Brad Pitt – Wrinkles and All
Brad spills about Bran-jen-lina, Bikes and Breastfeeding
Brad Pitt is looking wrinkly – and wonderful – in the new issue of W magazine. As Jezebel.com reports, Pitt insisted on being photographed by Chuck Close, “known for his ‘superdetailed’ portraits, which reveal every line and wrinkle in the skin.”
After drooling staring at Pitt’s pic for a ridiculously large amount of my productive waking hours, I’ll admit the man has a couple of creases on his famous forehead. But I had to dig out a magnifying glass to locate his purported crow’s feet. And as far as my fantasies are concerned, his slightly weathered visage only increases his do-ability factor. (Pitt’s won every “who’d-you-rather” tournament I’ve played since high school. With the possible exception of my brief but beautiful Alex Trebec phase.)
Pitt is the ultimate do-gooder dad and center of the Bran-jen-lina Bermuda triangle. But this year, he’s piqued my interest by embracing his age with a grace – and face – that few aging A-listers can muster.
Besides his warts-and-all photo op, Pitt currently stars in the ageless epic The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The film toys with all preconceptions of age and attraction, and had me seriously considering stalking a retirement home for my next date.
Other highlights from the W piece include:
• He and Jennifer Aniston, whom he calls “a sweetheart,” are getting along just fine, thank you very much. “She was a big part of my life, and me hers. I don’t see how there cannot be [that]. That’s life, man. That’s life.”
• He didn’t cheat on Jen with Angie during the filming of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Because, he says, he and Jen had already split up. “It doesn’t mean that there was some kind of dastardly affair. There wasn’t. I’m very proud of the way that it was handled. It was respectful.” Hmmm…wonder if he and Jen want to compare calendars on that?
• The man’s down with gay marriage, photographing his wife breastfeeding and riding his motorcycle while wearing a helmet. “This is my anonymity. With it, I’m just another asshole on the streets.”
Not just another a**hole, Brad. An a**hole who’s embracing his age with joie de vivre.
