Brad Pitt would 'actually like to' marry Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt has confirmed that he would "actually like to" marry Angelina Jolie.

The Hollywood couple had stated that they would not tie the knot until everyone had the right to, including gay couples, but he says they may have to backtrack on that.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Pitt stated that making that final commitment means a lot to his family.

"We'd actually like to, and it seems to mean more and more to our kids," Pitt, 48, said.

"We made this declaration some time ago that we weren't going to do it till everyone can. But I don't think we'll be able to hold out."

But when pushed on whether he had actually asked his partner of seven years to be his wife, Pitt was more reticent in his response.

"I'm not going to go any further," the Best Actor Oscar nominee for Moneyball said.

"[But] it means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me too, to make that kind of commitment."

Meanwhile, Pitt has revealed that he "smoked way too much dope" in the late 90s.

He opened up to the Hollywood Reporter about his drug use and admitted that marijuana had a negative impact on his life.

The actor admits that he went through a dark period as he became famous 20 years ago.

"I was hiding out from the celebrity thing," he recalled. "I was smoking way too much dope."

"I was sitting on the couch and just turning into a doughnut and I really got irritated with myself."

Pitt said he pulled himself together because he knew "better than this" but also revealed that he had his fair share of dark moments.

"I used to deal with depression, but I don't know, not this decade - maybe last decade," he said candidly.

"But that's also figuring out who you are. I see it as a great education, as one of the season or a semester.

"This semester I was majoring in depression. I was doing the same thing every night and numbing myself to sleep - the same routine. Couldn't wait to get home and hide out. But that feeling of unease was growing and one night I just said, 'This is a waste'."

The father-of-six said he got his wake-up call during trips to Yugoslavia and Morocco where he saw "poverty to an extreme I had never witnessed before".

"I just quit. I stopped grass then - I mean, pretty much - and decided to get off the couch."
