Brad Pitt features in Interview’s latest issue in a cover and editorial shot by Steven Klein, who presumably followed a directive not to Photoshop the images (as Brad has notably requested in the past when on the cover of W). Brad appears in the images, wrinkles, pores, and all, styed in various looks by Ludivine Poiblanc. It’s refreshing to see an actor, imperfections and all, looking like an actual human being, but overall, forum members were not particularly impressed.
“I am not a Brad Pitt fan,” Luxx prefaced. “However, he can look better than this. Considerably better. I am shocked they chose that for the cover – he looks like a wizened zombie version of himself. The pictures of him with the pistol are far more flattering. I mean maybe they were going for shrunken and shriveled, but dear god he looks like an extra from The Walking Dead on that cover,” she critiqued.
“I like the shots in his editorial,” justaguy conceded, “but on the cover, he just looks dirty.”
Style Savvy went so far as to say, “That is the most hideous he's ever looked.”
All is not lost for Brad though, |PerfectTonight| got what he was going for. “One word… Amazing! Raw, personal, versatile and introspective,” he described.
Miss Dalloway also got on board. “Love it, all of it. The different looks, the seemingly very little airbrushing…” she posted.
As preoccupied as the world seems to be with how handsome Brad Pitt is, he seems to be more preoccupied with trying to make us forget it.
