Brad Pitt launched a ‘genderless skincare company’ called Le Domaine

Brad Pitt not only terrorized and abused Angelina Jolie and their six children, he also financially abused Jolie for years, specifically over their jointly-held asset, Chateau Miraval. Pitt was actively trying to cut her out of the Miraval business even though she owned half of it and had tens of millions of dollars invested in Miraval. She tried to sell her half to Pitt last year, only Pitt tried to attach an NDA to the sale so she walked away and sold her half to Tenute del Mondo. Tenute del Mondo is now suing the f–k out of Pitt. French authorities have raided Miraval and there’s significant evidence that Pitt has mismanaged Miraval and illegally cut out his new business partners. Well, none of that has stopped Brad Pitt from launching a new Miraval-based business. Pitt recently spoke to British Vogue as he launched Le Domaine, a “genderless” skin care company using grapes from the Miraval vineyard. Some very dumb highlights from this Vogue piece:

Miraval as a creativity hub: “Through the ages, Château Miraval has always been this hub of creativity, it has so many places within it where you want to sit and think and expand and explore, and make beautiful things,” he says from one such vantage point in the well-appointed outdoor living area, which overlooks a football pitch he created for his family. That’s not necessarily reason enough to get into what is already a very saturated skincare market, Pitt concedes. But Le Domaine’s efficacy just might be. “I know there are new products nearly every day that people are trying to launch, but if I hadn’t seen a real difference visually in my skin, we wouldn’t have bothered.”

He never dreamt of launching a skincare brand: “No, and truthfully we wouldn’t have done it unless we felt there was something valid here, something original, something that worked. I get sent stuff all the time and… ugh. It’s just all the same for me. But this last year we have been testing Le Domaine and I was really surprised by the results, and that for me, made it worth going forward.

On the idea of being a “beauty baron”: “If Le Domaine is successful, do we get baron status? Yeah, no, I didn’t [imagine that]. Landing here – at Château Miraval – opened up a lot of ideas that I wouldn’t have normally considered. And a big part of it is sustainability, this idea of zero waste is something that is really important to this area and important to me. But listen, when we first got here, I mean, I never thought about having a winery either! I just wanted a beautiful base in this area and it happened to have a winery. And it happened to be hemorrhaging tonnes of money. So we had to go to work. And then we went out on a search and found Marc [Perrin] and his family.

On celebrity side businesses: “When I started out it seemed shameful to do a commercial, for some reason. You were called a sell-out. I really think the hip-hop guys changed all of that. They made it okay – even cool – to spread your wings a bit, to try some other things. And now it’s really exciting that you can, you know, explore other corners [of your creativity] like the old Renaissance artists in a way. And I love what Gwyneth’s done [with Goop]. She is still a really dear friend, and she has built this empire. She has always had that in her as a curator, and it’s been a lovely creative outlet for her. In fact, come to think about it, she was probably the first one who got me to even wash my face twice a day… maybe.

Why is Le Domaine’s approach genderless? “Again, I don’t know if it’s just that I believe in being all-inclusive as much as possible? Or maybe it’s about us guys needing help from others in understanding how we can treat our skin better? I mean, I probably got more from my female partners in the past. We kept the smell very neutral, very fresh, and very, very subtle. I mean, I’m the kind of person who will change hotel rooms if I can smell the cologne of the last person who stayed there! It’s too much! It’s too strong! Keep it subtle. Let people come to you. Don’t force it on others. That’s my feeling (laughs). For smells, I mean. I stand by that for smells!

While I know Brad’s CAA publicity team probably banned questions about the Pitt-Jolie divorce and his physical and financial abuse of Jolie, it’s still incredibly disappointing to see British Vogue just… completely ignore every single story about Brad’s abuse. Not even a roundabout question or statement about the release of the FBI file or the lawsuit against Pitt and Miraval. Is this how it’s going to be now? No one wants to miss out on access to Pitt? What shoddy journalism, even for a fashion magazine.

As for the actual interview and “genderless skincare” and whatever the f–k this is, it just reads as parody, honestly. Pitt doesn’t know what the f–k he’s doing. He has no interest in demonstrating the product, he can’t explain why Le Domaine is something new and interesting (Vogue just repeats some product details from the promotional materials, they couldn’t even get Pitt to explain it). It’s also a f–king joke because the beauty and skincare industries are SO oversaturated right now with celebrity lines.

    As if I’d ever by skin cream from that fool – I mean look at him

  2. CL says:

    I found out about this line yesterday, but ONLY because #BradPittIsAnAbuser was trending on Twitter. So great to see there are people out there calling out this whitewashing of his image!

  3. K8erade says:

    I hate how this abusive POS is still being allowed to make money. Besides the skin cracks are starting to show. Why would I want to buy skincare from someone whose skin looks like paper mache?

    Now if Angelina Jolie came out with a skincare line I’d buy it up because her skin looks amazing.

  4. Karkopolo says:

    Even if he wasn’t a human trash bag, he’s not a person who makes me think “omg yes I need their skincare routine”

    All skincare is genderless, brad. What even.

    • SophieJara says:

      Thank you Karkopolo! What even is gendered skin care? I am so over this total POS old man thinking he can put on a skirt and throw some of our queer words and clay around to clean up his image. He’s modern and cool and that means he couldn’t possibly hit his family! He is beyond gross.

