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.

Brad Pitt is handsome while posing on the cover of the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, out on newsstands tomorrow (October 2)!

The 49-year-old actor is joined on the cover by his 12 Years a Slave co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor.

“Game on, f–ckers,” Brad told the magazine about his production company Plan B‘s mantra.

USA Weekend

Five minutes after the final frame of USA WEEKEND’s photo shoot, Brad Pitt, 49, casually elegant in his own black clothing and gold jewelry that coolly bests the garb assembled by a styling team, orders a latte and takes a seat. He’s solo — no publicist, no entourage — in a private room near the airy, all-white studio. Zombies are on his mind, and so is speed.

“In my younger days, I used to love the big adventure (photo) shoots. But now it’s fine,” he says with a smile, snapping his fingers, his right hand adorned with a thick gold ring. “Get in and get out. Everyone knows what I look like.”

Indeed. And yet the world’s most famous movie star, and half of the world’s most famous couple, lives — and moves — in a startling amount of secrecy, given the swarm of photographers hovering outside, waiting for this very interview to conclude.

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….

Brad Pitt bounds into a suite at the Waldorf-Astoria, doles out a quick handshake that turns into a hug, and sprints to one of the three windows in the room. He pulls open the curtains and looks at the sleet and rain hammering Manhattan 29 floors below him. Like any commuter, Pitt is concerned about annoying travel delays and getting to work on time.

“I gotta get out of here. I go straight to set,” he says, referring to the London re-shoots of the zombie flick World War Z. “I just buzzed in and am buzzing out. I hit the plane this afternoon.”

Yes, this is what the most famous actor in the world is really like. Shockingly, weirdly, almost off-puttingly accessible. Once you get past the thick layers of security – necessary, as evidenced by a hotel employee who had earlier flipped out in ecstasy after seeing Pitt in person – and peel back all your expectations, fed by years of panting tabloid coverage of everything Pitt, you meet a guy who’s friendly, a bit tired, and exceedingly pleasant.

“He’s the most normal guy. I spent a lot of time with him on those Ocean’s movies – he doesn’t do anything to drum up that insanity. He lives in the middle of that and he’s somehow found a way to not go crazy. He’s not crazy,” confirms his friend Matt Damon, who had just seen Pitt. “I don’t know if that’s his family or his upbringing and now it’s become his children and his wife. It’s incredible – seeing him yesterday, he’s the same great guy from Missouri. I don’t understand how he keeps doing great work. It would seem to me that you would lose your ability to be a human being. I genuinely don’t know how he’s still such a great guy, such a real guy.”

December 1, 2012

The face is hardly wrinkled and the long blond locks appear unchanged, but Brad Pitt, who will turn 49 in December, is increasingly preoccupied with the passage of time and the thought that his rarefied place in movies is fleeting.

It’s now been more than 20 years since Pitt broke out as the heartthrob of “Thelma & Louise.” While nothing has diminished his status as one of the few genuine movie stars on the planet, Pitt says he’s now working as if an expiration date lurks.

“I’m definitely past halfway,” says Pitt. “I think about it very much as a father. You just want to be around to see (your children) do everything. If I have so many days left, how am I filling those days? I’ve been agonizing over that one a bit like I never have before.”

But that sense of urgency has helped fuel some of Pitt’s best, most daring work, including his new film, “Killing Them Softly.” It’s his second with Andrew Dominik, the New Zealand-born director of “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” In the adaption of George V. Higgins’ 1974 crime novel, “Cogan’s Trade,” Pitt plays a hit man operating in a shabby underworld of image-conscious gangsters.

It’s almost surprising how few blockbusters Pitt has starred in over the last decade. Instead, he’s gravitated toward working with revered directors like Terrence Malick (“Tree of Life”) and the Coen brothers, and shaping his opportunities by producing them. His production company, Plan B, produced both “Jesse James” and “Killing Them Softly,” as well as many of his films in between.
