In The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Brad Pitt gets a glimpse of his future. Aged by makeup and prosthetics, Pitt’s normally handsome face is covered with wrinkles.

But the two-time PEOPLE Sexiest Man Alive didn’t mind. “I had a little control over it. I got to shape it and sculpt it,” he tells PEOPLE. “I doubt gravity and time will be that kind.”

Both Pitt and Jolie were nominees at this year’s SAG Awards: Pitt, 45, for Button and Jolie, 33, for her role in Changeling.

On the red carpet, Pitt called the arrivals scene “crazy,” but said he doesn’t get too nervous. “We’ve been doing it a little while,” he says. “It’s really a nice time for us to come and catch up with our friends we haven’t seen all year. It’s a good night.”
