See Brad Pitt As a Hollywood Chameleon

Brad Pitt may play an astronaut flung into space for his new film Ad Astra, but longtime readers of W know that he has always seemed somewhat otherworldly. For his three solo covers of the magazine (and one infamous joint cover with his now-ex, Angelina Jolie), Pitt has been photographed by Steven Klein, Chuck Close, and Mario Sorrenti. As much as he has evolved for the screen (a place from which, at 55 years old, he has decided to slowly remove himself), Pitt has also evolved for W. Ever since he first graced the cover in 1999, the photos of Pitt that can be dug up from the W archives depict him in many roles, most of which engage with different takes on masculinity and all of which could be described as sex symbols: the gritty, Tyler Durden-esque bad boy, the domestic family man playing house in Palm Springs, and the classic silver screen actor, reminiscent of the golden days of Tinseltown. Revisit the rest of Pitt's greatest hits from the W archives, here.
