For the first time since his split with Jolie last September, Pitt is opening up about his life post-divorce for GQ Style’s Summer issue, with three covers shot by celebrity photographer Ryan McGinley. In the extensive interview, the Oscar winner revealed he’s taking stock of what matters most and making changes to better himself.
“I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called. And you know, after that, we’ve been able to work together to sort this out. We’re both doing our best,” he said. “I heard one lawyer say, ‘No one wins in court — it’s just a matter of who gets hurt worse.’ And it seems to be true, you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you’re right and why they’re wrong, and it’s just an investment in vitriolic hatred. I just refuse. And fortunately my partner in this agrees. It’s just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart.”
“People on their deathbeds don’t talk about what they obtained or were awarded. They talk about their loved ones or their regrets — that seems to be the menu.”
Crack theory, since plot convenience is surely more likely as an explanation, but since I dislike plot convenience, here’s an idea: did anyone else notice that not one but three of Vincent’s associates came to the manor on the same day that Vincent asked Diedrich that he looked out for his sons, should anything happen to him?
So are we supposed to believe that Vincent’s “friends” can randomly show up at the manor anytime they want, or is it that maybe Vincent called Pitt and UT over at the same time as Diedrich for a reason in particular? A reason linked to…
He said that the twins were 7, so that’s 3 years before his and Rachel’s murders, but I still find it a bit odd that 3 Evil Nobles were at the manor on the same day that Vincent asked Diedrich for this favor for the very first time.
…Unless, it’s just plot convenience because Yana wanted to address all the 2CT hints scattered across the whole story in one chapter? …Or unless it’s just because Vincent was totally open minded about his associates showing up whenever they wanted so that he could have any excuse to throw a party. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
