Hollywood star Brad Pitt has credited his friend, actor Bradley Cooper, for helping him get over his alcohol addiction.
The "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" actor, who won the best supporting actor at the National Board of Review awards, gave a special mention to presenter Cooper in his acceptance speech.
"Bradley just put his daughter to bed and rushed over here to do this. He's a sweetheart. I got sober because of this guy, and every day has been happier ever since," Pitt said.
The actor spent a year and a half in Alcoholics Anonymous after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from him in 2016. Cooper also quit alcohol in his early 20s.
In 2017, Pitt gave a very open interview to GQ magazine, in which he opened up about his past substance abuse issues and said he was living a clean life post-split from actress Angelina Jolie. At the time, he shared that his "kids are everything," adding that the drastic lifestyle change was not leaving him suicidal. Instead, the actor said he was feeling nothing but hopeful since getting clean.
Pitt appeared at the Golden Globe Awards, where he took home the trophy for the best supporting actor for the Quentin Tarantino film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
