Why Can’t Brad Pitt Recognize You Anymore?

Brad Pitt’s memory is shot … at least, when it comes to remembering faces. The 49-year-old actor says he has developed facial blindness, where after meeting and engaging with someone, that person's face disappears from his memory as soon as they walk away. If they ever come in contact again, to him, it's like meeting an entirely new person. "So many people hate me because they think I'm disrespecting them," the "World War Z" star told Esquire. "So I swear to God, I took one year where I just said, This year, I'm just going to cop to it and say to people, 'Okay, where did we meet?' But it just got worse. People were more offended." Despite not undergoing any testing, Pitt goes on to say he diagnosed himself with the medical condition prosopagnosia, which is the official name for facial blindness, after reading about it several years ago.
