Brad Pitt Covers Rolling Stone

Brad Pitt Covers Rolling Stone

Brad Pitt covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone. The 44-year-old actor talks about his new movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Barack Obama‘s presidential victory and raising a family with Angelina Jolie. Here are some mannerisms that the reporter picked up on:

“In person, Pitt is warm and funny, but is also, at least while he’s being interviewed, an extremely fidgety guy. He paces. He musses his hair. He tears little pieces of dried apricot into smaller pieces before popping them into his mouth. He rubs his knee so intensely it brings to mind Lennie from Of Mice and Men petting a rabbit.”

When asked if he went to church every Sunday growing up, Brad answered, “Yeah. And it was too much of what you shouldn’t be doing instead of what you could be doing. I get enraged when people start telling other people how to live their lives. It drives me mental. This Prop. 8 thing just drives me mental.”

Brad was also asked why his favorite Angie film is 2005′s Mr. & Mrs. Smith, in which he co-starred. He replied, “Because you know … six kids. Because I fell in love.”

    I don’t know if he’s fidgety, I just think he’s still hot at his age. But he’s way better looking without a mustache.

    Every day is ‘an adventure’ for Pitt

    Pitt on the paparazzi and his kids’ photos: “One of the things I’m most proud of is that not only did these guys who follow us and make our lives miserable and get in my kids’ faces, not only did they not get the money, but it went to people who really need it.”

    Pitt on the paparazzi and his kids’ photos: “One of the things I’m most proud of is that not only did these guys who follow us and make our lives miserable and get in my kids’ faces, not only did they not get the money, but it went to people who really need it.”

    Brad Pitt’s priorities have changed, in more ways than one.

    “I have this fantasy of my older days, painting or sculpting or making things,” the actor tells Rolling Stone’s next issue, out Friday. “But right now, it’s about getting the work done and getting home to family. I have an adventure every morning getting up.”

    Pitt, 44, has six children with partner Angelina Jolie.

    His fantasy drama, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, opens Dec. 25. Making the film made Pitt think about his own mortality.

    “Angie and I do not fight anymore,” he tells RS. “What occurred to me on this film, and also with the passing of her mother (actress Marcheline Bertrand in 2007), is that there’s going to come a time when I’m not going to get to be with this person anymore. I’m not going to get to be with my children anymore. … And so, if we have a flare-up, it evaporates now.”

    He adds, “I don’t want to waste time being angry at someone I love.” And he is defensive about Jolie. When asked about a recent New York Times story critical about her relationship with the press, he responds, “It sounded to me like the story made Angie out to be manipulative in some way. … She is savvy. But one of the things I’m most proud of is that not only did these guys who follow us and make our lives miserable and get in my kids’ faces, not only did they not get the money, but it went to people who really need it.” People and Hello! magazines paid millions to charity for exclusive photos of the Jolie-Pitts after the twins’ births.

    “When it came to the birth of our children, a huge bounty was placed on their heads. And people were going to go to incredible lengths to get it.” And so he credits Jolie’s method of handling publicity about the family.

    It comes as no surprise, then, that his favorite Jolie film is 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith, in which he co-starred. Why? “Because you know … six kids. Because I fell in love.”

    Suck it haters!

  • ME

    he looks like Robert Redford

  • marie

    LOL at his “enraged at telling people how to live their lives” line. Both sides of the prop 8 mess are doing that and pointing fingers at the other person over it. Hyprocrites all around.

  • black

    There is no appeal about him whatsoever anymore. Nothing.

  • andamentothat

    cool .. so he admits love too same as what Ange said.. Lovin it!!

  • tana

    I am always in awe of him. Not only is he one of the most naturally talented actors in Hollywood, he is also one of the most beautiful.
    I wish him all the best in the future, as well as his family. (Angelina, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox & Vivienne)

  • Nicole

    Truly horrible cover image, why on earth would they pick that shot for the cover?His head look’s huge, and he is way more handsome than this, ew!

    LOVE him though, and LOVEEEEE what he said about Prop 8 mess, it makes me angry aswell!!!

  • black

    Nice interview though. Especially the last bit………in your face Jennifer……….;T

    (I have nothing against Jen)

  • PersianCutie

    Brad is team uncool all the way. take this faniston. hahahaha

    thanks Jared for new thread.

  • g-girl

    I find him fidgety too. Not sure what that is about. He does not seem rested at times and other times he doesn’t seem comfortable. He was not comfortable on Oprah. He seemed very out of place. I have seen him on Oprah in the past and that was not the case. I guess restless is the best word. I’m getting the feeling from him that there is so much he wants to change his mind is contantly wondering. Searching. He is trying to change the world. I just hope he finds a pace that does not exhaust and ultimately burn him out.

  • NOLAN

    thank u brad! at last!

  • Mary

    I miss the old Brad Pitt.

  • brandi

    he doesnt look hot in that photo at all!

    angie and 6 kids have aged him for the worst.

  • Shame

    House of cards.

  • tana

    Jared, I wanted to add that I love your website. So much more classy than that trash, Perez Hilton.

  • papa

    Brad told x that he felt a connection to Angelina while making Mr and Mrs Smith but didn’t pursue it.X decided in Vogue to blame Angelina and Brad was p* ssed now he is saying loud and clear “yes Jen I feel in love”.I think he was sick of everyone blaming Angie

    Yesterday he’s parent were so proud to be with Angelina loud and clear.I SMELL A WEDDING.

