What do you think of this by Brad Pitt?

Asked by KNOWITALL (14655 points ) December 27th, 2013

“My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and problems with children.

She has lost 30 pounds and weighed about 90 pounds in her 35 years. She got very skinny, and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs.

She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the morning and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of break up.

Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, she was poking her head, and stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role.

I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon…But then I decided to act on it.
After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on the earth.

She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her shoulders.

I began to pamper her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised her and pleased her every minute. I gave her lots of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends.

You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became even better than before. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and she loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she CAN love that much. And then I realized one thing: The woman is the reflection of her man. If you love her to the point of madness, she will become it.“

Brad Pitt said that? I find that hard to believe.

I would bet the farm that Brad did not write this.

I am trying to imagine what jammed rib nerves are as well as what “poking her head” could signify.

It bothers me because it is not caring of her and whatever mental illness he is describing, but pandering to her false sense of herself. And “The woman is the reflection of her man” is really a load of crap.

This is People magazine-type-romance bullshit at it’s worst.

(And I agree with @jca and @gailcalled that this was not something Brad Pitt actually wrote.)

So snopes says Brad didn’t write it, you’re right!

That being said, I appreciate the sentiments myself.

That partners should be loving, caring and tender? It’s not an original idea. Personally, I wold go mad with a S/O who lived just for me, pleased me every minute, and incorporated “all themes around” me. I’d run for the hills.

This entire thing reeks of the objectification of women. In this, the woman is not a person, but a wilting flower that just needs water and fertiliser.

You can’t love mental illness away. Good luck with those sentiments. lol

Yeah, Brad Pitt didn’t write this. The message is nice, I guess, but the writing could certainly be better.

I agree with @ragingloli

I’m a person, not a machine. I don’t need or want you to feel the obligation to fix me. That’s just confirmation that you see me as broken.

I’d be willing to tell Angie any fucking thing she wants to hear, just to get into her knickers.
Only one condition, don’t tell the wife cause she’d have my guts for garters.
