October 20, 2014

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.

“I worry about them all the time,” he said in the November issue of Psychologies. “That’s the emotional bond and responsibility that sweeps over you when you have a family to look after.”

The father of six, who recently tied the knot with Angelina Jolie, went on to say that his children have taught him the true meaning of love.

“I care about them more than I care about myself,” said Pitt, 50. “You see past yourself and become more generous and giving, and wanting only the best for your family.”

He added: “You learn to value the basic beauty of family, of watching your children grow and evolve. It’s the most beautiful thing you can experience.”

The kids even came along for Pitt and Jolie’s honeymoon in Malta, where they enjoyed family excursions aboard a luxury yacht, as well as bowling trips and tours of the Mediterranean.

“They had fun with their kids,” an onlooker told PEOPLE. “They were friendly with everyone and smiling.”

In issue 225 of Total Film magazine, Brad Pitt reveals the gruelling training regime he went through in order to get ready for gritty war movie Fury.

Inside the issue – which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad – Pitt tells us that the training for David Ayer’s movie was anything but a cake walk.

“We studied tactics, we went to visit bases, we had an endless reading list,” Pitt laughs.

“We had these crazy texts in the middle of the night describing the character. It culminated in this bootcamp situation, which was just a real eye-opener for us.”

He adds: “We want to be pushed to places we haven’t been.”

Like all superstars, Brad Pitt has taken his hits: from the press, from the studios and, while making his latest film, Fury, even fellow actors took a swing. And now, as GQ’s latest cover star, he’s breaking cover. In our exclusive and candid interview, the actor talks family life past and present, the perils of living in a tank for four months and the power of the word ‘no’.

Elsewhere you’ll find Phoebe Eaton on the mysterious death of L’Wren Scott, a report on James Foley and the new chaos of kidnapping, and all the autumn/winter trends you need to know as the weather begins to wind down. We’ve also got a rundown of the foremost female networkers of our generation in the first-ever GQ 100 Most Connected Women in Britain list.

Here, see an exclusive preview of Brad Pitt’s cover shoot along with some choice quotes from our interview – and be sure to pick up the issue to read it in full this coming Thursday.

On marriage
“I wouldn’t say [marriage is] just a title. There’s more to it than that.”

On what he thinks his friend George Clooney meant when he recently called Pitt “unreachable”
“Well, you know, George is extremely accessible. He’s one of our best representatives. He’s funny as shit. He’s a joy to be around. I guess maybe I’m more of a miserable bastard. [laughs]. I’m a bit of a loner you know? I’m more quiet by nature. And coming from, you know, hillbilly country, I’m probably more reserved.”

On choosing work
“I’m actually very snobbish about directors. I have to say no all the time. ‘No’ is the most powerful word in our business. You’ve got to protect yourself… To leave home, it’s got to be worth leaving. It’s got to be worth it.”

COURTESY OF PEOPLE/HELLO! MAGAZINE! NO ABUSE INTENDED

We’re finally getting an inside look at Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Aug. 23 nuptials. Check out the pics from their big day, including a first look at Angie’s breathtaking designer gown!
Angelina Jolie, 39, and Brad Pitt, 50, have finally shared photos from their secret wedding! Angelina is every bit the stunning bride, especially with her one-of-a-kind wedding dress!

Brangelina tied the knot in the chapel of Château Miraval, the couple’s estate in France on Aug. 23, and now we’re getting a glimpse at the big day.

Wedding photos of the family and the moment Brangelina said “I do” were revealed. Brad just couldn’t wait to kiss his beautiful bride!

Angelina wore a breathtakingly unique dress, as seen on the covers of People and Hello! Instead of a normal wedding gown, she let her kids have a part in styling her dress.

Luigi Massi, the master tailor at Atelier Versace, sewed designs from her kids’ drawings into the dress and veil, People reports. We love it!

“Luigi is like family to me and I couldn’t imagine anyone else making this dress,” Jolie told People. “He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together.”

Brad opted to wear a suit from his closet. However, he had to borrow a tie from one of his sons because he forgot his, the outlet reports. Too funny!

The couple decided to wed after nine years and six children together.

“It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter,” the couple told Hello! magazine. “It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family.”

We hope this doesn’t mean you’re giving up your day job, Brad.

I’m a farmer now.

That’s Brad Pitt — actor, producer, father, partner, do-gooder — announcing yet another career shift to Wine Spectator in their June issue. The magazine sat down with Pitt at his and Angelina Jolie’s $60 million Miraval estate in Provence:

I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October: Are we picking today? Where are the sugar levels? How is the acidity? Is it going to rain? It’s been a schooling for me. In the off months, I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land.
(Didn’t Dubya pass the time clearing brush off his land?)

And lest you think that rose the Jolie-Pitts released last year to great acclaim was merely a lark:

What really interests me now are the reds … We envision a superb Provence red. A super Provence. Give us seven years … I asked the question, ‘Why can’t we make world-class wine in Provence?’ Let’s approach it like a film, and let’s make something we can be proud of and people can enjoy.

