Brad Pitt: We're Hiding From the World

If Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie want a paparazzi-free moment they literally have to "hide behind some walls."

They’re the most famous couple on the planet (sorry Will & Kate, they came first), and while being part of Hollywood royalty comes with perks, it can also suck at times.

Brad admits its taken him over a decade to become comfortable with his celebrity status, and he spent most of that time “hiding.” Sure you did.

He said: "It took me a good decade of hiding in my house and not going outside to even, like, get my arms around this idea of celebrity, where suddenly people are looking for you to pick your nose or get a shot of you kissing some woman.

"It's a very discombobulating thing. But Angie and I have got it down pretty well. We have to hide behind some walls, but we're good."

Instead of hiding behind walls they hide in exotic countries. But the paps still manage to find them.

Despite being happy with his life now, Brad admits he still struggles with his views on religion.

He told the Guardian newspaper: "I grew up in the f**king buckle of the Bible belt. This idea of an all-powerful, watching being that's controlling our moves and giving us a chance to say he's the greatest so we get into some eternal heaven – that just doesn't work for me, man. I got a real problem with it.

"I see the value of religion and what it offers to people as a cushion and I don't want to step on that. On the other hand, I've seen where I grew up how it becomes separatist, and I get quite aggravated and antagonistic."
