According to Brad Pitt, the image of a restrained person is directly related to his state of health. The actor thinks that “blind face syndrome” needs the same prosopagnosia.
Prosopagnosia is a neurological disorder that causes impaired ability to recognize faces. Brad Pitt says he wants to remember people’s faces, but is ashamed when it doesn’t come out and no one believes him.
Prosopagnosia can develop after brain damage or appear at birth as a genetic disease. Even children with prosognosia have no experience of guessing the human face and can never acquire it.
Brad Pitt also spoke about the disease in 2013, noting that he had insulted a number of people because he was unable to recognize and remember their faces.
“I hate a lot of people because they think I’re going to disrespect them. But the whole secret is that I just can not recognize the face and I’m planning to investigate all of this on a medical level,” Brad Pitt said.
Brad Pitt also mentioned that he was still able to maintain a good human reputation for a long time before he married Angelina Jolie. Recall that in 2016, Angelina Jolie accused Brad Pitt of child abuse, but the court acquitted Pitt.
