Brad Pitt felt inspired to create art following his “misery”-filled split from ex-wife Angelina Jolie.

The “Bullet Train” star, 58, told The Financial Times on Wednesday that when he was newly separated, he turned to two of his friends, Australian singer Nick Cave and British artist Thomas Houseago, for companionship, since they had been dealing with their own issues.

“Our mutual misery became comic,” Pitt said. “And out of this misery came a flame of joy in my life. I always wanted to be a sculptor; I’d always wanted to try it.”

The “Troy” star said his artwork is all about “self-reflection.”

“I was looking at my own life and really concentrating on owning my own s–t: where was I complicit in failures in my relationships, where have I misstepped,” he added.

“For me, it was born out of ownership of what I call a radical inventory of self, getting really brutally honest with me, and taking account of those I may have hurt.”
