Cannabis turned Pitt into `doughnut`

Los Angeles: Actor Brad Pitt admits that addiction to cannabis had turned him into a recluse.

"I got really sick of myself at the end of the 1990s. I was hiding out from the celebrity thing, 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," quoted Pitt as saying.

Last year, the 48-year-old star, who was nominated for the best actor Oscar, even quit smoking cigarettes regularly after he was caught puffing by two of his children -- daughters Zahara and Shiloh.

Pitt currently raises six kids with partner Angelina Jolie, who is reportedly pregnant with another of their child.
