Something about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will always get people talking. About them, about their life together, about the six kids. People love a good drama and their story only seems to be about love so everybody is waiting for the drama to unfold. But it just doesn’t.
After Angelina Jolie’s brave confession, there goes (perfect timing, wouldn’t you agree?) Brad Pitt gracing the pages of Esquire Magazine, the June July 2013 issue. He doesn’t look like he aged a day past Interview with a Vampire and he seems to make a name and a casual appearance with Chanel’s ad campaign as a departing point of inspiration. Or so I get the feeling. That the styling of this pictorial is hinting back at his Chanel ad days. And Max Vadukul’s photographs accompany a story written by Tom Junod under the tagline ‘Brad Pitt’s Life is Larger than Yours’.
It’s basically about Brad and his simple passions: photographing and motorcycling. The interview also talks about his noisy family life and, of course, his life partner of eight years already, Angelina Jolie. And I’m thinking the title must be something especially conceived for the male readership as I don’t get its humor or irony.
On one hand, though, I really understand and applaud Brad Pitt’s feature in a magazine right after his partner decided to go public with her medical decisions and talk about her, talk about their life together and himself. On the other hand, though… it’s Brad Pitt. And he seems to take himself so seriously that I can’t do that anymore. To my eyes, he lives in a bubble. Which he created, biensur, but I fail to see its magic. I fail to see his magic. The Pitt-magic eludes me. So I’ll just leave the pictures here, end my rant in a few seconds and hope you’ll enjoy him. If you do. And, why not, share your perspective!
