Life isn’t always easy and for the past 9 months, Brad Pitt has been dealing with a family break up and divorce as well as life’s daily stresses. In September 2016, news broke that Angelina Jolie was separating from her husband of two years, Brad and since then the couple have been involved in a bitter break up, battling for custody of their six children. There’s no doubt that the heavily publicised divorce must be taking its toll on the American actor, but it appears he’s using work as a distraction. On 26th May, War Machine will be released starring Brad. The American war film is based on the non-fiction book entitled The Operators by Michael Hastings and is also co-produced by Brad. The film is a satire of America’s war with Afghanistan focusing on the people running the campaign. Last year, it was also announced that Brad would star in the upcoming sequel to World War Z. An actor and producer known for his versatility, Brad’s most widely recognised role is probably Tyler Durden in 1999’s Fight Club. Brad first gained recognition as a cowboy hitchhiker in Thelma & Louise in 1991. He had his first leading role a year later in River Runs Through It and has since appeared in major international hits such as Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Thirteen and 12 Years a Slave in 2013. In a career that’s spanned over 20 years, Brad has received a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award and three Academy Award nominations. He’s also a producer under his own company, Plan B Entertainment, which has also had several nominations on its own accord. As a public figure, Brad is one of the most influential people in the American entertainment industry and one of the highest grossing actors – we don’t think he’ll be single for long. Brad first met Angelina whilst filming their 2005 action film Mr & Mrs Smith. This in itself hit headlines as Brad was actually with Jennifer Anniston during this time. However, could there still be hope for Brad and Jen? We don’t think so, as Jennifer has since married, actor and screenwriter Justin Theroux, tying the knot in 2015 after four years of dating. Poor Brad has certainly been through a lot but what is his life lesson? “Success is a beast. And it actually puts the emphasis on the wrong thing. You get away with more instead of looking within.” He added: “What’s valuable to me has become clearer as I’ve got older. To me, it’s about the value of your time and your day and the value of the people you spend it with. It’s about me being a strong father and guide and a good match for my significant other. “ War Machine will be released on 26th May n Image credit: Debby Wong / Shutterstock.com Image credits: s_bukley / Shutterstock.com
