BRAD PITT admits to Hollywood news that he usuallyÂ canâ€™t remember peopleâ€™s faces right after just talking to them!
How weird is that?
In his revealing interview with Esquire, the â€œWorld War Zâ€ actor reveals that he may be suffering from an actual disorder called face blindnessâ€”or â€œprosopagnosiaâ€â€”that makes it almost impossible for him to recognize familiar faces.
Yes, not even after heâ€™s had a â€œreal conversationâ€ with them!
Pitt tells the magazineâ€™s June/July issue:
â€œSo many people hate me because they think Iâ€™m disrespecting them.â€
If you thought that just flat out asking someone if heâ€™s met them before would solve the problem, you were dead wrong.
In fact, it only made things worse for poor Brad!Â He explains:
â€œPeople were more offended. Every now and then, someone will give me context, and Iâ€™ll say, â€˜Thank you for helping me.â€™ But I piss more people off. You get this thing, like, â€˜Youâ€™re being egotistical. Youâ€™re being conceited.â€™ But itâ€™s a mystery to me, man. I canâ€™t grasp a face, and yet I come from such a design/aesthetic point of view.â€
To be sure, Brad is planning to have himself checked. Meanwhile, heâ€™s trying to avoid social gatherings in order not to embarrass himself and hurt other people.
â€œThatâ€™s why I stay at home.â€
Either heâ€™s right or heâ€™s just making excuses for forgetting peopleâ€™s names, which is mildlyÂ common for big Hollywood stars given the amount of people that they meet on a daily basis.
Which one do you think it is?
