After Brad Pitt opened up for his first interview since announcing the divorce from Angelina Jolie, some may have found themselves feeling sorry for the broken-hearted World War Z star. On the contrary, a columnist for Daily Mail had a drastically different take on the interview and proceeded to blast the 53-year-old actor for being a "pampered man-baby" and painting himself as a victim of unfortunate circumstances.
In a scathing article, columnist Jan Moir sarcastically referred to the Hollywood superstar as "Sad Brad." Even though Pitt seems remorseful about his family life being in disarray, the writer slammed him for not taking full responsibility for his actions.
"You see, it's not that Brad likes smoking pot and drinking too much that caused the end of his marriage. Well, actually it is – but apparently he only spliffs up and boozes on down because he grew up in Missouri where men were men, cowboys were cowboys and no one admitted to having feelings, even if they fell head-first off a bucking bronco or stubbed a toe on the front porch, no siree," Moir wrote.
While talking to GQ, Brad Pitt explained that he has been attending therapy and counseling sessions to come to terms with his emotions. The Daily Mail writer offered a blunt suggestion for what the therapists should have said to Pitt.
"You have to wonder why this, no doubt lavishly remunerated, counselor didn't just say, listen you 53-year-old, multimillionaire, chronically pampered man-baby, why don't you try growing up? And instead of feeling sorry for yourself, start taking responsibility for yourself?"
"He has consoled himself by taking up sculpture - of course he has - and spends 'up to 17 hours a day' trying to find 'a moment of bliss with the clay' while listening to ballads. Prince George does much the same thing with Play-Doh."
Moir continued by writing: "Is it wrong to imagine that this artistic output consists of giant female statues wearing pointed black hats moulded by Brad's own trembling hands? Perhaps the word WITCH sprayed on the studio wall in a really artistic way."
The writer also attacked Brad saying that his public image and reputation shouldn't be beyond reproach because he is undergoing therapy.
"Therapy is represented as a cure-all for everyone, be you a duchess with complicated feelings following a birth of your second child, a serial axe murderer hungry for victim number 17 or a Hollywood film star who has just been dumped," Moir wrote.
The columnist concluded by claiming that Brad had a strategy behind giving his first interview since the divorce.
"In the world of the Hollyweirds, he wants to show his pain for popular gain," Moir wrote.0comments
