Brad Pitt reveals he’s a Frank Ocean fan: ‘I find this young man so special’

In an interview for the GQ Style‘s summer issue, Brad Pitt, who covers the issue, talked about how he didn’t want to play big roles of people in pain anymore.

“Yeah, I’m kind of done playing those. I think it was more pain tourism. It was still an avoidance in some way. I’ve never heard anyone laugh bigger than an African mother who’s lost nine family members,” Pitt told GQ. “What is that? I just got R&B for the first time. R&B comes from great pain, but it’s a celebration. To me, it’s embracing what’s left. It’s that African woman being able to laugh much more boisterously than I’ve ever been able to.”

In particular, he said, he had been listening to a lot of Frank Ocean. “I find this young man so special,” Pitt said. “Talk about getting to the raw truth. He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one.”

He spoke to his quest to become “un-numb” as well:

Sitting with those horrible feelings, and needing to understand them, and putting them into place. In the end, you find: I am those things I don’t like. That is a part of me. I can’t deny that. I have to accept that. And in fact, I have to embrace that. I need to face that and take care of that. Because by denying it, I deny myself. I am those mistakes. For me every misstep has been a step toward epiphany, understanding, some kind of joy. Yeah, the avoidance of pain is a real mistake. It’s the real missing out on life. It’s those very things that shape us, those very things that offer growth, that make the world a better place, oddly enough, ironically. That make us better.
