Brad Pitt Says Friend Kanye West's Sunday Service Is 'Really Special'
The actor joined Kanye West and his family for the weekly celebration earlier this month
Earlier this month, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor made his second appearance at one of West’s weekly spiritual gatherings in Watts, California. While speaking to Entertainment Tonight about his upcoming film, Ad Astra, he revealed that the Sunday Service experience was “really special.”
“I think he was doing something really special there,” Pitt, 55, told ET on Monday. “It’s a pure celebration of life and people. It’s really delightful. It really is.”
Pitt appears on the October cover of GQ where he opens up about his spiritual and religious journey — and the evolution of his beliefs — revealing that he had been searching for something that felt right for a long time.
“Oh man, I’ve gone through everything,” Pitt says. “Like, I cling to religion. I grew up with Christianity. Always questioned it, but it worked at times.”
He continues, “And then when I got on my own, I completely left it and I called myself agnostic. Tried a few spiritual things but didn’t feel right.”
Pitt then touches on the more “rebellious” phase of his life, when he decided to turn away from religion all together.
“Then I called myself an atheist for a while, just kind of being rebellious,” he admits. “I wasn’t really. But I kinda labeled myself that for a while. It felt punk rock enough.”
However, he ultimately found something he believed in.
“I found myself coming back around to just belief in — I hate to use the word spirituality, but just belief in that we’re all connected,” he says.
One person Pitt didn’t get a chance to connect with at the rapper’s Sunday Service was Kendall Jenner, who recently revealed that she fled the scene in a panic when she realized Pitt was present at the event.
“I literally left early,” she said during her The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon appearance on Sept. 5. “I just saw Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, and it was so good and he just gets better with age. So I was like, ‘I gotta go.’”
