Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt is known for being one of the biggest Hollywood stars alive today, and for many years, he was also an atheist. However, recent struggles of his that include addiction and a painful divorce from Angelina Jolie have led to him finding God.

For years, Pitt pushed all questions of faith aside in favor of life’s many worldly distractions. It was only during his divorce from Jolie that he started to change and value the real blessings of life, including his children.

“I gotta be more — I gotta be more for them,” Brad said amidst his divorce. “I have to show them. And I haven’t been great at it.”

Pitt remembers sleeping on a friend’s floor for weeks following his divorce because he was simply “too sad” to stay in the family’s home all alone. These kinds of struggles are what softened his heart and allowed him to find God.

Pitt did not have a good experience with faith growing up, and though he was raised in a Christian home, he says it was more of a “cleaner, stricter” version of Christianity. Back then, he saw faith as a list of rules rather than a personal relationship with Christ.

“I never understood growing up with Christianity-don’t do this, don’t do that-it’s all about don’ts,” he explained.

Once he grew up, Pitt ditched Christianity altogether.

“I completely left it [Christianity] and I called myself agnostic,” he said. “Tried a few spiritual things but didn’t feel right.”

Though he was soon calling himself an atheist, Pitt said this was more about conforming to the standards of the world versus truly denying God in his heart.

“Then I called myself an atheist for a while, just kind of being rebellious. I wasn’t really,” he said. “But I kinda labeled myself that for a while. It felt punk rock enough.”

After what he’s been through recently, however, Pitt has found God again.

“Oh, man, I’ve gone through everything. Like, I cling to religion,” Pitt said. “Then I found myself coming back around to just belief in-I hate to use the word spirituality, but just a belief in that we’re all connected.”

We’re so glad to see that Pitt has found God again, and we hope he uses his platform to spread the word of Christ.
