David Lynch: "Mankind Was Not Made to Suffer. Bliss Is Our Nature."

Mr. Lynch, did you learn transcendental meditation because you had an anger problem? No. I noticed I did have an anger. Many people have anger and I was one of them. People direct anger at certain people they can get away with—I would take it out on my first wife. What happened was, I started meditating and two weeks later she came to me and said, "What's going on?" I said, "What do you mean?" And she said, "Where is that anger?" She didn't see it anymore. A lot of times when people start meditating they don't see the change see more

He Sings, He Acts, He . . . Designs? Adam Levine on His New Fashion Gig

Levine, wearing a tie-dyed sweatshirt from his Kmart line. Sure, he's the lead singer of one of the most successful bands in contemporary pop music, but Adam Levine is so much more than that. The reality—whether or not his haters (and there are many) want to admit it—is that the chiseled-jawed Maroon 5 frontman is, well, one of the most recognizable celebrities around right now. Much of that, of course, is because of his multi-year stint as a coach on NBC's The Voice, a venture that's likely already caused him to win over the heart of your mother, aunt, and see more

Thurston Moore Talks About His New Album, Sonic Youth, and Sound Experimentation

The past years have hardly been smooth for Thurston Moore: from the indefinite hiatus of Sonic Youth to his well-publicized split with his ex-wife and bandmate Kim Gordon to a subsequent relocation to London in what on the surface seemed like something resembling an escape move. Still, through it all, the guitarist has largely kept his head above water. So much so, he'll tell you, that he's now feeling a certain contentment he's never previously known. "A lot of the joy of the record has to do with a certain inherent happiness that was happening in my world, " he see more

Andrea Riseborough on Birdman, Blockbusters, and How Acting is Like Journalism

To watch Birdman—the new film from boundary-pushing director Alejandro González Iñárritu and, as has been more widely publicized, the triumphant return of Michael Keaton to the big screen after years of what felt like his hiding—is to succumb to two hours of mind-bending deliciousness. Make no mistake, it's hardly easy viewing: there's its simulated appearance of one continuous shot; a camera that zigzags from backstage to onstage and back again; a narrative centered on Keaton's unreliable and psychologically damaged Riggan Thompson, a former big-action superhero-playing actor on the outs with Hollywood and struggling for a comeback (sound familiar?) who plans see more

Felony's Joel Edgerton on Stealing Movie Mementos and Wearing Gold Skirts

Even walking into a fluorescently lit conference room in LA, Joel Edgerton's still the essence of man's man. Decked out casually in jeans, boots and a funky T-shirt, the bespectacled Aussie is the epitome of charm and wit. He's here to discuss his latest film, Felony, which he not only stars in, but also wrote. The movie is a thriller of sorts, where Sydney detective Malcolm (Edgerton) is out one night and has one too many, and a tragedy occurs, leaving a child in the hospital. Two detectives are brought in to evaluate; one, played by Tom Wilkinson is a see more

Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon Break-Dance In Lieu of Traditional Interview

If you're a late-night-talk-show host like Jimmy Fallon and you have, say, the biggest male celebrity in the universe (who happens to be our November cover boy) on your show, how would you interview him? You could, of course, sit across a desk from him and chat about life and his latest project, but, well, how boring is that? And if you have, you know, Brad Pitt, there's certainly some way you could spice up the conversation, right? Well, Fallon figured it out, and the answer was . . . break dancing. Yep, you heard us right. Confused? Excited? see more

The Madden Brothers Play Details

The Madden Brothers sing "Brother" from their album Greetings from California In our September issue, writer David Marchese profiled twins Joel and Benji Madden—known collectively as The Madden Brothers—as they outgrew their roots as members of punk-pop band Good Charlotte and forged a new career path with the release of their album Greetings from California. When we heard they'd be in town, we invited them to our office for a "Sofa Session" performance and they more than obliged: The Maddens sang two songs and answered all our probing questions. (Who's the alpha sibling? Click below to find out). Now, see more

Jason Schwartzman Is the Guy You Love to Hate in Listen Up Philip

Jason Schwartzman isn't an asshole in real life. But he does a fine job of playing one onscreen in Listen Up Philip, the latest indie effort from writer-director Alex Ross Perry. In the film, out this Friday, Schwartzman plays Philip Lewis Friedman, a successful—albeit venomous—young writer who is eagerly awaiting the publication of his second novel. . . and making all those who know and love him, including his doting girlfriend Ashley (played by Elisabeth Moss) and his idol/fellow novelist Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce), miserable in the process. see more

The Brad Pitt November Cover: Letter From the Editor

I'm often asked about the men we put on the cover of the magazine. Usually, the questions are pretty basic: "What is So-and-so like?" or "Was So-and-so nice?" I'll generally offer an equally uncomplicated response. "Really good guy," I'll say. Or "Excited to have him on the cover." For the most part, that's the case. But every once in a while, maybe two or three times in the 15 years I've been the editor-in-chief of Details, we get a real pain in the ass—someone whose ego far outpaces his talent and who is so difficult that it makes looking see more
