Brad Pitt Attends "The House I Live In" L.A. Screening
Coming out to support a movie in which he served as an executive producer, Brad Pitt attended the "The House I Live In" Los Angeles Screening at Sundance Cinema on Friday (October 12).
The "Moneyball" star dressed in all earth tones, with a t-shirt, blazer, and khakis, as he introduced director Eugene Jarecki's documentary about the war on drugs.
During his intro, the 48-year-old actor admitted, "My drug days are long since passed but it's certainly true that I could probably land in any city in any state and get you whatever you wanted. I could find anything you were looking for. Give me 24 hours or so. And yet we still support this charade called the drug war."
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Brad spoke about what he feels would solve the country's drug problems.
He explained, "The only way to end the war on drugs is to take the profit out of it. I know this comes with a whole other host of problems and I don't know if I'm actually presenting it as a reality, but we have to look at the what-if-everything-was-legal and people were allowed to make their own choices. And we were treating it less as a criminal issue and more as a sickness. People do drugs to escape. We're not talking about experimentation. People with long-term drug use are escaping."
