  • mj

    He’s sure showing his age.

  • Jezebel

    Luv the Jolie-Pitt

  • ANDREA

    forever and ever a legenddddd

  • DEE

    Yikes!!
    What has Angie done to him??
    he got OLD real quick!!!

  • Baby

    WOW..how sexy. I love that Brad is confident to show his face
    not photoshopped. What a real man.
    Tx, Jared!

    I love the cover…can’t wait to read the interview

  • d.kay

    Oh, don’t you just love to see a photo of a star not photoshopped……..real man, Brad.

    Gone are the dead end pretty boy days. Now he’s just soooo sexy. As Johnny Carson once said, the sexiest thing about a person is between their ears…..I love how he thinks.

  • briseis

    Wow, that was quick, Jared. Debra77 was just mentioning this W cover on the old Brad thread (about Angelina, the 2,000 plus thread) and here you have it! Thanks much.

    I am not sure I like the cover, but this puts to rest the botox accusation. Brad looks every bit his 45 years, and I am glad he’s comfortable with it.

  • Heather

    Haha…still looks good, but his children are aging him rapidly…sucka!! Welcome to the real world, buddy. Clooney’d age 10 years in 2 if he took the plunge.

  • ashley

    I love Brad but he looks a bit old in this picture.

  • d.kay

    DEE @ 01/06/2009 at 10:00 pm Yikes!!
    What has Angie done

    You know when I read shite like this I see why half of HW is in a plastic surgeons office……so they can please shallow shite like you.

    I realize America is only a few hundred years.old…..take a trip to Europe where this sort of asinine thinking doesn’t exist. A life lived is full of wisdom and intelligence…….and that is beauty you half wit!!

  • briseis

    Wow, that was quick, Jared. Debra77 was just mentioning this W cover on the old Brad thread (about Angelina, the 2,000 plus thread) and here you have it! Thanks very much.

    I am not sure I like the cover, but this puts to rest the botox accusation. Brad looks every bit his 45 years, and I am glad he’s comfortable with it.

  • shenanyginz

    not a very flattering picture of brad. but change is good, right?

  • yay

    Wow. I love the way he looks his age. Every time I see one of these two, I marvel at how unapologetically themselves they are.. and how that seems to most freak out the pseudos.

  • http://www.rachaeltaylor.org Rachael Taylor

    having a lot of kids and adopting too many of them makes you look like brad pitt :)

  • SERA

    Wow! He looks great. No wonder Angie wakes up happy every morning. I would too. He looks like a man who has family, love and helping others on his mind. Can not wait to read this article.

  • d.kay

    ashley @ 01/06/2009 at 10:05 pm I love Brad but he looks a bit old in this

    Pity………..how dare he age unlike the rest of the world. What is it with you people and ageing………are you twelve?? Clint Eastwood is at the peak of his career at damn near eighty. What is it with your youth obsessed society??? Honestly, it is sick. Can you only see beauty on the outside??? Here’s a weeny shovel, go dig a little deeper.

  • pokeman

    i like it. is natural. no photoshop like most magazine covers. he is not afraid to shows his age.

  • releka

    I think it’s great that it’s not a pretty boy picture. I bet brad wanted it this way, he is much more than a pretty boy. LOVE ANGIE!!!

  • SO many insipid shallow people

    caught up in the plastic physical fakeness of celebrity to the point that they can’t see the beauty of Brad’s honesty. The guy is more gorgeous at 45 than he ever was 10-15yrs ago. He looks like a man instead of a pretty twink with flowing locks. He’s not afraid of time, and he’s not concerned about what those who worship STILL the Golden Couple era of his past. If your asses aren’t claiming he’s shooting up botox, you’re bitiching that he’s got to many wrinkles.

    I’ve never been prouder of the guy than I am at the present, and I think this is the best cover shot he’s done since his Fight Club promos.

    Brad Pitt is the man,

  • Oh my

    Well, you have to give him credit for honesty. He looks every day of his age, if not more.

  • Jessica

    He’s starting to age very quickly.

  • senior

    Happy Three Kings day to the JP fans; boy 10 days without a new thread. Thanks Jared. Hi to MFChar, irma, soopx, vickifromtexas, dina#1, anoble, felinelily, Neleh,Cliniqua, Brisies, alia , Bermy girl, all the regulars :)

  • Oh My God

    Brad Pitt looks horrible ! He is so old ! Some men age gracefully and some just don’t. He belongs to the later category.
    Michael Douglas and ” James Bond” guy are still hot at old age.
    This is what you get when you hook up with a lunatic woman, Brad!
    Gone ..baby..gone old :(

  • pokeman

    Like he said. he would trade wisdom for youth any day.

  • Mia

    Wow he’s no Sean Connery. Age is not being kind to him.

  • bdj

    Thanks for the pictures and information. BP is mighty fine and getting better with time. He is a devoted Partner and Dad. Benjamin Button is a great movie and BP is getting raves for his performance. BP and AJ are doing great work in their professional, artistic and humanitarian projects. It is all good.

  • d.kay

    He is flinging a shot at HW and his X types. Here’s real, he says. I’m not playing that game any longer. The deeper and more self-actualized he becomes, the less HW he will be. Having actually moved out of LA for all intense and purposes except for maintaining a base, he is shedding the plastic like a second skin. His X is age obsessed……..it’s another little message to her and the rest of Hollowwood.

