Brad, who is engaged in a legal battle with ex-wife Angelina Jolie — who is suing her for selling her stake in the wine business they’ve had together since 2008 — talked about his plans for the future in an interview with GQ. Earlier in March, Brad won his first Academy Award for Acting – for Best Supporting Actor – for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood as Cliff Booth. He previously won an Oscar in 2014 as producer of the best picture winner, 12 Years a Slave.

“I consider myself on my last leg… This last semester or trimester. What’s this section going to be? And how do I want to design that?… I’m one of those creatures that speaks through art. I just always want to create. If If I’m not making money, I’m going to die somehow,” Brad said.

Brad went on to talk about life after the lockdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. He spoke about coping with his ‘low-grade depression’ and being able to experience ‘moments of joy’.

“I think joy has been a newer discovery, later in life… I used to move with the flow, drifting one way, and the next… I think I spent years in mild depression “And it wasn’t until I came to terms with it that I tried to embrace all sides of myself—the beauty and the ugly—that I was able to capture those moments of joy,” Brad said.

Brad’s next Bullet Train will premiere on August 5. The first official Bullet Train trailer was released on March 2 and introduced the main characters and setting.
