United States.- Brad PittThe 59-year-old stars in the film which is set in the 1920s as silent film star Jack Conrad, now the actor decided to share a similar point of view to his alter ego.
Unfortunately, that melancholy may be my natural way of being, a congenital melancholy,” the Oscar winner told W Magazine.
But no, I think there’s a weariness that takes over the character as he progresses. There’s a world-weariness that I certainly relate to a little bit,” he added. “Right now, more of us are trying to bring each other down instead of helping each other. I get a little tired.
Brad commented that he immediately connected with the director’s script Damien Chazelle. “I had been following Damien since Whiplash. The script came, and it was 180 pages. I said, “This thing is a masterpiece. But what’s it going to cut?” Because it is very difficult to get 120 pages there”.
And he said, ‘Nothing. I’m going to pick up the pace to one minute per page. I’m going to make it move.'”
Likewise, Pitt praised the filmmaker for the way he tells the plot and commented that his musical training influences his approach behind the lens. “He told me, ‘You know Damien’s movies; there is a rhythm, a syncopation, in the scenes”.
The way you put it together and distribute the information. There’s always the kind of movement that I think comes from his early days as a jazz drummer. I find that I’m looking for that in life, you know? We all need to find the music in the day.”
The first issue of this year’s magazine, Volume 1, Best Performance, will be out on February 7 of this year.
Brad is one of the stars on the cover of the Best Performance issue, others are Cate Blanchett, Michelle Yeoh, Zoë Kravitz, Michelle Williams, Brendan Fraser, Taylor Russell, Daniel Craig, Jennifer Lawrence, among other. In this same interview, Brad said that his favorite on-screen moment of passion was on the late-night soap opera Dallas.
It would have been on the show Dallas. I had to roll in the hay of a barn. I don’t think it had a line. She was rolling and frolicking.” Brad appeared in four episodes of Dallas between 1987 and 1988 as Randy, who was the boyfriend of the character of shalane mccall, Charlie Wade. The actress became his girlfriend in real life, she was 15 years old at the time, now she is 50.

This film was his debut with Jolie, with whom he is the father of six children. “We were shooting in this Deco building downtown, and upstairs, in the penthouse above, we kept seeing people going up and down. so I jumped in. And they were fine with that. [Risas]’
