Don’t let Brad Pitt’s Ladybug fool you in “Bullet Train.” In the trailer alone for the action comedy, Pitt’s curiously code-named assassin gets table-slammed, stabbed, thrown through a glass door and pulled out of the high-speed Japanese train.
Not a problem for Pitt. Even at the road-tested age of 58, the Oscar-winning star had his stunt double-turned-director, David Leitch, watching his back.
“Yeah, it was always, ‘If it’s going to hurt, get Leitch,’ ” says Pitt of their early days as a team, laughing during a Zoom call with Leitch, 46. “I’ve never had a stunt double like Dave, that kind of collaboration. It’s just different now. And then he becomes a director, full circle. It’s just an amazing story. This kind of thing doesn’t happen.”
Brad Pitt is rocking some colorful hues.
The actor, 58, stepped out in summery orange attire while attending a photocall for his upcoming movie Bullet Train in Paris on Saturday.
Pitt’s take on summer casual included a slouchy linen suit in a peachy-keen color. He completed his outfit with a deep orange T-shirt.
The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star accessorized his look with a gold chain and watch, as well as a pair of yellow sunglasses.

We know him as a legendary leading man, a Hollywood power broker, maybe the greatest heartthrob of all time. But Brad Pitt isn’t attached to any of those old conceptions. And, as Ottessa Moshfegh discovers, his ambitions for the rest of his life are more mystical than we ever could have imagined.
Brad Pitt tries to remember his dreams. He keeps pen and paper on his bedside table and records everything he can recall when he wakes up in the morning. “I’ve found that to be really helpful,” he says. “I’m curious what’s going on in there when I’m not at the helm.” He tells me this one recent afternoon in the brightness of his living room, at his Craftsman home in the Hollywood Hills. For a long while, his sleep had been haunted by a particularly persistent and violent dream—the particulars of which he later describes for me in an email exchange.

If you’ve browsed our Father’s Day gift guide, you might recognize the shirt in the photo above. It’s from a new-to-the-goop-shop brand called God’s True Cashmere, which comes highly recommended to us (well, to Gwyneth) by Brad Pitt. Below, we interview the founder, and GP talks to Brad about his involvement in the business, his love of the late Bruce Paltrow, and more.
For holistic healer–turned–Brad Pitt’s business partner Sat Hari Khalsa, the journey to entrepreneurship was, in her own words, divinely driven. “In October 2018, I had a dream where Brad was telling me that he wanted more softness in his life, more green cashmere,” Sat Hari says. Coincidentally, Pitt had said that exact thing to his stylist just two days prior.
Inspired by this vision, Sat Hari set out to make her friend a cashmere button-up based on one she had been given by a client almost a decade earlier. “I knew that these shirts existed, but they weren’t exactly what I wanted, and I couldn’t find them again,” she says. “So I called around to all the different fashion houses to see if somebody could make a cashmere shirt in time for Christmas, and everyone basically said no.”
