What Phobia Holds Brad Pitt Back?

Michael Tran/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Note to Brad Pitt fans: If you’re ever in a car with the A-list actor, make sure he makes all the right turns. Otherwise, you could be in for a very long, and indirect, road trip.

The Moneyball star has revealed what is certainly a new entry in the ongoing list of unusual phobias, a fear of travelling “backwards” in his car.

Pitt, 47, told UK’s Empire magazine, “If I’m walking out the door and I’ve forgotten something, I can’t go back and get it. It is something in my nature. If I’m driving down the road and I miss a turn, I have to keep going forward. I can’t reverse. It’s some kind of psychological defect.”

The star says he believes his obsession with moving forward in life is behind his fear.

“It’s just that, for better or worse, I want to keep moving on,” he told the magazine.  “I don’t like to go backwards. It’s not what I’m good at.”
