It’s been three years since Brad Pitt officially became single again, and rumours around his relationship status have swirled non-stop.

Brad Pitt sets the record straight on dating rumours and drug use

Now, in a wide-ranging interview with New York Times Magazine, the 55-year-old has finally addressed the buzz while opening up about his personal life and career.

The Hollywood heavyweight discussed “how many women” he’s been linked to since his shock separation from Angelina Jolie in 2016, refuting all the dating rumours surrounding him that he’s seen in the media.

“I don’t know how many women they’ve said I’ve been dating the last two or three years, and none of it’s true,” he said.

Despite a string of high-profile romances during his early career with the likes of Juliette Lewis, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and Jolie, his recent rumoured relationships have been low-key.

Pitt has been linked to designer and professor Neri Oxman, jewellery designer Sat Hari Khalsa, and Arrested Development actress Alia Shawkat.

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor also went into depth about his reliance on marijuana during his early celebrity days.

Pitt said the pressure of his swift rise to fame cause him to turn to cannabis and seclusion.

“I spent most of the ’90s hiding out and smoking pot,” he said. “I was too uncomfortable with all the attention.”

Eventually, Pitt said he “got to a place where I was aware that I was imprisoning myself”, and made an effort to spend more time out in public.

“Now I go out and live life, and generally people are pretty cool.”

To avoid returning to his life of isolation, Pitt avoids reading all media coverage about him.

“Not just reviews. I mean any magazine in the doctor’s office,” he said.

“Because some of it would bounce around like a rat in the skull. It would stay there, and it would inform some of my decisions and choices in work, in life, and I didn’t find any of it helpful.”

However, the star did confess he doesn’t go out of his way to avoid the press.

“I just don’t seek it out,” he said.
