‘It would always be at night, in the dark’: Brad Pitt admits he was tormented by a recurring dream of being violently stabbed for years after split from Angelina Jolie

  • The actor married Hollywood star Jolie in a private ceremony at their jointly owned French chateau in 2014 
  • But in 2016 Jolie initiated divorce proceedings following a mid-flight fracas with their adopted son Maddox 
  • And the actor says the same violent dream tormented his sleep for years amid the fallout that followed their separation

Brad Pitt says he was haunted by a recurring dream in which he was fatally stabbed following his acrimonious separation and divorce from Angelina Jolie.

The actor married Jolie in a private ceremony at their jointly owned French chateau in 2014, nine years after falling for the Hollywood star on the set of action-thriller Mr & Mrs. Smith. 

But in 2016 Jolie initiated divorce proceedings following a mid-flight fracas, during which an ‘inebriated’ Pitt launched into a heated argument with the couple’s adopted son Maddox.

And the actor says the same violent dream tormented his sleep for years amid the inevitable fallout that followed in the wake of their separation, with the couple’s divorce finalised in 2019.

He told the latest edition of British GQ:  ‘For a solid four or five years there, the most predominant dream I would experience would be getting jumped and stabbed. 

‘It would always be at night, in the dark, and I would be walking down a sidewalk in a park or along a boardwalk and as I’d pass under an Exorcist-like street lamp, someone would jump out of the abyss and stab me in the ribs.

‘Or I’d notice I was being followed and then another flanked me and I realized I was trapped, and they meant me grave harm. Or being chased through a house with a kid I’d help escape but got pinned in on the deck—and stabbed. Always stabbed. And I would awake in a terror. 

‘I didn’t understand why it/they would want to hurt me. This stopped a year or two ago only when I started going straight back into the dream and asking simply why?’ 

Pitt lived with Juliette Lewis from 1990 until 1993, after which he was with Jitka Pohlodek from 1993 until 1994. Then came Gwyneth Paltrow; they were together from 1994 until 1997. In 1998 he fell for Aniston, whom he was married to from 2000 until 2005.

However the couple divorced soon after Pitt crossed paths with Jolie on the set of action-thriller Mr & Mrs. Smith, in which they played an on-screen couple. 

In 2006 the actress confirmed she was pregnant with his first child, daughter Shiloh – a double blow for Aniston, whose marriage to Pitt bore no children – with twins Knox and Vivienne following just two years later.

They married in a private ceremony at their jointly owned French chateau in 2014, nine years after falling for one another, but by 2016 Jolie had initiated divorce proceedings, to be finalised three years later. 

Mitigating factors included a heated argument between an ‘inebriated’ Pitt and adopted son Maddox aboard a Los Angeles bound private jet. The actor was later cleared of any wrongdoing in November 2016.
