Brad Pitt Quit Smoking Pot For His Kids
"I certainly had my day," Pitt, 45, told HBO's Bill Maher in an interview Friday after the Real Time host called the actor's role "one of the best stoner performances."
Maher -- who was grilling the actor on his upcoming flick Inglorious Basterds -- also recounted a New Year's Eve party at which he says he witnessed Pitt rolling "the most perfect" joints he had ever seen. Pitt's cheeky response? "I'm an artist."
Pitt admits he kicked the habit for his six kids -- Maddox, 7, Pax, 5, Zahara, 4, Shiloh, 3, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 1 -- whom he has with partner Angelina Jolie.
"I'm a dad now. You want to be alert and my eyes used to glaze over when I did that," he told Maher.
The actor recently told Parade magazine his smoking got in the way of work. "I liked to smoke a bit of grass at the time, and I became very sheltered. Then I got bored," he told the magazine. "I was turning into a damn doughnut, really. So I moved as far away from that as I could. I was done."
