Brad Pitt is only getting more handsome with age.
The 51-year-old actor recently posed for the cover of V magazine**, showing off his legendary good looks. He also bears a striking resemblance to the iconic Robert Redford in the new photos, who he memorably worked with on 2001’s Spy Game.
Inside the magazine, Brad works a ’70s vibe, and it’s safe to say that he completely pulls it off.
The By the Sea star opens up about his highly anticipated new romance drama in the accompanying interview, and what it was like being directed by his wife, 40-year-old Angelina Jolie. Brad and Angelina play a married couple in the film — set in mid-1970s France — who experience some heavy ups and downs in their relationship.
“It’s surprising how much I enjoy the direction of my wife,” Brad says. “She’s decisive, incredibly intuitive, and might I say sexy at her post. I trust her with my life.”
The two memorably worked together on 2005’s Mr. & Mrs. Smith, but he makes it clear that their latest project together couldn’t be more different.
“Mr. & Mrs. Smith this is not,” he stresses. “By the Sea deals with that period when the honeymoon is well over and the couple is faced with the banality of every day and the pains of the unplanned. There are no Hallmark cards that define the next chapter, or the value of a history together. So who are you?”
