Hi there, movie lovers! Today we want to talk about the outstanding actor, Brad Pitt. Brad is known for his work with such outstanding directors as David Fincher, Guy Ritchie, and Quentin Tarantino. Let’s find out, if you knew these facts about Brad.
Before he became successful at acting, Brad Pitt supported himself by moving refrigerators, dressing as a giant chicken while working for “El Pollo Loco,” and working as a limo driver for exotic dancers.
Pitt is a huge fan of MTV’s reality show Jackass. He even asked the cast if he could join them during one of their stunt jokes. He eventually made an appearance dressed in an ape outfit, in order not to be recognized, which would have ruined the joke.
At the beginning of the film Fight Club, the character played by Edward Norton is unable to relate to his own feelings unless he visits support groups. Ironically, Pitt admitted in 2019 that he also had trouble getting in touch with his emotions until he visited Alcoholics Anonymous, saying that “You had all these men sitting around being open and honest in a way I have never heard.” Pitt spent 18 months attending AA meetings and remains sober.
In January 2020, after Bradley Cooper presented him with an award at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala, Pitt thanked him and revealed that he had Cooper to thank for his sobriety. In his stirring speech, Pitt said, “I got sober because of this guy, and every day’s been happier ever since.”
In 2019, Pitt appeared alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, sparking a bromance for the ages. Both actors have shared that they have nicknames for each other. Pitt calls DiCaprio “LDC,” while DiCaprio calls Pitt “lover.”
