Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill Cover 'New York' Magazine

Brad Pitt and his Moneyball co-star, Jonah Hill, cover New York magazine’s Fall Preview issue, on newsstands this week.

Here’s what the 47-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On why he “became obsessed” with the story: “I saw it as a story about justice. How is a team with a $40 million payroll going to compete with a team with a $140 million payroll and another $100 million in reserves? Any talent they grow is going to get poached by the rich teams. That became really interesting to me.”

On working with Jonah: “Jonah’s a revelation in this thing – he’s a study in reserve. I think the most interesting work that’s been going on in the last couple of years is what the comedy guys have been doing. Guys like Jonah and Russell Brand and [Seth] Rogen and a few others … they picked up on an irreverence that started with Adam Sandler and continued with Will Ferrell, but they’ve been grounding it in a kind of pathos and humanity. I find it really strong work.”

    Hey jared why don’t you start a post re: Angelina’s Twitter. Jolieproject. she’s so sweet she follows back. :)

  • Hello

    @It’s gonna bomb: Brad is 47 years old, so you don’t expect him to have a smooth face. It’s natural. As for his face on the cover -that’s why photoshop exits

  • Great Hair

    Omg, Brad looks so gorgeous!

  • Eliza

    I like what he said about the comedians so sweet and he sounds so intelligent!!

    Brad you look hot hot that can’t be denied. Johnna looks good as well losing weight is the best thing he did. It is always hard to break a cycle but he did it. I am sure he pat himself in the back lol

  • @it’s gonna bomb

    Some day you will be older also and I bet you won’t look even ten percent as good as Brad.

    Secondly, most films about baseball bomb. They don’t do that well. League of their Own- is the top grossing baseball film of all time–and the only film about baseball to break the $100 million dollar mark. The top opening baseball film was the Benchwarmers at $19 million and it only made $52 million total. Many of these films feature A List actors and actresses.

    So the question is, why the he!! would you expect Money Ball to make a ton of money? If it makes anywhere near 50 million it will be a successful BB film. And if makes more than a $108 million then it will be the most successful film about baseball ever.

    Get your facts straight babe.

  • Brad Fan

    Brad, hottest Guy on this planet! Fan of him since 1991 ;-)
    Never liked his choises in women until angie came :-)

    Wonderful comments from Brad Pitt. Always so generous and thoughtful in his kindness to others whether it be residents of New Orleans, the less fortunate around the world, or his fellow actors. He’s clearly been in his stride since losing the dead weight in 2005 and partnering with Angelina Jolie. They clearly bring out the best in each other and put their money where their mouth is when it comes to causes they care about. They are committed to each other, their family and their causes. Plus he’s only getting hotter with age! He’s the definition of a real man. Love the cover! Thanks Jared!

    Croatian president Ivo Josipovic about Angelina:
    -“Rade Serbedzija and Dusko Ljustina called me on Wednesday and told me that they need to talk to me urgently. Fortunately, I was on the Brijuni islands due to some previous commitments and, when we met, they told me that Angelina Jolie should come to Brioni in two days and ask just two things: to ensure the accommodation and everything to be very discreet. I immediately called Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor and she immediately agreed to host Angelina in the Villa Brijunka. Preparations were carried out in complete discretion and Angelina arrived on Friday evening with her two children” – president Josipovic explains the background of the arrival.
    -” We talked about the great names of our film, music and literature, and film stars who have visited Tito on Brijuni. Angelina Jolie was interested interlocutor, she is educated and is interested in art as well as humanitarian work “- says Josipovic
    - “Her modesty, cordiality and warmth, which could be seen in communication with everyone who approached her, really captures” – says the president.

    Good morning Jp fans, Word of mouth, I hear The Help was number one at the box office. Lets get out there and do the same for Brad. Whenever Brad has a movie out, I find myself talking to strangers, asking them if they hear about the movie Brad’s in. Happened at Borders when Jessie James came out, went to buy this Western magazine with Brad on the cover. I stirred up a convo with this man next to me, might be weird but I’ll keep doing it. Whatever it takes for Brad.

