The 49-year-old actor made the revelations in an interview with Esquire US magazine where he candidly spoke about his life before settling down with his fiancée Angelina Jolie.

He told the magazine: 'For a long time I thought I did too much damage - drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter.

“A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years f***ing off.

“But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change.

“This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany.”

Brad and Jennifer, who wed in 2000, had a very public marriage breakdown in 2005. Brad had of course met Angelina Jolie on the set of ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ in 2004.

Angelina Jolie reportedly made Brad Pitt see his full potential . Copyright [Wenn]The magazine also spoke to Jean Black, Brad’s make-up artist since 1990, who revealed that when the actor met Angelina, his outlook on life changed.

He said: “I think Brad was ready to soar when he met Angie.

“This is not to say anything negative about Jennifer. I was part of that and I know that he and Jen are very good friends and he cared deeply for her.

“But in Angie he saw a very adventurous person who was grabbing onto life and taking it to its nth degree. It was intriguing as I felt Brad had that in him and wanted to unleash it.”

Brad and Angelina are rumoured to wed very soon following the actress’ revelation earlier this month that she underwent a preventative  double mastectomy after she found out she had an 87% chance of developing breast cancer.
