He earned his stripes in Hollywood as a cowboy hitchhiker and has been nominated for an Oscar as a man who ages in reverse. Now, Brad Pitt has transformed into a dreaded Rasta man for Interview magazine. The 48-year-old star, photographed by Steven Klein, whips his head back in one image, accompanying his interview with Snatch director Guy Ritchie. Wearing a ripped sweater, and with a full goate, the actor shuts his eyes and appears to be adrift in his own world. Other photographs shot by Klein show Hollywood's golden boy as a rake, a drifter and a hitman. Speaking to Ritchie, the Fight Club star reveals he's becoming more selective with his film roles to focus fatherhood. "I want it to be worthy enough of a story to leave the family, you know? They're everything," he says of his six children with Angelina Jolie. "The family is first."

The actor said he feels accomplished enough in his career to be more discerning, admitting he feels now he can "jump into anything and lay something down that's quality." The actor shares Maddox, 11, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with Jolie, says it's also important he doesn't 'embarrass' his brood. But he's worked long enough to know exactly the type of person he might allow to pull him away from his role as a dad and future husband. "...As I get older, it's about the company that I keep," Pitt says.

Gaga would go ga ga for these shoes

Lady Gaga is notorious for her love of outlandish heels so she will probably be in the front of the fashionista queue to get her hands on the latest pair of fantastical footwear. The 'front heel' Scary Beautiful shoes were designed by South African student artist Leanie van der Vyver as a critique on the fashion industry's quest for perfection. Dutch shoe maker René van den Berg fabricated the wacky design, which landed designer Leanie a nomination for the prestigious Gerrit Rietveld design prize at her university in Holland. der Vyver, from Cape Town, South Africa designed the pair as her graduation project at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. "I wrote my Thesis about how humans have been playing God with their bodies, constantly searching for the ultimate perfection and I discovered that this perfection has reached a climax in the fashion and beauty industry. Heels cannot get any higher," she said. "This design might seem quirky and fun, but it is firstly a critique on how the fashion and beauty industry disregards the human body in it's constant reinvention of the 'new extreme'... the shoes are literally an illustration of what lies beyond this aspirational perfection." van der Vyver explained.

Kunis tipped for lead in Fifty Shades Of Grey movie

Mila Kunis has emerged as the frontrunner for the lead female role in the Fifty Shades Of Grey film. The Black Swan actress -- who was pictured smooching boyfriend Ashton Kutcher as they headed out for dinner in the West Village area of New York last Monday night -- has been tipped to be cast as Anastasia Steele in the movie adaptation of the saucy novel. Mila appeared closer than ever with Ashton, with the actress planting a kiss on her boyfriend's shoulder as they ordered dinner. It appeared Ashton's casual outfit had inspired Mila, who switched her jogging bottoms from earlier in the day for a pair of skinny jeans and a matching buttoned cardigan. The 29-year-old brunette has just been crowned the Sexiest Woman Alive by men's magazine Esquire and it seems her girl-next-door charm has propelled her to the top of the list of actresses being considered for Fifty Shades Of Grey.

The female lead is a naïve character, who becomes lured into an S&M lifestyle by older billionaire Christian Grey. Harry Potter star Emma Watson and Twilight actress Kristen Stewart are also favourites to star in the big screen adaptation of E L James' erotic bestseller.
