We doubt there are too many men who can claim that they were caught by Mike Tyson sleeping with his wife and walked away in one piece, but apparently, Brad Pitt is ONE of them!
The volatile boxer sat down for an incredibly REVEALING interview on In Depth With Graham Bensinger, during which he revealed that while he was in the midst of divorcing his ex-wife Robin Givens in the '80s, he walked in on she and the then-up-and-coming actor getting down - even though he was over there to get some in the first place, too!
"I was doing a divorce but I—we—every day, before I would go to my lawyer's office to say she's a pig and stealing, I would go to…her house to have sex with her. This particular day, someone beat me to the punch. And I guess Brad got there earlier than I did. I was mad as hell. I was going to…you should have saw his face when he saw me."
Oh, what we wouldn't have given to be a fly on the wall during THAT encounter!
Of course, that's not ALL Tyson opened up about during the sit down!
On a sadder note, he also has come clean about his well-received cameo in the instant smash The Hangover, as he now admits that the entire shoot he was high on cocaine!
But thankfully, as he expresses, stars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Ed Helms were still more than supportive of his troubles:
"I was a mess. I was overweight. I was a pig, high on cocaine. They had to know I was messed up. I couldn't talk. I had the cocaine talk…So those guys are just beautiful people. They had my back, and I appreciate that and stuff, then they asked me to come back [for The Hangover, Part 2]."
Well, we imagine the actors all knew he was going through something, and are glad that they were so willing to be there for him so they could finish the shoot!
The movie just wouldn't have been the same without him!
And while we can imagine some of this information is difficult for him to talk about now that he's cleaned up his act, we appreciate his honesty, and continues to use his experiences as a platform to try and help others going through similar struggles!
Stay strong, Mike!
