In the latest issue of GQ Style, Brad Pitt gives a candid interview about his life after divorce from Angelina Jolie and his struggles with addiction. The profile of the actor was photographed by Ryan McGinley, an editorial and fine art photographer with a knack for taking celebrities out of their comfort zone.

The two men embarked on what looked to be a rather epic romp through America’s national parks. It’s a wild and rapturous photo essay, to say the least, and the internet is already churning out memes. A few alternate headlines for GQ Style occurred to us:
