Brad Pitt Was a Marijuana ‘Artist’

He may be more famous for his love life than his film career, but Brad Pitt is rapidly gaining a reputation as a serious pot smoker too.

The father of six admitted that he only gave up smoking cannabis when he became a father a few years ago.

During an interview on US chat show Real Time, Pitt also joked that he was ‘an artist’ when it came to rolling joints.
Pitt, 45, was chatting to host Bill Maher about his latest film, Inglourious Basterds, when Maher brought up his role as a pot smoker in True Romance.

Maher said Pitt seemed ‘right at home’ playing a complete stoner.

‘I certainly had my day. Now it kind of turns me into a doughnut,’ Pitt replied.

Then the actor, who has six children with his partner Angelina Jolie, admitted he only quit smoking pot when he became a father.

‘I’m a dad now. You want to be alert and my eyes used to glaze over when I did that,’ he revealed.

Earlier this month, Pitt spoke about his penchant for pot in an interview with Parade magazine.

But the actor said he had stopped smoking when his habit began affecting his acting career.

‘I liked to smoke a bit of grass at the time, and I became very sheltered. Then I got bored,’ he told the magazine.
‘I was turning into a damn doughnut, really. So I moved as far away from that as I could. I was done.’

But during his interview on Real Time it became obvious that Pitt had continued smoking cannabis until fairly recently.

Maher mentioned a party that he had been to some years ago with Pitt. He told the audience that Pitt ‘rolled the most perfect joints’ he had ever seen.

‘I’m an artist,’ Pitt joked in response.

Pitt and his partner Jolie, 34, have six children; Maddox, 7, Pax, 5, Zahara, 4, Shiloh, 3, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 1.

Shiloh and the twins are their natural children while the older boys are adopted.

Pitt has been busy promoting his latest film, the Quentin Tarantino-directed Inglourious Basterds.
In the film, Pitt plays a Nazi-hunting US soldier who kill and scalps members of the Third Reich.

    “Blindly accusing anyone who has decided to cut back/quit for whatever reason does nothing to serve the side of truth.”

    im confused. what am i blindly accusing him of?

    “Which is what we want, when it comes to legalization. THE TRUTH. The lying and deceit of one party to get what they wanted is what got us in this mess in the first place.”

    im confused. so you are assuming brad pitt is being completely honest about his pot views on national tv as he promotes a film? do you really believe he quit for those reasons, do really believe he quit? does he represent that big capitalized TRUTH which you refer to?

    I think it shows a great sense of responsibility on his part. He recognizes the way that it effects him, and the negative consequences that may have. Rather than wait for something bad to happen before he changes his behavior, he is playing it safe.

    It shows that his kids are more important to him than bud. I have to say that if it effects him like he says it did, I would applaud him for playing the side of caution where his children are concerned.

    Blindly accusing anyone who has decided to cut back/quit for whatever reason does nothing to serve the side of truth. Which is what we want, when it comes to legalization. THE TRUTH. The lying and deceit of one party to get what they wanted is what got us in this mess in the first place.

    …the first two lines of this article:

    He may be more famous for his love life than his film career, but Brad Pitt is rapidly gaining a reputation as a serious pot smoker too.

    The father of six admitted that he only gave up smoking cannabis when he became a father a few years ago.

    So he is gaining a reputation as a serious pot smoker by giving up the weed because he has kids.

    Listen to this serious pot smoker…’I was turning into a damn doughnut, really. So I moved as far away from that as I could. I was done.’

    Playing it safe by dissing the plant as he promotes his new film…what a guy, way to go Brad!

    “You want to be alert and my eyes used to glaze over when I did that” This quote given in the article is WRONG. Turn the sound up and listen to the video. Brad actually says: “I’m a dad now, and you wanna be alert. Did you see how his eyes glazed over when I said that?”

    If we’re gonna quote people lets listen with both ears. =P Lol I was baked as shit and caught that.

    “I’m a dad now. You want to be alert and my eyes used to glaze over when I did that”….”it turns me into a damned doughnut”…”it was affecting my acting career”?!
    What about all those years he smoked…you know…the years during which he got famous and rich from his acting…so he is afraid his career will get hurt now because he has a smoke? If he’s worried about being high around his children then why doesn’t he have a toke after they go to bed? He is afraid he wont be alert enough around his kids? Have a smoke and think about why it turns you into a damned doughnut!
    Wouldn’t it be great if an A-list celeb just came out on national tv and screamed “LEGALIZE IT ALREADY FOR CRYING OUT LOUD”. Upsets me to see him walk the cool fence with his chickenshit scripted talking points…talking points which will no doubt be used against the people who are fighting for the right to smoke.

    The world needs more famous people speaking out publicly against prohibition. People always listen to celebrities. If you could get Oprah to say the prohibition was bad, the drug war would be over the next year at the latest. She did get Obama elected…
