There’s a whole lot of Brad Pitt happening in these parts, what with his lame-o Chanel teaser video yesterday and this Interview October-November cover today. We aren’t calling Pitt himself lame, by the way. The decision by the Chanel folks to give us basically nothing in the teaser video, was. But this cover more than makes up for the disappointment mainly due to the amazing photo shoot. There’s a slideshow of some incredible black-and-white pictures of Pitt in different avatars — dread-locked and very sexy, an Hollywood star and a hitman, to name a few. And he rocks every single look. That’s the kind of Pitt we want — lots of him (take note, Chanel.) The interview itself has been done by the actor’s director in Snatch — Guy Ritchie — and the two of them have a long chat about Pitt’s new crime film, Killing The Softly. Pitt says it’s not just about crime, though. It’s also a political film, he reveals, saying, “… And what made me laugh and what I think presents so many parallels to politics was that, what these guys in the film were dealing with, wasn’t really the issue itself, but the perception of the issue. It was about getting the perception right so that the people who were making money could continue to make money and everyone else would fall in line as they were supposed to. Again, that’s something that relates to the way that our economy works—and, really, politics itself works. The political discussion in America is very seldom about the issues—it’s often more about the perception of the issues …” Have a read, and then you can go back to looking at the pictures — we promise!
