Brad Pitt was raised as a Southern Baptist, but apparently, his faith didn’t stick.
The 45-year-old actor doesn’t believe in God, he told Bild.com.
“No, no, no!,” he declared, when asked if he believes in a higher power, or if he was spiritual. “I’m probably 20 percent atheist and 80 percent agnostic. I don’t think anyone really knows. You’ll either find out or not when you get there, until then there’s no point thinking about it.”
Pitt doesn’t seem to have a problem with others believing though.
“Religion works,” the actor said in a 2007 interview with Parade.
He adds, “I know there’s comfort there, a crash pad. It’s something to explain the world and tell you there is something bigger than you, and it is going to be all right in the end.”
The superstar, currently promoting his upcoming World War II film, “Inglourious Basterds,” also told Bild.com that he enjoys aging, prefers motorbikes over cars, and that while money can make things easier, it can also be a burden.
Pitt says he and longtime partner Angelina Jolie sleep on a “3 meter wide bed” to fit in their six kids.
“But even that isn’t big enough,” he admits. “They all come crawling in in the morning. It’s just about surviving! We all have sleep deprivation.”
