Brad Pitt calls Newman and Clooney “the most beautiful men in the world”


Brad Pitt has been a Hollywood heartthrob throughout his decades-long movie career, but he knows he’s not the only handsome guy.

Hot on the heels of announcing his new Le Domaine skincare line, the 58-year-old actor revealed his top picks for Hollywood’s hottest men past and present.

In a new interview with Vogue on Wednesday, the Oscar-winning actor noted how late filmmaker Paul Newman and his friend George Clooney are “the most beautiful in the world.”

“You know, in the acting world, because that’s my day job…the immediate go-to is Paul Newman, because he’s aged so gracefully,” Pitt said. “According to all reports, [he was] a truly special, generous, warm and truthful human being.

When the ‘Bullet Train’ star was asked who he thought was ‘handsome’ in what is now Tinseltown, he named his pal Clooney, 61.

“I have to name that f-ker George Clooney, because why not?” Pitt added. “Because usually I always take him out and he always takes me out. And this time, I’m going the other way, just this once.

“This one’s for you, George.”

Pitt announced her foray into the beauty industry on Wednesday, with the release of her new genderless skincare line, Le Domaine.

Launched in October, the eco-brand uses active ingredients sourced from the Perrin family’s Château de Beaucastel vineyard in France’s Rhône Valley. Prices will range from $80 for The Cleansing Emulsion to $385 for The Serum.

Pitt told the fashion publication in the same interview how ex-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, his wellness and lifestyle brand empire, inspired his business.

“I love what Gwyneth has done [with Goop],” he said. “She’s still a dear friend and she’s built this empire. She’s always had that in her as a curator, and it’s been a nice creative outlet for her.

According to the brand’s website, Le Domaine “wishes to help slow the process of skin aging and give everyone, regardless of gender or skin type, the opportunity to age well.”

In a profile for British Vogue, Pitt revealed an idea for a movie that never got made with his old friend Sandra Bullock.

The film’s long-lost plot involved a couple on the QVC channel, who were successful in selling products and eventually divorced.

“Sandy [Bullock] and I once tried to develop an idea of ​​a husband and wife team, who were QVC’s most successful salespeople, but we’re gonna get divorced, we hate each other, and we put it on the air while we’re selling things,” Pitt recalled.

“That’s all we have.”
