Actor Brad Pitt said in an interview that he suffers from facial blindness, also known as prosopagnosia, causing him to struggle to remember people’s faces.
Even though the award-winning actor has not been officially diagnosed, he believes he has the condition.
The 58 year old said “Nobody believes me! I wanna meet another [person with it].”
In the interview, he said that he wants to remember the people he meets and fears his struggle has given people the impression he’s aloof.
Prosopagnosia is a neurological disorder that can cause people to have difficulty recognizing even family members or friends.
Treatment involves developing other strategies to recognize people, such as focusing on their voice.
Some research shows it can affect as many as 1 in 50 people to some degree.
Brad Pitt spoke about suffering from the condition in 2013, saying that it is the reason why he stays at home so much.
