Brad Pitt became an atheist because he developed "Christian guilt" from his upbringing, the actor revealed in a recent interview.
Speaking to the Telegraph on Saturday, Brad Pitt expressed his views on religion and recalled how he was raised as a Southern Baptist by his father. However, he grew up as an atheist because of the "Christian guilt" instilled in him, according to Breitbart.
The Hollywood actor said he chose not to stick to any religion later on in life due to the Christian guilt that always dictated what he should and should not do. In 2007, Pitt told Parade in an interview how he would feel the same emotion when he was touched by the Holy Spirit during Christian revivals and when he went to rock concerts. more >>
Back in September, "Man of Steel" actor and Durrell Global Ambassador Henry Cavill paid the Durrell Wildlife Park a visit to learn more about the Livingstone's fruit bat, a species that is in serious risk of extinction in the wild.
The British actor met and fed several of the bats, including one named Claudia, in their enclosure. He took some photos of the bats before receiving a certificate from park officials, who thanked him for supporting their cause.
And it seems that after spending some time with the creatures, at least one of them made a real connection with the 32-year-old actor. "You heard it here first, I have officially adopted Ben … the Bat!" Cavill says in a video posted to the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust YouTube channel. more >>
