Earlier this month, Brad Pitt said it very clearly:
He’s an open book (who isn’t thinking about suicide).
But a new report from In Touch Weekly leaves us wondering…
… will the actor soon write a book that fans everywhere can open and read?
Indeed, an anonymous insider tells this supermarket tabloid that Pitt has written so often in his journal since splitting from Angelina Jolie that it has now over 300 pages long.
And he’s thinking of releasing the diary as a memoir.
“At the beginning, it was just to get all of his thoughts out there in a very concise manner so that he could share it with his therapist,” In Touch writes.
“It started to become a lifeline for Brad as he pieced together his new life without Angie.”
Because this writing was originally meant solely for his eyes and the eyes of his therapist, Pitt supposedly did not hold anything back when it comes to his marriage to Jolie.
We can only imagine the sort of juicy details the diary contains.
“[Brad] is extremely blunt and authentic in describing what led to the breakdown of his marriage to Angie,” this source says, adding:
“Angie said she wasn’t interested in reading it and expressed concern about Brad releasing any sort of book because of the impact it could have on their kids.”
That’s a fair concern.
Pitt and Jolie are parents to six (yes, SIX!) children.
Jolie is asking for primary custody, but Pitt is fighting back in court and demanding a joint arrangement instead.
He’s made it clear over the past several weeks that the well-being of his family is very important, but “he believes that by releasing the book, he can help others with similar issues,” alleges the In Touch insider.
What sort of issues?
In a candid interview with GQ Style, Pitt recently opened up his past abuse of drugs and alcohol.
“I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something. Something,” the actor admitted to the men’s magazine.
He confessed in this same interview that he did so as a way to “run from feelings.”
Thankfully, Pitt also told the publication that he hasn’t touched any of these substances in about 18 months.
“I’m really, really happy to be done with all of that,” he continued.
“I mean I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family… I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got my feelings in my fingertips again.
“I think that’s part of the human challenge: You either deny them all of your life or you answer them and evolve.”
WAIT…. WAIT… WAIT… is Angelina Jolie about to get married?!?
Following this revealing chat with GQ, Pitt also spoke to the Associated Press.
He’s clearly anxious to get his story out there, which is the only reason we believe any aspect of this memoir report.
“I’ve got no secrets. I’ve got nothing to hide,” the 53-year old told the AP in mid-May, saying he and Jolie are on the same page when it comes to their kids.
The six children are all that matters.
“Our focus is that everyone come out stronger and better people – there is no other outcome,” Pitt said. “Kids are everything. Kids are your life.”
