Brad spilled to the magazine, that he feared people think "he's remote and aloof, inaccessible, self-absorbed" since he has difficulty remembering their faces.

"So many people hate me because they think I’m disrespecting them. Every now and then, someone will give me context, and I’ll say, 'Thank you for helping me'," he explained.

Although the Fury star claimed he tried "copping" with his struggles at one point, he said he only "pissed more people off."
