Brad Pitt has landed on the cover of GQ’s July/August issue. The leading man talks with author Ottessa Moshfegh for the accompanying story, which delves into both his personal and professional endeavors as of late. Interestingly, Pitt reveals that he has been consumed with searching for millions of dollars’ worth of gold at his Provence estate, Château Miraval, following a tip from a man who claimed that a previous owner had buried it on the grounds. “I got obsessed,” Pitt said, adding that he even bought radar equipment. “Like for a year, this was all I could think about, just the excitement of it all.
