Brad Pitt has claimed for several years that he suffers from prosopagnosia, a disease that prevents him from recognizing faces.
Brad Pitt doesn’t remember faces and it wouldn’t be because he doesn’t really care about the people he meets. Anyway, that’s what the actor revealed in an interview with GQ. According to the magazine, the star believes she suffers from a neurological condition called prosopagnosia or face blindness.
Even if the diagnosis is not formally made, Brad Pitt is convinced that he suffers from it, and reveals that the condition is very disabling on a daily basis, as it gives him an image of a distant and arrogant person. “No one believes me. I would like to meet someone like this!” he told GQ magazine.
Brad Pitt had already mentioned the topic in 2013, in an interview with Esquire magazine, in which he revealed that he sometimes prefers to stay at home because of it. “It’s a mystery to me. I can’t hold back my face. Lots of people hate me because they think I don’t respect them.”
Physiotherapists will have difficulty recognizing the faces of people they have already met even several times, and even have difficulty recognizing their family members, close friends, and even themselves, according to a report by faceblind.org, which focuses on research from US and English doctors on the topic, Scientists explain that this abnormality can be congenital or caused by a stroke, traumatic brain injury, or some neurodegenerative diseases.
