Brad Pitt reveals he suffers from rare disorder and has struggled with 'shameful' condition for years | The Sun

BRAD Pitt has revealed he suffers from a rare disorder that causes an inability to recognize other people's faces.

The actor, 58, believes he has prosopagnosia, an uncommon condition that triggers face blindness.

Brad opened up about the condition – which has never been officially diagnosed – in an interview with GQ.

The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star said he struggles to remember new people in social settings, especially at parties.

The actor fears that he's "ashamed" of the condition and fears it makes him come across as "remote, aloof, inaccessible, self-absorbed"

"Nobody believes me! I wanna meet another," he told author Ottessa Moshfegh when she revealed her husband believes he has the same condition.

This is not the first time Brad has claimed to have prosopagnosia.

"So many people hate me because they think I’m disrespecting them," he told Esquire back in 2013.

"Every now and then, someone will give me context, and I’ll say, ‘Thank you for helping me.’ But I piss more people off."

"You get this thing, like, ‘You’re being egotistical. You’re being conceited.’ But it’s a mystery to me, man," he continued.

In the same GQ interview, Pitt opened up about life after his messy divorce from Angelina Jolie.


The Fight Club star revealed that he got sober and spent a year and a half attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

“I had a really cool men’s group here that was really private and selective, so it was safe,” he told the magazine. “Because I’d seen things of other people who had been recorded while they were spilling their guts, and that’s just atrocious to me.”

Brad and Angelina, 47, have been battling it out since parting ways in 2016 – after being married for just two years.

Earlier this month, the Oscar winner accused his ex of selling her share of their winery in order to "inflict harm" and undermine him.

According to legal documents seen by Daily Mail, Brad has accused his ex of attempting to hurt him by secretly selling her stake in his French vineyard to "a Russian oligarch" with "poisonous intentions."


The plan, allegedly, also included a plan to take complete control of Brad's multi-million dollar business.

Back in September, the former pair reached an agreement on selling their $164million French estate, which paved the way for the Girl, Interrupted star to sell off her share of the Chateau Miraval.

Despite the agreement, Brad filed a lawsuit against Angelina and alleged she was trying to sell her shares of the mansion without allowing Brad his "right of first refusal and profit…"

The battling exes share six kids: Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and Vivienne and Knox, 13.
