Brad Pitt‘s personal life is, well, the pits, according to the actor himself.
The “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” star joked with fellow guest Leonardo DiCaprio on an episode of Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast — which was released on Monday — about being a target for the tabloids.
When DiCaprio, 45, said he doesn’t have paparazzi following him as much as they did right after “Titanic,” Pitt, 56, responded, “I’m a little disgruntled with you now that I hear that.”
He added, “I’m just, like, trash mag fodder. I don’t know … because of my disaster of a personal life, probably.”
Pitt also mentioned the media’s interest in his love life on Sunday night when he accepted the Golden Globe for best supporting actor in a motion picture.
“I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn’t because anyone I stand next to they say I’m dating,” he joked in his speech. “It’d just be awkward.”
Pitt’s eldest son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, also hinted at a strained relationship with his father that month.
When asked if Pitt would visit him on campus at Yonsei University in South Korea, Maddox said, “I don’t know about that [or] what’s happening.”
Maddox and Pitt reportedly had a falling out in 2016 over an incident that took place on a private plane.
A source close to Pitt denied the actor got physical, but previously told Page Six, “Brad may have been drinking, and admits that he yelled at his son, but he insists he did not hit him or attempt to harm him. It was a confrontation that got out of hand.”
Jolie, 44, and Pitt also share five other children: Pax, 16, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
