Fact Check: Brad Pitt Did NOT Reveal Elite Hollywood Pedophiles Control America Fake Interview

Did Brad Pitt reveal "Elite Hollywood Pedophiles Control America?" No, that's not true. The big screen's hunkiest leading man did not drop the bombshell news that he believes Hollywood's elites are pedophiles that control America. The outrageous claim has gone viral again, but the story is old and not true.

The story reappeared as an article (archived here) where it was published by Social-Consciousness.com on July 17, 2017 under the title "Brad Pitt Reveals: Elite Hollywood Pedophiles Control America." It opened:


Movie star speaks out against pedophilia rings. Following the recent spate of pedophile arrests in California, movie star Brad Pitt has revealed the true depths of Hollywood pedophili in a shocking exposé. As a 30-year seasoned veteran in the movie business, Pitt speaks about his experiences after witnessing the dark side of the entertainment industry first hand.


The article on Social-Consciousness.com has gone viral on Facebook again, even though it was originally published in 2017. They credited NeonNettle.com as the source for the information but the story has been removed and the message when you click on the link takes you to a page that only says:

Oops! It Looks like the page you are looking for has been removed.

There is no evidence that Pitt ever gave an interview discussing pedophilia and ever spoke about the Illuminati running a child sex ring for Hollywood super stars.

Snopes.com debunked the story by NeonNettle.com when it was first published in 2017 with a scathing take down of the site, noting the site has published "debunked, bizarre and outright false claims."

The article on Neon Nettle does not say where or with whom Pitt supposedly gave the quotes to or the publication that published the story.

Here is more of the article as published on Social-Consciousness.com:

Mr. Pitt describes how the whole TV and film industry is run around a culture of grooming children for child trafficking networks that reach across the United States and beyond, into the upper echelons of the political spectrum and societal hierarchy: "You think Hollywood is about making movies? That's just a byproduct: It's about money, and more importantly, power and control. The people who run Hollywood, also run America, and most of the world, and they don't care about movies. You've heard of the Illuminati right? The secret societies, the politicians, the bankers and the media - they're the ones running these pedophile rings, and they're the ones that run the world, and it all goes back to Hollywood. Kids wanna be in movies, or should I say; parents want their kids to be in movies, and they'll do anything to get them famous" When asked why Hollywood was targetted by these Elite networks, he said; "It's the parents. It's the American dream to be famous and the parents will do anything to get them there. Have you ever met the mom of a child actor? They're nuts. It's easy pickings, and it's not just movies, it's TV, music... it's showbiz. The parents are basically selling their kids souls for fame."

The article claimed Pitt, who was once married to Angelina Jolie and has six children with her, three adopted and three biological described the dark side of Hollywood child trafficking.

Mr. Pitt goes on to expose the motivation behind the Elite child trafficking and how the children are given roles to influence other children to push agenda. He describes how children are used as political currency whilst the parents turn a blind eye in the hope their offspring will be in the next box office smash: "One of these [Elites] buys into a movie. A thousand kids go for the lead role, and 100 of them would probably work. Some young kid with a pushy mom turns up who will do anything to get the part. The kid gets sent off to some guy that runs a TV network. The network pushes the movie, and the first guy makes loads of money when it's a hit. The TV guy will never say a bad thing about the movie because movie guy knows what TV guy did with that young kid. The same thing happens with politicians and bankers and the rest of them. It's all backroom deals with kids as bargaining chips."

According to the article, Pitt wouldn't name offenders in Hollywood.

When asked about who these "Hollywood players" are, Pitt was reluctant to name names, saying, "I'm from the land of the free and easy lawsuit", but said he was confident these high-level child abusers will soon see justice: "The media will never expose the truth as they're part of it. It's the independent media that will expose this. The internet is a wonderful thing and the free flow of information is bringing it all to the surface now. They're losing their hold over the American people, and people everywhere, and they know it. It's just a matter of time before it all comes out."

Jolie was dragged into the derogatory claims.

Brad Pitt has had a rocky past with secret societies, after a leaked video of his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, in which she discussed Hollywood Illuminati rituals, went viral. Mr. Pitt responded to the video by saying he was "sickened" by the revelations.

A video was published by U.K. tabloid The Sun that showed old footage of a young Angelina Jolie in 1999 talking about sex and S&M, but not Hollywood Illuminati rituals.

The only legitimate reference to Pitt being "sickened" was a quote from Entertainment Tonight in 2018 amid their divorce. The TV show reported that he was "sickened" by Jolie and her legal team for letting their child custody case be played out in public.
