Brad Pitt Releases Statement Amid Angelina Jolie Divorce: “I’m Focused on My Family Situation”

It seems Brad Pitt is putting his career on hold to instead get his “family situation” back on track amid his surprise divorce from Angelina Jolie.

Earlier this week, the 52-year-old actor revealed he is skipping the Wednesday, Sept. 28 premiere of his new documentary, Voyage of Time, so he can remain “focused” on his marriage and six kids.

“[Terrence Malick‘s] Voyage of Time is an incredibly beautiful and unique experiential IMAX film for children and families chronicling the birth of time. I’m very grateful to be part of such a fascinating and educational project, but I’m currently focused on my family situation and don’t want to distract attention away from this extraordinary film, which I encourage everyone to see,” Brad said in a statement, according to People.
