While Brad Pitt is making the interview rounds promoting Ad Astra, it was his comments regarding his struggle with alcoholism that had the Internet talking on Tuesday. Speaking to The Project, Brad stated it was important for him to be open about his battle. It seems that is the case as he certainly opened up to interviewer Carrie Bickmore.
Brad stated that it's important for people to remember that we are essentially all the same and all have our own demons.
