Brad Pitt thinks people should ditch their “anti-aging” products.

“I don’t want to be running from aging,” said the 58-year-old star. “It’s a concept we can’t escape, and I would like to see our culture embracing it a bit more, talking about it in those terms.” To that end, Pitt has launched a skincare line, Le Domaine, with the goal of helping people to stop fighting aging and instead “age healthy.”

“Something we discussed [in founding Le Domaine] was this headline of ‘anti-aging,'” said Pitt. “It’s ridiculous. It’s a fairy tale. But what is real is treating your skin in a healthy manner…And I think that we’re learning that if we love ourselves, if we treat ourselves a little better, then there are long-lasting benefits to that.”

Pitt—who said he grew up with a “country,” “Dial soap once a day” approach to skincare—was at work on Le Domaine during the pandemic, when, like many, he had a lot of time to reevaluate his priorities. He recently revealed that he’d quit drinking and smoking with the help of Alcoholics Anonymous and nicotine mints.

“The older I get, the more I think about quality of life, and time expenditure, and I sure would like to point it more in this direction,” Pitt said. “I think after lockdown it seemed to be on a lot of people’s minds—like, how are we spending our time, why are we grinding so much, what are we dedicating our lives to? And I think that family and friends at the end of the day is all that matters.”
