GQ released its profile of the veteran movie star Brad Pitt on Wednesday, June 22, and some people instantly found it outrageous. The actor can be seen lying or floating in a dark pool of flowers with his face frozen as he stares into nothingness. Pitt poured his heart out while talking to the magazine and promoting his new film, 'Bullet Train'. Directed by David Leitch, famously known for the 'John Wick' franchise, will put Pitt next to Sandra Bullock, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Bad Bunny, Joey King, Zazie Beetz, Logan Lerman, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Shannon, Karen Fukuhara, and others.

The 58-year-old actor promoted his upcoming movie while talking about his dreams, alcohol addiction, his breakup with Angelina Jolie, and hinted at his retirement as well. "I consider myself on my last leg, this last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?” said Pitt. The cover, however, did upset a lot of people as it made Brad Pitt look anything but cool. Some found it 'upsetting,' some hate the fact that they portrayed him like a corpse, and some said it was a 'jumpscare.' Regardless, the cover was unsettling for many people.

I personally didn’t this it was possible to make this man look bad, and yet here we are."
