Doug Pitt, businessman and founder of Care to Learn, is not an easy man to get to know.

“He is just not a real outgoing guy,” says long-time friend Matt Miller. “His dad is that way. Doug can be seen as distant, disinterested, stand-offish. That is more of a personality thing. … And then you couple that with his life experiences.”

Those life experiences involve having Brad Pitt as an older brother. As a result, people give Doug screenplays for his brother to read. One man came to Doug’s business to ask why Doug and Brad had placed a microchip in his head. Others simply want to hover near the glow of reflected fame.

But there’s something about Pitt few people know, says Miller, a real estate developer who graduated with Doug Pitt from Kickapoo High School in 1985.

“Doug is kind of a bad ass. He is a tough guy,” Miller says. “He would not fight you. Well, he would if he needed to. But with all the charity work he has done — as polished as he has become — you might think you know him.

“He has a very strong sense of right and wrong,” Miller says. “That is one area where he is not bashful. If he ends up in a situation when there is a wrong being done — even if it’s a random situation where it’s being done to someone else — he is the guy who will step in.”

Douglas Mitchell Pitt, 48, stepped in to help his community back in 2007. It started when he was at a Springfield Chamber of Commerce meeting. He was astounded by stories he heard of children in poverty right in his hometown.

I’m often asked about the men we put on the cover of the magazine. Usually, the questions are pretty basic: “What is So-and-so like?” or “Was So-and-so nice?” I’ll generally offer an equally uncomplicated response. “Really good guy,” I’ll say. Or “Excited to have him on the cover.” For the most part, that’s the case. But every once in a while, maybe two or three times in the 15 years I’ve been the editor-in-chief of Details, we get a real pain in the ass—someone whose ego far outpaces his talent and who is so difficult that it makes looking at that cover, even years later, a deeply unpleasant experience.

By and large, though, we find ourselves dealing with smart, creative, and all-around good guys—movie stars, mostly, who are tired and busy and occasionally a little grumpy, but who happily carve out anywhere from one hour to five or six to work with our creative team on shooting a great magazine cover. One cover subject brought a case of beer to a shoot a few years back and turned the location into an impromptu party. And I once watched Tom Cruise walk around a photo studio and introduce himself to everyone in the room—probably a dozen people. “Hi, I’m Tom Cruise,” he said to the Details fashion intern to whom, admittedly, I had never introduced myself.

And then, of course, there’s Brad Pitt. For this month’s cover shoot, Brad agreed to spend two days with the magazine’s creative staff in Humboldt Redwoods State Park in Northern California. Needless to say, two days with any celebrity subject is extraordinary. Two days with Brad Pitt is a photographer’s dream. That the photographer in this case was Mark Seliger, who has shot most of our covers since 2012, likely factored heavily in Brad’s decision to give us so much time.

We went behind the scenes of Brad Pitt’s Details magazine photo shoot, where the actor talked about his love of the outdoors and how he ranks himself as a parent.

“I’ve discovered I don’t suck at being a dad,” Brad, 50, told Details.

The father of six has traveled the world with his children Shiloh, Vivienne, Maddox, Zahara, Pax and Knox — plus their mom and recently wedded wife, Angelina Jolie. With such a large family, the Oscar winner has little time alone, but when he can get away, he gravitates towards the California Redwoods.

“I will always be most comfortable in the outdoors,” Brad told Details. “I grew up in the Ozarks … and I’m quite reverential when it comes to a tree.”

So much so that he had the height of the world’s largest sequoia — 311.4 feet — tattooed on his forearm.

Brad’s issue of Details hits newsstands October 28, and he can next be seen on the big screen when his WWII film Fury opens October 17.