  • Hot

    I love the cover his blue eyes are to die for.

    When you watch Mr and mrs Smith you can tel he fell in love with Angelina

  • give me a break!!!

    I’m sorry but all the hotness is gone. he is no longer making my loins burn. i used to be so crazy about him, but now he’s just average looking not extraordinary!!!

  • TEAM UNCOOL

    It comes as no surprise, then, that his favorite Jolie film is 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith, in which he co-starred. Why? “Because you know … six kids. Because I fell in love.”

    UNCOOL BRAD

  • alexanderina

    Thanks Jared for the new thread. I love this interview and can’t wait to get the magazine. You go Brad

  • alexanderina

    I love this part:

    He continues, “I get defensive. [They're] talking about not only the woman I love, but one of the people on this planet who I have the greatest respect for. I think she’s as honorable as anyone I’ve ever met.

    He adds Jolie got him into flying.

    “She’s definitely more experienced,” he says. “Yeah, she’s badass.”

    As for his favorite Jolie film?

    Their 2005 action flick Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

    Why?

    “Because you know … six kids,” he says. “Because I fell in love.”

  • No Name

    He is beautiful..inside and out. Their children are so lucky and so are the less-fortunate that they provide for!! Great people.

  • NOLAN

    can some-one post the bit from this interview when he defends angie from the NYT!!. the bit where he says that the NYT attacked his love and the woman he respects. thank u!!!

  • she-who-shall-not-be-named

    Must suck to be Miss Aniston almost evry month in the press about her ex Pitt drool over how his current partner is soo perfect and how they are so in luv. I don’think Aniston will ever recover unless miracle happens and she meet the guy that seeps her completely of her feet. I don’t John Mayer is really the one, I just think J.A is just settling for anything to keep her mind off her divorce. And Pitt hould stop singing praising praises about Brandgelina, now it’s getting a bit stale and artificial.

  • He grown up

    GONE ARE THE DAYS HE THOUGHT HE COULDN’T SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE WITH ONE PERSON NOW HE IS TALKING ABOUT FOREVER WITH ANGELINA.HOW THINGS CHANGE.

  • Frenchy

    I’ve been happily drowning in thick vats of Jolie Pitt threads. Thanks Jared. It’s like the old days. The pictures are amazing and you are first with the JP news. If you aren’t then the fans are! LOL!!!!

  • NOLAN

    thanks alexanderina. that’s what i was looking for!
    go brad, i am glad he is being more PUBLICLY DEFENSIVE OF ANGELINA. i am sure he has defended angelina in private before, but it is nice for us fans to hear it, if only to shut the trolls up! lol!

  • He grown up

    He was close to Angelina’s mum it must have affected him too.Brad is alway fidgety in interviews.

  • mama

    CHEATER!!!!!!!!!!! HOW NICE IT IS THAT WE CELEBRATE CHEATING

  • Val

    THANK YOU JARED!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Great interview!
    Love them!

  • mimi

    I agree…all the hotness is gone! So average…booo, he used to be hot. He does seem restless lately…kind of has a nervous energy to him…eh, not good.

    As to the comment he made about falling in love during the movie: TASTELESS….but then again, no surprise..he’s obviously pulled a lot of tactless, insensitive and low-class moves….add this one the pile.

    I’m sure all of his exes are glad they got him when he was young and hot and not the present Brad! I would be!! :)

  • mama

    HE SAID THE SAMETHING ABOUT JENNIFER ANISTON!!!! HOW HE COULDN’T WAIT TO SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE WITH HER & NOW THIS. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!! STOP DOING MOVIES WE WON’T MISS U!

  • Tara

    Brad Pitt is hot! Althought the moustache must go! Im thinking about picking up the magazine.

    Also, for any other Just Jared fans out there, if you desperately need a dress for New Years Eve Gilt Groupe is having a Jill Stuart AND Laila Azhar sale starting at noon. Their sales in the past have been really great (and super discounted) so I have my fingers crossed about these.

    Here is an invite for anyone that wants to check it out- happy shopping!

  • mimi

    By the way, I always thought he lacked substance…he only imitates whoever he is with at the moment…what a turn-off in a man. At least before he was hot, now…nothing.

  • the real lou

    Brad has ALWAYS been fidgety in interviews.So haters shut up.Still a handsome man,just not “pretty” like he was when he was younger.Which BTW I think always worked against him from a acting stand point.Brad has grown as a man for the better,thank God!

    I will be buying Rolling Stone Friday!!!!!

  • jaxon

    He looks like Redford. If he let the stache grown longer on the sides of his mouth it would be Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid all over again.

    I’m looking forward to seeing this movie. It seems like one of the more “different” ones of the year.

    This makes me laugh and smile all at the same time. Sometimes I think people treat them like they are seperate entities. Say something awful about Brad and as long as you say something good about Angie you and Angie are alright or visa versa. I like this statement because he is saying that we are a unit so back off *itches if you think I’m not offend on her behalf.

    Love the bad*ss comment. I can see him smiling saying that and proud of her for being bad*ss all at the same time.

    i’ll say it again. thank u brad for saying this!!! i am so happy for angelina!
