Brad Pitt grape skincare from Angelina Jolie Vineyard

Brad Pitt’s upcoming genderless skincare line, Le Domaine Skincare, is based on grapes grown on the French vineyard he and Angelina Jolie are locked in a long-running legal battle over.

In a new interview with British VogueThe Hollywood heartthrob, 58, spoke about the launch of his brand, which was created with the help of the Perrin family of winemakers and uses antioxidant grape-based ingredients from Château Miraval, the Correns winery, southern France, in which he has bought a controlling interest from Jolie, 47, in year 2008.

The Château Miraval is where they got married and vacationed with their family. Jolie reportedly sold her 50 percent stake in the winery to Tenute del Mondo in October 2021.

While Pitt didn’t name Jolie in his most recent interview, he said his purchase of the property led to his unlikely path into the skincare and wine industries.

“Landing here – at Château Miraval – opened up a lot of ideas that I wouldn’t normally have considered,” said Pitt. “And a big part of that is sustainability, this idea of ​​zero waste is something that’s really important to this space and it’s important to me. But listen, when we got here, I mean, I never thought of having a winery either!

“I just wanted a nice base in this area and there happened to be a winery. And randomly bled tons of money. So we had to get to work. And then we went looking and found Marc [Perrin] and his family.”

Pitt’s skincare line announcement comes weeks after a company founded by his ex-wife Jolie filed a $250 million lawsuit against him over the French estate.

Court filings filed Sept. 6 accuse Pitt of attempting to take control of the 1,300-acre estate “in retaliation” for her controversial “divorce and custody case.”

According to the lawsuit, both stars invested tens of millions of dollars to improve and modernize the property, although Pitt is accused of wasting a fortune of the company’s resources on “vanity projects,” including more than $1 million on a swimming pool.

The former Hollywood power couple announced the end of their marriage in September 2016, with Jolie citing “irreconcilable differences” in their divorce filing.

While Mr & Mrs Smith Co-stars, who tied the knot in 2014 but were declared divorced in 2019, have since feuded over factors including custody of their children and Jolie’s sale of her stake in her wine business in France.

Pitt said in documents filed June 3 in Los Angeles County Superior Court that Jolie intentionally “attempted to harm him” by selling her shares, as he claims they agreed to sell their shares in the company never sell without first obtaining the consent of the other.

Corresponding personsPitt has said that he has grown the winery “into a multimillion-dollar global corporation and one of the world’s most respected rosé wine producers,” while blaming Jolie for “having nothing to contribute to Miraval’s success.”

According to Pitt’s filing, Tenute del Mondo is “indirectly owned and controlled by Yuri Shefler, the Russian billionaire who controls the Stoli Group.” Pitt said the company is “anxious to take control of Miraval.”

Pitt said Jolie’s company Nouvel owed his company Mondo Bongo the right of first refusal before the sale, and he is now seeking damages “to an extent that can be proved in court” and for the sale to be declared. Null and void.” Pitt is seeking a jury trial against Jolie.

In court documents, Pitt’s legal team has accused Shefler of launching a hostile takeover of Miraval and attempting to obtain “confidential and proprietary information for the benefit of his rival company.”

The team said, “Jolie tried to force Pitt into a partnership with a stranger, and worse yet, a stranger with toxic associations and intentions.”
