In this work Brad Pitt breaks one of Hollywood’s golden rules by revealing all his flaws and wrinkles. In fact, not only did he opt for no photoshopping of his images, Pitt personally requested to be photographed by Chuck Close.

“You can’t be the fair-haired young boy forever. At some point he’ll have to become some sort of character actor. Maybe a photograph of him with his crow’s-feet and furrowed brow is good for him. It humanizes him. It makes him less of a cinema god and more of a person.” – Chuck Close
