Brad Pitt is renowned for his charming and easygoing personality. The Fight Club actor has been one of Hollywood’s most well-known men since he landed his comedic supporting part in Thelma & Louise in the 1990s.
But fame also brings unwanted scrutiny, and after his July 2022 GQ cover was released, Brad was the focus of speculation about plastic surgery.
With a blue leather jacket and lying in a pool of water with roses, the Academy Award winner was depicted on the cover photo. Social media people said Brad didn’t look like him in the pictures.
“Next episode on Botched,” one Twitter user wrote in June 2022. “It’s a wax statue of Brad Pitt, right?” another chimed in, whereas a third tweeted, “The Ken auditions closed a while ago,” seemingly about Barbie’s companion.
The Bullet Train actor hasn’t commented on the claims but has opened up about coping with fame’s costs.
“I don’t go out of my way to avoid it; I just don’t seek it out,” he told The New York Times in late 2019. “I realized that you have that ability to make someone feel good for a moment. I’m not trying to say anyone is being brushed with my greatness. I’m trying to say that I have the opportunity to brighten someone’s day. That’s a rare thing.”
The Moneyball star and producer recalled his rise to popularity in the 1990s and how “all that attention really threw [him].”
“It was really uncomfortable for me, the cacophony of expectations and judgments,” Brad continued. “I really became a bit of a hermit and just bonged myself into oblivion.”
He added, “I’ve had moments where I’ve seen pictures of myself from years ago and gone, ‘That kid looks all right.’ But I didn’t feel that way inside. I spent most of the ’90s hiding out and smoking pot. I was too uncomfortable with all the attention. Then, I got to a place where I was aware that I was imprisoning myself. Now, I go out and live life, and generally, people are pretty cool.”
When it comes to “dubious thoughts” from societal pressures to look a certain way, the Golden Globe Award winner noted, “It’s just ridiculous that we would beat ourselves up that way. It doesn’t matter. I spent too much of life wrestling with those thoughts, or being tethered to those thoughts, or caged by those thoughts.”
