Accepting the trophy for Best Supporting Actor from Cooper at the National Board of Review Awards in 2020, Pitt said: “I got sober because of this guy, and every day has been happier ever since. I love you and I thank you.”
Elsewhere in the GQ interview, Pitt also spoke about his legacy, suggesting that he is in the “last leg” of his acting career.
“I consider myself on my last leg, this last semester or trimester,” he said. “What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?”
