The Song Brad Pitt Listens To After A Breakup

"I tell my love to wreck it all. Cut out all the ropes and let me fall."

The ultimate self-indulgent indie breakup song about an unappreciative lover and the quiet heartbreak that comes with a failing relationship (you'll show her/him!), we've all been guilty of hitting repeat on "Skinny Love" during a tough time.

So it's good to know that even Brad Pitt is no different...

Currently in the process of that divorce, a source told Entertainment Tonight that Pitt has taken up sculpture with friend, British artist Thomas Houseago, "spending up to 15 hours a day in the studio working until the early hours of the morning and listening to playlists of sad songs."

He added that the playlist "includes songs by indie singer Bon Iver, and breakup track 'Just To Satisfy You' by Waylon Jennings.

Despite this sad and cliche news (sculpture, Brad? Really?), there could be respite in this dark time for Brad, as Justin Vernon, the man behind Bon Iver, has learned of his melancholy and might be angling for a collab?


Stay strong, Brad. We can't wait for the duet.

And here's 'Skinny Love' again, in case you fancy staring forlornly out of the window at work.
