Brad Pitt and Agenlina Jolie May Marry

Seal Team 6 brought The Hollywood Reporter to the 14th floor of the W Hotel to interview Brad Pitt. They talked about religion, pot and marriage among other things.

Brad says in the mid-to-late 90’s, he was suffering from depression and ended up smoking a lot of pot. His outlook changed when he saw a bunch of poor kids running aroun. Knowing you have it way better than someone can always lift your spirits.

While Pitt’s star ascended with 1992’s A River Runs Through It, 1994’s Legends of the Fall and 1995’s Seven, his personal life declined.“I got really sick of myself at the end of the 1990s: I was hiding out from the celebrity thing; I was smoking way too much dope; I was sitting on the couch and just turning into a doughnut; and I really got irritated with myself,” he says. “I got to: ‘What’s the point? I know better than this.’ ” Pitt wrestled with dark thoughts: “I used to deal with depression, but I don’t now, not this decade — maybe last decade. But that’s also figuring out who you are. I see it as a great education, as one of the seasons or a semester: ‘This semester I was majoring in depression.’ I was doing the same thing every night and numbing myself to sleep — the same routine: Couldn’t wait to get home and hide out. But that feeling of unease was growing and one night I just said, ‘This is a waste.’

A trip to Casablanca, Morocco, in the mid-to-late 1990s, “where I saw poverty to an extreme I had never witnessed before, and we talked about inequality and health care, and I saw just what I felt was so unnecessary, that people should have to survive in these circumstances — and the children were inflicted with a lot of deformities, and things that could have been avoided had become their sentence. It stuck with me.” Almost overnight, he decided something had to give. “I just quit. I stopped grass then — I mean, pretty much — and decided to get off the couch.” The Hollywood Reporter

In the past, Brad and Angelina Jolie vowed to never marry until gay marriage was legalized. But now those damn kids are asking about it all the time and testing their resolve.

He oscillates, too, on the subject of whether he’ll get married, and it’s clear Pitt has shifted from his promise that this won’t happen until gay marriage is legalized. “We’d actually like to,” he says of his seven-year partner, Jolie, “and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.” Has he asked Jolie to marry him? “I’m not going to go any further,” says Pitt. “But to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous.”

I figured they didn’t want to get married in the first place so they made up this vow to never do it until gay marriage was legalized because it would never happen. Now those stupid kids are asking why mommy and daddy don’t have a piece of metal on their fingers. Well that’s simple, mommy and daddy don’t love each other. You hear that, Maddox, Pax, Vivienne, Knox, Sleepy, Grumpy and Doc ?! Yea, that’s it. Go to your room and cry.
