The Curious Case of Brad Pitt, Château Miraval, and a Compelling New Luxury Skin Care Line

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.

Have you always had a good skin care routine?

[Very long pause.] No.

I was so sure you were going to say, “Yes!” Because one imagines you would be well looked after…

Well, when I’m looking after, I do [have a good skin care routine]. I just want to keep it simple, you know what I mean? That said, I’m actually thorough now. I’ve been whipped into shape by my dear makeup artist friend—we started together 30 years ago—Jean Black. She is pretty special. So whenever we’re on a film, she keeps me healthy, and then she’s like, “Try this!” and “Try that!”

You look like you have great skin anyway. I can’t imagine it takes much!

No, not really, I don’t, but now…I mean, I have my little, simple regimen.

So, what do you do? Gua-sha?

I don’t even know what that is.

Facials?

Rarely. I get antsy.

Did you ever imagine yourself as a beauty baron?

[Laughs.] I’m not sure what a beauty baron is…

It’s like if you were to achieve Estée Lauder–level success.

If The Domain 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 tons of money. So we had to go to work. And then we went out on a search and found Marc [Perrin] and his family.

A clever idea. You majored in journalism, I’ve read..
