Brad Pitt Covers 'Vanity Fair Italia' February 2012

Brad Pitt flashes a smile on the cover of Vanity Fair Italia‘s February issue.

The 48-year-old actor sat down with VF‘s West Coast Editor Krista Smith and his Moneyball director, Bennett Miller, to chat about the success and accolades the film has received.

“We worked hard. We wanted to tell a story. We wanted it to mean something to people,” Brad shared.

“We talk about the long run of films, not necessarily how it comes out of the gate, but does it have something to say about our time now, and will it have something to say in 20 years … [I'm] very happy when it takes that trajectory,” he added.

Also pictured: Brad greeting a huge crowd of fans while leaving The Daily Show With Jon Stewart on Wednesday (February 1) in NYC.

FYI: Brad will be joining Angelina Jolie in Croatia and Bosnia a bit later this month, where her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, will have its official debut!

  • Liry

    That smile! That bottom lip!

  • finally

    @It’s SOOOO OVER:

    linky linky linky
    there are BILLIONS of celebs with twitter accounts, none reported this news????????

    where is the link of the blind item, and don’t u dare link from IUC.

  • Rose

    If it’s so over why are you here? No one here cares what you have to say, you are white noise. Continue wishing, hoping and praying for BA to break up, it’s not going to happen. Get a life. Brad and Angie are living their life and you are worrying about someone who does not know you exists.

  • wow

    @It’s SOOOO OVER: You are so hurting.A&B have a lovely family.Sorry you lost out.

  • finally

    @It’s SOOOO OVER:

    this rumour is going NO-WHERE
    it will remain buried on comment sections and never go mainstream like access hollywood, ET, E! etc

    idle internet pathetic gossip will not break as a brangelina split.

  • marina

    How handsome is Brad? That smiwle I remember it from Thelma and Louise. He still got it!

  • Sorry

    @It’s SOOOO OVER:
    Only the dumbasses don’t know what kind of person Angelina Jolie really is make up these fake stories. Angelina never is a cheater.

  • finally

    @It’s SOOOO OVER:

    can’t wait for this news to break over all mainstream blogs like popsugar etc *rolls eyes

  • asher

    Lmao How can it be about Jolie if it is a blind item? blind items don’t name names! Seriously, with EVERYONE’s eyes on Angie that night, this would have been EVERYWHERE, not a tabloid. Nice try though, loser.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    @It’s SOOOO OVER:

    Shouldn’t you be at IUC?

  • wow


  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    I love the cover. Gorgeous man.

  • wow

    @wow: So over 7 years ago.

  • marina

    Poor pathetic troll really thinks that s/he has some really important information… Ha! On top of that, thumbing down fans comments when everyone knows thta they will get a lot of thumbs up anyway. Can s/he be more of a loser?
    De verdad, que triste es ser un “anti”. It really sucks to be a hen.

  • Just Sayin

    CDAN has some truth about some Blind Items, there are also made up ones too. Similiar to tabloids, sometimes tabs got it right, like John Edwards or Demi Moore’s husband, but most of time are just lies to sell magazines

  • briseis

    Wow, with all the cameras on her and Brad at the TELEVISED SAG awards, all that could be given as “proof” of Angie “asking for the number of a B-list actress” was a stupid blind item? NO ONE even took a picture of Angie “kissing” this actress on the neck and giving her a bite except a stupid Blind Item? Sheesh, with all the photographers and television cameras around you would think at least a couple would take pictures of Angie “cheating” on Brad. The JP fans are right: the trolls are getting less and less imaginative in their lies. We could shoot down their lies with BOTH hands tied behind our backs.

  • cute

    silly but cute “Brady Bunch”-inspired graphic (the pictures of the kids are adorable) with an “insider” sharing thoughts on what each JP kid thinks about the “news” of their new twin brothers:

  • umm

    7 years already, the trolls are still dumb.

  • marina

    @Just Sayin:
    And the JPs are usuallybused to sell when sales are low. Of course Angelina is the one attacked because women are the ones buying gossip. Who cares? Only those pathetic living inthe past, those who have been waiting for 7 years plus to finally say ” i told you so, see? They broke up”. Keep waiting.

  • Just Sayin

    Angelina is not a cheater, neither is Brad. So the tabs really need not waste time on this angle. To OK magazine, Angelina isn’t pregnant either, she was drinking wine at SAG.

  • Rose

    It must be so frustrating going to bed every night for seven (7) years praying for two people you don’t know to break up, and it’s not happening. IMO your head must be ready to explode. Remember this saying, when you hate someone it’s like you drinking poison hoping that person will die. Please stop ki!!ing yourself and get a life. Your life will take a turn for the better, and you will feel better about yourself, and that’s a healthy thing.

  • Alice

    The trolls’ lie can only last til next red carpet which is Jan. 12 BAFTAS, Brad and Angie will be there. The trolls are losers.

  • ashby

    please stop feeding the loser trolls. i pity them but i’m not going to talk to them.

  • Wonderbust

    can you all just stop engaging with the is from FF and IUC and it likes the attention you are giving it.

  • dawne

    Too funny. I was at Walmart tda and picked up Hello Canada at the checkout and there is an article on Ticky in Huvane speak………how she’s going to take a ‘break’ ….translation………..there are no movie offers………..and think about family………..translation …now that her career is dead in the water, she will consider kids at 43! I’ve never seen spin this constant save for Capital Hill.

  • busted

    And the fans again spend post after post responding to the haters. and liars.

    Just too much..

  • elizabeth


    that is so funny Dawne….hello to all JP fans

    Another magazine, I did not see the HReporter here – my state, will try again this coming Saturday.

  • thelookoflove1365

    LOL, the name changing troll>>>its sooo over-trouble in paradise never dissappoints. When IT is desperate, post tab stories like it is a legit source, and then throw a statement that NE’s stories are mostly right. LOL. IS that so? OK, OK, All BIs are about Brad and Angie. Satisfied?
    If you believe the tabs, then come on big heifer, send me your bank account and access code so I can transfer the inheritance money you deserved from your long lost uncle that died and Africa, childess and whifeless. And according to the record, you are listed as the ONLY ve living relative. If you agree, I will contact you, no worries how, I just know where to find you. LOL. I’ve missed the emoticon that JJ removed. *rolling eyes* big time.
