Brad Pitt Covers 'Interview' Magazine October/November 2012

Brad Pitt looks dapper as can be in the photo spread for his Interview magazine cover story for the October/November 2012 issue.

Here is what the 48-year-old Killing Them Softly actor had to share with interviewer Guy Ritchie:

On who he is supporting in the election
: “Well, I just want to avoid confusion with this film and say I’m a big supporter of Obama, and I think he’s our best answer for the next four years.”

On his future in film: “I’d rather be behind the camera. As a producer, obviously, you’re part of a team that brings the story to the screen. It wouldn’t be there if you didn’t champion it or if you and a group of people weren’t championing it. I like that.”

On choosing films to work on
: “You know, right now, this is like a clean-up-the-loose-ends-and-tidy-up-the-place kind of year, which I also look at as a refill kind of year. I’m not good at going back-to-back-to-back-to-back with movies, and it’s just now that I’m starting to get my bearings again and a flavor for what’s next. But it can’t be something repetitive that I’ve done before. I’m bored to death by that, and when I attempt things like that, it never works–I end up hurting the movie. So it’s just about discovery now and finding something new that’s interesting to me.”

On his film Killing Them Softly: “Well, what Andrew [Dominik] wanted to do with this film was interesting: He wanted to talk about America—and America as a business—but he wanted to hide it within this low-end crime drama. We in America have some grand ideals—and some very strong ideals—but a lot of times, those ideals are used for marketing.”

    KILLING THEM SOFTLY

    Australian director, Andrew Dominik, has made three great films in his career. The fact that his career only spans three films means that, so far, his hit rate is incredible. After the blackly comic pseudo-biopic, Chopper, and the epic, elegiac western, The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, he has turned his caustic eye on modern American crime – and modern American economics – in this adaptation of the novel Cogan’s Trade by George V. Higgins.

    It’s a lean, brutal, crime thriller that’s coming from a place of honesty, not simply wallowing in grindhouse excess like so many superficially similar films. It’s violent, smart, funny, astute, honest, and uncompromising – what are you waiting for?

  • Tamara

    Brad is gorgeous. He has so much personality. I like that they didn’t photoshop the pictures too much to give him perfect skin. Love it!

  • Catherine

    Brad has the perfect bone structure. He is so gorgeous.

    Waving to all fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The Real Emma

    Beautiful Brad! Thank you Guy & Steven.

  • LOVE THIS

    RITCHIE: Has there ever been a time when you’ve done it, and even made the right choice, but you now wish maybe you’d approached things differently?

    PITT: No, because each misstep leads to the next correct step.

    I bet that Brad was referring this MISSTEP to his infamous ex-wife. LOL In short, Granny Loser Manny was a big MISTAKE. Hahaha Thank God Brad DUMPED the HO.

  • wow

    I have been waiting for Brad’s interview and photoshoots with Interview magazine since those tweet about the photoshoots. One word: STUNNING.

    I think Brad is earning his $7 mil . . . a google search of Brad Pitt Chanel reaps 11,900,000 items. Nicole Kidman Chanel gets less than half at 4,900,000 and that campaign was huge. Brad’s going to break some records for Chanel, do doubt.
    .
    ++++++++++++++++++++++

    Uh…I hate to burst bubbles, but…this doesn’t really mean anything. The way search engines work is that unless you specify otherwise it searches both terms – Brad Pitt, Chanel – and returns matches where all terms are mentioned. Matches mentioning BOTH terms appear first (Boolean “and” operator) and matches with EITHER term second (Boolean “or” operator). It also depends on which search engine you use. Google and Bing weight terms differently. Bing returned fewer results for Brad/Chanel (10,800,000) than Google but it returned more results for Kidman/Chanel (5,270,000). And let’s not even get into the “Advanced” search options.
    .
    BTW – The other thing to remember is that there is an Australian athlete who’s name is also “Brad Pitt” (I think he’s a boxer) so some of Brad’s results are referring to the other Brad Pitt.

    Dailymail style expert says Maniston ring is is more suitable for a quartz cocktail ring than an engagement ring, It looks like it belongs on the hand of a Real Housewife. hehehe

    ROTFLMBAO! SNAP! Damn…people everywhere are making fun of Ticky’s ring. Too funny. Guess nobody ever told her that less is more. God knows less of her is certainly more enjoyable for the rest of the world…

    Brad must be a fan of Bob Marley, (Zahara Marley) he even looks similar to Bob with the dread locks.@sharyllee: Your opinion is of no interest to anyone but you.
    So run along and watch the video of we are the millers, because ticky just spent a fortune on a ring.

  • - profound genius

    “We in America have some grand ideals—and some very strong ideals—but a lot of times, those ideals are used for marketing” naaaaaw
