Brad Pitt became an atheist because he developed”Christian guilt” from his upbringing, the actor revealed in a recent interview.
Speaking to the Telegraph on Saturday, Brad Pitt expressed his views on religion and recalled how he was raised asa Southern Baptist by his father. However, he grew up as an atheist because of the”Christian guilt” instilled in him, according to Breitbart.
The Hollywood actor said he chose not to stick to any religion later on in life due tothe Christian guilt that alwaysdictated what he should and should not do. In 2007, Pitt told Parade in an interview how he would feel the same emotion when he was touched by the Holy Spirit during Christian revivals and when he went to rock concerts.
“I’d go to Christian revivals and be moved by the Holy Spirit, and I’d go to rock concerts and feel the same fervor,” Breitart quotes Pitt’s statement to Parade. “Then I’d be told, ‘That’s the Devil’s music! Don’t partake in that!’ I wanted to experience things religion said not to experience.
“However, the 51-year-old actor maintained that his father taught him the value of working hard. His father, Bill Pitt, who managed a trucking business in Springfield, Missouri, always reminded him to preserve his integrity and develop his ability to do things for himself. His mother used to work as a family counselor, the International Business Times reports.
It is worth noting that Pitt’s wife, Angelina Jolie, believes that a higher being exists. She says World War II hero Louis Zamperini influenced her spiritual beliefs. The late war hero is the inspiration behind her movie”Unbroken,” the report details.
Despite their difference in religious belief, Brad Pitt thinks they are doing great inthe parenting department. He says his wife and six kids have made him a better person and helped him excel in his career even more.
