Brad Pitt talks candidly about his recent marriage to Angelina Jolie, Twitter, and why he has such respect for Shia LaBeouf in the October issue of British GQ, in which he covers.
On marriage: “I wouldn’t say [marriage is] just a title. There’s more to it than that.”
He tells the magazine that family time is what he wants to do with the majority of his life now: “I’ve been slowing down for a while now. And slowly transitioning to other things… I do want to spend more time with my kids before they’re grown up and gone.”
And he's not afraid to say 'no' to projects, offering “I’m actually very snobbish about directors. I have to say no all the time. ‘No’ is the most powerful word in our business. You’ve got to protect yourself… To leave home, it’s got to be worth leaving. It’s got to be worth it.”
His take on Twitter: “Listen, I see a benefit in it. You could, you know, combat the misconceptions of the misquotes immediately, and if I’d have had that in my younger days, I’d have used it… because I felt quite used, and completely misunderstood, and misread, and not given the benefit of the doubt.”
“You know, I felt that a lot in my first years. I would have brought some logic to the table, and brought it immediately, but now, at this point, I don’t want to bother with it," he continued.
On working with Shia LaBeouf on Fury: “Oh, I love this boy. He’s one of the best actors I’ve ever seen. He’s full-on commitment, man. He’s living it like no one else, let me tell you. I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of great actors. He’s one of the best I’ve seen.”