    @@it’s gonna bomb:

    Baseballfilms and american football films bombs mostly outside of America, because its not a popular sport in the rest of the world. But we will see, its a pitt movie, his name is huge.

    but you know brad, hes not about the huge succes anymore, he had that all, he wants to make good movies just like babel. movies where you have to use your brain and we all know that unfortunately the most americans dont use their brain very often, i just say Bush or the tea party = biggest hilibillys on earth LoL :-P

    @@it’s gonna bomb: so, im gonna want bags/weird as hell wrinkles under my eyes and a wrinkled up forehead? I think I’m gonna want his photo editor but definitely not his naturally wrinkled up face.


    In an interview that appeared yesterday in Le Figaro, Sean Penn spoke harshly of Terrence Malick’s film “The Tree of Life,” in which the actor makes a relatively brief but memorable appearance:
    Sean penn hates Brad’s acting.
    ” I didn’t at all find on the screen the emotion of the script, which is the most magnificent one that I’ve ever read. A clearer and more conventional narrative would have helped the film without, in my opinion, lessening its beauty and its impact. Frankly, I’m still trying to figure out what I’m doing there and what I was supposed to add in that context! What’s more, Terry himself never managed to explain it to me clearly.”

    @It’s Gonna bomb – are you stuck on stupid? Why are you reading about Brad Pitt? It’s obvious you are not a fan, so this is not the thread for you, this thread is for BP fans, so stop waisting your time here. BP fans do not care what you have to say.

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are certainly putting Ayrshire on the map.

    Last night stunned locals looked on as they dined out in Ayr for the second time in a week.

    The couple were spotted taking their children to the Brig o’ Doon Hotel in Alloway for dinner.

    Tom Hanks loves riding a scooter because people confuse him for Brad Pitt when he’s on it.

    The actor’s new movie Larry Crowne is about a middle-aged man who goes back to college after losing his job. Tom directed, wrote and appeared in the picture, with his character Larry spending a lot of time riding around on a moped.

    Tom has been known to grace the roads on such a vehicle in real life. Brad is also known to be a fan of motorbikes, which is part of the reason Tom rides them.

    “When I was Larry I was very good at cooking French toast!” he laughed. “I think it’s good not to get too caught up in the cynicism of this century. Just like Larry I like riding a simple scooter to help keep costs down. I have a Vespa. If I wear a helmet nobody can distinguish me from Brad Pitt!”

    TAIWANESE singer/actor WILBER PAN, or Will as he is more fondly known, recently hinted to the Press about the girl he is currently going out with.
    …….”Of course, my mother is rushing me, but I am not in a hurry though,” he said in a recently. “Seriously, I’m giving myself some time before finally settling down. My target is to start looking for my partner when I hit 35.”
    What about children?
    “I love children! I don’t mind if I have lots of kids, without a mother. I want to be like Angelina Jolie, adopting kids from different countries. I think my own mother won’t mind, even if we come from a traditional Chinese family. We’re in a modern society now and I’m sure my mum will accept those kids as my own,” he shared.

    Brad is gorgeous in that cover. At 47 he is still yummy and trolls can go pound sand with their talking points re: Brad, Angie and kids. They are so in pain because the family just live their life oblivious to these trolls and their pettiness and ugliness.

    I’ve just had the most surreal, fab, magical day with Chris at The Hillhouse in Helensburgh. We walked into the gorunds of the house and who was standing there taking photos?? BRAD PITT!!!! we were about 10 steps away from him. I took out my camera but his securtiy guard said no pics (BOO) While we were watching him Angelina came out of the house!! Chris wrote his name under their names in the guest book and he has the pen!!! It was brill cause Chris is a massive fan. still can’t believe it

    Hill House in Helensburgh, Scotland is one of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s most famous works, probably second only to Glasgow School of Art. It was designed and built for the publisher Walter Blackie in 1902 – 1904.,_Scotland
