When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's 12-year relationship ended in 2016, there were reports that the final straw came when they reportedly fought over his drinking aboard a private plane. The split was a serious wake-up call for Brad who recently revealed that he is committed to his sobriety.

He said, "I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privileges. You had all these men sitting around being open and honest in a way I have never heard. It was this safe space where there was little judgment, and therefore little judgment of yourself."

None of the members of his recovery group - which was composed entirely of men, told Brad's stories to the press. This bond of trust gave him a much-needed catharsis. He added, "It was actually really freeing just to expose the ugly sides of yourself. There's great value in that."

In an unexpected case of every cloud has a silver lining, Brad's personal turmoil may have helped him in his new film, Ad Astra. A source revealed, "He definitely used the stimuli from his life. Now, I didn't get personal with him about it at all - I don't think it's my business, or even my job - but he investigated the essence of the character through himself. I had family stuff going on. We'll leave it at that."

Brad previously revealed that he quit drinking by saying, "Personally, I can't remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn't boozing or had a spliff, or something And you realize that a lot of it is, um-cigarettes, you know, pacifiers. And I'm running from feelings and cranberry juice and fizzy water. I've got the cleanest urinary tract in all of L.A."
