Brad Pitt channels an “eternal cool” as GQ’s cover star. The Ad Astra actor connects with the magazine for its October 2019 issue. Lachlan Bailey photographs Pitt, while George Cortina looks after styling. Linking up with the magazine, Pitt discusses aging. He explains,

The 55-year-old actor continues,
