Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon are thirsting over Brad Pitt on Instagram and everyone can relate

If you couldn't already tell by their gushing Instagram posts, the fact that they've coined affectionate nicknames for each other and the fact that one made a Christmas wreath covered in pictures of the other - Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon are pretty good friends.

And like all good friends, they have no qualms about sharing their crushes with each other - and the rest of the world apparently. Recently, in fact, the pair bonded over their mutual thirst for Brad Pitt.

This was in response to the shots that were released by GQ Magazine, featuring the 55-year-old actor.

Yep, GQ made Pitt the star of their October issue which included a rare interview with the actor and a photo shoot with plenty of gems.

I mean, just get a load of these striking snaps of the legendary Fight Club actor:

Anyway, Mindy posted one of the gorgeous shots from the shoot to Instagram, with the bold caption: "Good morning to Brad Pitt, and Brad Pitt only."

And that's when The Mindy Project creator and star's bestie, Reese Witherspoon, expressed her own thoughts about Brad and his apparent swoon-worthiness.

"Oh dear," she wrote alongside a heart-eyes emoji - a simple yet revealing comment.

Anyway, thirst-inducing photos aside, the interview Brad did with GQ was pretty deep and thought-provoking. Amongst other things, the actor discussed ageing in Hollywood and in society at large.

“It's just getting f*cking older! he said. “How you become more aware of time, and you've had more experience, good and bad, with people. And your own wins and losses—the older you get, they don't seem like so much of a win or so much of a loss. Who you spend your time with, how you spend time—it has just become much more important to me.”
