In an interview with Parade Magazine, Brad Pitt talks about a bunch of fun shit including where he likes to bone the bones, his continued support for gay marriage, Christianity and heaven’s weed.
You know, Brad Pitt interviews usually make my face look like I got a lemon wedge stuck in my asshole, because I cringe so much, but I didn’t do that once during this one! On the cringe meter, this interview gets a 0.1. Besides, Brad Pitt co-signs my upcoming wedding (in my imagination) to Anderson Cooper and that’s all you really need to do to win me over (for now).
The entire interview is longer than longer, so you can click here to read the whole thing. Below are just a few quotes.
On why he won’t marry St. Angie right this second:
“I have love in my life, a soul mate—absolutely. When someone asked me why Angie and I don’t get married, I replied, ‘Maybe we’ll get married when it’s legal for everyone else.’ I stand by that, although I took a lot of flak for saying it—hate mail from religious groups. I believe everyone should have the same rights. They say gay marriage ruins families and hurts kids. Well, I’ve had the privilege of seeing my gay friends being parents and watching their kids grow up in a loving environment.”
On Prop 8:
“It’s ridiculous that Prop 8 took away gay people’s right to marry! I have no understanding of that kind of hatred. Maybe it’s fear of difference or of the unknown. If you feel belittled, maybe you need someone else to belittle to feel powerful. It’s the only way I know how to explain it. You’ve got religion telling you what to think about homosexuality, about marriage. They say homosexuality is a choice, a lifestyle, something you can be cured of, and that isn’t true. But if you’re tucked away and have no friends who are gay, you’ll believe what the preachers say. Just think of it in terms of being in love–how would you feel if someone told you that you couldn’t be with the person you loved?”
On spiritual stuff:
“I grew up in a Christian community and for me the positive thing was that once a week, on Sundays, we focused on bigger issues. But the negative to me is that it was very stifling in the end because it was about what you can’t do. Now, Christians will argue, ‘That’s not true.’ To me, I just found Christianity to be, ‘Don’t do this, don’t do that.’”
“There’s real value in the quality of life in France. They’ve got a great healthcare system, great education. The Lycee Francaise is a bilingual international school that works for us because we can plug the kids into the school program even if we are off doing a movie somewhere, like London or New York. Most places have a Lycee program.
On smoking the good shit in the olden days:
“I liked to smoke a bit of grass at the time, and I became very sheltered. Then I got bored. I was turning into a damn doughnut, really. So I moved as far away from that as I could. I was done. In Missouri, where I come from, we don’t talk about what we do—we just do it. If we talk about it, it’s seen as bragging.”
On the grotto behind the waterfall in his L.A. house:
“It is a great place for sex.”
Okay, can you really picture the pristine St. Angie of today wet humping on Brad behind a waterfall? Old Angie, yes. New Angie, no. Besides, if her skinny ass rubs against rocks, it would probably start a damn fire!
And here’s a few pictures of Benjamin Button looking a little constipated while posing by himself and with a dog friend. Also, is it just me or does he kind of have STAINS’ eyes in the cover picture? Cuuuuuuuupcakes!
