Brad Pitt Cut This Habit for Good To Feel Great at 58

He's like a brand new man.

For fans of Brad Pitt, we have some bad news—the long-time Hollywood star may retire soon.

"I consider myself on my last leg," he said in a new GQ interview. But Pitt certainly doesn't look retirement-ready. Far from it, in fact, with his smooth skin, suave hairstyle, and fit body. How could we forget his muscles in his most recent film The Lost City?

To look that good at 58 years old, Pitt must have a few secrets up his sleeve. One that we already knew is that the star doesn't drink. After splitting from Angelina Jolie in 2016, the A-lister joined Alcoholics Anonymous to get sober.

Man breaking up a cigarette

Eat This, Not That! reporting revealed that giving up alcohol can have plenty of health benefits, including better sleep, weight loss, and improved mood and productivity. It's no surprise then that in Pitt's 2020 National Board of Review Awards acceptance speech, he claimed to be happier than ever since quitting his habit.

While Pitt has been sober for a while now, he gave up another habit during the pandemic: smoking. "I'm just at the age when nothing good comes from it," he told GQ. The celeb tried limiting his cigarettes per day, but he ultimately went cold turkey. "I don't have that ability to do just one or two a day," he says. "It's not in my makeup. I'm all in," he said in his GQ interview.

Pitt used to have a cigarette with his coffee every morning, but those days are gone. Eat This, Not That! reported that quitting smoking is one of the top ways to live longer. That's because smoking can cause heart disease, bronchitis, asthma, tooth decay, wrinkles, and even an increased risk of cancer.

The Fight Club actor is clearly prioritizing his health, and it shows! Want to know more about how celebs stay young? Check out Healthy Living Secrets Cher Follows To Feel Amazing At 76.
