not everything has to be airbrushed into oblivion. he's clearing doing some characters for this ed, so i like that it's not immaculate. plus he doesn't have great skin in reality. like guys with texture!
Brad has been changing a lot last few years, actually almost a decade. Seems like they realized he's not the baby blue-eyed face he used to be, so they went in the completely opposite direction. I do not like it. Honestly, he reminded me of the look Danny Trejo is trying to sell (just not as angry).
It was an April morning when they told us we should go
As I turn to you, you smiled at me... How could we say no?
I swear to god when I first saw the cover I thought that I had misread the thread title because he looks so much like Johnny Depp here. It's rather creepy to be honest. His editorial is okay, but I've definitely seen better pictures of Brad. Hopefully the interview is a good read though.

That cover is pretty terrible, especially when you add in the metallic overload of the masthead . The editorial is an interesting exercise in character play but I'm not that bothered. I guess t-rex was right then, there are 9 issues in the year if they combine October with November.
Steven Klein makes EVERYONE he shoots look horrible and aged beyond their years. With that said, the only photos I like from the ed are the ones with the dreads. White guys can rarely pull off wearing dreads without looking foolish but somehow they make Brad hotter. I can dig that.
There's Chanel Iman....... then there's everyone else.
"Itís refreshing to see an actor, imperfections and all, looking like an actual human being, but overall, forum members were not particularly impressed." Are you guys crazy or what? lol The editorial is AMAZING oh my gosh!!!! He shows his versatility with those looks, the story and clothes match perfectly, this is very strong!!! He may look rought on the cover but that's the idea they went for, the editorial is pure magic, some male models can't even do 10% of what Brad brought to the table for this editorial = GENIUS!
The comments about his skin are odd. This is what human skin looks like, especially that of a 48-year-old man like Brad Pitt. I wish women were allowed to be this untouched. Most people probably aren't as repulsed by such natural photos as some are here.
Oh, what a surprise. A man on the cover of Interview has every flaw and pore in his skin left plain for the eye so see, while the next woman on the cover will look like porcelain, as every woman before her has. This isn't even a comment on the actual cover (which I'm not fond of anyway) but I'm just so sick of this cover treatment.
As for the cover story... I've never seen Brad Pitt as actor first, celebrity second, so these images kind of strike me as incongruous. Maybe even a bit silly.
Um I don't think the point of the ed was for him to look
Hollywood retouched perfect and beautiful.
How are people not getting this?
If they wanted to go the perfect movie star route
they would have, it's not as if they haven't before.
