Los Angeles: Brad Pitt says he was wasting his life on drugs before he met Angelina Jolie. The actor admits he now lives for his partner and their six children.

"For a long time I thought I did too much damage - drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter and wanted to see things. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany - a decision not to squander my opportunities," thesun.co.uk quoted Pitt as saying.

“I have a handful of close friends and I have my family - and I haven’t known life to be any happier,” said Pitt.

The actor also said he loves the mayhem that comes with having a large family.

“I always thought that if I wanted to do a family, I wanted to do it big. I wanted there to be chaos in the house. There’s constant chatter in our house, whether it’s giggling or screaming or crying or banging. I love it,” he added.
