Not really sure what the end game with this interview was, but we will never look at Brad Pitt the same way again. Once a washboard-abbed Fight Club hunk who left a good girl from “Friends” to hang with bad girl femme fatale Angie, Brad Pitt is basically now “an LA dad on a juice cleanse” as the author of this bizarre GQ article puts it. Warning: these confusing artsy portraits of him are a lot.
Not exactly DILF material, but sort of like the male version of Regina George’s mom – a mid-life crisis in total denial of reality, trying to cover it up with botox and being into trendy, of-the-moment stuff. For instance, “No, this isn’t that. I interpret a midlife crisis as a fear of growing old and fear of dying, you know, going out and buying a Lamborghini. [pause] Actually—they’ve been looking pretty good to me lately! [laughs]”. Ok then.
And as for his trendy dad attempts, “I’ve been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean. I find this young man so special. Talk about getting to the raw truth. He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one.” At least his mid-life crisis has decent music taste? We have a feeling he discovered Ocean from nosily poking through one of his kids’ iPhones, probably also shooting them a sassy, “you girls keep me young!”