  5. susan says:

    he’s doing coffee pod ads too. I keep thinking, “Brad Pitt, you’re no George Clooney”.

  6. Chic says:

    Completely trying to whitewash his behavior and reinvent as a informed hipster.

  7. Nuzzybear says:

    His skin has always been crap, though! Beautiful younger face, but crap skin. Acne scars and pits, etc. This one is just weird.

  8. JaneBee says:

    Does his new skin care line help repair the bruises of the your children when you physically assault them? Go to hell, Brad.

  9. Ceej says:

    I guess he hopes name dropping Gwyneth will get her to promote his product in goop so rich white ladies buy it for their husbands.

    His nonsense about the winery being a place of creativity because it’s got nice spots to sit is about as deep or intelligent as he seems to be.

  10. [insert_catchy_name] says:

    Wow, he sounds like an old fart doing a sponsored ad.

    Was surprised there was no post on his “sculpting”..

  11. Amy Bee says:

    Why is he still being allowed to continue with his life as normal as if we didn’t just find out what he did on the private jet? This is unacceptable.

  12. girl_ninja says:

    These horrible white men are allowed to abuse their wives and abandon their children and note be held accountable for it. Pit and John Depp are just allowed, make money and move on. Just disgusting.

    • Jaded says:

      Not just white guys — Chris Brown, 50 Cent, Terrance Howard, Mike Tyson, OJ Simpson, Joe Budden, Dennis Rodman….I could go on.

  13. lucy2 says:

    I guess it’s Gwenyth’s turn to be used by him again. Jen was useful to him around award season a few years back, and now that he’s shilling skin care (?) he’ll use G’s presence in that market to bolster himself. User and abuser.

    “the well-appointed outdoor living area, which overlooks a football pitch he created for his family.” Hmmm…the family that won’t visit him there anymore?

  14. Raq says:

    This is the domestic abuser who’s known to be stinky…who just admitted he wasn’t washing his face. Selling these products for hundreds of dollars… oh and his art? There’s 9 figures in that huge installation- 2 are of him. Which means there’s 7 others and maybe I’m reading into the obvious violent nature of his inner thoughts but I’m almost certain those 7 are the people who he abused & traumatized.

  15. Roo says:

    I’m curious about his target demographic. At those prices, Is he aiming for the La Mer and Sisley buyers? Is he trying to appeal to younger buyers by being genderless? It doesn’t sound like a well-designed campaign.

    And what are the benefits of the products that make them stand out from every other line?

  16. SarahCS says:

    This popped up on my IG feed yesterday and I hid it. Ugh. At least some people are calling him out but those with power clearly have no desire to shut him down and hold him accountable for his actions.

    I also imagine Caudalie would like a word.

  17. Mslove says:

    The first thoughts that pop into my mind when I see or hear the name Brad Pitt, isn’t actor, humanitarian, or skin care guru. It’s abuser, liar, and most importantly, horrible father. So, good luck with that lame skincare scheme, and good luck with the Tenute del Munro lawsuit.

  18. S808 says:

    There’s so many celeb skincare lines and I don’t think there’s a single one worth trying.

  19. Bree says:

    Paltrow, Clooney, Aniston, and Bullock all got name-dropped by him yesterday and today. So transparent. Focus & headlines go to fawning over these “Hollywood pals”.

  20. Jaded says:

    Brad Pitt is the last person I’d think “Ooooh he has great skin”. No, he has great photoshop. He actually has a lot of acne scars so whatever stuff he’s done to mitigate it doesn’t come out of a jar, it comes from laser resurfacing and juviderm. And skincare is genderless. Mr. Jaded’s always digging into my stuff and it ain’t some overpriced celebrity crap either – Neutrogena, Olay, L’Oreal are just fine for me.

  21. JCallas says:

    Pitt must have the most powerful PR firm in the world. Anyone else would have been cancelled.

  22. LTavlas says:

    Everything about this is disgusting and infuriating, and I hate that we are going to have to endure yet another Brad Pitt awards-season “charm” offensive (both for Babylon and Blonde), which will be completely facilitated by the trade and mainstream press. All I can say is that, if ANGELINA JOLIE, the picture of privilege (nepotism, wealth, insane beauty) can’t win the PR war against her mediocre ex-husband, what chance does the average woman have against her abuser in this society?

    That being said…I can’t help but feel like she has an ace up her sleeve that she’s waiting to utilize when the time is right. Don’t forget that for years she ran her own PR and was masterful at rebranding from wild child to humanitarian mom. She is for sure keeping an eye on what Brad’s doing and biding her time. And as she accumulates allies like Salma Hayek and who publicly align with her…that all feels like a long game for something that will gloriously come to a head at some point. Maybe as an Angelina stan it’s just wishful thinking, but I really believe she’s too smart and too savvy to let Brad’s BS eclipse her truth.

  23. Woo woo says:

    Yuck. I’m disgusted by this 60 year old decrepit abuser, man-child.

  24. MsGnomer says:

    Lest we forget, he also tried to sell us on his furniture design products a few years ago as well. Not just wine and skin care and movies and charity fraud….
