Brad Pitt plays dress up in the pages of Interview's October/November issue, sporting dreadlocks, eyeliner, and even an eye patch to portray different characters in a playful photo shoot. The issue also features a Q&A between Brad Pitt and Guy Ritchie. Guy directed Brad in Snatch, and the former collaborators met up in London while Brad worked on reshoots of World War Z recently. The duo talked about another of Brad's upcoming films, his commitment to family, and why he's a Barack Obama fan. Here are highlights:
- On why he's become choosier about projects: "I want it to be worthy enough of a story to leave the family, you know? They're everything. The family is first . . . I also don't want to embarrass them."
- On how he stays inspired: "You know, right now, this is like a clean-up-the-loose-ends-and-tidy-up-the-place kind of year, which I also look at as a refill kind of year. 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 who he's supporting in the election: " . . . I'm a big supporter of Obama, and I think he's our best answer for the next four years."
- On reshooting World War Z: "We've got some tidying up to do there, but that one is gonna be big and entertaining. My boys are gonna love it."
