After much speculation on his well-being and whether or not he's texting Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt is finally speaking out on his divorce from Angelina Jolie. In his GQ Style cover story, Pitt opens up about the end of his marriage and the current state of his family.
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016 following an alleged incident involving their son Maddox, 15. An FBI investigation into child abuse claims followed but were unfounded. "I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called," Pitt told the magazine. "And you know, after that, we've been able to work together to sort this out. We're both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, 'No one wins in court — it's just a matter of who gets hurt worse.' And it seems to be true, you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you're right and why they're wrong, and it's just an investment in vitriolic hatred."
Pitt and Jolie are also parents to Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10 and twins Vivienne and Knox,8.
"Fortunately my partner in this agrees. It's just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart. If anyone can make sense of it, we have to with great care and delicacy, building everything around that… Our focus is that everyone come out stronger and better people — there is no other outcome," he said. "I see it happen to friends — I see where the one spouse literally can't tell their own part in it, and it's still competing with the other in some way and wants to destroy them, and needs vindication by destruction, and just wasting years on that hatred. I don't want to live that way."
Although the split hasn't been the easiest for Pitt, he's determined to put the kids first. He currently lives in their childhood home in Hollywood Hills, California. "Kids are so delicate. They absorb everything. They need to have their hand held and things explained. They need to be listened to. When I get in that busy work mode, I'm not hearing. I want to be better at that," he said. "I grew up with a Father-knows-best/war mentality — the father is all-powerful, super strong — instead of really knowing the man and his own self-doubt and struggles. And it's hit me smack in the face with our divorce: I gotta be more. I gotta be more for them. I have to show them. And I haven't been great at it."

Lena Dunham and her Girls co-stars, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet, opted to go without any Photoshop on the February cover of Glamour Magazine. Dunham's cellulite on her upper thigh is front and center.
Following the cover's release, the actress took to Instagram to share a message of body positivity.
"kay, here goes: throughout my teens I was told, in no uncertain terms, that I was fucking funny looking. Potbelly, rabbit teeth, knock knees- I could never seem to get it right and it haunted my every move," the outspoken actress wrote. "I posed as the sassy confident one, secretly horrified and hurt by careless comments and hostility. Let's get something straight: I didn't hate what I looked like- I hated the culture that was telling me to hate it."
She continued by calling out those who have bosy-shammed her since becoming famous, "When my career started, some people celebrated my look but always through the lens of "isn't she brave? Isn't it such a bold move to show THAT body on TV?" Then there were the legions of trolls who made high school teasing look like a damned joke with the violent threats they heaped on, the sickening insults that made me ache for teen girls like me who might be reading my comments."
Finally, she concluded the post, "Well, today this body is on the cover of a magazine that millions of women will read, without photoshop, my thigh on full imperfect display. Whether you agree with my politics, like my show or connect to what I do, it doesn't matter- my body isn't fair game. No one's is, no matter their size, color, gender identity, and there's a place for us all in popular culture to be recognized as beautiful. Haters are gonna have to get more intellectual and creative with their disses in 2017 because none of us are going to be scared into muumuus by faceless basement dwellers, or cruel blogs, or even our partners and friends. Thank you to the women in Hollywood (and on Instagram!) leading the way, inspiring and normalizing the female form in EVERY form, and thank you to @glamourmag for letting my cellulite do the damn thing on news stands everywhere today ❤️ Love you all."

1. On why he skipped Kim and Kanye's 2014 wedding: "I was doing my suit fittings in Paris right before the wedding and I just wasn't comfortable. I'm 6'1" and at my most I probably weighed 300 lbs. There were cameras at the airport on our trip there and I was very unhappy with the person I saw in all the pictures. I'm upset I missed my sister's wedding but it was a personal decision."
2. On Caitlin Jenner. "I know how it can be to feel uncomfortable in your own skin."
3. On her sister's exes. "All I want is for Lamar to be healthy and have a positive life and be there for his kids. Even Scott. In our day and age, all this stuff is very normal."
