In a new interview with the AP, Brad Pitt acknowledges he's been in some dark places lately—of his drinking problem, he says, "I've got no secrets. I've got nothing to hide"—but he insists things aren't that dark. "I'm not suicidal or something," he says, per Rolling Stone. "There's still much beauty in the world and a lot of love. And a lot of love to be given. It's all right. It's just life." He adds that his children help to keep depression at bay: "Kids are everything. Kids are your life. They're taking all the focus, as they should anyway." (More Brad Pitt stories.)
