ohmyGAHH!! Brad Pitt is famous for playing many characters on the big screen, but this time he displays them in a Steven Klein photoshoot for the latest issue of Interview magazine.
Read the highlights from the interview:
On what makes him excited about making a movie at this point
I think I’m at a point now where I feel like I can jump into anything and lay something down that’s quality…But even more as I get older, it’s about the company that I keep. That’s the most important thing to me—that if I’m gonna spend however long it takes to make a movie, give up 14 hours a day for however many weeks or months, then it’s very important for me to know that I’m working with people who I respect and enjoy
More details AFTER THE JUMP.
On the 2012 election
I’m a big supporter of Obama, and I think he’s our best answer for the next four years.
On the Bush administration
There’s an interesting psychology at play in terms of who we are and what we do when given too much room. It started out in the ’90s, under Clinton, with the good intentions of “Everyone should own a house and have a shot at the American dream.” So you open up doors to make that possible by giving people these loans. Then, Bush comes in and deregulates everything, so there’s no one at the helm, and it becomes easier to take advantage of it because there’s no accountability.
On how he keeps himself from being bored
I’m not good at going back-to-back-to-back-to-back with movies, and it’s just now that I’m starting to get my bearings again and a flavor for what’s next. But it can’t be something repetitive that I’ve done before. I’m bored to death by that, and when I attempt things like that, it never works–I end up hurting the movie.
On his most challenging accent
I’ve never done a proper Brit
On how he feels about himself as an actor now
Pretty damn solid. I’d say pretty damn solid.
