"For a long time I thought I did too much damage - drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter and wanted to see things. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany - a decision not to squander my opportunities," a website quoted Pitt as saying.
“I have a handful of close friends and I have my family - and I haven’t known life to be any happier,” said Pitt.
The actor also said he loves the mayhem that comes with having a large family.
