January 26, 2012 - London

Brad Pitt, who, who is in the running to be named Best Actor at the Academy Awards, has revealed that he almost turned into a "doughnut" from smoking too much marijuana.

According to the 'Moneyball' star, his fame led him to depression in the late 1990s.

"I got really sick of myself at the end of the 1990s," the Daily Mail quoted Pitt as telling the Hollywood Reporter.

"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," he said.

The 48-year-old actor opened up about his former drug use in the latest issue of the magazine.

Revealing snippets of the interview, the magazine's executive features editor Stephen Galloway commented on the actor's drug abuse.

"He said it's like he had a semester of depression.

"He hasn't had that in this decade, but he definitely wrestled with it in the past," Galloway added.
