Us Weekly reports that both Brad Pitt and his Once Upon A Time In Hollywood co-star Leonardo DiCaprio were the guests on a recent episode of Marc Maron’s WTF podcast. And during their one-hour in-depth interview, Brad spoke about something we’re all pretty familiar with: Brad Pitt’s personal life. Which, according to Brad, is a disaster. I mean, is he wrong? This is the man who has been mired in a next-level divorce battle against Angelina Jolie for over three years and counting. Brad’s personal life is such a disaster, I’m surprised he hasn’t made a shit-quality home for it.
An appearance by Brad Pitt on WTF seems like a pretty big score, but according to Brad, he’s the world’s biggest fan of Marc Maron’s TV series Maron, and has watched the four-season series three times now. Leo even chimed in, saying that Brad wouldn’t stop talking about Maron while they were filming. I don’t know what to do with this information besides sit here puzzled. Brad loves old crank Marc Maron. But he also loves Kanye West’s culty church services, and he’s very good friends with Maeby from Arrested Development? Who even is present-day Brad Pitt? It’s like his life has been hooked up to some random arbitrary hobby generator. Next thing we’re going to learn is that he’s recently taken up felting, and that his current favorite book is the user manual for a 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Marc asked Brad and Leo what it’s like to be the subjects of so much public gossip. Marc is clearly not familiar with Leo’s dating life. Leo says that gossip about himself usually peaks while he’s promoting a movie, and then it quiets down again. For Brad though, he pretty much knows why people like to talk about Brad Pitt all the time.
Brad: “I’m a little disgruntled with [Leo]. I’m just like, trash mag fodder. Because of my disaster of a personal life, probably, most likely.”
Leo: “A very exciting personal life…Like Lil Kim said, the paparazzi is going to get you one way or another.”
Us Weekly proved Brad’s trash mag theory by adding in a little gossipy mention from November by a source that claims Brad has “lost count” of the amount of holidays and special events he’s missed with his kids, due to Angelina’s alleged meddling. As if any of us needed a reminder that things aren’t great with Brad and his kids! We know this. Maybe in 2020, Brad will catch a bit of a break in the gossip department. And hopefully Leo is wrong about the paparazzi always being there. I don’t think my heart can take it to see shots of Kanye turning Brad away with a Russell Stover heart-shaped box in his hands, because Kanye’s wealthy throat doesn’t swallow that cheap CVS garbage.
