Brad Pitt calls Newman and Clooney the ‘handsome men alive’

Brad Pitt has been a Hollywood heartthrob throughout his decade-long film career, but he knows he’s not the only hunk.

After announcing his new skincare line, Le Domaine, the 58-year-old actor has revealed his top picks for the most attractive men in Hollywood, past and present.

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

“You know, in the acting world, because it’s my day job … Paul Newman is immediately approachable because he’s aged so gracefully,” Pitt said. “According to all reports [he was] a truly special, generous, warm and honest person.”

When asked who he thinks is “pretty” in today’s Tinseltown, the “Bullet Train” star named his pal Clooney, 61.

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

“This is for you, George.”

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

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

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

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

According to the brand’s website, Le Domaine “wants to help slow down 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 a film idea that was never realized with his old friend Sandra Bullock.

The long-lost film plot involved a couple on the QVC channel who successfully sold products and eventually divorced.

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

“We’ve come this far.”
