France to help the allied forces. The pair fall for one another and start a love affair.
