Brad Pitt turned 50 today and while it might only feel like yesterday that he was romancing Geena Davis in Thelma & Louise, the AARP have hammered home just how long ago that was (23 years!) by mocking up a magazine cover for their newly eligible member.
AARP, the organisation originally founded for retired people in the States, has celebrated Brad's half a century today with a special edition cover of their magazine, with the coverline reading:
"Acclaimed Actor, Producer, Humanitarian, and Family Man, Mr. Pitt Joins the Club".
The father of six and Angelina Jolie's other half doesn't seem too bothered about his advancing years though, recently telling Ann Curry on the Today show that he has no problem with the aging process:
“So far I haven’t minded a bit. So I have no complaints.”
Happy Birthday Brad! (Twitter/AARP)
Asked if he is “cool” with it, Brad added that he hadn’t put much thought into turning 50 just yet. “Cool? … I don’t know. We’ll see … I’m busy right now so I haven’t thought about it,” he laughed.
And Brad certainly has been busy. The star recently wrapped his new movie, World War 2 drama Fury, which sees him star opposite Shia LaBeouf as a tank commander on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.
Shooting the movie in the English countryside has meant Brad has been separated from his family for awhile, with the star jetting all the way to Sydney this month to catch up with Angelina and their children.
Angie is currently down under working on her latest directorial project Unbroken.
Thelma and Louise may have centred around two female protagonists,but it was a young Brad Pitt's character of J.D who caught everyone's eye. With his cream cowboy hat, ripped torso and double denim, swooning is a dead cert and this film was only the beginning of his half-naked escapades, much to our delight. (YouTube)