But don’t go thinking Miraval is your average $60 million farm:

We became impassioned with this place, which could produce its own wine, its own food, and become a place where artists could congregate and share ideas.

Angelina Jolie says she and her fiancé Brad Pitt have received some very strong input about their big day.

“We are discussing it with the children and how they imagine it might be,” Jolie, 38, who stars in the new film Maleficent, tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Which is verging on hysterical, how kids envision a wedding.”

“They will, in a way, be the wedding planners,” she says of Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 7, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 5. “It’s going to be Disney or paintball – one or the other!”

The Oscar winner, who briefly shares the screen with daughter Viv in Maleficent, out May 30, also opens up about how parenthood has transformed her relationship with Pitt, 50.

“You’re not lovers or boyfriend and girlfriend as much as you are a family,” she says.

Whether she’s tackling films, family, or philanthropy, Angelina Jolie has never been one for small measures. As she prepares to terrify children worldwide as Disney’s deliciously evil Maleficent (the film opens on May 30th), the actress and director works with Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane on a shoot that spotlights her stripped down, very real self for ELLE’s June cover—as well as a 16-page portfolio that will be featured in more than 20 editions of ELLE around the world.

Jolie spoke candidly with ELLE deputy editor Maggie Bullock about life with her fast-growing children (Shiloh’s got a half-pipe!), doing only the work that really matters (including the biggest passion project of her career), and why she and Brad are still passionate and “more interested in each other” than ever.

In this exclusive preview, Jolie reflects on the perception of her early years in the spotlight:

The tumult of her twenties, was “misinterpreted as [me] wanting to be rebellious,” Jolie says. “And in fact it wasn’t a need to be destructive or rebellious—it’s that need to find a full voice, to push open the walls around you. You want to be free. And as you start to feel that you are being corralled into a certain life, you kind of push against it. It may come out very strange, it may be interpreted wrong, but you’re trying to find out who you are.”

What she hit upon was a deep and abiding fear “of a life half-lived,” she says. “I realized that very young—that a life where you don’t live to your full potential, or you don’t experiment, or you’re afraid, or you hesitate, or there are things you know you should do but you just don’t get around to them, is a life that I’d be miserable living, and the only way to feel that I’m on the right path is just to be true to myself, whatever that may be, and that tends to come with stepping out of something that’s maybe safe or traditional.”

On what she used to think her life would be like…

Brad Pitt won’t remember you. If you’ve met him, he’ll have no idea who you are when he meets you again. Even if you’ve had what he calls “a real conversation,” your face will start fading from his memory as soon as you walk away. He’ll try to hold on to its outlines, but your features will suffer an inexorable erasure, and the next time he sees you you’ll be brand-new to him. He used to try tricking those he’d forgotten into thinking he remembered them, or at least waiting them out for a clue or scrap of context. But then he decided to experiment.

“So many people hate me because they think I’m disrespecting them,” he says. “So I swear to God, I took one year where I just said, This year, I’m just going to cop to it and say to people, ‘Okay, where did we meet?’ But it just got worse. People were more offended. Every now and then, someone will give me context, and I’ll say, ‘Thank you for helping me.’ But I piss more people off. You get this thing, like, ‘You’re being egotistical. You’re being conceited.’ But it’s a mystery to me, man. I can’t grasp a face and yet I come from such a design/aesthetic point of view. I am going to get it tested.”

He is convinced he has that thing, that condition he read about a few years ago. What’s it called? Is he pronouncing it right? That’s it: prosopagnosia. It’s gotten to the point where he doesn’t even like going out — “that’s why I stay at home” — but he’s also a public person, the center of crowds. “You meet so many damned people,” he says. “And then you meet ‘em again.”

And so, if you ever meet Brad Pitt, you should know a few things: He’ll probably forget you. He’ll probably worry about forgetting you. He’ll probably worry that you’ll think he’s an asshole for forgetting you. And then he’ll probably do or say something that will inspire you to tell people that you just met Brad Pitt, and he’s not an asshole at all….

“He took me through how excited he was when he read the book, what was exciting for him, the geopolitical aspect of it,” screenwriter Damon Lindelof tells Vanity Fair contributor Laura M. Holson in the June issue of Vanity Fair of meeting Brad Pitt to discuss the star’s troubled zombie project, World War Z.

Lindelof says Pitt explained, “‘But when we started working on the script, a lot of that stuff had to fall away for the story to come together. We started shooting the thing before we locked down how it was going to end up, and it didn’t turn out the way we wanted it to.’” The actor asked him to watch an edit, and told him, “The thing we really need right now is someone who is not burdened by all the history that this thing is inheriting, who can see what we’ve got and tell us how to get to where we need to get.” Lindelof tells Holson the ending was abrupt and incoherent, but more importantly they were missing a large chunk of footage.
