Brad Pitt - Brad Pitt Has No Reverse Gear

Brad Pitt can't go "backwards" in his life.

The 47-year-old actor - who raises six children with partner Angelina Jolie - has a "psychological defect" which means he won't rectify a mistake once he realises what has happened.

His "defect" even affects small aspects of his day like missing a turning when he is driving.

He told Empire magazine: "If I'm walking out of the door and I've forgotten something I can't go back and get it. It is something in my nature.

"If I'm driving down the road and I miss a turn, I have to keep going forwards. I can't reverse. It's some kind of psychological defect. I don't know the reason why. I don't like to go backwards. It's just not what I'm good at."

The 'Moneyball' star admits he has always behaved in the same way, and is focus on the next thing hindered his sporting career at school.

Brad - who was previously married to Jennifer Aniston - added: "In high school I played all the sports. I went from one to the other. I played football. I wrestled one year. I was on the diving team one year. I played tennis. I did basketball and I was capable at all of it but I wasn't great at any of it.

"Maybe if I had stuck with one I could have been great. But it's just that, for better or worse, I want to keep moving on."
