HANDSOME Brad Pitt sizzled in his new GQ as he divulged his feelings on getting older and working less.
The Ad Astra star, who plays an astronaut in his latest flick, last featured on the cover of the magazine in 2017 following his split from Angelina Jolie.
Back then, Brad revealed he’d quit booze and had gone to therapy following their divorce.
Now, the dad of six has opened up to GQ about his career trajectory, spirituality and living with fame.
The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star mused: “It’s been my question the last 15 years: ‘If I’m gonna do the role, what can I bring to it that someone else can’t?
“It’s about bringing my personal experience, my personal humour, my personal, um, embarrassments, and my personal pains.
“When I watch [Christian] Bale or [Tom] Hardy, I can’t do what they do. I love watching them. And I couldn’t step into that role. I want to do the same thing on my end.”
In one shot October’s GQ cover star sported an orange shirt, yellow jumper and worn jeans, as he posed on a motorbike looking as hot as ever.
Sex symbol Brad hid beneath a green hood and aviator shades in another, as he told how he has reached a content place in his life and has even found faith again.
He said: “I’ve gone through everything. Like, I cling to religion. I grew up with Christianity.
“Always questioned it, but it worked at times. And then when I got on my own, I completely left it and I called myself agnostic.
“Tried a few spiritual things but didn’t feel right. Then I called myself an atheist for a while, just kind of being rebellious.
“I wasn’t really. But I kinda labelled myself that for a while. It felt punk rock enough. And then I found myself coming back around to just belief in—I hate to use the word spirituality, but just a belief in that we’re all connected.”

The actor admitted he feels more alone in the physical world as one of the most famous people in the world.
He described being famous as “being that lone gazelle out on the plain.
“And the tigers, you know, they’re in there. They’re in the grass. And you’ve lost the herd. You’re not connected to the herd anymore. And it’s that. It is that loss of privacy. And being hunted.”
