According to Dailymailonline reports, in recent months the 53-year-old has been locking himself away in a Los Angeles art studio while nursing a broken heart following his split from Angelina Jolie.
As the father-of-six arrived at his creative bolthole this week, the actor often described as the ‘sexiest man alive’ looked a shadow of his former self.
It seems his divorce from Angelina, 41, and the ugly legal war that followed has taken a toll.
He didn’t attend the Oscars, despite being one of the producers on Best Picture winner Moonlight. He instead spent the day in the studio and later watched the ceremony on TV, according to insiders.
Angelina recently returned to Los Angeles after taking her six children – Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, Knox, Maddox and Pax – to Europe where she spoke in London on behalf of greater efforts to document and prosecute crimes of rape and sexual violence in war.
She also spoke in strong defense of the UN during a ceremony in Geneva honoring Sergio Vieira de Mello, the U.N. envoy to Iraq who died in a 2003 bombing attack in Baghdad.
The Oscar-winning actress also recently took her children to Cambodia for the premiere of her new movie First They Killed My Father about the brutal Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia.
