Brad Pitt: 'I'm a paranoid individual'

Help

Actor Brad Pitt has spoken to the BBC's Lizo Mzimba about his new film Killing Them Softly, his support for President Barack Obama, marriage to Angelina Jolie and allegations that his phone was hacked.

He said he was a "paranoid individual to begin with" and felt like phone hacking had been going on since he "first made the cover of a tabloid".

Brad Pitt's new film is a crime thriller set in the financial crisis of 2008 and sees him play the role of hitman Jackie Cogan.

On the topic of this year's presidential election Pitt said that he was an "Obama supporter" but he was "trying hard not to be cynical about it".
