Brad Pitt is featured on the cover of the November issue of British “GQ” and inside, he talks about his marriage to Angelina Jolie, his thoughts on George Clooney and troubled actor Shia LaBeouf.
On the topic of marriage, he said, “I wouldn’t say [marriage is] just a title. There’s more to it than that.”
George Clooney recently called Brad “unreachable”. To that, Brad said, “Well, you know, George is extremely accessible. He’s one of our best representatives. He’s funny as sh*t. He’s a joy to be around. I guess maybe I’m more of a miserable bastard. 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 the topic of Shia LaBeouf, Brad revealed, “Oh, I love this boy. He’s one of the best actors I’ve ever seen. He’s full-on commitment, man. He’s living it like no one else, let me tell you. I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of great actors. He’s one of the best I’ve seen.”
On slowing down his acting career, he said, “I’ve been slowing down for a while now. And slowly transitioning to other things. And, truthfully, I do want to spend more time with my kids before they’re grown up and gone.”
With regard to not being on Twitter, he said, “Listen, I see a benefit in it. You could, you know, combat the misconceptions of the misquotes immediately. And if I’d have had that in my younger days, I’d have used it… because I felt quite used, and completely misunderstood, and misread, and not given the benefit of the doubt. You know, I felt that a lot in my first years. I would have brought some logic to the table, and brought it immediately. But now, at this point, I don’t want to bother with it.”
Lastly, he talked about whether or not he’s happy. He added, “I’ve always believed happiness is overrated, you know? It’s those difficult times that inform the next wonderful time, and it’s a series of trade-offs, of events, of wins and losses.”
