Brad Pitt Gave Up Alcohol Because He Was "Boozing Too Much" and Started Drinking This Instead

It's definitely a healthier option.

It's pretty safe to say that Brad Pitt has been having a rough few months. But after laying low following his messy split from Angelina Jolie, he's now out and about again, looking slimmer and more sober—literally.

A recent interview with GQ reveals that Pitt has been going to therapy and cleaning up his lifestyle. And part of that includes giving up alcohol. "I mean I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know—things I wasn't dealing with. I was boozing too much. It's just become a problem," Pitt admitted in the interview.

"I enjoy wine very, very much, but I just ran it to the ground. I had to step away for a minute. And truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good," he added.

It's never easy quitting cold turkey, but Pitt seems to have managed it smoothly. So what does he drink instead of alcohol? "Cranberry juice and fizzy water. I've got the cleanest urinary tract in all of L.A., I guarantee you!" he said.

Pitt has also been making a lot of matcha at home because he "loves the whole ritual of it," according to GQ. 

Cranberry juice, fizzy water, and matcha—the next big L.A. cleanse? It's actually not too far off from Padma Lakshmi's "Cranberry Drano."
