Brad Pitt was raised as a Southern Baptist, but apparently, his faith didn't stick.
The 45-year-old actor doesn't believe in God, he told Bild.com.
"No, no, no!," he declared, when asked if he believes in a higher power, or if he was spiritual. "I'm probably 20 percent atheist and 80 percent agnostic. I don't think anyone really knows. You'll either find out or not when you get there, until then there's no point thinking about it."
Pitt doesn't seem to have a problem with others believing though.
"Religion works," the actor said in a 2007 interview with Parade.
He adds, "I know there's comfort there, a crash pad. It's something to explain the world and tell you there is something bigger than you, and it is going to be all right in the end."