  • briseis

    Hey there, senior, how’s everything?

    I am glad Jared gave us a new page, I was tired of loading up the old thread on my blackberry. It took forever!!!

  • yuck

    He looks great, aging gracefully. Luv it!

  • Ugly MANiston

    Oh My God @ 01/06/2009 at 10:19 pm

    STFU. he looks lot better than many 40 year old. look at your MANiston. she might has a nice body but her face is all dry and wrinkly from all the sun tanning. She uses botox. did you see her cheeks plumed up in Marley and Me photos. At least Brad did you botox.

  • Janey

    Brad has sure lost his boyish good looks! He’s aged very quickly. Those wrinkles are really deep! The scruffy beard doesn’t help.

    Nice photos, though. I like the stylized black-and-white.

  • RUBI

    A REAL MAN…. LOVE HIM!!!

  • Ugly MANiston

    Ugly MANiston @ 01/06/2009 at 10:25 pm Oh My God @ 01/06/2009 at 10:19 pm

  • JAYE

    You guys are harsh!!

  • anon

    I wanna see all those idiots who scream botox will have to say

  • Alexanderina

    Finally a new thread. I can’t wait to get this magazine and read the articles. Thanks for the new thread Jared

  • Man’s UGly Hens ATTACK Brad

    HOT PAPA – LOOKIN’ FINE!! YUM. Now THAT’S a REAL MAN!
    .
    BY THE WAY….
    .
    Attention: In case you didn’t know it. It was always Maniston and her goddess circle who were obsessing about their ugly old assses and racing to dermas, plastic surgeons, and just plain over obsessing about the fug that was staring back at them in the mirror. THEY ARE THE ONES POSTING DENIGRATING BRAD’S ‘LOOKS,’ TOO, IN CASE IT WASN’T OBVIOUS. Brad was a witness to the superficiality, shallownesss and reportedly at her and the godess circles insistence indulged a few visits to a derma to get a laser peeling himself. But it’s also why whenever there’s a pic of Brad where God forbid he looks 45, you will get her ugly menopausal hens attacking him for daring to look like a REAL MAN. It shows how more than ever – he was only a piece of arm candy to juxtaposition against Maniston’s homeliness and fool people into thinking she was more than she was. They were all superficial, shallow, and over obsessed with ‘looks.’ Courtney Cox has admitted as much in several interviews now. She was one of them. She’s broken free of that it sounds like – but Maniston and her ugly pals have not. Maniston will continue to get her nose shaved, and bumped, and have her mini-lifts, and her derma peels.
    .
    That’s why there’s complete irony now in Brad’s life – he is literally with the most beautiful woman in the world who could give a sh*t what he looks like. You can see why films like Button NOW speak to Brad. He was with such a shallow plastic surgery victim for so long, he’s been freed up to embrace life and living like never before…and being a REAL MAN.

  • photographer

    I love how they used techniques to EMPHASIZE the lines as opposed to airburshing them out. Black and white photography makes this effect even more striking. I love it. W loves the Jolie-Pitts

  • irma

    He’s 45 years old, he can’t be looking younger every year. The most important is he is aging gracefully. He is being himself on the cover, he can’t please everybody but for his fans & Angie HE IS THE BEST. The most important thing is what he is inside. He is not into physical look anymore but what’s within. God bless the Jolie-Pitt’s.

  • hanah

    Brad is not using his looks to get a head.

  • ananan

    aging gracefully! The real man, that is BRAD PITT!!! a dedicated father and partner…

  • briseis

    And to all those who keep comparing this cover to other stars, if Michael Douglas and the James Bond guy (who? Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan?) had extreme close ups like this, they also will show their age, and it won’t be that “gracefully”. I wonder how George Clooney and Tom Cruise will appear with this extremely tight close-up.

  • Andrómeda

    Thanks so much JJ!!.
    I´d wish i can get this magazne, but it wll be imposible in my country.

  • G

    These photos were taken back when he was in New York for Changeling premiere (end of October) before he went to LA to get some work done on his face – in which was obvious during is appearance on Oprah (Day after Obama won – Nov 6?), which was taped after he got the work done in LA

    As for his statement about you can’t stop and have to keep moving? If he is referring to work – well then that’s proof of him once again contradicting himself. He said he was soon going to stop acting because it was a young man’s game. Same when he said he would never direct because he would leave it to the pros and the people who know what they are doing – and now he has plans to direct a film in the coming year or two.

    Oh My God @ 01/06/2009
    ***********************************************************
    You think Michael Douglas is hot at his old age because of plastic surgery and botox????????????????????? You are a very shallow person JUST LIKE YOUR IDOL THE X.

  • UM

    He looks good. He has that glow in the dark picture happening.

  • True to form Jared

    True to form Jared…Brad gets the serious thread, and there’s NO MENTION of Angelina, Brad’s partner, being on the BAFTA list at all. Why am I NOT surprised.
    .
    You know how that is such a FREQUENT happening – when both MOM & DAD are up for Best Actor, and all. I can see how Jared could just FORGET about Angelina.
    .
    Or maybe he’s just awaiting Tabloid Wednesday to post a thread where he smears her and aligns her with some stupid tabloid war in the midst of award season.
    .
    Way to go Jared…great way to alienate all of the Angelina fans.
