With his new film “World War Z” coming out next month Brad Pitt is making headlines recently. After he revealed he might be face blind: meaning he does not remember anyone’s faces, it is now announced, via an Esquire interview, that he is done with sex scenes.

As we write this, we can hear teenage hearts from the 1990s breaking worldwide.

According to Esquire, Brad Pitt avoids onscreen sex scenes, out of respect for Angelina Jolie, and she does the same for him.

Pitt’s interview in the June/July issue of the magazine includes a quote from his good friend Frank Pollaro about the romance and love between Pitt and Jolie.

“Once I walked in and Angie was standing there and Zahara [the couple’s eight-year-old daughter] walked up and said, ‘Daddy, you’re not going to start making out with Mommy again, are you?’ And it’s like that,” Frank revealed.

“This is a guy who has tried not to do any sex scenes with other women since he’s met Angelina. He’s crazy about her, and she’s the same way about him.”

Pitt also opened up about his current relationship with Jolie as well as his ex-marriage to Jennifer Aniston.

“For a long time I thought I did too much damage – drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. I went years fucking off. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany – a decision not to squander my opportunities. It was a feeling of get up. Because otherwise, what’s the point?”

Pitt says he’s the happiest he’s ever been now.

“ I have a handful of close friends and I have my family and I haven’t known life to be any happier,” he said. “I’m making things. I just haven’t known life to be any happier.”

His new film “World War Z” will hit theaters June 21.
