I messaged the following to Heather yesterday, while I wrote this post, and I STRONGLY stand by it:
This spoiler from some of the Cannes stuff I’ve been going through will shock you, but holy shit Brad Pitt was a smoke show. Not that he’s not still hot, because he is, but he was like…BLINDINGLY hot. The sort of hot you need to tell people about even though they are aware.
He was/is both blindingly hot AND he really, really loves sunglasses. Cannes is, in fact, a veritable hotbed of sunglasses activity (it’s the beach! It’s summer! It is legit bright out!) and hot hot people.
